  • “I had the privilege (yes, it was mine) of having Meg shoot our wedding. We had a lot of nay-sayers when we told our family we wanted to get married in Michigan in November – no leaves on the trees, likely to have grey skies, etc. Our photos (especially those we shot outdoors) were so incredibly beautiful, we were blown away. Meg has a very unique ability to capture the most beautiful details in the smallest of moments. The one thing I found to be the most important take away from working with Meg was that instead of feeling like she was simply photographing our wedding, she was more of a guest whom I WANTED there because I simply enjoyed being around her. She’s extremely professional, she’s got the best demeanor and can make you feel comfortable no matter the circumstance…she’s got a heart of gold. What more could you want? Our photos are pieces of art – we will treasure them forever, and we will always be so appreciative of the incredible woman that captured all of our special moments!” – Dani

  • ‘Megan was an absolute joy to work with (as was her second shooter Amy) and I’m so pleased with how our pictures turned out. It was absolutely worth every penny to have beautiful pictures of our special day, and she even captured many little moments we missed because we were so busy. Her photos are creative, artistic, and her candid shots are amazing (they look like they’re straight from a magazine). All my family and friends have raved over our pictures, and I’m so proud to share them. We have too many great ones to choose from! Megan was easy to work with, which was a big help when I was so busy planning. She put us at ease while shooting, and we had fun despite the intense heat of the day! We can’t wait until the next time we’re able to have a shoot with her!’ – Sarah F.
  • ‘Meg is AWESOME to work with!! She’s hilarious, easy-going, and captured our wedding day perfectly! I highly recommend Meg !’ – Megan D.
  • ‘Where do I begin? We knew that the photographer for our wedding was one of the most important parts of our special day so we did not take the decision lightly. We scoured the internet for photographers from the Chicago-land area as well as SW Michigan and were absolutely floored by Meg’s work on her website and knew almost instantaneously that she was the photographer for us! Meg is truly beyond compare – she’s great with communication, has a wicked good eye for locales and capturing particular moments, all while being super supportive and willing to listen and put up with our crazy antics. She made us feel so comfortable and we know the pictures are a-mazing! If you are like us and looking for a photographer in the Chicago-land/SW Michigan area there is NO BETTER choice than Meg. We’re already hatching plans for other reasons to have her capture more of our memories because she was SO wonderful to work with! Thanks again for everything, Meg, you were fantastic!’ – Nick 

 

  • ‘I couldn’t be happier with our decision to have Meg as our wedding photographer!! The photos are absolutely beautiful and she really captured all the details of the day. She is very personable and fun and you can really tell she loves what she does. I can’t wait to work with her again in the future!!’ – Stephanie V. 

 

  • ‘Meg was a joy to work with and did a fantastic job capturing our wedding day!! Highly recommended and already photographing a close friends wedding in June 2014.’ – Jillian N.

 

  • ‘OMG!!!! I am laughing and crying as I go through these. Soooo many great photos! I love them! I wanted to call you on the phone to tell you “in-person” how elated I am, but just realized I don’t have your phone number and can’t find it online. HA! So, I wish I could convey these sentiments to you that way, but this will have to do for now. HA! You REALLY captured our family. I can’t get over it! They are just sooooo, soooo beautifully done. The shoot itself just felt like we were hanging out and having fun and I kept wondering how you were going to capture those moments and you did…so beautifully. I cannot wait to put these on our walls and share with our friends and family. 
     
    Thank you again! Job well done my dear. :)’ – Holly

 

  • ‘My fiancé and I had the opportunity to have our engagement pictures taken by Meg in a woodsy setting. We were both a little nervous, but she was an absolute joy to work with! Meg had some great ideas, and even sent me some photo ideas to get a feel for what our style was. When she came to shoot, it was like the three of us hanging out and having fun together. The shoot captured candid interactions between us, and highlighted our personality and relationship so well. The images looked like a magazine shoot they were so beautiful! It was fun to get to know her too, she was so relaxed and a blast to spend time with. Her photo turn around time was so fast! Within a week we had over 200 images edited and delivered via an easy download site. If you have the opportunity to secure Meg as your wedding or family photog, I would highly recommend her! She will be taking our new family’s photos for years to come. :)’ – Darlene

 

  • ‘Megan was the perfect fit for my wedding day for so many reasons, but the top two reasons include value and ease. Megan has the talent and artistic direction that people cannot learn, but are born with. It’s because of this talent, apparent after our engagement shoot, that I knew I could relax and on my wedding day and trust her 100%. She was the best money we spent on the entire day – her photos and photo journalistic style and portraiture will live on forever.’ – Patty

 

  • ‘We met Meg through a friend who had hired her for their wedding in the summer of 2013. When we got engaged later that summer we knew right away that we loved her work and wanted to have her shoot our story. She traveled to us for our engagement photo session later that fall and worked with us on shooting us in all of the areas that meant so much to us. We continued to stay in touch over the coming months to ensure we were both properly prepared for the wedding day and that no pictures or memories were missed. Her professionalism was top of the line and I cannot rave enough about Meg as a person. She is so kind and truly loves her profession. Lastly, as any bride will tell you…..it is tough to wait for your pictures from your wedding as you want to see them ASAP! Meg’s turn-around time for the cool blog she does and the entire wedding preview albums was extremely quick (I received my links a week before a friend who was married 2 weeks prior to us) and this was in prime “wedding season”. I would suggest her to anyone and cannot wait to have her shoot our life events in the years to come.’ – Gretchen
