I believe that elopements are more than just about hiring a photographer to take quality photos, it’s about providing an experience. It’s the in-between moments, stolen glances, and whole-hearted laughs that come along with who you are as individuals and as a couple that will tell your wedding day story for years to come. My goal is for you to forget that you're in front of a camera and feel like you're on an adventure and having the best day of your life. 

THE EXPERIENCE

 We're more than photographers. We'll be right beside you laughing, dancing, and playing while you live out the best day of your life!

ABOUT MEG

Elopements

Megan photographed our destination Hawaiian elopement. The pictures were TO. DIE. FOR. Megan has a gift of using the natural light and scenery to create the dreamiest pictures you’ll ever see. She made my husband and I feel very at ease in front of the camera with her fun personality, which comes across as genuine laughter and smiles in our pictures. She was also very organized with our timeline, kept everyone on track, and created a stress-free day. I would hire Megan for any future photography in a heartbeat.

Megan was an absolute dream to work with from the initial consultation to how quickly we received our gallery. As Matt and I planned our elopement, there were two things I had to have: A wedding dress that I adored, and a phenomenal photographer. And from the very beginning that was Megan! Not only did she take breathtaking pictures, she also helped me plan my elopement - From suggesting hair/make-up and florists to moving the pictures to Oregon so that we had sun on a very rainy day. I also want to speak to how comfortable she made Matt and I feel in front of the camera.

"MEGAN WAS AN ABSOLUTE DREAM TO WORK WITH."

Matt is in the military and to get him to smile in a picture is a job in itself. In fact, when I first contacted her, I ended the email with "While I'm the girl that cheeses too much, he's the one not to cheese at all". Therefore, when I received the gallery, I was floored. Nearly 99% (give or take a little) had a very "smiley" husband. That's because of Megan and the techniques she uses. If you're looking for the wedding photographer (or anything else!) that is going to capture the love that you and your partner have, don't look any further.

Whether you’re choosing an exciting destination to run off and get married at, relocating to a new area or simply traveling back to your hometown, I would be so honored and more than thrilled to travel and capture your special day. I'll work with you to determine the best package for your needs. We often create custom packages for our Destination couples. Destination weddings include a personalized travel quote - just to strictly cover a direct reimbursement of travel expenses. There is no cost associated with my travel time as documenting love stories in different locations is a passion of mine. The biggest questions I get: What do the travel costs include and how do the logistics work? 


Travel Details : 
+ Airfare for Megan - I’ll book at a peak time to get the best rates. 
+ Airfare for a second photographer (optional). If you choose to have a second shooter, I can bring along one of my trusted associates with just the additional cost of their airfare OR I can find someone experienced and local to the venue to work with me. Your timeline will be slightly adjusted based on if the second shooter is someone who I have previously worked with. This decision is completely up to you!
+ 2-3 nights lodging. Three nights are only required if flight times are not available early enough to be present at requested rehearsal dinners.
+ Transportation - rental car + incidentals
Logistics : I'll do a little research and send you a ‘generous’ travel quote. Once the ideal booking time rolls around, I’ll take care of all reservations and update your invoice as I do - hopefully knocking off a few of those dollars. All that is required is a direct reimbursement. If you have group lodging or have rented out a facility, I’m happy to stay anywhere you would feel comfortable staying yourself and being one of the fam!
