I create images that will                         help you remember this amazing time in your life.

forever

most people are satisfied with the status quo of iPhone selfies.

but you're not most people.
that's why you're here.

you're craving beautiful and timeless photos of you and your love that are worthy of the $25 frame from Target you've been holding onto waiting for juuuust the right picture.

here's the truth.

hey there

I'm an elopement + wedding photographer based in Northern California with a borderline-obsession of taking candid and authentic images of couples who are crazy in love with each other. 

!

I invest my time and energy wholeheartedly into my couples so after it's all said and done, I don't feel like just a photographer or vendor you hired. I feel like a friend. A friend who will go out for drinks to celebrate with you, who will reassure you that yes you look FAB, who will make sure there is not a hair tie or stray hair in sight.

Want to get to know me better?

I gotchu.

my name's Megan & I'm your new sidekick who happens to have a camera in hand.

heres the thing

What I LOVE is capturing those side glances at each other, fingers intertwined, face-scrunched-up-belly-laughing moments. That's what I'm best at, and those are the moments you're gonna want to look back on in 5, 10, and 20 years. You're not gonna remember what jokes we told, or the silly things I asked you to do (well, maybe you will!), or even if you were mad at each other two days ago, but what you WILL remember is the amazing season of life you're in loving each other.

My goal is to get to know you as a couple well enough that I can showcase your personalities and love for each other exactly the way they are in person; so that when you see your pictures for the first time, you'll say, "Oh my gosh, that is SO us!" 

I hate being posed that chin-here-look-that-way-arm-down way so I'll never do the same with you. I want to capture you exactly the way you and your babe naturally interact because you definitely don't need my help loving on each other and having a good time together!

Let's make

Love at any stage deserves to be celebrated.

Whether you've been together for 6 months or 10 years, it's a remarkable thing to find someone to walk through life with who so perfectly complements you. You don't need to be engaged or married or together for 50 years to have an excuse for taking beautiful pictures together. To be honest I don't think you need an excuse at all!

can I be real with ya?

I like to define my style as warm, rich, and romantic. Others have commented on it as being intimate, organic, and vibrant. I love creating high contrast images with a lot of depth and a little bit of moodiness in them. Beyond the surface, what lights my fire is being able to showcase the romanticism of your relationship. I want to photograph the tender moments of your love pushing your hair back from your face while looking straight into the depths of your eyes, the whimsical moments of being caught from behind and swung around while belly laughing, the passionate moments of dipping you into a deep kiss with your arms around each other. Those are the moments I love more than anything to catch!

Here's a secret: I'm not a photographer for anyone who just wants quick pictures. It's important to me that I get to know you as a person and as a couple to be able to document your love in the best way possible. I also may not be the right photographer for you, and that is TOTALLY okay! What is most important is that you find someone who you completely click with; finding a connection with the right photographer is the most important thing you can do for your session or wedding. Trust me! :)
