Hi! My name is Meg LaBarbera and I am a wedding and lifestyle portrait photographer and owner of Creative Image Collections, a exclusive boutique style wedding & portrait photography studio based in Fairfield County. I love meeting new people and learning about their story of who they are and how they met. I love envisioning and creating just about everything. I LOVE life, and have always had a strong passion for photography (quite obsessive actually ;o). I love to take a fun, modern and artistic approach to photographing weddings. I hope I have the opportunity to meet you and learn about you as a couple and your unique wedding! I strive to create excellent customer service, remain personable with my clients and in doing so prefer to take on a limited amount of commissions per year so I can be consistent with providing you with a personable experience.
Serving CT, NY, NJ, MA, RI and available for world-wide travel!
"MINE TO CAPTURE. YOURS TO KEEP."

I had and still am having a terrible experience with this vendor. I hired Megan in August of 2012. I chose her highest level package which included an engagement session. My now husband and I drove all the way from NJ to CT to have this engagement session that lasted hours. At no time were we told that the images were an extra cost. On a $7,000 wedding package one would think that when it says "included: engagement session", it means you get photos. After months of waiting, we received an online gallery of resized smaller images. At this time Megan became extremely difficult to work with. I explained that there was a miscommunication and that her contract did not detail what we did and did not get. She said there was no miscommunication, it was a misunderstanding on my part and she would not be doing anything to rectify the situation. She then continued to send me emails bullying me and making me feel absolutely horrible. I decided at this time she would not be a good fit for our wedding and hired a different photographer. I lost $1,000 and didn't get my photos. She continued to write me bullying emails insisting I take my bad reviews down. She did eventually send me my photos after I went all the way to Connecticut to file a claim in small claims court, but I never received my $1,000 back. After over a year of dealing with this, and now being married for 5 months, I received a hand delivered letter from a messenger yesterday. It was from Megan's lawyer threatening to sue me if I did not take my reviews down. What is the point of having online reviews if a vendor pays to have the bad ones removed. After going through months of bullying emails, I am now being harassed. I WISH there had been reviews for me to read when I looked at this photographer. For everyone reading this, my advice is to steer clear of this vendor. If she handled her business and her customers well she wouldn't need to threaten people.

Been married almost 2 years. Megan was fine until it was time to produce our wedding album. She will stop returning phone calls and emails and has virtually disappeared. STRAIGHT UP SCAM ARTIST. Please listen to the other negative reviews. They are 100% correct. She is not a professional, but just playing photographer with other peoples money. You will regret using her services.

Just to explain our situation, we have a signed contract with her. She has missed every date for delivery that she had given us. She was paid in full (stupid on our part) and has yet to deliver our album.

Megan was contracted to photograph our 2010 wedding. Three years later we have yet to receive our album and prints as per contract. We are suing Creative Image Collections for breach of contract and items not satisfactorily received.

As I stated planning my wedding I immediately knew where I wanted to spend the bulk of my money. I am addicted to pictures and capturing memories, so having a talented photographer was high on my priority list. A few of my friends had recently gotten married and I had seen Creative Image Collection photos from their wedding pictures and LOVED them. I knew I had to have Megan as a photographer. Her pictures capture every detail, every emotion, and are creative and authentic to every bride. Her vision for different photos and postions/locations is one that goes beyond what the general eye can see. She is very fun and outgoing and extremely flexible.

I highly recommend her to any bride in CT. She is the most talented photographer I know and I can't tell you enough how much I love our pictures. If I were to get married all over again, she would still be our photographer-she is AMAZING!!

i absolutely loved Meg's work from the beginning when I first met her. She's extremely talented and passionate which shows through her work and her overall demeanor. She's extremely easy to work with, very laid back and accomodating. I recommend her to everyone I know who are ALL continuously impressed with her wedding images.

From the moment we saw the Creative Image Collections website we knew we wanted Megan to capture our wedding day. She is professional, personable, understanding as well as beyond creative and talented.

Meg captured every little detail and emotion. My husband and I are so happy to have these memories (and some really gorgeous fine art pieces for our wall) to look back on. Our friends and family are so impressed and have had nothing but rave reviews.

Would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone!
