Megan & Parker Hyde
Hey there, we're Megan and Parker Hyde! Thanks for dropping in to read more about our story. To start, I'm Megan, Founder and Lead Photographer at Hyde&Co. 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. Parker, my husband and best friend, is the Co-Founder and Second Photographer here at Hyde&Co. He's a wonderful cat and dog Dad, Professor, and creative soul with an amazing eye for photos! His food vice is pizza or baked ziti and he has a hard time choosing between taking the weekend to shoot photos or to go spend it on a mountain top or in the woods soaking in nature, who could blame him?
We're both Georgia Natives who moved back after 5 years living in the Midwest! Living in Ohio was a dream and we met the most wonderful friends, built our careers, our first home, and are now back home to continue to live out our dreams in the Southeast. Our time in Ohio definitely shaped our style of photography and we hope it's well received back down South!
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, 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). Parker has always been supportive as i've grown this business and more recently decided to join the team! With Parker on the team, you get more perspective per session, more variation in final images, and some quality husband and wife banter guiding your reactions throughout the session itself.
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 our style is something that fits you, please reach out! Let's set up a conversation to see what you're thinking for your next set of photos.
I 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.”
