Client Reviews


I know getting your photo taken can be scary #ihateittoo... so it's just as important that you leave our sessions feeling great as it is that you love your photos.  I'm SO honored to work with each and every person who comes my way.  Hover over the images to hear what clients say....

Lyzz of Sister DistrictMorgan, these are AMAZING!!!! I am in LOVE!!!! Seriously. Thank you so much. Both backgrounds turned out so well!! You are a goddess. I’m sending them to the team right now; if anyone wants too see other options I’ll let you know, though I can’t imagine they will. Thank you again!! DaynaThank you so much, Morgan! I felt so confident and at ease with you and the pictures make me so happy! Looking forward to seeing you again soon! You are awesome! Oakland Museum of CaliforniaMorgan did an amazing job shooting images of our press event for the Oakland Museum of California. She captured great photos of the artwork as well as important moments from our event. I would definitely recommend her work!

JoannaMorgan took some absolutely amazing family photos and a headshot for me recently. The photos captured the personalities of everyone perfectly, especially the ones of my daughter. She was so much fun to work with and very patient (which is great when you have a 6 month old that needs to take a couple breaks for feeding and diaper changes). I didn't exactly know what types of poses we wanted, but Morgan made a bunch of suggestions and I couldn't be happier with the photos. I will definitely be working with Morgan again in the future! Julie Z.Ooohhh! Want to know one of the best kept secrets in the Bay? Morgan Shidler photography. Morgan really has a gift for this work. I've gotten head shots and family photos from her. I'm maybe the most awkward person on the planet, but Morgan has a way of making you feel natural like there isn't even a person with a camera following you around. Morgan is professional and got our photos back to us in a timely manner. I love both sets of photos and have used them a ton for work events and as family gifts. Our family is growing by 1 and we'll definitely be going back to Morgan to update our photos in a few months. I can't recommend Morgan Shidler Photography highly enough.

TimurWow! I'm so happy I met Morgan and got to have her do my headshots! It feels so good as a professional and soloprenuer to have a stock of high quality headshots and action shots for use on my websites and other places. It's almost embarrassing to think of what I had before, but that just reminds me to be grateful for Morgan's excellent photos. Just today I was able to use an action shot as a background to some promotional items, and that picture was crucial to my ability to look proudly at my marketing stuff. ElidaMorgan was very encouraging, put me at ease, was creative in using the setting in a spur-of-the-moment opportunity, and created beautiful, colorful shots in the Fillmore. EsteeMorgan's artful eye and passion for her work are just two of the many reasons I continue to hire her for photography for my yoga business. She effortlessly captures the energy and beauty of our retreats without disrupting the flow and is truly delightful to work with. Morgan is an amazing photographer and all around wonderful human being. Highly recommended!

DaraI love the photos Morgan took! She put me at ease and we had fun during the shoot. My stepmom now wants to hire her! RavenMorgan brought out each of our family members personalities out in our photos. Everyone harmonized beautifully and had such a fun family day! I just can't say enough.... when she sent us the gallery the other night, I literally couldn't go to sleep because I was so excited!!!!! Morgan you are a true artist and will be our photographer always and forever!!!!

LaraI recently attended one of Morgan's Ladies Headshot Happy Hour events. Wow! Morgan immediately put me at ease, curing my "stage fright" with good company and a splash of champagne. The whole event was fun, engaging and I came away just glowing with good will. All that and I haven't even gotten to the pictures! Double wow. I'd originally only paid for two images but when Morgan sent me the whole gallery, I needed every last photo. The images are so alive, authentic and beautiful I could not be happier. Thank you, Morgan, for transforming a stressful situation in to one filled with joy and beauty. I'll definitely be coming back for more! RandyI needed new photos for my website but feel like I got a lot more than that. Morgan's photos captured me in ways that show the real me to my site visitors and prospects. It's like she's able to capture the inner picture, whether it's a person or a landscape or a march and rally. She was also fun to work with and it's always clear she's really committed to what she's doing. Julie S.I highly recommend Morgan for your family photos! I LOVE all of our pictures from our family photo shoot at Redwood Regional Park in Oakland. She is great with the kiddos, easy to work with and provided us with beautiful photos. Can’t wait to send our annual Christmas cards out.

  TanyaMorgan is amazingly talented and we have used her multiple times for family photos. She has a wonderful eye and an ability to get our kids looking at the camera at the same time--magical powers!!! Her photos have become the artwork in our house. I highly recommend her. JonnieI have hired Morgan for my wedding, pregnancy photos and most recently a family mini session. Each experience has exceeded my expectations. For our wedding we had an unconventional ceremony and reception. We didn't give her much direction because we didn't really know how, but she got it all! The family shots, the classic romantic, the candid shots that captured the day and most importantly our personalities. We just got our album from our family mini session and I couldn't be happier. The photos are BEAUTIFUL (and that's not just because they're of my kids lol). This was such a no fuss experience too. I had been thinking of doing a shoot for family pictures, but I was dreading booking, finding time, going through a million redundant images, choosing, uhhg. No, there was none of that. This was a like a photography quicky. The email came that the photos were ready it was like opening a finished gift. Only the best of the best already perfectly polished up. I would recommend this to anyone who wants professional photos by an artist and/or doesn't have time to make a personal hobby out of selecting photos for edits. This is going to make a lovely gift for my husbands parents. I will certainly be working with Morgan again. Justine + TJMorgan! The photos are incredible. I cannot thank you enough! I wanted to share what my mom emailed me about them... She is tough to please about stuff like this so nice words from her are a SERIOUS compliment!: "I FINALLY got a chance to have a good look at your wedding photos. Wow! I think she did an amazing job of catching the event and the people. She can obviously make anyone look fabulous and happy. And she was so inclusive of everyone it seems. I would need another room in the house to hang all the shots I want to frame." ... we are just so thrilled with your photos. Please let me know what I can do to help spread the word about your wonders!

NaimaI did a private session with Morgan for headshots and I LOVED my experience. It was a lot of fun, Morgan was incredibly warm and ensured I was comfortable, asked what I needed and what I was looking for from the experience and gave me exactly that. I have also used Morgan for event photos which came out wonderfully! She will continue to be my go-to for all the photography things. AlexisI'm so pleased with the results from one of Morgan's super fun Headshot Happy Hour events that I'm going for round two! I needed headshots for my online booking site (I'm a massage therapist) and they were a big hit! I posted my booking link with my headshot and got over 50 likes and 3 shares...several commented on the photo....They matter! Stephanie did hair and makeup and Morgan made me feel super comfortable in front of the camera, not an easy feat. Thanks you for making photos so painless. I had so much fun with the other women in the group as well. The little bites, wine, and great company made it a relaxed social environment. Looking forward to my next shoot!
