About Morgan

If you want to twirl around in the rain, chase your children across the sand or cuddle up with your spouse on a Sunday morning; I'm the photographer for you.


Morgan Ellis - Photographer

Hey! I’m Morgan

I’m an East Coast based photographer living in Philadelphia with my stud of a husband and the many houseplants I can’t seem to keep alive. I’m obsessed with handwritten love letters, rainy afternoons, and road trips to the coast of Maine. 



From your first anniversary to your fiftieth, and every moment in between, your story matters.


With the choice of dozens of photographers, it can be a daunting task to find the one with the perfect combination of artistry and style to tell your story. Even more difficult is finding someone who has that "something more" that you've been searching for. To me, that something more is emotion. I'm all about authentic emotions and unposed moments. Nothing compares to the way you feel when for the first time you see a photograph that has captured a feeling you’ve never had words for, and when that feeling becomes something visual and tangible - something you can, quite literally, hold onto and run your fingers along the edges of - it’s magic. I believe that photographs that capture honest and raw emotion have the ability not only to tell your story, but to remind you every time you look at them that you are loved. 

I serve best when I’m able to get to know you on a personal level, you're a spouse, a parent, the best part of someone's day, and this is exactly how I see you, not as just another set of names on my calendar. I want to hear your story - how you met, what you can’t get enough of. Getting to know you  allows me to better capture your love as it unfolds naturally; in the nuances of a gentle touch, a nose scrunch, or a lose-your-balance kind of laugh. If you want your story preserved with intimate and emotive photographs - we’re a great fit.

Together, we'll create a session based on your unique needs. I’ll pose you here and there to set the moment, but overall, the time you spend at your session will be a time to slow down and enjoy the ones you love. You’ll run toward the tide, kiss your spouse, slow dance around the room, light up as you speak about what you love about one another; those in-between moments really are the best. I’ll guide you, give prompts, and make sure we’re documenting the moments you've envisioned, but overall, keeping it natural allows me to capture you exactly as you are.

From the big milestones to the little details of daily life, I truly believe that these days are worthy of documenting.

Let's make magic.
