Proof this works!

We had our engagement session with him and from the second we met we knew we made the right decision. He has been amazing to work with, flexible & accommodating and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We are truly in awe the way the pictures came out. We couldn't be happier! Cannot wait for him to shoot our big day!

Matthew was fantastic to work with for our engagement photos! Both of us are nervous in front of the camera but he helped us feel very comfortable and we had a blast. The photos turned out gorgeous and we have a great amount to choose from for save the dates. I can't wait to work with him on our wedding day!

Hi! I'm Matthew

I am an adventurous wedding photographer based in beautiful Garrison, NY. I live ten minutes from one of the most beautiful places in the northeast, the aptly named "World's End" section of the Hudson River.


My appreciation for landscape and nature carries over to my photography, which highlights scene and tells intimate stories through a couple's interactions. I have been doing this for over 8 years and loved every minute of each unique story that I have been honored to document.


When I am not photographing couples I am a middle school teacher (aka planner and motivator). In any spare time I can find, I am traveling, hiking, running, brewing beer, or walking my dog Toby with my wife Adriana.
