My name’s Meg and I’m an elopement + wedding photographer based in Northern California. Not only am I a photographer, but I’m also your elopement resource, trail guide, and hype woman! I help couples transform their deepest desires into the wedding experience of their dreams outside in beautiful places.
I think it’s important to know that I not only advocate for my couples to design their dream wedding experience, but I did the same for me and my husband. My own 18-guest wedding took place in September 2021 and designing the day around what felt right to us was a huge focus, regardless of what “tradition” (or my parents) said. At times it was hard to stick to my guns when faced with their disappointment, but I knew in my heart of hearts that this was the wedding day that truly made me happy more than anything else. That’s actually what my mission is as a wedding photographer: teaching couples to build a wedding day that is as meaningful as possible by learning to question the status quo, and challenging yourself to listen to your intuition. There are so many alternatives to your dream wedding day besides the way it’s always been done!
This is the beauty of intentionally designing your wedding day. I’m not here to tell you that you should ditch every single tradition and do the opposite just for the hell of it. But I AM here to tell you that you owe it to yourself to ask questions about whether a tradition is truly serving you, or if doing it another way would be better and more aligned with how you want to experience your wedding. If I sound like someone you want on your team for your day, I’d love to chat with you and hear all about it!
