Just in case you didn’t get it before from the website name, I’m the woman behind the camera. 

Walls are lonely without photos. Coffee tables are sad without photo albums. And your Christmas cards should not have everyone in matching reindeer sweaters (unless that’s your vibe, which is honestly pretty awesome). Let's do this memory-making thing!

It's me, Megan!

The Venue

If you are planning your Shupe Homestead wedding consider doing it during the fall. Shupe Homestead is located on a winding country road and when you arrive on the property it feels like you’ve stepped into a quiet, weekend retreat. Although the property is beautiful during every season, my favorite time of year to photograph this location is definitely fall. Yellow and gold leaves dance around the property like confetti and the warmth of the field behind the venue is at an all time high.  For the most beautiful lighting be sure to plan your ceremony a few hours before sunset to ensure plenty of time to soak up the golden rays. The indoor banquet hall has a great space for dancing and plenty of room for family style seating.

If you’ve got photography on the mind, this property has a plethora of options no matter the weather. From open fields overlooking the foothills to a beautiful pond right next to the outdoor ceremony location. You can’t go wrong no matter which way you turn!

The Wedding

If I’m totally honest, my best memory of Katlyn and James’ wedding day was her mom’s snickerdoodle cookies. At my own wedding, my one request for my mother was that she bake her famous cookies and load up our dessert bar with them. She followed through. I’m sure Katlyn had a similar request and that’s exactly why she and James have my heart. Their wedding day was filled with faith and family. And isn’t that what every wedding should look like?

From the tearful hidden first look with their family and friends surrounding them to the most beautiful sunset I’ve seen all year…everything about their day was magic. Katlyn and James were big on memories and prayer. Their family and friends blessed them with a day filled with both of these.

Megan is the best! Megan was hands down our best wedding vendor and we would hire her 1000 times over. Actually, I know we will when we need family photos! Megan is not only incredibly talented with photography but she really helps keep to the time line, which helped us a ton on the day of! From our crazy (blizzard) engagement shoot to a month after the wedding we have loved working with and talking with Megan! We couldn’t be more in love with our photos and are so thankful!! She captured everything we wanted and so much more, and we even have a photo of almost every guest!!

There were points during the ceremony that I think Megan duplicated herself to get every angle. My fiance and I were both uncomfortable in front of the camera and Megan was able to get us to relax and get plenty of authentic, candid and beautiful photos. There are so many that we love that we don't know how we will choose what to frame or include in our photo albums. Megan has a great approach to weddings, she provides just enough feedback to help you take the perfect photos while also staying in the background to allow you to enjoy each moment of your special day.

Megan was an absolute godsend from the beginning. Not only does she take amazing photos and has a very approachable price-- her personality is a total bonus! She lightened the mood when storm clouds rolled in ("It won't rain. It never rains. Those clouds are a joke, no way, not today!") and when our wedding shuttle brought guests to the wrong place- she kept us laughing and moving through the photo-ops efficiently. She was directive and efficient- both things you really NEED on your wedding day- while still being calm and positive. Megan's an absolute gem... we could not have asked for more in a wedding photographer and look forward to using her services for future events!
