The storyteller behind the lens and the face of Megan Alea Photography. What fuels my passion for wedding photography? It's the unrivaled joy of freezing moments that tell your unique love story. The contagious energy, the shared laughter, and the genuine connections – they light my soul on fire.
What sets me apart? Well, besides an arsenal of camera gear, I'm not just your typical photographer. I love mingling with your guests, catching grandma's infamous dance moves, and capturing the unexpected moments that make your day one-of-a-kind. I believe in more than just pretty pictures; I believe in crafting an experience that feels as authentic as your love.
When I'm not behind the camera, you might catch me exploring new coffee shops in search of the perfect iced coffee or attempting to master the art of making latte art (emphasis on attempting!). Because life is too short not to find joy in the little quirks and moments.
So, if you're ready for a wedding photography experience that's not just about the photos but about celebrating the magic of your love, then I'm your person. Let's create some memories together – the kind that make you smile every time you look back.
As your photographer, my commitment goes beyond just capturing images; it extends to ensuring that you feel comfortable, confident, and genuinely yourselves in front of the camera. I understand that the best photos are born from moments of authenticity and connection. I strive to create an environment where you can be yourselves, allowing me to document the essence of your love naturally.
My mission is to serve my clients by not only delivering stunning photographs but also by creating an experience that exceeds expectations. I go above and beyond to understand your vision, preferences, and unique story, tailoring my approach to suit your individual style. From the initial consultation to the final delivery of your photos, I am dedicated to making your photography experience seamless, enjoyable, and unforgettable.
Trust in my commitment to capturing the beauty of your love story, and rest assured that I will go the extra mile to ensure that every moment is cherished and every photo is a reflection of the genuine connection you share.
Embarking on my photography journey was more than a career choice; it was a calling rooted in a deep love for storytelling and capturing the beauty of genuine moments. My passion for freezing time began with a desire to preserve the authenticity of life's fleeting emotions. Every shoot is an exploration, a new canvas to paint the unique love story of each couple.
Motivated by a profound purpose, I am driven to go beyond traditional photography, infusing each image with personality and soul. My distinctive style is a blend of artistic flair and documentary storytelling, capturing those raw emotions and genuine connections. What sets me apart is not just my technical skill but a commitment to creating an experience that mirrors the uniqueness of your love.
For me, photography is not just about taking pictures; it's about crafting visual narratives that transport you back to the emotions and joy of your special day. Your wedding is a story waiting to be told and retold for years and generations to come. Let me be the storyteller who immortalizes your love, creating a timeless collection of memories that will stand the test of time.
From the first light of the day to the last dance of the night, my approach to capturing your wedding is rooted in a commitment to authenticity and storytelling. As your visual narrator, I arrive with boundless energy, ready to document every nuance that makes your day uniquely yours. Beginning with the intimate moments of the bride and her squad preparing for the day, to the groomsmen sharing a quiet moment of camaraderie, I aim to be both a part of the celebration and an unseen observer.
With a wealth of experience, I understand the ebb and flow of weddings, ensuring that your day unfolds seamlessly. Whether capturing the unscripted joy during the ceremony, the heartfelt toasts at the reception, or the spontaneous moments on the dance floor (Aunt Doris included!), I strive to be where the magic happens. My style is a dynamic blend of candid shots that capture genuine emotions and carefully composed, styled shots that reflect the elegance of the occasion.
Consider me not just as your photographer but as a curator of memories, ensuring that every precious detail is preserved. I aim to create a visual narrative that not only mirrors the beauty of the day but also helps you relive those cherished moments for years to come.
My favorite snack is ice cream.
If I have my headphones in, I’m most likely listening to a true-crime podcast. Morbid, Crime Junkie, And That's Why We Drink— all so good!
My ideal day? Starting the day off by sleeping in (you can never have too much sleep), grabbing an iced coffee from a local coffee shop, and running “errands” at Target. Then ending the day by going to a brewery with my husband Marcus and our doodle Ellie, or playing some pool at Coop De Ville!
I love romance reality tv shows, aka trash tv. A good way to wind down at the end of the day is catching up on some Bachelor or Married at First Sight!
We are completely stunned by how incredible our photos are! You have an incredible gift, and we are so blessed to have worked with you! You are also just as sweet as you are talented. You are the BEST!!!
