Meg is amazing and a real professional! Her experience in photography really shows in her work. From our first meeting with Meg, we were thoroughly impressed with how detailed, professional, and natural her approach was. We were not sure about having a photoshoot as we don't regularly take lots of pictures together but Meg really made us feel relaxed and calm by guiding us during our engagement shoot. We instantly felt comfortable and confident that she would do a great job as our wedding photographer.
Leading up to our wedding, she was excellent with maintaining communication and she gave us great information about how to prepare for the engagement shoot, how to plan our photo lists and what would work best with our timeline. In fact, she helped give good feedback about our timeline, which was extremely helpful. Our wedding was a DIY wedding, which meant that we did everything ourselves and didn't have a wedding coordinator but Meg was great with communicating with our wedding party about the timeline. We were also impressed with how open she was to suggestions about particular shots we wanted.
During our wedding Meg was very organized, efficient and kept everything moving along. She was so attentive about keeping us relaxed and she even was so helpful in keeping me hydrated. She would jump in to make sure we got the shots that we would treasure. Meg did an amazing job capturing candid photos and the essence of our wedding, all without us even noticing that he was floating around! Since we didn't have a videographer, we loved all the natural moments she captured of our guests and of us too of course!
She was very great with reminding us about the family portraits that we wanted to have. Meg was so great with all of our family and guests too! Some of our friends were so happy to have the chance to get a nice photograph taken that day. I must also mention that our wedding was outdoors so the full sun made it challenging to find good lighting but Meg was prepared as she arrived early and found several great spots around the venue to capture great pictures. She would quickly adapt as the elements would change and this is definitely not easy to do. She has a great eye for lighting. Meg went above and beyond as she even stayed longer to help break down the wedding decorations and pack the party rentals. She didn't have to but I could tell that she is a genuine person as she took action and helped clear things. We are so grateful to you Meg!!!
We were extremely happy with the quality of our photographs, we even had a guest mention that several of the final images look like a Renoir painting! If you're looking for someone who is professional, organized, thoughtful, experienced and overall a genuine person, Meg is the photographer to capture your special day. You won't go wrong with Meg Marie Photography! We highly recommend Meg for your wedding day!
