Capturing the Magic of Life

Pardon our dust as we make our website even more magical

Meet Makenna

My name is Makenna Brooke Runion and I simply love all things “Love”. I cannot help but want to capture every expression of true love that I see. The adoration that is so evident in the eyes of a man as he looks at his bride of 30 years drives me toward loving my man more deeply. The selfless love of a mother as she cares for her toddler inspires me to love my family better. And beauty that God lavishes on His creation, especially His people, pushes me towards an even deeper love for my sweet Jesus. So you see, photographing your love (whether it be love for your spouse, fiance, family or just life itself) is not just a job for me, but it is an act of worship and a true honor.

I am a worshiper of Jesus Christ, an adoring wife of Jared Runion, an older sister to Jordan Maxwell, a daughter of two high school sweethearts and a student at the greatest University in the world. I am a hopeless romantic, outdoor fanatic and tone-deaf music lover. I have a passion for Gods daughters, a love for their hearts and a vision for their lives. I am a lover of rock climbing, Sydney AU, kayaking, Pinterest and all things Michigan. I can shop with the best of them and can a pitch a tent faster than my dad… usually.

Contact Makenna

“My husband and I LOVED having makenna be a huge part in our wedding day! Makenna is the most sweet, genuine, beautifully hearted and talented woman! She made my awkward self feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I loved having her capture my husband and my love story. Also, when we were running behind schedule, Makenna offered to stay longer at our wedding so that she was able to capture every moment, she’s the real MVP. She is seriously so wonderful! I would without a doubt recommend her.”
Makenna is so professional and SWEET. She is great at direction and leadership when it comes to getting large family and bridal party photos taken quickly. She pays close attention to detail and captures the most beautiful candid moments. Take my review to heart, if you are on the edge about choosing a photographer, go with Makenna Brooke!
Makenna is AMAZING! She did an amazing job at Mikey & Catie’s wedding and has the sweetest personality.
Makenna is amazing! She was everything I wanted in a photographer + more for our wedding day! She was so kind hearted, professional, and polite. She not only managed and coordinated all pictures beyond expectation, but she helped us enjoy our wedding and not get caught up in the chaos of schedule. Not to mention, her photography work is incredible. I was blown away by preview pictures she posted and cannot wait to receive the rest. She is truly gifted with years of experience and is an absolute joy to work with! If you are searching for a photographer, look no further, because Makenna is definitely your gal! Thank you so much for being a part of our special day!
Makenna is the absolute best! She always knows how to get my son to smile with the atmosphere she creates and her warm personality. You can truly tell how much passion she has and how much she cares about the people she films! I would never go to anyone else!
