I’m Mat

I know how hard it is to plan a wedding, because 5 short years ago, my wife Jenny and I were busy planning and counting down the days until our own wedding day. We were married in an old firehouse on the North Side of Chicago, the city where she and I first met.

Jenny and I wanted to plan a wedding as memorable and unique as we are. We needed the real deal. A day (and a photographer) that captured all our quirks—from how much my wife loves Beyoncé to how much our friends and family love the dance floor.

I know you can’t control the things like how many times your parents will burst into tears on your wedding day (Spoiler alert: it’s a lot). But there’s one thing you can control—making sure you have the right team to help make everything else comfortable and stress-free.

I’m here to be your teammate.

I'm in my fourth year as a full-time Colorado wedding photographer. Between that and planning my own wedding I learned a key lesson:

Each and every piece of your wedding is important, but the perfect images let you take your big day home and relive it again and again. They’re something to show your future kids and grandkids: This is a family that started with two soulmates and a *whole lot of magic.*

Let me capture those irreplaceable moments that bring that magic to life. No fake laughing photos you could find as a placeholder in a Target picture frame. I'll capture your beautiful love just as you are, and send you home with the the most meaningful heirloom I could ever hope to give you—

An incredible record of the absolute best day of your lives.


My background in creative direction is what led me to my career in photography. For 10 years before I started as a wedding photographer full time, I was strategizing on brand and website direction with large, national nonprofit campaigns and startup companies.

I may be a Colorado wedding photographer, but my roots are in the Midwest. (I grew up in rural Indiana, went to college at Purdue University, and lived in Chicago for 8 years.) After my lovely wife Jenny and I met and got married in Chicago we moved to Denver, where we've been ever since!

When I'm not working, you can probably find me tending to my rare houseplant collection, watching Purdue basketball, or finding a new Colorado trail to hike.

My little family, which includes my wife Jenny, our daughter, Lucy, and silly puppy Daisy have loved turning Denver into our home.

These Are the

Moments You'll Relive Over & Over Again

You deserve the absolute best for your wedding photography. That's why I invest my whole heart in each of my couples, getting to know you and your values long before the big day so I can reflect the authenticity of your love in your images.
