If you are looking for high quality wedding photos that can be featured in top magazines then Matthew Sowa and his team are amazing!! They will not stop taking pictures...I don't even remember them taking a break at our wedding. They captured every person I invited to the wedding and every moment I hoped to see in print. I was so impressed with his work that I wish I was getting married again to get even more pictures. All the photographs really capture the moment in a fun, drama-filled and/or romantic way. Matt see's what no one else see's...until you get the images after your wedding is over...then you really appreciate the talent he has. He is not an ordinary photographer...he is an artist that always has to get that perfect shot...it really shows in the final outcome.

Based on all of the previous reviews here on The knot it should not be a surprise that Matt really is one of The BEST NYC photographer!

We didn't have a location in mind to shoot on our wedding day . We really relied on Matt and his ideas to come up with unique, beautiful locations and he came up with some amazing locations for us and our large bridal party to shoot at.He made the entire process enjoyable and comfortable both for us and our entire party. Both him and his assistant Ralph were amazing to work with and helped us out. We are so thankful that we chose to work Matthew Sowa Photography and we would recommend them to all our friends in need of a photographer. Best choice ever!

I got married on November 17th 2012. When my husband and I were in the process of looking for a photographer, we came across Mathew Sowa. From the moment we looked through his photos, we knew we had to have him be apart of our wedding day.
A few words that could describe Mathew are amazing, an artist and a true gentlemen. He did everything on our wedding day to make us feel comfortable while at the same time capturing our special moments with his camera. Mathew made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera when otherwise I am quite shy. Time went so fast on our wedding day, but I am so comforted to know I will always have these beautiful moments captured in these amazing pictures. I can honestly say it was a true privilege to work with someone so graceful and talented. I look forward to working with Mathew again and would recommend him to any bride that is getting married.

May sound strange coming from a bride but  - I never wanted a wedding. The day I decided that I cannot live if I don't have one was the day that I first saw Matthew Sowa's work. My now husband and I planned our wedding day around Matthew's availability. We would do so a million more times if we had to. In fact, we consider ourselves incredibly privileged and lucky to even be able to book Matthew for a day. He is busy for a reason!  His talent is unreal. I don't even have to mention it, it's enough to look at just one of his photos. When they say that a picture is worth a thousand words......., you should know that Matthew Sowa's picture will make you speechless.
