Low-stress wedding photography; done your way.
A mixture of creative, artistic, traditional, and candid styles are used throughout the day to capture the many angles of real emotion and all beauty you designed your day to include. To make sure your day goes smoothly, I will work with you before hand to organize a timeline and shot list to ensure we catch all that you envision.
All packages include a hard covered proof book with all of your images, prints, a master disk to print from, and 3 months of online proofing. Finished album packages are available.
I work with a "creative orchestration" theory versus the traditional "stand in a line and smile" format that has been an industry standard for decades. This allows you to be yourself and have a lot more fun with your attendants, family and friends. Your day should be one to remember, in images, both creatively and emotionally. Read less

Meg was without a doubt the best decision I made during my wedding planning. The pictures she and her assistant took were fantastic, and being able to see the pictures a few days after the wedding was great. Meg got all the pictures we requested and had some creative ideas of her own. She really knew our venue well (Castle Farms), so we got the best use out of our time since she knew exactly where to go. Not only were the pictures great, but so was just working with Meg. She helped me getting ready and even fixing my bustle when it came off during the reception. I don’t know what I would have done without Meg; she really took the stress off me so I could really enjoy the day.

Meg was great! She was more put together than some of my bridesmaids. She kept us on track and encouraged my bridesmaids to move a little faster while getting ready so they could get me into my dress.

She was a savior and took a lot of stress off me that day.

I haven't seen all my pictures yet but she did a sneak peak and they are amazing. Can't suggest her enough

Working with Meg from Paxton Photography was a wonderful experience. I am so pleased with our wedding pictures. Meg and her assistant both were extremely professional, friendly and efficient. I had a long list of photos and group shots that we really wanted to capture and she accomplished each one beautifully and in a timely manner so we could also enjoy the wedding. Before the wedding she asked me to gather wedding photos to see what style I preferred. She reviewed all of this thoroughly and not only captured the style, but also specific unique shots that I loved. We have so many fun and creative photos to choose from now that capture our wedding day. Also as an added perk, Meg not only was a great photographer but also repined a lock of hair that was driving me crazy before the wedding and she fixed my bustle when it broke (i.e. got stepped on). Overall a great experience, if we hadn’t planned the wedding from out of town I would book her again!

LOVE LOVE LOVE Meg!!!!!!!!

Meg met with us before the event to discuss ideas, offer advice, set a timeline and had plenty of helpful hints. She was prompt in replying to emails in the days leading up to the event. Meg is a take charge type of personality and that is exactly what I needed on my wedding day. She led the photography and told everyone where they needed to be and at what time. If you are planning on being a "bridezilla" or a micro-manager on your wedding day, then she may not be the one for you. I would encourage you though, to let go and to let her do what she does best- manage people and take AMAZING photographs. She listened to ALL of my ideas and took all of the photos that I wanted, but also improved on my ideas, did a lot of her own stuff and thought up some creative and fun pictures for myself, my husband and our wedding party.

Meg brought an assistant with her on our wedding day and I love having the different views and perceptions that were captured. I am so thankful that he was there with her!

I promptly received my sneak peek photos a few days after (she must not sleep) and had my full hardcover bound album with over 1000 photos and a digital CD that accompanied about 1.5 months after the date. Shes awesome!!!!!

I really cannot express how happy I am that I chose Meg to photograph my wedding day. I am more than pleased with her professionalism, creativity, promptness, value and the quality of the photos! I would absolutely recommend her to anyone that is getting married in the Traverse City, MI area.

And if you read this, Meg, THANK YOU A MILLION TIMES!!!!!!!!!

Ask for Meg, she is the owner. We interviewed 4 photographers before selecting her. Looking at her work, she has amazing artistic ability and turned out to be really great to work with. My husband and I aren't from the area we were married, and she had several ideas for our pictures. Many guests commented on how you hardly saw her, yet when we were finished, we had about 2,000 photos to view. Many people have complimented us on our photos, and my boss said they were the best wedding pictures he had ever seen. She really was great to work with. Also, the morning of the wedding, while the girls were getting their hair done she offered to grab food (even though I had bought cheese, fruit, crackers and champagne) for us, claiming we needed protein, haha! She also went to the store and bought the men Gatorade to go with their lunch, as they forgot to buy drinks. She was very, very accommodating and amazing to work with.

Meg is not only a photographer; at my wedding she acted as a seamstress, organizer, floral arranger, and overall wedding cordinator. She helped one of my groomsman when his collar was too tight by re-sewing the bottons so that he could breathe, within MINUTES of my wedding, without me knowing about it and stressing! She was fabulous and I would highly reccomend her, especially to someone without a wedding cordinator. My pictures are beautiful and the value was incredible for the amount I spent on them.

Meg is very laid back, and takes great pictures. She does a combination of standard photos, as well as "action" shots too. She went anywhere I needed her to go to get the job done. I had a great experience with her!
