Matthew was so phenomenal with my photoshoot! I would recommend him a million times if I am able to. He was so kind and was making sure that everyone was comfortable while we were taking pictures. Honestly, it was like a friend was taking the photos. He was making jokes with everyone and the pictures seemed so genuine. I’ve had a few photo shoots done but this one has to be the best one. When the photographer is able to connect with you, you can truly see it in the photos. These are memories that will be with me forever and Matthew really went out of his way to make them beautiful. Don’t even think twice before booking Matthew, just do it! He’s wonderful.

Details: Graduation portrait • Natural / environmental (photographed in an outdoor setting) • Candid (captured in the moment) • Artistic (focus on composition, lighting) • Traditional / classic (looking directly at the camera) • Outdoors • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

FAQs

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    First they let me know what type of shoot they are looking for. Then we discuss what they expect out of the shoot. That determines time needed and price. After that we can go over locations, wardrobe, etc. pretty straight forward and easy.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I do have a Bachelors of Fine arts as well I have worked along side some of the biggest photographers in the world. I always strive to continue learning and even educate new photographers in the art of photography.

  • What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

    Focus on potential photographers work and style more then price. This will help you be sure you are getting what you want in the final product.
