Introduction
I'm a published, full time photography professional with an LLC and Insurance. That stands out in a big way as many folks on Thumbtack are enthusiasts trying to make money on the side. I've been published in the NY Times and Vogue to name a couple of professional credits and have been trusted to shoot a number of celebrities, some of whom are included in the photographs submitted as part of this Thumbtack profile. I'm fortunate enough to have gained dozens of full-time and year-round clients from my Thumbtack bookings, which I'd like to say speaks to both my professionalism as well as my ability to put the clients at ease during the shoot. I'm exceptionally personable (which sounds awfully boastful when writing) but in truth there's a definitive need to make the people you're working with feel comfortable within the framework of a shoot in order to get exceptional results. I've worked with clients from all over the World and have photographed events for both US based and International Corporations and Non-profit organizations. If you hire me through Thumbtack - you're getting my services at a tremendous discount to my normal hourly, event or day rates :) Thumbtack provides a filler for otherwise empty spaces in my schedule. It should also be noted that quotes, especially those received via Thumbtack's "instant match" profiling system are tentative and subject to change given the actual parameters of the job in question. As an example, Weddings and Events should not be lumped together, they are two very different specialities. I'm a member of the Professional Photographers Association as well as the National Press Photographers Association and the United States Press Agency. Individual, Family and Corporate clients including celebrities, professional advertising agencies, publishers, sports franchises, The Hockey Hall of Fame, NHL, NY Rangers, New Jersey Devils, NY Islanders, NWHL, USA Hockey, IIHF, Team USA and the NCAA. Locations include NYC, NJ, CT and the Hamptons. Specialties include - Family Portraiture, Weddings, Headshots, Engagement, Proposals, Corporate and Non-profit Events as well as Professional and Amateur Sports. I enjoy every job for the unique opportunity to interact with, and deliver something special, to each and every client. As a full time pro - I take the client's expectations and my delivery of a superior product very seriously. As a creative with years of experience, I'm well versed with client interactions, helping them to express the vision they have for the job at hand, and exceeding those expectations. I also enjoy the interaction with clients when on location - those "in the moment" type of shots that help to elevate the work of a pro versus the standard fare delivered by an enthusiast doing photography work on the side. Photography is both a highly technical and creative endeavor - some have one of those two aspects well in hand, far less have both.

Hosting our staff holiday event, we had the pleasure of working with Matthew Raney Photography, and it was an experience beyond our expectations. Matthew's professionalism transformed our event into a memorable visual story. His ability to capture candid moments and the essence of the celebration was fantastic! What stood out was Matthew's approachable and accommodating demeanor, making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. This resulted in natural, authentic, FUN, and stunning photos. The quickness with which Matthew delivered the final photos was impressive. We received a beautifully curated gallery of our event much sooner than anticipated, allowing us to relive those moments via social media almost immediately. The quality of the photos are exceptional! Matthew Raney Photography not only met but exceeded our expectations.

Matt just did an awesome photo session after our civil ceremony on Friday, 5/19, in Brooklyn Bridge Park. He was punctual, professional and fun! He made taking photos with our family and friends quick and easy, just like we requested, so they could go eat while we finished some more private photos as husband and wife. Matt took his time to get the perfect angle, light and setting for each photo. After we finished some photos in the beautiful garden area he gave us a little sneak peak of the shots, and we can’t wait to see more - gorgeous! We loved working with Matt so far, can’t wait for him to be taking photos at our reception in December, and 100% highly recommend him to anyone looking for an excellent photographer that will provide the highest level of quality at an extremely fair price.

Matt is AMAZING! After speaking with Matt about my surprise engagement photo shoot. I could tell how professional, helpful, and experienced Matt was. Our surprise photo shoot was in Central Park, the photos are incredible!!! My Fiancee was completely surprised, Matt did a great job not letting Melissa know he was taking our pictures until the moment Melissa realized I was proposing. Highly recommended Matt, for quality, professionalism, experience, and knowledge. Plus Matt made us both laugh and be at ease this important moment. Thank you for Everything.
