Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers | Matthew Blassey

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.

“Matthew was by far one of the best decisions my wife and I made for our Pittsburgh 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 wedding photographer, and what we got was top notch.”

“We are so happy we chose Matthew as our Pittsburgh wedding photographer! He is professional and responsive and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. He helped us plan our timeline, showed up early on the day of, and kept things moving throughout the day. We were very adamant on wanting to get some photos out of the way before the ceremony and he went around to find the right lighting and made it happen for us! Even our videographer commented on how good his attention to detail was, so we know we picked a good one. The photos turned out beautifully and we cannot recommend Matthew enough!.”

Kaitlyn + John


My husband and I used Matthew as our Pittsburgh photographer for our wedding in October 2022 and he was WONDERFUL! We really wanted someone who would be able to capture our entire day while keeping us calm and relaxed and Matthew was exactly that. He was very well organized, kept constant communication leading up to the day and made sure he captured everything we asked for and then some. We couldn't be more pleased and happy with how our pictures turned out! He also did our engagement photos and they were beautiful. We would highly recommended Matthew to capture your perfect day!!
