There are not enough words to express how wonderful these two people are. Matt and Molly are such a talented, fun and professional couple to work with. They make you feel like family right away and make you feel so special. We used them for our engagement photos and our for our wedding, and now I can't wait to start a family so we can hire them again to do pregnancy and family photos. The moments they capture are truly magnificent and express all the emotions, magic and wonder of that day. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, well Matt and Molly's photos are worth a million words. If capturing your special day in photos is as important to you as it was to me at my wedding, hire Matt and Molly, it will be the best experience of your life.

Mathieu Photography was phenomenal. I found them from a post that highlighted some of their work that I recognized from an episode of David Tutera’s My Fair Wedding. Not only did I love their style, I loved that we were hiring a husband and wife team and essentially a small family business. (Also we knew who we were hiring! - most photography companies in the price range we were looking at only offered associate photographers to send for the day and not the main photographer whose name was usually on the business and photos on the site. How were we to know what the style of the photos would look like in the end?!?) Matt and Molly were awesome communicators, on time for our engagement photo shoot and the wedding day, got us our photos super quick (no horror stories of waiting a year plus for wedding photos with these two!), and also just good people! They were detail oriented, streamlined, and (most important to me) easy to work with! Their beautiful photos help us define such a special time in our lives, I’m grateful for their hard work and awesomeness!

Matt and Molly are amazing people with this incredible ability to find and capture the happiness in every moment of your wedding!

I had a lot of interviews lined up to meet with several photographers before our wedding. After I met Molly in a darling little coffee shop, I cancelled the rest of my appointments. I knew Mathieu Photo was the one for my husband and I! Their photos were STUNNING and FUN! You can truly feel the emotions pouring through the photos.

Molly and Matt took the time to get to know us as a couple and why we wanted to get married. For Christmas, we got a gift in the mail from them with two deer in love (because we mentioned how we are both a little redneck-y and my hubby is a hunter). So thoughtful!! They are honestly role models of a healthy marriage and a loving family!

On the day of our wedding, they were professional, but so friendly that I felt like they were just a part of the bridal party! Also, they didn't take up a huge chunk of the day by taking portraits. I wanted to enjoy the day with the guests of my wedding! We got exactly what we wanted and needed to capture the fun, the emotions, the party, and the lifelong memories.

I HIGHLY recommend Mathieu Photography to any couple that is looking for getting some timeless photos that capture all the small moments of a great day!

Mathieu Photography is just awesome! Our engagement pictures were more than we ever could've asked for. I wasn't sure I even wanted to take them, but it was such a fun experience. The pictures are gorgeous and it was great getting to work with Matt before our actual wedding day.

Then the wedding pictures--they're just divine! They were so great on our wedding day and completely unintrusive. So many times I thought, "I hope someone is taking a picture of this." I don't know where they were standing because I never saw them, but they captured every great moment of our day. Every picture is more than either of us ever expected. Going through the pictures the way they were able to capture light, the scenery, our joy, and all the details--it absolutely takes my breath away every time I look at our pictures (and I can't stop!).

I highly recommend using Mathieu photography. They are more than reasonably priced for all the time you get and the quality of the photos. Plus, they are the nicest people EVER! Definitely people you want to hang out with you all day!

Matt and Molly are the sweetest, most kind, funny and talented photographers. The first time I met Molly, I felt like I just clicked with her right away. A lot of people say it's really important to like your photographers since you'll be spending a lot of time with them. We LOVE Matt and Molly. Our engagement photos not only turned out beautifully, but we had the best time just hanging out with them. Then, came our wedding day, when Molly was just like one of the girls and I couldn't wait to see both of them. Several people commented on how funny they were (Molly easily organized people into the photos we wanted, letting people know who was needed, who wasn't needed, all in a kind way), and I have NO DOUBT our wedding photos will turn out beautifully. It's hard to find the words that will convey to other brides just how amazing people are, so I think it's safe to say that Matt and Molly are just beyond anything I will ever be able to describe. We were so unbelievably lucky to have them photograph our wedding, and look forward to having them there for other important milestones in our lives. We love you Matt and Molly!!

Matt & Molly were amazing!!! Every picture came out beautiful and more than I could ever except! On the big day, I LOVED that molly took charge and had everyone in and out of pictures! My wedding party got to enjoy cocktail hour because of it! After only a meeting or two you feel like they are a part of the wedding party!

Matt and Molly are by far the best decision we made for our wedding day (other than choosing to get married!)! They were the first photographers we met with and based on that first meeting we knew immediately that we needed to hire them for our wedding. They are friendly, down-to-earth, funny and so completely easy-going and fun to work with it was a joy to do business with them.
They shot both, our engagement pictures and our wedding and both sets of photographs came out so gorgeous! They were willing to accommodate whatever location we wanted for our engagement shoot and even worked with us so we could bring our dogs into it. Even when we lost the light completely due to cloud cover they managed to use their creative genius and use their car's brake lights to come up with some of the coolest shots ever!
We received so many compliments from guests of our wedding and our wedding party about "our photographers'. Everyone raved about their professionalism, their willingness to accommodate and the fact that they were so friendly! My favorite part is that they are a husband and wife team that works amazingly well together. On a day such as your wedding it is so important to be surrounded by your loved ones, as well as people who are great examples of love in marriage and Matt and Molly are exactly that. They are an exemplary team an we couldn't have asked for anything more.
There isn't a single thing we would change about our encounters and dealings with Matt and Molly (Mathieu Photography) and we will certainly look for other reasons to use them and recommend them in the future!

At first I thought their prices were a bit high, but after the experience we had with Matt and Molly, I would say they are 110% worth the price! They made everything easy and were super laid back, so that made our wedding day less stressful. They were willling go where ever we wanted for our engagement shoot (even a long treck to find a redwood forest in Orange County!). The pictures were simply amazing. They gave me all the digital copies and almost every shot is a keeper. They are so creative!

I also love that they are a husband and wife team. Very supportive, encouraging and not weird! I know I've been in weddings before where the photographer was weird. I also liked that they didn't do a ton of posed shots, a lot of it was natural and young, modern photography.

Highly recommended!!

This photographer was really willing to work with us and had a great creative eye. They made us feel at home, and were very professional. At the wedding they really made sure to capture all the images we had requested and then some! Our groomsmen even invited them on the dance floor. When our wedding went a little longer than planned, they were completely flexible and stayed until we had our grand exit! I would definitely recommend them for brides and grooms looking for professional, friendly and creative photographers.
