"Let me preface this by saying that I worked at a photography studio thought high school - and I know from experience that you can truly only get the pictures that capture the special moments from someone truly special and gifted. Meg was that person for us.
Meg was SO fun and such a wonderful part of our special day. She made not only myself but everyone involved in our wedding so relaxed. It truly was like having your friend photograph your wedding. She was so open to new concepts and always had great and creative ideas. My husband gave all of his groomsman Louisville slugger bats with each of their names engraved on them - so we made an impromptu stop at a baseball field in a local park between the ceremony and reception. It was so fun - and the pictures really captured who we were and the atmosphere of our special day.
I am constantly getting compliments on our wedding pictures. Not only were they beautiful but Meg herself got them to us so fast - it truly was perfect! I highly highly recommend Meg for any of your photography needs!"

"Meg did our engagement photos, along with her assistant, and we were thrilled with the results. Both of them were great, and her assistant was an awesome addition to our session. We were so pleased that we booked Meg for our wedding photography as well. We had a serious family situation that caused us to decide to move our wedding date up several months. Meg went entirely out of her way to photograph our wedding day on very short notice. Our wedding photos are out-of-this-world amazing. We also recently had some holiday shots done and can't wait to see the results! My husband and I always feel so comfortable with Meg and confident in her abilities. She will do whatever necessary to get the perfect shot, and has a great eye for capturing special moments. You can relax and trust her, she really knows what she's doing. Meg is very easy to talk to, so don't hesitate to tell her exactly what you want or what you are thinking, she'll make it work!"

"Meg was absolutely fabulous - low stress and high quality! (Please read the whole review because it matters!!) The package we chose for our wedding day included an engagement photo session, which gave us a great opportunity to meet Meg and get to know her before the big day! We were so comfortable with her and she was always so pleasant. Meg went above and beyond to get us all the great shots we didn't know we wanted - she's climbed onto roofs, laid down on concrete for the best angle. She'll push your feet's limit for photos (and you'll realize your shoes weren't that comfortable at all) but when she gives you hundreds of beautifully angled, lighted, and both posed and candid photos, there is nothing about uncomfortable shoes that you'll remember (except that you wished you could have been more gracious about it). Meg took amazing photos inside a 100+ year old church that can be a bear to photograph due to its construction prior to the invention of the lightbulb (almost literally), but the photos came out great and highlighted all the beautiful architecture and paintings in the church and made us look like we had a royal wedding. Meg had a second photographer who was a star as well - we were able then to have one photographer with the guys getting ready and Meg with us (bridal party) to get all the desired shots - especially that the bridal party got ready at the church and the guys at the hotel. The photographers were obviously extremely invested in getting great shots - not just talking the talk, and they would even wait for the sun to disappear behind clouds to relieve the darkening shadows or have us turn 6 inches to get a more flattering angle. We loved working with them because they seemed to love to work with us! They were flexible and stayed an additional half hour, plus one song because they said it was "too good to not take pictures of" and they were prompt at the start of our time. They had no problems splitting up or following us to multiple locations for photos. They came to Akron from Wooster and made us feel like we were a priority. These are photos we will love to look at and show off for the rest of our lives. We look forward to future celebrations and life milestones to be able to work with Meg again! Thanks for capturing the memories!"

"Meg was and is awesome! She was very quick to answer our call and meet with us. We also had a small budget and she was very flexible with time frames. She also is a fabulous photographer!!! The pictures were beautiful. She also sent us a link to our photos quickly! Her second shooter also did a great job. We were so happy we chose to work with Meg"

"Meg did my wedding photos and has also done photos of my daughter. She is so sweet and easy to work with. She is an amazing photographer and all of our photos she has taken come out amazing. Her new studio is so cute and versatile. Her prices are very reasonable, especially considering the quality of work. Our family will continue to use Meg for any professional photos."

"I cannot rave enough about my excellent experience having Meg capture my engagement photos and wedding day! She was so detailed, responsive, calm, encouraging, helpful and just all around wonderful throughout the entire process. I received my wedding photos and was absolutely floored by how beautiful they turned out and I can't express my gratitude that I'll have them to cherish and share for the rest of my life."

"Meg is seriously dedicated to her work. She was absolutely phenomenal from beginning to end, look no further for a highly skilled, easy to work with photographer! She communicated well and often, and the expertise she has is unmatched. Not only did she do such a phenomenal job with ideas for photos and making sure everything I wanted was captured, but she was so incredibly supportive throughout the entire process. We will absolutely be recommending Meg to our family and friends, and will be so happy to use her services in the future."

"My wedding was on Sept. 20th, 2014. I had my wedding at Quailcrest Farms. I found out about Meg through my wedding planner. She told me how great of a photographer she is and I would absolutely love her work! I called Meg the next day! Meg was very easy going and very friendly! We first met at a beautiful park she knew about, it was where we took our engagement pictures. We brought my future in-laws along and they loved her too! She made us all laugh and we got comfortable with Meg really quick! You can tell how much passion she has in capturing the perfect photo, she was exactly what I was looking for!! I spoke with Meg prior to our wedding day and let her know that I wanted to take certain poses that I saw on Pinterest, she was up for it! She listens to you, I loved that! Our wedding day she worked with another great photographer and we got such amazing photos from our special day. Meg even stayed a little after our time frame we had chosen to capture group photos of all my family and friends! That meant the world to me and I will always have great memories from our day thanks to Meg Bowman!"
