There is more to a photo than what meets the eye. Something that goes beyond the traditional elements of exposure and composition; it’s that x factor that feels genuine and can really tell a story. Whether it’s the innocence of your furry friend wagging its tail to greet you at the door, the contagious smiles of bride and groom as they meet at the altar, or the harsh cracks and detail of rock telling stories of millions of years past, we all have stories to tell and memories to cherish.


I’m Matthew – I grew up in beautiful Napa Valley, California, and now reside in lovely Lyons, Colorado. When I’m not behind the lens, I can be found out and about on local trails or making music. I love to make pictures of people and things. It brings me joy to see stories unfold, and I am beyond grateful to help to capture those stories for you.

Hailey & Juan

“Matthew provided a great experience for our first set of photos as a couple and was very professional. He was so easy to work with and, even when we weren’t quite sure what we wanted, he had tons of ideas in his back pocket and helped make sure we got the most out of our session with him. He scouted out an amazing and picturesque spot and we ended up with photos we adore. One thing I think is very special about Matthew is that he balances his vision as a photographer with your needs and wants and, in doing so, provides a great, stress-free experience and quality photos. I also really appreciated that Matthew had accessibility in mind and made sure we could get to each spot easily and had options in doing so, which was very important to me as a disabled person. I would highly recommend Matthew to anyone looking to get quality, professional photos done with someone who is super easy to work with!”

Bella & Biscuit

“I contracted Matthew to take photos of my dog Bella and my daughter’s dog Biscuit in 2018. Matthew was punctual and professional. We were very pleased with the whole experience and the photos were wonderful, really capturing the essence of both dogs. I wouldn’t hesitate to use Matthew again.”





“Working with Matthew to get the right photos for our wedding save-the-dates was a great experience. We used Rocky Mountain National Park as our backdrop and Matthew already knew the area well enough to pick the perfect locations. Matthew has an impressive knowledge of photography techniques and hosts a great collection of professional equipment. Going into the photo shoot, we were unsure of what we wanted but Matthew made the whole experience comfortable and easy. I'm sure whatever idea you have for the perfect photo, Matthew can make it happen!”

Taylor & Colin

“My fiancé and I enjoyed working with Matthew for our engagement photos. In addition to typical, cute, posed photographs, Matthew provided us with a lot of opportunities for candid photos that I did not expect and they ended up being the photos we loved the most. He helped make the experience comfortable for us and was professional and friendly throughout. He also helped us include our dog in the photos, which took a lot of patience on his part, and was very appreciated! We highly recommend Matthew to people looking for high quality photos from a fun and relaxing photoshoot.”
