Welcome, I'm Matt. I'm a tenured photographer with years of experience within various forms of photography and videography. Everything from commercial videography and photography, portrait photography, headshots, events, and other various forms. Having experience within the various forms of media, I work well in natural light and studio light settings, and have the ability to be flexible in any situation.
The true joy I get from portrait and wedding photography is the connections and capturing others stories in a creative, genuine fashion. I believe that the most important part of your wedding day, besides having a blast, is having an album to look back on and remember what a blast that day was. The same goes for all other shoots and projects that I work on.
I think the most important thing you should know, is that through my years of experience in photography and film making, of various types, I have developed the skills that have allowed me to be one of the most diversely skilled photographers in the Pacific Northwest.
My roots in photography go way back into my Navy days. I was always getting yelled at for having my camera on the flight deck of the aircraft carrier I served on, the USS Abraham Lincoln. Every port call I went to, I wanted to capture the difference cultures, the people and over all experiences that I had. Little did I know, that the newly found curiosity would later reappear when I became more active outdoors and became obsessed with the beauty that the Pacific Northwest provides us.
Fast forward to 10 years ago, my passion grew for photography and I began to experiment with other forms of photography, to include portraits, events, commercial and lifestyle. Since then, I have worked with Ted X, shot commercial projects during backpacking excursions and filmed with special forces in remote Utah. I’ve shot weddings and elopements in some epic places, to include landing on the middle of a glacier in AK for an elopement. These unique experiences are fun but what motivates me, is genuine connections that I develop with the people that I shoot with.
True connection and a great experience is what my main goal is when I work with my clients. Your experience will be reflected in your images and I went those images to show what a blast you had.
I look forward to chatting with you and hearing about your big day or a vision you have for portraiture.
