Hi, I'm MK.
I am an award-winning photographer from Alabama, and I want to tell YOUR story. 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.
To start from the beginning, I grew up in a newsroom. And I mean that. From birth on, I was surrounded by some of the best storytellers in the country who still stand as pillars in their current communities. I was 9 years old when I got my first job at the paper, then took a hiatus until I could drive myself to my own assignments.
From then on, I pursued a degree in Journalism, or as I affectionately called it "a degree in talking to strangers." However, I realize now I don't really meet strangers any more. Everyone is a friend of an old friend or a new friend strolling into my life.
Now, I photograph talented and well educated grads, beautiful couples, and incredible small businesses. With the random photo of my pets Moose and Lou thrown into the mix, too.
Beyond all the basic camera stuff, I'm a big fan of Dr. Pepper, craft cocktails, flowers, and being on vacation. Lately, the Virgin Islands and Greece have really been calling my name.
What Clients Have to Say
"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
"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
"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
