  • Megan Forehand Photography

    It all started six years ago when my photo-loving dad gave me one of his old cameras to use for a photography course in college. It wasn't long before I fell in love with the process and knew that this was what I wanted to do. A year after getting my first camera, I started Megan Forehand Photography. Five years later, I'm still doing what I love, taking my camera everywhere and capturing moments along the way.

    I love seeing the twinkle in a groom's eye when he sees his bride for the first time and the happiness of a child, being part of the most special moments in someone's life, and creating memories that my clients can look back on for years to come. My goal is to tell your story through my lens.

Outdoor Boudoir Session | Tuscaloosa, Alabama

I am so excited to share this beautiful outdoor boudoir session on my blog! Since I first posted these, I have had so much interest in these type of sessions that it’s been hard to keep up with.. which is a good problem to have, I guess! I truly feel like every woman should do this type of session. If you are interested in booking a session, there are VERY limited spots available – meganforehandphoto@gmail.com! boudoir1boudoir2boudoir3boudoir4boudoir6boudoir7boudoir9boudoir11boudoir12boudoir13boudoir16

Dale & Elizabeth Get Engaged! | Montgomery, Alabama Photography

I have been lucky enough to shoot a few proposals but never one like this!

Dale masterminded the most perfect way to propose to Elizabeth, and I am so happy that I got to be a part of it!

How they met: These two work in the same office building, so they ran into each other a few times on the elevator. One day they got to talking and Dale asked Elizabeth to lunch and “that was that,” according to Dale. It was an elevator ride that brought them together, and what more perfect way to propose to Elizabeth than on an elevator?!

How he proposed: Dale told Elizabeth that he had to be at the Capital City Club on the 21st floor of the Regions building in Montgomery at 6:45 to accept an award. I think it’s funny that Elizabeth even asked on the way to the restaurant, “Are you nervous?” I’m sure he was! At this point, my heart was beating out of my chest, and I wasn’t even the one proposing.

There are 8 elevators on the 21st floor, so every time I heard a ding, I would run to that particular elevator and point my camera to the opening doors, hoping it would be Elizabeth and Dale behind them. There were a lot of people I surprised with a lens in their face when the elevator doors opened and quickly explained, “No, sorry, I am not paparazzi.”

Finally, I heard a ding then I heard an excited female voice behind the doors. That was my cue! I knew this time it was them! I got ready and Dale was still on one knee when the elevator doors opened. Elizabeth had happiness written all over her face! Of course, she said yes! Her ring was absolutely beautiful. Dale did such a good job!

As they got off the elevator, Dale had one more surprise for Elizabeth: their parents. It was such a happy reunion! I am so happy for this family! After some hugs and “Congratulations!” Dale and Elizabeth went to the rooftop terrace to basically freak out over what just happened! An “OH MY GOSH WE ARE ENGAGED!” moment! I am so glad I got to capture it all!

Congratulations Dale and Elizabeth! I can’t wait to capture all the fun things ahead in the next few months!

Callen + Garrett | Engagement Photography

This was such an absolute beautiful afternoon spent with Callen and Garrett! They were pretty much up for anything, which is always awesome. We started in downtown Northport, one of my favorite places to shoot, and ended at Callen’s Great Aunt and Uncle’s house. These two are obviously best buds, and their love made my job effortless. I love two people in love! I can’t wait for their wedding in March. Callen’s Aunt and Uncle even snuck in a shot at the end. It was so sweet! I didn’t even pose them!:)

Julie + Andrew | Engagement Session

One of the most asked questions I get is “where do we need to make our pictures?” My answer always is “somewhere that means something to you.” Sometimes that’s not always possible, but in this case it was! We shot this session at Andrew’s family’s lake house where he proposed to Julie. It was so much fun! They pretty much kept me laughing the whole time. I cannot wait until their wedding in May!
