Hey, I'm Megan.
I'm a documentary wedding and family lifestyle storyteller photographer based in Johannesburg, South Africa. My love for people and connection and being able to capture this in a raw, honest and creative way is what makes my heart skip a beat.
Your story is so important to me. I'm not here to stage moments or pose you I am here to capture the essence of your love.
My Photography Philosophy
My philosophy is simple - every photo needs to tell a story. I love to achieve this in a creative, non obtrusive, honest and raw way. When you look back at your photographs 10, 20 - 50 years down the line I don't want you to remember what it looked like l want you to remember what it felt like, I want it to ignite something deep within your heart and soul.
I am not here to capture the cover of the You Magazine photographs kind of shots. To capture the real connection and bond between a couple and all your friends and family is what I strive for. It goes beyond being in the right place at the right time and clicking the shutter. It's so much more than that.
It is using emotional intelligence to foresee a moment that is about to transpire. It is knowing your gear and skill so well that you are prepared at any given time to capture spontaneity. It is being able to bring calm, intimacy and trust to the couple shoot portion of the day.
"What Megan does is ensure the emotion of that moment is captured, and every time you look back at your photographs, like we are, you will be transported back to those precious fleeting moments.
Its your gateway back. It’s time travel and Megan is simply a genius.”
I am more than just the person taking the wedding photos I am there to enhance your day - through my calming presence, to my "funny" jokes, to being there for you both when you need an extra pair of hands.
I genuinely care about you and your wedding day and really do want you to have the best day ever filled with love, laughter, adventure. I am here for all of it.
I am not a photographer who will be in your face the whole day, I will respectfully keep my distance during the ceremony but still capture all of the moments - that sneaky tear the groom thought no one saw, that look between the two of you that lasted only but a second but speaks of 10 years of love.
When I am not being a fly on the wall capturing everything that is naturally happening around us I am making sure our time together taking portraits, family photos and the couple shoot is relaxed, calm and fun. I am all about slowing down the pace of the wedding so you really can take it in at the same time I am also not going to keep you away from your guests for 2 hours during a couple shoot.
My sense of wonder and adventure has lead me to shoot in game reserves, at the base of waterfalls, in a cave, on the top of mountains. So if you have a heart for wild adventures I'm your girl.
“We were so grateful to have Megan as our wedding photographer. We don’t know how but she managed to be there to capture all the special moments at our wedding and her attention to detail is second to none. She manages to be super professional whilst also making you feel like an old friend. Our photos turned out absolutely amazing and we will cherish them forever, the way she has captured the day allows us to relive the emotion as well. Megan we cannot thank you enough for giving us such beautiful memories”
