Enable Captive Portal while using L3 switch?

I currently have a L3 switch that is handling the core routing. All VLANs are configured on the switch and pfsense is acting as the gateway. I have static routes defined in pfsense the route to the switch for any of my VLAN subnets. DHCP is handling be a Windows DC. With this setup, is it still possible to leverage pfsense for captive portal functionality?
You can, by disabling MAC address filtering, but it's not as secure since you don't have a direct L2 connection.
Someone would only need to hop to a new IP address to potentially gain access, whereas with MAC filtering they would need to correctly guess a valid MAC+IP address combination.
