Congratulations on taking a great step to capture your family’s photographs! My goal as a photographer is to capture life’s most precious moments while keeping the process easy and efficient. Photography is more than just images, it’s a real way to keep memories alive. Not only do you deserve beautiful images, you also deserve an amazing photographic experience. So what is the portrait process?

Session booking

Booking your session is a simple process! The first step is to reach out to me via Facebook, Instagram, email, or the contact form on this website. Let me know what type of session you're planning and the best way to contact you. Once I receive your inquiry, I will forward over a simple questionnaire to gather more information about you.

Complete the quick questionnaire and we will determine the best date and time for your session. I will send you a portrait contract and a retainer invoice for 25% of the session cost. Once both items are completed, you will officially be booked! 


Planning Your Session


Now you’re booked and the fun can begin! Planning your session with me is a personalized and enjoyable experience! Where will we photograph? What outfits will you wear? Will there be props? Whether you have these elements predetermined or you’re thinking about them for the first time – I will be there every step of the way to assist where I can!

Every Megan Weckter Photography client receives helpful tips and tricks for styling their session. I will also provide vendor recommendations should you want to pamper yourself with professional hair and makeup services.


The Session

The day has arrived and it’s time for your session! I believe that to truly offer a personalized experience, your session date should simply be yours. Therefore, we do not book multiple sessions back-to-back in a single day. You will receive our high-energy, well-rested, positive attitudes and the entire session will be about celebrating you!

Worried about inclement weather? Don’t be! I carefully watch the weather a week leading up to your session. Should the forecast not be in our favor, I will reach out to let you know as soon as possible so we can plan for a rain date.

The Big Reveal

Each photograph is carefully edited to account for exposure, color, warmth, and more. I provide basic retouch services to remove blemishes and flyaway hairs, as needed. Once I have finished editing your session, I will provide you a link to an online gallery where you will be able to view, download, share, and purchase your photos.

For most sessions, a print release is also delivered with your final gallery. This means that you will have the capability to print your photos wherever and whenever you choose. For high quality prints, you will also have the ability to purchase photos directly through your online gallery, which is connected to my professional printing lab!


I have developed a single package with standard items that clients generally want in a session. Why overthink things if you don’t have to? Clients have the option to add on additional time for an extra cost, but the package items remain the same. I have found that by making this process honest, easy, and efficient, we cut down on confusion and keep to what matters most -- capturing beautiful images and memories.

"Megan goes above and beyond to make sure everyone is relaxed while enjoying their photography session. Not only are her photos are quality work, she even got my non smilers to laugh and enjoy themselves! Our photos were the most beautiful photos we have ever had taken. Thank you for amazing pictures and precious family memories!" - Charity

"From the moment I messaged Megan asking about a family photo session it was a great experience! She was so professional and quick to get back to me. It was a joy to plan the session with her from choosing a location to help with wardrobe choices. The day of the shoot was great and she and her husband made us feel very comfortable. We received our photos very quickly and are so grateful to have this time in our lives captured in beautiful photos! I would definitely recommend Megan Weckter Photography." - Kathryn

"Megan immediately put me at ease and we had such a blast! She has the best eye for unique shots and I felt like I spent the whole morning laughing. So thankful for the talent of this woman, for all the laughs, and for the endless "I'm telling you Sara, if you make that face again I'm taking a picture of it" comments." - Sara
