I love people that are madly in love. The kind of love that takes your breath away and knocks you right off your feet. I lovingly call them my tribe. They are chill and go with the flow, guided only by their love. they are completely ride or die when it comes to creating some epic magic with me. My tribe starts off as my clients and end as my friends. They trust me to capture the most authentic moments of their story.
Real Love.Real Magic.
I’m a wife, mama, daughter, sister, friend, photographer, beer drinker, music lover, light seeker, cusser, + dreamer.
I call my family my little love squad. I met my soul mate, Mark in high school. Together we love music, beer (he brews!) and we might have a slight obsession with Game of Thrones. Our daughter, Ella is one of the sassiest little girls I’ve ever met. She’s 100% my mini me, actually it’s a little frightening at times. She’s obsessed with reading, broadway and loves to dance. She has the kindest heart, the most gentle soul and every day I’m so proud to be her mom. We also have a rescue pup named, Lollie Bey who loves nothing more than snuggling with me. She's our sweet, delicate flower.
I love camping. If I could spend the entire summer in the woods, in my tent and surrounded by my family I would. Throw in a IPA and my kindle... forget about it, I'm in my happy place. We love to explore our favorite city, Detroit. It's our favorite place to hang out. I watch entirely too much TV and listen to lots of podcasts from Pod Save America to My Favorite Murder (SSDGM). I also dabble in floral design on the side for Jen House Design.
Every picture I have captures the moment so beautifully. You can tell she loves her job which makes the experience that much better. One of the things I loved most about her was how relaxed and easy-going she is. We were running pretty behind in the beginning of the day, but she wasn't worried or stressed at all which means I wasn't stressed. She's also honest which is an important quality to have as a photographer. Nobody is perfect and if something weird is going on with a piece of hair or something she will get the problem solved! If you want timeless, in the moment wedding pictures, hire Meg. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

"One of the things I loved most about her
Meg and her crew were super fun to work with and the photos are unbelievable. We couldn't have picked a better photographer. 1000% happiness.
"the photos are
Meg did the photography for our engagement photos and wedding, and it was a fantastic experience start to finish. She took the time to get to know us as a couple, made us feel comfortable, and the pictures turned out absolutely perfect. My husband and I would definitely call ourselves "awkwardly photo challenged" - but you would never know based off of the pics that Meg took! She captured our day perfectly.
"she captured our day
Meg is the best!!! We felt so comfortable with her throughout the wedding planning process and are just obsessed with our images!! She's also just the coolest.
comfortable with her"
"We felt so
From the very first message, Meg was always prompt to reply to my endless questions, put me at ease about my worries, and was truly excited to help me with considerations for shoot locations and opportunities for our day. She was also very reassuring about being able to capture us both authentically and flatteringly, which was a big worry/fear of mine being a plus-size bride!
I think Meg was even more excited than us (at first) that we were planning a brewery inspired wedding, too. I loved sharing all of our details and ideas with someone who was so vividly imagining the greatness of our day - it gave us confidence and ease in our many planning stages. And when the day came, we had total unwavering faith in her ability to make magic with us and for us!
Looking back, whoa! Meg knocked it out of the park! She was perfect for us; she beautifully captured the little in-between moments and the big wedding day moments, and everything was relaxed and easy! Our pictures were authentic, romantic, perfectly-us, and loved by all!!
Weddings are expensive and there are many investments to be made in creating your perfect day - invest wisely. Meg's talent is priceless!
"Our pictures were...

"Our engagement pics & wedding shots
If I could give you 100 stars I would!
Meg was amazing!!! She was so incredible to work with, I could not recommend her more for your wedding-or any photoshoot really! My whole bridal party loved her and she made me and my husband feel so comfortable every step of the way. It was like taking photos with a best friend. She's above and beyond!
with a best friend"
"It was like taking photos
Meg was so great to work with! She brought so much enthusiasm and fun to every meeting we had with her, and kept it up throughout our wedding day. She made us and our entire wedding party feel so at ease, and my husband (shockingly) even said that taking pictures before the ceremony was his favorite part of the day. We were thrilled with the photos she captured and can't wait to put them up in our apartment. Overall, we would absolutely recommend Meg to any other Detroit couples planning their wedding.
feel so at ease"
"She made us & our entire wedding party
Meg and her assistants recently photographed our wedding ceremony and reception September 2016 and we were blown away with the images and memories she captured on our wedding day. On our wedding day, Meg and her assistants made my husband and I feel very comfortable. She made me feel confident and relaxed on more than one occasion. She knows the shots she needs to get and was able to get more than enough images when we only had a short window of time to get them done. Aside from the great photos we have, this is the biggest reason we are happy we had Meg as our photographer! The details in our photos were perfect (dress, veil, flowers, etc) and we love her trendy, modern, and vibrant style in the photos. She did not miss a moment, either. Simply put, Meg is super talented and cares a lot about her clients. She does a phenomenal job and you will walk away with all of your memories captured and trendy photos to show off!
confident & relaxed"
