We told Matt that we wanted to make it to our wedding on time for Cocktail hour so that we could chat with ppl during that time and (hopefully) enjoy our dinner. He and his team made sure that we got all the shots we wanted with time to spare for some fun shots and we made it to cocktail hour on time. During the wedding, we were able to enjoy ourselves and didn't even notice the photographers around us. So far, we've seen a few samples and they are awesome. From what we've seen so far, Matt is able to truly capture the moment for you. We had a "sparkler send off" which i was skeptical about. However, Matt captured the moment in a way that brings me back to that exact moment of the night. The sparklers are caught in the best light and the exposure is spot on. We are looking forward to receiving the full package from Matt. He comes with our highest recommendation.
