Goldi - 2024 Senior

“My senior photo session with Matthew from start to finish was incredible. He helped me feel more comfortable and confident with posing ideas and hyping me up to get the best end result. Not only does his professionalism shine, but also his kind personality the whole time. The outfits and locations we found were perfect, making me fall in love with my pictures!”

Katie - 2024 Senior

“I had never had professional pictures taken before and was so nervous, but Matthew made the whole process effortless and comfortable by guiding me through poses and choosing stunning locations. He did an amazing job incorporating my best features, outfits, and locations to produce amazing photos. This experience was such a boost of confidence and I’ve gotten so many compliments and questions where I got my photos done. I cannot recommend Matthew enough; he has so much talent!”

Jaydi - 2023 Senior

“Working with matthew genuinely has opened a whole new world for me. When I started working with him I didn’t have much self confidence and was insecure about being in front of a camera but he changed the whole game. He has made all of my shoots comfortable and fun by coming prepared with poses, locations etc. On top of the amazing work I have been able to do with him, I have been able to create a long term friendship and bond that I will cherish forever.”

Reegan - 2023 Senior

"After working with him to plan my pictures, I knew I made the right choice! I had a vision, and he went above and beyond to bring it to life. Everything from outfits, location, posing, and additional planning was beyond easy with his help and organization. I was nervous to be in front of the camera, but Matthew’s skills, kindness, and positive, uplifting attitude, made it a breeze.”

Riley - 2023 Senior

“I booked Matthew for my senior pictures this past year, and I can not put into words how OBSESSED I was with my pictures!! Not only were the pictures amazing, but so was the whole experience! There was not a moment of awkwardness, and I’ve never felt so confident! I chose Matthew because of his creative work, and amazing skills! I highly recommend booking Matthew for any of your picture needs!!!"
