I’m a farmer’s wife, mama of three boys, and a portrait and wedding photographer for over fifteen years.  Megan Sugden Photography was established in 2005, but my interest in photography started years before at the age of sixteen when I received my very first film camera. Once it was in my hands, it never left! I have always loved taking pictures, and I still remember the good ol’ days of sending film off in the mail and waiting for the prints to return. Eventually I started developing my own negatives, spending countless hours in the darkroom and printing my own photos.  











I spent my college years studying photojournalism and graphic design at Minnesota State University Moorhead, soaking up everything I possibly could about photography. I also spent a year at Northern Arizona University, learning from amazing professors and furthering my education with advanced classes and access to the latest equipment.

I graduated from MSUM in 2004 with a bachelor's degree in Mass Comm with a minor in Photojournalism.   I switched from film to my first digital SLR, worked in freelance for a year, and officially launched Megan Sugden Photography in 2005. By the summer of 2007, I was able to resign from my day job and focus on my photography full time and I've been doing it ever since… which, for me, was a dream come true! 

I also teach photography classes and run several other photography brands including Kittson County Skies and Bowtie Bub (yes, my cat has more Instagram followers than I do!)   I am proud to offer my clients years of experience and education, photographing hundreds of weddings over the years, and I can't wait to capture YOUR wedding next!

about megan sugden photography

Let me present my family of kids, cats, and patient husband.  L-R: Me holding Whiskers, Charlie (5) holding Bub, Jasper (7) holding Sassy, Wesley (9) holding Dianne, and Nathan (40-something), who thinks four cats is just about enough. 

When I'm not wrangling kids or cats, I enjoy cooking, watching reality TV, and attempting to organize my house.
