Meet Your Photographer
Hi, I’m Matt! I’m your Midwest born-and-raised, taco devouring, travel junkie, dad-joke telling, fun sock wearing, photographic story telling photographer!
Weddings are my jam, and I wouldn’t trade my profession for the world.
I believe that the foundation of an amazing photography experience begins with the connection between a photographer and their subjects, so building comfortable, trusting and long-lasting relationships with my couples is my first and foremost priority.
By the time we’re through, we’ll have lauged together, cried together, and hopefully played some mean air guitar on your dance floor together. Let’s create something amazing!
I believe every couple has their own exciting story to tell, and it’s my goal to share that story through your images!
My photographic style is a unique blend between the real, raw emotion of photojournalism, and the refined, creative edge of editoral and commerical style photography.
To do so, my approach to every session is to keep the mood fun, light-hearted and totally stress-free. This helps ensure natural, authentic interactions, allowing you to focus less on the camera, and more on your love.
When it comes to poses and creative direction, I’ll make sure to guide you every step of the way. All you’ll need to worry about is having an absolute blast -- I’ll take care of the rest!
Destination weddings are a specialty of mine, but I also work largely in the Chicago and Northwest Indiana region. I absolutely love to travel, and have been contracted in places such as China, Tanzania, France, Cancun, Jamaica and all over the US.

Great, professional, and funny
Experience was fantastic, he was professional, funny, went the extra mile, and made sure we had time for all our extra/bonus/specialty pictures we wanted off location and in the evening. Clicked with the wedding party and guests and was polite to everyone.Sent on 10/06/2019

Easy as Pie
If you want to know how much faith I had in Matt to do what we hired him to do...I didn’t even request a final meeting before the wedding. He reached out to me to verify the document I submitted with shot requests. There was literally 0 doubt in my mind in hiring him. In fact, he was the 1st vendor I signed because I KNEW he had to photograph our wedding. You will not be disappointed if you hire him. In fact, he will exceed your expectations 10 fold. He’s the photographer that isn’t afraid to make himself look goofy to keep everyone comfortable and laughing. Not only are his skills amazing, but his creative side will astound you. Just take a look at any of his photos and I literally mean any and you will not be disappointed.Sent on 09/24/2019

The best I could’ve asked for!
Matt was truly amazing! He made us feel so comfortable and was so laid back throughout the whole process especially when getting everyone together for family pictures. He also thinks outside the box and got amazing shots of us at sunset! We had tons of people comment on how involved he was during the dancing and having fun getting shots of everyone that was there. I can’t recommend him enough and his whole team!Sent on 09/30/2019
