Ren McKenzie is an elopement photographer who wants you to be able to look back on your photos years down the road and see yourselves in them.
I want this time to be about you both, exactly as and who you are together. Your photos are not meant to be something posed or “perfect”. Your photos should be a visual echo of who you are, who you love.
My style is heavily focused on real moments.
I want this to feel and look like you, so I won’t make you do anything that feels cheesy or forced. No poses, no discomfort, no awkward half-smiles. It’s that real, authentic good stuff.
This about your moments. The ones where your lips are parted and your hands are in each other’s hair, where you hold each other close and take in the feeling of being in each other’s arms.
I hold comfort, honesty, and intimacy above all else. Don’t worry about how you look, or where to put your hands. Just close your eyes and breath each other in. Relax into the moment and let yourselves love each other
Because these photos are for you.
I photograph with your future in mind.
For you to remember the feeling of leaning on your husband’s shoulder as he zipped up your dress while you helped each other get ready.
How the warm light spilled across your wife’s face at sunset as she looked up at you, the joyful tears in her eyes.
The feeling of being wrapped in each other’s arms on your worn and comfy couch in your first apartment, the way the floorboards creaked under you as you giggled and raced down the hall to your bedroom.
I want you to remember how it was, how it felt. I want to create an experience where you come out of it loving one another more.
Because this is your love, these are your moments. This is your legacy.
