I am a wedding and portrait photographer based out of the Kalamazoo, Michigan area (but ready to travel!). As your wedding photographer I want to document the entire day for you. The details, the smiles, the tears, and everything in between. It's beautiful to see each couples connection with each other, and to the people they choose to surround themselves with on that special day. I'll spend time getting to know you so that I'm prepared to both capture the day and help to ensure that everything goes smoothly. If you like my style, which I describe as, clean, colorful, and timeless, let's chat! I'd love to see how I can make your vision come true!
We can set up a coffee date, phone call, video chat, or something else that is easy for you, to decide if I am the right fit for wedding day or portrait needs.
I'll be there to answer any questions you have. As your day get's closer we will nail down a shot list, timeline, and anything else we need to make the day run smoothly!
Let's Take Pictures!
Most wedding packages come with a complimentary engagement session. The engagement session will help you get comfortable in front of a camera, and allows us to get to know each other!
This day is all about you! So much planning and effort goes into your wedding day and i'd be honored to capture it for you!
Each couple's wedding is unique to them, which I love! That also means that each person has different needs on their day. I'd love to hear more about your wedding so that I can give you a quote.
Weddings start at $3100
"Megan was amazing for both our engagement and wedding photos. She is very professional and listens to every detail of what you want. Our photos are all beautiful. Book Megan for your next wedding or photo shoot. We will be booking our future family photo shoots with her for years to come! Thank you Megan for capturing so many wonderful moments on our very special day!"
"Thank you @MeganJudithPhotography! We could not have found sweeter, kinder, more talented people to photograph our wedding. We love our photos!"
"We laugh through every session with Megan. She always tells us where to put our hands, which is much appreciated! I always end up with so many pictures that I feel should go on my wall after we are done with a shoot. We are lucky to have a talented photographer in our life"
Let's get together, yeah yeah yeah
INQUIRE WITH ME
How do I book with you?I'm so glad you've decided I am the right fit for your photography needs! After we've chatted and determined your photography needs, I'll send you a contract and an invoice for a non-refundable retainer (25% of your wedding package). As soon as the contract is signed and the retainer is paid, your date is secure and we are rockin and rollin! If you're booking a portrait session, the same will apply except the non-refundable retainer is 50% of your session fee.
How many pictures will I get?I deliver around 50 images per hour of coverage on a wedding day. This means I usually deliver 400+ images. However, I don't stop editing when I've hit that number. I'm not going to withhold memories from you! I'll edit any picture I think you'll enjoy and include it in your gallery. Usually this just means I cull out duplicates and any where eyes are closed, etc. For portrait sessions I deliver 40+ images. Again, there is no limit. You will receive a gallery of high resolution images that can be downloaded. You will also have the print rights to the images.
How long until I get my photos back?I know how hard it can be to wait for pictures and that is why I have a process in place to make sure you don't have to wait too long! Wedding couples get a sneak peek as soon as i can! This is always within a couple of days. I also provide what I call a "mini gallery" within 2 weeks of the wedding. No one wants to wait to see their images. The sneak peek gallery contains at least 50 images from your day. This is meant to hold you over until you get your full gallery delivered within 6 weeks of your wedding day. Portrait clients also receive a hand full of images within a couple of days! Portrait session galleries are delivered within 4 weeks.
Is there a second photographer?My wedding packages do include a second photographer in some capacity. It is always great to have a second person there to help capture special moments. *Elopements don't typically include a second photographer. I am also the only photographer at your portrait session (which includes your engagement session)
Will you pose us?My goal is to capture natural looking images. HOWEVER! I am a firm believer that natural looking photos don't usually happen naturally. I will absolutley guide you through your shoot! My photography style is a mix of photojournalistic and traditional. I think you need those traditional shots for grandma's mantel, but I also love a more candid looking image (even if it wasn't actually candid). On a wedding day I am always looking for moments to snap and save for you to look back on (many of which you probably didn't get to see yourself). Family session galleries with small kiddos usually end up having a lot of candid images! But we definitley also cheese it up for the camera.
What is your backup system?I shoot on cameras with dual memory card slots. The role of the second slot is as "backup". This means every image I take on your wedding day is stored on two different memory cards. Neither of these memory cards are deleted until your final gallery is delivered. I also upload the raw images to a cloud storage system and an external hard drive. *Tip: when interviewing wedding photographers, I would always recommend asking your photographer this question. Dual card use is a must, as well as backing up the images to more than just a computer.
