We are Robert & Elisabeth McKay, a husband and wife photography team. We love each other and we love photographing weddings!

Every couple is unique, thus we approach each wedding day as a new experience, capturing the event with artistic candids, but also creating some beautiful portraits of the bride and groom and their families.

We believe our style is best described as editorial photography, a mix of photojournalism and classic portraiture, modern and romantic, fresh and elegant...

Let us tell you a little bit about how we work...
A couple of hours before your ceremony begins, we split up to photograph both of you “getting ready.” These photos usually take place during the only time of the wedding day when the two of you are not together and they are a lot of fun for both of you to see later on. Once the ceremony begins, all of the main events of the day will be photographed from each of our two unique perspectives...
Your wedding coverage will go on right until the end of the night. We’ll take a bit of time during the day to get some beautiful portraits of you and your family and spend the rest of the day and night, as unobtrusively as possibile, capturing meaningful, candid photographs of all the important moments and people that fill the day. When all is said and done, you’ll have almost a 1000 vivid, 4 x 6 prints to take home and share...

Your wedding photography is an heirloom; and so, the choice of a wedding photographer is therefore one of the most important decisions you’ll make during this planning stage. Find a photographer that makes you feel comfortable and you will look great in the pictures! We take your photography very serisouly, but that being said, we want everybody to have fun, first and foremost! You will find our style to be loose and relaxed, never stiff and controlling. The result of course will be pictures where everybody looks like they were having fun... because they were!

Once again, we are flattered that you are considering entrusting this important task to us. We are looking forward to working with you to preserve this wonderful time in your life...in photographs...

We are thrilled to have Bob and Liz McKay as our photographers. When we took our engagement pictures, they made us feel extremely comfortable and we are excited to have them capture our big day. When you book with large photography companies, it's possible that they might send a photographer that you never met. This sometimes makes it awkward and uncomfortable when trying to pose for pictures. This is not the case with McKay imaging. It's just two photographers and you are able to get to know them before your big day! They take great pictures!

They were the first vendor we booked after we set our date and got the venues in order. Bob and Liz were an absolute joy to spend the day with and even managed to get my husband into the whole thing. We haven’t seen our photos yet but we have loved their work for a while and cannot wait to see how they look. Will update once received but we wanted to make sure to leave a note right away to say how wonderful they were for our big day.

I absolutely love McKay Imaging! From the day we met Bob and Liz we knew they were the photographers for us. My husband and I had been interested in a photography couple because of the multiple perspectives they bring to the day and this couple was recommended to us by a colleague. Leading up to our big day they really got to know us as a couple and what kind of pictures we were looking for. They got to know who was who in our family and our wedding party so on the big day everyone felt like they knew the McKays! Just the couple of pictures we have seen so far have gotten us so excited to see all of the beautiful art that was created on our wedding day! Wonderful work!

Let it be known that Bob and Liz are incredible wedding photographers! They shot my sisters wedding in September 2011 and once we saw the pictures from that wedding, we knew we would book them for our own. Both Bob and Liz are extremely personable and they really get a feel for you as a couple before your wedding day. They took all of the pictures we had discussed at our pre-wedding meeting and A LOT more, which was amazing because all of the pictures they captured are incredible. A few wedding guests who saw the pictures after the wedding commented to us that they loved our photographers, not only because the pictures they took were great, but also because they never got in the way of the wedding itself. At some weddings, the photographers are in your face, demanding specific pictures because they want that "perfect" moment which somewhat takes away from the "magic" of the wedding day. Bob and Liz somehow capture all of those "magic" moments, but they're swift about it, to the point where you don't even notice they were taking pictures. We can't say enough incredible things about Bob and Liz and we highly recommend them for any event.

For a photo shy bride they did a great job of making the posed portraits fun and easy and they spend a great deal of time behind the scenes getting great shots. They even tried their best to help with the groom forgot the rings in the hotel! I can't wait to get our album! We had our engagement photos done with them as well and they were amazing.

My new husband and I feel so blessed to have had McKay Imaging as our photographers on our September 30th wedding day! It was very important to us that all of our vendors were personable, talented, creative, responsive and down-to-earth - Liz and Bob McKay are that and more! They truely LOVE what they do!

Bob and Liz were recommended to us by friends of us ours that got married a few years back. From the moment we met them and saw their work we knew we had found our photographers!

They were with us for the entire day with smiles on their faces...able to take every shot you could think of without being intrusive at all, but instead blending in with the flow of the day. We were so excited to see the pictures and were in awe of how beautiful and varietal they were. McKay Imaging knows how to capture your personalities and precious moments perfectly! You will absolutely love working with them!
