“Kelsy & Butch, We are unbelievably impressed with these images! It is so amazing how these photos take us right back to all those incredible feelings and moments we experienced on that day!  The emotion you’ve captured is incredible. So much love, happiness and joy! And my DAD!!! You know he cried just one more time when he saw that photo of our father/daughter dance!! We truly felt like you were an extension of our family that day, and we hope you’ll continue to be a part of ours for years to come!” ~Becky & Joe, Minneapolis Country Club Wedding on October 12, 2013


“Hiring Butch & Kelsy 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!“ ~Andrea & Eric, Osthoff Resort Wedding on August 24, 2013

“There aren’t enough words to describe the praise The McCartneys 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 definitely 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 or booking ” with these two. And the way their photography skills compliment each other leaves no angle or emotion left uncaptured.” ~Nikki & Joe, Wausau Country Club Wedding on September 22, 2012

“As two busy young professionals, my husband & I hoped that we would evade the stress of wedding planning. We can honestly say that Kelsy and Butch provided us with the ease of mind we were searching for! They made the whole process incredibly easy through constant communication and answering any questions that we had. Combined with their genuine efforts to get to know us and their astounding attention to detail, we were reassured that we had made the absolute best choice in asking them to document our special day. We also felt that we were in good hands with a couple who clearly have a deeply caring and loving relationship themselves!

Looking at the final products that Kelsy and Butch were able to capture on our day, has enabled us to relive all the wonderful and special emotions. Although the day of wedding was a whirlwind of events, our photos definitely capture the best memories and moments which we will cherish for a lifetime.

We highly recommend The McCartneys to anyone seeking professional, enthusiastic, and passionate photographers! We cannot thank them for their work!” ~Ellen & Adam, Madison Wedding on August 4, 2012

“If you’re looking for wedding photographers that totally get you and your personality, are just as excited as you are about your big day, easy to work with, totally fun, and above all…SUPER talented? Then look no further than Butch & Kelsy McCartney! They are simply amazing and as an obsessive lover of pictures I knew that I wanted to make sure our wedding photos were ones to remember and would last a lifetime. Let’s just say they were so much more than I could have imagined. Moments were captured that I never knew possible and our love story was told beautifully through pictures that could be in any bridal magazine. Their love for their craft is immediately evident in all of their work and is contagious during your wedding day. Needless to say the McCartneys will forever be in our lives, not only as photographers, but as friends. You won’t regret this wedding decision! :)”  ~Kim & Stew, Door County Wedding on June 2, 2012

“Kelsy and Butch are simply awesome! From the first time we met them during our engagement photo session to our ceremony and reception, they made us feel so comfortable around them and in front of the cameras. Our pictures turned out better than we ever hoped, and they captured all the moments that we will never forget. Kelsy and Butch took the time to make us feel really special, and we felt like they really cared about our wedding day and what was important to us. Several members of our wedding party agreed that Kelsy and Butch were the easiest photographers they had ever worked with. They also do a great job in the presentation and packaging of photo prints ordered. I can’t say enough good things about Kelsy and Butch and hope to be able to work with them again sometime in the future for family portraits!” ~Chelsea & Kyle, Horseshoe Bay Golf Club  Door County Wedding on July 30, 2011

“After my first brief conversation with Kelsy McCartney, I was convinced my hubby and I needed them for our wedding photography. Kelsy and Butch were incredibly helpful, cheery, and accommodating from that first phone call. Hiring the McCartneys meant exceeding our initial budget for photography, but we are so thankful that we made photography a priority! We cared more about having incredible photographers capture the essence of our wedding than we did about anything else that we knew wouldn’t last past that day. As a result, we have hundreds of beautiful images that make us feel giddy inside every time we look at them because they take us right back to the amazing feelings present on that magical day!

It’s impossible not to feel relaxed and joyful around (Kelsy and Butch) — their love and happiness for each other and their job is absolutely contagious.” ~Diana & Kyle Kerr, Golden Mast Inn Milwaukee Wedding on September 10, 2011

“Kelsy and Butch are a dream photography duo! It is clear that they truly love what they do and love working with each other. They always kept us at ease and the awkward posed moments never seemed to happen. Perhaps most importantly, the photos turned out beautiful and were a perfect representation of our special day.” ~Kelsey & Dave, Enchanted Barn Wedding on August 18, 2011
