I’m Makayla but I mostly go by Mak! Thank you for coming to check out my work, I am currently probably in a Chic-Fil-A Drive Thru because I am only slightly obsessed. I am a wedding and senior portrait photographer based out of Gloucester, VA but I serve all of Hampton Roads and beyond. I love to travel, especially for work, if it means I get to capture some the most special and intimate moments of a love story. That is where my passion truly lies. When I show up on your big day I like to feel like much more than a photographer, my goal is that your day is stress-free, full of smiles, happy tears and fun while I work to document all of these precious moments through my photography. I work to ensure that my clients feel confident and comfortable in front of the camera so I am able to capture their story in the most authentic way possible. I’ve wiped a few tears, fluffed a few dresses and have always done my best to go above and beyond for my clients on one of the most important days of their lives.

I’m so happy you’ve stopped by to check out my work. Have a look around, I can’t wait to hear from you!
