The Wedding Experience

For brides who want to remember the beautiful real moments.

PHILOSOPHY

Some people think I’m a little crazy to give up all my weekends photographing weddings. The truth is I am a little crazy, but I consider myself lucky to spend my weekends with people who are crazy for each other, madly in love, and making a beautiful promise to each other. It is likely I’ll be caught tearing up while he’s looking at you walk down the aisle. I’ll be laughing while your best man is roasting you (in love of course). I’ll be feeling the feels. I know that times like those are the ones we all live for.

The reason brides hire me is because I can put myself into their world. I become more than just another wedding vendor. I become a friend. I put myself in their shoes, and I tune in to their world. I create images that I would want. The images that help me remember what it felt like.

I believe those moments should be relived. I believe that they matter and are so worth remembering.

My Dream Clients:

Your love for the people in your life is deep and fierce. Experiences are so much more important than things. You’re totally ok staying up late on weeknights just to spend more time together. You want to impress your fiance, but know that he also loves the side of you that likes to binge Netflix in sweatpants and eat all the carbs. You work your ass off, but know how to party. You tell your friends that they can call you anytime if they need you, and you mean it. You value your family, and want the people in your life to always feel welcome around you.

Is that you? I can’t wait to meet you.

Why choose me?

I’ve photographed over 200 weddings, and worked with hundreds of couples. I specializes in story driven wedding photography that truly captures your day, and allows you to remember what your day was like. Every MJ&Co. bride gets three essential pieces that really delivers a world class experience.

 

Engagement Session Included

For a lot of my clients, this is the first time investing into photography of their life. The first time I take your picture shouldn’t be on your wedding day. That is why engagement sessions are included for all my brides. An engagement session is a perfect way to get comfortable in front of the camera. It’s actually a lot of fun, and in the hustle and bustle of planning a wedding, my clients always tell me it has them even excited for their wedding day.

 

Don’t miss a moment!

From the beginning my approach has been to create a collection of photographs that help couples remember their day. To do this, I actually don’t shoot alone on your wedding day. MJ&Co. brides get two professional photographers on their day. If you’re like me and love incredible candid moments, this is a must!

 

Stop waiting!

You just got married, you’re on your honeymoon, and you are sitting on a beach drinking an ice cold strawberry dacari sitting beside your new husband. You pull your phone out to take a picture, and notice an e-mail from me. You open up the e-mail. The subject line reads “Your wedding gallery”. WHAT? Your big day was the best day of your life, and you’re still on cloud nine. Without rushing, we actually have your wedding delivered two weeks after your wedding day!

 

Photo & Film

The PERFECT addition to your photographs is a beautiful wedding highlight film that gives you all the feels. Available only as an ad-on to MJ&Co. wedding photography brides.

We also include a hybrid video of your engagement session when adding a wedding day highlight reel, just to add in a bit more spice. 

 

We don’t have words to thank you for capturing our day perfectly!

Matt was awesome to work with, and I tell everyone I know to book with him! He photographed our engagement photos and wedding photos, and the first time we met I instantly felt a level of comfort and friendship with him. He made taking photos so fun and easy! After our engagement photos I was extra excited for wedding photos because I knew having Matt there that day would make photos easy and a fun experience for everyone. Plus at the end you get amazing, professional photos (and videos!) that you’ll want to display forever. I don’t have enough good things to say about Matt. He’ll be my go-to photographer forever!

We met Matt before our wedding in 2015. Instantly we connected with his very comfortable and easy going yet professional personality, which was so important for us when choosing someone to capture some of our most intimate family moments. We didn’t want “posed” photos, rather someone with the gift of finding those beautiful “tidbits” that otherwise are lost if you are blind to them. Matt captured our wedding photos in real “live” moments – the ones you think back on in reflection of special days and wish you’d captured – he did that and so much more. We were so impressed with our photos that we asked him to follow us through our family chapters (lake life, kids, fall family, Christmas tree hunting… and continued). Matt was different from anyone we’d had photos with as we grew a relationship with him (completely unexpected). He’s surprised us with 2 videos (ones we didn’t even know he was taking while out with him). We are so grateful for these as they are incredible keepsakes. Matt truly pulls the beautiful details out of a comfortable and relaxed meeting – like you’re simply getting a visit in with a friend however he’s creating his masterpiece behind the lens and you don’t even know it. We highly recommend MJ&Co not only for weddings and special occasions, for the simpler moments too. We are forever grateful to have found him to archive these memories for us. You won’t be sorry for booking with him, one of the best photographers we know!!
