This #ThankfulThursday, we extend our sincere gratitude and joy to Matt Morgan of Matthew Morgan Photography. Matt specializes in natural light portraiture and event photography, specifically weddings. As a volunteer, he photographed our CCA Friday Family Breakfast and Peach Party at the #CCARetreat2015 this year.
About Matthew Morgan:
After earning a Business Management degree from a Pepperdine University and then trying out the corporate world, I switched gears to launch a now successful portrait and commercial photography company.I have flown across the country for commercial work, capturing high-end professional athletes such as Shaq and have also made my mark in the highly competitive California wedding photography industry.
Here's what Matt had to say about his experience photographing Retreat:
Concerning my experience, I was sort of nervous and excited to take part in the event: Nervous, feeling like an outsider to the craniofacial community, but excited because Erica described that their mission was to bring dignity to children with facial differences. This mission was a great fit for me and my Christian faith, which teaches about the image of God being placed on every individual person. In a society where physical looks are often overvalued, I felt compelled to understand and share the stories of the CCA community through my photographic medium, hoping that beauty and dignity would be assigned to each child.
You'll be seeing the photos he took in many of our social media and blog posts and
here are a few to enjoy today, as well.
Thank you, Matt, for your kindness, generosity, and artistic vision.
The photos you took are truly evidence of your gift.
You captured some very special and beautiful memories for CCA and our families.
