Couldn⠹t be more satisfied

STOP SEARCHING. Throw your notes away. Hire them now. Sue and Matt literally could not be more amazing. Sue is a super talented musician and DJ, and Matt is LITERALLY EVERYWHERE on your big day, but yet you don’t even see him. He has captured photos for me that I seriously don’t even know how he got them. BOTH of them are the type of people we need more of in this world. Honestly, they’re the best.

Love Love Love!

Can not even describe how happy we were with Sue and Matt! We did a simple elopement ceremony including ourselves, our children, and a few friends. I was so lost when trying to plan, given we are from Ohio and had never been to the Outer Banks. I found Artz music & photography after extensive online searching. I only needed basic services since it was just an elopement ceremony and Artz was the most reasonable in price. I contacted Sue and she helped me every step of the way! She kept in regular contact with me via email and text message. She made some great recommendations for local vendors and things to do. She was very flexible as to where to do the ceremony and what to do if the weather did not work out. We did the ceremony at 7pm. I had two one year olds and two 6 year olds, all of which were on the verge of melting down at any given moment. Sue and Matt managed to still get great photos of the kids and everything came out perfect! We will definitely be going back to Sue and Matt for our future family photos!

Absolutely wonderful!

Sue was so great to work with; not only did she do a wonderful job on performing the wedding ceremony her husband took amazing pictures. The price was lower than any other competitors but the value was outstanding! They were flexible on timing and gave great recommendations. If you want the best look no further!

I've know Sue and Matt a long time and have teamed with them on many many weddings. Sue and I laugh about the fact that we could probably write a book on how many funny things we've seen happen at weddings. They are genuine people who love to take care of couples on their wedding day.
