Lafayette, Indiana photographer, Megan Pettry, owner of Creative Edge has one goal in mind when photographing anything: to capture it's soul in an artful way. Megan wants every image to be "a feast for the eyes and food for the soul".
Megan's background in photography is extensive including a Bachelor's Degree in Photography and Related Media from Purdue University in 2007, Assistant for Sports Illustrated Cover in 2006, Professional Photographers of Indiana Board Memeber, Photojournalist for Helen Woman's Magazine and the Purdue Exponent, worked with companies such as Coca-Cola and Shutterfly,Cedar Point Amusement Park, Carowinds Amusement Park, Best Western Hotels, Indianapolis Symphonic Choir, Purdue University Musical Organization, Fox Restaurant Concept, and was director of The Insider Studio Couture Bridal Photography Workshop in 2010.

Megan toured with American Idol's Janis Joplin-esque, Amanda Overmyer, off and on for a year capturing everything from on-stage, live action images to candid unforgettable moments on the band bus and behind the scenes with fans. Megan was able to travel to parts of the mid-west, east coast, southern US and Northern Arizona with the gang. Sometimes she'd even get them to stop at off-the-wall locations in order to snap a few promo photos (ask about stopping at the Motorcycle Graveyard)!
Today, Megan is calling her hometown of Lafayette, Indiana her home-base after spending a 5-year stint in Arizona.
In her free time, Megan loves to practice yoga, camp, kayak hike with her dog, read, and sample raw foods and juices. MmMmmmmm!
