Hey! Its me, Meg :)
If you don’t know me personally already, I’d like to Introduce myself and tell you a little bit about me!
I started Sharum Photography- (formally Meagan Sharum Photography) right after my first son was born in 2007 in Houston, TX. I was a stay at home mom to my children at the time which I loved… but I felt lost. I’ll admit I was a horrible student in school but I always had a passion for art and photography and had been a goal oriented, driven artistic individual. Being so, I decided to pick up a former job I had worked at before I had my children.
I worked at a commercial chain portrait studio.. I was given little to no time to get to know my clients before hand Was reprimanded for being too creative at work, worked hard for little money in a negative life sucking environment.
SO, I decided you know what? I can do this on my own!.. and quit!
Over countless you tube videos, online workshops, note taking, and questioning myself “Can I do this!?” and all the “What if’s”… I decided to start my own photography business.
Through-out the years my husband Justin (aka best friend) started out assisting me by carrying equipment and helping out with lighting. He fell in love with the business just as much as I did and picked up a camera along side me. With his outstanding hard work included and becoming a husband and wife team, our business name changed to Sharum Photography. :)
It’s been well over 10 years now that we have been in business, We have shot countless photo sessions, over 100+ weddings and events. We’ve had our work in published magazines and books, we have been excited to see our photos up on billboards, we’ve photographed celebrities, small businesses to name brand high end corporate businesses and more.
We were nominated by Rhode Island monthly’s readers two years in a row as BEST of RI wedding photographers 2017 as well as BEST of RI Photographers 2018. We were named Expertise.com’s Best Photographers in Providence, RI for the last two years in a row as well also (a favorite <3) Most LOVED photographers by the followers of Hulufrog.com
The part that I love the most is that our job brings us close to SO many amazing people. People who end up our friends, and being able to give our clients/friends images that will help them remember the little things that they may not remember so clearly in the future makes me so unbelievably happy. Photography to me, is not just photographing an image, but photographing memories... I believe everyone should have too many memories than not enough.
With all this being said, My Dreams do not stop here. Being a driven individual I don’t think I’ll ever NOT have Goals. In the future i’m planning on traveling more to photograph different places and people. I would also love to hold online workshops to teach other photographers all that I have learned over the years.
So tell me about you! What are your dreams and goals? Post Below or feel free to send me a message! I would LOVE to get to know you!
Thanks for taking the time to read and get to know me a bit better! Let’s be friends!

Most people would really love new family portraits but some just can’t afford to pay the prices associated with a professional photographer. We believe everyone should get the chance to have professional images captured with their loved ones to treasure forever. This is why Justin and I are so pleased to offer Pay What You Can portrait sessions!
These 15 minute sessions will be scheduled only once a year!
All you need to do is scroll down and fill out the form below and tell me why you’d like to participate and what kind of photos you need!
