The very best!
My husband and I got married on 6/15/19. We used Maria for our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. Maria is the absolute BEST! She was super accommodating from our very first conversation throughout the entire wedding planning and actual day. We spoke several times during this time and she was always extremely responsive and so helpful planning our timeline for the day of. She is incredibly talented and truly an artist with a unique eye. And not to mention a total sweetheart!! She is so easy to work with and made taking a million photos fun. Our engagement and wedding photos came out flawless. I will definitely be using Maria again in the future!Sent on 09/09/2019

Best Photographer Ever!
Best photographer ever! I knew from when I got engaged that I didn't want a cookie cutter wedding or the same old hum-drum looking pictures. I began an endless online search for a photographer who's portfolio looked unique and artistic. Every wedding photographer's photos looked the same: boring and nothing special. It was then recommended to me look at a portfolio by Maria Mattera. As soon as I saw her portfolio, my eyes lit up and I lost my breath. Her photos were so beautiful! They looked like gorgeous paintings and something from the pages of wedding magazines. I showed my fiancee a side by side difference of her photographs as opposed to a few other photographers and he couldn't believe the difference. Maria's photographs were undeniably better than the rest. On the day I met Maria to discuss working together, it didn't feel like I was interviewing a photographer, it felt as if I met a new friend. I was so comforted by that because a bride and groom spend the majority of their wedding day with their photographer. I knew having someone as sweet as her would give us a wonderful day. Our decision to have Maria for our wedding photographer was without a shadow of a doubt the best decision we could have made. Maria was punctual, professional, and genuinely excited to shoot our wedding. She paid attention to details I would have never thought to photograph and she went above and beyond my expectations. She even stayed after the wedding just to get some creative photographs that she had visualized and knew we'd love. Efforts like this prove that she takes her photographs out of love and not because your wedding is just another job. Maria had my finished photos ready faster than I expected and OH MY GOODNESS! Stunning and gorgeous is an understatement. My wedding photos looked artistic, creative, and truly captured the feeling of the day. Everyone who saw them commented that they were the best wedding photos they had ever seen and that they should be in a magazine. So, if you are looking for magazine worthy wedding photographs, look no further. Maria Mattera is a high quality, artsy wedding photographer who will make you feel at ease on your wedding day and produce gorgeous photographs. With Maria, you can feel stress free knowing that you will receive the best of the best service and have the best of the best photographs to cherish forever.Sent on 03/25/2019
