Who is The Autumn Dog Studio?
Hey, it's Makayla. I'm a Duluth, MN and Saint Paul, MN based wedding photojournalist.
I'm going to photograph the magic that is your everyday life.
I'm a Minnesota native who lives in a perpetual state of autumn and hot homemade cider and celebrating people exactly as they are. The people and experience that you will bring into our time together are SO important.
We have a lot to talk about. I'll go first.
(P.S. I'm already obsessed with your dog and can't wait to meet them.)
"Makayla was FABULOUS. My husband and I usually feel awkward in front of the camera, however Makayla made us feel so comfortable. She let the two of us simply hang out and soak in our wedding day together. No awkward poses involved!
Makayla truly captured us - and all of our family and friends. We are absolutely in love with all of our photos. They are stunning, and exactly what we were hoping for."
- Abby, 2020 Bride
