FAQs

What’s it going to be like to have Matt shoot your wedding day?

The beauty of the photos always lies within the experience. I want you to have a great time, to be at ease, to be yourself and to have fun! We’ll come up with many different trendy poses during the day, especially just between the bride and groom, but otherwise I’ll be using a journalistic approach. I like to stay behind the scenes and find those special unique moments that would otherwise escape you in the wonderfully frenetic pace of a wedding day.

Will you travel?

Of course! And, you won’t even have to twist my arm to do such a thing. I’m based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and for clients in the area I charge 40 cents a mile after 50 miles of driving. For clients further away, please inquire for a detailed quote.

What should I wear to my photo shoot? 

Solid colors usually work best against all sorts of backgrounds. Ladies, accessorize! Generally, avoid clothes with graphics on them and don’t feel the need to match each other exactly, just blend together in complementary colors.

Can I bring props to my shoot?

Absolutely! I want the final photos to be as memorable as possible, so adding elements that have special significance to you is great. For seniors, bring your favorite hobby like a musical instrument, sport equipment or a stack of books. For engaged couples, maybe bring memories of your relationship, bikes you ride together, favorite books or matching cowboy boots. If you need help, brainstorming, I’m always hear to offer suggestions and can offer other prop options.

Can we print our own photos?

Yes, you have full rights to print all of your photos. If you’d like to use me for a couple special prints, I offer prints in several different packages and can do a la carte special orders as well.

How long until I have all of my photos?

For all 2-3 photo sessions, I have all the edited images to you in 3-4 weeks. For weddings, I have the photos in your hands in 4-6 weeks. I also post photos to social media and to my website as I edit.

Who is the photographer?

That’d be me, Matt. I shoot every assignment myself, so you know you’ll get all of my experience and expertise.

Does Matt really know what he’s doing with a camera?

Yes I do! I graduated with a bachelor’s in photojournalism and worked as a newspaper photographer for five years before transitioning to portrait photography. I’m always studying the latest trends, pushing my own style and ability and working hard to make sure that you have beautiful gorgeous photos that you want to show all of your family and friends.

Speaking of family and friends, can and how do I show all of them the photos?

I post the photos to my website with a password, so feel free to share the link and password with everyone you’d like. I also post my favorites to social media, so please find me and follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. Once you have the photos, post as many as you’d like.

How do I book a photo session/wedding?

You can contact me for a obligation free photography information session and once you’re ready you can secure a shoot date with a $50 non-refundable deposit for non-weddings and a $300 non-refundable deposit for your wedding date.
