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!

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.

You made our day fun, relaxed, beautiful and effortless. The biggest gift you gave us was capturing our love for one another in a way we can always look back on and see. Thank you!

We loved Megan's work and personality. She is very easy to engage with and she helped us feel comfortable throughout our big day. Her sharp images captured everything - the energy of our guests, our special moments, and the beauty of our venue. We saw it all through out our wedding album. And as we share the images with loved ones, the response was unanimous: "your photographer was amazing!"

"your Photographer was amazing!"

Megan was amazing to work with for our wedding and I highly recommend her! Her photos of our wedding are BEAUTIFUL! Megan was extremely helpful, easy to work with, and professional. She went beyond what I believe most photographers would do in many ways, including reaching out to me during the planning process to see if she could be helpful and even visited our wedding venue several months in advance to check out photo opportunities. On the big day, she was very flexible, helpful, and accommodating to work with both of families. We found some beautiful, fun photo spots after the ceremony that Megan created some of our favorite pictures with. We were extremely happy to have work with such a talented, sweet, professional photographer and will always cherish the amazing pictures she created. I highly recommend Megan and am looking forward to working with her again.

"She went beyond what most photographers would do"

Megan did an outstanding job at my wedding. More than one friend who viewed her photos on social media said they were the best wedding photos they had ever seen! She is professional, gives great direction, knows how to have a good time while doing it, and has a great eye for backgrounds, colors, moods, everything. She asked for lots of detail beforehand ahead of time so when it was time to take formal family shots after the ceremony, she zipped through it. She knew how to work with me, get me loosen up and capture me in the most flattering light. I can't recommend Megan enough and am so happy to support a young entrepreneur!

"I can't recommend megan enough."

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!
