My fiance and I had a great engagement shoot with [megan khichi photography] so I just wanted to share the love. Megan is getting her business off the ground, so I highly, highly recommend her to anyone looking for budget-friendly photographs in the NY/NJ area.
I noticed Megan’s work several months ago (we have mutual friends) and was completely floored by her talent. Her skill with composition and lighting was evident, but she also had a way of finding – or bringing about – moments that captured personalities perfectly. When I found out that she decided to begin shooting professionally, I contacted her about taking some engagement pictures.
To start, she made coordination incredibly easy. She wanted to find a location that suited the two of us and she was willing to travel (we went back and forth between a few locations in Brooklyn, New York, and north and south Jersey) so we spent a lot of time trying to figure out the “where.” Once we settled on a spot, she talked to us about the clothing we’d want to wear, prepared us for the kinds of shots she’d be taking, and made some suggestions about other things we could bring. We met up with her day of and she put us at ease immediately, so we just had fun with it. Neither of us are particularly camera-happy, so being followed around by someone taking our photos could have been a disaster, but instead it was one of the most fun days we’ve had together. It’s funny looking at the pictures now – a lot were posed at her direction but we never felt silly or self-conscious in the moment and in the shots themselves we look completely natural, and like us. Only we look a lot better in them than in real life.
So, we are insanely happy with the results, and want to scream Megan’s name from the rooftops. I don’t think she offers printing services, but she gave us a set of both hi- and low- res images that we can have printed ourselves. The turn-around time was FAST, too (two days).
