- Morgan, Owner and Lead Photographer
Planning a wedding (or any session) is extremely fun and exciting. My job is to keep it that way. My blogs feature past sessions, weddings, how-to's and other tips to make your special day or photo shoot the best it can be!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you travel for weddings?
Yes! Of course! I'm always up for an adventure!
What education do you have?
I am proud to say that I went to one of the top art schools in the world, Savannah College of Art & Design! I majored in photography and double minored in fashion photography and advertising photography. Although I went to school for fashion and advertising photography, I have been shooting wedding since the age of fifteen!
Do I need a second photographer?
I will never tell you what to do on your day. . . I mean, it is your day. Although, I may tell you to hug your groom or tilt you head a bit. No, you don't NEED a second photographer, but I think you will want one. There’s plenty of benefits to having a second photographer. Having two photographers allows for one photographer to document the bride getting ready and the other to document the groom. During the ceremony, you can get multiple angles which is awesome! Lastly, the one not many clients think of, is having someone to get the "safe" photos while I can get a little creative. The images that will suprise you when you get to lay your eyes on your gallery.
Do you just shoot wedding and branding photography?
Absolutely not! MDB Photography has experience in many fields. In fact, over the past 8 years, Morgan has photographed weddings, branding, advertising, fashion, families, headshots, seniors, corporate events and even assisted on a NHL media day - Go Panthers!
Do you only book wedding packages?
Absolutely not! Every wedding is different and that is what makes it YOUR day! My packages are popular for many couples, but sometimes it's better to customize a package just for you. We can work together to create a package that fits for your special day.
How do you describe your approach to a wedding day?
My approach is similar to having your best friend by your side throughout your whole day. By the time your wedding day comes we will actually be friends. Mostly because I love each and every one of my couples, but there's also the purpose of you feeling comfotable around me. I'm there for you every step of planning. I'm simply there to document the intimate moments. The real moments between you and your future husband, the first time your dad sees you in your gown and the first tear that rolls down your mom's cheek. I try to intefere as little as possible so as many of those sweet moments evolve and I can capture them so you can relive them for years to come.
Do you edit the photographs?
Yes! Every image that you receive in your online gallery has been hand-edited, one by one. No batching in groups or mass-producing final products. Some images also require special attention above and beyond the individual editing process. For example, lip stick on teeth or a scratch on the ring bearer's face. We got it covered!
Does MDB Photography provide videography?
We do not. I am a photographer. I specialize in photography in order to give you the absolute best results. Although, I have worked with many extraordinary videographers that I would be more than happy to refer you to!
What is an online gallery?
The online gallery that comes with each of my sessions is a private (password protected) section of my website where you can view, download and print images.
How do we reserve MDBP?
Good question! In order to reserve your date and time, we require a signed contract and fifty percent desposit. The retainer/deposit will be subtracted from the total payment. The remaining balance is not due until the day of the photo shoot/wedding day.
