HUSBAND & WIFE WISCONSIN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS | The McCartneys Fine Art Film Photography » Fine Art Film Wedding & Lifestyle Photographers


It couldn’t have worked out more perfectly. All of the Majeski “kids” were back in Door County visiting their Mom & Dad from the states they now call home, and we also had a trip to the county planned to celebrate a family birthday. We were so thrilled when Marnie reached out to us to plan a family portrait session!! Butch has known their family since grade school and the two of us had the pleasure of photographing Marnie & Wes’ wedding in Boulder years ago, so we were excited to get them in front of our cameras again. This time, on their home turf – their beautiful property near Jacksonport, WI! Surrounded by rolling hills & gardens, amazing landscaping, and even a handful of farm animals, it was the perfect setting to walk around and photograph such a beautiful family. Thank you for having us, guys! :)

Love, Kelsy & Butch

We’re over-the-moon and almost in a state of disbelief about this one. We were recently invited to be a part of Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book! For years we had our eye on their LBB and, about a month ago, an email popped into our inbox that literally made us jump out of our chairs! Head over to the Wisconsin wedding photographer section of the Little Black Book to view our profile and let us know what you think!





We are also proud new members of The Grey Collective: An assortment of Grey Likes Weddings‘ favorite wedding vendors from around the globe! Head this way to see our profile and explore the many talented vendors listed in WI and beyond. :)






Just a few weeks ago, Susan & Eric’s Minnesota engagement session was featured on Style Me Pretty! Obviously we are beaming about this feature as Susan is Kelsy’s aunt, and Kelsy was also one of her Matrons of Honor at their wedding earlier this summer! Come see their farmer’s market engagement!





Four little joyful popsicles walking around a farm together in western Wisconsin :) This just about sums up our time spent with Rachel & Gary last November for their engagement session. Except, their smiles and obvious love radiated enough to keep us all toasty! Style Me Pretty saw it too and featured their sweet session last month! If you missed it take a look here!





Stacey & Max’s backyard wedding was filled to the brim with personal details, gorgeous florals, and even canoes filled with homemade brews from the groomsmen! Rustic Wedding Chic featured their wedding last month and we are SO thrilled to see all of Stacey & Max (& their friends/family’s) hard work in the spotlight! Rustic-Wedding-Chic-Stacey-Max

Heidi and Maxx are approaching their third wedding anniversary, and we were thrilled when they reached out to us to celebrate a mini portrait session! These two are super cute & playful together and while their session was just last Thursday, we couldn’t wait another day to share their images!

Happy Anniversary, you two :)

Love, Kelsy & Butch

Fun, romantic, rustic, and filled with DIY elements! Melissa & Brandon planned a wedding that not only fit their style, but also shared so much of who they are with every guest who brought joy to their wedding day. A sweets table, the most creatively flavored cupcakes we’ve ever heard of (cardamom vanilla with honey buttercream – yum!!), and adorably named signature drinks were there to make sure that their guests were well taken care of and enjoying their celebration. Melissa & Brandon’s passion for music also played a huge roll in personalizing their wedding from beginning to end with friends performing their ceremony music, a live swing band drawing their guests onto the dance floor, a rendition of the classic German Oktoberfest song “Ein Prosit”, and a surprise performance by Brandon & his gentlemen for his beautiful bride!! You might remember the beer they worked into their engagement session last fall, so it was only fitting that they incorporate this element into their wedding day as well :)

After a cozy ceremony inside the Rothschild Pavilion, we were blessed with a gorgeous afternoon and enjoyed photographing Melissa & Brandon surrounded by the ones they love. As a couple they are thoughtful & genuine, and being around them made us feel both completely at ease and ready for FUN! We consider ourselves very lucky to have been chosen to document their wedding day! Melissa & Brandon just returned home from a two-week honeymoon in Italy (jealous!) and we are bursting with excitement for them to relive all of the wedding day moments that we captured on film!

Love, Kelsy & Butch
