WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER BASED IN SOMERSET
Documentary Wedding Photography
B E H I N D T H E L E N S
Hello, I'm so happy you found yourself here. My name is Meg, and I am a Wedding & Family Photographer, based in Somerset, in the South of England.
To sum myself up, I’m a creative perfectionist that absolutely adores photography. My style is documentary & reportage...in other words, it is important to me that the photographs I take are utterly honest and artistic and my shooting and editorial tones follow a natural, and romantic approach.
My photographic journey started at around the age of 10, when I was given my first digital camera (thanks Dad) and I was captivated immediately. Whilst studying photography I was able to get to grips with the basics and learnt how to develop my own film, which I loved!
At university I went on to study the History of Film & Design where I learnt a great deal about the progression of photography and found it extremely inspiring.
A short while after graduating university, my partner and I went travelling. I got to use my camera every day and thrived at the challenge of capturing such beautfiul and new landcapes/cities. I was utterly hooked and knew this was the career direction I needed to go in.
I went on to work at a retouching firm, which got my foot in the door and I was able to learn new skills whilst having the freedom to "second shoot" for other photographers, which was utterly invaluable. Eventually I became so busy with my own bookings that "Megan McAdam Photography" was able to go full time!
The best part of my job is that I get to be the storyteller to so many beautiful occasions - everyone you love together all in one room - it doesn't get much better than that!
Getting to know my couples is key and enables me to capture them at their absolute best with the aim to capture all the raw emotions, personality and timeless moments. My goal is to have minimum impact on your day (i.e stealth mode) and create maximum results for you and your family.

"Meg recently photographed my daughter's engagement celebration in our garden. The photos she took were really beautiful and captured the day so well. She was very discreet so family did not feel in any way unable to relax. Meg is delightful to work with and her quiet confidence is very reassuring." - Ruth Divall.
"Meg is not only a phenomenally talented photographer but also one of the friendliest photographers I've met! She was a dream to work with, so professional yet friendly and relaxed. Has a real keen eye on how to achieve visually stunning images whilst making you feel at ease! 100 % recommend her for absolutely any photography you need!" - Laura.
“Meg - thank you so much for our wedding photos - we love them. Thank you for being part of our special day, you managed to capture so many moments that we loved on the day so it was lovely to relive them through the photos. We had the most wonderful day and have realised that we barely saw you which means you definitely did your job very well!!” - Natalie & Alex.

When I'm not photographing wonderful people, I'm usually up at sunrise exploring the world with my camera, walking on the beach & sunning my face (I feel so lucky to live near the sea), nattering whilst sipping a sweet cup of tea, cooing at dashcunds, on Pinterest searching for any recipe containing chocolate spread, making a new list and planning my next adventure with my loved ones.
