UNDENIABLY OBSESSED WITH YOU
My name is Morgan Herger, formerly known as Morgan Freeman, but my friends call me Morg. It's with love, compassion and whole lotta coffee that I run Matchalorene Photography.
I am a luxury lifestyle & wedding photographer located in the Tri-Valley & Bay Area up in sunny Northern California. While I may be based in Northern CA, I am 100% open to traveling because who doesn't love a long car ride podcast.
SO WHAT AM I DOING HERE?
Let me break it down for you. I don't believe in a one-size fits all type of wedding or elopement. Whether it be traditional or completely off the grid, your love story should be yours and yours alone. My goal is to personalize that for you. We create a unique partnership from the day you inquire to the moment you receive your gallery.
My shooting and editing style is consistent with being warmer toned emotion driven and cinematic. I put the focus back on YOU and I want you to be able to look back at your gallery with the feelings of that day. It should tell a story. I am the writer and you are story. In order to get those shots, I put a majority of my focus on getting to know you both as a couple. It is incredibly important that we build a foundation of trust in order to get the gallery of your dreams. I promise to capture the love that I know you hare with your partner.

WHAT TO EXPECT
1 / Coffee Chat
After inquiring with me, the next step is to book a consultation with me (over the phone or in person) to discuss your needs, get to know each other, and chat about which collection is right for you.
2 / Make Things Official!
If we’re a good fit and you’d like to move forward, I’ll send you a proposal with a contract and invoice to make our partnership official. Once you submit it, your date is secured on my calendar and you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing you just found your dream wedding photographer!
3 / Get Prepped
During the weeks and months leading up to your weddings, I’ll act as a personal guide, offering vendor recommendations, tips and tricks, and more. If you choose a collection with an engagement session, we’ll schedule it for a few months before your wedding, and create a detailed shot list for the day of.
4 / Engagement Session
It’s time to capture this special, fleeting season with beautiful photos! Your engagement session is a great opportunity to get comfortable with me and my camera and practice taking pictures together. Plus, you can use the photos for Save the Dates, wedding websites, and more!
5 / Cue The Wedding Bells
The big day has finally arrived. It’s going to be great! I’ll get to your venue early to scout out the layout and lighting. Thanks to all the planning and prep we’ve done, you can simply relax and enjoy the moment while I do my thing!
6 / Gallery Delivery
I’ll send you a a preview within 48 hours of your wedding to get you excited, then your full gallery will be delivered 6-8 weeks later. You can download and print them yourself, or I can create an heirloom-quality photo album for you. Pro tip: Plan a date night with your new spouse to look through the photos together and relive the joy of that day all over again!
Erika Cowan (2023 Wedding)
"Where do I start? Morgan is one of those kind hearted, fun-loving people that you hit it off with instantly. My husband and I have worked with Morgan before for other sessions, and she created absolute art while capturing our sweet little family's true personalities and loving nature. We knew once we were planning our wedding that she had to be our photographer! She stayed in regular communication with us throughout the planning process, sent sweet gifts to keep us motivated and excited through the stress, she went above and beyond to adjust with us on the fly and never even broke a sweat! Our families loved her, we love her, and we can't wait for the next memories that we can to make with her. Morgan's talent is exceptional, her personality is easy to get along with, her integrity is unmatched and her genuine investment in some of the most important moments of our lives has made her a lifelong friend. Run, don't walk to lock her down for your wedding!"

WHAT I DO FOR YOU
I go above and beyond for my couples & there isn't much I won't do for YOU. I know first hand just how overwhelming wedding planning can be. It's with this, I have created thoughtful workflows for all of my sessions that at allow us to get comfortable working with each other on such an intimate level while providing organization to your life in most aspects that I can control. I enjoy holding your hand through this process and there truly isn't anything I wouldn't do to make your day memorable.
DO YOU FEEL UNPHOTOGENIC?
I will guide you effortlessly through each pose to capture a moment. You will have several prompts to elicit movement or emotion. All you need to do is come prepared to laugh because it is so much fun!
I AM NOT JUST ANOTHER "VENDOR"
For me, this is not just a business deal. I am in the business of maintaining relationships and I maintain those relationships by listening to my clients needs and wants. I scout locations that match your vision, I provide wardrobe options, and I have several props to throw in your photos if we should need them. One important item that I do not want to skip over, I want to elicit emotion. I care about emotion as much as I care about my edits.
I want all of it.
