Authentic, joyful storytelling images for real couples who are best friends. Documentary wedding photography for down-to-earth humans. Feminist, LGBTQ affirming, Interracial, POC, multi-faith. I've got your back.
Hi, my beautiful friends! I'm Meera. I specialize in undoing the harm caused by the Mainstream “Romance” Industry…by helping couples turn inwards to focus on what really matters most, and by creating storytelling imagery in a way that centers identity, community, emotion and the authentic voices of my people.
I'm blessed to be married to my soul mate; so it's always an incredible experience to work with others who have also found their soul mates - to see what that's like outside of my own relationship.
A soul mate isn't the "perfect" partner or human...it's a person whose presence somehow grounds you so deeply that your partnership opens you up to new possibilities, to evolution and expansion within yourselves and together.
If you know me - in any way - you know my husband, Eliot. You know him in person, or you know him through a million anecdotes and stories that begin with the phrase “Eliot and I have been talking about…” or “Eliot recently said something…”
Those that are fortunate enough to know Eliot personally know him for his astonishing kindness, his amazing way with kids, his generosity of spirit, his unexpected love of South Indian food, for his absurdist and dry humor, for his advocacy as an educator, his strange love of running (strange to me, anyway, as a profound lover of NOT running), for a million other things I simply couldn’t list in full. The way he joyfully assists at and contributes to nearly all the weddings that I photograph. His protectiveness. His patience, from which I’ve learned greater patience. His very particular way of stacking the dishwasher to “optimize space”. (Y’all.)
…Now Dogs, Dogs say I love you constantly and every day. They are the best of us, covered in fur. But today, the day of your wedding, Socrates doesn’t poop in the aisle and if that isn’t love, I don’t know what is. And he spent the day wandering with a cheery grin and slightly manic eyes, because dogs may not understand all our goings-ons but they sure do understand what happiness feels like.
