Things You Want

To Know

THE PHILOSOPHY

Your final photos are only a small part of your wedding photography experience.  How your photographer works to get those images and how they treat you during the process is just as important as the photos themselves.  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.

+ THE INVESTMENT

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. Click the headings below to view some basic information about my rates for weddings and elopements

Are you the type of person who wants something a little more off the beaten path for your wedding photography?  With my background in landscape photography, destination weddings and adventure sessions are a specialty of mine.  Rates for these are based on my all-day rates, but every destination is different.  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.

+ THE EXPERIENCE

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

Jamie + Eric
"I hadn’t originally considered using him for the wedding because we were doing a destination wedding in Playa del Carmen Mexico. After we received the engagement photos I knew that no one would capture our special day the way he could. "
Adam + McKinley
" Matthew’s photos of my wedding and rehearsal literally brought tears to my eyes when I saw them. "
Marissa + Ben
" We couldn't have found a better photographer/artist to capture our special day!! Matthew is extremely talented and literally captures your wedding through the eyes of an artist. "

+ THE DIFFERENCE

“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 personal life around 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 do the job, 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 just 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!
