Yesterday @kmkyle13 and I went wandering around SF for her lifestyle branding session and had such a dang good time! Kasie has a side hustle as a Monat rep and she wanted to do a session to have insta content for that. She wanted a a casual and fun vibe for her portraits and also some photos of her working on her phone because that's where she does most of her biz work! SHE NAILED IT. Check out more sneak peeks in my stories -- they'll be up until tonight! Would you be interested in a session like this?! or have any questions about it? IF SO, send me a DM and we can chat!! if you book me for a branding sesh, you can 1000% count on me saying oh my gosh yaasss, you look so good!! a million times from behind my camera, even in a busy coffee shop like yesterday. not sorry. 💋
let's talk couples sessions. here's the thing. . I believe your session should be a reflection of what YOU want for yourselves, not what society or tradition thinks you should do. can you picture those stuffy and stiff engagement pictures from way way back in the day? smile, look this way, move your arm up juuustt a bit... how about nope. don't get me wrong, I will FOR SURE guide you during your session so you look freaking fabulous, but at the same time I'm super hands off and capture you two AS YOU ARE. . if you want to go on an adventure with your backpacking gear, and hike a few miles to a vista point, I'm there. if you want to hang out at home while you snuggle and make funfetti cake, count me in. If you want to fly out of state to adventure somewhere new for your session (or dance on the beach like these two), I'll be standing by to join you. . and PS. you absolutely DO NOT NEED to be engaged to have a session! George and I had our first session together two months after we met and it was the BEST thing. I still have some of those photos framed around the house. . do you have a significant other who you love like crazy? do you want gorgeous photos of the two of you to cherish forever? sweet. those are the only qualifications you need to book a session. sound awesome to you? send me a DM and let's get this party startedddd!! 😄👏
Chelsea and Adam's wedding was so magical. I mean, LOOK AT THIS FAIRYTALE FOREST VENUE. and then their ceremony was just tooooo good. I was crying all the way through it. one of my favorite things that they did was a ring warming as a way to involve their guests. they had their rings tied onto a velvet ribbon, and it got passed around the entire audience, one by one. the intent was for each person to bestow love and peace and all the well wishes to their marriage. dang. it was so beautiful to watch. I loved snagging some shots of guests passing their rings through their hands. . swipe for some of my fave images of their ceremony and the ring warming! and then I dare you to tell me if that doesn't make you want to do the same thing in a forest for your wedding. 😍🖤 #allyouwitness . second shot for @ofloveandmagic ✨
The last 4 days off were so dang nice. I spent so much of June shooting and traveling that all I wanted to do was relax at home all weekend and that was exactly what I got. I spent one day in bed all day reading a new book (I don’t even remember which day that was 🤣), hung out with a bunch of friends on a few days (who also taught me to play poker last night 👌🏻), and thoroughly enjoyed all the time I got to spend sleeping in. I spent most of today editing and designing some new business cards (which I’m dang STOKED on!) and once my laptop’s done with its update I’m gonna head back and keep pushing through my editing pile... so that’s what I’ve been up to! How was your weekend?!
I'm slowly amassing a collection of stunning different landscapes like this and I'm not mad about it. I have a number of them already printed and hung on my office wall, and I'm for sureee gonna be adding this beauty to the wall of fame. golden hour in a lupine meadow in the forest is just 👌🏻
haayyyy it me! it's been a while since I've said hello and introduced myself sooo figured it was about time I did it again! 😊 . my name's Megan but please call me Meg -- I secretly (or not so secretly now haha) love it when people do that. it's my literal childhood dream come true. sooo much of the time you'll find me like this, instagramming or emailing clients or doing other work on my phone with a beer nearby. and yeah, I'm a craft beer snob. love me some indie local made brews. . I've been a photographer for 10 years, but didn't launch my business until November 2018, and here's why: it had never, ever occurred to me that I could have photography be my job. never. it wasn't until almost two years ago, in October 2017, that that thought finally struck me and I totally had this lightning bolt moment like oh my gosh I COULD do photography for a living! Whaaattt. (@sunshineshannon I'm almost positive this revelation came solely from finding you and stalking your work and later DMing you with questions-- so thanks for being that spark 😉✨) . so now, I'm literally living my dream out of taking other people's pictures. it's pretty wild. I'm still in the very beginning stages of my business and journey, and have such wild dreams for where I want it to take me, and am so stoked for the rollercoaster of life I know is waiting for me ahead. thank you for following me along on this and supporting me, and for my clients who I literally WOULD NOT BE HERE WITHOUT. 🖤 . fun fact about me // fruit infused beers are my absolute favorite. raspberry, blackberry, watermelon, guava, you name it. (and I have had all of those) if it's on the menu, I'm gonna drink it. 🍻 . 📸 // @esphotog
