Hello there! We’re Kelsy & Butch McCartney, an energetic husband & wife team forming The McCartneys Photography, based in central Wausau Wisconsin.

Our favorite event to photograph is the wedding day of an incredible bride & groom! Getting to know our clients is hands-down one of the most rewarding parts of what we do. The photos & memories that we create together with our couples on their most important days results in an experience they can look back on and fall in love with over & over again!

We love sharing a pot of coffee in the morning (& finding a coffee shop in the afternoon), traveling, taking walks with our puppy & spending as much time with our family as possible.

We’re SO happy that you found us! Stop by our blog to see our latest work and don’t forget to shoot us a message, it would completely make our day!! :)

Love | Kelsy & Butch Read less

Kelsy and Butch are phenomenal photographers, whose exceptional talent and skill are matched by their exceptional personalities.

After seeing examples of their work via friends who had hired them for their wedding, I knew they would be the first vendor to call when my now-husband and I got engaged. The McCartneys are incredibly professional, personable, and most importantly, masterful at what they do. They are prompt in their pre-wedding communication, provide thoughtful suggestions, and are on top of all the details (qualities that are invaluable to any bride – especially an anxious one like me!)

They have an amazing way of making you feel at ease in front of the cameras and letting you enjoy the moments they are capturing, while at the same time skillfully guiding the process and ensuring they are getting amazing photos. We truly enjoyed their company during our engagement session as well as their photography of our rehearsal dinner and wedding, and are incredibly happy with our experience working with the McCartneys. It was really nice to hear from our friends and family who they photographed as well, that our photographers were "so fun to work with."

It is wonderful, beyond words, to reflect on the moments and memories from the happiest day of our lives, and we have Kelsy and Butch to thank for capturing them so beautifully.

Ah, The McCartneys! I was so excited to randomly stumble upon their blog when I was photographer-hunting and even more excited when they were available for our day. I'm a photography nerd so the photo aspect of our wedding was really important to me, and the fact that the McCartneys do a mix of film and digital was so attractive to me (film is not dead and it's so much better than digital, trust me). I emailed them like a thousand times with questions/updates - planning a wedding long-distance will do this to you - and they were endlessly patient, friendly and even pretended to enjoy my myriad messages. We got our photos super quick after the wedding and they were INCREDIBLE. They're super easy to work with and are more like friends that vendors. Hire them. Now!

There were a few vendors during our wedding planning process that were truly a privilege to work with and the McCartneys were one of them. From our very first contact through even now, after our wedding as we are ordering our photos, they were extremely professional, brought excitement and creativity to the project, and were always incredibly responsive. They were pros. Wedding planning is a lot of work and having a vendor like them who simply handles it, does an amazing job, and is pleasant throughout is a gift. We gave them very little direction and they nailed everything. We love our photos and look forward to using them for more in the future!

John and I found the McCartney's through our good friends who have used them to capture all their precious moments (wedding and their two adorable girls)! We spoke to multiple photographers and as soon as we Skyped with Butch and Kelsy we knew we wanted them to capture our special day! We felt like we knew them for years! The amount of detail they but into their business and their clients is unlike anything I have seen or experienced! From the initial welcome box they sent us with personalized touches to the timelines and sending us our wedding photos in such a timely manner. Our pictures are incredible, so many people compliment on the quality and style! Butch and Kelsy were incredible to work with and went above and beyond our expectations in every way! I would highly recommend the McCartney's for anyone's photography needs our pictures are stunning!

The McCartneys are absolutely amazing! We couldn't ask for more perfect pictures that captured our big day. Also, Kelsey and Butch are such fun to work with and people we would love to hang out with on a regular basis! Our wedding party loved them as well and I get so many compliments on our photos. They were the one vendor we splurged on and it was definitely worth the price.

Butch and Kelsy are absolutely incredible in every sense of the word. They are professional yet fun, caring, and flexible. Our original wedding plans changed and Butch and Kelsy were incredibly willing to work with us through the changes and even worked out a way to photograph both of our wedding celebrations. They are constantly communicating with their couples, trying to get a feeling for what that bride and groom have in mind for their day and what they want people to remember and feel when they look back at their day. The photographs that the McCartneys take truly make you FEEL. I don't know how they do it but when you look at their photos you can just tell what the feelings, emotions, and style was on that couple's wedding day. These two are amazing people and are always willing to work with their couples and make their services of value. Every day I felt like Butch and Kelsy were there to help with other aspects of the wedding, offering recommendations and suggestions for vendors or ideas. I couldn't DREAM of having another photographer and I am so happy with our choice!

I truly could go on forever about all of the things I loved about working with the McCartneys! First, I just love THEM in general! They are so kind, fun and warm. They made us feel so comfortable from the very first interaction and went above and beyond what I expected. Your photographers will be with you so much of your wedding day so it is important that you feel comfortable with them and I loved spending my day with Kelsy and Butch! Also, their work is incredible. Our engagement and wedding photos are perfect. I loved that they let us just be us--no awkward posing or forced expressions. Everyone says how beautiful all of our photos are. Our wedding day was cold, windy, rainy and muddy and they took it all in stride and still managed to get all of the photos we wanted.

I honestly think hiring the McCartneys was one the best decisions that we made during our planning. We have hundreds of beautiful photos, great memories and two new friends. I can't recommend them enough!

Easily one of the best decisions we made concerning our big day, the McCartneys are the whole package! To start, Butch and Kelsy are an amazing, two photographer team. The day of the wedding goes by too fast, so having an extra camera on hand made sure that we were able to capture all of our special moments. If that isn't enough, the photo quality is exquisite! The McCartneys are different than most photographers in that they shoot traditional film. It doesn't sound like a big deal, but the quality of the film shots is superior (in our opinion), adding that last missing element from comparable photos we have seen. The cherry on top of our experience is the personal connection that we made with our photographers. From our consults, to a dinner meeting here and there, and all of the way through the wedding, Butch and Kelsy are amazing to work with. Their light-hearted attitude, paired with an amazing work ethic, truly sets this pair apart from other photographers. We could not have envisioned a better experience with better people and would highly recommend the McCartneys to anyone who asks!

If you are looking for wedding photographers who will make your day so special and make you wish you could invite them as guests to your wedding as well... look no further. I had randomly stumbled upon the McCartney's facebook page long before I was even dating my now husband and since then had loved their photography. When I did get engaged and we started looking at photographers obviously my first choice was Butch and Kelsy, but little did I know how perfect they really are. Kelsy and Butch are phenomenal photographers that photograph with love, integrity, and pure passion each and everyday. From minute one you will feel so special and you will feel like you are discussing your wedding with great friends, not your wedding vendor. They will help you with your day of timeline, give advice on what will make great photographs and will capture so much more on your big day. Many of my wedding guests commented on how sweet Kelsy and Butch were, but also how it seemed that they were everywhere capturing every moment possible. I can say with confidence that we have found our photographers for life and look forward to family, anniversary and baby photo sessions for our family in the future!
