Natural light wedding and Lifestyle Photographer serving california + Beyond

hello

say hello

megan helm

I've been capturing love stories for couples and families in California for the past 5 years. When I began this business, I had a camera and a passion for making people feel good about themselves. Honestly, that's what I love the most!

That "WOW" in your eyes as they light up seeing you the way I see you is what I love most.

When I’m not taking pictures, I enjoy spending time with my hubs and our fur children, Colt + Fitz.

We love to camp and I love cooking up new dinner recipes. Probably a good thing since my husband would eat chips and salsa for every meal if I couldn't cook!

If you’re here, you’re probably looking for a photographer, and the truth is, anyone with a camera can click a shutter and call themselves a photographer.

I offer my clients a memorable experience outside just the pose, point and click. If you’re looking for someone who will invest in your memories, get to know the real you, pull a smile out of the most stubborn kiddos and cuddle your new baby then friends, you have come to the right place!

Photo Love

My love for photos began with my desire to be creative. My mom always made photo albums and I always got the leftover stickers to make my own albums. When I finally got my hands on my first camera, I couldn't put it down!

college years

My college girlfriends really encouraged me to continue photography. After taking senior portraits for several of my friends, I set up a Facebook page, made a simple logo and website and saved my graduation money to buy a $400 Costco camera.

just starting out

That Costco camera wasn't going to be enough to get my work where I needed it. 
I started offering free shoots and giveaways to build my portfolio. After investing thousands of dollars into my gear and countless hours into my photography education, I'm proud to see just how much I've grown over the years!

What I offer is more than images, but a true experience to authentically tell your unique love story.

While it's important that you love my photos, it's more important that we click; no pun intended. When we feel like old friends, it's so much easier for me to tell your story, and for you to be yourself!

Let’s be friends!

It's more important to click with people, than to click a shutter.

I do not even know where to start. Right from the beginning Megan was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had. Even though we never met her until the big day, I felt that we were already in good hands. On the big day, meeting Megan felt like we were meeting an old friend. She made us feel safe and excited. She would tease us by showing us some of the pictures she would take and it was jaw dropping what she would show us.

The final product of the pictures were stunning! If I had to say exactly what the pictures were like I would say breathtakingly fairy-like. A dream come true. She truly captures the essence of the moment. Very organic and yet simplistic.

We are happy with our entire experience and she worth it all! Thank you Megan for giving us everlasting memories of our love!

We were referred to Megan through a mutual friend and wow are we glad we found her! So professional and talented. We’ve booked her for our entire wedding package- engagement shots, wedding day photo & video, and we’ve been so impressed.

She is communicative, so easy to get a hold of. During the shoot she made us feel at ease and listened to our feedback. We received our pictures earlier than promised and they were gorgeous!

Excited for our wedding day and so glad we picked Megan to capture it!

There aren't enough words to describe how passionate and professional this woman is about photography! She clearly has a love for capturing breathtaking moments, and throughout my whole experience, Megan was on top of everything, and was so nice and professional. It was so hot on my wedding day, yet she still tried her hardest to make ALL of our shots look the best ever.  Not only is she an amazingly talented photographer, with her crisp, yet warm style, but she is also a really positive, genuine person, and a real lucky charm to have around on your wedding day! My husband was really nervous before our first look, and Megan completely changed that with her warm personality. If you are looking for great photos and an even better experience, look no further than Megan Helm Photography!

Megan was our photographer and we could not have asked for a better person. She was so sweet and professional, and got shots from throughout the day that I never would have even dreamed of getting. She was also more then willing to do a "trash the dress" shoot with my husband and I in the ocean, which is going above and beyond for what she needed to do.

I would highly recommend Megan to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion. My husband and I love all our photos from her and we are still amazed by them every time we see them. Thanks Megan!
