What inspired you to become a wedding photographer?
My journey as a wedding photographer was ignited by a deep passion for Alberta’s breathtaking landscapes and the incredible people that live here. Years ago, while working as a medic and traveling across this beautiful province, I was fortunate to witness the wonders of nature firsthand. I noticed a lynx outside my window and unfortunately my iPhone just couldn’t capture what I saw. I vowed in that moment to buy a professional camera the next time I headed back to town.
During my work shifts, I dedicated my time to studying the technical aspects of photography, honing my skills and knowledge. On my days off, I embarked on countless adventures, venturing into the wild to put into practice what I had learned. As my portfolio grew, my images began to attract attention and recognition. It was during this time that I had the privilege of collaborating with remarkable individuals who encouraged me to incorporate the human element into my landscape photography.
Once I started capturing love stories within these majestic mountain backdrops, it became an obsession. It became clear that documenting the emotions, connections, and cherished moments of couples against the backdrop of these stunning landscapes was my true calling. Eager to pursue this passion further, I began shooting weddings near Edmonton and eventually made the move to Jasper, where I could merge my two greatest loves: the Canadian Rockies and capturing love stories.
Today, I am grateful to call Jasper my home and playground, as I have the privilege of turning my passion into my profession. Being able to witness and preserve the essence of love within the awe-inspiring setting of the mountains is an incredible honor and a constant source of inspiration. Every day, I wake up excited to embark on this remarkable journey, capturing the beauty and emotional connections that unfold during mountain wedding days and elopements.
How would you describe your photography style?
Our photography style is rich and timeless, showcasing the beauty of Jasper National Park alongside you, our clients. We understand that nature (and/or adventure) plays a significant role in your wedding day, and we strive to capture the essence of this extraordinary setting. Working with us is like hanging out with friends – we create a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere, ensuring that you feel at ease in front of the camera.
How do you ensure that your clients feel comfortable and relaxed during the photo shoot?
At Megan Posein Photography, we prioritize building a genuine connection with our clients to ensure their comfort and create an enjoyable experience throughout the photo shoot. Our process begins with a Zoom call, where we have an opportunity to get to know one another on a personal level. This virtual conversation allows us to dive into your vision, understand what is truly important to you, and familiarize ourselves with your unique personalities.
By establishing this initial connection, we create a foundation of trust and friendship. When we finally meet in person, it feels more like spending time with familiar faces rather than being in the presence of strangers. This relaxed atmosphere helps you feel at ease, allowing your genuine emotions to shine through and resulting in more authentic and natural photographs.
We recognize that many people may feel unsure about posing or how to stand in front of the camera. Rest assured, we’ve got you covered. During the shoot, we’ll provide guidance and walk you through various poses that flatter your individual style and complement the stunning surroundings. However, our approach goes beyond rigid instructions. We believe in capturing the organic moments and genuine interactions, so we offer prompts and cues to help you flow naturally throughout the session. This allows for a comfortable and effortless experience, ensuring that your true personalities shine through in every photo.
To further enhance your comfort, we understand the importance of being prepared for various weather conditions. Whether it’s a sunny day, a gentle rain shower, or a snow-filled landscape, we will guide you on what to bring and how to dress appropriately. This thoughtful preparation ensures that you feel comfortable and confident, allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the moment without worrying about the elements.
How do you ensure that you capture all of the important moments on the wedding day?
We understand the significance of every moment on your wedding day, and we are committed to capturing them all. With our extensive experience in shooting numerous weddings, we have a deep understanding of how the day unfolds, allowing us to be well-prepared for each significant moment.
To ensure seamless coverage, we engage in thorough communication with our clients. We discuss the wedding timeline well in advance, enabling us to familiarize ourselves with the schedule and plan accordingly. By being aware of the sequence of events, we can anticipate crucial moments and position ourselves strategically to capture them with precision and artistry.
We recognize that every wedding is unique, and we take pride in offering packages that provide the option to hire both myself and my partner as a team. This duo approach guarantees that no precious moment goes unnoticed. By working in tandem, we can capture each instance from multiple perspectives, providing a diverse and comprehensive collection of images that beautifully depict the essence of your special day.
From the intimate exchanges between the couple to the heartfelt speeches, joyful dances, and all the spontaneous moments in between, our goal is to preserve the full spectrum of emotions and create a visual narrative that encapsulates the essence of your wedding day.
What is your favorite part of the wedding day and why?
One of the most cherished moments for me during a wedding day is the immediate afterglow from the ceremony. As the couple takes their first steps together as newlyweds, a remarkable transformation occurs. It’s a magical instance when all the stress and anticipation dissolves, and a wave of pure joy and emotion envelops the couple. Surrounding them is an outpouring of love and support from their friends and family.
During this time, the couple finds themselves in a state of serenity, fully immersed in the celebration of their union. This is when I witness the most genuine and authentic expressions, as the couple lets their true selves shine through. There’s a sense of vulnerability and pure happiness that radiates from them, creating a captivating atmosphere for photography.
Capturing these moments is an absolute privilege, as the emotions are raw and the love between the couple is palpable. The resulting photographs are a testament to the genuine connection and the profound bond shared by the newlyweds. These images encapsulate the beauty of unguarded moments and preserve the essence of their love story, allowing them to relive and cherish this significant chapter in their lives for years to come. 🙂
