Hi, I'm MK.

Let's be friends!

Ripped jeans, flowey tops, and green houses give me all the happies, and if I can't be exploring some exciting new place, I'm in my room editing my last shoot, curled up next to my pup Moose and kitten Lou. They're really the backbone of MKC Photography and carry all the weight around here.

Beyond the basic "I love to travel, eat pizza, and sit in cute coffee shops,"

I started shooting years ago..


I am an award-winning photographer from Alabama. From working in news rooms, to covering events and sports at The University of Alabama, to leading teams of journalists through foreign countries collecting travel magazine content, I've been in nearly every scenario and always come out with a story worth telling (and the photos to prove it.)


I picked up a camera over a decade ago, and every move forward in my life has happened with a camera in my hand. I've traveled the world, seen friends celebrate huge milestones, told my family's story, and worked with hundreds of outstanding individuals turning to the next chapter in their own story.


As cheesy as that sounds, it's what I love to do. I couldn't see myself doing anything else and being truly happy.

What Clients Have to Say

Wedding Client


"I can not say enough great things about MKC Photography! She is professional, present, and knows exactly what she’s doing. She captured every special moment of our wedding day! I loved the range of photos I received from the portraits to the ceremony and reception, and all the details in between! Now only did she focus on photos of my husband and I but our guests as well! I am so happy we chose MKC Photography!" - Hannah Montgomery

Graduate Client


"MK is great and you really get every penny you pay for! Not only was I so happy with my gallery, my family was astounded with it. Looking back on the experience, I had so much fun! MK incorporated my personality into my gallery and even made me get out of my comfort zone to capture amazing shots. She also made it a priority to get the images and pictures that I wanted. In the beginning I was really timid and nervous and she made me feel so comfortable so quickly into the session. She is definitely one of the best Tuscaloosa has to offer!" - Connor Jefferson

Graduate Client


"Mary Kathryn is the absolute BEST!! She made my graduation photo session the best experience I could ask for. My pictures turned out so amazing and she made the session so fun. My friends and I all had MK for our grad photos and it was the best decision! She is such a talented photographer and such sweet girl!" - Holly Welch
