Choosing a photographer can be very stressful. You are trusting a stranger with your loved ones and with one of the most precious things...your memories! I completely understand, and want you to feel comfortable with choosing me. See what wonderful testimonials past clients have said.
"I can't say enough about what Megan has done for me. I presented her with a very unique idea for a photo session and she not only ran with it, and made me feel comfortable with it, but she also was immediately passionate about it and helped me tell my story and document my journey through cancer in an incredibly beautiful way. She immediately made me feel comfortable, she was incredibly professional yet it felt like my bff was taking my photos, and she never left me feeling like I didn't know how I should be posing or what should I be doing with my hand in that awkward position... she would always jump in and correct my pose or smooth a wrinkle in my clothing before she snapped her next photo. She took the time to notice details and made sure to capture me in the most flattering way possible, while still artistically managing to express strength and vulnerability at the same time. I couldn't be happier with my photos, and I will certainly be back for update photos as time goes on. Thank you for everything, Megan. I never would have thought that I would be saying this at this point in my life, but your photos made me feel beautiful, confident, and strong for the first time in months. You have a true gift." ~ See images from the session HERE
"We got our photos back and let me tell you, Megan is a mastermind behind the camera. When I started looking around to have my portraits taken with my soon-to-be husband, I was really anxious. I had never liked being in photographs before and my husband and I are very reserved about PDA. let alone someone photographing it. I walked away from the session feeling good. (sweaty, but good.) I was a little anxious because it was humid, foggy, and there were bugs EVERYWHERE and we weren't sure about lighting but I saw the photos and you had no idea it was cloudy and humid. Her post processing skills are amazing. And the kicker is I feel like a smokin' hot bride thanks to her. :) Needless to say when it comes time for babies and family photos we will be back!" ~ See images from the session HERE

Thank you so much!!" ~ See images from the session HERE
"Megan is AMAZING, not only at what she does but she is a phenomenal person as well.
After days of racking my brain for ideas for the perfect wedding gift for my soon to be husband, I sought out to find a great photographer who had a knack for boudoir shoots. I searched, and searched and stumbled upon Megan’s work, I just knew she would help me achieve the end result I wanted. Not to mention, saying I am a perfectionist is an understatement.
In every step of this process, Megan gave 100 percent at all times– from making time for my session on a SUNDAY to being readily available anytime I had questions. We met at a studio space in Grand Rapids, which is absolutely beautiful and gives so many options for awesome photos. She walked me through what the shoot would entail and we got started. She kicked off her boots, we played music and went to work. Megan is BRILLIANT at posing and setting the tone for a fun, yet professional session. It was as comfortable as working with my best friend!
I was so shocked when I saw my proofs, never have I felt so beautiful, strong and sexy. This is exactly what every woman needs in their life, it’s a GREAT confidence booster – especially before a wedding. The album and print are absolutely wonderful, even better than I had anticipated. Megan’s packages are priced perfectly for the quality of the product. I would recommend Megan for any type of session!!" ~ See images from the session HERE.

"Megan was a pleasure to work with. She has great leadership in directing me how to pose; an area I am not gifted in. We were in the cold and her attitude was nothing but sweet and upbeat. I like her both professionally and personally. She is crazy talented and has great beauty to her pictures. When you shoot with her you feel special and relaxed. I loved my shoot with her and the final product was amazing. I believe you get to feel like a celebrity with Megan and it's so worth it."
"I came to Megan with a last minute request and could not have been happier. Megan made the session extremely comfortable and it was a LOT of fun. I was so thrilled with the end results. I would recommend Megan to anyone! Megan really exceeded my expectations by far!!"
"My daughter had her senior pictures done this past Tuesday with Megan! I have 5 kids and so I have had a LOT of portraits done, and I can say that Megan was not only so nice and funny and laid back, but her creativity with poses was amazing! She put my daughter at ease and welcomed her ideas as well!" ~ See images from the session HERE
"I used Megan for my maternity photos, and she was awesome from start to finish. I spent a couple days researching West Michigan area photographers who appeared to be in my price range (planning for our first baby means we can't afford a $1000 photo package!). After looking at lots of photographers' online galleries I decided I was the most attracted to hers because of her beautiful use of natural light. When I contacted her she answered all of my questions quickly and we scheduled my maternity shoot right away. She was a lot of fun to hang out with and made it easy to smile naturally. The pictures turned out vibrant and beautiful. Her level of service is outstanding, while her pricing is very affordable! I can't wait to recommend her to all of my friends." ~ See images from the session HERE

"Megan nailed it!! The entire experience was absolutely perfect. Everything from the first phone call to the end product was seamless and easy. Her passion for her work is so evident in every shot she takes! By far, my best experience in a photo shoot ever! The glimpse of pictures she shows you on the back side of the camera are even more incredible when she puts them to print. I am still amazed by the pictures every time I look at them. She's amazing! I can't wait for the next session!"
"I'm a difficult customer to please! I don't like having my photos taken. Megan made me feel so comfortable! She is very patient and playful with our children, which has made for the best photos we have of our kids. And I must say that I was moved to tears when I received my proofs! She did a great job by giving me family photos that I am so happy to display! Her quality, professionalism and timeliness is unmatched! We are so pleased with her as our family photographer!"
“I had such a fun time watching Megan take pics of my newborn son. She had everything ready for us when we came over knowing we only have a small time frame of happy baby to work with. She had the heater and noise machine going so the baby was warm and happy and relaxed. She was so great, my son peed on every blanket and she just laughed and went with the flow! She is really easy to talk to and work with, she listens to your ideas and suggestions and is very helpful in knowing photography tricks and trades, I would highly recommend her!” ~ See images from the session HERE
"I was drawn to Megan based on her timely response to my email and her friendly personality. She always answered my questions and responded right away. When the day came for our photo session we continued to be impressed. Megan did an incredible job! We felt so comfortable with her and all of her suggestions. She knows exactly what she is doing with infant photography and was so patient with us and our new little one. So impressed with her creativity and professionalism. I'll definitely be contacting her again in the future :)" ~ See images from the session HERE

"Working with Megan was a wonderful experience! I was nervous about doing a boudoir photo shoot but she quickly made me feel comfortable and continued to do so throughout the entire shoot – it turned out to be such a fun shoot in the end! She paid attention to even the smallest details which made me realize how knowledgeable and passionate she is about what she is doing. The pictures turned out more gorgeous than I could have ever expected! I would highly recommend Megan to anyone looking for a photographer."
"Megan was absolutely wonderful during our photography session together. I was nervous, simply because I am not use to having my picture taken. Megan made me feel totally at ease within the first few minutes. She directed me and made great suggestions for the photos. By the end of the session, I couldn't wait to see what came out. Our time together was so much fun-- we laughed, joked, and got some amazing photos out of it, which are proudly displayed at in my mom's dining room. Thank you, Megan! You gave me (and my family) a beautiful representation of who I am. For that, I am forever grateful."
“Megan is a very talented photographer. She makes you feel at ease and enjoy your session. As a fellow photographer, I am quite specific in what I expect and Megan nails every shot. She is fun and skilled - what else could you want? I asked Megan to come to the hospital to capture our newborn baby boy. As he was our last baby, we wanted to document every minute. I wish we would have done this with all of our children's births! I will cherish these photos FOREVER! I didn't even know Megan was there - she was respectful and unintrusive. Yet, she captured every little part beautifully.”
"Megan was an absolute joy to work with. Her bubbly personality makes you feel so comfortable. She is professional and is very knowledgeable about photography. I told her we wanted a "fall" photoshoot and she didn't disappoint! The poses she came up with for us were endless. I would highly recommend Megan for your photoshoot and she will definitely be doing our next photoshoot! Thanks Megan!!”
"We thoroughly enjoyed our experience working with Megan! Not only is she professional, but also fun! We have three young children and I was worried they would be a challenge-but Megan got right to their level and made it a fun experience for them! She even got my husband to smile-which isn't an easy task at times. I would definitely recommend Megan to anyone who is looking for great quality photos at an affordable price."
