hi! we are megan + corrigan
We are best friends who met over a decade ago and have been working together and dating for over half of those years! We currently live in two areas: Toronto and Kawartha Lakes. When we are not working, we are in Kawartha Lakes at our first home, our cottage. A cottage that Corrigans dad built with his own hands and it holds a very dear place in our hearts. This is where we go to feel free, happy, relaxed and to refresh. Deep down, we still have a soft spot for the city and the hustle + bustle it brings to our lives (and all the amazing food and beer, let’s be honest) so we have held on to our apartment in the city for this reason. When we are not cottaging, traveling, eating or drinking, we are usually cuddled with one of our 4 fur babies (we have 2 dogs and 2 cats and if it was up to megan, we would have a farm turned animal rescue with ALL the animals).
I come from a pretty creative background filled with so many things across the board. I went to school for Fine Art, then Graphic Design, then was a Creative Director but all the while, I was photographing on the side and eventually it was like “why the heck am I working for other people at a job I hate, when I can be photographing stories for amazing people and working for myself”. Now it’s been over 7 years and I couldn’t be happier with my decision and to see the growth that has happened within my business.
For years I was a graphic designer (and still dabble), while I pursued my love for photography. I then spent a few years as a Creative Director for Photographers Without Borders where I was able to see parts of the world, with my camera, I may never have seen. Now when I am not capturing weddings and life events, I am fortunate enough to be a Digital Photography teacher where I teach students of all levels how to get started in the big old world of photography.
On your day, you can guarantee I will cry if anyone else does. I will also laugh a lot, guide you if you need it, and act like a goof to get you giggling.
If you thought megs background was all over the map, well, you haven’t heard about mine! I consider myself a creative person but there were points in my professional career where I thought I had to be doing other things so I have been in Sales, Carpentry, Television, a band and more. While doing all of these things, I was always doing photography on the side but never knew how to do more with it or had the confidence to do so. Until I met megs…
My background in Videography (for television) really helped with the beginning stages of photography and since I have really grown a love for having the camera in my hands 24/7. I love being a fly on the wall and capturing those candid emotional moments or those moments for you guys that you may miss.
On your day, I will be a fly but I will also guide you when you need it or want guidance. I won’t cry as much as Megs and have been known to be goofy and entertain for those candid images.
our style + approach...
Choosing a photographer(s) you get along with and love as a human, before as a photographer, is so important. We will be talking a lot and spending a lot of time together so... let's make sure we love each other! Let's grab a pint or a coffee or jump on skype and make sure we are the best fit for your day.
Understanding a photographers style and approach to weddings (and other sessions) is also important. If you are looking for something a little more traditional and posed, we may not be the right fit for you. But if you are looking for natural emotion, candid moments, creative portraits and a photographer(s) who will blend in with your group and document your day or session as it unfolds, then we are your people! I think the best way to describe our style in one word is: storyteller. We will blend in and get those sneaky shots but we will also take control when we need too (if you need guidance through your portraits we can help a lot, we will help keep family organized for family portraits, we will keep your bridal party in line if you need us too).
