Engagement Session at The Moorings | Erin + Nick


Ok I hate to start a post like this, but you guys have seen Bloodline, right? If not, stop reading this and go watch season 1 (it’s the best one, in my opinion). Done? Ok. I shot an engagement session at The Moorings AKA THE RAYBURN HOUSE!

It was everything I hoped for and more.  Totally fell in love with the property, as did Erin and Nick. Seriously, it’s like being on your own private island. It’s lush, quiet, and totally secluded. Perfect for engagement photos.

I met Erin a few months ago when she was in town with her mom and aunt scouting some locations for her and Nick’s wedding. They live in New York, so trying to plan a wedding from thousands of miles away is difficult. Erin packed as much as she could into that trip, and I’m thrilled that we were able to meet! We clicked right away and her family is just the sweetest. Erin left feeling confident in her choices, and a few weeks later she brought Nick down to make it all official….and shoot some super steamy photos at their engagement session at The Moorings, of course 😉

I probably could have photographed them in this cabana ALL. DAMN. DAY, but we had plans to go for a swim. The people that run The Moorings were so great; they raked out the beach for us so we didn’t have to endure the crazy amount of seaweed that had been hanging around the beaches all day. We really could not have asked for a better location for this session. If you are looking for a place to host a small wedding, or even to have your engagement photos taken, I highly recommend reaching out to them.

So in conclusion, I’m moving to The Moorings.

ABOUT Alyssa

At home near the sea. Ever-focused on beauty and the thrilling art of creation; found in the moments that leave me breathless and in awe. 

Growing up, photos always fascinated me.  I was raised to be inquisitive, ask questions, and appreciate history.  What better way to peak someone's interest than with a photograph?  

I always thought I would end up in the pages of Vogue (though I still hope!), but after the tragic loss of my mother, I turned to wedding photography on a whim and fell in love with the energy that can only be found when two people decide on forever.  The overwhelming joy, nostalgia, and attention to detail captured my heart in 2012, and I never looked back.

I squeeze clients meetings in between nap times, and I drive my kids to school and daycare only to run into meetings with designers, florists, and beautiful clients before racing back to gather them back up again. The most amazing part, is that I feel most alive in this environment. Wedding days are chaotic, just like parenting.  Couples and families require empathy and genuine care, just like my children.  

I expertly navigate your wedding from my extensive experience in this industry, and what this offers you is the peace of mind on your wedding day to relax and enjoy what you have created. Booking with Alyssa Morgan Photography allows you to sit back, enjoy your party, and trust that every part of the day is going to be handled with ease, grace, and a whole lot of laughter along the way.

Adventurer.  Traveler.  Mother.
