ACADIA WEDDING PRICING GUIDE

THINKING OF GETTING MARRIED IN ACADIA? LET ME SET THE SCENE

Maine's rocky coastline, the mountains, Jordan Pond, and Sand Beach are all such iconic locations within New England's only national park. Your wedding already sounds amazing!

MY STYLE AND APPROACH

I gravitate towards a fun photojournalistic style, telling the story of your special day exactly as it unfolds. I consider myself an emotional ninja capturing those intimate raw moments unobtrusively for you to cherish in years to come. Although I’ll be primarily taking candids, I’ll be sure to use natural poses during portraits of you and your sweetheart as well as with family if they’ve come along for the adventure. Every love story is unique and it is my goal to create images that reflect your true personalities as a couple. I specialize in using both natural light and flash photography to best showcase all the important components of your big day.

Why do I love photographing weddings?

I’ve photographed over 100 weddings both big and small and I STILL get tears in my eyes during the first dance or when you give me one final look before walking down the aisle. When people ask if it ever gets old, the answer is always an honest “no”. I get to meet absolutely incredible couples (like you!) and create those memories frozen in time that you’ll look back on for the rest of your life. You’ll be able to relive those quiet moments writing your vows down in the morning and the happy tears during your intimate ceremony as the sun rises or sets in the distance. I keep a countdown for all my couples and when the day finally comes, I’m just as excited as you are.

Let me tell you a little bit more about me!

I'm sure you've realized by now but I'm a Boston based destination wedding & elopement photographer. I've lived in various areas over the USA, but I've come to realize that the New England charm is hard to beat. I've grown up having beach days on the Cape, apple picking in Vermont (I went to college just outside of Burlington), and hitting the slopes on various New Hampshire mountains. I'm a huge outdoor enthusiast and there probably isn't a wilderness sport I don't love- I used to be a guide! Today I'm a Wilderness First Responder, Leave Not Trace Certified Photographer, and graduate of Maddie Mae of Adventure Instead's Adventure Elopement Academy (so I've learned from the best). I fell in love with Acadia National Park during a rock climbing trip to Otter Cliffs a few years ago and now it's my mission to give couples like you an incredible elopement day in the park I love so much!

WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS?

1. Free intimate wedding consult to learn more about you two!

2. I'll just need a signed contract and a 50% non- refundable retainer fee- then you're officially one of my couples and I begin spoiling you rotten.

3. Unlimited consults to chat through your day.

4. We create a customized timeline specific to your needs.

5. Best day of your life!

HERE'S WHAT MY FORMER COUPLES HAD TO SAY

Meghan was such a joy to work with! As someone who doesn't love standing in front of a camera, Meghan made the process so easy and enjoyable! Throughout the months leading up to our wedding, Meghan would shoot us an email or text to check in or answer any questions we had, which was totally unprompted but ended up being seriously helpful. Having been to zero weddings (except my own lol) I had no idea what questions to ask, so Meghan really took the lead and showed a great depth of experience that made me feel so at ease. Now we haven't even touched on the pictures, and they're insane. We just got our wedding gallery back the other day and I spent hours combing through all the photos and was in tears by the end! They were so gorgeous and allowed me to relive the big day! I could go on for hours about how amazing Meghan was, but suffice it to say that you will be thrilled with the product and person you're getting.

Meghan was a phenomenal asset to our wedding experience!! On our wedding day this year, she made us feel like the only people in the world. Our photos are incredibly beautiful and were delivered to us in such a timely manner in a very user-friendly online gallery. They captured the joy, love, emotion, and uniqueness of our day perfectly, and we are beyond excited to have these memories to look back on forever.
If you are looking for a compassionate wedding photographer that is committed to getting to know you and telling your story through beautiful photos, Meghan is your girl! We couldn't have asked for a better experience from a wedding photographer, and we are now blessed with a life-long friend :)

We had Meghan as our photographer for our engagement session and our wedding ceremony and Meghan did any amazing job! Not only did we love our wedding pictures, but Meghan made us feel so comfortable and helped us with much more than just taking pictures. We had a very small ceremony due to COVID, with a few of our close friends. Given the small ceremony, we did not have a day-of coordinator who would have helped us with the logistical aspect of the wedding. But Meghan was there to make sure everything went well while taking beautiful photos!
Meghan went above and beyond to capture beautiful photos at our venue- Lyman Estates in Waltham, MA. Meghan had so many ideas for poses and location, it made it so easy for us! Meghan was willing to stay longer after the ceremony to capture the beautiful sunset. I would highly recommend as not only is Meghan an amazing photographer, but her effervescent personality made it so fun for us while taking pictures, which was reflected in the pictures.

FAQS

• HOW DO WE BOOK YOU?

You look over some full galleries, we chat on the phone, and then to make it official you both sign the contracts and pay the 50% non-refundable retainer of the package of your choosing! Then I begin spoiling you ;)

• WHAT IS YOUR EDITING STYLE?

There are current trends right now that swing to super light & airy or the other side is more dark and moody. My editing style is very classic and timeless so you can remember the wedding day for what it really was. The photos are vibrant and true to color!

• HOW MANY IMAGES DO YOU DELIVER?

Every wedding is different! Some have lots of people and some are smaller. Some have great sunny weather and some are rainy. Some couples go all out with details and others take a simpler route. A lot of factors come into play, but you are guaranteed to get a minimum of 50 photos per hour (for example- an 8 hour wedding would get a minimum of 400 delivered images).

• DO YOU EVER DELIVER RAW IMAGES?

Nope! I don't deliver the unedited original RAW files to clients because they aren't representing a final product. You'll be getting the high resolution edited jpeg files.

• DO YOU TAKE PHOTOSHOP REQUESTS?

I'm a big believer in capturing real moments and promoting natural beauty so I don't do photoshop requests that change the way you'd look on your best day. For example I don't ever do any photoshopping of body alterations such as changing hair color, changing shape of nose/eyes/body to be bigger or smaller.If there is a certain cosmetic edit you want done it can be outsourced to Retouch-Up.com based on their website pricing.

I've completed a photoshop course so I am a pro at the following complimentary edits I can provide if you'd like- no biggie if you don't want anything touched.

- Removing distractions
- I'll get rid of exit signs, hair elastics and people photobombing in the background of a photo
- Taming flyaway hairs that ya know decided to blow under your nose making it seem like you have a mustache
- Swapping heads and eyes: Think I'm going to delete an amazing photo just cause someone blinked- think again! I can open their eyes like MAGIC
- I can edit out that teenage sized zit that decided to bless you on wedding day
- Blending that awkward sunburn you got while relaxing at the beach days before your wedding
- Make ring shots POP & SPARKLE

I just like to give my clients 100% confidence that if life gets messy or a zit decides to bless you on wedding day you have no reason to worry whatsoever.

• WHAT IS THE PHOTO TURN AROUND TIME?

Your wedding photos are delivered to you on an online gallery within 6-8 weeks of your wedding day and you get a few sneak peek photos within 48 hours.

• CAN YOU PHOTOGRAPH ANIMALS AT OUR WEDDING?

1000% YES! They are family too :) I've photographed dogs, cats, and even horses! I used to work at a horse farm and volunteer at Vermont's All Breed Dog shelter so I'm very comfortable working with a variety of animals!

• IT SAYS YOU ARE A "LEAVE NO TRACE" CERTIFIED PHOTOGRAPHER- WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

I'm a huge advocate in keeping the beautiful areas we photograph in just as good as we left them. That way when you come back for future anniversaries the landscapes resemble just how they looked when you shared vows years before. The 7 Principles are as follows:

1. PLAN AHEAD & PREPARE
2. TRAVEL & CAMP ON DURABLE SURFACES
3. DISPOSE OF WASTE PROPERLY
4. LEAVE WHAT YOU FIND
5. MINIMIZE CAMPFIRE IMPACTS
6. RESPECT WILDLIFE
7. BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHER VISITORS

For example when taking photos of you two I would never be leading you off trail to stand on a fragile alpine environment or releasing confetti on a summit since we don't want our animal friends to eat them!

• DO YOU OFFER ALBUMS?

At the moment I don’t offer albums (but can definitely give you the names of high quality companies that make them). The shop within your wedding gallery provides options for prints, canvases, wall art, etc. If you are interested in those prices you may click on one of the wedding gallery links I sent you and click the PRINT STORE button.

• WHAT IF THERE IS BAD WEATHER ON OUR WEDDING DAY?

I don't believe in bad weather only bad gear! Growing up in New England I have photographed in all weather conditions from snowy days in Vermont to rainy days. In my opinion rainy days can create some of the most romantic photos (I also bring along clear umbrellas for you too!).

• I KNOW YOU ARE A PHOTOGRAPHER, BUT ARE YOU AN OUTDOOR ENTHUSIAST YOURSELF?

Yes! I used to assist guiding hiking, backpacking, rock climbing, ice-climbing, and snow-shoeing trips in college- plus for fun I also kayak, paddle board, surf, and ski! I'm a Wilderness First Responder (I renew mine every 3 years) and I'm CPR certified. Being outside is my happy place and I love getting to explore new national parks!

• ARE YOU INSURED?

You bet! If your venue needs an insurance certificate I can send one over no problem!

• CAN I SEND YOU A SHOT LIST OR PINTEREST BOARD OF PHOTO REQUESTS?

​​I don't ever shoot from photo shot lists or imitate Pinterest boards. I've been a wedding photographer for 5 years so I've got all the most important shots of the day on lock down and will be creating Pinterest worthy images of YOUR unique wedding. Plus we will be creating your family formal list in the wedding questionnaire you'll be getting from me! That being said, if there are certain elements special to your day whether that's VIP people you want me to pay extra special attention to or any sentimental details-I've got you!

• HOW MANY HOURS OF COVERAGE DO I NEED?

Good question! Anything 8 hours or more typically covers a wedding day in full. With 6 hours of coverage you are either cutting out the getting ready portion of your day and keeping full reception coverage or vice versa. An 8 hour wedding package covers getting ready all through your reception formalities and typically into 1-2 hours of open dance floor. A 10 hour wedding photography package typically covers the whole celebration all the way till the end- which is perfect for those couples doing a formal exit (sparklers, fireworks, etc.) You can see example timelines here: https://meghanlynchphotography.com/wedding-day-timeline-everything-you-need-to-know/
