  • Our experience was effortless and fun and our photos turned out A-MAZING! We were extremely pleased with Matthew for our photo shoot. He was very friendly and professional and directed us very well in all the best poses and angles. It made it effortless for us. Our photographs couldn’t have turned out better! He went out of his way to meet us way outside the city where we wanted our shoot to be done. He has a great eye. I have recommended him to other friends already. The photos were presented to us on his site which was easy to navigate and had the photos in different formats including high-Res and social media sharing format.

  • We were very, very happy with Matthew and his photography. I booked him for a last minute photo shoot on a weekend. He responded right away, and he was very professional with a beautiful website. The day of the shoot, he met us at a location 2 hours away from the city, he even showed up early to scout out the location. He was very easy going with what we wanted, but also knew how to direct us to get the perfect shot. It didn’t take too long to receive the photographs. I really liked the way they were presented - through his website for easy access with the option to download any or all of them in a selection of high resolution for printing or regular format. I highly recommend him!! If I need any more photos in the future I plan to use him again.

  • Matthew was great to work with. Matthew did an amazing job of photographing our wedding. He took such beautiful pictures and captured the entire day for us! His work is beyond what we expected and are grateful for the lifetime memories we have now through his photography. We would recommend him to anyone who wants amazing pictures and someone who is very easy to work with and lets the work do the talking.

  • When planning our wedding we knew that finding an accomplished photographer was a priority for capturing our day of love, family, and friends. After countless weeks spent scrolling through portfolios we began to understand there were a lot of photographers to choose from. Once we found Legacy Union and Matthew’s talent for photography we found ourselves continually coming back to his photos. The consistent quality of his work and how he presented it instilled in us his ability to capture our wedding. From our first meeting we began to understand his experience, professionalism, and down-to-earth nature. Through our continued interactions we really felt that he got to know us as a couple and the style of pictures we were wanting. Matthew’s experience was essential in navigating the photography portion of our wedding day. Throughout the entire day, Matthew made us feel comfortable and relaxed. He was great at organizing our large group and keeping to our time sensitive ... Read more

  • Matthew was a really nice guy and VERY talented photographer. He is punctual, which is seriously a big deal because many photographers are not and this causes undue stress on your important day. Well-oiled system with photos delivered via a web folder promptly! Would recommend Matthew in a heartbeat for any type of photography. Food shots, business interiors, wedding, engagement, lifestyle- you name it. He is good at giving direction, too. He is level headed and easy to talk to (really humble). He's one of those "Not originally from California" nice people. (What does that even mean? LOL) He was great and will give you beautiful photos. If there's pictures you love from Pinterest, be sure to share them with him so he can try to capture similar because the time goes quickly and he'll be very busy trying to capture everything.

  • Matthew Smith captured our wedding beautifully. Not only did he travel half way across the country to document our day, but he worked tirelessly from the moment the day began to the end of the reception with patience and poise. I was honestly a little overwhelmed by the responsibilities of the day and worrying if people were having a good time, I'm glad that one thing I didn't have to worry about was the photography. From walking through the day in Skype calls and email correspondence, everything was thought out and well organized. Matt knew how to bring out our best and was efficient about directing us as a couple and with our wedding party! Getting the photos was super quick and seamless with the online gallery and flash drive in the mail. There are so many good moments from throughout the entire day! We're really happy with how our photos turned out and we're already a little sad that we'll probably never look as good as we do in those photos! We highly recommend Matthe... Read more

  • I can't say enough about Matthew Smith's photography skills. Matthew is a thoughtful observer of the events and culture unfolding before him. He flew out to our wedding in Vietnam, and the photos were stunning. Having been comfortably behind the lens myself, I wasn't looking forward to being the center of attention or posing for any super awkward or fake photos. But with Matthew Smith around, my husband and I fully enjoyed the whole day and can relive those precious moments thanks to Matt's talent. Matt was flexible, ready for everything that came our way (it's Asia, hardly anything goes as planned!), and incredibly professional and respectful. I, of course, felt nervous on my big day, but Matt's calming and gracious presence capturing each stage as the day unfolded was a gift that helped me fully relax on a day that gets many women stressed. The quality of his photos in the end was priceless, and I highly recommend this photographer who is committed to genuinely capturing your special... Read more

  • Matt is extremely talented and has a strong artistic sense. My bridal photos are of high quality, professional, and embarrassingly outshine all other photos I've gotten back from any other photographer. I'm really happy that I got to work with someone that is patient, kind and has the work ethic to match his talent. He does an excellent job of directing you during the photo session (especially if you are camera awkward like me) and knowing where to take the best photos. I've had the pleasure of working with him a few times and I was always relaxed because it's obvious he knows what he is doing. I would highly recommend him to do any of your photography needs. You may regret it if you don't get the best of the best for photos you'll have forever.

  • Recommended by a friend, Matt came to photograph our honeymoon in Ecuador. We spent two unforgettable weeks together and are able to relive many special moments thanks to Matt's photos. Having had photo sessions with other companies, Matt's great character, enthusiasm and determination clearly stands out from the rest. It was a joy to be with him, it made the whole experience much more special than just a 'job'. We shot in several locations and Matt was not afraid to get dirty or squeeze into those awkward holes to capture the perfect shot. His talent of using the environment and natural lighting gives every photo a story and completeness.

  • We absolutely loved using Legacy Union Photo Co for our wedding. Matthew was so great to work with and his photos truly captured the moments of the night through his candid photos of everything going, we love reliving the night through his photography. He is also very playful with lighting which makes for some amazing creative photographs as well. We cherish all of them!

  • My husband and I hired Matthew for our wedding photos. They were PHENOMENAL. We cannot recommend him enough. He went over and above our expectations in the types and number of images he captured. He met our vision and needs while also injecting his own experience and artistic eye. We did our engagement photos with him as well. Seven years later, those pictures are still up in our house as they captured the essence of my husband and I. (We would have him take new ones for us but we moved! sob.) Matthew is the real deal. I gave him our wants and he went with it. He was professional, flexible, and organized. HIGHLY recommend!!!

  • I cannot say enough good things about Legacy Union! This photographer arrived extra early on my wedding day and was already taking beautiful candid photos of everyone as they arrived, started mingling, and getting ready before I said anything to him at all. It was SO nice because your wedding day can feel kind of stressful and chaotic, but this photographer was there capturing every moment without me having to ask or direct him at all. After we received our pictures, It was like opening a whole new wedding gift to see all of the precious moments he had captured during the wedding that I didn't even know about!! - Like my little flower girl receiving a backstage "cheek kiss" from the ring bearer, and members of my family laughing and enjoying each other's company before the service started. There were several funny, memorable moments during both the service and the reception that he captured in detail and I will always treasure those amazing candid photographs! In fact, all of his p...
