I believe that wedding photography is 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. 


 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! 


Megan Montalvo Photography is a destination documentary style engagement, wedding and elopement photographer based out of Seattle Tacoma Washington. I capture stories all over the Pacific Northwest, on the East Coast and worldwide. Feel free to explore my site and send me a note. I cannot wait to be friends!

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.

Destination Weddings, Elopements & Engagement Sessions

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!
