Hey, thanks for stopping by! I'm Megan, a San Diego-based food photographer. Documenting any step of the food journey from plant to plate is my jam. I specialize in crafting minimal yet polished imagery that highlights the natural beauty of food.

 

My love affair with photography began in earnest while living in Chile and traveling throughout South America during the late aughts. Everything I experienced was just different enough to be completely fascinating. The garbage collectors musically announced their arrival by striking a metal triangle. I frequently woke to both earthquakes and the megaphone chant of, "Naranja, NaranjAA, NARANJAAA," coming from the neighborhood fruit vendor. Empanada stands and fish markets provided some of my favorite meals to date. Observing and capturing the nuances of day-to-day life in an alternate hemisphere quickly became an obsession. Years later, while working as a nutritionist, the pivot to focus on food photography felt like a natural progression.

 

Enough about me! How can I help? I’d love the opportunity to get to know you better. Email me at hello@meganmorello.com or schedule a discovery call with me HERE .

"Megan did an amazing job of translating my businesess's value into compelling and beautiful visuals. Her ability to ask the right questions and listen, to capture the best moments and angles with her camera, and to thread it all together to create meaningful forms of communication is highly effective."

"Megan was just the amazing food and drink photographer we were looking for! She's a meticulous food stylist & photographer and was able to execute our vision to perfection. We were so happy with her food images and social media animations. We highly recommend you seek out her services to provide your product or

restaurant with incredible appeal."

"Megan is an absolute pleasure to work with.

I recently hosted a farm-to-table dinner at Sand N' Straw Community Farm. She worked instinctually to capture not only the essence of the evening with photos of the guests and atmosphere, but also beautifully composed images of each course. I look forward to working with her again!"
