OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe in treasuring each moment and living life to the fullest. Photography is our passion and we love telling stories of love. Whether it be the story of your wedding or your story after the wedding, We love documenting life and creating and capturing moments. 

Over the five years that we have been photographing weddings together , we have found that the best experience for our clients can happen when we click with each other. Your wedding is such a special day and it's important to us that we have a connection! We are going to be with you all day and we believe that if you are comfortable with us then you're going to be comfortable in front of our cameras. When you're relaxed, you will be more yourself and that will allow for the most real and intimate images that you're going to cherish forever. We want you to be able to look back at your images years from now and remember exactly how you felt in that moment. We'd love to meet with you over coffee and see if we're a good fit!

"I can not say enough amazing things about Samantha and Matt. From the first time we met with them, we all just clicked. They are so easy to talk to, be around, and their work is INCREDIBLE...They captured the day perfectly and honestly at the end of the day I was so sad to leave them because they were so great to be around! Samantha and Matt  are so professional, flexible, organized, responsive, the list could go on!"

"...The first time I talked with Sam on the phone, she was energetic and genuinely interested in Joe and I; she wanted to know our story and what led us to soon-to-be marriage...We spent a decent amount of time going over the details, and on the day of our wedding, I have not one complaint! Sam and Matt captured our wedding in such a beautiful and perfect way. They were on top of all the things we had requested and were flexible with us throughout the day...Matt and Sam are kind, genuine, talented, gifted, intentional and wonderful photographers."

"Samantha and Matt are amazing photographers. We interviewed several photographers to capture our wedding day, but Samantha had the most elegant photography, taste and she was the most genuine. From the very beginning, she was amazing to work with and took care of us throughout the entire process. I knew she was perfect to capture our special day from the day my husband and I met her. I can't say enough about this couple!"

"When it comes to all the expenses of a wedding, someone gave me great advice and said that the photographs are what will last and be great to always have around, pull out, and remember that day. In the end, if you choose to have Samantha and Matt photograph your wedding, you will be left with beautiful, romantic, and artistic photographs. We couldn't be happier with them."

We loved Matt & Sam! They were so easy to work with from Day One, and you can tell they really enjoy what they do. From capturing the details to the special moments, I wouldn't change one thing. I would recommend them over and over to anyone! There's a reason Sam was voted best in Charlotte!!

"Samantha and Matt are so wonderful! My hubby and I planned our NC event from VA and they were able to communicate with us via email, phone calls and text messages. We were only able to meet with them once in person before the big day, but you would've thought we had been friends for years. I had comments from family and friends saying "Your photographers were everywhere!" and after seeing the pics, they really were. I have informed Samantha and Matt that they are officially our family photographers, even if we have to travel hours away to make that happen. "

about

Hello! We are so happy you stopped by to get to know us a little better! We are a husband & wife duo of seven years who love God and are overjoyed to capture genuine love and emotion. We are destination and Charlotte wedding photographers and it makes our hearts full to have a camera in our hands and document real lives and real moments. We love that we get the opportunity to meet new people, develop relationships and learn about their stories. We were named one of the top wedding photographers in Charlotte and it's such an honor to be able to do what we love for so many amazing couples!

We are grateful to be able to do this together. It breathes life into our marriage and we hope that through your images, when you hit those hard moments, that you will remember the love and joy you share. 

Our story began nine years ago while playing volleyball at a park with mutual friends in Louisville, KY. We hit it off right away but only as friends. After a few months it developed into something more and a year later he proposed! He proposed in a field with a picnic and a 1,000 piece Lego castle that he built (ask us to know why!) Then on July 18, 2009 we were married! The story of us is a fun one; I mean we were almost attacked by wolves on our first date, so when we meet for coffee feel free to ask!
