Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer

Welcome and thank you for taking the time to view my wedding photography! My name is Matthew, and I am a wedding and engagement photographer based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

 

As you're learning through your search, your wedding photographer will play an integral role in how your wedding day will be remembered. The wedding photographs you invest in are going to be one of the most tangible & treasured keepsakes you'll preserve from your wedding day. Entrusting a wedding photographer to capture your wedding day story in its entirety is one of the most important planning decisions you’ll make. In my near decade as a Pittsburgh wedding photographer, I've crafted a wedding photography style that's both elegant and timeless, with a sharp, creative eye for genuine moments and vibrant expression. I have a real dedication to each & every one of my wedding couples, and I consider it a real honor to photograph each & every wedding day.

About Me

My passion for photography began in my early twenties in college, and I haven't stopped shooting since. After earning my BFA in Photography from West Virginia University, my adventures led me down a path of studying lighting & composition with some of the best professional photographers in Pittsburgh. What continues to inspire me is the ability to capture people’s stories in a creative & genuine way, while getting to know them in the process. Capturing emotions and honest expressions are what fuels my creative soul. I take absolute pride in creating photographs that couples can connect with. My wedding photography is an intuitive fusion of photojournalism & creative portraiture. My focus has always been creating images that have a natural, elegant and editorial style while paying careful attention to lighting and decisive moments. A specialty I’ve worked hard to craft over the years in my wedding photography is taking a casual & calm approach in getting a bride & groom to open up and relax In front of my camera; avoiding anything that feels awkward & posed while coaching them through the picture taking process to look their absolute best.

 

Outside of photography, my wife & I are a dynamic team of raising 3 young redheads within the South Hills of Pittsburgh. I love catching up with old friends, yoga+exercise, date nights with my wife & of course my Netflix shows. When the kiddos get older, I can't wait to do more traveling with them & my camera. Exploring new places & meeting new faces continues to be a personal passion of mine.

 

Please feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear about the vision of your wedding day, as I think good things always come from open collaboration and exploring new perspectives.

My Approach to Wedding Photography

When getting to know the couple's I'm working with, I feel it's an essential first step to take time to understand the vision of their wedding day. Throughout our planning process together, I strongly encourage open collaboration with logistics, locations & schedules so that my photography can seamlessly integrate into your wedding day. Time management throughout a fast-paced wedding day is one of my specialties, and I am happy to assist with keeping you on-point to ensure that all aspects of the wedding day photography process are met with success.

Stylistic Wedding Photography With A Personal Approach

My storytelling style of wedding photography is a fusion of photojournalism and creative portraiture; with a special emphasis on not only capturing the natural you but also the authentic personalities of the people around you. In addition to style, personality is essential! Making sure you find a compatible photographer that you can gel with is crucial to achieving an overall positive wedding day experience. Feeling open & comfortable in the presence of a photographer that’s documenting you will yield amazing photographs. A skill set I’ve crafted throughout my career is my casual calm approach when coaching a bride & groom to feel relaxed In front of my camera. On your wedding day the last thing you want to feel is rushed, stiff or uncomfortably posed. I intend to be with you throughout every step of your day, photographing in such calm and non-obstructive way that it will feel like a friend taking your pictures. Capturing natural emotions and honest expressions have always been my focus. My goal on your wedding day is to make you feel as comfortable as possible in eliminating any sense of anxiety or jitters you may have in front of a camera.

“Matthew was by far one of the best decisions my wife and I made with our wedding. Our pictures turned out beautifully, he was very flexible, fun and easy going. It was an absolute pleasure with all of the chaos that he was so calm. He gave us plenty of direction but also took our suggestions and what we wanted into account without any question. It was very important to us that we had a great photographer, and what we got was top notch.”
