Hey there! I'm Megan - thanks for dropping in to read about my story. I'm a super passionate human, cat (and dog) lady, who can't live without ice cream (mint chocolate chip if you were wondering) or creating new things daily. I'm a Georgia Native who moved back after 5 years living in the Midwest! It's been a dream and we met the most wonderful friends, built our careers, and are now back home to continue to live out our dreams in the Southeast. It's definitely shaped my style of photography and I hope it's well received back home!
In reality, we never planned on moving back. It turns out you miss family quite a bit when you live halfway across the country and can't travel home because of a pandemic. Amidst all the chaos, Parker (my husband and a Hyde&Co photographer), also landed his dream job as a Professor at the University of North Georgia. The week we found out, we ended up selling our home that we built to some great friends without ever even listing and started packing our bags to head south to the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains.
Something you should know is that I come from deeply creative roots having parents who are both artisans and entrepreneurs. I fought the entrepreneurial spirit for a hot minute and started my career in corporate America, quickly realizing I value making my own decisions and serving people with integrity on my own terms. Thank the good Lord above that I had the wherewithal to listen to my soul and go back to my roots (and I don't mean my hair color).
At this point, you're probably wondering where photography fits. The funny thing is, you find out a lot about yourself when you move halfway across the country and have newly acquired free time. Each weekend, Parker and I would go explore taking our hand-me-down cameras to learn our new city, as well as spend quality time together (PS - that's my love language). From this weekly adventure, we realized how much we both love to take and develop pictures.
That brings us to Hyde & Co. A collection of services through photography documenting a season, a place, a moment in time that you'll never get back, but will always remember. I chose Hyde & Co. because I wouldn't be who I am today without the company I keep and you are part of that story. Each time I meet with a client, you become a friend and an inspiration! So let's do this, friend!
If my style is something that fits you, please reach out! I would love to set up a conversation to see what you're thinking for your next set of photos.
Can't wait to hear from you!

“My favorite thing about working with Megan is that she was so into us and getting a great shot! She really put her all into making sure we received great images. My son was 9-months-old and going through his shy stage and she was able to get a smile out of him. I love that she took the time to make him smile and to just capture moments that I have framed up around our home. Our images turned out amazing. I'm obsessed and would 100% recommend her to anyone.”
