Megan's work is a blend of documentary, moment-driven imagery and colorful, imaginative portraiture that is always inspired by the environment. Whether she is encapsulated by fog in the mountains, surrounded by the world’s tallest skyscrapers, or established on a private estate, she is inspired by wherever the journey takes her. With a distinctive interpretation of light and shadow, she creates photographs that transcend beyond the ordinary.

Megan travels around the world for her work, photographing experiential weekends with multiple events and intimate adventure elopements. She’s photographed in Uganda, Greece, Hawaii, Estonia, Italy, St. Lucia, Switzerland, Mexico, and beyond.

After 17 years in the wedding industry, Megan has been published in The New York Times, Martha Stewart Weddings, BRIDES, Cosmopolitan, The Knot, Green Wedding Shoes, Style Me Pretty, and many other publications.

In her spare time, you can find her hiking with her family in the Blue Ridge Mountains, reading a suspense novel with a cozy blanket and a cup of coffee, exploring exceptional restaurants, planning her next trip with her husband, and playing the piano late into the night.

With a background in photojournalism, she approaches elopement and portrait photography with a similar eye. She has a heart for memorializing family histories, supporting real marriages, and creating an experience that leaves her couples feeling at ease and like themselves. She is able to seamlessly and almost invisibly document the most vulnerable moments without interruption. 


This image is one of my favorites from our wedding day. You might be wondering what story I could possibly tell about the photograph of my grandfather’s deck shoes. It’s not an exceptional image by any means. The light is flat, and the composition is simple.

Of course, we have many more favorites of beautiful moments and incredible portraits — don’t get me wrong. But, this image of his shoes encapsulates years of memories with my grandfather. He was one to show up on Christmas Eve with repackaged, recycled presents he found in his basement. He had the same clothes for decades and didn’t mind wearing them with holes and stains. He was a child of the depression and a member of the great generation. He grew up on a farm in a small town in Wisconsin where nothing was ever taken for granted. 

We all had a good laugh when he arrived at our wedding in a neatly pressed tux and deck shoes. I have many more memories of similar instances where he arrived for dinner in fresh clothes with dirt on his pants because he was pulling weeds in his garden minutes before. He was always one to be perfectly comfortable with who he was, and that is something I absolutely loved about him. 
On our first date, Brendan and I strolled along the beach that sits cliffs below the home I grew up in. We had our first kiss on its porch steps. Our wedding was hosted at that very house, and we said our vows on the same shoreline we had walked less than two years earlier. The dahlias we chose for our flowers were a symbol and memory of their incredible marriage. I will never forget attending her funeral and watching my grandpa decorate the hall with beautiful dahlias that he had grown and tended to in his garden. Even in death he wanted to bring her flowers. 

The significance of these images didn’t hit me when we received them in the mail. Not even a year later. It wasn’t until my grandpa, 93, was diagnosed with terminal cancer. In that moment, every photograph I had of him became a treasure. 

I share these stories because they are a reflection of why I am a wedding photographer. Moments, memories, and relationships are much more meaningful than perfectly composed images. I enjoy creating art for my couples, and I believe that portraiture is incredibly important. However, the moments with the people we love are cherished the most long after the wedding day is over. 

Trying all of the foodie restaurants.

Spending summers in Michigan where we grew up.

Exploring over relaxing on vacation.

Cuddling with our Samoyed, Poa.

Hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains (or anywhere, for that matter).

Spending time with my boys.

Traveling all over the world.

MY favorite things in life look a little like:

Morningwild was born out of something personal in my life:  my first date with my husband. We met in the morning to grab breakfast and walk on the beach--the same place where we would later say our vows and marry.

Morning is symbolic of the beginning. It's the time of day when you are your most raw self, Before the world and routines begin. It's reminiscent of golden light, sunrise, peace, and nature. Wild is feeling free. It's about passionately creating something unconventional without boundaries.

Together, Morningwild signifies the pursuit of something raw, authentic, and creatively beautiful without limitation.


If we could give her more stars out of five we would. To say we have high expectations is an understatement, and Megan blew those out of the water.

Megan is a true professional from initial email communications through planning and most importantly day of execution...She also blew us away with her perseverance when she hiked through cold, wind, and rain for an engagement shoot and then stuck out the NC summer heat when the power was out for most of the day of our wedding. Instead of complaining or getting frustrated, she was always solution-focused and kept everyone positive in face of unforeseen challenges." 

"Stop your search now. you have found your wedding photographer...


These photos are absolutely amazing. We've  been mesmerized by the whole gallery and truly reliving the day with each shot!

We cannot thank you enough for all of your hard work and for making our wedding day seriously amazing!  You managed to be in every place at once and capture all of the best moments, while ALSO allowing us to be fully present and enjoy every minute of the day.

Prior to the wedding I worried about not having a videographer, but now I see with your photos a videographer was not needed. Each shot truly encapsulates so much raw and genuine emotion. Each picture is timeless and emanates such love....years from now we will be able to look at them and still get this feeling!

You have been a pleasure to work with every step of the way and are grateful to have found you!


Beckett and I were blown away at the wedding photos, and we cannot say thank you enough. They really bring me to tears looking at them, and we both feel like we're right back in that moment. Your punctuality, responsiveness, professionalism, and raw talent are unmatched. Not to mention, you are such an enjoyable, calming person to be around and that was exactly what we were looking for on that day.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything that you did for us. We will absolutely recommend you to anyone looking for a wedding photographer in the future.

I'm loving everything, EVERYTHING!!! The hardest thing to wrap my mind around is how in the hell am I going to have any wall space left when I'm done printing, and printing, and printing and then some...

You killed it.

I can't even tell you how many people have complimented us on the pictures and how amazing they are. One of the remarks being:  "Those are the best wedding pictures I have ever seen in my entire life."  ...I can't tell you how wonderful you have made this entire experience...You're a true angel. We love you;  we love our pictures; we love the experience we had, [and] the adventures we went on.
