I'M MEGAN

During the day I capture go-getter seniors, madly-in-love couples and weddings where the dance floor is packed all night long but at night you can find me cuddling on the couch with my husband and our two adorable pups.

OUR
WEDDING

Also known as the messy bun wearin’ blonde behind it all here at Megan Snitker Photography. I started this business fresh out of college when I realized the corporate ladder wasn’t for me. I’m obsessed with Bob Ross, my two pups (#ProudDogMom), vanilla ice cream, frozen margaritas & I firmly believe unicorn onesies should be the new business casual.

MEET MEGAN

the girl with the camera

Shortly after college graduation, I got my first "big girl" job. I was one of the lucky ones who landed a job as a graphic designer straight out of college. I was so thankful, even though it was a lot closer to home than I had planned. So close in fact that I moved back in with my parents while I found a place to rent.

I loved what I was doing but soon I realized that a windowless cube wasn't the life for me. I craved a day where I could make my own schedule. I yearned for a career that would have enough variety that I wouldn't get bored. But mostly, I needed a job that would fill my heart with so much joy that I didn't dread waking up on Monday.

THE GUY THAT CHANGED IT ALL

THE REAL WORLD

I didn't know what I was going to do, but I knew I couldn't keep living like this forever. And then I met a guy. Y'all this guy was like the feeling of fresh air entering your lungs after you held your breathe as long as possible underwater. He showed me how great the world could be if open my eyes. He inspired me to take the leap and go after what I wanted in my life!

So I started educating myself and learning everything I could about photography. I knew it was the one thing that truly brought me joy. I knew it wouldn't be easy. I knew people would judge me. I knew people would be hesitant to trust a new photographer, but I did it anyway.

THE TRUTH ABOUT GOING FOR IT

MEET

THE ONE

I spent six straight months reading, learning and absorbing as much information as physically possible. Then I finally built up the nerve to put it out into the world! That first year was nerve-racking, stressful but more than anything BEYOND AMAZING!

Before every session, I was a bundle of nerves but I would leave with a heart so full it was impossible to ignore. There is never a day that goes by that I am not eternally grateful for those first few clients that trusted me when I first started out. Shoutout to my main girl, Danielle, for trusting someone who didn't even have a portfolio yet!

WHEN IT RAINS IT POURS

GOING ALL IN

After that first year things really started to take off! We started booking wedding and filling our calendar, we started our Snitker Spokesmodel team, we got not one but two puppers and to wrap it all up, I got engaged to the guy that pushed me to go after my dreams.

Now, I'm a wedding and portrait photographer who lives just three minutes from her childhood home. I’m living a life fueled by a passion for helping others see themselves as I see them. And as if my job wasn’t awesome enough, I get to do this along side my husband (and our two pups)!!! So much of our story has led us to where we are today and for that I am eternally grateful.
