Working with Matthew was truly a dream. We miss him already! We found Matthew through Instagram and were immediately drawn to the lighting and artistic vision of his photography. He was our first choice and we were lucky he was available and cu...
stomized a package for us to our budget. Our package included a 1 hour indoor studio shoot + 2 shooters for our wedding day. Each time we saw Matthew, it was truly a pleasure working with him. His responsiveness to emails and attention to detail made him our #1 vendor. Our family and friends even told us that he was so friendly to them on our wedding day. I'm so grateful we found him. Matthew, we wish we could get married again so that we could have you take photos for us! We can't wait to see the rest of our wedding photos. Thank you for all you do!

are still awaiting our wedding photos, Matthew and his team took such a variety of photos, from detail shots, more panned out shots, candid, and portrait-style so we had a good mix of photos. He also made sure we got photos with everyone who was important to us, while keeping us on schedule, which really impressed our wedding venue. He also was very responsive and easy to talk about ideas with both for our wedding and engagement photoshoot. We can't recommend him enough!

If a picture says a thousand words, Matthew’s pictures say infinitely more. He has this incredible ability to harness natural light in ways that always puts his subjects in the best possible light and we simply cannot be happier with how our en...
gagement session and wedding photos turned out. He didn’t just give us what we wanted, he gave it to us better and so much more.
Just as impressively, Matthew made an otherwise extremely self-conscious couple feel completely comfortable in front of the camera — to the extent that we often forgot it was there. He put us at ease even through the most tender of moments and patiently gave us pointers on how to position ourselves without ever making us feel silly.
In short, Matthew is a first-rate photographer - second to none - and a true master of his craft and we recommend him unequivocally.
We are indebted to the CLY by Matthew team for making us look the best we probably ever will and for capturing these very special moments in our lives - even parts of the day we had forgotten - with such style and eye for detail. We are convinced there can be no two people more talented and fun to work with than Matthew and Fernando!

He is so kind and enthusiastic and talented; I would 100000% recommend CLY by Matthew to ALL my friends for future events!

Matthew was an absolute pleasure to work with and so talented. We knew photography was a big element of our wedding so we looked through a lot of photographers. We ended up going with Matthew’s classic style and we also loved that he shot with ...
film as well, which gives a certain vibe/quality to the photos. We also loved that he offered a photo booth service, which our guests loved and made for some great souvenirs in our guest book.
We were both very shy so we were very glad we did the engagement shoot as a trial run. Definitely recommend that! He made us feel at ease immediately (even in the streets of NYC when it felt like everyone was staring at us!). It is obvious Matthew really cares about his craft and he is a true artist. SO glad we booked Matthew as our photographer!

He answered any questions we had during the wedding process and kept open communication with us. He was patient and professional throughout the process and my husband and I felt comfortable taking pictures with him. During the day of he was very detailed yet gentle in his directions to us and he made us feel very special.
I can't wait to hang our photos in our home and I hope that this will not be the last time I work with him. Finally, Matthew was very timely with our photos which we really appreciated. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs a wedding photographer or anyone who wants to capture a special moment.

During the shoot, Matthew helped us feel more comfortable being in front of the camera, by directing us and giving us tricks to make us feel less awkward. After the first few shots, the camera shyness dissipated, and it began to feel natural.
We had so much fun with Matthew at our engagement shoot and are looking forward to have him photograph our wedding in June.

ng the special moments of your day in an artistic way, (unlike most other wedding photographers out there). But equally as important, he is a great guy and very easy to work with. Leading up to the wedding he kept in close contact with us, insuring that we were comfortable with the schedule for the day. On the day of the wedding he stayed calm, cool and collected, even when we were running behind schedule (he even stayed 15 minutes extra so he could capture our cake cutting ceremony)! And during the ceremony and reception he managed to capture exquisite shots while not being obtrusive. I could go on and on, but I encourage you to check out his portfolio so you can see his amazing work for yourself. I can't wait until I have another excuse to use CLY by Matthew!
