Hey I'm Meg Elise and I'm so glad you're here! I can't wait to hear all about your dream wedding plans. I find it so enjoyable to hear about how unique your wedding day will be.

I truly care about creating and capturing heart-felt candid moments! I love to have fun at your wedding or session. I will be there to direct you every step of the way. My goal is for you to have timeless photos that you can pass down to your future generations.

Our photos are even more stunning than we could have imagined! Meg was so easy to work with from the very beginning and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera during our wedding day. She also helped us with the timeline for our day and made sure we stayed on track. The whole bridal party had so much fun taking pictures! We'll cherish these photos forever.

"more stunning than we could have imagined!"

My fiancé and I are working with Meg for our wedding photography and she has been amazing! She is very communicative, accommodating, and friendly! Our engagement photos are beautiful and I can’t wait for her to capture all our special moments during our big day!

I  begin my process with a conversation. I want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how you got engaged.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with me and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

I'm here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. I've photographed more than 50 weddings in the past few years and I'm happy to share everything I've learned along the way! 

Wedding Advice

I'm a big fan of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. I’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. I normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules.

I will check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day. 

While I normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let me know if you have questions during the planning process!

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends.

The Big Day

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about one to two months of your wedding day. At that time, I'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

I hope our relationship doesn't end after I deliver your photographs. I want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, I would love to document your growing family.

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an album. These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include two rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day.


My wedding packages include a complimentary engagement session. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how I pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why we’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, I’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.

Engagement Sessions

Fantastic! To reserve your wedding date, I’ll need a completed contract and a 20% non-refundable deposit. If you don’t have a contract yet, just let me know and I’ll send one over! The remaining balance will be due one month before the wedding day.

We love your work and we’re ready to book! What’s the next step?

Galleries typically include 50+ photos per hour. The exact amount varies from wedding to wedding. Your online gallery will come loaded with fully edited high resolution images you can print anywhere. You’re also welcome to share your wedding photos on social media as long as you credit me and the link to my website.

How many photos are typically included and can we print the photos ourselves?

I typically add travel fees on to any wedding outside of a 60 mile radius from my home in IL. Fees vary depending on location so ask me for more details.

When do you charge travel fees?
