Your final photos are only a small part of your photography experience.  How your photographer works to get those images and how they treat you during the process is just as important to the final outcome.  What makes me different from other photographers is the same reason why you are here reading through all this information – we both care about your wedding photos just a little more than the average person.

Please explore the following sections to see what makes your experience with me unique.


Investment is not just some buzz word I throw around to be edgy.  Your wedding photography truly is an emotional investment that grows in value over time.  Like an heirloom in a safe deposit box, wedding photos are not meant to be looked at every single day.  They are meant to always be there to remind you of one of the happiest days of your life, taking you back through not only the events of the day you shared together, but also the memories, emotions, and feelings you experienced.

Over time, as memories fade, your photography becomes so much more important.  Sometimes it is the only link you have to your wedding day memories.  How do you want to remember yours?  This is not a responsibility I take lightly, and I am passionate about what I do.

Basic wedding photography coverage begins at $2800.
Complete wedding photography collections average $3500 and up.
I am an all-inclusive photographer, and I provide high resolution images with every photography collection.

Engagement sessions begin at $350 and up.


Please contact me for specifics, including collections, print, and album options. I will also be happy to design a custom package to meet your unique needs.

Are you the type of person who wants something a little more off the beaten path?  With my background in landscape photography, destination weddings and adventure sessions are a specialty of mine.  Rates for these are based on travel, contact me today for a custom quote.




Elopements and simple weddings with fewer than 20 guests have special rates, please contact me for a custom quote.





“If you want the shot no one else has, you have to be willing to do what no one else was willing to do.”

I have built my business and my life on this belief, and I feel it is just as meaningful in the world of wedding photography.  In a world full of people who are content with doing only what’s necessary to get by, I want to stand out as someone who is the exact opposite.

I believe you deserve a photographer who sees you as more than another number or sales goal.  Your story deserves more than the cookie cutter treatment, or the tired old “smile and say cheese” treatment.  You deserve a photographer who will lug 40lbs of extra equipment up a mountainside to chase that one perfect, defining photo.  You worked hard to get where you are today, and your photographer should too.

This is part of what makes me unique, and as a result I do things very differently from other photographers.  In order to be able to give every couple the individual attention they deserve, I only accept a limited number of weddings each year.  The first step is to contact me and set up an in-person meeting so we can get to know each other and make sure we are an excellent fit.  I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with you!

Don’t just take my word for it, read what others have said about their experiences:

Matthew’s photos of my wedding and rehearsal literally brought tears to my eyes when I saw them. They really captured the joy and love of the weekend. I don’t think I could recommend him highly enough. On top of his talent he’s also a super nice guy that was fun to have around. Book him!

McKinley & Adam

As a wedding planner myself, I’ve worked with many talented photographers. Matthew’s friendly, easy going personality, desire to get to know his clients and incredible raw talent put him at the top of my list both personally and professionally. We are beyond thrilled with the outcome of our photos, not to mention the amazing turnaround time for processing! We’ve had many friends and family speak wonders of Matthew as well, even those unable to attend have commented they felt like they were there just by looking through the photos. Thank you Matthew!

Hannah & Joe

When I began my search for wedding photographers, Matthew was the first one to come across my screen. After considering other options while still figuring out my budget, I ended up going with my first choice – and will never regret it. After an awesome engagement session, Matthew didn’t fail to deliver during my wedding, and he took so many amazing shots that it is impossible to choose a favorite. He really made my husband and I comfortable, and we adored working with him. Matthew is excellent with catching the best and most memorable parts of the big day, and my family and I were utterly blown away by Matthew’s professionalism and talent behind the camera. If you book him, I promise he will not disappoint.
