Meredith + Lauren’s Fort Zachary Taylor Wedding


This wedding you guys…so many amazing emotions. Not only are Meredith and Lauren some of the kindest, easiest to get along with people I’ve ever met, but they have the sweetest relationship. It’s easy to tell how much they care for one another and how easily they have fit into one another’s lives. Coming from the cold northeast, they decided to have a Fort Zachary Taylor wedding in sunny Key West. I’m so thrilled they asked me to be their photographer, and that I was able to capture these moments for them.

Getting Ready at the Kimpton Lighthouse Hotel

The Lighthouse Hotel is one of my favorite places to have couples get ready. Not only are the grounds perfect, but the room where they typically book engaged couples is MASSIVE and has the best natural light pouring into the windows. Plus, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to meet one of the neighborhood cats. The property sits right across the street from the Hemingway House, known for its six-toed residents.

Ceremony on the Beach at Fort Zachary Taylor

Fort Zachary always holds a special place in my heart, because it’s where my husband and I were married. We were on the opposite side of the beach, but every time I photograph a ceremony here I’m a little nostalgic. It’s so pretty!

Reception Inside Historic Fort Zachary Taylor

Ok, I had no idea you could actually have a reception INSIDE the fort! How cool is that?? The tables were set up inside the fort walls, and the dance floor was just outside. For the cocktail hour, they were able to be on TOP of the fort, overlooking the sunset. I’m even more in love with this venue now.

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.
