ENGAGEMENT + COUPLES PHOTOS

WASHINGTON + Oregon Adventure

Engagements, anniversaries, maternity, just for the heck-of-it...I'm here for it all.
You can capture memories with ease, confidence, and authenticity. I’ll be your guide.  When you decide to forge your own path and plan an adventurous session? You need someone to come alongside you and create a step-by-step plan so that your session is intentional, low key, and a dream come true.

Just like you, I’m in it for the in-between moments, stolen glances, wholehearted laughs, and epic views. My goal is to capture all the raw and authentic memories that you’ll treasure while helping you savor your quick get-away and completely forget you’re in front of the camera.


Taking photos can be genuine, natural, and true-to-you.

Our experience working with Megan was a dream! I’m from out of state so when I began the search for an elopement photographer from Washington I wasn’t sure where to start. I stumbled upon her website and fell in love with the beautiful photos she had captured of previous elopements and weddings and decided to book Megan. She was so helpful through the whole planning process. From FaceTiming me, answering all my questions, giving location ideas, weather forecasts, and down to the most intricate details, Megan knows her stuff!!! After our experience, I can’t imagine working with anyone else on my wedding day! It was pouring down rain the majority of the day and our photos still turned out perfect! She’s so professional, kind and will truly give you the best wedding photos possible! She’s amazing! - Kayla S.

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.

It is evident from Megan’s portfolio that she is an incredibly talented photographer and as such, having Megan capture our Mt. Rainier elopement was a no brainer. Megan was not only our photographer who gave us stunning photos, but she also acted as our coordinator. She helped us through the permitting process and coordinated timing and location with us and our officiant. We simply had to show up. Megan made us laugh and feel comfortable in front of the camera. We couldn’t be happier with our photos. Thank you, Megan for everything!

I could write a novel about Megan and her incredible skills, but basically, my husband and I loved working with her! The engagement session really helped us develop a relationship with her before our wedding. She also make us feel very comfortable throughout our shoot and our wedding day. Megan was always very professional, yet personable, letting her own fun personality bring ease to the day. This woman knows her stuff and we cannot support her enough. After our wedding my father took time to mention how much he admired her work ethic. Did I mention she was almost 9 month pregnant at the time? It didn't slow her down at all. She truly impressed everyone. All our family and friends cannot stop commenting on our photos. They're simply beautiful.

check out our destination & pnw

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! 


SHOULD YOU WEAR?

I'm here to help you every step of the way while you prep for your session!

Listen, I know it can feel like an impossible task to pick out what to wear for photos. You suddenly feel like you have nothing to wear, but chances are everything you need is already in your closet! Here are a few guidelines I’ve put together so you can be sure to look your best, while still making sure the images are focused on your love, not what you’re wearing. 

Full disclosure, I'm no fashion expert. I’ll be the first to admit that it’s easier for me to help others than it is myself and I barely meet society's standards on a regular day. I wear mostly athletic clothes and Birkenstocks with socks people so chances are, you're doing alright. Keep in mind, these are only guidelines, not rules. The most important thing to me is that you guys feel and look like yourselves, so you can look back on your photos and know that was you in this phase of life. I'll take care of the rest!
