I'm Megan, a wedding photographer in Oahu ready to help with your elopement or wedding photographs.
I'm based in Honolulu and provide wedding photography services throughout the State of Hawaii and beyond. Let me document your big day in beautiful imagery unique to you.
Firstly, huge congratulations are in order. I can't wait to hear your engagement story. But first, please allow me to share what I think makes the best Oahu wedding photography. It's about listening and understanding more about you and your relationship. The things you love, who you are, and what matters the most. Then bringing that knowledge with me as I photograph your ceremony and reception.
Most of us living and working in Hawaii become expert destination wedding photographers because brides and grooms want to include the islands' breathtaking natural scenery in their pictures -- it's among the most beautiful and romantic anywhere in the world. Also, if you're still considering locations for your wedding, I'm pleased to help with suggestions for you to consider.
My wedding pictures are ideal for the heartfelt and passionate because they are uniquely about you. After all, they are engaging, natural, and one-of-a-kind. I approach you as a couple and work to bring your personalities to life in the images. We'll include traditional shots in your portfolio, but the ones you'll love the most are the candid views from unique angles that capture special moments eternally.
Picking a Wedding Photographer: A Big Decision
Your wedding is a huge moment in your life, and you want images that tell your story and resonate. Please check our portfolio to see examples of my work.
You want someone who listens and learns in advance, gets to know you and understands your personality and what you like (or don't).
Wedding photographs should be personal and capture each moment of your big day. You won't get the moments back, and you want to remember them clearly.
Personalities matter because you'll be spending your entire day with your photographer – I'm pleased to talk with you to make sure we have a good rapport.
Every bride, groom, and wedding is one-of-a-kind, and experience matters—nothing substitutes for understanding how, when, and where to find the best shots.

A lot goes into taking beautiful wedding pictures, and I'm proud to offer you the right experience and educational background. During more than ten years of professional experience, I've photographed dozens of weddings, both outdoor and indoor ceremonies. They've helped me hone my innate ability to observe and capture meaningful moments as they happen throughout your wedding day.
I've earned a Master's Degree from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, emphasizing photography.

"If you are looking for photography, this is your final stop!"
"So much to say about this amazing woman and her work! Megan remains on of the joyful treasures that I found through my engagement photos and wedding. I cherish each moment and photos she captured, and continue to look on my pictures daily as a reminder of all the beauty and blessings she captured. I am seriously in awe of her.
"GO WITH HER IF SHE'S AVAILABLE."
"She was the perfect accompaniment to my bridal party and to our whole crew. She was sensitive to everyone's aesthetic needs (women can be cray and we all have a "good" side) and she captured every moment without intruding. She fluttered throughout the day unnoticed unless to pause and soak the moment with me. (Can you tell I love her?)
"We could not have asked for a more amazing photographer!
"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.
“There is one thing the photograph must contain, the humanity of the moment.”

Speaking of flowers, I'll get the bouquets, centerpieces, and any ceremony elements such as floral arches, chuppahs, or mandaps. As you're reviewing the images, you'll be impressed by the level of detail.
