Last year was magical for me; my husband graduated top of his class in Aerospace Engineering, my best friend had the most gorgeous wedding, we moved to Denver, escaped to the mountains for our dream wedding, honeymooned in Kauai, started a new and exciting career with Floyd’s 99 Barbershop and all the same things in between! Yes, 2014 was an amazing build up to NOW!
2015 is the year of NOW for me! No more waiting to start my dream! I am diving in and nothing is stopping me! I have been reading, researching, networking, brainstorming, saving, evolving, learning, STRESSING, and fantasizing about my business! Now that I have the time and energy to focus on this dream, it’s gaining speed. I suffer for instant gratification, like ‘right this instant’ instant gratification, when I want something I want the whole thing done like yesterday. Fortunately, this whole process is teaching me to slow down. With that, I am dying to share my current progress, but will hold off until its all official!
TEASE, I know, but I will share that Mackenzie Nemeth Photography is not the future for me; I will be going in a whole new, very specific direction. I have found a niche that I am passionate about and see a world of opportunity in.
I will be pursuing this niche 100% and striving to specialize in it!
I believe it was fate that introduced Crested Butte to me. Far before Bud Light and Whatever, USA came about! Jeromey wanted to get married in the mountains, we knew we would be moving to Denver before we tied the knot, and one morning The View happened to be on in the background and I heard “Where is the best place to see fall colors.” See, since I don’t watch The View, it just happened to be background noise, I knew it was fate, that and the answer to this question was in Colorado. Crested Butte, Colorado.
I had it scribbled down somewhere in my early wedding planning stages, but for some reason overlooked it and tossed it to the side. I googled’it more and just had to see it for myself.
It was magic. Not just for our wedding, but all of it! It was the first and last place we looked at for out wedding.
These photos are from our second and last trip to CB before the wedding in early August. Great side note, CB is also Colorado’s Wildflower Capital!
In the nearly eight years I lived in California, I never went to San Francisco. Instead, I waited until I moved to Colorado then went back West to see what SF was all about. It was…interesting to say the least. Very unique. My visit was short, just a long weekend, but I sure enjoyed exploring the many parts of San Francisco!
When the Groom cries, it’s THE best! I live to witness that raw emotion, to photograph it is very special!
These two got married in the cutest, most quaint, little small town white church! But that’s not the best part, Ebin’s Grandparents, Parents and late Aunt were married in the very same church. If that doesn’t make for the beginning of a beautiful love story I don’t know what does.
Laura and I go way back, back when she was Laura Sonnenfelt. That was just about eight years ago when we lived together. She was one of my first roommates when I moved to San Diego. Now she is Mrs. Loch, married to an old friend of mine from high school and living in Denver!
Together with an excited big brother, they are about to welcome baby Cohen!

Ahhhhhhh, spring break! Most instantly think of drinks by the pool. Not me, not us. With only two months left until out big move back to the Midwest and time to check off #1 on our Socal bucket list, we took off to Yosemite!
Yup, nothing like mountains and early morning COLD hikes for spring break!
Our trip was cut a little short as we somehow forgot that unlike San Diego, it’s not summer everywhere all the time. Some major roads were still closed due to snow/weather and we didn’t make it to a few of our top spots.
None the less, it was so worth it and Yosemite will hold a place in my heart!
