I’m Mackenzie Madson, a Northern Minnesota wedding & lifestyle photographer. I got married in June 2022 to my husband Allan, but have stuck with my original business name so far! I have a passion for capturing and preserving real expressions and raw emotions in the moment with my camera. I get so excited to capture and document life’s important moments, both big and small!

Photography has been a passion of mine since I was in high school. I was always taking photos with my digital camera and playing with different ways to edit. I took multiple photography classes in college (I attended the University of Wisconsin-Stout and received a BFA in Graphic Design), where I learned everything from shooting product photography to how to make a pinhole camera with a paint can. It was during these classes that I learned the fundamentals of digital photography and formed a really great understanding of how to effectively (and comfortably!) use my camera. I have been shooting lifestyle & portrait photography (family, children, grads) since 2012 and weddings since 2015. I absolutely love working with my clients and providing them with photographs that accurately reflect their personalities and preserve their special moments for years to come, and hope I get the opportunity to do the same for you.

Monday through Thursday, I work at True North Spinal Care as a Chiropractic Assistant. In my free time, I love crafting, watching Netflix, and hanging out with my cats – I have three, Sylvester, Dominic, and Oscar. I’m kiiiiind of a crazy cat lady!

I would love to work with you to photograph the next step in your life, whether it is to honor a graduate, celebrate a marriage, or capture a moment in your family’s life.
