Mercedes and Jesse covered our wedding in December 2022 and they really went above and beyond! The morning of our wedding, my fiancé (at the time) and I both didn't know how to pin the boutonniere AND the flowers for my hair were not placed in a crown as I thought they'd be so Mercedes pinned the bout AND arranged the flowers in my hair-- totally not part of the photography agreement but it looked great. The also two did a great job shooting amazing photos for us on the University of Texas campus before the ceremony. They had great instructions on how to pose both my husband and I. I also love how they're a Christian couple who loves God! They're both so wonderful to work with and the sweetest people-- don't hesitate to book them!

First of all, Mercedes Morgan Photography took this job on very short notice AND the day after Christmas when our first photographer dropped out for personal reasons that referred Mercedes. For that we were already grateful. Once she showed up with her warmth and professional gear it was tough for me not to feel like she was a guest we invited and had known for a long time. I am NOT usually patient for pictures, maybe from years of having to take 15 takes of the same pictures anytime family gets together and my mother has a camera (pre cell phone era especially). However, I thought Mercedes was fun to work with, her direction was more fun and easy and I wasn't annoyed at all. The quality of pics we got back along with her direction made for great captures of great memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks Mercedes!
Mercedes and Jesse did an AMAZING job with our wedding photos! They worked hard to get all of the shots that were important to us throughout our wedding. We have beautiful photographs to document all of details and moments throughout our wedding that we would never want to forget. All of the photos we asked for are perfect, and the candid photos are even better. They gave us both artsy and meaningful photos, and we love them all. They are also very sweet, responsive, and knowledgeable! A delight to work with! 10/10 would recommend!

Mercedes and Jesse were wonderful!! We had a small outdoor wedding at night and we’re scared the photos would come out dark. Not only were the photos light they had a warm and romantic glow to them. I never could of imagined photos like the ones they were able to capture. I cannot thank both of you for the beautiful pictures that will stay in the family for generations.

They did an amazing job at my wedding photos. They really captured the love in my relationship and some amazing raw moments ❤️ I'm normally not a big fan of photos but they made it so effortless, fun and stress free! I now have so many beautiful photos of that day and the moments this beautiful couple captured, words can't describe the joy they bring me. I know for future family photos I will go to them.

Mercedes and Jesse were AMAZING! We are so thankful to have them as our photographer. Our ceremony was a very special moment for our families and she captured every perfect moment. Not only are we in love with our ceremony photos, but our after bride and groom photographs were incredible! I had never met such beautiful souls like them. They made us feel very comfortable and happy! We can’t thank her enough for her flexibility and hard work! 100% recommend her for your special day!

Mercedes and Jesse are simply WONDERFUL human beings. They each are so sweet and want to make sure you are completely comfortable during your session/event. We used them for our engagement photos and wedding. They communicate EXTREMELY well ahead of your event to make sure all your questions are answered and even provide helpful tips before your event to make sure you have perfect photos. Mercedes is very quick to answer emails, calls, texts, etc. Also, they are completely open to your ideas and trying new things. Hello – I made poor Mercedes and Jesse freeze their butts off and brave ice in sneakers at an ice skating rink for our engagement shoot (we are hockey players). They were super excited and up for the challenge. Lots of smiles and great memories for everyone involved in that shoot! I also made Jesse brave smoke bombs during both shoots – there are flames involved with those things people! And Jesse was glad to run around us wafting colored smoke while Mercedes snapped photos – no complaining even when he almost caught fire! Their photography is stunning and unique – and like I said, they are just so wonderful to be around. So all in all, a wonderful experience and I would hire them again in a second. Their prices are very reasonable in a competitive market – so I thought it was a very good value and they were SO quick to deliver the albums after both shoots. So that should tell you about the level of their dedication/passion for what they do and professionalism as well. Maybe I got lucky with the quick turnaround times, but something tells me that they just love what they do so much and making sure their clients are happy that my experience is probably similar to others.

Working with Mercedes and Jesse was a wonderful experience from start to end. They truly care about making it a personal and special experience. They are easy to work with and very talented! I would recommend them to anyone for engagement photos.

Every soon-to-be bride I speak with, I tell them that finding a photographer for your wedding is THE hardest thing. There are SO many photographers to choose from so I had tasked my mom with helping me find one… she picked Mercedes Morgan Photography and we couldn’t be more happy with her selection. They photographed our engagement shoot and our wedding day. They were AMAZING at suggesting locations for our engagement session that matched the style I was looking for. We loved our engagement photos and am still in awe over our wedding photos. They sure know what they’re doing. Not only were the photos stunning, Mercedes and Jesse are fun to be around and easily share in the joy that is happening during your wedding day (which makes posing for pictures all day MUCH easier). We’ve already told Mercedes and Jesse that we want them to capture every next step in our lives… these photos are going to be cherished for our lifetime, our children’s and many more.

Mercedes and Jesse are incredible people and fantastic at what they do. We got married at Chapel Dulcinea in Austin and had no idea what to expect. They showed up while we were getting ready and automatically I felt at ease. I didn’t worry about whether or not they were getting the kind of photos I liked or enough shots. They were so thorough leading up to the ceremony finding out what we were looking for, getting a list of “must-haves”, and writing down everyone’s names so the process would go quickly and smoothly (which was much needed since we got married outside in June). Quick to respond, listens to you, and gives you any advice you ask for! I am SO thrilled with the photos!!! 110% recommend.

We absolutely loved working with Mercedes Morgan Photography!! They took our engagement photos and did all the photography at our wedding. They captured everything my husband and I wanted in both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. They are so talented, and was absolutely amazing to work with! We loved their creative eye when capturing special moments. Whenever we need pictures in the future, they will be the one we go back too!

I’m convinced to this day there is no better photographer out there than @mercedesmorganphoto (And I feel like I’ve stalked a lot of wedding pics!!!!)

Mercedes Morgan Photography’s talent is beyond words and hiring them was the best decision my husband and I made towards our wedding. Brides, please do yourself a favor and just stop looking at the hundreds of photographers, this is the one you want. They made my wedding so special and so memorable. Mercedes and Jesse started out with our engagements photos and both times reviewing the photos for the first time made me cry. They were stunning and I had never felt so beautiful! They are so easy to work with and always responsive with my 1,000 pre-wedding questions! Honestly, I can’t wait until we start having kids so that we can hire them again to possibly do family portraits, etc. They captured all of the love I felt on my wedding day. They made us feel comfortable the entire time, and it was so much fun! They got my pictures to me very quickly as well. Mercedes and Jesse shot with numerous different backgrounds, lenses and captured the light and the moment perfectly. We never felt rushed and it’s easy to tell that they truly LOVE what they do. Hiring Mercedes and Jesse was the best choice we could have ever made for my wedding. Highly recommended!
Mercedes and Jesse were the absolute best!! I was stressed beyond belief to find the perfect photographer and as soon as I saw their portfolio I knew I was making the right decision! I just got my pictures back and they are breathtaking!! Thank you for helping capture my special day and for helping me tote around my train!!

Mercedes and Jesse were wonderful to work with and I’m so glad we chose them for our wedding. They really took the time to get to know us and was so sweet and responsive during the process. I didn’t know what to expect but I let them know what I was looking for and they delivered above and beyond. They are extremely talented and have an eye for light. I was absolutely blown away by the pictures and have received so many compliments from our family and friends. They took our engagements photos as well and made us feel so relaxed and comfortable throughout the shoot. You won’t regret choosing Mercedes Morgan Photography for your big day, she is amazing!!

Wonderful people, wonderful photographs!!!
We absolutely loved working with Mercedes and Jesse! They were extremely organized, and they are very easy to communicate with. They were genuinely excited to be part of our big day. Mercedes and Jesse photographed our engagement photos and our wedding. They really captured our personalities through both occasions, and they captured many incredibly special moments at the wedding, both silly and sweet. My family and friends cannot stop talking about how much they love the photos! I’m extremely satisfied with their work, and I really enjoyed working with them. They are fun, and the photographs are absolutely stunning! I highly, highly recommend!!!
– Taylor and Warren’s Austin Fall Engagement Session
Mercedes Morgan Photography is one of those photographers with true natural talent. Not to mention, they have wonderful personalities, they are incredibly easy to work with and very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. They were able to provide us with beautifully composed photos, while also capturing the important moments that only happen for an instant. The amazing thing was that even though they were there for all the “moments,” I hardly noticed them during the wedding and reception. We were able to completely enjoy our day without cameras flashing in our faces the entire time. Mercedes and Jesse took the time to get to know us and really understand our personalities, and, as a result, the photos really reflect us. Their pictures clearly show the love between my husband, me and our families. They also show the fun atmosphere of the entire evening, and I am able to relive our wedding day through the photos.

Thank you for agreeing to be a part of our wedding. Your passion, talent, and excitement for photography have shown with every communication we have had. That excitement is contagious! Looking through the photos after we first talked even furthered that excitement!

Thank you so much for your photography skills and time at the 2019 Night to Shine. Your beautiful and perfectly timed photos highlighted the event so well. Thank you again for helping to make 2019 Night to Shine at Eikon Church an unforgettable evening for the Hays County Special Needs Community.

Choosing a photographer is probably the #1 important aspect of a wedding. You only have one chance to capture it, one chance only! After texting several photographers, it seemed Mercedes Morgan Photography was #1 in customer service and very prompt & courteous! I enjoyed our small talk and humorous conversation in less than 30 minutes. I believe having a smooth conversation was one good part of choosing them, but also their images speak for themselves. Some of our images were candid shots and they captured them amazingly! You can catch the feelings through those shots and I love that! She and Jesse did amazing! Thank you guys!

Mercedes and Jesse made our special day flow so smoothly and captured the most amazing moments for us!!! We love all the candid shots of our children and family/friends. They also made us feel so comfortable throughout it all. We will be scheduling them for future events :)) Highly recommend!
