SPOILER ALERT: We will be besties before you know it, so let's get to know each other

I'M morgan,
A photographer & educator in minnesota

ME IN A NUTSHELL

I'm probably sipping an oat milk latte or a white wine while snuggling my sweet pup, Moss, and watching Stranger Things with my hubby, Bradyn. If we have a free day, you gosh dang better believe we will be on the North Shore adventuring - hiking, biking, swimming, skiing, camping... you name it, we probably love it!

My sweet little family

My personal style is playful & adventurous

with natural, true-to-color edits

Here's the deal, I am all about an adventure.

Want to elope on a sailboat with your closest people surrounding you? That is 100% my cup of tea. Want to hike in to Bean and Bear Lake to take couple photos? I am so there. Want to get married in your backyard and have an epic dance party? That has my name written allll over it.

I specialize in photographing laid-back, intimate weddings and adventurous elopements. Let's strap on our hiking boots and get your dress a little dirty. We will embrace that windswept hair, and make taking photos a memorable experience.

2018

For as long as I can remember, I loved photography. When I picked up my camera again in October 2018 I was hoping to start a hobby. Spoiler alert: This became much more than that!

Quit my 9-5 and pursued photography full-time

2019

My growth was organic through word of mouth and on social media, where I built connections and shared my work.  Within 2 months of jumping full-time I was fully booked for 2019 and had a waitlist for 2020.

first calendar year with a waitlist for 2020

2020

Meet Courtney! Court is my current VA and wowza is she a saving grace. Hiring an assistant allowed me to prioritize serving my current clients and working on my business, versus working in my business on backend tasks.

WELCOMED MY FIRST TEAM MEMBER, A VIRTUAL ASSISTANT

2021

As an educator, I step along photographers not only as a mentor, but as a friend. Starting a business is hard and can feel intimidating. My goal is to help you launch a successful, profitable business.

MY BUSINESS EXPANDED & I LAUNCHED MENTOR SESSIONS

2022

What an incredible year! Between photographing weddings and adventurous elopements all over the globe, serving photographers through virtual and in-person mentor sessions, co-hosting my first in-person workshop, and moving to Duluth with my sweet family - my heart is so full! 

I hosted styled shoots, my first in-person workshoP & relocated
