This deserves to be your favorite beginning ever. Why not make it the most meaningful day possible?

In this day and age, we are bombarded with information from all sides — and planning your wedding is no exception. You're receiving subliminal messaging about what a wedding "looks like" from romcoms, Pinterest, your family of origin, and all of the weddings you've already been to. You might be going into planning your own wedding with all of those ideas buried in your subconscious and not even realize it.
You might be blindly following the status quo and not even realize it.

The keyword in that sentence being 'you', of course. 

The way you get married matters.

Have you stopped to think about whether or not any of it means anything to you?

What would it look like if you turned off the noise and listened to your inner knowing; if you knew there were no rules whatsoever? (spoiler: there aren't)

had the audacity to create a wedding day that was exactly what you wanted?

created an experience that you're absolutely stoked on and want to daydream about even after the fact?

could feel harmonious about a completely unique day that's truly in alignment with you?

What if you...

- Niki + Ryan

Meg was amazing to work with. She is inclusive and really takes the time to get to know her clients, which really helps when it comes time for photo-taking. She started working on our wedding day long before it happened by keeping excellent contact and through very thorough questionnaires. Even though we hadn't met her in-person before, she already felt like a long-time friend and made our experience easy and fun.

In addition to everything, she is SO skillful and we absolutely love the photos she created. She is a master at working with natural light and the surroundings. The moments taken feel like us and capture our day beautifully. We can't thank you enough!

"Meg is relatable, welcoming, and inclusive."

- Sophie + Cody

Truly, Meg was with us every step of the way. She got to know us through a few phone calls and emails in the months leading up to our elopement and assured us that we wouldn’t be the awkward couple my husband and I assumed we would be. She constantly made us feel comfortable by reassuring us that this is our day and we should do whatever we want to make us happy. She handled a date change, multiple location changes, and day of site curveballs so seamlessly!

When Meg sent us our photos, our jaws literally dropped and we just stared at them for hours. We got multiple different types of scenery and different types of poses (although I hate saying that word because it didn’t feel like we were ever posing and actually felt natural). I would tell anyone to 100% go with Meg as your photographer, you will not be disappointed. We are so lucky to have these beautiful memories as pictures that Meg captured but also just the experience of spending the first day as a married couple doing what we loved outside and with a new friend helping us make new memories we’ll cherish forever.  We cannot recommend Meg enough!

"Meg knows what she’s doing big time and made the day more special than we could have ever imagined."

- Jasmine + Alejandro

Meg was extremely communicative and fast to respond throughout the whole process. She did so much more than capture our intimate moments! She helped us with the boutonnière, had emergency hobby 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 elopement a fairytale experience.

We also ordered prints and three framed photos from her website and are extremely happy with them!! The frames are gorgeous and great quality. The photos are stunning and I’ve never had such high quality photos before. They are so clear and vibrant. They also arrived very quickly after we ordered them and were packaged perfectly and protected.

"Meg was so amazing to work with!"

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.

my name's Meg & I'm here to help you create and preserve your dreamy wedding memories.

I'm an elopement + wedding photographer based in the Sonoma and Napa area in Northern California.

When my husband and I started planning our wedding day, we knew we wanted something very different than a traditional, big wedding day. We wanted an experience that was intimate, sentimental, and relaxed. And that's exactly what we created! We kept the traditions that made sense to us, and scrapped the rest without a shred of guilt.

I know what it's like to want something different for your wedding day than the rest of your family, and I'm here to help you through the process of doing the same: planning a wedding for you, first and foremost.

I want that for us!
