Meet the photographer

Megan Welker

 
 

Hey, I’m Meg! 

I’m an engagement, elopement, and wedding photographer located in Northern California (specifically Brentwood, CA). I spend a lot of time exploring NorCal gems like San Francisco, Tahoe, Yosemite, and even more time cuddling in bed with my boyfriend Zeke (pictured above) and our sassy toy poodle named Teddy. When I’m not shooting or snuggling, I am probably hiking, singing along to Tiny Desk Concerts, or sleeping in. 

I am an INFJ who really loves spending time with others, but also really loves spending time at home. I get inspired by being outside and away from all the crowds. My favorite places are national parks - Banff, Zion, Yosemite, Mt. Rainer are top of my lists - and hiking is probably the only form of exercise I actually enjoy. I have watched The Office and Parks & Rec more times than I’d like to admit, and am oddly obsessed with comedic true crime podcasts. I thrive on making lists and planning out timelines, but also am totally aware that not everything always goes according to plan - especially on wedding days!

My main goal every time I head to a session or wedding is to create a low stress, enjoyable experience where even the most awkward photo takers can have fun. I like to play games, run around, dance, make a fool of myself, and do everything I can to help foster authentic, natural interaction in front of the camera. I love candid, fun, happy photos, and I also love epic posed landscape shots, so a lot of times, I follow your lead. If you’re the silliest, goofiest, most high energy couple - then I want the photos to capture that. If you’re more quiet, thoughtful, and grounded, then we’ll focus in on that. Let’s capture what’s true to you, and have fun doing it. 

If you want to talk to me about photo sessions, dogs, national parks, your favorite songs, your hopes and dreams, whatever, head to my contact page & say hello!

Kind Words

Megan (and Zeke) did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding. Literally amazing. A few days before the wedding we did a pre-shoot to get to know each other and the photos turned out incredible. They are also easy to hangout with and fun to be around. The day of the wedding they were professional, helpful, and of course the photos were fantastic. 6 out of 5 stars. In many ways, they went above and beyond and delivered more than we ever could have hoped for from a wedding photographer.
