"I've been dating my boyfriend, Sam, for almost 9 years now and I've wanted Meredith to take photos of us forever, if that says anything! Her enthusiasm and instant spark of ideas 2 weeks prior to our actual shoot was making me so excited I could hardly stand it. Meredith made our photos look so natural and made us feel at ease and we loosened up almost immediately! She let us use a beautiful bouquet of flowers to go with our photos that really brought together the early summer essence. With that prop, we also had a live prop: our new 9 week old puppy! She even got him to pose (and he didn't even take commands from us yet!!!) When I got my photos back, I cried. They mean so much to Sam and I and she really captured the little things about us that sometimes we forget about after almost a decade together. I couldn't be more thankful for the way Meredith captured our love so effortlessly. She is the perfect balance of a friend and a professional, I can't wait for her to take Sam and I's future wedding photos!" - Sammi
"Meredith is absolutely amazing! She had tons of fun and different ideas for us to try which made the photo shoot so much fun! She has the best personality to go with it and I was super impressed with how fast she got previews back to us! I would 100% recommend her to anyone and everyone. - Kaitlyn
Meredith is professional but comfortable at the same time. She was a friend as well as a photographer during the shoot, and she made us feel right at home. Never did I feel awkward and never was I questioning what I was supposed to be doing. She makes the shoot easy, fun and beautiful. The photos I got back were breathtaking and SO worth it. Meredith's photos were better than anything I could have imagined and I know I am going to cherish mine for the rest of my life. 10/10 recommend for any occasion. - Grace
So I'm a Facebook stalker, and I used to (and still do) stalk Meredith Graves Photography. I was always in awe of her ability to capture such intimate moments between couples and families. After reaching out to me and some convincing of my boyfriend, I scheduled a Dog Family Photo Session. Little did I know, my boyfriend had contacted Meredith and turned this photo opportunity into a proposal.
Now I could go into 1,000 examples of how Meredith made this moment perfect for us - like the build up to the moment without ruining the surprise or knowing exactly how to pose us to keep me from being suspicious as he got down on one knee behind me - but that wouldn't even begin to touch on how she went above and beyond to pull off this proposal with Luke. Even more so, she found a way to capture our raw emotions the moments before, during, and after our proposal. Those moments are often lost after the blur of calling family and friends to share the excitement, but because of Meredith, we have those movements forever.
Meredith captures candid yet real moments between people, which makes her an incredibly gifted photographer. She cares deeply about her clients, and eagerly works to make sure they're satisfied in every way possible. If you're in need of a photographer, I HIGHLY recommend Meredith Graves. - Emily
Meredith is an amazing photographer. But her work alone isn't what makes her stand out. She is great with kids and so incredibly patient. She has a vision for each shot that is so evident when you see the finished product. Throughout the shoots she takes time to get to know things about her clients, instead of just barking orders and snapping pictures. She'll always be our family's go to photographer! -Kelly
Meredith and her team were able to squeeze us into one of her mini sessions after our original photographer fell ill, that same day. She was AMAZING! So kind, so funny, gave really great direction, encouraged us to incorporate anything we wanted into our photos, and even gave us some sneak peaks throughout the shoot. We will for sure be using her again someday, and I would recommend her a million times over! -Olivia
Meredith is absolutely remarkable, as a photographer and as a person. My family and I have gotten to spend time with her at an indoor mini shoot and a full session outdoors. I just cannot get over how amazing our photos turned out. My family is just in awe of her talent. She captured moments in such a raw, natural matter. She also spent time getting to know us, even asking my little man questions about him and he couldn’t stop smiling at her/for her. -Corina
I am so drawn to Meredith's images and how she captures light. When I look at one of her photo albums it always tells a story. She really connects with her clients and you know she truly cares. She truly has a gift of capturing what people hold near and dear and I'm so happy she shares it with others. I will treasure these photographs forever. - Katie
Meredith is phenomenal. It so wonderful to work with someone who is fully immersed in their passion. She is so sweet, professional, and amazingly talented. I am SO relieved I chose her as my wedding/engagement photographer. She is such a special person! - Hayley
I can’t say enough positive things about my entire experience with Meredith! From our first interaction to viewing my engagement photos, she was beyond professional, warm, and kind. She by far exceeded my expectations for a photographer. I can say, without a doubt, that I will only work with Meredith for the rest of my photography needs in the future! - Mallory
Meredith was like our best friend as well as a photographer during our mini photo shoot! We knew of Meredith from William Jewell College and from all of us being collegiate athletes. She always had an amazing personality around campus & during the shoot she made us feel so comfortable. Making the shoot easy for us & our two dogs!
I think what makes her stand out from other photographers are her prices & photos. Her prices are very reasonable (she does it because she loves to take pictures) & her photos are so unique—different angles, posses, she really captures the moments & faces in each picture.
Highly recommend her for any occasion!! - Shelby
I went to high school with Meredith (and Trev), and while we did know each other and I was constantly stalking her photography pages, never did I think that our 2 hour engagement/elopement photo session with her (and Trev) would create friendships that I honestly feel will last a lifetime. The whole thing just felt like a wonderful double date. I couldn’t imagine spending a more intimate moment with my hubbs and these two wonderful human beings. We made so many memories. She told our story, in the best way.
Mer helped me pick out our outfits, gave me the best advice and was literally there every step of the way. She left the location up to us, because she lives in my hometown, which is 3 hours away, but I honestly feel like Meredith could make any location beautiful.
Mer is such a goofy, beautiful person and makes the adventure so fun and personal. It didn’t feel forced. It was definitely an experience to remember, and I can’t wait until our next adventure. - Jensen
Meredith comes highly recommended from both Chris and I, she is professional yet fun. She made us both feel comfortable and it shows in her work. She was very patient with our pups and their craziness and Chris and I and our awkwardness.
What an amazing experience it was to work with her and we can not wait till we get to stand in front of that camera of hers again to see what kind of magic she can make.
Looking forward to June of 2019 when we get to work with her again! - Lindsay
After searching through hundreds of engagement photo session offers we landed on Meredith because of her amazing portfolio. We had no idea that the engagement session would be so much fun. Meredith made us feel so comfortable and made us laugh so much which made the photos genuine. She is such a talented photographer and our photos turned out so beautifully. We can not wait for her to do our wedding coming up at the end of this year and future sessions to come! If you are looking for someone who will take beautiful photos and have a blast during your session then Mer is the photographer for you! - Colten and Amelia
Meredith is top notch. I have worked with her 3 times and am blown away every single time. She is not only amazing behind the camera, but she's amazing at being your friend as well. She is so easy to work with and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. She turns the little quirky moments into photos to cherish forever. I am so thankful we chose Meredith to do our wedding. I couldn't have imagined anyone else being there for us. - Aspen and Jeremiah
Meredith did such an amazing job with us, she did our engagement photos and they turned out better than we ever could of imagined, she has the coolest personality and blew our expectations clean out of the water, we now know what it's like to work with a true professional. Thank you so much and we will be referring you to every person we know!!!- Jessica and Kenny
We are over the moon with the work of Meredith Graves Photography LLC !! She captured our goofy and fun true love for one another. All while making us need to call an agent for Moose to become a model dog! Meredith was able to take our awkwardness and make us look like we knew what we were doing. She kept us laughing and reminiscing on our relationship for how we got here. Everyone needs a Meredith in their life to capture one of the most beautiful days of our life thus far, and we can't wait to see what she can do on August 3rd, 2019. - Ashley and Matt.
