I'm Morgan, California based film photographer and Super 8 videographer

And from where I’m standing, materialism and pageantry keep taking over everyone’s wedding experience, and I’m over it.

Film is for folks who live slowly and love wholly

In an era defined by overconsumption, micro trends, and hyper-curated everything...

analog feels ironically refreshing.

It was the summer of 2018, and I had just finished second-shooting a brutal 16 hour wedding day in OC. After leaving, the lead photographer and I vented until 4am about how materialistic and unrealistic the wedding industry is becoming.

We craved artistic freedom. We missed substance. We felt nostalgic for spontaneity and *real* human interactions. We saw so much cookie cutter content going around, and everything looked and felt so staged.

Together, we romanticized the analog times our parents enjoyed. How time moved slower…

There was no pressure to chase endlessly changing trends.

No sorting through 327 barely discernible images for the “perfect” pose…

Every snapshot was either perfect, or simply what it was. That was the nature of film.

So, 6 second videos can take several seats,

my love for film is here to stay.

This heart-to-heart motivated me to dig out my old film cameras and start experimenting again. I was immediately hooked. It’s still crazy to me how the cameras that are older than me feel the most refreshing.

Film and super 8 challenge me to think about each shot, and appreciate each exposure. I become more present, more deliberate with my technique. I hone a sharper, more observant eye. There is no “spray and pray” with film - mastery is key and every shot has to be intentional.

With film, I’m truly in the moment with you.

It has completely shifted my artistic style and creative process.

And that’s it. There’s no going back.

Is it cliche to say film is a lifestyle?

I'm a mild beach bum who seeks honest connections with honest people

I want you to have wedding photos that remind you of how things really felt, and that we all have a hell of a good time along the way.

You can say I’m fun loving and optimistic in that typical California girl way. I love rollerblading, snowboarding, live music and funky colorful home decor. I started carrying disposable cameras and polaroids around everywhere as a teen to freeze the good times. What started as spontaneous images of my friends and I at concerts or on a trip, turned into a passion for life’s best moments. It was also that real human connection that pulled me heart-first into weddings.

It made sense - you’ll catch me romanticizing life and love over a dirty chai latte most days anyway. That, or I’m thrifting vintage gems and day-tripping it up the California coast in search of sunshine and fresh seafood.

I have a “live slow and have fun” take on work, play and travel.

What do you say? Are you ready to do this thing the fun way?

Meet Matt assistant, backup videographer and my favorite person

He’s optimistic, he’s fun-loving, he’s Matt! This outgoing guy is someone that can talk to almost anyone, and he’s charmed his way across the world doing so.

He gets his creativity from his dad, who also had a rad eye behind the lens. His biggest passions are surfing, travel, and good food (both cooking and eating it) and that’s where he finds most of his creative inspiration.

Matt’s the super 8 video peanut butter to my film photo jam.

He’s also my better half (if you trust sandwich math), so if you think I’m pretty alright, you’ll love tossing him into this party mix!
