Wedding Photography Reviews | Pittsburgh Wedding Photography



“Working with Matt on our wedding day was a true gift. We had been planning our wedding from Tennessee and Matt made us feel comfortable knowing that our special day was to be captured through his creative eye. Matt had done weddings before at Destiny Hill Farm and knew where all the good shots would be. He gave us the opportunity to tell him our vision of the day and he was more than happy to make that happen. His great personality and sense of humor mitigated the edge of nervousness before the ceremony while getting the exact shots we wanted. Matt truly captured the essence, excitement, and love that emanated from our friends and family through his photographs of our wedding day.”

“I am so happy we worked with Matt as our wedding photographer! Matt is talented, professional, and has a great vision with his photography that he personalizes for each client. He stayed in touch with us leading up to the wedding and really took the time to understand what meant most to us for our big day. When the day came, Matt had created a plan for the shots that would capture our event in the perfect way for us and our personalities, and he went to work making sure we got everything we wanted and more.

Now, whenever I see people, the first thing they say is how gorgeous my wedding photos were! People are impressed with how Matt photographed the people, the settings, and the special moments. Everyone wants to know who did our photography. I’m happy to tell them it was Matt, and I highly recommend him for all special events and moments that you want to cherish. “

“Matthew was an amazing photographer for our wedding and I have many great things to say. If you’re looking for a photographer, look no further. Matt is your guy. Here’s why: His customer service is great. He learns about you, your wedding, your venue and the things that make your life unique. He incorporates that into the photos and he pays attention to every detail. His skills are above and beyond. Not only does Matt know how to take great photos, he knows how to refine them in his post-production work. From picking locations, to directing and making the pictures available after the wedding, he has his system designed to make you look amazing. I’m glad we hired Matt for our wedding. I have nothing negative about the experience. It exceeded our expectations and he comes with our highest regard!”

“My experience with Matt for my wedding day photography was above and beyond my expectations. Matt was extremely calm and laid back which helped to ease to anxiousness of the day. He catered to all of my requests and he never made me feel that I was rushing him or inconveniencing him or that he was bothered in any way. Overall, Matt was professional, punctual, and accommodating. I couldn’t be more happy with the end result of my photos and am so grateful that Matt could capture the special moments of the day. I found Matt based on a recommendation from a friend and I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone else. If I ever need professional photos in the future, Matt will certainly be my first choice.”

“We had such a great experience using Matt Blassey as our wedding photographer. On a day that was very hectic, Matt was a calm presence throughout. He knew the right moments to ask for our time and knew the exact spots to grab us for pictures that would make beautiful, lasting photos. He was flexible when people would grab him to take some pictures, yet also knew when to get people together and put them in position for a funny or heart warming picture that he knew would be appreciated when the party was long over. Matt was excellent with his communication leading up to the event and would share ideas about what he thought we might like. His price was beyond reasonable and the product he delivered after all the celebrating was over and all the people were gone was beyond words. When we sat down and looked at the picture he took, we were both blown away by how many great pictures we had of one of the best nights of our lives. We did not even notice him taking pictures that night, yet the pictures he was able to get will make us laugh and fill us with happiness for the rest of our lives. I cannot recommend Matt enough, he is not only a true professional, but he is an Artist of the highest degree. If there is one thing you can do to make your life easier, call Matthew Blassey Photography the next time you are looking for a photographer. I can promise you that you will not be sorry. Thank you so much Matt for your artistic vision and your overall demeanor, you went a long way towards making our big day a great one!”

Matt was our Photographer for our May 6th wedding. I would highly recommend his photography services and can vouch for his professionalism. He was responsive throughout the wedding planning process. Was easy to work with. Followed up and followed through. On the day of the wedding he was a calm presence that knew exactly what lighting and what arrangements would produce the best photos. He captured stunning portraits as well as endearing candid shots. I was also surprised that he even caught the funny moments of my wacky family and friends! He finished editing the photos within the time frame he anticipated and sent them with very professional materials. Myself and my husband were extremely impressed with the finished product as well as our interactions with Matt and we would refer him to all of our friends/family!

“Matt was our photographer from our wedding in June 2017. We were very satisfied and pleased with his service. Matt was very professional and extremely knowledgable about capturing the perfect pictures. He worked with us every step of the way. He listened and understood exactly what we wanted. He captured all the photos the way we wanted to. We are so grateful to have all the photos that we do. Absolutely wonderful!”

“Matt was amazing to work with from beginning to end. I wasn’t sure what I wanted for our engagement session so I sent him several pictures of others who got them done in the same place. He blew me away with capturing literally every shot I sent him! So by the time we got to our June Wedding, I had very little time to be as detailed with requests. We got our wedding pictures back quick and I LOVED them. Matt got shots that I had mentioned previously I really wanted and totally forgot about. He was great to work with during the whole process. There was a ring shot we missed that I really wanted and he offered to stop by to reinact. He really went above and beyond to make me happy even after my wedding!! Currently in the process of ordering our wedding book with him and so far it looks amazing! I just can’t say even good things about Matthew Blassey Photography!!”

“Working with Matthew was a wonderful experience from our very first meeting. He really took his time to get to know us and what we wanted for both our engagement and our wedding photos. He was accessible, knowledgeable, helpful, and very talented. Prior to the wedding day, Matthew spent time with us to scout out spots for our mid-day photos and talk about what kind of shots we wanted. On our wedding day Matthew managed to capture dozens of candid shots, without being an intrusive presence. I never felt like I had a camera in my face, but all of our special moments were captured perfectly. Matthew is such a calming presence also, which is exactly what a bride needs on her wedding day! I would highly recommend working with Matthew.”

“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.”

– Nikki & Dominic | Wedding Day at Duquesne Chapel – Pittsburgh, PA

“We had Matt for our wedding on 9-23-16 as our photographer. After speaking with him on the phone as our first and only photographer we called, we knew based on recommendations that he was perfect. He walked us through the whole process from start to finish. Spoke with us numerous times to get our vision and our plans for our pictures. Come our wedding day we spoke with Matt when we arrived at the venue, he was already there for a few hours getting a feel for the layout and the lighting. He had planned shots for us based on previous pictures we sent him of the venue before. He did an amazing job. The day went perfect. He took over 1200 pictures and we didn’t even notice him half the time which is wonderful. He never got in the way of our day. The pictures turned out better than we could imagine and the album we ordered from him turned out great. We wouldn’t have picked any other photographer or personality to be part of our special day after speaking with him once or meeting him.”

“Hi Matthew, We wanted to thank you for being such a big part of our wedding day – our photos look absolutely fantastic! We love looking at them and know we will far into the future. We deeply appreciate your quiet, laidback style and will gladly recommend you to others!”
