ALL I CAN SAY IS PERFECT!
We came across Matt at a Bridal Show at our Reception hall- We took a look at his photos and liked what we saw, and thought he seemed extremely nice and professional. We made an appt with him, and we knew he was perfect for our wedding. We set up an engagement photo shoot with him in the fall before our wedding- He spent over an hour with us, taking such beautiful pictures. He was personable, funny and made us feel so comfortable! After we saw the results, we couldn’t wait for our wedding.
Matt showed up at my parent’s house early- His wife went to the hotel to take photos of my husband and the groomsmen. Matt was so nice, and everyone felt comfortable around him. He took some great photos of me getting ready. We then headed into Clinton where we took SOO many beautiful shots- The photos came out great. Matt spent the whole day with us ( approx 12 hours).
People actually tell me that the photos look like they came right out of a bridal magazine. We couldn’t have been MORE pleased with the outcome.
We will be using matt for any future photography that we will need, and I would truly recommend him to anyone.

What a pleasure it has been working with Matthew Douglas Photography! From the moment we met Matt we knew that he would be a perfect fit for our wedding. Matt and his wife worked as an excellent team and truly captured our wedding day in ways we did not even know was possible! It was comforting to work with someone who was so familiar with not only our reception location but also the surrounding area. He knew all of the perfect spots for pictures and made sure that everything happened on time, which can be a challenge with such a large bridal party! Matt made us feel at ease throughout the planning process and in front of the camera, during our engagement photos and on our big day. His creative and unique approach to photography, and his flexibility and professionalism are just a few of the many reasons that we are grateful for Matt and his work. We highly recommend Matthew Douglas Photography!!! Thank you, Matt!!!!

Matthew Douglas Photography’s team – Matt and his wife Kerry– captured all the amazing moments from our wedding day. They were very professional, but also very fun to work They made sure we got, as Matt put it, “Mom will kill me if I don’t take these” pictures, but they also got a lot of pictures just documenting us being ourselves, with our bridal party, just a short while after the wedding. They really captured the joy in the moment. They knew we had a lot of pictures we wanted to get in at different locations , and Matt kept us organized and knew exactly what shots he wanted to set up. This made things easy for us and kept us moving along. Their photography at the wedding was equally impressive. We have sometimes commented on weddings we have been to that the photographer or videographer can at times be intrusive in trying to get those perfect shots, which sometimes disrupts a great moment. Matt and Kerry somehow managed to capture all of those moments, but we barely noticed they were there. At one point I did look up and see Matt perched on a speaker, trying to get the best angle of what was a packed dance floor – pretty impressive, and a man dedicated to his craft! Not only were Matt and Kerry the best photographers we could have asked for, but they were like jack-of-all-trades for a wedding. Matt was on the scene with extra safety pins for the girls dresses. Kerry put on all the groomsmen’s boutonnières and came to the rescue with a sewing kit when the best man lost a button on his vest. Finally, when a family member had to deal with a health issue, Matt, who is a trained EMT, was kind enough to assist and ensure everyone stayed calm. We don’t think many other photographers could have taken such a beautiful set of wedding photos, but even if they could have, we are certain no one would be as much of a pleasure to work with as Matt and Kerry. We just received our proofs and we have no idea how we are going to select just a few!

What incredible professionals! From the moment we met with Matt to review his work and pricing before we chose our photographer, we were beyond sure that he was going to be the one! His creative journalistic style with photography is what drew us to him and his work.
Matt and his wife Carrie are an amazing duo! The day of our wedding they were there even before I, the bride, arrived at our venue! They were ready to start shooting the moment I walked in the door with my entourage! During the day, we never once noticed them (unless they pulled us aside for a “must have” shot). In fact, when reviewing some friends pictures, we noticed where they were and we never once remember seeing them take those particular pictures! VERY STEALTH! During our family pictures after the wedding, we have never seen such organization! They had our family pics done in no time so that we could get to our cocktail hour asap!
The proofs, which came in 3 weeks after the wedding (wow, FAST!), were absolutely, hands down, FABULOUS! Between the 2 of them, we had over 1000 proofs to go through. All of them screaming emotion from the day and letting us relive our day, tears and all!
All in all, we are/were extremely pleased with their services and the photographs taken. We can’t wait to start picking out pictures for our album (I don’t know how we plan to not pick all of them!) and being able to really put our story together as a beautiful keepsake.
Matt and Carrie are true professionals, they know how to run the wedding party and get the most important pictures of the day. What we love about their style is that they are able to capture the most candid, raw moments. The moments that we choose to remember on our wedding day and they did just that! They captured moments that we didn’t even realize were there on the day of.
What a huge pleasure to have them share our special day! Our friends and family cannot stop saying enough good things about them and how considerate they were. We are still talking about how incredibly pleased we were!
Thanks Matt and Carrie! You will forever be referred by us!
