Some things are better in pairs. Like shoes, knitting needles and photographers when shooting a wedding. Matt and Laura are a husband and wife team who are passionate about what they do and each other. Married for just over 10 years they love to capture photographs of other couples in love.

Telling stories through their photography is what sets them apart from other photographers and what they love most is how each wedding is unique, new and exciting. Capturing the details, both big and small is so important. From getting ready to the excitement of friends and family being together to that first kiss as husband and wife and dancing the night away.

When you hire Matt and Laura you're hiring over 20 years of combined photographic experience. They are described as boutique wedding photographers because they shoot less than a dozen weddings a year, allowing them to take care of each of their clients and hand over high quality images that can be reproduced in fine art form if desired.

Matt and Laura have photographed intimate weddings with 20 guests to extravagant multi-day destination weddings with a guest list into the hundreds.
They love laughing, sharing stories and getting to know their couples. They love to photograph weddings and they love each other as well which gives them a unique perspective on capturing the love shared between a bride and groom.

Having the chance to document one of the most important days of a couples life is an honor that Matt and Laura take to heart.

Matt and Laura of GB Photographers were beyond wonderful for our wedding. Friends and family (and friends of friends) who were not able to attend have reached out to us and told us how much they enjoyed seeing our pictures and they could see how much fun we had. My husband and I both felt that this was the ultimate compliment to Matt and Laura - their work truly captures an event and makes everybody feel like they were there. On top of that, Matt and Laura are a blast to work with - they are fun, easy going, professional, and have great vision. We cannot say enough good things about them and would recommend them for any event.

Matt and Laura are a delight to work with and their pictures come out simply fabulous. We never even had to think about who we would hire to do the photography at our wedding, GB photographers handled my husband's elder brother's wedding and those pictures were so perfect we never even looked any one else. And they completely lived up to our high expectations. They took both our engagement photos and the wedding photos. They're a fun couple to work with, and you quickly get over the awkwardness of being followed around and photographed. They come up with interesting posed shots in fun settings and are masters at hitting the right light! Plus, the candid shots they captured of the day itself really caught the spirit of the wedding and the people in it! All of them are beautiful and completely professional! I keep flipping through them again and again just to relive the happiness of the day, and I can't get over how wonderfully they came out. I strongly recommend using GB photographers for your wedding- your photos will come out beautifully!

Matt and Garrett did our photography at our wedding in Boise, Idaho. Yes, we flew our photographers to Boise from California. Why? Because there was no way that we would leave our special day to chance. Matt and Garrett provided the absolute BEST photography services you can imagine. Our friends and family repeatedly have told us "Wow, they are so easy to be around", "You didn't even know they were there", "So unobtrusive, but in every single place". Every word of that is true. We have photos of our day that I don't even remember either of them being NEAR us at the time. We have photographs of everything. there is no moment that we look through our pictures and say "darn, we missed that moment" or "I wish we had captured that", because they captured it all!

We even used them for our "Visual Guestbook" where guests were able to go an be photographed (not photobooth style) by one of them and they can have these photos as well. Many of our guests said these are the only family photos they have and they will be cherished for a lifetime!

Our day was perfect and GB Photography made sure every moment of it was captured for us to review over a lifetime. We will be enlisting GB Photography photographer Laura for her skills as well in the creation of our amazing wedding albums! Full service operation and all the photographers are AMAZING!!

In searching for SF photographers for our wedding, I stumbled upon Laura Reoch's blog at Forget Me Not Designs (she custom designs photo albums for clients). I noticed how incredible her photos were on the blog, some of which she took herself, others were those that her photographer husband, Matt, had captured. She had a link to Garrett and Matt's website, both of who make up GB Photographers.

They were fantastic...I can't say enough about them, they were so fun, and their work was spectacular. They photographed our group on Friday at the Horse Races, and on Saturday at the wedding. Their professionalism, personalities, and talent made them a perfect fit for our special time together. We were so happy with the amazing photos we received, and are looking forward to the album they'll be customizing for us in the upcoming months.

We were exhilarated with their service, and are so glad we chose them!

Garrett and Matt are amazing. We are absolutely over-the-moon thrilled with our wedding photographs and cant stop talking about how thankful we are to have had GB Photographers with us on our wedding day. From our first meeting with Matt and Garrett, we have been thoroughly impressed by their friendly professionalism and genuine interest in understanding our expectations. As it turns out, they have far surpassed our expectations both as photographers and as people. They spent time asking about our vision and style and then went on to visit our wedding site with us months before the big day, scouting locations, snapping photos, and getting to know us. On the wedding day itself, Garrett and Matt somehow managed to be invisibly everywhere at exactly all the right moments. They captured incredible images of emotions, details, and breath-taking instances, all while maintaining a high level of energy, patience, and good humor. Not only do they take beautiful photographs, but they are an absolute pleasure to be around. Our wedding photographs receive ongoing, genuine compliments and continue to delight us as we look through them over and over (and over!) again. We highly, whole-heartedly recommend Matt and Garrett and look forward to a time when we can work with them again.

Working with GB Photographers is a complete delight. They are easy to get along with and fun to work with. That's just the quality of interacting with them. Then you get the breathtaking quality of their images. Every photo was amazing! Looking back at our images I thought we looked like rock stars. The wedding day itself was so hectic I hate to say it but I almost didn't remember it. Looking through our photos was like they remembered the day for me. It showed me how beautiful and intimate our day was. Matt and Garrett are warm, kind and will go out of their way to make your day special AND will capture images that will bring tears to your eyes. I couldn't recommend anyone more!

Garrett was wonderful. The response from our families has been incredible. They really captured the spirit of our wedding and provided us with great keepsakes. Several friends have contacted me about having them photograph their weddings after seeing our photos. Eric and I would recommend them to anyone, and we have recommended them to several people. Our parents still cry when they look at the photos. It was possibly the one time when our friends and family would all be in the same city and having Garrett to capture them meant so much to Eric and I.

We liked what we saw of Matt & Garrett's work so much that we persuaded them to come to Ireland for our wedding. In just three days, they scoped out the new location and managed to capture the essence of the place. On the days of the wedding, they were unobtrusive but seemed to be in just the right place at the right time to capture the moment. We really feel like we are reliving the wedding when we look at the photos again. They were also really friendly, easy guys to work with, going the extra mile to get it just the way we wanted. And everyone who has seen our photos says they are the best wedding photos that they've ever seen. Thanks Matt & Garrett!

Garrett and Matt fabulously surpassed all expectations on both dimensions we were looking for from our wedding photographers: they took amazing photos that literally brought tears to our eyes when we reviewed them, and they were a joy to work with actually adding to the wedding ceremony experience. While the pictures speak for themselves, probably the best story I can tell that captures what Garrett and Matt did for us involves a beach, a campsite, some champagne, and extra diligence on their part. We had really wanted to find a spot on the beach near the site of our wedding for post-ceremony pictures with just the two of us. But even though we were getting married along the Northern California coast, in the pre-wedding craziness we werent able to find an access point down the cliffs that would be manageable in a wedding dress and heels, so by the wedding day we had basically given up the idea. Garrett and Matt, however, did not give up, and went out of their way that day to negotiate with a local campsite owner to attain beach access up the road. They arranged for us to drive right up after the ceremony and take photos in the sand as the sunset over the horizon. Those are my favorite shots of the day! And having our first moments together as husband and wife, drinking champagne in a beautiful beach setting away from the festivities, was a magical time for us that set the stage for the rest of the evening. I cant imagine many other photographers would have gone the extra mile like that to give us a moment that meant so much. And if that wasnt enough- Garrett and Matts suggestion to provide a backdrop at the reception so that our guests could pose and take photos together was brilliant. Our friends and family loved having an opportunity to take photos together, and the results were like having a photo booth at our reception, only with Garrett and Matts artistic touch added to each photo! Our wedding photos are amazing. We enjoyed every step of the process with both of them, and can unequivocally say that if you want the best wedding photographers money can buy go with Garrett and Matt, you wont be disappointed.

We absolutely love our wedding photos and loved working with GB Photographers! Matt and Laura were extremely easy and fun to work with during our engagement and wedding photo shoots and they perfectly captured all of the little moments at our wedding, in addition to the main events. We felt like we were able to relive the day through the photographs they took and we're so happy we recieved them fairly quickly. We would absolutely recommend them to any one of our friend's getting married!
