Check out Mackenna and Michael Wilson’s Artwork

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mackenna and Michael Wilson.

Mackenna and Michael, we’d love to hear your story and how you got to where you are today both personally and as an artist.
Photography has always been a passion for us. We each began shooting film as kids for fun (and probably to the annoyance of our parents who had to get all those rolls developed) and it’s something that bonded us together as a mutual hobby when we started dating. At the time, Michael was attending Dodge College of Film at Chapman University working on his MFA in Cinematography.

At the same time, I (Mackenna) was in my final year of my BA in journalism, and thought, what if we could actually turn this passion into our real-life career. I began documenting family and lifestyle work in my free time, and then after taking on our first wedding, we were hooked. The excitement and emotion and dedication to love just got us and we haven’t looked back since.

We’d love to hear more about your art. What do you do you do and why and what do you hope others will take away from your work?
Since we got married last year, we’ve only become more passionate about being able to document the stories that we do. It’s truly kind of the greatest gift to be able to meet and celebrate the people we do — whether it’s a wedding or just a family session — and to be able to hand them these frozen moments in time.

Our primary work is in wedding photography, and it’s something we love. But in all the work that we do, we strive for authenticity.

How can artists connect with other artists?
I think social media can be a wonderful tool for making connections. When you get beyond blind scrolling, you’re really only a comment or message away from a person. When you find someone you admire or feel like you relate to, reach out and say hi!
