I'm a lifestyle and wedding photographer based in Phoenix, AZ. The first time I picked up a camera was when I was about 12 years old, on a summer afternoon at my Nana's house. We spent the day digging through boxes filled with old family photographs. My Nana told me stories of her childhood and I got to relive those cherished moments with her. She explained to me that photos have a way of connecting us to our past and defining who we are and where we came from. She then gave me her old 35mm camera. That was the moment that ignited my love of photography and a desire to create timeless images.
I am so grateful that I get to do what I love, perfectly preserving moments that will last longer than our days on earth and be treasured by future loved ones.

AMAZING!! I had a couples photo shoot with Megan and my fiancé and when I say obsessed, I mean it. We did a styled shoot that was playful and sultry and she made us both feel so comfortable. I’ve definitely roped my fiancé into doing photo shoots before, but he said this was the most fun he’s ever had and felt so comfortable. The photos are a dream, and Megan has such an electric vibe to be around. 10/10 recommend her, you won’t be disappointed!

Megan was absolutely amazing to capture our wedding day! We had a small ceremony in flagstaff, with a tight time schedule. She got there early and got so many pictures that I didn’t think she would be able to get, but she did it. They were so nice and professional, and made me and the entire bridal party feel comfortable in front of the camera. She gave us suggestions for decorations and our bubble send-off to make sure it was a perfect moment. The pictures are adventurous and romantic, not like your....

I truly couldn’t say better things about Megan. I’ve worked with numerous photographers and she’s been by far my favorite yet. Not only does she have a great personality, but she is amazing at directing & telling you how to pose, and her editing is absolutely amazing. It’s practically impossible to find a picture I don’t like whenever she sends a finished gallery to me. 1000% recommend her for any of your photography needs!

Megan was SO incredible to work with - from the very beginning of reaching out to schedule with her, through to the end of receiving our beautiful photos. I cannot recommend her enough! She was always very easy to get in touch with, made me feel really comfortable during the entire shoot and got our photos back to us in such an amazing time frame!! We wouldn't of wanted anyone else capturing our graduation, it was truly so wonderful to work with her and we already cannot wait to work with her again. If you'

Best photographer ever!!! Megan is seriously the most talented photographer I have had the opportunity to work with. She is also one that goes above and beyond to be sure that everything is perfect. I hired her having no background on her other than a recommendation from a friend. I live in Ohio and planned an entire surprise engagement in AZ at Cathedral rock with Megan. She was so supportive. We were in communication for months. She seriously..." You can read more of this review on my Google Business Page

Megan captured the most special images of my son for his High School senior pictures. She has an eye for getting the shot that really tells your story. I would highly recommend Megan Rae Photography!!!

Megan was amazing from beginning to end! We started with a Zoom appointment so she could learn more about us and what we were looking for in our wedding photos. Our engagement session was so fun! Megan’s assistant photographer was her mom who was equally as fun and helpful. Megan took us to some great spots in the heart of Downtown Phoenix and our images on top of a parking garage turned out amazing. Finally our wedding day came and Megan was ..."

I can honestly say I think I look awkward in 90% of the photos taken of me. I was expecting that when I got my photos back from Megan that I would only like a couple photos of myself but I am having the opposite problem. I literally love all of the photos she sent us! It was awesome to see her work her magic; her guidance and expertise in helping us with our poses and posture, and helping us feel comfortable and look natural was so helpful and evident when we got to see the finished product. I could go on..

I found Megan on instagram & I'm sure glad I did! We did our shoot in a sunflower field just before sunset. Her & her second shooter made me & my husband feel very comfortable in front of the camera & snapped every single moment. This made for some great shots, funny photos & heart-warming ones too. We'd recommend Megan to ANYONE looking for a photographer who is outgoing, fun & very skilled (so basically EVERYONE)!

Megan is a talented photographer and editor that exhibits exceptional attention to detail. She is such a professional to work with. Timely in all of her correspondence and was early and prepared for us when we arrived at our photoshoot location. We had the best experience shooting with her and she made us feel completely at ease as we were a bit nervous with it being our first couple photoshoot together. Could not be more impressed and absolutely LOVE our dreamy beach photos that are now hanging in our home

Megan is an amazing photographer! We had the pleasure of having her shoot our maternity pictures and they came out better than I ever expected. She is so calm and easy to work with and makes the session feel so natural and enjoyable. Not to mention, she chose an amazing location for us to be photographed at and now I will forever get to cherish the memories of being pregnant. I highly recommend Megan to be your photographer. I look forward to our next session with her!

Megan was an absolute delight to work with! We have a 7 month old so you can imagine how hard it is for us to take a decent family photo and she somehow managed to pull it off! We had so many wonderful photos to choose from. I've already started planning our next shoot with her!

We happened to be walking @Balboa Park in SD and saw Megan taking photos for one of her clients, we approached her to see if she could fit us into her schedule while we were on vacation without really knowing much about her. We were absolutely blown away the level of quality and value we received....She provided us excellent instructions during the shoot and feedback on what to do, the pictures came out fantastic and probably the best photo shoot we ever had.

Megan is so amazing! She will make you look so good in your photos, show you how to pose, and make you feel comfortable and confident. She is truly talented and I have loved working with her during multiple shots.

Megan is so amazing at what she does. She is kind, patient, and professional. Her work totally speaks for itself. Everything was simply amazing. I can’t thank her enough for capturing so many quality shots that my 6 year old and I will have forever! She definitely exceeded my expectations!

Megan did an amazing job and I could not be happier to catch this moment in time with these pictures of our family. She was very professional and yet she has a really calming presence that made us feel so comfortable in our own skin and I think that really came through in our pictures looking natural and not posed. She was able to capture the most beautiful pictures, and you would never even know that meanwhile my daughter was having a meltdown and my dog wouldn’t stop barking at her haha! Also, she got ...

Megan was an absolute pleasure to work with. With scheduling the photos she was very attentive and responded quickly. She used her experience to help guide us to a great location for the photos. During the shoot, she was great with us and our dogs. The pictures turned out absolutely fabulous and we could not be happier. Could not recommend highly enough, and would definitely use again.

Megan is so wonderful! She is great at directing and coming up with creative and unique compositions that you wouldn’t normally think would work out, but look FANTASTIC. Even with my non-cooperative one year old son, she was able to capture amazing photos and memories that are all worthy of being hung on the family wall. 10/10

We had heard such great things about Megan and I’m so glad we scheduled a shoot with her. She is extremely talented — we absolutely love our photos!! But not only was the end result wonderful, Megan is a very calming presence and makes you feel very comfortable (since getting your pictures taken can feel stressful and awkward), so the whole process felt smooth and enjoyable. She was especially wonderful with my 21 month old son, too!

Megan is the BEST!! We just had our second kid in December and really wanted to do a family photo shoot. Megan was the sweetest and took the most beautiful photos of our family. I seriously started crying happy tears when she sent me the photos. I am beyond excited that we will have these memories captured forever. She was so professional and made us feel very relaxed. She even got our wild almost 3 year old son to cooperate and say cheese! I have worked with a lot of photographers and Megan Rae is one ....

Megan was so wonderful to work with!! She was kind, patient, and she captured beautiful family photos, quickly! I was so appreciative of how quick and efficient and even fun, this process was. I needed one good photo of my family of 5 and we got so much more! I cannot wait to capture more family memories with Megan behind the camera, in the future.

Megan is a wonderful creative and unique photographer! She helped me even though I didn’t know how to pose and was able to get all the great angles that showcased me for professional headshots. Looking forward to my next shoot with my whole family!

She does such an amazing job at capturing the personality of each person and her photos are truly beautiful. So glad I will have these photos and memories forever. Thank you, Megan! I hope we have many many more photoshoots with you. :)

Megan captured our family perfectly- she is such a talented and genuine photographer! She made our baby photoshoot effortless and our photos will be cherished forever and hung throughout our house.

Megan was a life saver! My parents haven't had all their kids in the same place in 20+ years! We knew we had to take advantage of this unique opportunity. I contacted several photographers who were out of town for the weekend before receiving a recommendation for Megan. Megan was so gracious in accommodating our short notice as well as location and time requirements. She and her assistant were fabulous! She sent the pictures within the quoted turn around time and we couldn't be happier. Megan didn't....

Megan is an amazing photographer!! She did an excellent job of making us feel at ease and was such a pleasure to work with. We are extremely happy with how our family photos turned out-in fact she brought me to tears with the beautiful images she captured of us and our girls. She did a great job and also got them back to us quickly. I highly recommend her for any of your photography needs!

In a world full of backyard photographers, it's not everyday you find the kind of talent that Megan has. Her creative eye, paired with her incredible patience, fun pose options, and overall knack for ensuring families get those perfect shots that will last a lifetime is unprecedented. Her skills are truly unmatched and we are so incredibly thrilled with the work she did to capture our family portraits. Thank you Megan and we are so happy to have found our new photographer!

This was our first time doing any type of photo shoot. We weren’t really sure how to pose and Megan was able to show us and guided us the whole way. All while remaining relaxed and maintaining a carefree atmosphere. I can’t recommend her enough, the professionalism was out of this world and she has such a creative eye. Unlike any photographer I’ve ever seen before. Most importantly while making sure the photo shoot and the style of the photos stayed true to who we are. If you’re looking for a photographer..

I love our photos so much! Megan captured our personalities beautifully. She was so sweet and loving toward our son supporting his need for play, movement and silliness. I highly recommend her!
