I'm McKenna, Owner of Alder and Pine Photography. I often get asked why I decided to become a photographer and the honest answer is that I am a big-ole romantic! Since the time I picked up my first book, romance novels and love stories have swept me away. Now at 32 years old, married and 3 kids later, weddings and engagements simply feed my romance loving soul! They say opposites attract and that must be true since my loving husband doesn't have a single romantic bone in his body- and you know what? I love him all the more for it. I am head over heels for this job, creative outlet and photography genre!
I strive to capture beautiful images as you live the best moments in life. My goal is to make sure you not only have an amazing experience with me and your loved ones during our session, but also to provide you with quality images that will last a lifetime. I love capturing the emotion and energy as you live your best moments.
Let's do this thing together, OK? Just give me a call or shoot me an email and we'll
start talking deets ASAP!

As soon as we met McKenna, we knew she was the perfect fit. She made us feel at ease in front of the camera with her fun-loving personality. She captured every detail of our wedding perfectly, from the small details to the crazy dance floor. The way McKenna edits photos is nothing short of amazing. She beautifully brings out colors and is a master at dreamy sunset photos (which every bride needs)! The day of (the wedding) I had no stress because she was on top of where we should be timeline wise and made sure everything flowed perfectly. She does so much more than just take amazing photos, she was a key piece that make our wedding day be stress free. We can't give enough praise for Alder and Pine."
McKenna shot my wedding in September of 2018, just shot a beautiful adventure maternity session, and will be shooting my sons newborn photos in just a few short weeks!! If you’re looking for a photographer that lives for stunning candids and has one of the warmest personalities ever, then McKenna is your girl! She’s following my life journeys with a huge smile and camera in hand and I couldn’t be more grateful for her. -Kyrsten Burkenpas
I can't even begin to put into words how much McKenna did for my husband and I. Thanks to her I have wedding photos I can be proud of, that make me feel gorgeous!
She is extremely talented and clearly has a passion for her work. She went above and beyond to coordinate everything and give us the perfect shoot. She took away the awkwardness of posing and had us laughing the entire time! My husband and I had an amazing experience and left feeling like we made a friend. We have already been recommending her to our friends and family and will definitely be back for future photos. - Leah Hanson
