American Photo Top Ten

I can’t believe I’m actually writing this post. That this REALLY happened!!! American Photo Magazine just announced their list of the world’s Top 10 Wedding Photographers and they have chosen me to be on it. To be nominated alone is an incredible honor. To be selected is mind-blowing!! It’s ridiculously exciting to finally be able to share this with everyone! Amir and I were sitting on the plane when I first got the email. I’m pretty sure we freaked out the guy sitting next to us as we read and reread the email out loud twenty times to make sure it was real.

As I try to soak in what a huge milestone this is, I can’t help but feel reflective. It takes me back to my high school darkroom where I used to spend hours developing film and making prints. I remember convincing my friends and very cute boyfriend at the time (now husband almost 17 years later) to sit in front of my camera while I learned, made mistakes, and learned some more. In college, I remember my fine art professor being less than impressed that I had been shooting weddings on the side. No matter what I created in school, my pictures were always “too pretty” for him. Today, I hope “too pretty” is a good thing!

Being a photographer is a part of everything I do. And today, to get to share that with Amir, working side by side and documenting once-in-a-lifetime moments around the world, is the ultimate prize. We’re so blessed. And SO thankful to our clients who have done nothing but trust us and put one of the most important days of their lives in our hands.

Thank you so much to the photographers that nominated me and to American Photo for this incredible recognition. Huge congratulations to the other photographers that were named Top 10!! It’s so humbling to be listed among such talent!

Congratulations Morgan!! You truly deserved this honor. When David and I chose you as our wedding photographer, we knew you were THE BEST but now everyone else knows it as well. The saying “Do what you love (and believe in) and it will come naturally” is so evident in your work. And beyond the amazing photography, you are just the sweetest and most humble person. We wish you continued success, doing what you love.
