What They Have Said

Margaret T.

"Matt offers a comfortable portrait session with relaxed conversation to photograph you as yourself rather than you in your most awkward pose. His photographs are well-lit and well-composed. You'll have a range of images from which to choose - head shots, speaking 'action' shots, and more. His turn around time is quick and you'll have a good time too."

Alok S.

"Matt did a great job, and I saw for the first time that you can talk and get great pictures. I also got what is maybe the only picture of my Duchenne smile (the genuine smile)."

Jo L.

"As a portrait photographer, Matt strikes the perfect balance between flexible and professional. While he was willing to accommodate all of my random requests, he also made sure to capture the formal/traditional poses and backgrounds. Post-session, I received a lot of follow-up regarding the proofs and photo-editing."


Keith W.

"Matt really likes to get the person relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera; he asks (in a respectful and non-intrusive way) about life goals, passions, dreams. This process, I believe, made the experience and the portraits more intimate and personal -- which is great if you want your pictures to capture the real you!"
