YAYYY!!! I am so happy you are here and that you are checking me out! My name is Makenzi, but most people call me MJ. I am a easy going, fun/loving, hype girl that captures some of the greatest love stories! I love photography, but I love people more and being able to build friendships with so many awesome people. 

an adventurous destination elopement & wedding photographer based out of the West Coast.

I’m MJ Maiden

hello there

When you look at these pictures, can you tell they are taken of two people who absolutely HATE having their picture taken? No? That's because Makenzi is THAT GOOD! She made us feel so at ease and made the whole experience fun. The pictures of our wedding and our families coming together are amazing and such a treasure. Makenzi captured more than our wedding, she captured the FEELING, which is so hard to do. There are many people who can take lovely photos, but only a few who can make you feel them.
Thank you so much!
You are so easy to work with, funny and loving. We could not have asked for a better photographer.
