We all have a story

filled with in-between moments. Stolen glances, belly laughs, and gentle touches. Your first home together and the way laughter echoes through a living room piled high with boxes. The goosebumps on your skin as you sprint hand in hand across the sand and into the near-freezing ocean. Inhaling that newborn smell while your first child sleeps in your arms, her tiny hand coiled around your finger.

Every love story is overflowing with beautiful, in-between moments. 

You want to look back and see photographs that emphasize the emotion and love that you feel in these moments, photographs that will preserve your story. 

That's where I come in. 




Morgan Ellis is a portrait photographer based in Beaufort, SC and Media, PA.


I'm Morgan! Killer of houseplants and capturer of emotion. I'm happiest when I'm standing by the ocean in the pouring rain with a camera in hand - although cuddled up on the sofa with my husband and a bowl of mint chocolate chip ice cream is definitely a close second.

I love handwritten letters, thunderstorms, and people who aren’t afraid to let go a little. If you wouldn’t hesitate to get your feet dirty or your dress a little wet, we’d be a good fit.


Morgan captured us perfectly. When I hear and think the words, “couples photo shoot” and when I see the results of Morgan’s shoots - those two things are not the same. Morgan exceeds all expectations.

As a child, I could often be found sitting cross-legged on the floor surrounded by an enormous circle of photographs from the shoe-box beneath my bed. Those photographs transcended time, and that box is still my most valued possession. 

I want that for you too. In the age of endless cell phone snapshots and photos living and dying on a Facebook page, I believe in the tangible photograph. I believe that printing is preserving, and I believe your story is worth preservation.




Because your memories deserve the best.

What Morgan was able to capture was truly unique and one of a kind. She documented how I feel about being my daughter’s mother. I am so lucky to have these images forever.
