I discovered my passion for wedding photography when I was just 17 years old. I started Meredith McKee Photography in my college dorm room knowing that I wanted to make a life out of documenting people in love. My passion is to create truly joyful, authentic images that capture the real emotions of your wedding day. I’ll meet with you in person or have a glass of wine with you over FaceTime. I’ll share a series of questionnaires with you because I want to get to know you as a couple & better understand what makes you click. I keep in touch during the long months of planning to help in any way I can. I share an extensive wedding day guide to help make decisions about everything from planning your engagement session to utilizing the best light on your wedding day.
My couples say that I overflow with energy & fun – they describe me as responsive, efficient with things like family formals, and quick to respond to any and all questions. I build a relationship of trust with my couples that allows me to do my best work, and for them to relax, and enjoy the day. At the end of a wedding day, my cheeks hurt from smiling so much. Because I have spent the time genuinely getting to know you, I share in this joy with you, and relish in this epic celebration of love.
Growing up in Tennessee and Virginia, my style has a classic Southern charm – a sweetness to my images, a look that is not overly processed, but timeless like a beautiful string of pearls. I combine this aesthetic with my love of the outdoors and the rustic Pacific Northwest to create a look all my own.
One of my favorite things about being a wedding photographer is establishing forever clients (just like the Kish Family pictured below). I have had the opportunity to photograph dozens of babies, and watched my couples’ families grow over the years and that truly makes my heart burst!
