My senior photo shoot with Megan was definitely one of the most enjoyable experiences that I have had the opportunity to participate in. Coming into this I didn't really know what to expect, other than I knew from the pictures online that Megan was the one that I wanted to capture my senior pictures.
As for the day of the photo shoot, I was so excited and could not wait for it to start. The make-up and hair artist did exactly as I asked, and I couldn't have been happier with the outcome, (which says a lot because I am picky about those kinds of things.) Megan made sure that the venues I wanted were available and was so wonderful to my mom and I. Not only did Megan take some amazing shots of me, but she really connected with me which made it that much more personal. I felt like I could laugh, and be myself around her, which helped allow her to really capture the real me. I definitely will not forget this night, and am glad that these pictures will always remind me of it.
We were looking for senior photos that were both classic and fun and that would capture our daughter's beauty and spirit at this time in her life. Megan made sure I was included in the planning and actual photo shoot as much as I wanted. She helped Claire decide what outfits to wear and which locations were unique. The whole process start to finish was professional as well as fun for both Claire and me.
It was great to see how Megan worked with Claire to keep her relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. As a parent I enjoyed watching both of them work to create beautiful, unique shots. From the sneak peeks she gave me, we are very excited to see the final results. I highly recommend Megan for her artistry behind the camera, her work ethic during the photo shoots to get the shots and her great personality. The whole process has been low stress and very enjoyable.
Megan is absolutely AMAZING! Working with her is so much fun and she doesn't make you feel nervous or anxious in front of the camera at all. If you want someone who will make sure you feel amazing about yourself in front of the camera, Megan is your photographer. She makes you feel comfortable and talks to you about what you want in order to make sure you get the most out of your pictures and have a great time in the process.
The entire experience, from hair and makeup to the final product, is super personal and your input always matters. I had an amazing time consulting with both Megan and the makeup artist before my shoot and the shoot itself was a blast. She gives you a couple sneak peeks at the back of the camera to show you just how stunning you look and constantly raves about how amazing you are and how awesome the photos will be (it's a giant confidence booster). I loved everything about the experience Megan has created. She is so creative and talented that you couldn't get images of this caliber anywhere else!
Senior portraits have changed pretty dramatically from the mid-1980's when I had mine done! When Mary came to me and said she wanted her portraits done by Megan Engeseth Photography, I admit that I was a little hesitant. While I loved the Senior portraits that Megan had in the gallery on her website (and the portraits she took of my daughter's friend), as a mom I wanted not just creative and artistic pictures of my daughter, but I wanted those photos to really capture her true personality and style. Not just creative to be creative; a creative showcase of my daughter.
When we met Megan at the booking consult, my concerns were quickly set aside. Megan really got to know what Mary was looking for even though sometimes it is hard for a teenager to articulate specifics. It was more than just asking certain questions. It felt like Megan was watching body language and looking for personality cues to get a good understanding of not only what my daughter wanted but who my daughter was. The actual photo session was more than just taking a bunch of pictures - it was truly an experience. Megan chose some phenomenal sites that fit perfectly with what Mary had envisioned. Mary had a great experience, she looked beautiful and it clearly showed in her final images. Thank you Megan
