I am Meg Runion Perdue, an artist, photographer, and wife located in Charlotesville, Virginia. My life has always been filled with art, photography, gardening, and craft projects for as long as I can remember. My photography inspiration first came from my father; as a child I remember sneaking into the cabinet that held old 35mm slides my father took while in the Navy between 1965-1969. I immediately became fascinated with the people within the photos and began to imagine and dream of the stories behind these people and places; precious snapshots in time. lt was then I first understood the power and importance of a photograph.

My love continued to grow in high school where I was introduced to the darkroom. I would spend hours in the darkroom watching stories appear on the developing paper before my eyes.

After high school I went on to receive my BS in biology from James Madison University and was given the opportunity for some amazing travel and experiences in the biology field working for the Forest Service and US Fish and Wildlife Service throughout the US. While I loved working in the field I kept coming back to photography, art, and any diy project I could get in to and quickly realized it was my true passion in life. I returned to Charlottesville in 2004 and began my career as an artist; I have since photographed countless weddings, families, and portraits throughout the US and abroad.

Meg was so amazing to work with! She was fun, flexible, and professional. Her vision is so fantastic and she is willing to do anything to get a great shot. We are anxiously awaiting our final photos, but her work with the engagement photos was absolutely stunning. On the day of the wedding she made sure to get every photo we wanted and handled my disorganization like a champ. Her assistant Brandon was equally great - my husband raved about him. They are both the kind of people you walk away from wishing they were your friend! Do yourself a favor and hire Meg for any event you want to remember forever!

Meg was awesome and totally worth every penny! If you weren't looking for her at the ceremony, you wouldn't have known she was there. She was so professional and helpful throughout the entire planning process and during the wedding. She never once stopped shooting during the eight hours that she was on site. Her pictures are so full of light and are just gorgeous. If I did it all again, I'd definitely keep her on my vendor team.
