2014 ~ My family and I just finished our seventh session, and second maternity session, with Mackie in the past four years. I swear every time we do a session, the photos turn out better than the last, even though I never think thats possible!
Mackie has shown a few teasers of the maternity session we just had and I am in complete awe of them. We went to Orcutt Ranch in the San Fernando Valley at 10 AM, hoping to beat the heat. Unfortunately, it was alread in the 90s when we got there. My husband and I were both hot and sweaty, and our already-full-of-sass almost 2 year old was putting up a good fight. As always, Mackie was patient with her and kept promising she got some really good shots. She always captures the best moments, but I thought this time would be tough between the heat and crankiness.
After all these years, I should know better than to doubt her! The few we've seen so far are beyond gorgeous. They are so beautiful, I honestly cannot even believe that they are OUR family pictures. They look like something out of a magazine with my familys faces on them.
We have photographs and canvases from the previous six sessions all over our house. I cannot wait to add these to our walls. I am already having trouble choosing which ones to frame vs canvas vs just put in an album and I've only seen 10 of them so far!
I wouldn't hesitate recommending her for a second. If you live a little far, she is more than worth the drive!
2013 ~ Mackie is truly the best photographer I have ever worked with. To say the least my husband was never too thrilled about getting pictures done the first time we used Mackie about 3 years ago. She was able to get him to smile in just about every picture - something previous photographers we used could never do!! To this day, I still cherish those photographs and have them framed all around our home.
Since then, we have used Mackie four more times and have truly loved the moments she has captured of our little family. This weekend, she will be photographing our daughter for the third time to commemorate her first birthday and I am so excited to see the amazing work she will do!!
Mackie is SO easy to work with, she is professional, has reasonable prices, and will do everything she needs to do in order to get the best shots!! You definitely will NOT have a single regret if you go with Mac Dore Photography!!

We hired MacKenzie for our engagement and wedding. She did our engagement pictures and they came out amazing despite the huge crowd at the location. She had our digital prints done and ready for us in a week! We couldn't be more happy with the work she has done and are looking forward to working with her at the wedding!
Sara & Andrew, Married September 2014
MacKenzie is nothing short of AMAZING!!! She is our photographer for our wedding in September. She took our engagement photos and they turned out fantastic. I couldn't be happier with her. She has answered any questions I've had very promptly. I am so excited for our wedding photos! Will post an update after the wedding!
Sepi, Amin & Baby Sofia, February 2018
Due to my OCD "planner" personality, I found and booked Macdore Photography 6 months before my baby girl was born! Since I didn't want to take my newborn out of the house the first week she was home, she graciously agreed to come to my house since I lived close to her. What a beautiful experience!!! Our pictures were amazing! It took about an hour or so to take all the pictures, but everything went smoothly and our baby was so calm! I highly recommend Macdore for your newborn photos. The prints and CD were ready 1 week after the pictures were taken. Thanks again Macdore!!
Ashley & Brandon, Married January 2018
The best decision we made was to have Mac Dore do our wedding photo's for us on our special day! She got everyone to smile and she made them all feel so comfortable. She for sure captured every moment and we are so thankful for her. I will recommend her for any type of photo you need. Wedding, birthday parties, engagement photos, baby photos, and just your good family photos. I appreciate you everyday thank you for capturing our special day. We love you!!

2017 ~ I can't say anything negative about Mac Dore Photography aside from the fact that it is hard to choose what pics to keep SO I end up getting them all! She takes the time to get everything as perfect as can be, loves my kids as if they're her own and she always makes me happy! I can't wait to have my fall family photos done with her this year to show everyone! I recommend ANYONE and EVERYONE to Mackenzie!
2014 ~ MacKenzie an absolute delight to work with! We were very familiar with her work, as she had done my sister's engagement and wedding, a portrait session for one of my closest friends, and my husband and I also had engagement shots with her. Her work is amazing! We still get compliments on our engagement pictures! After seeing how those pics came out, I was really looking forward to seeing what she could do for our special day and I was definitely not disappointed! We just got our pictures, and they came out WONDERFUL and AMAZING! I knew from the 3 sneak peak pics we had in the days following our wedding that they would be, but seeing the hundreds and hundreds of pics we got back, I was so excited! Looking through them with my husband was like reliving moments of our wedding day. They really captured all of the emotions of the day on film. I couldn't be happier with the results! The difficult part will be narrowing down and selecting a limited amount of pictures for our album and to display around our house. I would DEFINITELY recommend MacKenzie to anyone looking for a photographer for their wedding. It is well worth the investment!!

We were looking for a photographer for my son's Sr. Portraits. Mac Dore Photography came highly recommended. Our son is very shy and reserved and Mackenzie was so warm, kind and fun that she had him relaxed and posing comfortably in no time. We knew we wanted outside, but didn't know where and Mackenzie recommended a list of about 5 different local places and also said she would go somewhere else if we wanted. She recommended we bring a few outfit changes and props. We had a 30 minute session, four shirt changes, a dog and a guitar. She made it happen - and in a very casual, fun way. We never felt hurried and she was willing to try any of our suggestions as well as some really cool ones of her own. If you are looking for that one-of-a-kind photo moment, Mac Dore Photography will definitely deliver!
Gosaynie Family, Baby Adam, October 2016
Mackenzie was great to work with. We took photos of our 2-month-old son, his grandma, and the parents. She was flexible with her time and gave professional recommendations on the type of photo session we should book. The photos turned out terrific and everyone is happy. We purchased all the photos in digital format so relatives living far away could select and professionally print the ones they liked. Below is a sample of her work.
I highly recommend Mackenzie for your professional photo needs. You will not be disappointed.
Kelly, Grandson Braxxton
Mackenzie is amazing! The beautiful images she captures is incredible ! She has given me the most heart loving pictures of my grandson and really knows how to work with children!
Tucker Family, Baby Chase
We were very happy with our photographs. She was very professional and did a great job getting our 9 month old to smile... which can be a taunting task :-)
Kaitlyn, June 2017
She phenomenal work! I would recommend Mackenzie to anyone!! Her prices are great and she makes you feel so comfortable on top of her work being amazing! I am looking forward to her doing more pictures for me and my family in the future!
Rob & Zack, July 2017
2017 ~ Mackenzie is amazing. Her ability to always find the right pose is awesome. Her way to always make you smile big is pure talent. She listens to what you want and does whatever it takes to make you happy. Best photographer I have ever dealt with. Love her.
2013 ~ My family and I were lucky enough to have Mackenzie in the Philadelphia area for a wedding and she graciously gave up her time to take pictures of us. Her professionalism was great and her ability to work with my 4 year old was incredible. She got my son to pose in positions that I would have never thought possible at his young age. I would gladly use her services again and again for all holiday and special event pictures. I wish she was closer to us.
Jennifer & Mike, Wedding June 2017
MacKenzie did an amazing job with my wedding photos. She was very professional, had great ideas for poses, saw the perfect shots that happened spur of the moment, and had a great personalized presentation of my photos! The quality of the pictures is second to none! I would hire Mac Dore Photography for any of my future photo needs!
Sam & Rich, Married August 2014
One of Mac Dore Photography shots was so precious that prompted my grandmother cry when it was framed and given to this past Christmas. Mac Dore is very approachable in terms of what you would like or would not prefer, affordable, flexible and excited about what Mac Dore Photography does. We didn't feel pressured, or that we were bothering her with our multiple requests.

2017 ~ I couldn't be more impressed with the talent, creativity, expertise, professionalism, patience, and care that Mackenzie provides to each of her clients. My first experience with Mackenzie was family and newborn photos in 2011, and she has taken my family photos each year since. Not only are her pictures always beautiful and touching, but her ease working with my children is unparalleled. The images are always ready in a timely manner, and she never ceases to amaze me in what she can capture, especially with very energetic boys. Each year Mackenzie has new ideas, and truly makes the entire family feel special, while completing the session in an efficient time frame.
2013 ~ MacKenzie is a phenomenal photographer for so many reasons! MacKenzie has been photographing my family for several years now. She always blows me away with the results of our sessions. First, she has an amazing ease around children. My 4 kids felt comfortable with her from the very start. No matter how difficult my toddler decides to be, she captures breath-taking images. Next, she has an intelligent, skillful eye for her art. She really knows her lighting, settings, angles, poses, etc. She is able to capture both well laid out photos and spur of the moment shots. MacKenzie has created a masterpiece of my family, and I feel so lucky to have her document the growth of my children. She is reasonably priced, works around your time frame and schedule, very efficient in providing the photos, and what she gives to you is priceless.

Macdore was very professional and patient with taking pictures of my granddaughter. She had so much stuff to choose from. My favorite was the Hershey kiss hat with my daughters kisses all over. Thank you and we will be using you again.

Shannon & Ray, Married February 2013
MacKenzie did our wedding almost a year ago and our pictures could not have turned out any more perfect!! She was really great about taking requests on some shots i specifically wanted and they came out beyond beautiful! We had a very young flower girl, about 2, and she was a handful when it came to pictures but MacKenzie was SOO good with her and the pictures of the flower girl and I turned out to be some of my favorites!! I would 100% recommend MacKenzie for any occasion you need a photographer!
Rebecca & Stuart, Married April 2014
WOW WOW WOW! I am beyond happy with the pictures Mackenzie shot for my wedding! No body could have done a better job than her. The pictures capture the day perfectly. She was VERY easy to work with and worked around all of our needs. I really can't say enough good things about her!
