– WELCOME TO MY CORNER –
I am so excited that you landed on my little piece of the internet! I hope you’ll get cozy and stay for a little while. Meagan Nicole Photography is a natural light photography company with a focus on weddings, in-home lifestyle sessions, births and brands.
Growing up, I always had a camera in my hand and a photo-op in mind. For me, it’s all about authentic expression and beautiful, soft light. I am so thankful for each and every client and story I’ve been blessed to be a part of.
LETS GET PERSONAL:
I live in Lancaster, PA – where you experience ALL four seasons every year, the hipsters are multiplying by the dozen and “farm to table” is our hallelujah chorus.
My husband Caleb and I tied the knot September 14th, 2014 and he is my very best friend. Together we live on a lake, renovating our 67 year old home along with our son 3 year old Owen, our 1.5 year old daughter Kinsley and our 6 year old goldendoodle Kemma.
Caleb is my second shooter on wedding days and lately we’ve been enjoying learning the art of drone photography, which we offer free of charge in our wedding bundles (weather permitting).
We love any chance to hop on a plane or take a road trip. Our current bucket list travels are: anywhere out West, Banff National Park, Iceland and France. We like baileys in our coffee and Fall weather in the air. Pizza + taco’s are our weakness, and true crime documentaries totally suck us in. On free weekends you will usually catch us having a campfire.
I come from a close-knit family. They’ve been a huge role in getting me to where I am today. It’s my dream to travel lots of places and live a full life, showing the fruits of the Spirit wherever I go. I’m daily reminding myself that it is just as important to live IN the moment as it is to capture the moment. I love the Lord with all my heart. Looking back over my business and personal life, it amazes me to see the doors that The Lord has opened and how faithful He’s been in having His hand in my life.
S I L L Y FA C T S:
I ALWAYS have a stash of candles in my linen closet + cheese in my fridge. Thus my long term nickname: Megaroni because macaroni and cheese is life. I am 28 and wear the title of being an “open book” to a fault. I’m a sucker for memories, so much so that I have a tendency to hold on to anything that could be slightly related to a memory (movie tickets, birthday cards, notes – you name it, I’ve kept it). I prefer my coffee cold. Sunsets are addicting to photograph. My guilty pleasure is being such a huge fan of Bachelor Nation (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, Bachelor In Paradise… and WINTER GAMES!?!..let’s pour that wine and laugh at the live tweets together). My not so secret goal in life is to photograph celebrity level events and mmmmaybe start a podcast someday.
I love weekends that involve family time, dear friends and a good bonfire. I have a crush on pottery. I love to write out my thoughts and feelings. I enjoy culture and traveling. Cool, breezy, sunny weather is my jam. I live for having my windows open and usually refuse to admit when Winter is upon us for that very reason, until my inner homebody gets to hibernate to a great snowstorm.
D E T A I L S:
Meagan Nicole Photography was started in 2009 when I decided to pursue some local internships to learn more about the craft and business of photography. This led to taking photos for family and friends, and friends of friends, and then people I’d never met! After focusing on portraiture for most of 2010, I decided to take a big ole leap into the wonderful world of weddings. I started out by second shooting a handful of weddings for local, established photographers and as my portfolio grew, word of mouth began to grow rapidly as well. In 2011 I photographed my first wedding on my own and quickly decided to make photographing weddings and portrait sessions my full time passion in 2012. Over the years I’ve hosted some truly gifted interns + team members and just feel so blessed for all this this career has carried me through. In 2017, I decided to scale back on the amount of weddings I take on per year, to be able to focus more on being a mother. I’ve been second shooting to still get my wedding fill and it’s been such a blessing.
Ever since giving birth I have become obsessed with all things motherood related and have found my newest passion which is photographing labor + delivery as part of the Village Birth Collective team (your one stop shop for allllll things birth and mama related).
