About this Vendor

Your day: stirred, not shaken

During events and portraits, Newsom captures a seemly realistic surreal quality in her photographs. Photos are real and believable, yet carry a lightness. A lightness twirling in a pretty dress, a comfy sweatshirt or a buzz after just the right amount of vodka. The experiences of her subjects are often the same, a wedding or gathering or a moment between lovers is elevated, light and dreamy. The other overwhelming experience is how effortless and seamless sessions with newsom feel. Before you know it, you’re relaxed, the shutter is snapping but you still feel comfy. The layer of effortlessness that Meghan was wearing has now been draped across your shoulders as well and you don’t need to do much. In fact, this is all so natural, you might just think you were born to be a model.

We were so blessed to have Meghan with us on our wedding day. What a lovely experience. She is so calming and personable, and makes it easy to feel comfortable and relaxed while she shoots. When you hire Meghan, not only will the experience result in effortlessly beautiful... Read More photos, it's delivery will be by someone who is truly a joy to be around. Meghan is a beautiful and selfless soul, which was clear only moments after meeting her. My husband and I were overwhelmed by her unfailing effort and dedication on our wedding day. She was bound and determined to give it everything she had to deliver an exceptional performance in a timely manner. Despite the demands of time and weather conditions, she made it all happen! She captured both unique and unexpectedly memorable moments, which is what you hope for from a wedding photographer. In addition, we are so impressed with her style and use of color- everything turned out beautifully. Her love and labor is genuine and true, and it's overwhelmingly evident in her product. We will definitely be hiring her again!

Meghan is amazing. Throughout the entire process she was professional, prompt, communicative, and incredibly kind. When my husband and I were posing for our pictures together, she did a wonderful job of making him feel more at ease with the process. Our whole wedding party had... Read More only kind things to say about both Meghan and her assistant. She captured beautiful images for the entire night without being the least bit intrusive. She and her assistant blended in seamlessly while adding so much love and positive energy to our wedding. It only took her a few weeks to get the images to us and they were SO PERFECT. If we lived closer I would hire her for everything!!!!

We had Meghan shoot our engagement session in New York City. My fiance and I had never done a photoshoot together, so we were worried about it being awkward. BUT Meghan was TOTALLY THE BEST at making the whole experience super natural and put us right at ease. She chatted with...

Ok long story short - WE LOVE MEGHAN and you need her in your life for any occasion that needs to be documented! Meghan is truly a gifted photographer but more importantly a genuine and amazing person to be around! Her photoshoot style is effortless. She makes you feel so at... Read More ease. No awkward poses, but also takes into consideration what you are self conscious about and will help you! We first hired her for our engagement photos - and I was SO against beach pictures, I had terrible visions of all white outfits, cheesy poses, squinty eyes, etc. Meghan told me to trust her and THANK GOD I did. We took our pictures at golden hour on Tybee island and they turned out phenomenal. Our wedding - which was supposed to be in Savannah - had to be relocated to Atlanta TWO days before... Meghan didn't even hesitate to be there and worked her booty off at our wedding, and it shows in the gorgeous pictures. THANK YOU LOVE<3

We chose Meghan out of 3 photographers for our wedding because she was recommended by a friend, the kind of photos she had on her website, and because she made quite the impression on us when we met with her. After our initial meeting at a small cafe in Huntsville, Meghan did... Read More an engagement shoot with us in the fall colors. Meghan came very prepared to the shoot, used different props and settings, and took numerous shots of us walking around the lake. She paid attention to the little things, was detailed oriented, and took pride in her work. You could see the passion she has for work in all the shots she takes. We got the pictures from her within a week. As for the wedding day, Meghan took over 3,000 pictures. Even though our contract was for 6 hours, Meghan and Bonnie(her assistant) stayed for the entire wedding. She made our wedding a huge success not just of because of her professionalism, attention to detail, knowledge, and experience but because she was more than just a photographer; she was a planner, organizer, seamstress and friend. We could not thank her enough for capturing our day more perfectly!

Meghan made our wedding day so special and relaxed. She has a magic quality about her that allows her to capture the moments I never would have thought to request from a photographer. Instead of being left with all posed shots (we got some of those too!), she was able to convey...

I was nervous we would have to wait for months before reliving the moments of our day but Meghan delivered our photos quickly.

With a joyful spring in her step and an understanding of the emotion, hard work and nervous energy that accumulate during a wedding, Meghan lightened everyone's mood, made distant family members comfortable in front of the camera and seamlessly integrated herself in our day. I am so pleased with the memories she helped us to make and so excited to flip through our portraits for years to come.
