Hey, you! Thanks SO much for clicking that tab above that brings you here because that means your wanting to get to know me a little more, and THAT makes my heart so happy! My name is Megan Marie Goggins and I am a Wedding & Portrait Photographer from Beecher, IL and I absolutely love this crazy thing we call, life. I love celebrating holidays, birthdays, "national holidays", Fridays, Mondays and just about everyday. Isn't that how it's supposed to be? When I'm not taking pictures of adorable couples, I'm probably making something with my hot glue gun and scrapbook paper. I'm a huge DIYer and I love a good craft night!
For as long as I can remember, I've always had a camera of some sort attached to my hip. Having this fascination for taking pictures of pretty things has been second nature to me but back in the day, you'll mostly find "hanging out with my friends" type of pictures in my memory cards. Yup, I was that friend. No matter what we were doing or where we were going, I was not leaving the house without a camera to document our day. Let me tell you, those photos while I was growing up are some of the most cherished memories I have and I'm so thankful that I have them to look back on. The day I realized I could take this passion for taking photos of my own life and capture the events in other peoples lives, changed everything. I am very lucky to say that I've found my calling early in life! Capturing the moments and memories for other people and giving them the gift to cherish them forever is what I was created to do!
I absolutely LOVE serving joyful and life-loving couples who can not WAIT to say "I Do"! I strive to give an unforgettable experience so that when I walk in that bridal suite on her wedding day, I'm not just a vendor, I'm like one of her good friends and she is so relieved that I'm there! Being able to say that my job title includes capturing and saving the memories of one of the most amazing days in someone life is truly incredible and I am SO thankful!
Brian & I met almost 8 years ago (funny story actually!) and we finally tied the knot last year in October and I don't know which one takes 1st prize for the best day of my life. Actually, our wedding day was pretty magical. We both eat our burgers and hot dogs plain (yup, no condiments, yuck!) , we both love hiking, being outside & exploring new places, and we have a HUGE obsession with our lab/doxin mix Zoey. This little family of mine is in fact my everything. They both hold a special place in my heart because they both have their own unique ways of loving me and making me laugh, and that's all you could ask for, right?
