newlywed requiescence - Megan Laura Photography

It’s no secret I’m not the greatest at blogging, but now that I have a new website and brand new look I set to make it priority and have a new blog post every month! I like to think I will start to get better at it make this a weekly occasion!



I want to start this journal off with something very exciting. I had the great opportunity to travel to Catskills New York to attend Ginny Au’s Loom curated workshop. The loom series is a world wide teaching platform for photographers. Twice a year Ginny welcomes photographers to chosen venue for two dats of educational lectures, observations, shoots and camaraderie. In a small group, the attendees are welcomed into curated environments with the sole purpose of documenting the story as it unfolds. Ginny encouraged us to photograph natural movements without directing the couples. This gave us a whole new way of seeing beauty and the need for authenticity in our imagery. It’s so important to capture peoples true personality and touch, instead of uncomfortable actions that aren’t true to the client.

This session was so special to me, the emotions, the soft music playing in the back ground, the smell of freshly mad pizza, and the atmosphere this real couple brings into the room was beautiful. It moved me to tears with how true their connection was. It was a pleasure to be apart of.
