Jacob and Megan Hannah are a husband and wife team specializing in documentary wedding photography. Jacob grew up in Vermont and attended the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), graduating with a degree in photojournalism. Upon graduation, Jacob worked as a staff photographer for the Watertown Daily Times in Watertown, New York and the Lincoln Journal Star in Lincoln, Nebraska. In addition to photographing weddings, Jacob also freelances for The New York Times, The Washington Post, and The Wall Street Journal.
Megan grew up in Nebraska and has a background in business. After meeting Jacob while he was working in Nebraska, Megan picked up the camera and has been photographing weddings with Jacob since. Since returning to Vermont in 2012, they have photographed hundreds of weddings together.
They approach photography the same way they approach life - with enthusiasm and as a team. Their goal at every wedding is to create unique and lasting images that tell your story and allow you to relive your day for years to come.
Jacob and Megan live in the small town of Lincoln, Vermont with their twin daughters, Nora and Charlotte, a couple of crazy cats, and a rambunctious flock of backyard chickens.
Our work was recently featured in LIT, a book showcasing the lighting techniques of the world’s best wedding photographers.
“One of Jacob and Megan Hannah’s past clients hit the nail on the head with his statement: ‘In short, they are everything one could want in a wedding photographer, and then some.’ This kind and professional duo make the process of hiring and working with a photographer easier than you ever thought possible, being organized, technically superior, and always in the middle of the action without ever being in the way.”

With a background in photojournalism, Jacob and Megan take a true documentary approach to photographing your wedding or family. For the majority of your wedding day, there will minimal direction as they capture the moments unfolding naturally, the exception being during the time specifically designated for portraits when they will step in and clearly guide you into the best poses while keeping things light and relaxed.
Whether you are having a backyard tent wedding, an elegant ballroom wedding, a rustic barn wedding, or an outdoorsy camp wedding, Jacob and Megan will capture the unique personality of your day in their own creative style.
