We heard about Matt through friends of ours, after he photographed their wedding in Italy. After we got engaged ourselves, we shopped around for a photographer local to us in Philadelphia, but couldn’t get Matt’s photos (or Instagram feed) out ...
of our minds. His work is so distinctive. So moody. So stunning. So unlike 99% of everything else that’s out there.
For someone who has been named one of the best wedding photographers in America (according to Brides, three years running), Matt is impossibly humble and down to earth. There are very few people we would have wanted to be in such close proximity with for so much of our wedding day. Flying him out to Pennsylvania to document our big day was one of the best decisions we made in the 12+ months we spent planning. This became even more clear after we had an unexpected 90-minute timeline delay and Matt single handedly got us back on track, with a Plan B that surpassed everything we’d envisioned for Plan A.
I don’t know what we were more impressed by: his speed/efficiency (especially with family photos!) or his skill (especially his ability to find the best light, frame the shot, and get two people who are admittedly camera-shy to relax and just be in the moment).
We wanted the opposite of a cookie cutter wedding album, someone who would put us both at ease in front of the camera, someone who would be great with our guests, and someone who would capture memories made to last a lifetime. Matt (over)delivered on every front. If he has your date free, waste no time getting that contract signed!

Matt is the best! He photographed our elopement in Italy and our reception in Chicago. Our Italy photographs are stunning. We cannot believe it is actually us in the photos. He perfectly captured the day, while keeping it special and fun. We di...
splayed a slideshow of our Italy photos at our reception, and our guests continued to comment on how much they loved the photos. I really wanted wedding photos that were special and not "typical" photos, and Matt easily exceeded those expectations.

Matt Lien takes the most AMAZING photos. He captures the emotions and overall feel of the day and I feel like I'm reliving our wedding day every time I look at our photos. Definitely worth the investment.

One word to describe Matt: AMAZING!
After our first meeting with Matt, my husband and I immediately knew we wanted him to photograph our wedding. He's professional, easy-going, and an incredibly talented photographer. He was so responsive t...
hroughout our entire engagement (year and a half), and he shot our engagement photos too, which were stunning. Seriously, we were told they could be in a magazine, and for that all the credit goes to him. And I can't say enough about our wedding photos, the day of the wedding he was super calm (which I needed), and he got all of the shots I had been hoping for. He caught so many candid moments, and the shots of us outside by Lake Calhoun are breathtaking. I promise, choosing Matt to photograph your wedding will be the best choice you make!

What a gift it is to be able to honestly trust someone with the task of capturing your wedding day. That is what Matt was able to provide for us. From the first meeting, we knew he knew what he was doing and felt completely comfortable handing ...
over the task. I never once questioned whether we'd made the right decision, or felt like I needed to do any work - he took his job and ran with it. Definitely one of the best.

Matt did a phenomenal job with our wedding and engagement pictures. He's very easy to work with and the pictures were everything we hoped for (and I was very picky with selecting a photographer). He was very affordable as well.
