Hi! My name is Matt and I’m a wedding and elopement photographer based out of Tacoma, WA.
I love a good adventure and I love a good challenge, always thinking outside the box. One day you may find me summiting Mt. Hood in Portland, OR, and the next you may find me camping in the middle of Eastern, WA, shooting the Milky Way on a clear summer night. Or, you might just find me walking along side you and your loved one, in a remote location, capturing one of the most memorable moments of your life, in timeless form.

Tacoma, Washington is where I call home. However, I'm all over the place. Locally, I shoot all around the Pacific Northwest and the Puget Sound, to include Seattle, Bellevue, Kirkland, Issaquah, Snohomish County, Leavenworth, and Yakima, to name a few awesome spots in the Northwest.
So, if you're looking for a wedding photographer or a portrait photographer in the area, we should definitely connect. I've also shot weddings in Oregon, Colorado and Arizona to name a few states. I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, hence my Instagram profile tagline, "Kentucky Bred, Northwest Infused" and travel there frequently. Having your wedding in Louisville or even Lexington? Give me a shout!
In addition to the above, my fiance', Jacki and I love to travel and will find an excuse to go just about anywhere. If you're thinking of having a destination wedding or eloping in Sedona, Joshua Tree National Park, Estes Park, Zion National Park, Hawaii (Oahu, Kauai, Kona) or some other awesome location, let's make it happen. I am not a fan of mediocracy and welcome the challenge and adventure that awaits.
Matt photographed my wedding in Estes Park, CO in September 2017. He was absolutely amazing and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of our photos. He brings a lot of creativity to the table and was able to capture images I wasn't able to think of.
Matt was our photographer for our elopement. Pure, raw talent. I didn't cry during the wedding, but I almost did just looking at the photos! His natural skill and eye for capturing moments, and the little things normally overlooked has just blown me away.
We hired Matt to be our photographer for our wedding and he was AMAZING!!!!!! Matt is really good with communication and making sure he’s got details about our wedding to make sure he captures everything you want. We got so many good photos and he’s got such a great eye. He listened to what we wanted and delivered.
Matt is a lively photographer with lots of imagination to capture not only the right picture, but at the right time,He was very welcoming to our ideas and wanted only to make it special and right for us. Was always so fun and was able to break the ice for those of you who are nervous to do a shoot. I highly recommend because he was flexible, artistic, and fun!
Matt took our engagement photos near Destination Pass in Washington. He made sure that we were comfortable shooting at each location, which was really important to us, especially when shooting intimate engagement photos. Matt was extremely personable and easy to work with. He provided prompt responses and was really thorough with organizing our photo location, time and logistics.
Starting with your wedding photography- the images I capture are art. They are timeless. To capture the most authentic and genuine images of your day, it's my job as your wedding photographer to be everywhere at once without being seen, or even felt.
Matt has a gift of a quiet presence....we forgot he was even in the room! - Erik (WA DC)
Perhaps I learned this from being stalked by mountain lions in the back country, but the reality is that I've made it my practice to capture the most important moments of your special day by having an invisible presence. I'll be by your side - focused, present, and supporting you throughout your day. I'll make you laugh, help you loosen up, and allow you to genuinely enjoy your day and find comfort in front of a camera.
At first glance, a wedding portfolio should "wow" you, at the very least. The photographs should capture a variety of the wedding day events - and you should feel the emotions from the bride and groom, family members, and guests. Imagine the interactions of the guests as if they were yours, sharing in your wedding day.
I didn't cry at the ceremony but I cried looking at our photos! - Michelle (Cle Elum, WA Elopement)
This is my gift to you. Capturing raw, genuine emotions that will last forever in your photos. It is my job to help you and your family remember every detail of your beautiful wedding day. I take pride in knowing that you've trusted this process to me - capturing every moment to be treasured for your lifetime together.
