We are a husband and wife team… Mack & Chelsea. We’ve been growing our business since 2008, and continue to feel unbelievably blessed to be able to pursue our dream career in a world where not everyone gets that chance.

While neither of us has formal training in photography, our former careers as a graphic designer and a journalist gave us unique building blocks to create our own artistic style. We have a blast with our clients, but also take our business incredibly seriously, and are dedicated to top-of-the-line customer service and continued education.

McGowan Images is built entirely on word-of-mouth, and the vast majority of our clients hire us because a friend told them to check us out. We do not take those recommendations lightly, and we are overwhelmed with gratitude for the families who’ve invested in and encouraged us over the last several years.

We have two children… an adventurous boy named Jack, and a fiesty little diva named Dorothy. You’ll see them appear on the blog from time to time.

Mack loves building projects, steampunk design, and cooking good food.

Chelsea loves travel, nerdy conversations about pop culture, and eating whatever Mack is cooking.

Together, we strive to be entirely authentic both in our “real lives” and here in our little online home. We cherish the relationships photography has brought into our lives, and we consider ourselves better people for having been able to meet so many amazing couples.

We’re also completely open books… so if you’ve got a question about our business or our lives, feel free to shoot us an email. We’d love to hear from you! Read less

This was my single best investment in the entire wedding. Chelsea was a sounding board for me on so many things related to the wedding and even a few non-wedding related. Chelsea and Mack are truly wonderful people who love their clients and do everything in their power to make your day the best it can be. They helped with timelines, helped my maid of honor get me into my dress and many more things I could name. They took time to get to know about Matt and I and therefore were able to capture the day just the way we envisioned it. They just all around went above and beyond, I used them for engagements, boudoir and wedding so far every picture I have seen is stunning.

Chelsea and Mack are by far the BEST photography team I've ever come in contact with! I met them at my best friend's wedding in April (The pictures were so awesome they were featured in 360 weddings) and they did a fabulous job as the photos were gorgeous! They work together to get every possible, perfect angle...its pretty cool seeing them work a party with their cameras! For our wedding we were actually gifted an hour with Chelsea before and during our little courthouse elopement (I'm so lucky to have such an awesome best friend)! The photos were freaking fantastic! You should see some of things Chelsea can do with lighting... PURE GENIOUS! They are also VERY reasonably priced, so all you girls on a serious budget should seriously consider them! These two are AMAZING... Book them ASAP!

Ok... I seriously don't know what I would have done if I didn't hire Chelsea and Mack for my wedding. The photographer was the #1 important thing I wanted to have for my wedding because lets be real.. Some peoples wedding I've seen have been horrid... My pictures are FLAWLESS and just the most beautiful images I have ever seen in my life. Being in the wedding industry myself, I had several options and many photographer friends that even offered their services for free... I knew I had to have the McGowans though. They did my bridals, our engagements and our wedding. Within posting my images on Facebook, I received 99+ notifications and they were all comments and "likes" on my pictures. Then I started getting text messages of friends telling me they had to pull over to see my pictures while they were driving... LOL. WHAT!? If that doesn't scream THE BEST I seriously don't know what does. Super professional, nice, fun and all around great people. If you want the best, hire the McGowans, The best always get hire first so act now while they are not booked because they book up fast. Thank you again Chelsea and Mack for the most memorable images!! I love ya'll!!

If you are looking for a wedding/engagement photographer that gives you above and beyond your expectations - Chelsea and Mack are your people! What you get from them is worth double what they charge. They are fun, personable, professional and truly care about you on your wedding day. They have your best interest at heart and will do whatever it takes for you to have a perfect wedding day - they have been known to wrangle other vendors who need guidance or direction! They are both great about making you feel comfortable and always find a way to make you laugh. Having a married couple really brought a great dynamic to our sessions since Mack could focus on my husband and Chelsea could be with us girls. Plus....despite their long successful marriage, they are still in the honeymoon phase - their love and connection is contagious. Chelsea and Mack have traveled all over the states to capture important life events for clients - they adapt to any environment - and bring out the best in you and your location. There is no location they can't make look AMAZING! We constantly get calls and messages about Chelsea and Macks work and how unique and gorgeous their work is. People assume we paid double what we did for their work. Any life event that comes our way Mack and Chelsea will be our first phone call to capture it! They have become part of the family and we consider them friends. I promise you wont be disappointed!

Advice: Book them.

Now.

Rearrange your budget however you need to, because Chelsea & Mack are AMAZING. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. Your photos are the way you'll remember your wedding day forever. Make them count.

During the shoot/event: They're fun and easy going, and are great at making you feel comfortable and natural so that your pictures capture YOU and not a bunch of awkward or forced smiles and poses. During our wedding, they were in the background enough that they captured so many great candid moments, but were confident enough in our shared vision of what we wanted for the night to be able to step in and say, "We need you to do this for just a moment" or "Can we get a shot of ...." without interrupting the flow of the night.

After the wedding, they were able to quickly get our pics edited and posted to an awesome site for easy ordering. They also provided us with the actual images (.zip file) so that we could order them from anywhere we chose.

Bottom line: If you're looking for amazing photographers that will capture the best version of you and your family, book this awesome team.

Okay so here is the deal if you are booking any other photographers for you big day, you are making a terrible mistake. First the quality of the memories that you will receive from having such an amazing team like the Mcgowans is irreplaceable. They are flexible, insightful, professional, and so much more. I am not overselling them at all if you want to look back in 50 years to remember the day you promised your life to each other then book the Mcgowans now, because they don't take pictures the capture memories. They are amazing people with an amazing gift and I could not have been happier with the service they delivered!!!!!!!

These guys are AMAZING!! Hands down they our magicians behind the lens and within the editing process!! They bring out not only the soft sensual side of people and lighting, but also the bold sassyness with extreme colors and edge!! I have had pictures taken with a dozen other photographers and I can tell you that I will never use anyone else ever again!! Even if the McGowan's were to be $1,000 more expensive than someone else, which I highly doubt because they are very reasonable, they are 110% worth it !!! I personally guarantee that you will not regret hiring them!
They are not only great photographers, but they also really care about making sure that your wedding day is perfectly scheduled and organized.
Oh and to top it all off they are both gut splitting funny and you can't help but have fun whenever you are around them!!
This was the best decision that I made during my wedding process, besides saying "I do"!!

I booked Chelsea and Mack almost before we were officially engaged and it was by far the best decision we made (besides getting married). From our engagement pictures to the final going away picture on our wedding day they were beyond attentive. They are both extremely professional and a blast to work with. Our wedding day didn't run exactly smooth. From Mack having to cut a string out of my dress zipper (yes I was freaking out) to a videographer that was constantly in their way, Chelsea and Mack were constantly looking out for me. Looking back now I would have asked their advise one more things. Especially who they would have recommended to video our wedding.
I still find myself staring at their blog. Do yourself a favor and call them. You won't regret it!

Oh boy, where do I even begin? When my husband proposed, there was absolutely no hesitation in our choice of photographers. We knew 100% it would be Chelsea & Mack. It was especially important to us that we connect and absolutely love our photographers, as they were traveling to our wedding in New Orleans with us, as well as having an engagement, bridal & after session. So, they were going to be stuck with us for a while! :] It's been a year and a half since we booked them, and all of our "big events" are over, and I can honestly say that this was the best decision we made. They made us feel SO comfortable in front of the camera, which is something that I am usually not..at all! But somehow they captured our love, and our connection perfectly, without me looking like I've never seen a camera before. They were always in constant communication, which was something that was SUPER important to me. Most important to me though, is how they just felt like our best friends from the get go. They're so relatable, so sweet, so understanding & absolutely love what they do. And it shows in every image & every session. My husband & I will never have anyone else photograph us or our families- we're hooked! They were so supportive every step of the way, and were complete rockstars on our wedding day, even when I had a bit of a panic attack. I'm sorry, but if you don't hire a photographer that will get you a chair and a plate of food and tell you to just breathe and talk you through some stress- you're doing it wrong. We are so lucky to have them as our photographers & friends for life. We love you guys!
