Having never done a couples photo shoot before, I feared that it would feel awkward and that the pictures wouldn’t turn out how I hoped because of something my boyfriend and I would do wrong as the subjects. Morgan was completely helpful at putting us at ease and giving prompts, it felt so natural and the whole session just flowed. Having that time that I don’t always get to spend with my boyfriend was my favorite part, and then even better, getting to see that time from outside of us. Our pictures turned out above and beyond my expectations, Morgan captured us perfectly. When I think the words, “couple photo shoot” and when I see the results of Morgan’s shoots - those two things are not the same. Morgan exceeds all expectations.

Morgan photographed myself and my two little girls, and I will cherish those photos forever. She was so good with the girls, soft and kind, patient and fun, they really responded to her. As a photographer myself, I have had lots of pictures taken by other photographers, but what Morgan was able to capture was truly unique and one of a kind - she documented how I feel about being my daughters’ mother. It was big smiles, belly laughs, playing and tickling, they even brought their “lovies” along to be a part of our session, because that is who they are at this moment in time. I am so lucky to have these images forever.

Fine art photographic print by Philadelphia family photographer Morgan Ellis

We feel honored to have met such a talented and kind photographer and human being. Morgan Ellis, thank you, for your talent is in truth, and the truth can hold beauty despite the pain.
— Danielle W., A Motherhood Session


I feel so eternally blessed to have been gifted with the opportunity to work with Morgan. Her ability to gleefully engage and guide my very energetic toddler’s mind was effortless, genuine, and flowing. Her tender, accepting hand in aligning stray hairs was completely natural, calm, and comfortable. I trusted in full faith that with her eyes, we would be truly seen. The results confirmed what my heart already knew. In truth, I pray that my daughter sees me, and the world sees us, the way Morgan does. In a snapshot of an hour, I know that if documentation of love is ever called for, I want it to be seen in just this light.
— Katharine M., A Motherhood Session

I wanted our engagement session to be relaxed and laid back, but still something beautiful that we would always have as a special keepsake. We ended up shooting our photos in our first home together, which makes them that much more special. We loved having Morgan come into our home and hang out with us, she is so easy to talk to and she really made us feel comfortable right from the start, plus, she made us feel like supermodels!
— Gianna M., An In-Home Engagement Session


I had the pleasure of connecting with Morgan through my wedding planner last year. It was the BEST thing to happen during our wedding planning journey. Morgan took our engagement photos and to say I was blown away would be an understatement!!! Not only is Morgan so kind, friendly and able to make you feel at ease, but her pictures were INSANE. I hold these pictures near and dear to my heart. I recommend Morgan to EVERYONE! She captures the subtle moments that are full of feeling, which make her such a spectacular and unique photographer.
— Catherine H., An Engagement Session

Morgan is super talented, not to mention kind and professional. I was immediately drawn to her work because of the colors, the way she works with her surroundings, and the intense emotion she has an apt for capturing between subjects. We immediately hit it off and she was great with answering my endless questions, as well as prompt in responding to emails. She made the session fun and carefree, and her turn-around time after the shoot was also very impressive. We love the gallery we received and will always cherish the moments she captured.

Skipped everything else and scrolled all the way here? I get it - cost is an important factor in deciding which photographer you choose, that’s why the investment page is one of the most frequently visited on a website.

The thing is, it’s almost impossible to communicate to you through a website the way you’re going to feel when you see your images on your screen for the first time. Harder still, to put into words the excitement you’ll feel when you hold those moments in your hands, when you turn the thick pages of your album and fall in love with your family all over again. It really is magical - but you know that, that’s why you’re here, so let’s chat about how much things cost:

Local Sessions 

(within 50 miles of Philadelphia)

COUPLES    $850


The above session fee includes all of the expertly-edited, high-resolution digital photographs from your session presented in an online gallery for viewing and sharing, (the digital files are yours to keep forever). I’m all about tangible, printed memories - If you are too, I'd be thrilled to design an heirloom album or custom art piece for your home. The archival quality products that I offer are the finest available, ensuring that your legacy is preserved with nothing but the best - art that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

I truly believe that the photographs that document your love are best preserved through print. If we share that belief, I’m here to help you.

Morgan is beyond talented! I’m a photographer myself and from the moment I saw her work I knew I needed a session scheduled. I love how she captured our family and all of the emotions you can see through the pictures are beyond words. I will cherish these pictures forever and have them printed all over my home.
— Carolina D., A Family Vacation Session



What kind of photography service can I book with you?

I’m currently booking couple and family portrait sessions. This includes engagements, anniversaries, honeymoon, vacation, or “just because” sessions.  

Do you travel?

Absolutely! I’m passport ready and will travel just about anywhere you want your love documented. Travel is calculated based on location (flight + lodging + rental car), and if you' get your friends to book, you can split the travel fee!

I read that you’re in South Carolina and Pennsylvania, what’s the deal?

Great question! I’m based in Media, PA (a cute little town about 20 minutes outside of Philly), but I bounce back and forth between here and Beaufort SC often. I met my husband in Beaufort and I have four adorable nieces and nephews who live there now, so that along with those beautiful Lowcountry landscapes are what keep bringing me back. For those reasons, my travel fee for SC is heavily discounted to a flat $175.

What should we wear to our session?

Wear whatever you feel comfortable in that makes you feel amazing! I’ll consult with you on outfit planning and share color recommendations and clothing guides during our session planning.

How many different outfits can we wear?

Feel free to bring along a second outfit if you’d like! I don’t recommend more than one outfit change during a session because the additional time spent changing can take away from the time we have to create beautiful images together.

How long will our session last?

Typically sessions last 60-90 minutes, although each portrait session is unique and timing can vary. If we’re having fun and it takes a bit longer, thats A-okay!

When do we receive our photos?

Your contract guarantees you will receive your full gallery of edited images within 30 days of your session, although current turn around time for portraits is about 3 weeks.

How are the images delivered?

Your images are delivered in an online viewing gallery where you can download your digital files, share with friends and family, and explore print and product information.

How far in advance should I book?

Because I accept a limited amount of clients per month, it’s best to schedule your session as soon as you are able. Most clients book 2-3 months in advance.

So, you offer products, what kind?

Although all of your photographs and a print release are included with the session, most people do choose to purchase printed products as well. From wall portraits to heirloom albums, I offer the best archival quality products available and am happy to help you design the perfect pieces for your home.

I heard you loved mint-chocolate chip ice cream, green or white?

Green! Absolutely, green.

I’d like to book - what’s the cost?

Portrait sessions begin at $850. A $450 deposit is required to book your date and the remainder is due 2 weeks prior to your session.
