Outstanding Wedding Photojournalism
The people who come to us for wedding photography are often looking to capture a little of that Vermont magic that they have felt at some point in their life. Using composition, light, moments, and the beautiful surrounding scenery, we aim to bring still images to life and allow you to remember the day as vividly as you felt in that moment. Whether you spent time here in the summers as a kid, skied here, went to school here, or call Vermont home and are planning your wedding here, we understand why the mountains call to you!
Hey there! We are Megan and Jacob Hannah, and we started Hannah Photography with the goal of creating a unique wedding photography experience for those who might be looking for something a little more unscripted and unposed. What does this mean? Our goal is to tell the story of your day. The best way for us to do that is to be a friendly presence, always in the right spot to capture the moment, but without interfering or directing. Our associate, Josh Kuckens, shares our philosophy and background in photojournalism and is the perfect addition to our team.

Lead Photographer | Studio Manager
I graduated from RIT with a degree in photojournalism, and spent several several years as a newspaper photojournalist. Shortly after Megan and I got engaged, we decided to move back to my home state of Vermont, get married and start our wedding photography business. There are a lot of things that remain true in both journalism and weddings for me: I’m always looking to tell the story, and I’m fearless about getting those photos.
Now, as our twin girls grow, I’m even more keenly aware of the importance of family, generations, and their legacies in photos. Wedding photojournalism allows me to tell stories that showcase family, emotion, and love. In my spare time when I’m not chasing kids or chickens, I continue to work as a freelance photojournalist with the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post.
I grew up in Nebraska and met Jacob when he was working as a newspaper photojournalist. I was working in insurance at the time but soon picked up photography as a passion. After we got engaged Jacob convinced me to try out life in his home state of Vermont and I absolutely love it. We have twin daughters, crazy cats, free-range chickens, mountain views and swimming holes, and life is just a little slower and a little more enchanted here.
When I transitioned full time into journalistic wedding photography with Jacob in 2012, I found that I loved the creative outlet and working with people on their wedding day. I love all the parts of the wedding day, from the quiet moments to the big and bold emotions. Capturing the found moments of the day and working with people is a true joy for me.
I grew up in Long Island and central Connecticut before attending RIT, where I graduated with a degree in photojournalism. After graduating, I worked for several publications around the country before settling down in Vermont. In addition to photographing weddings, I currently work as a staff photojournalist at the Barre-Montpelier Times Argus.
My strength in narrative and documentary photography transitions perfectly to weddings. My goal is to tell the story of your day as inconspicuously as possible and believe weddings present some of the best opportunities for intimate, storytelling photography.
I live in Hardwick with my partner, Emily, and our two Maine Coon cats, Rupert and Ralph, and our french bulldog, Julian.
