Editorial Shoot

I don’t generally post my photography on this blog, but I am just so dang excited about this image I can’t resist!

I did a shoot this afternoon with one of my coworkers (model) and my next door neighbor (hair/makeup). I’ve only gone through about 50 of the 588 images I shot and I am already so so happy with them! It feels good to stretch the creative muscles and not alays be shooting for ‘pretty’ or for family photo albums.

Expect to see more from this shoot in the very near future. Expect to see more Casey MacKenzie Photography/Hair & Makeup by Brianna Scheff colabs in the next few weeks, too!


Half Dome by the Numbers

5116 Vertical Feet

18 Miles

16 Hours


10 Friends

4 Fluffernutters

3 Liters of Water

2 Aching legs

1 Englishman

& zero sleep

A group of us set out to conquer Half Dome by night. The goal was to make it to the top for sunrise over the valley. We didn’t make it quite to the top by dawn, but we were high enough to enjoy an epic view of the sun coming up and made the final climb in the warm morning light. It was beautiful!!

Onwards and upwards!!
