I believe I’m here to carve my own path and show others that they can too. I’m here to make people feel seen, loved, and cared for.

I fell in love with the art of photography when I started photographing the human experience. People in their spaces, people enjoying human connections with others, people sharing their songs and stories.

Photographing people in their form led me to photographing weddings. To me, weddings are a special event of celebration, love, happy people, and a day filled with so much joy with everyone that you care about most. Much like the way that history and stories were passed down through generations, there is so much to be shared and passed down through photographs so that the memory can live on forever. 

The feeling of being invited into the most intimate day of a human’s life is an honor and something I feel so incredibly grateful for. My approach to a wedding day is simple, quiet, and intentional. Your wedding day is about you and the connection to the loved ones around you. It shouldn’t feel like an all day photoshoot moving around from one place to another. It should be fluid and organic. The photos captured are always intended with an honest and artful approach. This is my humble gift to you.

Us. Matt & Briana.

We run this photography business together and have so much fun being storytellers. We believe that love is one of the most incredible emotions we experience as humans. Love is a force of nature and entirely unique. As artists, we want to tell your stories with our photographs. We have passion for creating honest images that are inspired by the spirit of our subjects. We want to make something for you that can bring back a memory or a feeling.

Together, we love to chase light, climb mountains, jump waterfalls, and hang in a hammock all day. We enjoy the last few minutes of light just before the sun goes down and the earth is still glowing. We share a great appreciation for our beautiful planet and devote our lives to exploring and taking care of it as much as we can in this lifetime.

We proudly serve everyone in love. We do not discriminate against race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, nationality, religion, cultures, gender identity, and expression.

We are committed to welcoming all people into our lives and into our art. We want to serve you.

Matt.

Ever since I was a young child I have been fascinated by photography. I got my first camera as a prize for selling popcorn as a Cub Scout.

My affinity for the camera has always followed me through all of the different stages of my life: from Scouts to yearbook in high school, taking photos of food in my culinary career, all the way to taking photos in my travels and as an adventure guide. It has always been with me. However, through all of that, it had never occurred to me to take photos professionally or as a career. That all changed when I met Briana. She convinced me to try my hand at professional photography and my love for the art has only grown. 

I still continue to photograph landscapes, food, or things I find beautiful or interesting, but now I also get to document love that is shared between humans. I get to document the laughter of a joke shared between siblings. I get to view one of the most important days in the lives of two people who love each other more than anything, all through the lens of my camera. All of these things inspire me as much as photographing sunsets behind mountains or a sunrise over the sea or an interesting person I just met on a lonely city street. Photographs are a split second of captured light—a moment frozen in time that has never happened before and will never happen exactly the same ever again. There is power in that and it is my wish to harness that power and use it to make people happy.
