  • Matt was amazing start to finish. I could not be happier with how our wedding pictures and video turned out. They are gorgeous and the video is something I’m always going to cherish. Matt is one of the best decisions we made for our wedding hands down. He was a blast to work with and it was awesome to see how passionate he is about his work. We are so thankful!

  • Matt and his team were FANTASTIC! He has a very creative eye and made us feel so comfortable. We knew we wanted someone who captured natural beauty and Matt is the guy! He was well organized, sent us an itinerary, and even meet us for Brunch to go over any other details we may want. He even asked us to send over photos that we like and would want to recreate. He was early to our wedding and was able to scope out the area to find amazing places to take photos. He and his team were always there capturing special moments that we didn't expect! He captured the pure happiness and joy or our day! The video he did was out of this world. We cannot stop watching in and every time we catch something new that he had a creative eye for. I would recommend Matt and his team to anyone for their big day because he made ours so special!

  • I cannot tell you how amazing Matt's photos are. He is so creative and artistic! So many people have commented on how incredibly stunning our photos are. Matt is more than just a 'wedding photographer' he is an artist. Not only are his pix amazing but working with Matt was so much fun. We tried to get him to stay at the end of the night just to hang out. Great photos, great guy. Highly recommend him!

  • Matt was a great photographer for our wedding! He really works hard and loves what he’s doing. I believe the key to a great photographer is the love that the person has for what he or she is doing. Matt has that love, ambition, and creativity that makes him the great photographer for whatever needs you are looking for. I would recommend his services in a heartbeat!

  • My husband and I are so thankful that we hired Matt to create a wedding video for us. The video captured a lot of the special moments throughout the day that pictures would not do justice! Matt was pleasant to work with and comfortable to be around during the wedding craziness. Matt loves what he does, and he’ll make sure you love your product too!

    Thank you so much for your kind words, Jenny!! You and Travis were so much fun to work with! So happy I was able to capture your big day for you :)

  • Matt was amazing to work with start to finish. Not only is he flexible, responsive, professional, and extremely talented, but he is also genuine and kind. His passion for his work is exciting and it was a blast working with his assistant and him on our wedding day. We received a TON of compliments on our wedding photos. Now 3 months out, we still have people coming up to us telling us how amazing our wedding pictures are. Matt made us feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera, and he so beautifully captured our day. I would 100% recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer to capture their day!!

    Emily, thank you so so much for your kind words! That honestly meant so much to me. You and Matt were incredible! So thankful you were both willing to brave the snow for a few amazing shots as well! :)

  • My husband and I were blown away by Matt’s creativity, organization, and flexibility on our wedding day! I messaged Matt the day before worried about the rain, but Matt was not at all bothered by it! His confidence reassured me and our photos turned out amazing! He even pulled my now husband and I aside for a special romantic photo shoot in the foggy evening. I will certainly be going to Matt again for our photography needs and would recommend him for anyone who wants to make their wedding day special.

    Thank you so much Brianna! I am so happy that you were pleased with my work. It was so much fun working with you and Cristian! Congrats again on your marriage :) I hope to work with the two of you again in the future!

  • Matt is a great guy! I met him playing soccer together in college, so we asked him to shoot a same day video for our wedding! He was super easy to work with and worked extremely well with our photographer. If you want some who will deliver a great product and be out of the way, he is your guy!

    Thanks, Ethan! So glad you and Britney were pleased with the video! I had an absolute blast filming that with you and your wedding party. It was such a fun day!

  • I struggle finding only a few things to say about Matt – he’s ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE to work with and the finished product was IMMACULATE! Matt is a consummate professional who made us feel extremely comfortable on our big day - his creativity, confidence, kindness and attention to detail made for an incredible experience and we will cherish our photos and wedding video forever. Matt captured both our engagement photos and was also our wedding day photographer/videographer and we have been complimented by every person that has come across our photos/video. The same-day wedding video was a game-changer; the entire ballroom was blown away by his ability to create such a captivating wedding video and present it only an hour after the ceremony. From our wedding alone, we’ve had more than five couples reach out for his information as they were taken back by the quality of his work. Not only do I highly recommend working with Matt, he is assuredly our surefire contact for all photograph... Read more

    Wow... I am absolutely blown away by these words. You and Ines have been my biggest fans since you had found out about my services. Thank you SO much for these incredibly generous words. Your referrals and excitement towards my business is immensely appreciated. I am so pleased that you and Ines were this happy with my services. I can't wait to shoot for at least three of your friends/family next wedding season! It will be so cool to see you all there again :) I wish the best to the both of you.

  • Matt was great with doing what we wanted for our wedding day. We have a big family and even with a bit of a time crunch we made it work. He’s creative with his ideas and got some shots we probably wouldn’t have gotten otherwise.

    Thank you so much, Mikaela! You and Dillon were so amazing! I had such a blast :) And thank you for allowing me to experiment a little and be creative!!

  • Matt is one of the most creative and professional photographers we’ve ever worked with. My wife and I were lucky enough to have him as our wedding photographer, and we couldn’t have been more blessed! As the Groom, I didn’t realize how important it was in finding the perfect photographer, but I’m so happy that my wife did! We get compliments all the time that our photos look like they belong in a magazine, and it’s all Matt’s visions. He had so many creative and beautiful visions throughout our day, the pictures prove that Matt loves what he does. Highly recommend!!!

    Thank you so much, Lawrence! I am so glad you ended up loving the final results of my work! It was an absolute pleasure to work with you and Jackie on your special day. I had a blast! And thank you for also trusting me enough and allowing me the freedom to cast my visions. I truly had a ton of fun at the wedding :)
