I can’t begin to explain my excitement when we were able to book you for our wedding!

Working with you was stress -free and you put two awkward people at ease in front of the camera. Not only were we thrilled with your commitment of capturing every moment, but I had so many people come up to me through the evening commenting on how impressed they were with you.
Your images reflect the joy and love we felt throughout the day (and most importantly, they’re so flattering!) You shot every detail as well as all the priceless candid moments throughout the reception. The pictures of our friends and family laughing and dancing are among my favorites.

As a bride, hiring you was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding. As a wedding planner, you are at the top of my recommendations. When my clients book you, I can rest assured that the wedding will be captured flawlessly.

We have only great things to say about our experience working with you!

The photos left us speechless and still never fail to bring us huge smiles and teary eyes!

From the beginning, Matt impressed us with his prompt, direct communication and willingness to accommodate.

He has mastered being relaxed and kind without overlooking a single detail, a rare combination. Having such epic photos from the most special day of our lives exceeds any value and we are so grateful for the memories from our engagement and wedding!

Thank you!

Matthew is the best! From the first interaction to the final presentation of our photos, the entire experience was timeless and classy.

Matt is the real deal and delivers exceptional work, all the while making you feel comfortable! He is extremely easy and flexible to work with and I wish I could have him photograph my entire life because he is that good!

Words cannot begin to describe how wonderful it was working with you! You knew how to capture the essence of our vision not only in our engagement photos but throughout our entire wedding. You were so kind, classy and professional that we feel so incredibly lucky to have had you as our photographer. It feels like Corey and I have known you forever with your welcoming personality. You were polished, funny, authentic and honest. It was a true pleasure having you involved in our big day. Even our guests raved to us after the wedding about how talented you were! The photos captured were so candid and beautiful. You made everyone feel important and we are so grateful to have had your level of excellence and expertise. You never made us feel that any request was too big. You captured the pure magic of the day and when we look at our photos we feel how special the moments truly were.

A few things that stand out about you is your professionalism. You were always punctual, transparent, honest and kind. You gave us back previews so quickly that it blew us away with the little turn around time you needed when you had a jammed packed schedule. We received a stunning wedding suite preview on our honeymoon filled with candid photos and images that we will cherish forever. You knew how to capture the moment and you could feel the joy, excitement and above all the love in the photos. We hope to use you for all future milestone moments.

Matt, you were exceptional. The best decision we made was having you as our photographer. Thank you again for going above and beyond in every way! We would recommend you 100 times over, you're simply the best.

After spending months looking all over the country for a photographer, we stumbled upon Matt and knew instantly that he was the photographer we wanted.

We are extremely happy with our wedding photographs. Matt did a great job using the environment to capture the spirit of our wedding. It felt as if he was a part of our family by the end of the weekend. It really helped him capture the warmth and joy of our wedding. His attention to details really helped bring our photos to life.

I would highly recommend him as a photographer, we couldn’t have found a more perfect person to shoot our wedding. We loved working with him so much that we used him for our maternity photos as well.

Thanks for the memories,

Matthew Land is the absolute best photographer out there!!!!

We were so lucky to have first seen his work through our friends’ wedding and immediately knew (before even getting engaged…) that we would hire him for our own! He is not only the kindest and most down-to-earth person, but also incredibly talented. When we did our engagement shoot we really didn’t know what to expect, but Matt helped set the tone and kept everything totally organic and comfortable, which showed through our pictures! No awkward or cliche poses, just effortlessly romantic and well-captured moments. Matt and his equally-talented brother, Jacob, both came to our wedding dressed to the nines and felt more like guests than cameramen!! They were such a pleasure to work with, and the beautiful moments they captured will be cherished forever.

Having Matt take photos of our wedding day was more than just a great decision–it was a true blessing.

First of all, Matt’s sweet personality and dry humor was such a welcome presence during the entire process, and especially on the day. It never felt weird having a guy in a suit follow me around with a camera. It honestly felt like I was just hanging out with a good friend who happened to take my picture (most of the time without me noticing!). Especially for someone like me who is an introvert and not a huge fan of pictures, he helped me to relax, enjoy the day, and be my true self in photos. Secondly, Matt genuinely cares about you and your wedding day. He is calm and laid back, but no one will work harder to make sure you have beautiful and timeless photos to remember your day. Throughout the day Matt kept asking me if I needed anything, how I was doing, and would always say “you look amazing” after taking my picture. What bride doesn’t want to hear that?! We got a few preview photos when we were on our honeymoon, and Matt returned 1500+ incredible photos to us within such a short time. Every single photo is pure magic. He caught the love of the day, and kept the emotion of every moment alive for us in our photos. We feel so blessed to be able to look back on these, share them with our families, and show them to our future children and have everyone not only see our day, but feel our day.

Matt is one of the most talented and kindest men around, and having him be part of our day was the best decision we made.

I cannot day enough good things about Matthew Land Studios.

He captured the most beautiful photos of our wedding day, and we had a blast with him for our engagement shoot in Seattle. The images are organic and real, and they capture the overall feeling of the day so perfectly. He truly has an artistic eye and got the most wonderful candid shots, in addition to the traditional wedding ones. Matt is an absolute pleasure to work with and an all-around awesome human. We will absolutely use him again for future photography needs. – L

I mean for a guy that only uses disposable cameras and a Power Ranger Polaroid, he’s outstanding. I’m only kidding, Matt is the man, he was a notch professional but it felt like I’ve known him forever. From our engagement photos to the big day everything was amazing. If you’re reading this, I seriously didn’t know Matt until we decided on him and his crew, don’t bother with anyone else. My family is still consistently (and positively) commenting on the quantity and quality of his work. Thanks for everything Matt!

Matthew Land!

Where do I even start, man.

Thank you so much for everything! It truly has been an honor, pleasure, and blessing to have met you. We knew you were an incredibly talented photographer; but to get to know the awesome guy you are was one heck of a gift. From the engagement shoot, to our wedding day (where by the way you were the first guest to greet us and the last to leave us.) you were an amazing person to work with and have as part of our special day.

Needless to say, the photos are absolutely stellar.

Thank you!

You are incredible!

We could not be happier with how they turned out. We popped open a (small) bottle of champagne and spent the last hour looking through them – we laughed, cried, and got so excited for our wedding.

We honestly can’t pick a favorite and might have to print all of them. Thank you so much!

Also, the series of Scout in the park was PERFECT thanks for letting us include our needy pup!

Where to begin. Matt surpassed all my expectations for my wedding photographer, period. I felt overwhelmed trying to pick a photographer with how little I knew about the whole process. I knew I needed someone I could trust that would also take the lead.

From the beginning, Matt was level headed, calm and made us feel so at ease about next steps leading up to the wedding. I had all but convinced myself I would have awkward wedding photos but with Matt’s calming demeanor and sense of humor, my husband and I felt so at ease! He made us laugh, and knew when to step back and let us find our moments for him to then capture perfectly. He doesn’t bombard with direction, but uses his expertise to subtly direct only when needed in order to keep your photos natural!

We smile every time we look at our photos and honestly could not imagine a better choice to have captured our wedding. Plus, he travels – our wedding was in Los Angeles!

When I was looking for a photographer for my vintage, London wedding, I wanted someone that was very creative, unique, and would be able to produce something a little bit different from all the other wedding photographers out there. Matthew Land was just the photographer for the job! I was so amazed with his work–we flew him over to London from the USA to shoot our wedding and we were not disappointed!

Everyone commented at how stunning all the photos looked–like in a magazine! Both my husband and I were hugely impressed with Matthew’s professionalism and the way he was able to know exactly what we wanted.

Thank you Matthew for capturing the most special day of our lives in such a beautiful way!



We absolutely loved working with Matt!

On top of being incredibly talented he is just so enjoyable to be around. Everyone from the vendors, to the wedding party and the guests had nothing but nice things to say about him. We just got our photos back and they are stunning!

We are so happy with how they turned out and we highly recommend working with Matt!!

Matt just took our family photos and we couldn’t be happier with the results. We all came down with colds so we needed to re-schedule our session, and Matt was very understanding and flexible. Getting a four year old and 10 month old to cooperate while taking pictures is no easy feat, but he gave us beautiful pictures that really captured our life and their personalities. We have so many favorites and I still get a little emotional looking through them. Matt was patient with us and our boys during the whole process and his turn-around time was amazing.

When we got married 12 years ago, Matthew Land wasn't available to shoot our wedding which is the only thing I regret about that awesome day. However, over the following years he's captured such precious moments with our children and growing family that his work is all over our house! Maybe I should ask my wife to re-marry me so Matt can document?

I really can't say enough about how fabulous of a photographer (and person) Matt is. He makes you feel completely at ease in front of the lens, and has such a great eye for composition and light. I'm not sure how we got so lucky, but we've had the great fortune of having him document our family love story from it's beginning with our engagement all the way through the recent addition of our second child. Each session I find myself marveling at how our photos seem even better than the last. We've received so many compliments on our photos, that several of our friends have chosen to go to Matt as well. We just absolutely love the guy!! If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding and/or family photos, do yourself a huge favor and contact Matt. You won't be disappointed!

Matthew Land Studios is obviously great with wedding photography. I was married before I discovered Matt and his team. With our first child, however, Matthew Land Studios has been our go-to for family pictures and we are always overjoyed. We've set our expectations really high because of his talent and professionalism and we're still overjoyed each time.
