About Megan Dougherty


Hey! I'm Megan. I've been a photographer for 13 years and I love what I get to call my career! I truly enjoy meeting the people that come into my life because of photography. 

As I was growing up, models, actors, entertainers, musicians and makeup artists were scattered throughout the years of my life. Most nights I would be in the darkroom with my dad (Brian Dougherty, of Dougherty Photographics) as he developed the days worth of film and I would help him move prints from chemical trays. My dad loved photography, and made it his world.

I was home-schooled by my mother for middle and high school, and then attended the Atlanta College of Art where I studied graphic design. I'm a unique individual, and I don't like to follow trends "just because". I embrace the things that make me different, and am not afraid of being silly! As fate would have it, because of the Covid-19 pandemic, I am currently homeschooling my son for 1st grade. It's funny how things come full circle.

I live in Suwanee, GA with my husband, our son and our chocolate lab / german shepherd mix pup. When I'm not shooting, I like to travel and explore. I love spending time with my family, friends and I love being outside in the warm sunshine. Being with my family is my favorite thing in the world. I always try to make the best out of any situation and am happy just about anywhere!
