Photographer Recreates Most Beloved Fairytales

May 27, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

"All our dreams can come true if we only have the courage to pursue them."- Walt Disney

     My name is Savannah Kate Morgan and I am a fairytale photographer from North Louisiana. Since I was a little girl, I have been obsessed with fairytales and all things whimsical and magical. I have always used photography as a way to document how I see the world. I have used it as an escape sometimes, from reality. I believe that in going through the process of imagining a concept and bringing it to life, I collect pieces of myself, and awaken aspects that are buried deep down inside of me. I am highly influenced by stories such as Alice in Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, and The Neverending Story- anything that is ethereal, whimsical, and promotes dreaming as a form of distorted reality. I use photography as a door, or a Rabbit Hole, to allow me passageway to a completely unmapped world and to design my dreams and my future. Though I photograph pretty much all things, such as weddings, children, high school seniors, etc., my passion has and always will be fairytale sessions. I have compiled a collection of images that I have created over the years, side-by-side with their original fairytales. 

 

"Savannah Kate Photography re-imagines classic fairytales and refreshes them for a contemporary audience. Using children’s books and films as the inspiration for her work, SKP transforms fantasy into a fantastical reality. If only for a moment, her subjects are able to live in a dream world; Yet, this moment is captured in print for years to come. Savannah Kate Photography’s art provides a memorable experience that indulges one’s imagination and love for all things magical. Whether it be a bright-eyed and innocent child, an adventurous old soul, or an average person living in our contemporary world, Savannah Kate Photography inserts individuals into a familiar fairytale while also adding her own artistic knowledge and skill to re-create images that are uniquely hers." -Alexandria Salmieri

 


Aislinn Joy Tucker | Senior 2015

May 06, 2015  •  3 Comments

     Where do I even begin with this session?! It's everything a vintage-loving photographer could ask for! Aislinn Joy Tucker is the kind of girl who walks to the beat of her own drum and is not afraid to have her own individual style...and I LOVE that! When she told me that she wanted a vintage styled senior session, my heart skipped a beat. Although, I can't take much credit- she found the location and the car. Ohhhh, that car! I pulled up and saw before me the most beautiful 1956 (I believe) red Bel Air I had ever seen. Everything fell into place and I knew it was going to be one of my favorite sessions! I wish this gorgeous gal the best of luck on all of her life adventures, I know there will be many! I hope everyone enjoys this session, feel free to leave thoughts and opinions in the comments! 

 

 


 


Kemper {Bridals}

October 27, 2014  •  4 Comments

A while back I had the honor of photographing Mrs. Kemper's engagements, bridals and wedding. As you can see, I pretty much hit the photographer jackpot. I think the above picture describes Kemper in so many ways. She is gorgeous (obviously), but is equally as radiant on the inside. She is the embodiment of grace. Although this picture does not show her infectious smile, I feel like you can just see God's love shining through her. 

These have to be some of my all-time favorite bridals! Feel free to scroll through them and let me know what you think in the comments! 

 


Marie Antoinette {Fairytale Session}

June 12, 2014  •  9 Comments

I was very excited when Ashley Concillio called me about doing a fairytale session for her little girl. I believe she said "I want something completely over the top!" I immediately thought... MARIE ANTOINETTE! I had this theme in mind for a while prior to her call so I was beyond excited to finally get to make it a reality! Once she sent me pictures of little Milleigh, I knew this was the perfect theme. She was such a little model! This shoot took a couple of months to plan, prepare, and create (not to mention I was in school at the time- so that slowed things down quite a bit). I looked all over for a place that had a "Versailles" feel to match my vision (crazy dream right?!). However, I could find nothing that was just quite right, so I thought...why can't I just MAKE something like this? Needless to say...my boyfriend and grandmother were not too thrilled when I told them my idea. (They help me on nearly every large shoot like this!) But, with some persuasive asking (*cough* begging *cough*), they finally agreed! So here is the final result! I will post some behind the scenes pictures at the end to show you the creation of the set! Please let me know what you think in the comments, and feel free to share on Facebook! 

 

 

So there you have it! Definitely one of my favorite photoshoots thus far. There are SO many people to thank for making this shoot possible! 

Nana (a.k.a Darla Thames, coolest grandmother of all time), thank you SO much for your help with this shoot! You spent so many hours making each and every piece for the background and helping me put it all together! I'm so lucky to have someone as energetic, creative and selfless as you for a grandmother!  

Nana working on the set! (Please excuse the cell phone quality!)

Next, I would like to thank Stella Sorey for bringing out her Leroy (the adorable miniature horse). I know it was a LOT of trouble, but it truly MADE the photoshoot. Plus, I think Milleigh really liked him ;) I can't thank you enough! 

I would also like to thank Social Bites of Ruston for the cake and cake stand! The cake was a dummy cake for ease of transport but seriously guys... go by and try their cupcakes (actually anything they make)...they are TO DIE FOR! Click here to go to their Facebook page and see all of their mouth-watering-delicious goodies! 

As always I must thank my sweet boyfriend Wayland Morgan for all of the help on this shoot as well as all other shoots! He picks up couches by himself when I am too much of a wimp to even pick up half! (true story) He takes down/puts up the sets that I am finished with before I even finish the full shoot so I don't have to worry about it afterwards. But most importantly, he puts up with my crazy, controlling, stressed out, overly-dramatic, pre-fairytale shoot self with reassurance and patience! I can't thank you enough!

Last, but certainly not least I would like to thank Ashley Concillio, Donna Spiegel (her mom), and little Milleigh for giving me the opportunity to make this shoot happen! Mrs. Donna MADE the gorgeous gown featured in the shoot. 

Isn't she insanely talented?! Milleigh, thank you for being the best little model ever! I truly hope you all treasure the experience and photographs- I know I did!

 

With Love, 

Savannah Kate Photography

Pretty Things | Style Blog {Back to Black}

March 27, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

For this outfit I chose "Back to Black" By: Amy Winehouse {should be playing...and also censored} :)

It might be cliche but I often times find myself going "back to black", as in always purchasing/wearing black. I'm not saying this is a bad thing though. Black is always in style, always appropriate, and goes with almost anything. 

Today was just one of those rushed days. This outfit was so easy to throw together. That is one great thing about black colored pieces, they normally make you look more "put together" than you may feel yourself. 

This was a very thin black cotton dress, so it was EXTREMELY comfortable. It wasn't cold today, but had a slight breeze so it worked well with the weather. I threw on some simple black leggings and this outfit was a go! 

Because this dress was so simple, I just felt like adding some "pop". I added multiple gold accents- including this gold and black statement necklace from Altar'd State. 

One of my favorite (and most controversial) accessories is my Ray-Ban Clubmasters. I thought they just topped off this outfit and gave that "classic" edge I was going for! 

To continue the gold/black theme I had going on throughout the outfit, I decided to wear these AMAZING Steve Madden boots. They feature black leather with a gold plated heel. Whenever I wear an outfit I always like to "throw a curve-ball", or, wear something unique and different to a classic outfit. I love making people go "Wait...what?" :) I got these at Dillard's back when they were having their Labor Day sale- I just couldn't resist-they were too fabulous! 

That pretty much does it for this outfit! I got a great response on the last post so I really hope to be doing more of these in the future! Please let me know what you think in the comments section or on Facebook!
