Are you the type of couple who says F traditions and plans on having a day that actually reflects your bad ass and beautiful love? Welcome to our little funky corner of the wedding industry where we encourage you to think outside the Crate + Barrel wedding registry box and plan a wedding or elopement day that's intentional and wicked fun - and we'll capture the photos to prove it!
From our first meeting to the moment you sit down to review your gallery after the big day, we'll be here for you to bounce ideas off of and hype you up. No matter your size, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, we love your love and want more than to just show up and take a few photos on your day. We want to be a fun part of the experience of the day, get to know you throughout the process, and photograph your epic love story!
That's Where We Come In...
Hey, friends! I'm Meaghan.
I'm your friendly neighborhood photographer taking up residence just outside of Providence, RI - aka the greatest city in the world - with my husband and second shooter, Evan, and our pup, Arya (yes, that Arya from Game of Thrones). When I'm not off photographing lovers like you, you can find me eating my way around the world, rewatching Broad City for the fifth time, or seeing Evan's band play at our local music venues.
"Remember how the stars stole the night away."
I seriously have the coolest job in the world - capturing some of the most emotional and intimate moments between you and your lover on one of the most important days of your life! I work with some of the most beautiful and unique individuals across the country, and for that reason I feel it wouldn't be right to talk about Rhode Tripper Photography without telling you about our values.
We firmly believe...
All bodies are beautiful Love is love
Black Lives Matter
Adventure is everywhere Embrace the weird
More than just your photographer...
I've got "Wed Cred" babayy!
I come to you with over 8 years of experience in the wedding industry - having helped 100s of people and their wedding parties find their dresses for their wedding days, as a bridal stylist at Alfred Angelo Bridal then planning and coordinating 60 weddings across Connecticut and Rhode Island as an event coordinator at A Thyme to Cook. Through it all, I felt something was missing in the wedding industry for the unconventional. I yearned to work with nontraditional couples and be there to capture the whole day as it unfolds rather than being constantly behind the scenes. Thus, Rhode Tripper Photography was born! Welcome to my next adventure combining my love of weddings and elopements and a lifelong passion for photography.
Now, what does all that mean for you? You're not just investing in a photographer - you're gaining a wedding buff who will help you fluff your train, give you crazy amounts of decor ideas and planning insight, capture all those little details and moments that are insanely YOU, and carefully craft a flexible timeline for your day. And you'll have full access to an emergency bag with all the wedding and elopement essentials on your day (did you know that clear nail polish can be used for more than fixing a polish chip?) - so that you won't have to worry about a thing. Just relax, enjoy the hell out of your day, and let me snap away!
Here is what just a few of my couples have to say about me during my time as a planner....
"[Meaghan] was wonderful throughout the entire process! She is truly one of the sweetest people and always happy to answer any questions we had! She even came to our final venue walk through so she could be there with us so everyone was on the same page with final details."
- Justine + Kyle -
"Meaghan answered seemingly endless emails and texts, and even an hour long phone call to make sure that every last detail was perfect... all while planning HER OWN wedding. She was patient, kind, and always reassuring. Meaghan has the ability to make you feel like you are simultaneously the only wedding she is coordinating with her attention and detail and the thousandth wedding she has done with her confidence and execution... Meaghan became a true friend along the way and made the entire process feel personal and comfortable."
- Heather + Kevin -
"From our email interactions, to our first meet, to our wedding day, every single step of the process was fun, easy and painless. Meaghan was an absolute dream to work with, and no question or task that I ever asked or requested was ever a bother or an inconvenience. Having her there through the planning process was like having an old friend you trust implicitly taking care of all the most important details of your day."
- Katie + Greg -
"Meaghan was our coordinator and could probably plan the Oscars without a hitch...she was a total dynamo. She was accessible, friendly, detail-oriented, and thoughtful. She was responsive to questions and ideas, and also instilled so much trust that there was zero stress in working with her."
- Jen + Chris -

The RTP Style
On your wedding day, your moments and details will be documented in a way that captures their essence naturally and artistically. We give more guidance than we do directing you into exact poses because we want you to look at a photo and say "That's so us!" not "That's just like these other 20 photos I saw on Pinterest." Not to worry though, you sometimes need to capture a few formals for the traditionalists in your life and we swear we'll make them as quick and fun as possible!
Your photos will be edited only by Meaghan with a detailed eye and an artistic flair that reflects the beauty of your day as it happened. The end product is a gallery of photos that are reminiscent of moody vintage film and polaroids with a little bit of grain, the occasional light leaks, and a whole lot of beautiful movement and moments frozen in time so that you can relive the story of your day forever!
"The power of love is a curious thing."
