Meet Meagan Jayawardana - The Owner and Photographer of Meagan Paige Photography

Hi there, I am Meagan from Meagan Paige Photography! I first picked up a DSLR camera when I was 13 and I have been taking photos ever since. I love how you can capture such amazing memories for your clients so when they look back at that photo they can remember the moment, how they felt, and how small their children used to be!

Fun Fact about Me, I am a total dog mom! I have three crazy dogs who I love more than life itself. Since I work from home, I always joke they are my coworkers who never get any work done. But they are great listeners and make my day more interesting, so thats a plus!

When I am not taking photographs, I am planning new renovation ideas for our home, watching the Home Edit, editing or collecting vintage cameras. My husband always jokes that I do not know how to relax and if I didn't have any work to do I would go crazy. I mean he isn't wrong but I truly love my job and I don't know what I would do without it!

I am also a total Prop Hoarder! The word hoarder used to get me really upset mainly because people would use it in a bad way, saying I keep things for no reason at all. But I now look at it as a asset and a positive thing. My clients book with me because I have an extensive prop collection. This collection allows me to make unique setups and make any of my client's visions come true. The only time I ever see my prop collection as a bad thing is when I have to move and I fill the biggest UHAUL TWICE!!!!

I love to travel and I have been to the following places so far: Sri Lanka, Ireland, Punta Cana, Mexico, Las Vegas, Finland, Spain, Hawaii, and beyond. I grew up in Las Vegas and lived their for 10 years. My parents owned a sign company and actually did a bunch of signs for the Las Vegas Strip. Living in Vegas has made me really appreciate the beauty of Calgary. I honestly hate the extreme heat Las Vegas has so Calgary summers are actually way better for me. Plus Calgary is SO GREEN with beautiful mountains, rather than a desert so I definitely love the scenery here. I am a dual citizen. I was born in Calgary, moved to Las Vegas when I was 5, and then moved back to Calgary when I was 13. I have been so almost all the states on the west side like California, Montana, Idaho, Arizona, Utah, etc.

This year I got married to the love of my life. He is definitely my other half and the amount of times that we are thinking the EXACT SAME THING is insane. We have been together for 7 years now and 2022 was definitely a big year for us. Within a couple months, we bought a house, renovated it so I could have my dream studio, and got married at the Lake House in South Calgary. You can see photos from our wedding here:

My husband is a BIG help with my business, he is always putting up with my crazy ideas and helping me setup new backdrops.
