THE WAY TO MY HEART...

my best friends are my family...and yes this is my immediate family ( still missing 4 people in this! ) one giant, beautiful, blended, masterpiece.

adventuring + being outside is my happy place

MY GRANDFATHER, DAN FARRELL. HE WAS A WORLD RENOWNED PHOTOGRAPHER FOR THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS. THE EPIC MOMENTS HE CAPTURED INCLUDE: THE HEARTBREAKING PHOTO OF JFK JR. SALUTING AT HIS FATHER’S COFFIN. THE FIRST TIME THE BEATLES TOURED THE US. MARILYN MONROE POSING ON AN ELEPHANT. THE FIRST ROCKET LAUNCH TO THE MOON! AND THAT’S JUST THE SURFACE OF THE PHOTOS & STORIES THAT LIVE ON TODAY. THOSE STORIES DREW ME TO THE ADVENTURE AND ART OF PHOTOGRAPHY AND ARE WHAT STILL INSPIRE ME IN THE FIELD TODAY.

SO WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO SEEK out PHOTOGRAPHY YOU MAY ASK? 

I'm Mackenzie Grace. A jersey girl at heart, photographer, hype woman, and creative with big dreams of capturing iconic, authentic moments of our lifetime. I am based in Madison NJ with the love of my life and husband - James! Our cat, Sox, kindly lets James and I live in his apartment here. How nice! The little life we’ve built together is what I cherish most in this world. We were a Covid couple that eloped in 2020 and had what we called the "Big Fat Jersey Wedding 2.0 " the following year with all our friends and family...It was the best of both worlds! 

I can't wait to connect, learn your story, and be your guide to accomplish your #photogoals!
