Imagery that will                          help you remember this amazing time in your life.

forever

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.

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!

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'm so in!

My husband and I had been following along with Megan's journey of starting this business and were amazed with her photos! I decided we needed to get some pictures to commemorate 10 years of being together. Working with Megan was an absolute joy! She was responsive, quick, and super helpful! 

During the shoot, it felt as if we were just playing around - it was so easy! We were laughing the whole time! That same night we got sneak peek pictures, and I was in tears with how perfectly they captured our relationship! Within a week, we had the whole gallery and fell in love with every single picture! We can't wait to book another session!

Megan photographed an engagement and day-after adventure session for me and my fiancée/wife and it was a thoroughly wonderful experience. Despite our lack of experience as any sort of ‘models,’ Megan was kind and with some comedic commentary made our session humorous, memorable, and with fantastic results.

She was happy to accommodate our requests for specific shots and helped us find a great location showcasing our local areas superb natural beauty. Our experience with Megan made our engagement photos special and they visually capture the essence of our love.

Wow! That’s all I can say about our experience with Meg. My husband and I met Meg down in Carmel for a short couple’s shoot. We met at this cute coffee shop, and spent some time getting to know each other before the shoot started! Meg was super friendly and immediately made us feel at ease. She had already done her homework and scoped out a few amazing spots for us to take photos. We started the shoot and Meg had some fun ‘activities’ for us so that my hubby and I could interact without being too awkward and posed. Meg really knew how to lighten the mood and help us feel comfortable with being close and intimate in front of a bunch of strangers. She also had a spot in mind for us to go to, but the place was closing a bit earlier than expected so we weren’t able to go. Meg was super professional about the whole situation and we ended up taking some super gorgeous photos on the beach! 

And that was just the shoot ya’ll! The photos turned out beyond GORGEOUS. Meg has such a great eye for composition and her edits were great. I love the darker more moody vibe vs the currently popular bright and airy - and Meg DELIVERED. Our photos feel so intimate and emotional, and at the same time full of joy! 

Overall 10/10 would recommend Meg to anyone in the Bay Area. She is kind, professional, and a craftswoman at photography. Her style is unique, and from first communication to the handover of the photos we were incredibly impressed with her work. We will cherish our photos for years to come!
