Hawk’s Cay Wedding | Katherine + Robert


This Hawk’s Cay wedding must have come straight out of my dreams. Honestly the details and decor were gorgeous, but that isn’t what made this wedding so special. I really feel like Katherine and Robert were absolutely made for each other. They compliment one another so well, and I am so honored to have been chosen as their photographer.

This Hayley Paige gown you guys….STUNNING. Just wait until you see it on Katherine. Serious mermaid vibes.

The ladies at Ciao Bella Salon in Islamorada killed it, as always. They are so professional and do an amazing job, not only for the bride, but the bridal party and family as well. I highly recommend them!

First Look

Aaaah the first look!! My favorite. If these photos aren’t enough to prove to you why they are so special, you can read more about them in this blog I wrote a while back.

One thing I really liked about this Hawk’s Cay wedding, was that Katherine wasn’t afraid to ask for exactly what she wanted. She had a vision and executed it so well. This banyan tree is pretty hidden, so we asked permission to get back there, and it was SO WORTH IT!!!

Bridal Party

These bridesmaids dresses are everything. Super flattering on everyone and this is one of those rare bridesmaid dresses you can totally wear again and again. Not surprisingly, Show Me Your Mumu made them!

Marathon Florist knocked this bridal bouquet (and all of the other florals) out of the park! I love Dori because there is nothing she can’t do, I swear.

Reception Details

One of the first questions I ask my couples is, “Are you working with a wedding planner?” and I was THRILLED when Katherine said her and Robert were working with Peggy from Destination Wedding Studio. Peggy and I work together a lot and she just has such a way with her couples and with weddings. Because of this, she has become one of my favorite coordinators.

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.
