You're here because you want to be sure...

Gosh I've never done professional photos before, I'm probably "awkward"

This time in your life is important and you'll never get this moment back

There are so many photographers out there, how on earth will I know who "the right one" for me is? (secret, it's easy just follow your heart)

You want photos that actually feel like you...real, just as you are





You may be thinking...

First, let me say that the majority of my clients aren't professional models or IG influencers. I work with real, down to earth people who simply want this time in their lives documented. Their love for eachother brings them to me. I've worked with countless couples, families and individuals.  Secondly, through 7 years of real life experience and 7 years of formal college level education, I've learned how to serve my clients and produce work they're excited for.

"Luckily we found Megan and the photos are so beautiful!! Everyone loves them, but not as much as us. She is genuinely excited and passionate about what she does. She gave a lot of advice as to different location areas and was prepared for everything. She was also very quick to edit. My husband and I cannot thank her enough! Highly recommend."

"Megan was a dream to work with!  

A beautiful sunrise engagement session for Sharon and Kellen was nothing short of gorgeous.  

Dushan planned his surprise proposal to his love, Emma, so perfectly.  With the ocean and cotton candy colored clouds, he popped the question...

"We have a wide variety of images that we love!"

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).

Laura's Family session


"Megan is an absolute DOLL!"

Our family vacationed in Oahu during the first week of March for Spring break and decided to take advantage of the beautiful scenery by taking family photos. From my very first inquiry to meeting her in person, she was so warm and personable! She took all of the guesswork out of selecting a location by providing beautiful choices on her website which we appreciated as we weren't familiar with the area. Megan made us all feel so comfortable and at ease during the shoot and it shows in the images she captured – pure joy! The photos are STUNNING and my entire family LOVES them. If you are in need of a photographer in the Oahu area, she should definitely be your choice. Her work is phenomenal!

"I am so grateful she landed in our lives when we were in need of a photographer."

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!!

How many hours of photography do we need?

You need the amount of hours that will realistically fit everything you want into the timeline. Generally, a full day wedding from getting ready to reception is 7-8 hours. While 2-3 hours is perfect for intimate elopements.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's included in your packages?

All my packages include high resolution digital files, fully edited images, an online gallery, print rights, and my guidance the entire way.  My higher end packages include more goodies :)

What does "editing" mean?

Editing is a photo term that describes the standard level of photo manipulations. It means I'll make your photos look amazing. This includes things like exposure, contrast, color and composition manipulations.

Do you "retouch" photos?

Retouching is another photography term that describes intensive isolated manipulations like body slimming, blemish removal, fly away hair removal, facial reconstruction.  This is the highest level of photo manipulation and I can do this on a case by case basis, with an added fee of $35 per photo. 

When will we see the photos?

My turnaround time for short elopements is 1-2 weeks.  Longer full day weddings will take 3-4 weeks. 

Can we add on more services like drone photography?

Yes! I have a DJI Mavic Pro drone. Let me know when you email me that you might be interested in a drone upgrade.

How do we book you?

A signed contract and downpayment of 50% is required to reserve my services. 

We want you to photograph our destination you travel?

I sure do! :D
