HI I'M MEAGAN!
I'm a photographer, artist, mom, wife and entrepreneur. I've been taking photos professionally for about 9 years now. My husband Justin and I have two beautiful little boys together, Abel who is 9, and Liam who is 7 (shown above aren't they the cutest?!). In my spare time, I love to travel, camp, spend time outdoors, paint, and charcoal sketch! Justin and I love video games and I'm a huge fan of Netflix. I have just about binged watched almost every TV series possible while editing. I truly love my life; I love working with my husband and to be given the opportunity to chase after my goals and live my dream..
HERES THE THING
Memories are everything to me. I lost my father at a young age, and it took me a really long time to figure this out, but about half way through my career I noticed that photographing REAL moments, REAL memories (and not just simple posed studio images) is my absolute passion. Photography to me is not about props or staged environments. To me it's capturing true smiles, real laughter and love. There is nothing that makes me happier than providing my clients with a keepsake of photographs that are true and natural memories.
HI I'M JUSTIN!
I am the second shooter for Meagan Sharum Photography during events and weddings. Believe it or not, I had no idea how life changing and important photography would be for me when I started working with my lovely wife. I started out assisting Meagan by carrying her equipment and helping out with lighting - after about 4 years of the best slave labor of my life, I joined her behind the lens.
Luckily, Meg and I have very different shooting styles. She's my little photo sniper, and I'll be the goof on the dance floor tearing it up, and getting those great wide angle shots of you and your guests having the time of their lives.
So where did I start? Theatre. I have over 6 years combined theatrical lighting experience, so it was an easy switch to looking at lighting through a camera. I LOVE deep, dramatic shadows and interesting angles in my photos.
As my wife mentioned, I am a huge gamer. I can nerd it out with the best of them - but trust me, I'm super cool! I also love meeting new people! I'm quite the social butterfly, and I could hold a conversation with a curtain if it would only talk back, haha. I am incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to take photos for a living, and even more so to be able to do it with my bride.
