I am a big fan of Matthew Morgan Photography. Always have been. The photos he shows on his blog and website are outstanding and I hired him because I thought it was a no brainer. I was completely disappointed though by the photos I got back. I felt Matt didn't edit the photos hardly at all. I even asked for some raw images so I can edit them myself. Every raw image I received was extremely dark. As a professional I would imagine you need to know how to expose your images in all sorts of different lighting but it was almost as if he didn't try. So in turn all my photos are dark & show every wrinkle, blemish, etc that you can imagine.

I also provided a list of my family members that I wanted photos with. When it was time for these photos he was very rushed and didn't even have the list with him. I was the one yelling out my families names and trying to get people together, as a bride this shouldn't be my job. Now my husband and I barely have any photos with our families on our wedding day. Not to mention he stood us in direct sunlight and all of us were squinting.

I think if my husband and I were a "model material" couple he would have tried harder for us. Our wedding wasn't benefiting him in any way so I think that is why he didn't give us the "quality work" you see on his blog and website. I am sad and disappointed I didn't shop around more.

Matthew photographed my multicultural 3-day-long wedding this past July, and also shot engagement photos this past April. Though he is based in Orange County, he traveled to San Diego for the engagement shoot and to San Luis Obispo for the wedding.

He is exceptionally talented and was a pleasure to work with. He was very easy to get ahold of, and was very professional in both our email/phone communications and most importantly, on the big day(s.) He was always on time, too, and scouted each location before shooting. In more than one case, he uncovered secret spots that made for the some of our favorite photos!

My favorite thing about him is his patience. He doesn't take a ton of random shots and hope for the best. He clearly has a vision and has the technical knowledge to make that vision come to life. He knew how to wait for the right moments in the right places in the right light. Knew when to rush, knew when to be easy, knew when to be stern/demanding with dozens of random family members meandering all over the place.

Other stuff you soon-to-be-married couples want to know about:

-Pricing: Competitive. Worth every cent. Photo booth is worth it.
-Work ethic: 3 days in a row. 150 miles from home. 6+ hours of coverage per day. Never complained.
-Speed: Got all of our photos back to us within 3 months. Maybe 2 and a half months? Thousands of pictures. Gigabytes.
-Experience: He has done this before. Many times.
-Creativity: Your wedding photos will not look like everyone elses. (They will look better.)
-Seems like he really, really vibes with vintagey stuff and DIY decoration with lots of details and personal touches. Seems like he loves the outdoors, too.

Anecdote: After finishing wedding party photos, my wife and I were in Matt's car, rushing to a secret spot that he had scouted out. We were losing light fast. Probably had 5 minutes left before sunset. Maybe 10. All of a sudden, a family of deer darted out from some bushes about 15 or 20 yards in front of the car, from the garden area where we'd had the ceremony. Immediately, he yelled at his assistant:

"GET THE CAMERA! GET THE CAMERA!"

I cannot recommend Matt enough. HIRE HIM.

Matt Morgan is a timeless photographer. I am so privilege to be able to say he photographed our engagement and wedding pictures. He was able to capture all of the classic moments along side the unique behind the scenes imagines that sometimes pass by at the blink of an eye. He truly has a special gift to arrange people in a way that is natural, comfortable, artistic and semantically eye pleasing. I absolutely loved my wedding pictures and continue to receive endless amounts of complements on them. I would recommend Matt to anyone needing an amazing photographer.

Matthew was amazing at managing a wild wedding party without ever being anything but cool and professional. He understood the aesthetic we were going for and nailed it! It was so nice to not have to remind our photographer of the pics we wanted, instead he was reminding us of our schedule and kept us on track. Every bride I know is jealous that they didn't have him as a photographer!

Matt shot my engagement and wedding photos. He was great from the moment we met at a little coffee shop in Dana Point. I tend to have lots of crazy ideas and he smiled and rolled with them like a champ. His location choices were spot on. I arrived to the engagement session with an arsenal of props and he just laughed and went with it like a pro! Every photo was a winner, impossible to pick just one that we love.

On the wedding day he and his assistant arrived early and cased the joint out before we even got there! With an unexpected delay in my arrival, his time on all our planned photos was tremendously shortened but he handled it with grace and professionalism, even managing to sneak me and my husband away for a few moments. He managed to capture EVERY SINGLE important moment and them some. He also knew how to push things along without ever making us feel rushed and knew when to move on to something else. I love that he blended in seamlessly with our silly personalities. Matt has a knack for capturing those tiny fleeting moments, a glance here, a laugh there. And he hunts out the smallest details that you may forget to take in during the whirlwind wedding day.

Matt has a great work flow, delivering the finished product on time and leaving us with more amazing photos than I ever expected! USE HIM, seriously, you won't be sorry. :)

My husband and I met Matthew Morgan because he did the photography for my brother-in-law’s wedding. Matthew did such an awesome job that we hired him for our own wedding. It was one of the best investments that we made for our wedding day.

I have always felt very awkward in front of the camera, and as a bride, the last thing that I wanted to feel on my wedding day was awkward. As it turns out, Matthew made me feel so comfortable from the moment that he arrived. He was so polite and professional.

And I love, love, LOVE all of the pictures that he took of our wedding. I have literally looked at them a hundred times and I can’t get over how amazingly well he captured our day. From the posed shots to the more candid shots he got everything right. He has such a cool unique style and such a great eye that each picture is gorgeous.

We got so many compliments from friends and family on our pictures. I would highly recommend Matthew Morgan for any wedding.
