"We were in search of a new photographer to take some family photos to update our outdated collection. I wasn't sure who to use and when asking some friends I was told the same person who did our daughter's cheerleading team photos (Volcano Vista YAFL 2013) did family photos. I contacted Matt who was able to give me sample photos and a very reasonable quote. He was so flexible in working with our schedule and was able to deal with me changing the time at almost the last minute. He found us a great location and was able to tell how the lighting and various other elements would work in our photos (I am in NO way informed about this kind of stuff but Matt did a wonderful job explaining the lighting, foreground, and shadows to me). I was shocked at how fast our pictures were done and cannot say enough about them. He captured the joy and personalities of my family. He was so friendly that my kiddos really enjoyed having their photos taken. He allowed us to be creative and he captured the real essence and unique nature of our family. All our friends and family simply love the photos. I cannot thank Matt enough for the exquisite job he did in creating such wonderful memories on film for us."
