Meet Megan Gaudette of Megan Simpson Photography in Central Denver

Today we’d like to introduce you to Megan Gaudette.

Megan, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Photography has always been a passion of mine but after second shooting for a wedding photographer, I knew I needed to branch out and pursue my own storytelling business. I love family photography for the chaos and I love wedding photography for the many micro-moments that make up one of those most memorable days of our lives.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I have spent most of my years in this business straddling two jobs to make things work and establish myself. Taking the leap into photography full time was both nerve-wracking and exhilarating. The pressure of owning your own business is something no one can prepare you for but Denver has such an amazing network of creatives that have been a huge support to me.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about Megan Simpson Photography – what should we know?
I am a portrait and wedding photographer who adores the storytelling of photography. I don’t want you to look at a gallery of static images with robotic poses. I want you to open a gallery filled with adventure, movement and emotion. I want you to see your day as it evolved organically, without all the interjections and coaching for pretty poses. I know how it feels to dread getting photos taken and have made it my mission for no one to feel that way through my work. Cozy, fun, happy photos make my heart full and I want you to walk away feeling the same.

Any shoutouts? Who else deserves credit in this story – who has played a meaningful role?
I feel blessed on the daily to be a Colorado photographer. There is such a strong network of amazing photographers who put community over competition. I continue to be inspired by their art and their openness to building up other creatives and wouldn’t be where I am today without their motivation and support.
