People often wonder what you bring to the table as a photographer. What is your specialty? In an age of the specialists, I do not fit in because I love variety in my life and in my work. I am drawn to making images that tell stories in a clean and simple way to jobs that let me explore a companies brand or a client's personality. I'm drawn to telling stories and working with clients to turn my images into something that everyone can identify with.
I am at heart a lifestyle photographer. I love shooting in different environments. I love shooting pictures of people, children, food, yoga, products while they are in a natural environment. I love showing connections between people and drawing you into their story whether that story is a family shot, a wedding, or a board meeting.
As a photographer, I like to bring my skill-set of shooting different types of subject matter to every shoot. Wedding photography was the perfect training ground for this in that every single shoot you go to you have to be a portrait photographer, a product photographer, an architectural photographer and a photojournalist.
My goal with all of my photography is that I want you to feel as if you are in the photograph that you are viewing. That you can feel the mood in the room, imagine the smell the food as you view the image or hear the laughter of the children as they are playing at school.
I received my BA in Commercial Advertising Photography from Brooks Institute of Photography, and later moved to New York City for an internship with famed documentary photographer Mary Ellen Mark. I opened my own studio Meghan McSweeney Photography in 2002 here in Richmond, Virginia. I have loved being a part of hundreds of wedding days, family portraits, corporate events and commercial photography ever since. As a small business owner myself over the last 14 years, I am grateful that I get to help passionate people grow their businesses.

Client List includes Suntrust Bank, VCU Arts, Tiffany & Co., Main St, Homes, Moseley Architects, Community in Schools- Richmond, Racheal Cook MBA among many others.
