FEATURED MEMBER-- RODEO & CO PHOTOGRAPHY

Let me introduce myself- I’m Meg Hamilton- the happy owner and photographer of Rodeo & Co. Photography, nestled in the northern woods of New Hampshire. I am blessed to live in a little cottage surrounded by trees with my husband, and our two little boys Marcus & Hank {ages 7 & 5}. 

My work has been described among my peers & clients as: crisp, bright, clean, happy & inspired by the love and emotion of my subjects. From the very beginning, I have strived to offer a true blend of traditional & journalist styles for all of clients. This ensures that the full scope of their wedding day story is told after the fact. 

I am thrilled with new opportunities to explore the U.S. of A and beyond with my camera. I am available for worldwide travel and crave the opportunity to work with travel-bug clientele. I love the seeing a new property with fresh eyes!

Tara: Tell me how you first got involved with your business. 

Meg: Honestly, I’ve been into photography since middle school… but I guess what really got the ball rolling on my business was when I used to take pictures as an arson investigator. 

Tara: What is the most surprising thing you’ve had happen to you on the job?

Meg: I was photographing at a styled shoot, and a huge moose wandered out of the woods!  

Tara: What is your ideal Friday night?

Meg: Bringing my boys to the movies (and eating lots of popcorn!)

Tara: What is something you like to do during your free time?

Meg: pushing myself out of my comfort zone.

Tara: How do you like your steak cooked?

Meg: Medium-rare.

Tara: What are three life memories you recall most frequently and why?
