Isaac and I were introduced to Mckenna through a friend, and wow, we are so happy our paths crossed. Mckenna is kind, professional, and honestly is the best hype woman you could ever want. She took our engagement photos and when we got the gallery back, we both cried. She has such an eye for capturing both the natural beauty of the landscape, and capturing us as a couple. As soon as we worked together for our engagement shoot, we knew we needed her there to capture our wedding next year (2022). It has always been a top priority to hire vendors who not only produce outstanding work, but who are above all, amazing human beings. If you are looking for a photographer who creates magical photos that you'll cherish for the rest of your days, look no further. We are so grateful we met this amazing human being. Do yourself a favor and BOOK HER!!!"
McKenna is extremely talented. She captured the most beautiful moments of my husband and I at the beach. She has a gift of making you feel so comfortable and at ease- to be silly and beautiful all at the same time. She captures the heart of the people and not just a photo of them. I would 1000% recommend her to anyone and everyone!

We booked her for our elopement and seriously had so much fun with her! The whole experience was so fun, she helped us plan the big day from the beginning and talked with us a few times prior to check in ahead of time so we could be well prepared to have an amazing day. She seriously will become your new bff in like 5 minutes after meeting her. The pictures truly speak for themselves- they are timeless, romantic, fun, and just everything you could want! I just received our gallery back and y’all - I am STUNNED! They are seriously the most gorgeous pictures and they perfectly captured our special day!!
Thank you SO MUCH McKenna!"
"My husband Chris and I planned a micro wedding in June in Yosemite. We kept our wedding simple and intimate. The only “must” for our wedding was to have Mckenna Photograph our big day. I found her on IG and saw one photo and was sold. I wasn’t even engaged when I discovered her and knew that she would be our wedding photographer before she even knew it. Lol I contacted her and pretty much picked our wedding day based on her availability because she is worth it. This girlie will make you feel like you’ve known her for years. Beautiful soul. Free spirit and so much fun. My family absolutely adored her and your family will too. Book Mckenna Kleiner she’s a true professional and quite the gem. I show my photo gallery to everyone I know and everyone is so in love with her work"
"I cannot explain how spectacular McKenna is! She made our elopement painless and amazing! Her creative style was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. I trusted her process and I could not be more elated with the results. Please please please whatever you do- BOOK HER! From initially messaging her on her website to after she delivered our gallery she was incredibly responsive and helpful. She’s going to be the BEST choice you make for your wedding day!"

McKenna is by far the most talented, detail oriented, fun wedding photographer. She did an amazing job taking every picture we had asked for and was so organized we were able to get the pictures done quick, so we had more time to spend with everyone. McKenna has been taking our pictures since the start and I wouldn’t choose anyone else to capture our special day! I would absolutely choose her as your wedding photographer, she is the best hands down!
Once my husband and I got engaged, besides finding a venue... the photographer was top on my list - as pictures are one of my most prized possessions. We eloped to South Lake Tahoe from Ohio! And I was very lost where to find the perfect photographer to capture our important day... until I stumbled upon McKenna. I began to follow her, and was INSTANTLY amazed by her pictures. My favorite thing is how she captures the moment and so well captures the entire backdrop WITHOUT losing focus on the couples! I knew right away I needed her to be there for our big day! McKenna was great to work with, and was the first person I called after we had a pretty serious accident (2 month prior to our day) with so many emotions and questions of "how am I going to hide my crutches? Or boot? Or what if I cant walk?" And she so kindly reassured me that everything will be okay! She was extremely helpful, along with her second photographer who helped me to safely move around and still capture the most beautiful pictures! 100000% would recommend this amazing, kind soul to help you out for ANYTHING
Where to even start with this amazing person! First off she was great at communicating even when she couldn’t .. she’d always let you know a response is coming soon .. which was always comforting to know! We had a micro wedding in the middle of desert and she was extremely on time and was able to find us easier then some of our guests! Now to her work it’s unbelievable and really matches up with what she puts out there! She’s everything you’d want in a photographer. I’ve been following along with her on social media for a couple of years and to be able to have her was a dream come true and she really lived up to my expectations! She was extremely nice and so fun to be around .. there aren’t enough nice things to say about McKenna! Book her!! You won’t regret it!

"McKenna exceeds all expectations, I knew when hiring her that my photos would everything I dreamed of. She’s sweet and I would honestly consider her a friend after this amazing experience. The photos turned out amazing and she got them back to us so fast. We love McKenna 💗"

I do not even know where to begin with this review for McKenna. She is AMAZING. First of all, I haven’t stopped looking at our wedding photos for the last 3 weeks since we received them! She captured our wedding day absolutely flawlessly, and had to deal with 12 bridesmaids and 12 groomsmen! That is not an easy task, but she did it do easily, efficiently, professionally and made it so fun! Prior to the wedding, it was the same case with our engagement photos. She captured our vibe absolutely perfectly, while also allowing us to bring our dogs with! She was so sweet and helpful, as my husband and I aren’t the most comfortable in front of a camera. McKenna was perfect from start to finish and truly could not have imagined our day without her!!! We will absolutely be using McKenna again in the future.

To put it simply, you need a photographer you can trust on one of your biggest days. Someone who will laugh with you, cry with you, and be there for you every step of the way. That’s where I come in! If you’re considering eloping, you’re obviously not going for the traditional route - and I love that about you! You’re unique, you’re adventurous, and you want your day to be purely about you, your partner, and the love you two share. Every elopement is a new and exciting experience; whether you elope in an enchanting forest, or on breathtaking cliffs overlooking the ocean, I’ll be there and ready to document it all. No matter where your dream elopement location may be, I’m always up for the journey!
IT DOESN'T STOP HERE
I want to be your bff, and like any good bestie, I’ll be sure to make your day as stress free as possible. Need me to carry your shoes if we off-road it to a hidden spot? No problem, that’s why my camera has a strap! Want me to stand knee deep in the ocean to get that perfect shot? Great, I already packed an extra pair of socks! Thinking of waking up before dawn to catch that amazing sunrise moment when time seems to stand still? Can’t wait, I’ll have all my alarms set and some coffees to-go. Looking for someone to help make all your extraordinary ideas come true? Well, look no further - I’m your girl. Every elopement is unique in its own way, so I can’t wait to get to know you and bring your one-of-a-kind vision to life. Now, let’s go make some memories!
When you look back on your elopement photos, I want you to be reminded of all the events, both big and small, that played a role in your love story. I want you to feel the same butterflies in your stomach like you did on date one, that nervous excitement in your heart when you first said “I love you,” and that overwhelming sense of joy when you realized you found your adventure buddy for life. All of these moments are significant chapters in your love story that led you to this day - your elopement! So I’ll try my best to make sure your pictures perfectly illustrate the experiences you both shared on your journey to this very moment. It’s an honor to play a part in helping you share your love story with your closest humans!
