The affect and impact I've made on people lives is the BIGGEST and most rewarding form of social proof. It is in fact, the only social proof I care about. What my clients feel when they receive their photos and the experience they've had with me, is the reason I've been a full time professional photographer for 11 years.
I hope you enjoy reading thru these testimonials and that they resonate with you.
"We worked with Megan for our engagement photoshoot and are 1,000% excited to work with her for our wedding!! Megan was recommended to us by a friend and when we saw her work and reviewed her website, we were instantly drawn with her passion for photography and her honesty with her approach. Absolutely loved how she outright mentioned that she is not one who does orange skin tones and "trendy" edits. We were looking for a photographer whose portfolio included images that were timeless and clean, while also evoking genuine emotion, and that was truly evident in her online galleries!
We met online via zoom for an initial meeting and felt immediately at ease that everything that's advertised in her website is an accurate reflection of who she is as a person and photographer-- kind, honest, talented, and funny!
Megan was also so considerate and accommodating, as she took some family portraits for our best friends as well. We wanted to show off her amazing work to our loved ones and we are so glad she was able to get some great shots of everyone. It's a cliche-- but my fiance and are were really worried about being behind camera because we are awkward with our bodies and are nervous about our smiles, but Megan provided the best and most natural guidance throughout the photoshoot and you really cannot tell how awkward we are the way our photos came out!
We are already so in love and imagine we will fall deeper in love with our wedding photos. If you are still trying to decide on a family, engagement, wedding, or brand photographer, we 1,000% without a doubt recommend booking with Megan."
"Such a dream working with Megan and can't recommend her enough! We found her by chance as we were following up on different referrals. It was through another referral's IG that we came across her account and loved her stunning images. We were planning a small vow renewal for our 20th anniversary with our kids and immediate family. It was really important to us to capture all the candid moments with our family.
When we met her over Zoom, it really sealed the deal. She was so warm and kind, seemed truly interested in getting to know us and our story. She was super helpful in providing additional local vendor referrals. The day of, I was a ball of nerves and was also feeling self-conscious. Megan was so encouraging and gentle with her direction. She helped me feel more comfortable and confident, and was such a great energy to have around us on our special day. We received our photos ahead of schedule and were just blown away with how beautifully she captured everything. Thank you, Megan!"
"Megan was incredible to work with! We really felt like she got to know us as a couple and asked us a lot of questions prior to the wedding day. After our initial consult via Zoom, we knew that she was going to be the right choice. As a queer couple, we wanted a photographer who made us feel at ease and Megan checked all our boxes. She worked well with us and our family to capture all the beautiful moments from our wedding. We could not be happier with our photos and we owe a big thank you to Megan. We also had a family session the next day and Megan was great. She was flexible with our timeline and handled our big family with ease. We would highly recommend Megan!!"
I'm SO happy with having Megan as my engagement shoot photographer! This was our first time doing a couple's shoot, and we honestly felt so comfortable with her. Megan was able to capture candid moments and help us with poses! She looked through inspiration photos on our Pinterest and nailed it! We were lucky enough to be able to book Ossipoff Cabin, which was just such a magical place, overlooking the western part of Oahu. We are just so happy with our experience- so we highly recommend booking with her!
"There are truly no words to express how amazing it was to work with Megan on our wedding day. From our very first Zoom call, we knew she would be our photographer, and we instantly felt like we had known her for years! She really took the time to get to know us, what we had in mind for our wedding, and she delivered the most stunning photos beyond our wildest dreams!
Megan is incredibly professional, and knew exactly what shots and vantage points would create the most epic photos on our special day. She delivered us a sneak peek of our photos only a few days after the wedding which was so fun to show our family and friends! The entire gallery is absolutely stunning and her editing and lighting skills are truly unmatched. She made me feel like the most beautiful girl in the world and we could not be more thrilled with our photos.
We cannot recommend Megan more as a photographer for any special occasion you may have. She was an absolute joy to work with and we hope we have an excuse to work with her again soon! Thank you, Megan!!!"
Wow! Just WOW! Megan is amazing and her work is incredible. We were having such a hard time finding a photographer for our wedding this past March and then we found Megan on Instagram. I didn't reach out to her immediately because I assumed she'd be way out of our budget since that seemed to be the theme during our search. After a couple of weeks, I decided to just reach out and I'm so glad I did. Shortly after exchanging our first emails, we were on a zoom call with her. My husband and I can be pretty introverted and she immediately put as at ease, we felt so comfortable w her. I loved the fact that she truly wanted to get to know us and seemed genuinely interested in what exactly we wanted out of our wedding photographs. Half way through the zoom call we knew she'd be our photographer. She kept in touch throughout the months before our wedding. She was so helpful with recommendations and also in calming me down when I was having meltdowns over my other not so professional vendors. The day of the wedding she showed up right on time, was wonderful and down to earth. The day before the wedding my chair rental vendor completely ghosted me and I was in panic mode, luckily last minute I was able to find another vendor but unfortunately we'd have to pick up the chairs and set them up ourselves. Immediately upon hearing this, Megan volunteered to help set up and said a bride shouldn't have to do that on her wedding day. When I say she was far more than our wedding photographer, I mean it. Oh and our wedding photographs came out AMAZING!!! We are so happy and grateful to her for capturing our day the way she did. She had dinner with us and our guests and everyone loved her. Please book her, you will not regret it! Thanks again Megan!
"I went into the search for a photographer with my head hanging low. I didn't think it was going to be possible to find someone meeting my description. He or she needed to love natural light, color in all it's beautiful shades, detest overly posed couples shots/ group wedding photos or at least hear my pain (no jumping! None, zero, zilch, nada), was willing to travel to Yosemite for not one, not two, but three nights, and wasn't going to completely alter the budget we'd set out for the wedding. In addition to these limiting parameters, I was looking about six months beforehand because we didn't know we needed a photographer until about 6,708 people told us that we did.
In the great scheme of wedding photography, Megan is relatively new but the shots she had on her site of Hawaiian weddings and so many stunning city hall ceremonies were a great representation of her talents. Of course, it was meeting her that was the real clincher. She got my slightly crass humour (sorrymom) and was incredibly bubbly, kind, and encouraging. She wasn't going to do anything we didn't want (cake cutting...nah) but knew sometimes couples like a bit of direction. Her final presentation of all of the photographs looked stunning and she was going to send us everything in the CUTEST box- I'm a sucker for presentation..
I digress. This is really all about the photos. Really, I'll let them speak for themselves (posted here) but basically I felt like a stunner, she made my foolishly handsome husband look even more debonair in digital form and most importantly, she listened to what I wanted. Oh and every photo was retouched to make us look pristine. Boom. GO WITH HER IF SHE'S AVAILABLE."
"We could not have asked for a more amazing photographer! Megan is amazing and we are so grateful to have worked with her. We looked at many vendors on Maui, and met several as well, and it was clear that Megan was going to be the best partner for us. Photography was one of our most important vendors so we poured hours into research. She is kind, flexible, responsive, super professional and truly cares about her couples. Could not recommend her more!"
"We wanted some family photos while in Maui. We are fans of journalistic/lifestyle photography. We knew we didn't want photos that were unnatural or too posed, which are the type of photos you get with photographers at the resorts. Megan was amazing to work with, and she did a great job capturing our little family. Getting outdoor pictures with a little one can be a challenge, especially when they are sleepy. Megan brought a toy that really captivated our 1 year old's attention, and she did a fantastic job managing all the elements during our session (wind, light, the unpredictable tide, our energy).
Coordinating with Megan over email and text was a breeze. She was very responsive and made it easy to meet with her. We have a wide variety of images that we love! I'm so glad we found Megan -- we'll definitely call her again when we are in Maui."
"We LOVED working with Megan! It was such a pleasure working with her and having her be apart of and capturing such an important day for us.
I stumbled upon Megan's Facebook page from friends. We fell in love instantly and it was an easy decision to do business with her after our contact with her.
She captured all the moments, big and small as well as certain specific photos that we wanted to capture in different areas of San Francisco City Hall and family photos following the ceremony.
Her expertise and experience with City Hall is unsurpassed and knows how to deliver those ideal, picture perfect photos!
She takes such time, thoroughly enjoys her work and it shows. We received our photos from her in less time than expected, which was a pleasant surprise. We look forward to working with Megan again in the future with baby and/or family photos.
Thank you Megan for capturing all the emotions of our wedding day, it was exactly what I imagined it to be. I look forward to looking back at our photos and sharing them with family and friends for years to come.
If you are looking for a photographer, Megan is who you want to hire!"
"Megan is an incredible photographer, and my husband and I are SO glad we chose her for our engagement photos and our wedding. She is so kind, easy to talk to, and she knows how to make you look like a million bucks!
When we arrived to meet her for our engagement photos at the Shoreline Park in Mountain View, she told us she had gotten there ahead of time to get some ideas and had already scoped out some great spots for pictures. She is professional, thoughtful, and gave suggestions and directions when we were out of ideas for poses. Doing the engagement photos was a great way to get to know Megan before the big day, and it also gave us a chance to experience being the main focus of the camera for a long period of time. The photographs were just gorgeous, with vivid colors and wonderful contrast. After that photo shoot, we knew we didn't have anything to worry about on our wedding day.
Megan absolutely came through with flying colors on the day of the wedding. She and her assistant captured the day beautifully, and I really appreciate how they managed to take so many action and candid shots in a way that did not distract me, my husband, or our guests from the event that was taking place. They were stealthy ninjas at the ceremony, photographing all the right moments from many angles. I never noticed them once! The quality of the photographs matched those from our engagement pictures, and my husband and I are just thrilled with them. It is clear to see that Megan has a great talent and passion for photography. Thank you so much Megan, you are the best!!"
"Oh my goodness!! Megan is truly a magical goddess in every way! I am so grateful she landed in our lives when we were in need of a photographer. My husband and I booked our maternity photoshoot with Megan while visiting Maui. Megan flew all the way from Oahu just to make our baby-moon dreams come true! She used to live and work in Maui and knew the location so extremely well. By knowing where would be best to shoot, she helped to make the process absolutely seamless and stress-free. She was so friendly and personable. She made us both feel so comfortable. We both appreciated her attention to details as well, small things like hair or a bunched up shirt & directing us to have the best angle. She is a professional in every way and made our session so enjoyable and special! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Megan! We will cherish our maternity photos forever, they are absolutely breathtaking!!"
