My husband and I hired Megan Quist Photography (Megan and Carlton Quist) for our Aug. 10, 2012 wedding. We would have liked to have posted this earlier to warn all you brides out there, but we had to TAKE THEM TO COURT to get our pictures. It took almost a YEAR to get our pics. Here are the broad strokes:
We had a great experience with them, until it came time to deliver on our pictures. Thanksgiving and Christmas came and went...our pictures still weren’t ready. We always had to initiate contact with them regarding the delays - not once did they reach out to us, and they only communicated via email and would not return calls.
More promises to get us our photos, but nothing delivered. Now it’s Feb – 6-months since our wedding, no pictures, only empty promises and lies. After all this time of trying to get our pictures from them, and them not delivering, we hired an attorney. Over the next 4-months, through our attorney, we gave them several other chances to provide our pictures without going to court, which they never did. On June 26, 2013 we went to court.
We all got in front of the judge, were sworn in, and memorialized the agreement. The very next morning we awoke with an email from our attorney, forwarding an email from Carlton that he wanted to change several terms of the agreement. We paid over $2K in attorney fees to get our wedding images, and he was concerned $20-$30 for some flash drives. He also wanted us to agree to a gag order – so as not to post this review. If you would like additional details on our dealing with them please feel free to email us at carpenter08.10.12@hotmail.com. No brides should go through this.

My wife and I had pictures taken by Megan and Carlton in August of 2012. The photo taking went well and we were excited to get our pictures back to remember the day with our friends and family. Several months passed by and still no pictures. We contacted them and were given several excuses as to why there were not ready. After that point we no longer could get any communication from Megan. The only form of communication was by email and would only be from Carlton, not Megan. We signed the contract with Megan and were looking forward to working with her. We finally were shown the pictures and they were less than impressive compared to examples of previous work we had been shown when we signed the contract. They were nothing like anything she had shown us of her previous work when we signed the contract. She had promised some artistic pictures and was one reason we ended up choosing her, the couple that were available were just simple collages or black and white edits, and to top it off one had our names on it with my wife's name misspelled. Since then they have not yet changed or corrected their mistake. Early on they communicated that we would be getting a discount and they would give us a photo book for the delay we had to endure. Now 14 months later and still do not have access to our photos and they will not agree to the discount or photobook they already had promised to make up for their delays. We still are able to get any communication from Megan and we feel very helpless in our situation and frustrated that it turned out this way. We do not feel comfortable giving them any more money without being able to ensure our pictures will ever be given to us or even being able to talk to Megan to correct the errors in the photos. I would definitely never recommend working with them or giving them any money before receiving any actual photos. It definitely seems like something has changed in their business situation. I would be careful dealing with them.

I read of the recent troubles with MQP in the Pioneer Press. I'd like to start by expressing my sympathy to those people. Nobody should have to go through what they went through. Upon reading the article, I learned that most of the trouble stemmed from Megan's (now former) husband. I also see that he is no longer in the picture. From what I can tell, this should resolve any issues people may have had with MQP in the past.

We also had MQP contracted on our special day, I'd like to share our experience.

We decided to do a "location wedding" with our ceremony on the shore of Lake Superior. We also planned to have a reception back in the Twin Cities the next day. Megan met us on up on the North Shore, and was back in the Twin Cities the next day prepared for another day of shooting.

The wedding day was damp, a little windy, and unseasonably cold. You wouldn't know it from the photos though. They managed to capture the greens of spring, the blue sky, the crashing waves, the granite boulders, the rusty iron widgets, and the lichen covered concrete. Everything looks so beautiful. Megan set up several wonderful scenes that not only captured my wife's beauty, but accentuated it with a nuanced direction and an artists eye for backdrop scenery.

In addition, because our infant twin boys were in attendance, we have some of the most adorable photos of our boys any parent could hope for. As part of our package, Megan would normally offer a pre-nuptial photo session. In our case, she offered to do a set with our boys. So in this case we did a post-wedding photo shoot with our toddlers. Again I challenged Megan with an outdoor location. We met at St.Anthony Falls and have an awesome set of photos of our boys with an autumn backdrop.

I found Megan to be very easy to deal with, and her skill with a camera is undeniable.

My wife and I could not be happier with our photos and would not hesitate to recommend MQP.

My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with the photos and service we received from Megan. From the very first she gave us the attention and service we needed to plan a wedding! She was very flixible, even as I changed my wants and needs list multiple times. On the day of my wedding, Megan captured so many moments that I didn't even know happened, I was amazed at her ability to be everywhere at once!

We ended up with 1,000 photos of our wedding day and we love every single one of them. John doesn't like "posed" shots much, and Megan was great at capturing very natural moments with both of us, as well as with the whole wedding party. I can re-live my whole wedding day, and all the laughter just by looking at my photos!

Megan was by far the most affordable photographer we looked at. For the level of service we received, for the amount of work she put in to perfecting each picture, to all the prints and the CD of all the photos, the value we received can not be beat.

We plan to use Megan many times in our future to capture our lives. My friends and family can't wait to use her too!

Thank you Megan!

I agree with several other comments below. I often visit Megan's website (www.meganquistphotography.com) to see what new, interesting, and artistic photos she may have added. I'm always amazed to see the wonders she's been able to work with the weddings she's photographed (not to mention her shots of children, arts and travel, etc.). She has a great eye for shots that, as someone already mentioned, you wouldn't have dreamed were possible.

Having been familiar with her work for quite some time, I've recommended her to friends living all across the country, especially since her prices are so reasonable, that the additional cost of her travel would likely still amount to less than a local photographer for these friends. Often, when I see photos of weddings done by other photographers, the thought crosses my mind that Megan could have done so much more, so much better.

My wedding site was not ideal for photos, and the weather was a little sketchy, but Megan was able to find some great backdrops, and work around lighting challenges to come up with some very cool images.

She has a lot of experience doing both traditional portrait-style pictures and more edgy/artistic/fun poses. She's very flexible and willing to work with her clients' ideas as well.

Also, I've gotten great reactions from friends and family to some of the photos I've posted on Facebook--"Gorgeous" and "absolutely beautiful" were popular responses, among others. I, personally, would not have entertained the notion of hiring anyone else to do my wedding photos, and will continue to recommend her work to others.

DO NOT USE MEGAN QUIST PHOTOGRAPHY

I hate doing this, because Megan is very talented and was great the day of the wedding-its after the fact that everything went downhill.

Megan lost well over half of our wedding photos, and waited to tell me this until I inquired about the status of our photos three months after the wedding. The fact that Megan lost our photos is upsetting, but mistakes happen. If she had been really apologetic and had done everything she could have to make the situation better I would not be posting this. Megan was extremely difficult to deal with, and would only communicate with me via email. She was also fairly un-apologetic and was put-off when I was clearly upset. We only just got our wedding photos, and got married over six months ago. This would have been unacceptable even if she had not lost our wedding photos.

I'm sure other people have had a good experience with Megan, I just wanted to share mine.

When I saw the pictures on Megan's website I thought oh boy I will probably not be able to afford her, because they were so amazing! But then I checked out her prices and they are relatively reasonable! We had her do our engagement pictures, they were so good, I couldn't stop looking at them! On the wedding day she was very efficient and so amazing at working with my 2 year old flower girl!!! And everyone else for that matter, she had a plan and stuck with it and followed through with all of my weird/different ideas. I have already referred her to a friend who also hired her for her wedding! I can't wait to have her photograph our new family in the years to come she is truly talented!!

We hired Megan to do our wedding photos after she was recommended to us by a friend. She is a wonderful photographer and artist!! We still have our wedding albums out on a shelf so that we can look at them often--two years later! We just had her do family photos for us again today and are excited to recommend her! Every bit of our experiences with Megan have been pleasant; from initial contact to planning the wedding photos through the ceremony and receiving the product after the wedding. High quality images, responsive service, very professional, great value for cost and very flexible. We hope to use Megan for years to record our family's milestones!!

Megan did our wedding in 2006. We loved our pictures! We had so many to choose from. She has a great eye for artistic shots that I had no idea were even possible. She recently did photos for our baby who was born this past summer... its nice to have a photographer that we know and trust to capture the evolution of our family!

Megan made our wedding pictures feel relaxed and enjoyable. She offered creative ideas and captured the moment as we interacted naturally. As I look back at our wedding album, I can remember the day perfectly. I love the detailed shots of our shoes, wedding programs, going away car, and flowers. Everything goes by so quickly during the big day, that I know I wouldn't remember it all clearly if I didn't have these thoughtful and professional photos to look at. Megan captured my dress, John and I, the wedding party, and the candid moments so fluidly. Megan listened to our requests and followed through. Megan is very easy to get along with and you'll find she has a very calming effect on what can be a stressful day at times. You will LOVE your wedding pictures and won't be able to thank Megan enough!
