let’s get real

Trusting someone with the only tangible things you will have after your day is said and done is a HUGE commitment. Finding someone that not only connects to you two as a couple but knows what is important to capture is the perfect formula. This is a scary process and huge investment, let my couples reassure you that you are in the best hands.


“McKenzie = the most amazing, personable photographer I have ever met. She uses techniques that make her unique from others and make special day pictures one of a kind! I had reached out to her super late and she managed to make me feel like my day was still so important and she made time for me and my husband. My husband and I both agreed we have never felt more comfortable in front of a camera and so relaxed which made the world of a difference. She was our personal hype man that day and we absolutely loved it and her!! And our pictures were, oh my gosh, amazing. I have looked at them every night since we got married falling more in love each time! Everyone needs McKenzie in their life, fo sho.”

Thank you for reassuring us that we are not awkward at photos and keeping the shoot fun and upbeat! I could not ask for better engagement photos they are simply beautiful!! Can’t wait for the wedding!! “

“I have been waiting to write this review for Mckenzie, because I honestly didn’t know where to begin!.... I had contacted Mckenzie about 4 months before our wedding date in a panic after our original photographer had cancelled on us. She was so easy to get ahold of, always responded right away, and was eager to help us with whatever she could. After our first meeting with her, my husband and I knew that she was going to a great fit and we can honestly say that we are glad our first photographer cancelled. The day of the wedding Mckenzie was soo AWESOME. She got right down to business and took control which is what both of our crazy families needed. Everything ran on time and we even got to sneak away to take pictures at portillos (where she bought us a cake shake and burgers) and round one! The pictures are truly AMAZING and we can’t thank her enough for how wonderful she made the day for us! As soon as you meet Mckenzie you can tell right away photography is her passion and she’s willing to go the extra mile to capture your big day perfectly and uniquely! Any bride would be lucky to have Mckenzie with her on her wedding day!”

“I've been dragging my feet on writing a recommendation for Mckenzie Bigliazzi Photography for over a month now, because words do not do this woman any justice. The intimate experience we shared with Mckenzie not only fueled the fiery passion that my fiancé and I have together, it ignited something beautiful and playful between us that we nearly ignored during the chaos of wedding planning. Everything that she says about the experience is true. She is our friend. She allowed us to open up and show her an intimate side of ourselves only a few get to see. My fiancé and I are normally very camera shy. Right from the moment we met her she set our nerves at ease. She is such a joy to be around. We laughed so hard our cheeks were hurting for the rest of the night. Not only is she an amazing person but she is one of the humblest, extraordinarily talented photographers I've ever had the pleasure to meet. She has this innate ability to pick up on a couple's chemistry and make the whole shoot a beautiful portrait of your love together. Something that I noticed when I was first searching through her photos is that McKenzie photographs her friends and family pretty often. Yet, when I was scrolling through her pictures, I noticed that I couldn't distinguish between her friends and her clients. That is how well she gets to know her couples and how comfortable they feel around her. I hope she will be present for every future milestone in our lives. HIRE HER.”

“McKenzie was absolutely wonderful to work with. The photographer is one of the major if not most important part of your big day. They capture not only everyone who is part of your big day but the raw emotion that you could relive looking at photos and McKenzie is spot on. Another major thing is how comfortable we felt as well as the bridal party. Not only did my girls think she was awesome and part of the crew but McKenzie helped us feel sane. I've been part of wedding parties and not one photographer felt as personable like McKenzie did. She truly loves what she does not only by her hard work but how she presents herself as well. She made sure we had time for ourselves and time with guests rather than focusing on hours on end for pictures and portraits, she captured the true RAW EMOTIONAL events that took place. We love McKenzie and definitely recommend her if you are looking for an amazing photographer with a true talent.”

“Where do I even begin! My amazing fiancé was able to plan a surprise engagement that McKenzie captured beautifully, the day was one of the best days of my life and I’m so blessed to have these photos to look back on and share with family. I have followed Kenzie’s work through Instagram for a year now, so my Fiancé knew just who to get for the job! I can’t wait to have Kenzie capture all our futures memories from here on out! We love her and are so proud to tell everyone who compliments our photos who took them!”

“McKenzie did a phenomenal job at our wedding! She caught so many special moments and discreetly! I hardly noticed her running around us with her camera so while my husband and I were looking through our photos we were like “oh! She got this!”, “wow! She got this too!!” and it made us so excited and happy!!! She also was quick to help with things that weren’t related to her when we were scrambling for things. She went above and beyond!!! Plus, she was an amazing asset for us when our timeline got out of wack and she gave us great insight to getting things back on track. I can’t recommend her enough! Sweetheart, talented, and hardworking! You can’t go wrong with McKenzie! Thank you! You made the day so special and perfect and we truly appreciate everything you did for us!!”

“McKenzie is absolutely amazing! Our engagement session went so smooth and we were so comfortable being in front of the camera with her. She captures the love of a couple through pictures, which is hard to do, but she does it perfectly. I’ve received so many compliments about our pictures since we’ve received them. We’ll definitely be using McKenzie for any professional photos we need taken!”

- Megan + Mike

“I could not have dreamed of a better photographer than McKenzie!! She makes every girl's Pinterest dream come true. She came up with the fair idea on a Wednesday and we made it happen on Thursday! She was so fun and made our session feel like a fun date night! Finding someone with her eye, creativity and editing skills is a rarity and I am truly blessed that we crossed paths!!! We are even more excited for our wedding date to see what other awesomeness she has up her sleeve!”

“Working with McKenzie was great from the very beginning of the process! It was awesome to have a photographer that made the wedding planning enjoyable and completely stress free. McKenzie made us feel confident and excited about our vision and unique ideas for our wedding. My husband isn't a huge fan of getting a bunch of pictures taken, but on the day of our wedding he said that it was fun to take pictures because of McKenzie! She did a great job at making us feel relaxed and she snapped pictures so quickly so it don't take away from the day at all. We love how our wedding pictures turned out! McKenzie perfectly captured the emotions and events of the day. I don't think we could've had a better experience from planning, to the day of, to seeing how the photos show exactly how we envisioned our wedding. McKenzie is understanding, dedicated, and professional and we highly recommend her for your wedding!!”

“I honestly can't even think of a word to describe Mckenzie, because saying she's amazing is an understatement. When it came to planning the details of my wedding, there was nothing that I put more research into than finding a wedding photographer. I had been following Mckenzie on instagram for a while and had become obsessed with her work, so she was of course the first photographer I contacted. Now I wasn't one of those couples that had a big budget saved up for their wedding by any means, so when I first contacted her about pricing I became disappointed and started looking for other options. While doing further research, Mckenzie was still in the back of my mind, so I contacted her again. She offered to meet up with us and found a way to work with us so that we were able to hire her for our engagement and wedding photos.

We had never done professional photos and I had never been comfortable in front of a camera, so I was slightly dreading having my photo taken. By the end of the engagement photoshoot I had become so comfortable and happy that I was actually disappointed when the session was over. Fast forward to our wedding day and it definitely did not go as planned. You know how you see those wedding day mishaps online and you think "I'm glad that's not me"? Well I lived it. We had issues with the runner during the ceremony, my makeup was messed up during photos, I was locked out of my room, etc. But none of this threw Mckenzie off. I was scared that because of these mishaps, my photos might turn out as expected. I was absolutely blown away when I received my wedding gallery. I highly recommend Mckenzie because she's one of the most genuine people I know. She'll become more than just your photographer. She'll become your friend.”
