A story is something that is told for generations. It is something that makes you feel. It is timeless. It is honest. It is real. We capture the organic, small, imperfect, and emotional moments that tell the story of your wedding. We want you to relive it as if you were there. We capture the in-between moments that make, you, you. The laughter, the loud, and quiet moments. The moments that matter. When a distant relative discovers your wedding album tucked away in an attic long after the cake has been eaten, the flowers have become the earth again and your dress has turned a different shade, your photographs show your day frozen in time.

For contemporary couples with elevated taste.

Megan is an internationally published wedding photographer who lives in Union, Illinois. Her work can be seen in BRIDES, The Knot, Green Wedding Shoes, Junebug Weddings, Vogue and dozens of other publications.

If you like raw & honest photos, I’m your wing-woman. If you ask me, I am a self-proclaimed badass photographer that captures true emotion with all its grit and beauty. I'm also a loud, punk rock, ambivert who runs a cat rescue, gardens like she's a farmer and flies to her next destination any chance she gets.

AND I am a wedding & elopement photographer based in Illinois.

Hi, I'm Megan Saul.

Photographer, Storyteller, Educator & Your Hype Woman

Megan is an incredible photographer. Working with her felt like working with a friend not just a professional. She was easy to work and laugh with which meant my husband and I were able to feel 100% relaxed and comfortable. Our photos came out amazing and she trully captured our day in a special way.

Mandy & Carlos

Megan Saul is an incredible photographer. Fate truly brought us together and I knew she would understand our vibe immediately! She captured so many wonderful moments of our day, put our unique spin on our photos, and I laugh every time I look back at our moody photo booth pictures! She was truly more than a photographer to us but a friend through the whole experience. I couldn't recommend her enough!

Artists & Stories


Meghan & Kevin

Megan helped make our incredible wedding day -- the happiest day of our lives -- something we can cherish forever. Her photography not only captured the day's spirit but also all the sudden instances that now help us recall how emotional it was. Her attention to detail and her eye for angles, lighting, and composition are uncanny. We'll look at these photos for years and will forever be thankful to Megan for putting her heart and soul into everything she does, including our wedding. On top of all that, she is absolutely pro: she takes pride in her work and delivers only the best product and service. I could not recommend her any higher.
