Having a big camera pointed at you can be super intimidating and uncomfortable. I get it, having your picture taken brings out fears, nerves, and insecurities. BUT— let me share some realllly good news – it’s my job to make you feel like you are all that and a bag of chips, like you and your person are the hot models on the front of a Nicholas Sparks book, and feel like you’re just hanging out or going on an adventure.
My secret sauce is giving you some action prompts that make you forget I’m even there. I believe that your photos should truly represent who you and your partner are, and that’s not going to show by me giving you stiff generic poses. Movement is key. From running across a field to brushing your fingers through their hair, it makes for the most magical and REAL photos.
You see a stranger’s puppy on the side of the road & it takes everything in you not to run up & cuddle it.
You think ice cream & coffee is always an acceptable breakfast option. Always.
You LIVE for days filled with all your people soaking in the laughter and joy.
You have a bucket list of places all around the world that you are just dying to explore.
You’re already screaming YASSSS WHERE DO I BOOK YOU?! I WANNA DO THIS THING!
book your session
On weddings days, I show up to capture the day with a lens of storytelling. I work really hard before your day ever arrives to ensure I have all my ducks in a row for you, and we are smooth sailing the whole day! This starting collection is a 6 hour day. Most wedding days are 8 hours depending on what moments are most important to you.
book your session
Whether you're dating, engaged, or looking for updated portraits of you and your husband, this is for you! This starting investment is for a 30 minute session where we can fit in one location.

If you’d rather go simpler and wilder, then let’s get our feet dirty and screw tradition. Elopement days include so much intention and intimate moments! This day can look like anything you want; sunrise on a mountaintop or evening at City Hall. Included in every collection is timeline/planning assistants. This starting investment includes 2 hour coverage.
I'm located in Jonesboro, Arkansas. I travel to a few locations nearby at no cost. If your location is more than 2 hours away, I require a travel fee of $1/mile.
I deliver all the best images in your final galley. For weddings, a 6 hour day is typically 500+ images. Couples sessions include 35+, and elopements vary on timeline and locations, but typically 100+.
I do not. I take intentional time to edit each and every image. Editing is a large portion of your investment, therefore you will not receive a job partly complete.
For weddings and elopements, I require a 40% retainer to reserve your day. The remaining will be split in 2 equal payments due 1 and 2 months before your wedding date.
For couples sessions, I require a 50% retainer to book, and the remaining total is due 1 day before your session.
Screaming excited at this question!!
First step, head over to the booking page and fill out a contact form! I'll send over my full investment guide detailing all my offers and what working together would look like. From there we'll hop on a call and talk through which package is best! To officially get on my calendar, a completed contract and paid retainer is due!
For sessions, I guarantee your gallery delivery by the 2 week mark!
For weddings + elopements, I guarantee your gallery delivery by the 3 week mark!
McLain made every moment from engagement photos to the actual wedding day an absolutely DREAM! She is so easy to work with and the sweetest person. I am completely obsessed with all of our pictures! :)
Hiring McLain was the best decision my husband and I made for our wedding. She captured each detail so perfectly. I am very picky when it comes to capturing weddings, but she exceeded my expectations. McLain is one of the most genuine photographers I have ever worked with. You will never be disappointed with her work! Our wedding was perfect, and we are so glad we hired her a year ago!!
McLain made our day truly the best day ever. She was involved in every single step of our wedding planning process! She even suggested our wedding venue! We are so thankful for McLain, her expertise, her professionalism, and the absolute joy she brought to our day! If you are in the beginning stages of planning your wedding day, look no further because McLain is the photographer for you! <3
