Destination Engagement shoot with Megan Braemore in NYC and Brooklyn! Highly recommend this photographer!Reviewed on 1/19/2016 Daniela
Michelino and I are out of words to say "thanks" to Megan Braemore because thank you does not seem enough for the pictures she capturing during our destination engagement shoot in New York City and Brooklyn. Our experience working with Megan was a top notch, memorable, 5 star experience. Her photography skills and passion for what she captures is truly and art and we both highly recommend her for a number of reasons. She sees your vision and makes every effort to make it come to life. Megan made helpful suggestions for our engagement shoot based on what she gathered from our love story. She listened and captured what was sonimportant to us as a couple making it all about US and not about what she wanted to shoot. This is how she differs from so many photographers out there, she sees the big picture, strives to make the couple beyond happy. We are still filled with emotions from what she captured from our engagement shoot. To sum it up best, she captured "US" and what Michelino and I are all about. She's a gem. Working with Megan was nothing short of a memorable and special experience, from her calmness and sense of peace to her positive spirit filed with joy, we loved each moment of the experience. We now have photographs that capture the essence of our love story, and had such a fun time during the shoot. She makes it all about you as the couple. Megan's eagerness to learn about our Love Story made us feel soooo special and as if we were her #1 priority even during a destination engagement shoot. Megan's ability to catch each and every romantic and charming detail along our shoot represented the detail in who Michelino and are as a couple. She made everything seem so easy and seamless and she didn't miss a beat! She has the ability to make her clients feel so important. Her epic photography skills and ability to capture natural light on the Brooklyn Bridge couldn't have been more perfect as she timed it perfectly for a vibrant, piercing red orange sunset reflecting off the skyline of NYC in the backdrop of our photos. This was inspiration Megan had discussed previously with us (a sunset on the Brooklyn Bridge in the background) but it was more than Michelino and I ever imagined as the photos made it all come to life. She makes you feel like gold. She also allowed us to be ourselves, which was so important to us and it made the photos as "real" as possible. As a newly engaged couple, she made us feel at our center, our "happy," "our peaceful zen" in NYC with over 8.4 million people, we felt on cloud 9 and in our own bubble the entire time. To us this was beyond special and it created such a memory for us. We went through the photos just this week and relived each one - isn't that what photos are supposed to make us do? She'll get it right. If you're looking for an experience of a lifetime and looking to not only get some of the best photos of your life by also meet a photographer who will listen and work together with you and your vision, Megan is your gal!
Beautiful work, beautiful personReviewed on 12/12/2015
Working with Megan was by far the best decision my husband and I made. It was important to us to find a photographer who could capture our story and to no surprise, we fell in love with Megan's work from the moment we saw it. Her photography style is classic, pure, and organic. She shoots with natural light and captures candid, stunning images that make you fall in love all over again. Her work speaks for itself. Megan shot not only our wedding photos, but our engagement session as well. After meeting with her for the first time, it was clear to us that her personality is just as beautiful as her photography. Throughout the planning process up until the day of our wedding, she was always one step ahead and made everything easy. She offered her expertise and was there for us the entire time – both as a photographer and friend. You see, Megan captures special moments, not photos – and she does so brilliantly. She is incredibly talented, creative, and personally one of the sweetest souls we have ever met. Megan is truly an artist. Words cannot express how thankful we are at the end result. As I told her at our wedding, “You’re my forever photographer." She captured memories that we will cherish a lifetime.
The Best of the BestReviewed on 11/09/2015
Our experience with Megan was truly special and I cannot recommend her enough for engagement or wedding photography. She put us at ease straight away and made us feel comfortable to be ourselves throughout the whole shoot. Megan was able to capture the essence of our relationship and love in all of her pictures. Looking at them afterwards made me cry because I knew I was looking at our unique love and spirit, not uncomfortable or generic shots. She is a true artist and her eye for this work is impeccable. Thank you so much, Megan! I cannot wait to share these beautiful moments with friends and family for many years to come.
Choosing my photographer was a very delicate task for me - I was a photography minor in undergrad and had very high expectations. Megan shattered every single one. From my international engagement shoot, to my international wedding, and local reception, Megan was my confidant, my guide, and my friend through every moment. As someone who is much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it, Megan made me feel beautiful and photogenic. When the photos came to us, my mom and I sat there in awe. I spread them out to the wedding party and immediately got floods of texts of how they were so fantastic they all cried. Every moment was captured, every emotion felt was portrayed. I would have my wedding another three times to go through the experience with Megan again.
Simply AmazingReviewed on 9/14/2015
Megan is simply a joy to work with. My fiancé and I planned our wedding over a year and a half, and didn't have a wedding planner. Megan was there every step of the way with answers, love and support for us whenever we needed it. The communication was seamless. Our wedding day was perfect. No stress, first looks were absolutely gorgeous. She has an eye for perfection, and it shows in her work. I have not one single complaint. The absolute best photographer you can ask for. I will and would recommend her to anyone! (Her assistant on our wedding day was very helpful as well!)
A True ArtistReviewed on 8/19/2015 Hannah A
My daughter (and her fiance/husband) selected Megan as their wedding photographer. What a dream the experience with Megan has been. Megan shot photos not only for our destination wedding in Italy, but also for my daughter's engagement announcement and a reception at home. We found Megan to be: professional and punctual; flawless in developing and managing a schedule of photos, while also capturing the unplanned moments; organized with an artistic eye, and thoughtfully artful; respectful of our vision while presenting all the options; a delightful person with a winning smile; and last but not least, an all round amazing person. If this sounds a bit over the top, I do not apologize. Finding such a professional as Megan allowed me to relax in the knowledge that our special days would be appropriately documented - with the essence of the moment, and the magic of the day. I did not rate 'Value' with stars. I have no comparison for cost, but if value is defined by 'the days' experience' and the finished product, then my rating is five stars. Megan's personality and professionalism were mentioned often by our guests and wedding facilitators (venue, caterers, etc.).
Great PhotographerReviewed on 8/04/2015 Anne S
Megan was excellent!! We loved working with her. Not only did she take absolutely beautiful photos but she was helpful and organized. She was responsive when I had questions about anything and everything and she helped me think through some of the details about the wedding day that I had not really focused on. She was also a lot of fun and a joy to be around!
Megan was absolutely amazing! I can not say enough about the great experience I had with her for both engagement and wedding photos. Megan takes the time to get to know you with several phone conversations as well as questionnaires, by the end your old friends and she knows how you will feel most comfortable on your wedding day. During our engagement photos she came over early to help us pick out outfits that would work best for the photos. VERY helpful! For the day of she learned the schedule of the activities planned and kept everything on time and perfect. Even my limo driver the day of told me how great she was! The thing that really separates her from any of the other photographers in weddings I have been in is that she lets your day happen organically. All the great "candid" shots you have to usually stop and pose for pre wedding she just has an eye for detail and catches them naturally. Her eye for detail is really incredible and shows throughout the amazing wedding book she puts together for you. The quality of the book is beautiful and it is also great that you get all of your negatives. Megan goes above and beyond any expectations you could possibly have for your wedding day. I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants great wedding pictures and a smooth day she is simply the best.
Megan is absolutely amazing!!! (long review, but worth the read)Reviewed on 7/15/2015 Nicole B
I clicked with Megan from our very first phone call; she was so personable and sweet. Our first meeting at her studio started with “hello” and a hug and by the end of the day we were like old friends poring over her portfolio of wedding albums, laughing, and sharing recipes. This speaks volumes to the kind of person Megan is. She truly cares about each of her clients and is devoted from beginning to end. Our package included an engagement session and I wanted photos taken during peak foliage. Megan researched the best dates to make this happen (she goes above & beyond at all times) and sent helpful tips & a questionnaire ahead of time to get to know us better, which was really great. Despite the fact that we had to reschedule a few times due to inclement weather, Megan was calm, reassuring, & always accommodating. We went to a state park close to our home and that was when I got to see her work her magic. She has serious vision and although we were nervous (my now husband is extremely shy & does not like his photo taken) we trusted her and she did not disappoint. We were in the most unlikely place (right next to a parking lot) but you would never be able to tell from the finished photos. Megan finds the right spot, makes it work, and you forget everything else going on around you. She was really helpful in guiding us to pose/connect with one another and it definitely comes across in the images. We look like our true selves; so happy and in love – you’d never tell my husband is shy! By the end he had opened up & was having a great time. That in itself is a huge accomplishment! I still look through the photos and can’t help but smile at the good times & laughs the 3 of us shared. Megan & I stayed in touch; she was always there to answer a Q, provide insight, or put my mind at ease. As the big day approached she had me fill out another detailed questionnaire, provided more tips (she thinks of absolutely everything), and developed a wedding day timeline. This was invaluable! Her timeline served as the guide for everything else that day and it all went without a hitch. The day of our wedding, Megan & her 2nd shooter (Tara – also super sweet & awesome) seemed to be everywhere at once – not one angle was uncaptured and I was able to relive so many special moments that I missed in the hustle and bustle. She took control when necessary, ensured everything ran smoothly & on time, and coordinated with my other vendors to make sure everyone was on the same page/schedule. We were in such good hands! She stole us out of the reception at sunset to capture some romantic shots and everyone is dazzled when they see them. Our venue’s wedding coordinator can’t wait to see them and has already asked if she can have some for their website! One of the most special moments we shared was when Megan first arrived at my hotel room to start shooting me getting ready. She walked in the door, gave me a big hug, and we both choked up. She had just photographed my husband and his father getting ready together and was so moved by the occasion she had tears in her eyes. She told me how beautiful everything was and how happy she was to share it with us. This really struck me. How many people do you witness get that invested in their work? Megan is an absolute gem, and one of the most passionate and talented people I have ever met. I am honored that I had the opportunity to work with her and would recommend her in a heartbeat. Thank you Megan, from the bottom of my heart.
The bride whispererReviewed on 6/10/2015
Megan Braemore should be a therapist. Or a cheerleader. Or a professional best friend. When I stepped out of the hotel on my wedding day and into my portrait session, my heel tore a hole right through the tulle on my skirt. I yelled and swore blue murder until Megan took me by the shoulders, looked me in the eye, and talked me down. For the rest of the day, whenever anything went wrong, I knew that Megan had my back and I could relax. And aside from being a wonderful person, she is an exceptional photographer. I have never been a person who takes "nice" photos. I take silly photos so I can hide my insecurities. But Megan made me feel beautiful on my wedding day, and look beautiful in the pictures she took. I will always be grateful for her.
Perfect photographerReviewed on 12/30/2014 Kerianne S
Megan photographed our intimate at home wedding and was perfect! With such a small group I knew it would be hard to "ignor" the flashing of the camera but boy was I wrong... Megan was so warm and kind, she fit right into our family and took pictures that took our breath away!! Megan's beautiful imagery made our home look like our ceremony was held in an actual venue not our living room (rain forced us inside and we had to plan b) she was soo flexible and great to plan with. Megan had great ideas we never thought of for helping our day ease along the way a big wedding would do naturally. Megan sees beauty behind her lens and it shows in every picture, she was perfectly priced and very professional, I (and my husband) would recommend Megan to anyone and everyone looking for a photographer!!
Artistic, Professional, IndispensableReviewed on 12/25/2014 Alison F
Megan truly went above and beyond in her duties as our wedding photographer. From the first phone conversation, I knew she was "the one!" Her artistic energy and style is unmatched in the Boston area, and her effortless ability to act as stage director during the big day made her indispensable. Not only does Megan capture breathtaking and natural photos, but she also keeps your planning process and wedding day on track, organized, and stress free, without you even realizing it! I am happy to call Megan not only our favorite and most trusted vendor, but also, a new friend. I would highly recommend Megan and her team to any couple wishing to work with a true artistic professional. Thank you Megan! ~ Ali & Eric
Megan Braemore Photography- more than just a photographer an experienceReviewed on 12/10/2014 Jeanette P
It is truly hard to encapsulate my deep respect, appreciation and love for Megan Braemore and her beyond beautiful work. Our journey started early before I ever even personally met Megan, when I had seen her photographs from a friends wedding that I attended a few years prior that she had taken. I was blown away by the images she produced and knew that I needed to learn more. Megan and I eventually connected for our first phone conversation- our slated time was supposed to be about an hour. However, we ended up spending close to two hours talking about what type of photographer she was and the sort of approach she has to her work and to her clients and how she handles each and every one of her couples differently. More than that, our conversation developed into a deeper discussion about life and what we are passionate about and the people and things we cherish most. I quickly realized almost two hours later when we were getting off the phone that it felt like the whole time, I had known this person for many years and that although I had not, I knew we would be friends, dear friends for many more. I also knew that I had just found my photographer and I had to do whatever it took to to make sure she was part of our experience. She played such an integral part of our wedding journey. From our bi-monthly meet ups for cocktails and conversation to bringing us to the most beautiful and romantic setting to shoot our engagement photos. There, she made us feel so comfortable and at ease it was like our own private celebration where the world had stopped just for those few hours and it was only me and my husband. I cherish her ability to do this, make the most simplest moments seem so big. Megan was also a very strong voice of reason for me at many points and I always felt like we had the rapport where I could call her for anything. Something as small as deciding on certain little details or even right down to the wire on the day of our wedding when we had to make a call on the weather. She always comes from a genuine and thoughtful place and is not afraid to tell you her honest opinion, which I very much respect and honor. And her photographs and art work, where do I even start? I am an avid art collector and have always had an affinity for contemporary art and photography. Megan's photographs are hands down some of the most beautiful work I have honestly ever seen. Her goal with her clients is to truly capture the moment and the essence of ones relationship and what love really means. It has still taken me time, weeks later to digest how stunning our wedding photos came out. Megan did the most amazing job capturing my husband and I's relationship and our wedding celebration through here imagery. She was able to encompass our entire day through her thorough attention to detail and convey that to us through her pictures. I am happy to say that because of Megan and the passion she puts in to her work always, my husband and I will be able to relive that momentous day and those once in a life time feelings through our photographs and wedding album. We owe a lot to her, not just for over delivering in the picture department but mostly for investing so much of herself into us, our experience and making sure she did everything she could to make the journey so special. We love Megan, and envy those future clients who get to live this once in a lifetime adventure with her.
Truly IncomparableReviewed on 12/08/2014 Alison E
I cannot recommend Megan with enough enthusiasm! She photographed our wedding, as well as our engagement photos, and her work is truly incomparable. She is one of the most authentic and passionate people I have ever had the honor of knowing, and it shows in the care and detail she puts into her photos. She is an absolute delight to work with and made us instantly comfortable – impressive considering neither of us particularly enjoys having our photo taken. In addition to nurturing and capturing exceptional photos, Megan was an incredible resource to us in planning our wedding. She was always available via email to answer any questions that arose and was instrumental in helping us structure our day-of schedule. On the very rainy day of our wedding, which was intended to be outside, Megan put us completely at ease and coordinated a wonderful weather plan. Our rainy day photos turned out as stunning, unique pieces of art and I know we will cherish them always. I am so grateful for Megan’s incredible ability to create art out of what some might have considered a weather disaster. Megan is truly a joy to work with and she is unquestionably an extraordinary artist and professional.
The ONLY photographer I ever want!Reviewed on 11/12/2014 Alexis F
I originally met Megan when she was the photographer for my cousin's wedding WAY back in 2010. As a bridesmaid, I had close contact with Megan and was very impressed with her caring nature, attention to detail and ability to make anyone feel, and in turn, look relaxed as she took pictures on what is for many a high stress day. Once I saw how amazing the photos from the wedding came out, I knew I had to book a personal family session with her. My family session was more than amazing, as Megan helped pick out outfits, shooting locations, and set a mood which produced work I still consider to be among my most prized possessions. Since the original family session, I've booked Megan twice more personally for family & newborn shots. Others around me also fall in love with her work, and in October my sister-in-law had Megan Braemore Photography capture her wedding day. Also a bridesmaid in this wedding, I was so happy to see that in the years since our original meeting she has the same loving soft touch, and an even more impressive arsenal of tips and techniques to make the day feel both special and relaxed. Megan is the only photographer I want to work with for the rest of my life. I'm already hoping to book with her again in the coming year, and feel blessed to have had her document my family throughout the years. If you have the opportunity to book Megan Braemore Photography, know that in addition to Pinterest worthy photos which induce goose bumps, you’ll also come away with a new friend who truly cares. I highly recommend Megan Braemore Photography for your wedding, and any other life event you are looking to document. – Alexis Forest
The Absolute Best!Reviewed on 11/03/2014 Cari H
I highly recommend Megan to any couple searching for the right wedding photographer. If you are hoping for images that capture the true feeling of your big day, images that portray more than just that one moment in time, look no further. Megan somehow manages to tell the story or your love in the most aesthetically pleasing way -- capturing all of the elements of the day in a candid fashion. As a bride who did most of the decorating for our farm wedding myself, I really appreciate that Megan paid as much attention to all the little details as I did. From the beautiful scenery of the venue, to the emotion and humor of the ceremony, to the unplanned moments that happened throughout the day. Not being huge fans of the typical "posed" wedding pictures, my husband and I are thrilled with the images Megan captured with her creative eye. And while the day was a whirlwind of activity, she was extremely organized and efficient, paying close attention to the fact that we wanted to maximize our time enjoying the day rather than posing for pictures. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Just look at her photos...they speak for themselves!
Beautiful, effortless photosReviewed on 10/13/2014 Kerri S
Megan is amazingly talented! We did a lot of research on photographers before deciding on Megan and we couldn't be happier with the pictures from our wedding. It was important to us to find a photographer who didn't just take stiff posed pictures, but instead capture the candid moments of our special day. Megan's pictures are beautiful, effortless, and were exactly what we were looking for. What's more, Megan is a fabulous person and is very easy to work with. She provides lots of tips and guidance along the way; she and the second photographer even helped my bridesmaids figure out how to get me in my dress!
Megan is absolutely fabulous!Reviewed on 10/09/2014
Megan Braemore is absolutely wonderful. My husband and I got married on November 27, 2013 at Gibbet Hill in Groton, MA and she was everything we imagined. Megan was so easy to work with before, during and after the wedding. From our first meeting we knew she was the one!!! (kind of like when I met my husband!) ha! She took the greatest shots of us on our special day. The process of choosing the photos for our album was so difficult because I could have chosen all of them for our final album. Megan is a true professional and is genuinely interested in making your day as special and romantic as you always imagined it to be. I highly recommend MEGAN DANDELES PHOTOGRAPHY. Congratulations and Best Wishes to you!
The best photographer and a new friend! :-DReviewed on 8/31/2014 Consuelo V
I can't say enough about Megan and what an amazing photographer, wedding asset, and friend she is. Truly, if you're looking for an awesome wedding experience, don't look any further :-) Below, I am going to go into crazy detail about how awesome the experience was, but in a nut shell, you can't do any better than Megan ;-) I stumbled onto Megan's amazing work when I was looking at our venue's photos. She was featured on every page so I knew I had to check her out. I read all the positive reviews about her and fell in love with all the work on her website so I put all my effort into booking her and I am so happy we did! I planned most of the wedding myself and I could not have done it without Megan's expertise and guidance. At every step of the way she was anticipating what we needed to do and every detail. Our first meeting, she was so cheerful and friendly! She promised we would be fast friends and she was right! We were so nervous because her art is stunning, so we expected to be really intimidated but Megan is so approachable and such a pleasure! On the day of our engagement shoot, my hair went horribly wrong and Megan was there to save the day with all of her genius tricks! She also put us at ease. It was amazing how comfortable my partner was with PDA while Megan was photographing! My partner is NEVER cool with PDA, but Megan made it all so perfect :-) Our wedding day, Megan was such an asset. She helped us out with this amazing questionnaire and planned out our timeline for the day so we knew exactly what to do and when. When she arrived, she looked amazing and was running around taking wonderful photos of every last detail :-) During the ceremony, she graciously dodged around my relatives and friends that almost blocked her photo taking a few times. And she felt like a true friend sharing the day with us. Looking through the photos now, I honestly don't know how she did it. She got pictures from every angle, almost like she apparated from one side of the wedding to the next! She was so patient when every one seemed to want a photo with us after the ceremony and surprised us still, with some crazy aerial shots, she must have floated to get ;-) My partner and I just keep going through the photos exclaiming, "How did Megan take that?!" I must warn you, reader, every photo she takes is *perfect* which makes it IMPOSSIBLE to choose anything less than all of the photos ;-) So be prepared for tons of AMAZING photos that you will cherish for a lifetime :-D
Not Exaggerating: The World’s Best Wedding Photographer!Reviewed on 8/21/2014 Maura R
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!
Beautiful images from a beautiful talentReviewed on 8/20/2014 DJ S
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.
World's Best Wedding Photographer!Reviewed on 8/14/2014 Lauren B
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! -Lauren
Stunning photosReviewed on 8/11/2014 Kate R
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.
Beautiful Photographer, Artist and Person!Reviewed on 7/04/2014 Shannon M
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!
