ABOUT

I'm Mekina Saylor. 

I'm an East Coast wedding photographer who loves to create and talk business.  I've always been a social butterfly, captivated by new friends and happy people. I love a good new nick name, silly competition and I have an unwavering craving for Dominos Hawaiian pizza. And guess what?!? I'm just like you... I'm engaged too! Scroll on down to see a peek in to my life with my fiancé, Nick.

Coffee powered, zillow-holic, smiles are my jam.

hi friend!

I have instagram to thank for meeting my fiancé. Yup! Nick slid into my DM's, messaging me on instagram. We were living just a couple miles a part in Morristown, NJ.  We had never crossed paths until one happy Monday in August on our first date. By our 3rd date we made it "official" and everything just fell into place.
A few months into our relationship I asked Nick why he messaged me. After getting to know him, it's easy to see how out of character it was. Either way he told me he just had a feeling and went for it. And I'm so glad he did!
Nick and I spend our days exploring our neighborhood and getting away to Hilton Head Island whenever possible! We'll be tying the knot down South in Bluffton, SC in October and we cannot wait!

You can read all about our proposal here. :)

Heart

behind the photos 

I was four years old when I first fell in love with weddings. My mom used to catch me having pretend weddings with my dolls. Truth is not much has changed. If anything my love for a wedding day has grown. The loving embraces, the smile on your groom's face when he first sees you and the laughter filling the room as much as it does our hearts, I love it all! 

After I graduated college I knew I wanted to do something in the Wedding industry. I turned to planning, but the joy I felt when planning wasn’t the same kind of passion and love I had when capturing a wedding day. I photographed my first wedding eight years ago, and launched my business a couple years after that, the rest is history. 

Every wedding I feel that little girl inside of me jumping with joy at the fact she gets to do what she loves. 

When I’m not documenting gorgeous love stories, I enjoy some binge watching, traveling and getting some major snuggle time in with my nieces and nephews. After living in Manhattan for 5 years I love that I finally have a car and can work on my dance moves in a bit more space.
