WHAT'S IN THIS EPISODE?

Of all the joyfully infectious, lip-sync loving, pink-haired wedding photographers, McKenzie Deakins is my favorite. And I have a sneaky suspicion she’s about to be yours, too! Which is why I’m SO incredibly excited to share her beautiful energy and heart and her story (including the untold parts) with you. She’s been making magic photographing weddings for over a decade now. So, she knows a thing or two and has been around the metaphorical block enough times to have seen a lot change. The real reason you’re going to love her, though? She has this beautiful way of making you feel totally seen and wildly excited all at the same time. She adds a dash of sugar and excitement to everything she does and yet, she keeps it incredibly real. So, grab a coke (McKenzie’s favorite) and get cozy.

Want a sneak peek? We talk about:

  • How she first got started photographing weddings 13 years ago

  • How her Instagram famous lip sync videos first started!!

  • The impact of watching those you love struggle with mental illness

  • Running a business through difficult life experiences and really tough days
