An elopement is a wedding day that feels real and authentic to you. It’s your perfect, ideal day filled with all of your and your partner’s favorite activities. It’s choosing to be true to you and your partner, and letting go of anyone else’s expectations for your wedding experience.

"She was fast to respond and able to answer our questions and concerns. We love looking back on the photos especially the candid ones because she captured the essence of what was going on so well.

"She did so much more than capture our intimate moments! She helped us with the boutonnière, had emergency bobby pins for my veil, and found an amazing spot for us to take portraits at without a fee. Meg went above and beyond and truly contributed to making our wedding a fairytale experience."

"By the end of the shoot, we were soaked, cold, and it was only raining harder. But she made it so much fun, and I was more than happy and wanting to continue through the rain, loving the experience. Meg keeps it relaxed, simple, and the photos that come out at the end of it all are GORGEOUS."
