Goes beyond !
I sent 4-5 inquiries from yelp to photographers. I got 3 responses back. Matt was the only one with a phone numbers that I can find easily and I txt him He responded back on Yelp and txt and even called me. I booked with him right away. I told him exactly was I wanted and sent pictures to him. He said he can do it. He stayed in contact with me through the weeks leading up to our appt. Matt was very easy to work with. I bought 10 outfits he picked the best that would do well in pictures and we rolled with it. After getting my hair and makeup (Mobile Las Vegas hair and makeup) I drive to his location. He had everything setup ... no wasting time. He took his time and I never felt he wanted me to hurry! He wanted to capture the most perfect pictures and would adjust lighting and angles! He's very out going and willing to work hard for you !
Book with Matt!
Had the pleasure of meeting and working with Matt today on Freemont St for engagement pictures. What I thought would be a quick session became a fun full of laughter event that was all amazing and fun. Time flew by and never a odd or awkward moment- it was like hanging out with an old friend. Directions were clear and detail was so on point not only wanting to capture our personality but the beautiful city and what it has to offer. Im beyond excited to see how they turned out. Seeing his portfolio of work Im sure he captured moments and memories for a life time. Cant wait to work with him again. Planning a wedding is stressful and having strangers being a huge part to lay trust in is hard but I feel confidence after today we have made the correct choice in finding Matt. Not only would I love for him to be a guest I know he would do our wedding photos not only justice but deliver beyond our expectations. It was a joy to be with him today and would highly recommend if you need your wedding or event he would be the one to consider
I hired Matt as the photographer for my parents' 50th anniversary. After looking at his website, reading the reviews here on yelp and him answering all of our endless questions and requests, we knew he was the one. He was friendly and very professional right from the beginning, which was months before the party. He kept in contact during the months leading which made me feel at ease.
On the day of the event, he got right to work. He worked efficiently and captured many memorable moments we will treasure forever.
Look at his website, text him, call him, you will not regret hiring this man. Thank you Matt, I will keep you as our photographer!
I agree with Tina R. Matt is A.MAA.ZING!
First, I found him randomly. His ad stood out because he was able to convey how much fun and passion he hopes to bring to his photo shoots.
And, "wow", did he deliver. He was quick to respond to my inquiry and continued to keep the lines of communication open, arrived early and had the email proofs ready the next day.......what??
Matt has a quiet confidence that allows him to ask a ton of unassuming questions bringing him closer to understanding your goal as a client. It is clear that he loves what he is doing and cares about creating your vision. He is quick to smile, share and most importantly, make you comfortable, (a very important quality for a photographer for those of us who are camera shy!)
We were married in Vegas 1 year prior, had 2 photographers and were unable to capture a shot that we could proudly display in our living room. For our anniversary, we decided to put the "glad rags" back on (tux and veil et all..) and try again. Now, thanks to Matt, we are going to have trouble deciding how many we can put on the wall ....and tastefully get away with!!!
Woohoo! As good as it gets!!
I also found him randomly online and I could not have been happier that I did. First of all, I looked endlessly for the perfect photographer. I wanted somebody who captured the perfect shots and who was also reasonably priced. The number of photographers in Las Vegas are endless and I could not have picked any better.
We communicated primarily through email and he was always prompt in answering any questions that I had. Matt always seemed very enthusiastic and confident of my ideas and wants, that really made me feel at ease.
My husband and I went on our honeymoon two days later and we where gone for one week. Well, when I returned I had an email from Matt telling me that the pictures where ready and he just needed to confirm my address. The turn around time is awesome!!!!! We could not wait to be back home so we could see all the pictures.
I also like the fact that Matt gives you all the pictures (and by that I mean like 500+ photos!) in a CD with full rights.
The quality of the pictures are also very good, all the pictures where clear and the colors turned out amazing. I also liked the fact that he would let everyone know how to pose because that helped avoid any awkward poses (especially me haha..).
Definitely recommend Matt to any bride or person who wants somebody who is reliable, hard working, and good at what he does.
Matt was absolutely wonderful!!! He controlled the environment and all you really had to do is relax and smile and he took care of the rest. Super professional and has a great eye and was Super aware of all lighting conditions. He's Super friendly but assertive..and we loved that about him. We are so happy with his services.. HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM
Knew all the best spots around town to get great pictures. Glad we chose him, it was definitely worth it.
Matt was my photographer for me and my fiancé's engagement photos. We never had professional photos taken before, and we were nervous of the outcome. However, Matt greatly surpassed our expectations and we managed to love every single picture taken of us! We are still stunned at the results. I can't thank him enough!
Search no further! Matt is your photographer!!
Whether you love being in front of the camera or rather run away from it - Matt Cali has the skill, the warmth, the knowledge, the experience, and just a special way of bringing out the best of you and your moments with his expert eye. He guided and directed me which helped me feel more confident, comfortable, and able to have some fun, and the photoshoot produced amazing shoots (that I didn't think were possible) - both for my professional work and fly options for reeling in some online dating (iffff I ever get around to that)! Whatever your photography needs, he's incredible to work with, so down to earth, and great with everyone from professionals (I saw him work with models), to children (I saw that too!), to goofballs like me!
You will not regret it! Amazing skills, great person! Have a great time!
Working with Matt was awesome. He directed me on our shoot and was very enthusiastic and fun to work with! I like being directed because sometimes the photographer has a great idea and Matt knew just how to set up the shot. He got the photos back to me in a timely manner and has also great editing skills. Everyone was extremely impressed by our shots and as a model/actor they've helped me get noticed by casting directors. Thank you!
Matt Cali is AMAZING!!! My fiancé and I used him for our engagement shoot and we absolutely love our photos. He was so easy to shoot with, he made me feel so comfortable and I feel like it really showed in our photos. He was also really easy to talk to and discuss our ideas with. Other photographers we talked too didn't want to take the time it seemed, but Matt was really interested in what I WANTED and he even looked through my entire Pinterest board with me!!!! We are definitely using him for our wedding photos and I highly highly highly recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional as well as a really nice guy to work with (Matt is the best of both worlds).
Matt has taken numerous photos for me and the business that I work at.
He is always super helpful and responds rapidly if you text/call him. Every time he's taken photos he's been able to send me photos the next day, and he takes the time to make sure you got what you wanted.
I would highly recommend him for personal photos, weddings, headshots, or whatever you might need.
I used Matt Cali for a photo shoot with my fiancé and he was awesome. He was very easy to book and reach as we planned the shoot.
He's a was very friendly and we were so happy with the photos!
We went up to a great location and he was very professional, and really helped us get the feel we wanted. He was also provided the photos without huge delay, which I liked a lot.
Matt Cali is extremely professional and an awesome photographer! From the first inquiry to the final photo shoot, Matt was nothing but professional and timely in returning our e-mails, phone calls, and even text messages. As out of state clients, for my company, that was an important detail. He is unique, as in, he really wanted to understand what concept /type of shoot we were looking for. He even took the time to listen to the musician's music he would be working with. Matt came up with plenty of location suggestions. What was even more exciting were the amazing shots with such a variety of different vibes for us to use in multiple types of promotion. If you are looking for a photographer who is professional, takes the time to get involved, understands your needs, has a great personality, wants you to feel like he is already part of your team, and captures the most unbelievable pictures, then I would highly recommend Matt Cali. I can't wait to work with him again.
I highly recommend Matt Cali for all your photography projects. I had him do some promotional photos of me for my job. He gets really involved with you when taking photos to get the perfect look. He makes you look and feel like a million bucks!
Great photos! Great experience! Prompt service! A first class pro in all regards! Will use Matt again for sure!
Matt and I have worked together on dozens and dozens of projects over the years. Me, as the graphic designer mastermind and Matt as the photographer wizard. When I lived in Las Vegas it got to the point that I pretty much refused any jobs unless he was the photographer. Haha. It's true, though. He's THAT good. Honestly, my working relationship with Matt was one of the most difficult parts about me moving away. But on the big projects I will be able to fly him out to wherever. He's totally worth it.
Matt was my photographer for my 40th birthday. He was very responsive from the moment I contacted him. He showed up on time, was extremely friendly and professional during my entire event. My guest were also extremely pleased with his friendly demeanor.
Matt provided my pictures the very next day and they came out fabulous. I only omitted, maybe two shots from the photo book I created. All of my memories were captured perfectly, my pictures came out wonderful. Thank you Matt!!
Matt Cali is absolutely brilliant! His eye for capturing the beauty, essence, and magnitude during a photo session is incredible. I'm a recording artist who has worked with several photographers in the past, but this one was hands down my favorite. The professionalism, the ideas, the dedication, and the final product is just jaw dropping. Matt made me feel comfortable and his personality was amazing. He brought out the best in me and really captured my essence. So easy to work with. If you want top notch quality, Matt Cali Photography is the way to go. I will be doing more work with him in the future.
Matt not only delivered impeccable photography at our event (the best we could have asked for!), he was also incredibly helpful and responsive. He's insanely flexible and an amazing communicator. I kept in touch with him remotely while he worked with my team in another state during a few-day event, and he sent me thorough recaps of his work each day. I was so impressed by his professionalism. We would use him again in a heartbeat.
We are from St. Louis and came out to Vegas to get Married. I came across Matt on my hunt for a photographer. I told him exactly what I wanted and that we wanted to keep it short so we could get to the fun. He did just that!! Running around Fremont Street taking pictures in the crowd was a blast. Everyone loves our pictures and he captured Us in them. They turned out amazing!! Thanks Matt!
Matt did the headshots for my modeling/acting portfolio and I was impressed with his artistic viewpoint. I would have never thought that shooting against an abandoned carwash would provide such striking contrast. It worked and hilarity ensued! He knew what was needed environmentally to bring out the most genuine and candid shots. From this experience my fiancee at the time and I trusted Matt to shoot our wedding. Now granted, there are a lot of gratuitous moments of cliche during any wedding and only a few shots are normally "frame-worthy". Matt was able to get more than a dozen perfectly timed shots that captured the one-time-only moments we trusted him with (I can only imagine how many hundreds of photos he took to get them!)
Furthermore, not everyone is photogenic. Let's be honest. Some people don't want their picture taken for a reason. That being said, Matt chose wisely when capturing the emotions of others and knew how to photograph them to look their best. It's interesting that while writing this review I see how technical photography is. As with any skilled profession, one must pay their dues and make some mistakes to learn from. Luckily I met Matt after he'd been a photographer for some time.
Thank you Matt!
Matt Cali Photography took some great headshots for me. What makes the experience so special is that he takes the time to get to know who you are, bringing out your true personality instead of just a generic smile. His approachable personality assured that my photo shoot was a blast, I had fun and felt comfortable, forgetting that I was actually working. His professionalism assured that i had quality photographs to choose from at the end of my session. I highly recommend using Matt Cali Photography for your next shoot, I know you love it.
Definitely one of the BEST! photographers here in the Nevada. Very professional and reasonable and his work is Amazing!!! Would recommend in a heartbeat.
Matt was our wedding photographer, and he did an amazing job! He is very professional, but also friendly and personable. He's also flexible and creative. I would recommend him highly.
Matt was the photographer of my wedding and he was incredible! Very pro, friendly and creative. I loved the photos he took of my wedding!!! He came in very short notice and did an amazing job!
Matt is a total pro. He has a great personality to go along with amazing skill behind a camera. He got us the photos extremely rapidly on top of it all. Definitely looking forward to working with him again.
Matt Cali shot my last headshots, and I loved them but more importantly, so did my agents! So I knew he'd take great engagement shots of me and my fiancée...which he did! We were both thrilled with the images and his service. Highly recommend him!
Amazing Amazing Amazing. Matt is not just a skilled photographer but a great person. We did "souvenir" Seattle Pikes Market family photos as well as head shots (since we are moving soon). He was SO professional, true to his word, on time, with constant communication. Considering we have 2 very small children I was so amazed with the pictures he was able to get! He was so nice with the kids and a true natural (my 2 year old even asks about him). I think anyone who wants a creative amazing photographer will NOT be let down. I actually signed up for Yelp just for this review! THANKS MATT!!!! You deserve great success!!
This is the kind of photographer you want taking photos of your family, kids, events, memories. I wouldn't trust anyone else in town. AMAZING WORK....
Matt Cali is AMAZING at what he does! I was recommended him by a former model friend of mine to try and squeeze in a photo-shoot before he went back to Las Vegas (he was in Los Angeles for a few days), and not only did we fit one into his busy schedule, but in the small time we had I was shocked at how fantastic the shots looked! At no point did I feel insecure about how I looked, my poses or if my hair/make-up/clothes were right for the photos. He collaborated with me perfectly and I was at complete ease to work with his directions! I cannot wait to work with him again and again!!! I recommend him thoroughly!! He's a pro!!!! :D
Matt worked my wedding party and did a great job capturing all the moments, guests and activities and in a short time period, as well! He was flexible and met all of our needs and requests and most important - took great pics!
I recently had a destination wedding in Las Vegas. I was looking for a reasonably priced photographer to take amazing photos of our special day at our wedding and in our wedding attire on the Las Vegas Strip. Matt responded immediately. His fee was very fair. I was very particular about what I wanted and Matt made sure he understood how I wanted the photos in advance of the photo shoot. He took photos one evening of me and the groom on the Las Vegas strip and then a couple days later at our wedding. All the photos came out beautiful and beyond what I expected. He is a perfectionist. Matt is always on time and extremely reliable. All my family and friends were blown away by the quality of the photos. The photos he took of us on the Las Vegas strip in our wedding attire were of high fashion magazine quality. And the photos at our wedding were more personal and equally as breath taking.
If you hire him for a photo shoot on the Las Vegas strip or for a wedding or special occasion. You will not be disappointed. The best photos ever taken. Five stars for this fabulous photographer. Thank you Matt!
Being a professional artist myself, I realize the value of a truly good photographer. I searched awhile before deciding on Matt to do my wedding photos after viewing his website and talking to him. He is definitely what all the reviews say about him--professional, friendly, hard working, and incredibly talented! He did everything we asked, made suggestions, and was always making sure we got exactly what we wanted. He did an amazing job working the crowd the entire wedding and reception! Everyone commented on how friendly he was and on his professionalism. He made sure there were great couple shots, family shots, but also lots of candid shots with friends. It made everyone feel like they were an integral part of the wedding! We were thrilled with the images which he promptly got to us! I highly recommend Matt if you are considering a photographer. I would definitely use him again!
My name is Marc Nelson, and I just did my first photo shoot with Matt Cali. He is AWESOME! Not only is he easy to work with, his work is amazing! I sing with Boyz II Men, and I've worked with many photographers in my career. Matt is hands down in the top three of my favorite photographers to work with. I intend on recommending him to all my friends in the entertainment world. Thanks Matt for a great headshot!
If you're looking for an amazing photography, stop searching because Matt Cali is the one!
We had sent out many quote requests during my search for a Photographer and Matt was the first to respond. We chatted on the phone and right away I sensed a great positive energy about him. We went through his portfolio online and after a few more conversations, we hired him.
Matt made me and my husband so relaxed and comfortable during our shoot. This was especially important because we did our photos before the ceremony. He had creative ideas on how I could surprise my groom when we saw each other for the first time. We were looking for some "non-traditional" wedding photos as well as black and white ones and Matt was able to capture everything we wanted. He captured photos from different angles and lighting and those candid photos of our all family and friends.
For my job, I coordinate lots of events and vendors and Matt Cali is truly the best I have worked with. He is professional, flexible, reliable, very reasonably priced and just an awesome guy! I highly recommend him!
My husband and I hired Matt for our desitnation wedding in Las Vegas in August '14 and Matt TOTALLY KILLED IT!! (in a good way of course!). When we decided on a destination wedding we knew only a handful of our closest family and freinds would be able to make it out out to Vegas for our wedding so in efforts to share as much of the day as possiable with all the people remaining at home we knew good photography was KEY! Trust me when I say I scowered Yelp! and did coutless google seaches to find the perfect person to shoot our wedding and spoke to photographers who seemed way over priced to others who seemed far to un-reliable to trust with capturing one of the most important days of our life. Then when I was just about to give up we found Matt Cali Photographary. Not only was his website perfessional and impressive and but his customer reviews were awesome and after our first over the phone conversation my mind was totally at ease. I never once doubted him! His communication through e-mail, text. and phone call was on point leading up to and after our wedding which always made Ken and I feel like our satisfaction was his #1 priority. He was very prompt, timley, and professonal on the day of our wedding and our friends and family absolutly adored him! I was so impressed with his "crowed control" skills to make sure we got some killer photo opps. in front of the Beligio fountains. He took every oppertunity to get some AMAZING photos and the finish product was absoultly stunning!! Ken and I are so happy with how all of our photos turned out by more importantly we are so greatful to Matt that he truly captured moments of our day to share with all of those who could not be there! Super quick photo turn around too!
Before I intially spoke to Matt I was reading his Yelp! reviews and came upon a review that was written by a mother who hired Matt to shoot her son's Vegas wedding. Of course she had nothing but positive things to say about him in her post but she also left her phone number to contact for any of those true sceptics. Me being the nevous bride I was, I called her up. We chatted for about 15 mins. about how great Matt did on shooting her son's wedding and how I would not regret hiring him and at the end of our conversation she said "Oh, and please tell Matt I said hello!". For some reason that really struck me; and it was not until our wedding day I realized myself that in the process of shooting your wedding he totally becomes part of the experience, like another friend their to enjoy your special day!
TRUST ME; I have been there and have been totally terrified to book a photographer I have never ment in a city I have never been to get married! It is a lot of trust to put into someone but let me tell you, you will not regret booking him and your photos will turn out amazing!
Matt was exceptional; very skilled & talented, top of the line equipment, and a really fun / nice guy in addition to that. I highly recommend. We liked his work so much we're flying him to Miami for another photo shoot of our product launch ( LaserLapel.com ).
I met Matt through a friend of mine, and had been wanting to get some good photos of myself and my boys.
Matt is a highly personable guy. Friendly. Professional.
He made recommendations for good places to get the type and style of photos that would fit what I was trying to achieve.
He showed up on time, directed the shoot efficiently, and it was fun and pleasant.
He delivered the photos on time and they were also flattering.
I really loved working with Matt. He has done pictures for my family, my mom's charity gigs and most recently, my wedding. He has a great vision and his joy and passion really come through during the shooting process. Edits were done and delivered quickly. Will definitely contract him again for a future shoot!
I found Matt on Craigslist, I spoke with him and he was able to work with my budget he sounded really good.. When it was time to put a deposit to reserve date I was a little weary because again I found him on Craigslist and in reality i knew nothing about him, besides what he was telling me.. I could've just been sending money to someone that was phony.. Well I'm happy to say that he was the real thing. Everyone really enjoyed his bright spirit and happy personality .. He did a real beautiful job.! I Would recommend matt..!!! he also worked well with chapel photographer and my videographer.. Thanks Matt for beautiful wedding pics.!!
A picture can say a 1000 words but only if you can feel the emotion in the picture. Matt was able to capture the emotion of my sons wedding day. We live outside of Chicago so i did not know who to contact. i told my son, i was going to go on Craig's list to search. My son comment, "good luck searching but don't get anybody on Craig's list. I'm so glad I didn't listen to Marty because i found Matt Cali. I enjoyed looking at his work and after talking to him, i knew he was the photographer to go with.
His level of service was outstanding, but his pictures capture the emotions and he made us just pop out in the pictures. He truly is an artist and a professional that made you feel comfortable. on a scale of 1-10 I give him a 10. Considering i don't write reviews I would like everybody to know they found a great photographer to capture their moments. please feel free to contact me at 773-224-3000 and ask for Laverne.
I found Matt on Craigslist and from our very first correspondence by email and phone I knew he was the photographer for us. He came across as very cool, easy and enthusiastic. Then he had some great ideas for our pictures, too. He suggested photos at night since Vegas is all about the neon and we immediately loved the idea.
I paid half the the total fee as a deposit first via email transfer and the rest in cash after the shoot. And it was a great shoot.
We wanted something a little different and off the strip. We shot, beginning just before sunset in the Fremont, "old school" area of Vegas. We shot in a few different locations as the sun went down and got lots of amazing shots into the night. Our favourite ones turned out to the be the ones of us running through the crowd, Matting running backwards to get the shot. In them we look like movie stars fleeing the paparazzi. Very fun, and original and not your typical wedding pictures -- which is exactly what we wanted.
Matt was very easy and fun to work with. He was on time (we were not). He had a simple, very mobile but effective set up of camera (of, course) and a light. From this we got great, very professional pictures. He gave us a copy of all the pictures he took on CD two days after the shoot and also a second CD with touched-up, black and white and other fancy-affect photos.
The whole thing went off without a hitch, the shoot was fun and we wouldn't mind taking Matt out for a drink if ever he is in Montreal.
My company recently hired Matt to complete photography work for a corporate event at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The initial contact was prompt, he asked all the right questions about how we'd like the event shot, and was very thorough with follow up.
Overall, Matt greatly exceeded our expectations; very professional and timely, and delivered great results!
I would absolutely recommend Matt for anyone looking for an event photographer.
I spent quite some time researching for a photographer for my wedding in Las Vegas, NV. Matt Cali's ad on Craigslist caught my eye for many reasons. I sent out several requests to photographers in the area, including Matt. Not only did Matt reply to my e-mail within minutes, but he also called me a couple of days after to follow up. This immediately separated him from the rest of the photographers, as it was like pulling teeth to get the information I needed from anyone else. Matt did a fantastic job at my wedding. He went above and beyond what he needed to do and provided us with fantastic pictures of our memories. His professionalism is top-notch and his skill is equally impressive. My photographs were both classic and unique, and made many of my friends jealous that I was able to find such an amazing photographer. You can tell that he loves what he does, and that love is reflected in the results of his work. I highly recommend him for any occasion.
I am very impressed with Matt Cali Photography! It wasn't hard to get a hold of him, he was very prompt with replying to my emails and kept in touch often with updates. he was able to work around my busy schedule, (which was much appreciated) and we were working together in no time!
The photo session itself was great. It was very relaxed and fun. I'm always a little nervous getting my picture taken, but Matt made it easy for me to enjoy myself and loosen up. He was very easily able to capture the vision I had for my head shots and then some!
I had proofs in a few days and the final product in another. Which was great, since I've sometimes had to wait almost a month in the past with others. These are easily the best pictures of myself that I've ever seen, and I don't say that lightly.
I had actor's head shots done this time, but I'm definitely coming to him for whatever photography needs I have in the future! For sure!
P.S.- my profile picture up there ^^^ is his work!
My husband and I were visiting family in the Las Vegas area and wanted to take advantage of the nice weather with a baby bump photo session (I'm 6 months along). I researched photographers online and choose Matt because I loved the work on his website and found his wording and presentation to be very professional yet fun.
Because my husband and I are not familiar with the area Matt suggested a location based on my specification. When we met him for the first time he went over what we would be doing that day (which my husband and I appreciated), he shared the spots we would be shooting and even specifics on exact shots he wanted to get. I also brought a few pinterest pics for inspiraion and he combined my inspiration pics and his knowledge for a fabulous afternoon of photography.
From our first conversation via email to our good bye's he was extremely easy to work, professional, engaging and very organized. Honestly both my husband and I felt like we could of known him our whole lives he was that easy to be with.His nature is warm and inviting and makes you feel totally comfortable.
He was prompt with his follow up pictures (he adhered to his follow up timeline). We are extremely pleased to of found him and worked with him. We only wish he lived closer to us in Portland for future baby pictures!!!!
my first Yelp review... here goes... I was put in charge of finding the photographer for our "Forty Something" family reunion in Vegas this past Memorial Day weekend. I searched Google, Bing and yes, Craiglist. Interviewed three photographers. Met Matt on Craigslist and let me tell you, I and all of my family were totally happy and surprised. We just got our pics today and we cracked up! We got candids, portraits, and everything. He's awesome, and we LOVE the photos. Matt rocks and he's so got it. He will not be available to the general public for long. If you can book him, do it. His pricing was not the bottom, nor the top. Worth every penny! But Matt, where's the butt?! You really do have talent... with all my thanks... Karen
I saw Matt in action when he shot one of my events. He had a ton of energy and was the most professional and courteous person in the room. He got a ton of great shots and was tireless in making sure my needs were met.
His hard work and friendly demeanor made the event memorable and I'll rarely recommend someone as highly as I recommend him.
I had a wonderful experience with Matt Cali Photography! He was early to every location for my wedding on 2/24/12. He was very helpful about giving ideas about our poses for the pictures. I would recommend him to anyone. He is also reasonably price and a whole lot of fun. Also he was quick to get our pictures back to us. As any bride knows that the waiting game to be able to get them (so you can post them on Facebook) is not very fun.Plus he very personable, memorized everyone's name as if he had been with the family for a long time. He is great!!
Matt is A.MAZ.ING!
For our Feb 2012 wedding it was really important to us that we didn't just get some "wedding photographer". We wanted an artist. Someone that was as excited as we were to be doing this project. After months of planning, I wanted the photos to show how much work we put into it, and did Matt pull through!
From our first meeting I knew he was our guy. He understood what we wanted and gave great suggestions. The days leading up to the wedding he would check in to make sure we were still on schedule and if there was anything he could do to help - wow.
The day of the wedding, has was only suppose to be our reception photographer but we had him show up to the chapel to get some exra pics as the chapel package came with a photographer. Thank goodness for Matt! He took better photos then the crappy photographer that came with the chapel package (*ahem* Viva Las Vegas Weddings).
At the reception, Matt was like a ninja! He did everything possible to get the right shot - from standing on chairs to get the whole group to jumping over couches to catch a cute moment with the kids. Everyone loved him! When we talk about the wedding, his name always comes up.
His prices are more than fair and the turnaround on the pictures was very quick! I couldn't have been more pleased.
Matt is very professional, quick, and personable.
He went above and beyond what we asked for at two different locations. He is flexible and he certainly knows his stuff.
I would recommend him to all my family and friends. I found him on craigslist and was a little nervous, but he fulfilled his contract in every way.
I would use him again.
