Stop looking for another photographer and BOOK BLUE JAR

Words can't describe how incredible Meg is, not only as an artist and photographer, but also as a person. Meg is not only great at what she does, but she is also passionate about it- and it shows not only in the photos she shares, but her personality. The minute I pulled up to the venue with my bridal party the day of our wedding, I saw Meg, and felt an immediate sense of relief. Meg鈥檚 demeanor is extremely calming, and her positivity and confidence is contagious. She is so fun and easy to not only work with, but also to be around. She made myself, my husband, our bridal party and family members feel so confident and comfortable while taking photos. On top of all of that, she took her time capturing such beautiful moments, both posed and candid. All of the photos we鈥檝e received so far are absolutely breathtaking, and truthfully indescribable. Meg played a huge part in making our wedding day extremely special and stress free. Having Meg there on your wedding day will not only make you want to have ANOTHER wedding so she can be there to photograph again, but her energy is so contagious that she鈥檒l make you wish she was there as a guest. I could go on and on about Meg鈥檚 positivity and passion and how beautiful she made our day... but if you look at her work, you can see it for yourself. If you鈥檙e looking for a genuinely beautiful person to work with, whose positivity and passion is contagious, stop looking for another photographer and book Meg. She is the BEST.

Just looking at her portfolio it鈥檚 clear that any couple would be lucky to have some of her pictures as souvenirs of their special day. You can tell that Megan has a true talent and eye for capturing the best pictures! I cannot recommend Megan enough!
