Thanks so much for visiting my site! I’m Matt, a Milwaukee-based wedding photographer, and I’m looking forward to talking with you and your partner about your big day. My sidekick in the photo you’re looking at while reading this is Bob (the dog, if that wasn’t clear). While he won’t be participating in your wedding day, he’ll certainly be helping to supervise the editing process!
My photographic roots lie in landscape photography, and I first got really interested in shooting weddings while documenting my grandparent’s 70th anniversary (yes, you read that correctly – seventieth!) in early 2017. Their album from the 1940s was stunning. Seeing those photos, I knew I wanted to start capturing images for couples that they’d be able to look back on down the road and relive memories from that special day. Shortly after I was very lucky to connect with Gina of GE Creative, and have been photographing weddings as her second for the past three years.
I take an artistic, documentary approach to shooting weddings, and believe your wedding should unfold as naturally as possible. My job is to capture as many of the real, raw and authentic moments for you as possible, while you’re having fun and enjoying the celebration!
Don’t worry, we’ll still make sure to get some fantastic wedding portraits of the two of you (and your wedding party and families), but I don’t want that to be the focus of your day.
It’s also important to me to get to know you both before your wedding. Whether we meet for coffee, or an engagement shoot, or both, knowing a bit about your personality as a couple is a big part of my photographic process. It’s the little things that all add up to create the best photos. I’ll research your venue beforehand, to understand where the best light is, and what the best angles to shoot from are. On the day of, I’ll most likely show up early, and leave late (admittedly though I’m a terrible dancer, so most of those shots will probably be from the sidelines). Long story short, taking pictures is in my soul, and it consumes a huge portion of my free time. I absolutely love shooting weddings, and I’m humbled that you’re considering choosing me to be your photographer!
Please enjoy the images, and let’s connect soon!
