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

Photography: Beautiful, timeless and well laid out. I didn't want oversaturated digital images for my wedding, I wanted to look back on it and see us in a way that was natural and uncontrived. They deliver.
Medium: Mix of film and digital
Responsiveness: Kelsy and Butch are punctual and very responsive, they managed our expectations in terms of delivery time and are fantastic to work with.
Personality: Positive, warm and upbeat and sensitive to family dynamics - first class
Professional: Kelsy and Butch were with us for the whole weekend, they showed up on time, were communicative when they needed to be and in the background capturing everything. We received TONS of compliments with everyone telling us that that they loved our photographers and now after seeing their work, love their photography.

Photography was my #1 wedding priority and it took a little while to find what I was looking for. After the recommendation of a friend and co-worker, I visited the McCartney's website and was instantly blown away by their beautiful work. Every wedding and engagement session on their blog was equally stunning and the quality and artistry was nothing like I've ever seen. After a very excited Skype date, my fiance and I could not be more ready to book with them - which ended up being the best decision we made for our entire wedding.

From helping us decide which collection was right for us, to coordinating our wedding timeline and of course, our wedding day, Butch and Kelsy could not have been more responsive, helpful, and professional. They were more than photographers, they truly helped shape our day in more ways than one and if that's not enough, they are a complete joy to be around. They are fun, worked great with our family, bridal party, and other vendors and are so happy and passionate that you can't help but feel wonderful when you're with them.

We were blown away by the quality of our engagement blog and images, but our wedding photos were truly greater than we could have expected. Their ability to capture the many emotions, the tiniest detail, and a special moment is pure artistry. Our prints are beautiful and something we will treasure for years. We could not be more pleased with our photos and overall experience and also could not recommend Butch and Kelsy more. THANK YOU for capturing our wedding day so beautifully and for helping to preserve these precious memories.

Love, Nick and Amanda Trentadue

Hiring Butch & Kelsey McCartney was the best decision of our entire wedding, and we have amazing pictures to prove it. Words can't express how highly we recommend them. We hired them for both our engagement session and our wedding day.

Their talent is undeniable. They always seemed to be in the right place at the right time to capture every amazing candid moment. The way they capture light in outdoor photos makes every photo look magazine worthy.

In addition, they're both really sweet people. Their positive energy & enthusiasm is contagious. They're the kind of people you'd want to hang out with outside of your wedding day too. They're also incredibly thoughtful and don't overlook any details. Everything we got from them felt like a surprise "gift." I instagramed the un-boxing of the wedding photos they sent us because it just looked & felt that special!

And to boot - they got our wedding pictures on Style Me Pretty. I couldn't believe it - definitely the cherry on top of the wedding cake!

There aren't enough words to describe the praise The McCartney's deserve. Not only is their work of the highest quality, Butch and Kelsy are two of the sweetest, most sincere people who make you feel so relaxed and comfortable. Your wedding photography is the one physical piece of your wedding memories that you will go back to time and time again. The way the McCartney's capture your day will show all the true emotions and details to help you relive that day. Their professionalism, responsiveness, quality, and infectious energy simply cannot be beat. We were 100% satisfied with their service from the day we first met and booked them, through our engagement session, wedding day, and even beyond. You definately don't feel forgotten by them after the wedding is over. They make you feel as if your wedding day is as important to them as it is to you. You will not feel like "just another client /booking " with these two. And the way their photography skills compliment each other leaves no angle or emotion left uncaptured.

We could not be happier that we chose Kelsy and Butch to photograph our wedding. Not only are they super talented in their work - they are also so fun to be around! They made us, our family and bridal party very comfortable in front of the camera and as a result, we have some amazing images that will last a lifetime.

We are also very impressed with the excellent customer service Kelsy and Butch delivered. They were quick to respond to email and our photos were delivered in the cutest packages. Kelsy and Butch were somehow able to make it seem like we were the only couple they were working with.
