About Meredith McKee Photography
When I was growing up, my dad would send me postcards from everywhere he traveled to in the Navy. I strung each one together and hung them in my room. In 8th grade, on a trip to New York City with my mom, I had an ah-hah moment … I wanted to take the pictures on those postcards myself, and not just buy them in a store. My parents bought me my first “real camera” after that trip & the way I saw the world was changed forever.
I fell in love with photographing weddings when I was just seventeen years old. I arrived at the University of Virginia knowing I wanted to make a career of documenting people in love. I assisted one of Charlottesville’s best wedding photographers for all four years of college & struck out on my own before graduation. I know weddings inside and out – from my experience as a wedding planner, to working for custom letterpress stationers. I have photographed over 100 weddings and love to help my couples with every step of the planning process.
My (now) husband, Kevin, and I decided to begin our own adventure together by moving to the beautiful Pacific Northwest in 2012. We enjoy trying out new restaurants, hanging at local breweries, and taking our adorable puppy, Lemon*, on walks in our neighborhood. We love to travel, whether it’s visiting my family back on the east coast or jetting off to Thailand for our honeymoon. I know first hand that marriage is awesome and I’m excited to get to document the beginning of yours!
