With the nickname of “Smiles” it’s no surprise that I love to make others feel relaxed and comfortable when in front of the camera. While I am most comfortable behind the lens, if you are feeling relaxed while being photographed, you are going to just love the end result. Photography can be a fun, special time, which will create images that stay with you for the rest of your life.
I have spent many years working as a photographer for a number of established businesses throughout New Zealand and Australia, gaining skills and experience along the way. During these years I have been challenged within the industry and I continue to increase my knowledge and skill base, developing a style of photography that captures life, raw emotion and creates images to inspire. In 2010 I founded Megan Graham Photography and have established myself as a well-respected photographer within New Zealand, including receiving my first ever Bronze award for a photograph I entered in the 2012 Iris New Zealand Professional Photographer of the Year Awards. I now hold a number of awards for images entered in these awards since then.
While I have the pleasure of photographing a number of weddings every year and consider myself to be a specialist in all things wedding, I balance my wedding photography with family portraiture and commercial work, which keeps me excited and challenged throughout the year.
Family portraiture also holds a special place for me as photographs are one of the few things in life which increase in value and importance as the years go on. I am a versatile photographer willing to take my clients’ requests into consideration during any assignment.
I choose to work with high quality Canon equipment which is maintained at a high standard to ensure every job is outstanding and exceeds my clients’ expectations. Not to mention being an active and accredited member of the New Zealand Institute of professional photography which ensures I attend a number of professional development workshops every year and work on my sill and craft consistently.
