little love notes

Our photo shoot with Megan was amazing! We ventured out in the woods with our dog in our wedding attire and had a blast. At first, the both of us felt pretty awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera. But Megan gave us great pointers and tricks that helped us forget our awkwardness and start to enjoy ourselves. She was able to help us create natural, endearing moments that were captured perfectly.

She was up for anything, making sure we got the types of shots we wanted and encouraging us to get creative. I would definitely recommend her to anyone for any type of portrait! She is a wonderful person to work with and I couldn't be happier with the end results!

Working with Megan was such a joyful experience. Her personality shows through the way she conducts a photo session, due to her carefree spirit she is down to try anything new! She is a risk taker... pretty sure her safety was in question when she attempted to get certain angles for just the perfect photo, haha.

She never makes you feel as though things are rushed or that you can’t have fun with the process. She will laugh and crack jokes with you the whole time. She will also get to know you as a person throughout the whole session. She listens to your feedback and she encourages you to speak your mind about what type of photos you are wanting. We endured a rain storm in Fort Bragg to get some spectacular photos and she never once complained about the bone chilling weather. I highly recommend Megan to anyone looking for photos that show true passion, creativity, and just pure personality.

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!

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!

I recently did a bridal shoot with Megan and I couldn’t have been any more pleased with how everything turned out. We were scheduled to shoot outside in the woods and go for a forest, fairytale like theme, and while rain was in the forecast, and we tried to prepare ahead of time, we weren’t prepared for the downpour it was. 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.

Megan is such a kind, thoughtful, and creative person and working with her was a joy! She keeps it relaxed, simple, and the photos that come out at the end of it all are GORGEOUS. I was so pleased, and actually felt confident and pretty in them! I will definitely be working with her again!

My partner and I had never done a photo session before and we didn’t know what to expect. I was excited about the opportunity, whereas he was a little nervous. Maybe I was a little nervous too—neither of us has spent much time in front of a camera. Megan was very kind and communicative leading up to the photo shoot, answering my many questions and providing styling tips.

When it finally came time to actually meet up to take the pictures, Megan had us laughing for the entirety of the photo shoot. Although my guy and Megan had never met before, the three of us were chatting easily like old friends. Working with her felt effortless, and she made it easy for me and my guy to be ourselves. He is extremely camera shy, even when it is just me taking his photo, so I was thrilled at how organic the emotions looked and felt in the photos.

Megan truly captured the essence of our relationship. With her professional direction and encouragement we posed and enjoyed each other’s company while she snapped away. Our happiness and love pours out of the photos!

"Whenever I look at these photos I get a huge silly grin - they make me fall in love with him all over again!"

Megan was super friendly, helpful, and down to earth. She gave us ideas on how we should dress before the shoot so that we knew what to bring. I was able to pick a location that was meaningful to my boyfriend and me and we met there just before sunset. My boyfriend and I were so surprised by how easy the whole thing was, and the way Megan set up the shots felt completely natural. 

Originally, I had thought it would be something along the lines of pose #1, 2, 3 which could have been awkward. Instead, Megan gave us suggestions of ways to interact with each other; for example, during the shoot, we danced, we ran down sand dunes, we walked along the water and we played tag...just to name a few. Megan reminded me that her intent was simply to take pictures of us just being us. In retrospect, that makes perfect sense. When we received our gallery, I was amazed that I could see the chemistry I feel for my boyfriend.

These stunning photos made me reminisce on all of the love, challenges, and growth that we have experienced throughout our relationship. Megan is incredibly talented and you won’t go wrong with choosing her as your photographer.

Megan photographed an engagement session for me and my fiancée 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.
