Kind Words - Megan Peirona Photography


        Megan photographed our daughter's wedding last week in Lake Tahoe. I have been competing at the Masters level in camera club competition for many years so I guess my expectations were very high. Megan's engagement photo shoot had already impressed me so I knew she would be able to produce good images. An engagement shoot is however a controlled situation. How Megan would handle the stress of an event with a tight timeline, uncontrollable light and so much expectations was still an unknown. First thing I appreciated was how discreet Megan and Kate, her assistant, were during the ceremony and later the reception. They didn't miss a beat yet never interfered with the flow of the event or with the guests enjoyment. The family photo session after the ceremony was when my appreciation became admiration. As a photographer I could detect what Megan had in mind to take advantage of the available light. I remember thinking 'wow that's a tough light situation and a gusty move but if she pulls it the result will be amazing'. Well she not only nailed the backlighting perfectly, the photos are stunning. The way Megan handled the dance photos was another example of her love for the beautiful and spectacular effect of backlighting. As for the photos... we couldn't have expected a more beautiful collection of images; perfect composition, perfect exposure, and amazing capture of so many 'special moments'. Megan's photos captured connections between the event attendants. None of the images are boring snapshots, all have something special. According to Ansel Adams the key to being a photographer as opposed to a snapshooter is the ability to pre visualize images. This means the photographer foresees the result he/she wants to achieve before pressing the shutter release, it requires a perfect knowledge of equipment and how the light works. Megan has this knowledge and the result is 'ART'. Thank you Megan for your outstanding work!                                                                                                                                                      


       Megan is a natural! She is also the most genuinely kind person. She organized a surprise engagement shoot with my fiancé and friends and came fully prepared. She was always eager to respond to any questions and even provided us with pictures the same day! We cannot say enough good things about Megan and her professionalism. She knows when to take charge but also when to let the natural movements take their course. She has a creative eye for angles and backdrops and I am extremely happy with the results!

       Megan was wonderful to work with! She did our daughter's senior photos and our family photos. Her professionalism and quality of work is outstanding. The end result was beautiful photos that we will treasure forever. Thank you Megan.


       Megan is amazing at what she does. My fiancé and I did our engagement shoot with her and we love every single one of our pictures. She made us feel comfortable during the shoot (Neither of us like to be in the photo spotlight) and we immediately relaxed for the pictures. Prior to the shoot, Megan asked about my vision for the photos and did so much research about finding the perfect spot to recreate our vision. We were so impressed with the quality of the photos and the time in which she got us the files, I would recommend Megan for any looking to get pictures taken. We are using her for our wedding in June!
