From The People Who Know

press & praise

real couples.
real experiences.

You made us feel like you really cared about us and our wedding — your enthusiasm made me even more excited...

I was surprised by how involved you were with the details and how well you understood my vision. I believe that if you love an artist's work it's best to trust them, so that's exactly what I did. But the biggest surprise to me was that you became someone I would consider a friend (probably because you were so involved on the most important day of my life).

I could not possibly be more in love with the gallery... They're absolutely perfect.

Working with Meghan was a dream. I had preconceived notions about engagement shoots (I thought they were super cheesy) but she encouraged us to do them so we could get to know her and how she works, and I'm so glad we did. She made us feel comfortable immediately. It was all super easy. I felt like we just goofed around and laughed for a couple hours but then also got some amazing photos out of it. We then knew exactly what to expect on the wedding day, and it was seamless and so much fun. 

All the photos were of real moments that will spark the best memories of that day for years to come.

There are not enough words to explain our complete gratitude and appreciation of Meghan Hemstra and her insanely beautiful work. My husband and I were recommended Meghan via our wedding planner and we are SO grateful for it. 

First off, Meghan is INSANELY TALENTED. Her work is absolutely breathtaking and she has the most incredible eye. She has a way of capturing the most beautiful and delicate moments that truly speak to the essence of her subjects. Her aesthetic is genuine as she is able to effortlessly bring out real connection between her couples. Of course I am speaking to this as she did EXACTLY that with me and my husband for our wedding. 

The photos she will deliver for your special day are beyond words. My husband and I were losing our minds when she sent us the teasers. They BLEW us away (and we are picky!)... We will cherish these beautiful photos forever as well as our UNREAL experience working with Meghan. She is the real deal and you will thank your lucky starts for years to come if you have the opportunity to work with her. 

Incredible human. Incredible photos. Incredible value. Incredible experience. 

“This. Woman. Is. Incredible.”

Not only we LOVE all of our photos, but also we had a great time working with her during our big day. She and her assistant had a great positive energy that made us feel super comfortable and helped us to actually have fun. The single most important thing for us was to have photos that don't look staged or like everyone else's weddings. Our wedding shots are unique to us. They present a real picture of how we felt that day. Meghan has a unique style of capturing and editing photos and you just need to trust her. She will listen to you and deliver.

"Among all the decisions we made during our wedding planning, choosing Meghan as our photographer is the one I am the most proud of!"

-Mana & navid

My experience with Meghan was nothing short of amazing. She is incredibly professional and a very talented and experienced photographer. She is able to capture you and your loved ones in spontaneous moments, even if you are uncomfortable in front of the camera (like I am)! I look back on my photos often and am filled with gratitude that I have these wonderful memories because of her. On top of that, she is also an amazing person...she really listens and is truly focused on making this a fun experience for you. I also trust her judgement completely, and she had many great tips for me and my family that I'm so glad she shared. She is a fantastic photographer and I'm so lucky to call her a friend.

We are SO in love with our photos! I actually teared up when I saw them. Our wedding day flew by so fast that when it was over, it almost felt like it was all a dream. Meghan captured every part of our day so beautifully, from the little details to the big moments and everything in between. We were truly able to relive that day all over again, and that was so special to us.

The minute I first met Meghan (over the phone) I knew it would be a good fit because we had a similar sense of humour. She was really low key and I never felt like she looked at me sideways for acting like a crazy person. 

I remember looking at the photos and thinking "damn, I look good!" But in all honesty, the photos I love the most are the ones I didn't know were being taken. Eating pizza while getting ready and talking to my dog, high-fiving after the ceremony, a hug I forgot we had, dancing in sneakers. There were so many photos of moments that I'd forgotten or felt like a blur - every photo was amazing, but those are the ones that I keep going back to. Also the detailed decor photos, because I loved my flowers and never want to forget how gorgeous the room looked that day!

“The process is so simple and uncomplicated.”
