Behind the Lens | Meet Mackinzie!

As we prep to head into Abby and Caleb's wedding weekend (!!!), I'm feeling incredibly thankful to have my best friend Mackinzie by my side as a second shooter! Upon booking with Abby and Caleb, I reached out to Mackinzie and asked if she'd be willing to come along for the ride. SO blessed to be able to cross such a big "to do" off my bucket list alongside her! Especially since she's been a huge part of my life since I was 15. And now you get to meet her :)

WHY I LOVE MACKINZIE

1. Her heart for adventure | This girl is ALWAYS ready to go somewhere with me! I can't tell you how many times I've driven through the night with her, music blaring, brainstorming about our future weddings and houses

2. Her love to serve | Mackinzie is one of the most helpful people I know, willing to give someone a hand no matter what. 

3. Her creativity | Step into her room and you'll wish you had Mackinzie to design your whole life. The tiny twinkly lights, the incredible pictures from her travels....just ugh. 

4. The friendship that never changes | We've basically been in a long distance friendship since we went off to college in 2014, but no matter what I know I can always call or text her and everything is the same as it was when we spent days on end with each other in Chapel Hill or planning road trips. As I grow up, I've come to realize that the amount of friends you have isn't important, but the quality of the friends you do have is something to pay attention to. This girly is going to be my BFF for forever and a day! Can't wait to see all of our Pinterest boards and daydreams come to life :)
