    When it came time for us to look for our wedding photographer we did not have an easy time that is until we found Matt DeBackere. We were looking for someone who could match our wants and styles and Matt fit the mold perfectly! He was able to work with our busy schedules and exceed our expectations. Our first meeting I thought for sure he would high tail it out, since I had so many different thoughts and ideas; instead he assured me that all my thoughts and ideas were possible and even gave me more. Matt is a blessing to work with as he makes every detail count and the entire time you work with him a breeze. Him and his wife understood our visions for the day and made it happen. The whole day was smooth, easy, and comfortable thanks to Matt and his wife! We would recommend them to anyone for any occasion.

    I had headshots and photos done with Matt Debackere back in 2008- thus I knew that when I got married I would reach out to him! So 10 years later, this phenomenal photographer was called and our wedding photos were amazing due to his guidance, leadership and experience! All those that attended our small wedding ceremony continue to tell us how blessed we were to have Matt as our photographer and how beautiful the photos were that resulted!

    I strongly believe that the most important aspect of wedding planning is picking the perfect photographer. I would absolutely, no questions ask, pick Matt DeBackere again as our wedding photographer. He did an amazing job and I have so many cherished photos from my wedding as well as our engagement shoot. He was worth every penny and then some

    Matt was absolutely perfect in every way. He is creative and took pictures that I never would have thought of as the mom of the bride. We are thrilled with his photos. He took the time to get just the right shot. We have so many special memories from a beautiful day captured artistically! We are so pleased with his work.

    Matt is a fabulous photographer. If not sure what you are wanting he has plenty of ideas or if you know exactly what you want he will accommodate you. I couldn’t be any happier with our photos, best day ever!

    There are not enough words to describe how awesome Matt is. He is simply the best. Super easy to get along with, and very efficient. It was amazing watching him move around and snap all the photos. He makes you feel very comfortable so you get genuine emotions in the photos, and the quality is great. I'd highly recommend him to anyone needing a photographer. You can definitely tell he has been in the business a long time. Super pro!

    Matt was a pleasure to work with! We first used him for our engagement session, which was seemless, and then for our big day! With 300+people attending I wanted to be able to relax knowing our photography was under control. Grateful for Matt, to say the least! The quality of our photos are A+ and the canvas’ and personalized photo album bring tears to my eyes every time I look at it:)

    Matt was amazing for everything from the engagement photos to the big day! I found out about him when he did my brother’s wedding, and I had to have him for mine! I highly recommend Matt.

    Matt’s photography is incredible! I am 100% happy with all of my pictures and album.
    Matt made the wedding party feel comfortable. He learned their games, kept us laughing, and guided us through the day.
    His photography packages are worth every dime! He is a 10!

    Matt is a wonderful photographer! He and his wife make a great team. They are so nice and really try to get to know the bride and groom. They made us feel so comfortable during our engagement pictures and had the edits and jump drive to us is less than a week. I can't wait for him to capture our wedding day!

    Matt is awesome! He is very professional, offers tons of options and perks and does an awesome job. We used him for engagement pictures and our wedding. He was there for everything, stayed late and was super laid back and easy to work with. He even put up with our dog on both shoots!

    Photo journalistic photographer. Really worked with me on price given the off season of my event. Check out his blog of wedding photos: www.mattdebackere.com/blog
    I wasn't picky, I didn't give him a list of shots or anything and I'm nothing but pleased. He's very go with the flow but does provide a timeline of when photos will be done (bride, bridal party, groom, groom's party, family, etc). He was working with us in January weather and was able to quickly and successfully get the group photos done. He was great!
