Hi. I'm Meg.

I'm the sort of person with a habit of saying things most would consider awkward. Reason: I'm a terrible actress. Any situation in which I'm expected to act contrary to my feelings drains me of energy. I crave genuine interaction with other people, and find myself continuously baffled at how "normal" behavior always seems to get in the way.

This awkwardness, I have found, is an immensely helpful tool in quickly and efficiently finding my kindred spirits - People who value honest interactions as much as I do. 

Finding photography has been a true gift, as I get to connect with the people I work with, and document their connections with those most important to them. Like I said, a gift.

I'm married to a very tall, very dark, very handsome, very bearded man. We live in a century-old, cozy little house with a cat named Kitty. We like collecting records and play in a band together. Our love is my life's proudest accomplishment, and has given me a place of security and belonging that I never imagined could actually exist.

Other than these, I love writing, books, ambient lighting, rain, the incessant magic of sunlight, and any song Conor Oberst ever wrote.

Why Hire Me?

I'm so pleased you would ask! First, I'm easy to work with. Honestly. I make things fun and relaxed. I like to think I have a good sense of humor, and care about getting to know my clients. (Yes, it has taken me a decade of intense therapy to be able to say nice things about myself, but I made it!)

Second, I have experience. Maybe not as much as some, but I have been behind the camera for over four years, and have shot over 40 weddings. That is a lot of time to learn from mistakes and work out kinks. I've done this enough to say that I know what I'm doing. 

Third, I do things differently. Individuality and sincerity are things I value greatly. You won't be getting the same old thing, you'll be getting personal documentation of your life from a unique and creative perspective.

Fourth, my weird hair makes me really easy to spot!

Last, if you play funky tunes, I'll dance at your wedding. I just can't resist.
