When I began looking for a wedding photographer, I was looking not only for someone with great artistic style and skill, but also someone I could trust and connect with. After ten minutes on the phone with Megan, I knew that she was the photographer I had been looking for. Megan is incredibly talented with a camera, and she has all the characteristics necessary to be a great photographer: a great sense of humor, incredible patience, the ability to make anyone feel at ease, and a real passion for storytelling.
More than anything, Megan is a true professional. She is very genuine in her desire to produce products that her clients love, and she is willing to go above and beyond to make this happen. She helped us create a custom package that was exactly what we wanted, she stayed late on our wedding day as a last minute request, and she made sure we were perfectly happy with the photos and albums that she created before she produced a final product. She understood that we wanted a photographer that would capture our day in the least invasive manner, so she took our formal portraits quickly and effortlessly, and shot candids that we didn't even know she took until we saw our pictures.
There are so many things that Megan a wonderful photographer, but the one I think says the most about her is her grace under pressure and her ability work with the difficult personalities that emerge as a result of stressful wedding planning. Megan was able to manage everyone form my bridesmaids to my mother-in-law with incredible ease so that I was able to enjoy my wedding day, and she did it with a smile on her face. To this day, my guests comment on how nice my photographer was and how much they appreciated her ability to direct people in a way that was friendly, yet firm.
Megan is a wonderful photographer, person, and friend, and I am lucky that I found her.
Yes, a wedding takes months of planning, wanting each step of the way to be all that my daughter, Emily, and her fiance, Jon, wanted it to be and recognizing that it is just a brief few hours that flashes by in what seems like seconds. So while we cannot slow that magical time down it is imperative to find a photographer to capture the moments that will last a lifetime. Obviously this is a huge expectation and requirement to place on any photographer but you have to meet Megan. I knew when I saw Emily and Jon's engagement pictures that Megan was extraordinarily talented, an unbelievable eye for capturing the essence of this beautiful couple while creating a composition that truly enhanced each and every photo. Emily and Jon's wedding was at our home and when Megan arrived prior to the wedding I believe her fantastic creativity started well before she entered our driveway. Megan introduced herself to me and I was immediately struck by her personality, energy and professionalism. I knew straight away that she was no ordinary photographer but a true artist and I could simply relax and let Megan do what she does best. I have spent alot of time around artistically gifted people but just watching Megan was awe inspiring. Megan seemed to instinctively know what areas, items, photographs and most importantly the people that were so important to this couple's wedding day. We received the wedding photos yesterday and I cannot put adequately into words how beautiful, creative and beyond all comprehension of what a wedding photo can convey. Beyond magnificent but I promise you the most stunning photographs I have ever seen. Megan did not miss a moment, each frame was perfectly composed and so naturally breathtaking. How Megan accomplished this frame after frame is nothing short of artistic genius. We are obsessed with looking at this amazing portfolio, feel forever grateful and excited to have it but the selection process is going to be challenging since we want them all!!!!!
Let me start this review with a short story: Megan shot an engagement photo shoot for my fiancé and I and posted the shoot on her blog. Along with the amazing photos, she wrote a paragraph detailing Mike and me as a couple, some of the things she learned about our relationship throughout the day, and then she listed the favorite things about us that she observed as the three of us spent the afternoon together. When my mother, who I chat with almost every day, read the paragraph, she said “Wow, I think Megan knows more about your relationship than I do!” What this story tells me is that Megan genuinely cares about her clients and has a fantastic capability to capture and to detail their love stories in beautiful, appealing ways. Through her artistry, she invites guests to share in these stories intimately rather than have them feel like they’re distant observers.
From the beginning of the wedding photography process until now, Megan continues to demonstrate her care and concern for her bride and groom. Megan insisted that, if it was at all possible, she shoot our engagement session – she wanted to know us as a couple and work with us before the wedding so that we would be comfortable with her shooting the wedding day photos. When the wedding day arrived, Megan knew how Mike and I related to each other and, needless to say, the photos are breathtaking. She also coordinated with me a few times before the wedding to make sure that she was planning to capture the wedding exactly as we envisioned. Since the wedding, she’s worked diligently on uploading the proofs, which were ready in 1-2 months vice 4-6 months for a larger photography studio. Her consistent timeliness is a quality I find admirable.
As a side note, Mike and I married at a destination location. Megan performed advance research on the location, contacted the catering manager to get the details on the best photo opportunities around the resort, and arrived a day early to familiarize herself with the staff and the resort. I thought this was all amazing effort on her part to make sure that she was intimately familiar with the setting and how her equipment would perform. I think the review already captures that her photos were absolutely perfect throughout the day.
It’s been four months since the wedding, and our guests are still reviewing the photos, ordering them, and gushing about the amazing quality. Beyond the quality of the photos, though, they’re also gushing about the quality of person Megan is. I heard more than one wedding guest tell me how friendly and personable they found Megan to be, and how infectious they thought her joy for life to be. They said to me, “She seemed to be having so much fun; it was like she was a wedding guest herself!” Indeed, Megan’s passion for what she does shines through in her “capture all of life” attitude and her artistic eye for what photo shot will preserve the feeling of a moment. Megan puts her heart into taking breathtakingly gorgeous photos for your life events, and infuses those photos with her beautiful spirit. I found a wonderful wedding photographer, yes, but I also found a wonderful friend.
I’ll begin this review by saying that I don’t even WANT to imagine throwing a wedding without having Megan involved! More about that later… The bottom line here is that her photos are simply stunning. She is outrageously talented, has an amazing eye and impeccable artistic vision. Megan also has an uncanny ability to understand the unique dynamic and special relationship between two people, and express it beautifully in her photographs. My wedding was the best day I could have ever imagined, and Megan was no small part in creating that. I cannot recommend her enough.
When I first saw Megan’s photography my breath was taken away—both me and my now husband (who is a cinematographer) knew that she was our very first choice of wedding photographer. I contacted Megan about ten months before our wedding, and we had some serious planning and phone discussions about the look of the wedding and our vision for the whole event. I had a large wedding at an estate house in New Hampshire, but I was planning it from New York City, and Megan’s expertise and experience really helped me envision the whole event from afar. She is a true professional, and guided us through so many wedding planning mysteries. (Of which there were oh so many!)
A few months before our wedding Megan came to New York to take our engagement photos, and both me and my husband think of this as the first wonderful event of our wedding. Megan was so positive and professional, and seemed to “get” us almost instantly. (She gave me wardrobe recommendations—including advising what belt to wear!— and then guided us through Prospect Park and Dumbo, our favorite spots in the city.) This day not only gave us a taste of what the wedding day work would be like, but also made us LOVE her. It may sound silly, but my husband and I remember her sitting in the back of the car, reassuring us that the choice of flowers and suit color for the groomsmen would look great and both feeling much more secure! She is the sweetest and smartest lady, and we just wanted to spend more time with her.
Now on to the wedding day. Megan worked closely with our wedding planner so that the photography and events all went off without a hitch. Everyone tells you “something will go wrong at your wedding, be prepared for it.” My husband and I were shocked afterwards: every moment of the day went so well, and I know that Megan’s expertise was imperative to this happening! It may seem like I’m gushing, but that’s because the whole experience of working with Megan was better than we could have imagined. And I feel that I gained a friend! Working with her was nothing short of a wonderful experience. The images that Megan took captured perfectly the beauty of the setting and the true joy that my husband and I, and our families and friends felt. She's a true artist, and I feel honored to have had her photograph us. If you want to have the most beautiful and meaningful photos from your wedding, go with Megan Braemore!
Finding all of the right words to thank Megan for her exquisite work and involvement in our wedding has been challenging because it is hard to do her justice in just a few sentences. I knew that Megan would produce fantastic and beautiful images – her work speaks for itself, and I was blown away by her eye and her angles when I first looked at her work on her website. What I am most grateful for is how fantastically wonderful she was to work with. I couldn't have imagined anyone else there to spend my wedding day with me – Megan was calm and supportive, she made me feel relaxed and assured that everything was just how it should be. On the day when I was able to hand select those most close and important to me to surround me as I got ready, it can be hard to think of a stranger being involved to capture pictures of the event. But having Megan there was like having a friend with me every step of the way. And that is more meaningful to me than anything.
It has also been the most wonderful feeling to have friends and family look at our wedding pictures, and all rave about how well Megan captured “us” in all of the images. I had a gut feeling about Megan the first time we spoke, and she went beyond any expectations that my husband and I had for a wedding photographer - by leaps and bounds.
She is an enormous talent and simply a joy to know and work with.
From the moment we began planning our wedding, my husband and I knew that finding the best photographer was our top priority. Beyond the flowers, the cake, the DJ, etc., we knew that the day would fly by and that having those beautiful photographs to remember the day would be something we would always treasure. When looking for a wedding photographer, I wanted someone who could capture the small moments of the day with creativity and artistry. I wanted someone who understood light and Megan is a master at this! When I saw Megan’s work for the first time I was struck by the natural beauty of it. She has a mind like a talented artist and she works passionately to create images that are timeless and stunning. After speaking with Megan and discovering how much invested she feels in her clients and their love stories, I knew she would make our wedding day perfect.
Megan made the entire planning process a breeze and on the day of our wedding, she was the calm presence that every bride needs. She literally thought of everything! After our first look, I feel like I didn’t even know she was there photographing us, as she blended in with the guests seamlessly. As predicted, our wedding day did FLY by way too fast, but the day that we received our wedding photos we got to relive it all over again! My husband and I sat on the couch with tears streaming down our eyes looking at the stunning pieces of art Megan created! She captured the day, but even more than that, she captured the emotions, the feelings and the love! She photographed real moments, some of which I didn’t know occurred until seeing the photographs. I recommend Megan Braemore Photography to any bride and groom who is looking to capture their wedding day in a way that is not posed or formal, but that reflects the beauty and love of the day!
From the first interaction, Megan has been a dream to work with and someone that I leaned on throughout the whole wedding planning process. I remember connecting with Megan on the phone for an initial chat to get to know each other. When I hung up the phone, I called Jay, my husband, to update him. From the excitement in my voice all he said was, “so you found our photographer.” Megan had spent almost an hour on the phone getting to know me first as a person and then getting to know Jay and I as a couple. Megan genuinely cared about getting to know our love story.
From that initial conversation through the wedding day, Megan has perfectly balanced being a warm professional. Megan is one of the most kind-hearted people I have ever met. From the beginning, she instantly made me feel comfortable and at ease. Throughout our engagement, Megan not only worked with Jay and I to create a vision for our wedding day but also made time to answer any wedding related questions that randomly popped up throughout our engagement. Megan was a calming force when I was debating color choices for bridesmaids dresses and the accompanying men’s suits.
Megan’s photos are absolutely stunning. She has extraordinary vision for capturing the true beauty of the day. As luck would have it, the day of our wedding a hurricane ended up hitting at the exact time of our planned outdoor ceremony. We had to move to plan b. Megan had already called me the day prior and discussed the backup plan and reassured me that the day would still be beautiful. The day of the wedding, Megan arrived at the location where I was getting ready and she took over with her calm and warm demeanor. Due to the storm, we had to change our pre-determined location for wedding party photos. Megan coordinated with our contact at our venue to select a new location for photos. With doors closed tight and a storm outside, this was not an easy feat to maneuver since the space became more limited. Megan navigated these changes and the whole evening with grace and confidence. She continued to check in and was incredibly reassuring to Jay and I as well as our parents and wedding party. Megan truly helped run our wedding day and she calmly and beautifully captured our dream day. Our photos are incredible. Megan used natural lighting to create some photos that have a soft glow that made my jaw drop when I saw them. She spent time capturing details that were important to us and she used the venue space in a beautiful way. Overall, our photos captured our love for one another and the joy of our day.
I truly had a wonderful experience working with Megan. I whole-heartedly recommend her. She is an incredible artist and an even more amazing person and I am lucky to have worked with her.
Megan puts her absolute all into her clients from the moment you speak to her on the phone. We fell in love with Megan’s photography from the minute we saw her work, and after talking to her knew that she was the perfect fit for us. She made everything so much easier with her sweet and sassy attitude, and put our minds at ease. It was so important to us for our wedding photos to be different, and capture those special moments candidly. She made us feel so comfortable, and felt as if she has been a friend of ours for a long time. I appreciated Megan's attention to every detail and she really was able to capture the beauty of our day, our story and all the little details along the way. Megan truly found the essence of relationship and captured it in photos for us to cherish forever. Our pictures are so special to us, we can never fully express how grateful we are to Megan for the photos and when we look through the photos we feel all the same emotions of that dream day. Megan is truly a rare and special talent, that I recommend to every bride I meet. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We will always treasure our wedding memories thanks to you.
I have been looking forward to reviewing Megan's work since I met her - I just knew we would be would be thrilled with our experience and photos since our initial meeting. When we first started planning our wedding, I was surprised at how finicky I was being about the photography. There was a certain style, personality and professionalism that I was looking for in our photographer. And although I met with a few very talented photographers, it was not until I met Megan that I found exactly who I was looking for.
Megan has a gorgeous style and is extremely talented at finding the most beautiful natural light making for amazing photos. Our photos are more beautiful than I imagined - we couldn't be happier with how they turned out!
In addition to her amazing photography, Megan is a very genuine and sweet person with the innate ability to put everyone at ease. She gives instruction in a direct but very calm and pleasant manner which can be extremely helpful with large wedding parties and families! She pulled my husband and I away for some sunset photos, and although I thought we'd feel silly trying to be all romantic in front of the camera and any guests sneaking a peek, Megan made us feel totally comfortable and relaxed. We really enjoyed that time to ourselves and Megan captured the moments beautifully, obviously :)
I have recommended Megan to friends who are currently engaged and would recommend her to strangers on the street or internet :) I cannot say enough amazing things about her and am very grateful to her for capturing our day so perfectly!
Megan puts her heart and soul into her work and its so inspiring to see such dedication and passion. From the moment we saw Megan's work and spoke with her, we knew she was the perfect fit for us. She is the sweetest person ever and we immediately knew we could trust her to document our day, stress-free! She was by far our favorite vendor and so much fun to be around! Her peaceful and soft nature just brought us to a place of ease. That is exactly how Megan made the whole process feel...easy! While photographing us, she made everything natural and fun-no forced poses, just captured us as we are. She quickly became more than our photographer and now I am proud to call her a friend. I appreciated Megan's attention to every detail and she really was able to capture the beauty of our day, our love story and all the little details along the way. Megan had an uncanny ability to capture the essence of who we are individually and as a couple. She told our love story with genuine interest and joy. Our pictures are unique to us and that makes them so much more special. I can never fully express how grateful we are to Megan for the exquisite photos and genuine friendship we created. When we look through the photos we feel all the same emotions of that day. Megan, your talent is a rare and truly special gift! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. we will always treasure our wedding thanks to you!
I first discovered Megan by pouring over the amazing collection of photos on her website when I was interested in learning more about the photography business. She was kind enough to meet for coffee and a friendship blossomed from there! Less than a year later when I got engaged and knew I was planning a destination wedding, I told my husband there was no way anyone but Megan was going to photograph the day. I knew too much about the quality of her work to be happy with anyone else at that point!
I worked with Megan as an assistant on a few occasions before hiring for our wedding and therefore knew our big day couldn’t have been in better hands. In addition to her creative talent, she’s the epitome of a true professional and is genuinely passionate about every couple’s experience and creating the best product for them.
In the madness of a crazy day, she did an amazing job going about her work unnoticed when appropriate, corralling families and bridal party when needed, and scouting out the best locations for those iconic shots you dream of capturing. The photos from our wedding couldn’t have been more perfect and a year later I still look at them in awe on a weekly basis. I know we have shots in our collection that no one else could have spotted or created. In addition, she treats witnessing special moments with such sensitivity and respect, something I think other photographers forget about when trying to get the job done.
I know not everyone feels as strongly about investing in high-quality photography for their wedding but working with Megan is worth every cent. She is a delight to work with, honestly passionate about sharing in your day and has an amazing eye that can’t be replicated.
Before I was even engaged I had picked out Megan to be my wedding photographer. I fell in love with her work from a random Facebook post and my now husband and I fell in love with her upon meeting her. Megan is the nicest person you could ever hope to meet and work with. It's not easy to pose and show your love in front of a stranger, but before we knew it, Megan had us at ease, holding hands and forgetting we were being photographed. She makes you feel at ease and not silly when others stop and stare during your session because there is no one else but you and her. Her pictures are gorgeous and capture everything you would expect to see in a magazine spread trying to sell a romantic getaway, but real. Picking Megan was the easiest choice I made for my wedding. I emailed her A LOT and she took them in stride, never making me feel like I was asking too many or silly questions. When prioritizing expenses for the wedding, I didn't care how much Megan would charge because I was so confident in her work. I've only seen the sneak peeks from my wedding, but based on those and the experience we and our guests had with her, it was money well spent. Pick Megan not only for the beautiful photographs, but also the beautiful experience she will create at your wedding.
I recently received my photo album and it is absolutely beautiful! Megan did an amazing job- the photos are fabulous, and the album is gorgeous! I have received so many comments from friends and family about how awesome the album is and how talented my photographer was.
Working with Megan was great! She made me feel comfortable and at ease from our first conversation on the phone. The helpful guides and info that Megan shared helped make my wedding day a breeze and stress free!
Megan's work is amazing and her passion is as well!
Megan is a true artist I am so happy we had her capture our wedding day. If you ever had nerves about being in front of a camera then fear no more! Megan becomes your instant best friend throughout the process and you feel so comfortable getting photographed. The best part is that she makes the entire experience fun! We did our engagement photos with her as well and both those and our wedding photos are dreamy! She had this way of capturing truly special moments that you don't even realize she's getting because you drift away in the moment. She finds these hidden pockets of light that make your photos so romantic and stunning!
Megan was the first and only photographer we met during our engagement, and we couldn't have asked for more. Her love for love is contagious and is reflected in each and every gorgeous photo she captures. She is truly a gem. From the moment we met Megan, a self-proclaimed "hugger," she was a dream to work with. To this day my husband and I joke that we wish we could carry Megan around in our pocket to photograph the rest of our life together. Beyond being one of the sweetest, caring people I've ever met, Megan is a true professional with an amazing gift. Her eye for detail and ability to capture the personality and emotion of the day is extraordinary. Love, love, love.
I had not worked with Megan before selecting her to photograph my wedding, but was excited by her portfolio of work. I am a wedding planner and so am extremely particular about fine detail, and was very impressed with the way Megan's photography both captured the unique style of each of her subject couples, but also showed a consistent artistry - lots of sunbursts, close embraces and interesting backdrops.
Megan was very easy to work with starting from our first meeting - accommodative of my schedule, highly professional and very attentive, going so far as to reach out proactively to us to keep moving the schedule forward when I was swamped with other details. Refreshing, to say the least, and planning would have been a breeze if all of our vendors were as timely and professional.
Our package included an engagement session (place of our choosing), rehearsal and 10 hours of wedding day coverage with a second shooter, along with 2 parent albums, guest book and wedding album. We were extremely happy with the value.
As for the actual photographs, I was not disappointed - Megan did an amazing job capturing the key moments and surprising us with candid angles and vignettes we weren't expecting. Megan does a great job making her subjects feel comfortable with her style of shooting, and my husband and I had lots of fun. Because of her easy-going attitude balanced with an incredibly efficient professional attitude Megan would be a great fit for any couple!
Megan has definitely turned into more than just a photographer for me. I am proud to call her a great friend even though the wedding is over. She is absolutely adorable and one of the nicest people I have ever met! She made such a great impression with my entire family that my cousin decided to book her for his wedding and the rest of my family is trying to make up reasons to hire her! My husband and I can't wait to find another reason to have another photo shoot with Megan!
As a parting note I would just like to say thank you SO much to Megan for making my wedding day even more special than I could have possibly imagined! And if you are a couple looking to book a photographer, I would stop reading this review and book Megan as soon as possible!
That's the word that comes to mind when I think of Megan. I knew that in order for me to be able to relax and enjoy my wedding I was going to have to find vendors that I could trust with the little things I couldn't control. I had a "vision" or a feeling of how I wanted my wedding pictures to be and just hoped that it was possible.
I'm so happy I found Megan! Sprigs of lavender, sweet notes, brown paper packages tied up with string...these are a few of my favorite things! It's obvious that she sees the world through a different lens. Her professionalism and eye for detail goes far beyond the photographs she takes.
Although it felt awkward at first, I'm glad we did the engagement session with Megan as well. It allowed us to become comfortable in front of the camera and allowed us to become comfortable with Megan. It was important for her to know who we were and what made us tick. It felt good to know that she understood us better and knew how to put us at ease for the big day.
She patiently went through every detail with me about how the big day should run. On wedding day I just let her run the show (What? Me give up control??) and I knew I could trust her to see even more beauty than I could. I found myself not worrying a bit because I knew I was in good hands.
Scrolling through my proofs just makes my heart smile! She did it! My dreams have come true! This was my vision! I had such a wonderful day, I enjoyed every minute and her pictures reflect that.
Its hard to put into words how I feel about Megan Dandeles--she is a true professional, a stellar artist, and an incredibly caring, wonderful person. I searched a good number of wedding photographers before finding Megan, and there was just something about her photos that made them special. I continued my search but always came back to her site--her mixture of details and candid but intimate moments is captured so beautifully in her photography. A call with her on the phone sealed the deal. I had to have her be my photographer! We just clicked instantly and I could tell I didn't have to explain anything about what I wanted; Megan just understood and totally got what I wanted. And if you aren't sold by her personality, the proof is in the pudding with her photos. I can't tell you how many people have gawked over my engagement pictures! My fiance and I admittedly were incredibly nervous about the shoot, because we do NOT consider ourselves to be photogenic by any means. Megan made us feel instantly comfortable and you can tell from our pictures! She is completely dedicated to her clients and my satisfaction is her number one priority. Due to an unfortunate experience with trying to obtain a studio space, there was a bit of a delay in getting our photos back to us. She made it up to us ten-fold by sending several prints to us for free, and in the overall quality of her work. Totally worth the wait!! And speaking of, we cannot WAIT to work with her again for our wedding. She is absolutely our forever photographer, and friend!! :)
Megan was an absolute dream to work with! She's super sweet and extremely professional. She knew how to make my husband and I feel comfortable in front of the camera during our engagement pictures, which gave us that much more confidence on our wedding day. I must add how talented Megan is, her work is magazine worthy! I am extremely picky and I was so thrilled with our engagement pictures, we even purchased a gorgeous guest book through her for our wedding. We've only seen 2 sneak peeks from our wedding day and we LOVE them, can't wait to see the rest! Thank you, thank you, thank you Megan! If you're in search of a photographer we can guarantee you will not be disappointed!
I am a makeup artist in the wedding business and have recently connected and worked with Megan. I did hair and makeup for a Boudoir Party she threw for some of her brides. It's difficult to have women feel comfortable and beautiful in most situations but in this setting especially. She knew what to say and how to pose her clients in a way that made them look spectacular and feel amazing. Her shining personality knew how to connect with her bride and made them shine. I felt comfortable and appreciate by her as well. Her pictures all came out stunning. I couldn't say enough about Megan as a photographer and recommend her to my brides regularly
