Client Testimonial

Matt was amazing! He did a wonderful job capturing every moment of our wedding and we loved all of our photos. We received many compliments from our guests on how much they were impressed by all the photos he was taking at the wedding and then when they saw his work. -Jaclyn

Client Testimonial

Matt has photographed several of our friends and we decided to give him a call. From the moment we sat down for a consultation with Matt, we knew he was our guy! He was very professional, showed us his work and what he can do. By far one of the best photographers out there! He was very available for questions and concerns we had before the big day, which made everything easy. He gave us direction while he was shooting and asked us if we had any special pictures that we would like, which was awesome. I don’t know what more to say other than, Matt is worth every penny! WE LOVED HIM and his work is perfection. I hope one day we can work with him again! -Crystal

Client Testimonial

Matt is an INCREDIBLE photographer! He is very professional, talented, and energetic. We received over 1,000 photos less than a week after our wedding, and the quality is phenomenal. He was able to capture every moment I wanted AND was able to go above and beyond and capture moments I didn’t think to photograph. He was able to complete bridals, bridesmaid, and groomsmen, reception, details, etc. all before the ceremony started, which left ample amount of time to take pictures as husband and wife and family. He is VERY organized in taking family pictures (even when you have multiple families and some with over 30 members like we do), and has everything down to a science of when to photograph what. He is SO easy to work with AND fun!! I cannot recommend Matt enough to anyone looking for an excellent photographer. He will do the BEST job and make it fun! I received so many compliments on our photos and during the reception and ceremony, he is like a fly on the wall. He captures so many great expressions and candid moments without anyone noticing he is there. Definitely use Matt for your wedding!! (and any other occasion for that matter!) 🙂 -Rachel
