01. Donkey's arrived at a wedding, but I didn't get to taste the cake.
                  


02.  Busting a move on the dance floor, but trying and failing at the worm.
                  


03.  Photographing in the Texas blue bonnets, but getting bit by mosquitos.
                  


04.  Meeting my boyfriend, but losing at ping pong..
                  


05.  Doing what I love while making new friends, but having to say goodbye.                      
                  

As a four year old you’d catch me having pretend weddings with my dolls. Truth is, not much has changed as I grew up.  I began photographing weddings as a 2nd shooter first and soon fell in love with documenting the stories I could tell behind the lens. Capturing fun couples in love puts a smile on my face and continues to keep me on my toes. I recently moved from New York City to Morristown, NJ where I enjoy cooking at home, exploring my new neighborhood and working on my dance moves in a bit more space.

THE WEDDING 
EXPERIENCE

Believe it or not I get this question a lot. The confusion comes from this Style Me Pretty post. When my friend asked me to pose in a wedding dress I hesitated slightly but eventually said yes. Turned out to be a great experience and I believe has allowed me to relate to all you lovely little brides.

FAQ

HAVE YOU EVER BEEN MARRIED?

WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY BOOKING PROCESS?

I'm not going to lie to you and tell you I wont stalk you... I will, so be expecting a new Facebook friend, and Instagram follower. Also, I'm here to help. I'll be happy to give any advice and guidance on the planning and scheduling of your wedding to best capture the pictures you've always dreamed of. 

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM YOU ON MY WEDDING DAY?

There will be two photographers who are fully prepared, professional, and personable. Your wedding day will be filled with smiles and excitement and smooth sailing. :)

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM YOU AFTER MY WEDDING?

After an 8 to 10 week period you will receive ownership of your high resolution, fully edited gorgeous photographs with your own online gallery for easy sharing capabilities. 

ARE YOU AVAILABLE FOR TRAVEL?

Most definitely! I love to travel! I've had the opportunity to travel and make friends in Europe as well as growing up in both Texas and North Carolina. Right now my home is in New York City but my heart belongs in a suitcase filling up with adventures. For weddings 60+ miles outside NYC additional travel rates apply.

Oh man, o man.... I've not needed many wedding photographers (thank goodness!), but Mekina is by far the best in the entire world. Not only are her pictures absolutely beautiful, but she also thinks of everything (seriously, everything). And the best part - she is someone you actually WANT hanging out with you all day during one of the most special days of your life. This is important. She becomes your best friend, moms and aunts fall in love with her, wedding party people gladly do what she says to get the best pics, and you'll want her to document the rest of your life by the end of the experience. I rarely review anything or anyone online, but I really do want the world of brides & grooms to know they are making a good decision to bring Mekina on board. She's the best.

I couldn't speak more highly of Mekina. Her natural light photography is absolutely stunning. She's incredibly sweet to work with, will make you laugh and and cry happy tears throughout your big day, and is a complete professional. She's incredibly knowledgeable of the wedding industry and has wisdom to share in all areas of your big day. Something I've never even heard of before, she got my photos to me 3 weeks after the wedding. And they are amazing. AMAZING. Everyone is raving about them. My family, my husband's family, our friends, coworkers, everyone.

Where do I begin? Booking Mekina for our wedding was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Even if I didn't know her personally, I would have only wanted her to take my wedding photos. She has a real gift behind the camera. She has the ability of making you feel like the camera isn't even there. I have never felt comfortable in front of cameras and have always been the type to hate most pictures of myself. Every picture she has taken of me looks incredible. She made me feel like a model on the day of my wedding and I have no idea how she did it. I think it's magic.  Everyone is still telling me how impressed they were with her and how beautiful all of the pictures turned out. I may be biased because she is also my friend, but many other guests have told me they are the best wedding pictures they have ever seen. I completely agree. I couldn't be happier with how they turned out and I can't wait to see the entire collection. She captured every sweet and special moment. We are so happy that we will always be able to look back on those photographs and re-live the most special day of our lives.
