LIFE, LOVE, & LAUGHTER | PHOTOGRAPHY THAT MATTERS
Photography has been a life long source of friendship and adventure for me and I’ve been learning the craft since I was a kid. I photographed my first wedding for a friend in college and now 500+ weddings and thousands of portrait sessions later I still get excited about every shoot. They are all opportunities to make new friends, explore beautiful locations, and share my creativity. I’m proud to be a full-time, professional photographer in Nashville.
My style is the culmination of many influences from great movies to fashion photography but I’m most inspired by people. My favorite photos are the ones that breath with life and show the joy and happiness. Weddings are perfect for this. I get to photograph people laughing, people crying, portraits of whomever catches my eye, action shots on the dance floor, children playing, and old friends reuniting. There are times when I’m a fly on the wall and others when I feel like a showman organizing groups and doing my best to make people laugh. Its the perfect job for anyone who loves photographing people. If you read reviews and testimonials from my clients you’ll understand why I find it so rewarding. My motivation is pretty pure. I want my clients to be ecstatic about their photos.

Matt, I cannot adequately express to you how beautiful these photographs are….. You captured ‘moments’ in such a beautiful way. The lighting, composition…..timing. None of them are ‘posed’. My mom said, “you (me) were meant to have you as our photographer”. I could not agree more and feel so grateful. You know this, but you truly have been blessed with a gift. Thank you for preserving that day. Forever grateful. Mesmerized, Carrie Moore

The wedding pictures are AMAZING!!! We got home from our honeymoon and watched the video you put together. THANK YOU SO SO MUCH . Everyone from our wedding raved about you! You seriously went above and beyond for us the whole weekend. And the lighting ... oh my goodness I’m going to have a hard time picking which ones to blow up and frame! You were also just lovely to work with!

Matt!!! THANK YOU so much!!! We couldn't be happier with our photos. You truly have a talent and a level of professionalism that is unmatched. All of our family and friends keep saying the same thing: you captured the joy of the day. Everyone also said that you were the nicest guy ever, which we totally agree with! :) Our group of people were pretty crazy, and you did such an amazing job of documenting it all. Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts. Nicole & Brenton
Natalie & Jeff
Matt!!!! They and you are amazing!!!! I can not begin to tell you how grateful I am that you were there to capture my most precious memory! I really appreciate you and your talent. There is NOT 1 picture that I don't like. How am I going to choose???!!! I have people at the shop (that I barely know) that want to order one just to hang in their house because they love the picture so much! I can't say it enough but thank you, thank you, thank you for being there with us and doing such an amazing job!!!!!!!!!!! You ROCK!!!!! Sincerely, Natalie

Matt, these photos are UNBELIEVABLE! I cannot believe what a fantastic job you and Courtney did capturing every part of the day. The whole thing was just amazing, and I can absolutely relive it all through the photos. If I didn't have work to do, I would probably just be scrolling through them all day. I am so incredibly thankful that we will have all of these fabulous photos to look through for the next several decades--they are just beautiful. I also love the slideshow that you created, I think I'll have to go watch it again now... Thanks so much for everything! Emily Linton

Matt is Simply the Best. We flew Matt to Albany on Friday evening for the wedding on Saturday. Saturday morning we were awakened around 4:30 with thunder, lightening, and rain. The rain finally tapered off, but we were all very nervous about the rain starting up again. Matt was so calm when we spoke with him and he wanted me to assure my daughter that the photographs would turn out fine, that actually overcast skies were better for the pictures. He was absolutely right. They were beautiful. His eye for detail is amazing. Every time I look at the pictures, I find a new favorite! He is low-key, accomodating, so willing to please and loves what he does. It is evident in his work. I cannot recommend him highly enough. Marta Allen

Hi Matt, These photos are more AMAZING than I could have ever, ever imagined. I sent them to all of my family, my bridesmaids, and our good family friends. Everyone has said they are just about the best wedding photos they have ever seen. You captured so many aspects I never even knew took place. Your photos made me want to go relive the entire day all over again. I cannot wait to put together a wedding album and I'll talk to you about that when things settle a bit in the coming weeks. Thank you thank you! Katie (and Scott)

Andolyn & Chris live in New Orleans but decided to have a destination wedding so their friends and family could get away for a fun filled weekend in Nashville. They chose Long Hollow Garden and Nursery to be their wedding venue. It is an actual, working wedding venue and it was an absolutely gorgeous location. […]
Even though Lindsay and Conor got ready elsewhere they decided to make a quick stop by their reception venue, Cheekwood Botanical Gardens, to have a moment together and to take advantage of the beautiful venue and beautiful weather for some photos before taking a trolley to Christ Church Cathedral. This way they could go straight […]
