Gathering Light Photography was a true gem! I was actually looking for a photographer in the Big Sky, MT area & had ran across Gathering Light in an older bridal guide and had contacted Meghan not knowing they had moved to Colorado! But Meghan was still willing to travel to Montana & I am so thankful she did! Her style is one of a kind and her pictures are stunning! We weren't confined to a specific amount of hours and had unlimited time to cover everything! She even met me first in Bozeman for my hair/make up & then traveled to Big Sky for the ceremony & reception. She was super friendly and also brought a 2nd photographer with her and didn't even stop taking pictures when it started to hail! Don't know what we would have done without her!Sent on 08/23/2012

I have been absolutely thrilled with the photography services we have received from Gathering Light Photography. Meghan was phenomenal from the start, and she produces beautiful photos at a value. Meghan was always very quick with her responses to my questions. The photos she and her assistant took are beautiful, and very representative of our day. Meghan has more of a photo-journalistic style, but also effortlessly weaves in posed photos of the wedding party and large family groups. She is very talented at capturing moments of the day, like one of my new sister-in-law wiping away a tear during the ceremony. At the reception, Meghan and her assistant took some time during dinner and created a slideshow of some of the ceremony and cocktail hour shots they had taken, and set up a laptop for guests to view the slideshow. We were all very pleased with the preview photos we saw. Meghan and her assistant were very professional, and deftly handled large, small, and couple photo shoots. They maintained a pleasant demeanor and gave helpful directions for all family members and friends in photos. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!Sent on 07/09/2012

Meghan is an absolutely wonderful and talented photographer. She is a absolute joy to work with and does a great job at directing to you to ensure a wonderful photograph. My wedding was on a Thursday so I got my package 50% off! I could not be happier! Photos are one of the most important things of your big day and if you want to make sure the happiest day of your life is captured.. hire Meghan/Gathering Light!Sent on 07/03/2012
I throughly enjoyed every second I worked with Meghan! She is very artistic and has visions for each photo she takes before she takes it. She can look at something and create a masterpiece out of it by adding a certain angle or color to it. She is a visionary and an absolute dream to work with! I cannot wait to work side by side with her again. She is truly gifted and a genuine sweetheart. She has a gift and the most amazing personality to compliment that gift. I highly recommend her for any of your functions!
As a focused artist would, Gathering Light Photography was taking the time to create great photos using the inside of the building, and of course, used the beautiful mountain backdrop as a way of capturing the wedding at Breckenridge just a few weeks ago. We look forward to working with her again soon!
Meghan and her husband are amazing to work with. They really connect with their clients and because of this connection, they are able to take amazing photos. Also, because there are two of them, they are able to be in two places at the same time and capture moments that might be lost without a second shooter. I recommend Gathering Light Photography to all of my brides.
