Yep. That's my butt. A self-portrait of my butt in New Zealand enjoying one of my favorite views. 

Hello, I'm Megan, a Midwest and United States-based destination wedding photographer. I have an infatuation with human connection, anthropology, travel and great outdoors. I'm a sucker for an adventure, emotional moments and really good food. A Florida native who has made the city of Chicago her home for the last 7 years but belongs somewhere in the mountains in front of a good campfire.

One day I woke up and I wanted to be a photographer. A photographer that wanted to capture human interactions and emotion creatively. For years I searched for that outlet and one day I stumbled upon wedding photography and became instantly connected. I discovered that photographing two people in love, their interactions, their story fuel my passion. 

I resonate with intimate, honest weddings, ones that present as unique and authentic, ones with tradition but they threw that tradition out the door and made their day an authentic representation of their marriage.

The not-so about

a photographer

As an artist, I am able to document weddings while incorporating my own artistic visions and yours. I love natural light, nature, and intimate moments.  It is important to me for you to trust me as photography is a collaboration. 




SOME FUN FACTS ABOUT ME


I'm a plant enthusiast with a love for herbs, essential oils, mid-century modern furniture and an organic lifestyle. I have an adventurous soul that can't sit still for very long. My cats + dog are the loves of my life.  My favorite tv show is Grey's Anatomy and I'm pretty devastated that House is over. I seem to really like it. Pop-punk is my jam. Brand New for days upon days. I'm tattooed and an unnatural redhead. I'm also 4'10" and proud of it. I'd be an interior designer if I wasn't a photographer. Christmas is my favorite holiday so you can sometimes catch me playing Christmas music in July. I wish every day was fall. My Grandparents are everything to me. 

My Approach

I'm an observer. I love to watch people, their connection, the intimate moments between them. I look for the imperfect, unexpected moments. My approach is to capture you as you. Capture the moments that matter. The outtakes, the "hidden" moments, the best moments, your laugher, the two of you together. Environment plays a huge role in my photography so I am always seeking unique locations that may be meaningful to you or provides interesting light. 

TravelLing is my second passion

Travel feeds my soul. It inspires me, drives me. It keeps my creative juices fueled and travel provides me with a new canvas to create a story on. I'm lucky to have a passion turned career that allows me the freedom to see the world. I am so grateful to document stories and real connection all parts of US, South America, Europe and New Zealand. I travel for a large part of my season. No place is off limits. Let's celebrate love in a place you love.  I'd love to see the entire world and capture a story in every place so no place is too near or too far. I'd love to be invited along.
