Morgen did a beautiful “Up” themed photo shoot for my little toddler girl. She is SO especially good with small children, as she is patient, and loving and the little ones love her! The images were beautiful, and I am so happy that we chose Designed in Love. —

1st off I would like to say how much I loved working with Morgen! She is such a professional and I love her fun, bubbly personality! We did a photoshoot back in December and the turn around time was quicker than I thought to receive our photos. My fiance and I absolutely loved every photo we received back! I honestly will recommend Morgen to my friends and family! —

We absolutely LOVE Morgen and Designed in Love photography. She provides great quality material without needing to break the bank all the while making us feel comfortable to be ourselves and capture our personalities in beautiful and creative ways. Will definitely be booking her again for future events! Couldn’t recommend her enough to any and all people looking for a photographer within the Los Angeles area !!! —

We had a great experience working with Morgen for our large family photo shoot. We had about 11 people young and old and she was so patient with everyone. The photos came out great. I would definitely recommend her for family photo shoots! —

Morgen is very talented and has definitely found her calling! She was so easy going and put us all at ease! She thought of everything and even had little props/distractions for the kiddos! She was so patient when my daughters shoes were not working out and she was upset! Can’t wait to do another shoot with her in the future! —

Arlena Gray

Seriously my favorite family photos ever taken. Can’t wait to hire her again!! —
