To watch Matthew at work is like viewing a genius artisan at the height of his creativity. A master of his craft, the camera is merely an extension of his heart. Described by his peers as a rare talent and a “natural”, Matthew is thoroughly at home at a wedding. Modest but passionately buoyant, he connects easily with his clients, uncovering emotion and hidden meanings not readily seen by most. Often mistaken for a family member, Matthew is gifted with an uncanny knack for being in the right place at the right time, rescuing volatile once-in-a-lifetime moments from disappearing forever.

When asked what he strives for most in his work, his perfect answer is: "I'm just looking for images that move me." Matthew J. Wagner is NorthWestern Pennsylvania's best-kept secret no longer.

Awesome pics. We look so much more attractive in these than we do in real life. And hey since life is short and photographs are long, that's what matters.

He's outgo to guy for family portraits/ business portraits too.

Highly recommend. Worth every penny.

Matthew was a joy to work with and certainly has one of the best eyes for a shot in the Hartford area. His prices are competitive with other are photographers, but his quality of work generally exceeds them.

It's difficult to put into words what a gifted photographer Matthew is. I guess it's best to just say he'll show you how he captures love. Matt is enormously talented and sensitive and keen to everything going on around him - he captures that moment just after you let your guard down, that intimate heart beat of reflection - and happiness. He does happiness extremely well. He's the absolute best in the biz, and a really really nice guy too.
