I can't imagine a better experience than that given to us by Still Life Photography. My husband and I couldn't be happier with the photos and the incredible service they provided. They clearly explained everything for us before, during, & after the big day, offering us great deals and tons of options for photos, prints, videography, etc. Furthermore, they helped us choose the best time possible for our ceremony so we could get the perfect lighting for the photos. When the wedding day finally came, the photographer came prepared, and was so professional and fun, that my husband and I felt comfortable and confident the entire day. He had some great photo ideas prepared, and listened to our opinions and ideas with an open mind. We felt truly comfortable with our photographer and he was so easy to get along with. The photos are beautiful, and I couldn't have asked for more! I'm thrilled to show people our big day, because the photographer really captured the beauty, fun, and joy we felt. Still Life is amazing! Thank you Still Life!

My husband and I had an fabulous experience with Still Life Photography. Our consultation went them was laid back yet extremely informative. They were so flexible as they truly built their schedule for our wedding day around us. A bit after our consultation, we did a mini-engagement session with Nate. He was really funny and went out of his way to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera. The pictures he took came out beautifully. Thank you Nate! Bridget photographed our wedding. She was AMAZING!! She captured our day so well. Bridget was everywhere to take all of the pictures that we wanted but she was never bossy or over-present. We couldn't have chosen a better photographer for our big day. Thank you Bridget! Through the process, I had the opportunity to interact with pretty much the whole team at Still Life Studios. Everyone was knowledgeable, kind, and professional. we would highly recommend Still Life Studios to anyone that is searching for a photographer who will give them the highest quality of pictures and customer service.

We are so lucky to have found Still Life. My husband was very choosy about our photographer. Having amazing wedding pictures was very important to us. Once we visited Still Life's studio and website, we knew they were the company for us. On our wedding day, they didn't disappoint. Matt was wonderful to work with. He handled our large families with ease and kept a smile on everyone's face. Many people commented to us on what a great photographer we found. We couldn't be happier with our pictures. There are so many good ones we're having a hard time deciding which ones to print. This is a great problem to have. Thank you, Still Life!

The team is so quick to answer emails and sit down with to discuss details. Our engagement, wedding, and now I'm sure our thank you post cards will all be gorgeous! Thank you Still Life!!

Still life is awesome! They are very personable and they know what there doing. Justin and Bridget know what they are doing. Our wedding was beautiful and we couldn't be happier. We can not wait to see all of our photos and the video from our wedding and relive each moment by what was done! Our photographers went above and beyond it was pouring rain and they wanted to get the perfect picture so they didn't care if they got soaking wet they wanted to make us happy with the end results and boy oh boy does it look awesome. We would deff inanely tell everyone about them and tell them to choose still life. Thanks again from the bottom of our hearts Rosanne and Gregory

My wedding photos came out absolutely gorgeous. I hate having my photo taken but Nate made it very comfortable and he got great shots of every important part of the day. He sent me I think around 700 shots, all of which were good, how is that possible? I usually hate the way I look in 3/4 photos. Thank you!!

I am a Director of Catering and Wedding Coordinator myself, so when it came to choosing my vendor team for my own wedding, it was extremely important to me that I had only the best of the best.
Over the past 5 & 1/2 years of my career, I have seen Still Life Studios in action at tons of weddings I have coordinated and have referred them to all my couples....because they are the BEST!
As soon as we got engaged, I booked Still Life. We even picked our date around their availability!
That day, the team was beyond amazing to work with. They were by our side the entire time and made sure that all the photos we requested were taken. But, the best part was that they just made it all happen. They needed no direction whatsoever as they are true professionals. I felt so taken care of by them!
My husband is not big on having his picture taken, but as soon as he saw the first photo they took of us, he was shocked!! He couldn't believe his eyes. They were incredible!!
Once we saw our photos (only 1 week later!) every single one was better than the next. They managed to truly capture every emotion and aspect of our amazing day.
This was not my first time using Still Life and will definitely not be our last.
As I tell brides, your photos are the one thing you will have after the wedding, so make sure you choose the photographer who is going to do the best job capturing that day. Still Life is the absolute best and they gave us the most incredible memories of our day. I will never be able to thank them enough for that gift.

We chose Regency Garden as our wedding venue (11/2/13) and Still Life is their recommended photographer. We are so glad that they were our photographer because our pictures were AMAZING!!! We also did our engagement photos with them as well which was a great way to get used to kissing on demand... in front of a camera lol! It also gave us a chance to get to know our photographer, Bridget, and prepare us for pictures and poses on the big day. Bridget was amazing and super friendly... she really got us to feel comfortable and surprisingly we looked natural in our pictures because we both thought we were going to look awkward. We had so many amazing pictures from our wedding we ended up getting the full resolution DVD of all the pictures. I'm really looking forward to making our wedding collage with these beautiful pictures! We also hired Richard to be our videographer who did a great job capturing special 'moments' and I have a feeling he's going to make us look like we're actors on the big screen! We're super excited to see our wedding video once it's complete... can't wait! Thank you Bridget and Richard for capturing the special moments of our big day! It went by so fast and we're so glad we have your beautiful pictures to look at and remember that day for years to come!!

We were delighted with our experience with Still Life Studios. We worked with Bridget, who is professional, friendly, and easygoing. We are so happy with the pictures, and impressed that one person could take all the quality photos that we received: all our guests were captured in candid reception and pre-ceremony shots, the posed photos of the wedding groups are fantastic, and the wedding ceremony and reception pictures truly capture the emotional experience. Thank you!

From the very start, Matt and the entire crew at Still Life Studios were incredibly friendly, accommodating and could not have made the process any easier for me, especially as an out-of-state bride! After picking my venue while on a weekend trip in Phoenix, Still Life Studios was able to fit me in, last minute, for my intro session where I met Matt. He was very knowledgeable and put me at ease, never making me feel like I was being sold or pressured into anything. He was sincerely interested in the story my fiance and I shared; our first meeting was like chatting with an old friend that was genuinely excited for us to get married. The studio was great at communicating with me, answering questions, keeping me informed, etc.; I never had to worry about them and always felt like they were on top of things. I was so pleased when I found out that Matt was able to be our photographer. He went above and beyond my expectations by bringing an assistant and made sure my husband and I (plus our guests) were very comfortable throughout the ceremony and reception. The results of their efforts are stellar. There are so many fantastic shots from our wedding that picking our favorites has been a challenge. I especially appreciate all of the shots of things I didn't get to see during the night; thank goodness for these pictures, because as I was warned, it really is a blur that flies by. My husband and I will forever cherish the memories captured in all of our pictures thanks to Still Life Studios.

She was so easy to work with and did an amazing job capturing some of the most amazing and beautiful shots of the wedding. We had her for a full 7 hours and she took a total of 880 pictures. She could be seen many times running to get the next shot at just the right time. We are so pleased with all of the pictures from the wedding as well as the engagement pictures. Still Life does a great job and their pictures are all of the highest quality. It is so nice working with such a pleasant photographer who knows what she is doing. Bridget is awesome and well recommended for your wedding. Bradley and I are extremely pleased with our cherished memories.

Still Life Studios: Where can I start?
My experience with Still Life Studios was AMAZING! Starting off with my photographer Bridget! She came in early to begin taking pictures. I was freaking out about being late to my wedding because the make up artist came in late and she took longer on my mother and my mother-in-law's make up. Bridget calmed me down with her words. Having been a bride herself, she knew what to say. Through out the day, she kept telling me to have fun and not stress and really enjoy my wedding because it would fly by so fast. She was right. She also stayed extra time and covered the whole wedding taking incredible pictures. She was so creative with the poses. She even got on top of a wall to take pictures from the top-down and take pictures from different angles. In addition, she also listened to what poses I wanted and again put her creative input. I would recommend her in a heart beat! Still life studios photography take beautiful pictures but they are so understanding. Through the package I got, I was to receive 150 out of 555. They gave me access to an account to choose my favorites. I changed my mind about 4 or 5 times. I made about 5 submissions of my favorites and I substituted pictures and every time I would write that it was my last submission for favorites. Along with Bridget, Jane, was helpful as well. She responded to many emails that I sent her with questions about my photo package, and she was helpful when I changed my mind about my favorite photos. Overall, I was impressed and glad that I was able to have Still Life Studios Photography at my wedding. I highly recommend them if you want people who are
professional and talented at their work. I was always treated with respect and they truly value customer satisfaction. Even though I received 150 out of 555 photos, I can go back and get the remainder of the photos in any size or on a high resolution dvd. I am definitely booking them for another important event! Thank you Still Life

Still Life Studios captured all the wonderful moments of our wedding day. They were easy to work with, which was helpful for a busy bride and groom. We booked Still Life Studios as part of our wedding package through Regency Garden. We highly recommend the combination! The photographer was quick in getting the photos back to us from the wedding day. Also, having the online album made it very easy to let everyone see all of the photos from the day.

Thank you Still Life Studios for giving us visuals for the day we will remember forever. The wedding went by in the blink of an eye and we are so grateful to have the memories captured!

Thank you,

Still Life provided us with video and photos of our engagement as well as our big day!! We were married at Regency Garden in Mesa and Still Life was part of our package. After hearing so many wedding day picture mishaps, I was a little nervous! But..Chris at Regency puts together a great team for the packages! We are more than pleased with Nate and Bridgette!! They were fun and our pictures are wonderful!! When Bridgette explained our package to us she showed us our options and gave us plenty of time to think about what were going to want and need before making a big decision! She was passionate about what Still Life has to offer and made us feel really good about our photographer from the start. They were obviously all over during our wedding and reception, but I never felt like they were in the way or to pushy or taking up to much time!Everything went smooth and effortlessly! Needless to say we were not let down with our pictures!! Now we just have to buy a new house so we can hang more pictures;)

Bridget at Still Life Studios did an EXCELLENT job on both our engagement and wedding photos. All the photos turned out AMAZING and it is hard choosing which to buy because they were all beautiful. Still life is very responsive and makes sure you get all the shots you want! Also, we bought our wedding invitations and again they were unbelievable. I currently live in Oregon (was in Arizona) and did most of my stuff over the phone or email and I was pleased with both the service and the product. Thanks again BRIDGET and Still Life for making our day so special. xoxox Goodmans (Chris, Kim, Cace)

We LOVED Still Life, and my family has talked about using them for future family events. With positive, up beat attitudes, they meet our every desire! Pictures were the one thing that would last from the events of the wedding, and we wanted them to be GOOD! What we were not expecting was such a fun photo shoot. The memory of taking the photos with Still Life owner Matt, will last forever. He had us (Bride, Groom, and Families) in stitches. My cheeks hurt more from laughing at the jokes that were made, than from smiling for each picture. We were pleased with the time and effort that Still Life put in for our wedding. They were a part of a dream come true. You will not be disappointed!

We had a wonderful experience with Still Life. Our photographer and videographer put us at ease right from the beginning and made us feel comfortable with the whole process. They came with great ideas for the photo shoots. Our photos came out amazing; the hardest part is trying to narrow down which ones we want. They captured many beautiful poses, but they also took amazing photos of our friends and family as they were celebrating. We will treasure them!

Still Life Studios was amazing! Matt and his staff are great! Matt and Chad were our photopgrahers and they both did an amazing job! We couldn't be any happier with our pictures. We also got alot of great compliments on all our pictures. His team did a great job as well, I really liked how quickly they got back to emails and answered every question I had in a timely manner. On the day of the wedding, Matt and Chad showed up before I got there and was ready as soon as I Stepped through the door. He caught every moment I had asked for and more!!! Thank you so much for everything you all did!!!

We just wanted to say THANK YOU to Richard (Videography) and Justin (Photography) for the videos and pictures, they all came out amazing. We could not have hoped for anything more, our expectations were completely surpassed! The quality, editing, music, all of it, is just perfect. We've already begun sharing them on Facebook and with family and friends. Thanks again for all you two have done, it was a pleasure having you both with us at the wedding and working with you since then! Best wishes!

Sincerely,


Amy and Erik Federico

Still Life made my experience extremely easy. I met with a photographer to go over what my package included and was shown extras that they offered. Unlike some other vendors, I did not feel any pressure whatsoever to order any extras. The girl I met with had been married at the same venue as me and had used Still Life prior to working there. She told me that after her experience with them, she applied to work at Still Life because she loved them so much so I felt confident that I was getting the best! And I was right. Our photographer was great! He didn't get in the way in the bride or grooms room yet was able to get fantastic shots without anyone even noticing. And after every session, he made sure we were getting all the poses and shots that we wanted. We received our pictures a week later and the website made it easy to pick out our favorites and submit them. I would definitely reccomend Still Life Studios for someone else's wedding.

Still Life was fabulous! They took both our engagement photos and wedding photos at Regency Garden and we couldn't be more happy with how they came out. Our photographer was Justin and he made us feel at ease, listened our specific requests for certain shots and helped find fantastic ways to use some of our own props that we brought. We had family members look at our pictures and comment on how they didn't even notice him but still he was able to capture even the smallest moments that we are so grateful to have now. Their office was very quick at communicating with us and clearly explaining all of our options. For me, my wedding pictures were one of the most important things and I was not disappointed. I would recommend Still Life to any bride!

We loved working with Still Life Studios! Nate was our photographer, but all of the staff was very friendly, helpful, and quick to respond to any questions that we had. I recommend getting your engagement photos with them as we'll, so you can make sure you and your photographer have the same ideas of photos to take - worked great for the wedding! We especially appreciated their willingness to travel with us to our engagement photo site in Superior, AZ. Hope to work with them again soon!!

We couldn't be happier with the way the pictures turned out, and we are so grateful we got to work with Still Life. We will defiantly recommend StillLife to everybody we know!!

Bridget was our photographer from Still Life Studios and she was amazing. She went above and beyond--even helping me out with things that weren't her responsibility. She captured some amazing photos and we are so pleased with them. In fact our package was for 150 photos on disc and in print but she took SO many good ones we decided to upgrade and buy them all-every single one! She was great at giving direction and wasn't afraid to climb all over and get dirty. I'm sure all Still Life photographers are as awesome as her but we feel lucky that she captured out special day!

Our Still Life Photographer, Nate, was great at capturing our special day! The photography we had seen before choosing the venue that he works with was definitely a factor in who we chose, as we noticed the photography including traditional, but modern pictures as well. We're not huge fans of the "posed" pictures, so there were a lot of options to have different, quirky pictures taken that express our personalities more. It only took a few days after the wedding to receive our photo link and the pictures came out AMAZING!

We worked with Still Life Studios through Regency Garden and they were fun and easy to work with. Nate was our photographer for our engagement session and the wedding day, and he was laid back, funny and made the process of taking pictures less awkward! :) They help guide you through the timing of the wedding day, and their schedule still leaves you time to enjoy your entire reception. And the photos are amazing! I love the quality of their work.

STILL LIFE STUDIOS ARE AMAZING! Matt took so many amazing photos that it was so hard to narrow down which ones to get prints of. His enthusiasm was contagious. The family portraits went smoothly and he even got our 2 year old nephews smiling for every picture. He caught the most amazing moments of the wedding and reception and never felt like he was in the way. I usually hate how I look in photos but I love these! I just can't say enough about how they made our special day SPECTACULAR!

We loved Still Life Studios! We were an out of state bride and groom from Seattle, WA and were highly recommended to them from where we got married. We were in town for a weekend to set up our wedding stuff, and they made sure to squeeze us in so we could have a meeting with them. Not only were they extremely nice, they were also extremely informative. Since we there for such a short period of time and wouldn't be in town until the wedding, they were also squeezed us in for our free engagement session with no problems at all - they worked around our schedule. We had two photographers, and we asked for Matt (the owner) and Cozette (the same person who did our engagement pictures). They made sure that we got who we asked for, which we were thankful for. For the wedding pictures, we got them back very quickly and are in LOVE with them. The pictures are done in a creative manner and very professional. Not to mention they were fun to have us take our pictures, they just make you laugh. We would highly recommend them to anyone. When we have kids we will probably even make a point to go back to Arizona so we can have them take our pictures again.

Our engagement photos were amazing and our wedding pictures couldn't have been better! They were amazing. We love looking at them. Our photographer was great and I didn't even notice him most of the time. Also, I highly recommend doing the first meeting because those are some of our most cherished photos from the whole wedding. We got my husbands favorite photo from that and it makes you a lot less nervous! Thanks again, Still Life Studios.

My husband and I were reccomended to this studio by a couple of friends of ours who also used them for their wedding, and we couldn't be happier with our photos and the services they provided. The second we met we both felt a part of the still life family. We got to work with several of the still life team, including Cozette, who shot our engagement session and Matt and Nate who both shot our wedding, and we could not be happier with our photos! We ended up with lots of wonderfully artistic shots, both candid and posed, and everyone who has seen the photos are truly amazed at the outcome. I told my husband in refrence to some of them, "Wow! those are magazine shots!" They are exactly the kind of photos we wanted from our wedding day and couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Thank you still life! You guys are awesome!! :)

I met with Matt a mere 19 days before my wedding, after my originally booked photographer flaked out on me. We got along great and he informed me that my photographer, Jacque, was kind of like a female version of him, so I had no fears about working with her. True to word, Jacque was amazing and great to work with. One of my friends had a tiny crush on her I think, and still regrets not asking for her number, that's how well she fit in with our crowd :). Our wedding was on a Saturday, and by the next Friday (6 days!) I got the email that our gallery was up for our viewing. My only complaint is that we were on our honeymoon without computer access, and the gallery is not mobile-enabled, meaning we had to wait 5 more days until we got home to see them! The images are all amazing, and captured the joy, love, and fun that we had that day. I can't say enough great things about Jacque, Matt, or the rest of the Still Life team.

Matt was our photographer for our June 10th 2011 wedding at Regency Garden in Mesa, AZ. His personality style was extraverted and a little silly and fun, and he fit right in to our celebration. He got great photos by integrating into the day and the guests really enjoyed him; even the ones who "hate" getting their pictures taken. The photos turned out just as we expected and hoped...perfect. We happily recommend Matt and his studio for your photography needs.

My husband and I were planning our wedding, which was in Arizona, while I was working in Colorado Springs and he was in San Diego. Still Life Studios worked with our unconventional work schedule and were extremely flexible to help us schedule our engagement shoot the one weekend we were both in Arizona. They made it as easy as possible to organize the photography portion of our wedding from long distance. Matt, our photographer, was awesome. My husband and I are both shy around the camera, but Matt put himself out there to help us feel at ease. Our pictures turned out wonderful, better than we could have imagined. He made the experience fun and enjoyable. Friends and family commented how great the photographer was. They definitely know what they are doing. Thank you for all the wonderful photos of our wonderful day!

What can I say about Still Life Studios but that I love Matt Wheeler! What an amazing team and business he has built with photography that doesn't disappoint. I booked with them using the vendor package through Regency Garden and it was a decision that did not disappoint. I used to work as a photographer (nothing of Still Life caliber but enough that I was very picky when it came to choosing a wedding photographer) and when I saw Still Life Studios' work, I knew I didn't have to worry or look anymore.
First of all, Matt has a personality that is so open, friendly, and goofy that you immediately feel comfortable and able to laugh. He became a friend during the engagement session so made the wedding day a complete blast! He has such an eye for detail, angles, different perspectives that just translate into incredibly beautiful and unique photographs. There are so many great "I HAVE to have" shots that I may have to take a second job so I can get them all! lol.
I had ordered a guest book through them as well which Cosette designed that turned out lovely! The quality of their albums is 100 times better than those you can make and order yourself and the price is very reasonable in comparison as well.
Another plus is how fast the pictures were ready for viewing. Our wedding was April 30th and the online gallery was up May 6th. I was expecting to wait at least a couple weeks so imagine my surprise and utter delight to have gotten the notification email not even a week later!
Thank you SO much to Still Life Studios and Matt, you made the day special and unique, and captured everything we wanted and then some! Even the request to have an entire bridal party on a big pink chair! Thank you a million times, we will definitely be visiting Still Life Studios again for family pictures in years to come!

Still Life Studios was amazing. Our photos came out great and our photographers were fun and went above and beyond to get the best smiles out of us and our guests. The package we got with them included an engagement session in addition to the wedding. Our photographer for the engagement session was Jacque and we basically went all around a giant park taking photos at various points (by a lake, on some rocks, under a tree, all kind of interesting spots and angles). It was very fun and actually kind of romantic.

On the day of the wedding, we actually had the owner, Matt, snapping our pictures. He went so far above and beyond when taking our pictures, I don't know if he's come down yet. He got his whole body involved in making sure everyone smile and was constantly talking and joking to get the best smiles out of everyone. He laid on the ground and climbed walls to get great angles for shots of us and our bridal party. I doubt he ever has to actually go to a gym because he gets such a workout during his photo shoots.

Still Life was included in the package we booked with Regency Garden and we're so glad it was. They were great! Their customer service was great too when we called their office. And the photographers just bring so much energy and passion to their work. We highly recommend this studio!

Still Life Studios was awesome! We paid a little more than some other photographers, but it was well worth it! We got so many amazing shots. People kept commenting on how good the photographers were! They always responded quickly through email or a phone call whenever I had questions. And they had our online gallery up before we even got back from the honeymoon! I've heard other brides that had to wait months for their pictures. My wedding was in April in Arizona, peak wedding time, and they still got this done and never keep me waiting. Cosette did our engagement session and she was wonderful to work with, and took a ton of really great shots. Matt was our lead photographer at the wedding and he made sure we got everything we wanted to make it a perfect day. I would recommend them to anyone who needs a photographer.

Still Life provided both photography and videography for our wedding, both of which were done exceptionally well. The staff, both behind the secenes, and those at the event were very professional. We paid for a second photographer which we would highly recommend for those that want to catch all the action before, during and after the wedding. Also, after much thought we finally decided to go with a videographer, which ended up being one of our best decisions of the whole wedding planning process after realizing the next day how much of the event you really don't recall and would like to relive.

The weather and sunset happened to cooperate that night and we still can't get over how amazing the photos turned out. We also had a number of guests compliment on the photographers and their willingness to do whatever it took to get "the" shot. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I can't rave enough about Still Life Studios and most of that has to do with our wonderful photographer, Cosette. She was incredibly professional & talented. She amazed us by the length she would go through to get the best shot including scaling tall walls & hauling equipment that weighed as much as she does! And she always had a way to make us smile. Her caring nature showed all the way through to the end product. All of our photos were even better than I had hoped for. The entire Still Life team was warm & inviting and make everything as easy as possible. I would highly recommend them.

He took my future husband and I for our private wedding pictures after the ceremony and we had a blast. The shots he took were amazing. We had so much fun doing it! At one time, he was on the ground, with his head upside down just so he could get the perfect angle. Everything about our experience with Still Life Studios was perfect.

Still Life did our engagement and wedding photos and they were always so helpful and flexible in making any adjustments we needed. Our photographer, Jaque, was so fun and positive to work with. I was so impressed with her professionalism during our wedding day, it couldn't have been easy because we had three sets of large families to be photographed! She also seemed to be in five places at once during the reception photographing all the different moments going on.

I'm so thankful for her upbeat attitude, even when I was worrying about time before the ceremony, she knew exactly what she was doing and it put my mind at such ease! She even climbed on top of a wall to get a fun angle for one of our pictures, amazing!

I'm so happy with my experience with Still Life studios; they were perfect photographers for a perfect day!

Still life was a great company to work with. I am extremely picky and always nervous about getting the perfect photos- it was really hard for me to let go and have someone else do the photo snapping on such an important day. But our photos turned out beyond amazing. Cozette was our photographer and she was wonderful. She is so kind and helpful with a very artistic eye- and was even able to make the groomsmen laugh. You wouldn't even know she was there and she would get the most amazing photos. Nate was our second photographer and got some priceless shots of my bridal party. It's a lot for me to say-- I wouldn't have changed a thing. People are constantly commenting on my photos, asking to see them again, and they all are in awe at how unique and amazing they are.

We had the pleasure of having Jacque as our photographer for both our engagement photo session and our wedding. She is absolutely AMAZING! The special moments she captured are irreplaceable and she would do anything to make sure everything turned out exactly how we wanted it to (such as climbing in a tree or laying on the grass). They are very flexible and totally capable of making things happen in any situation. The entire staff is so friendly and helpful and we couldn't have asked for a better group of people to capture these moments for us! We definitely recommend anyone in this amazing company to be a part of your event!

We LOVE Still Life Studios!!! Matt and the rest of the Still Life team are amazing! The humor alone is worth a photo session! We cannot believe how lucky we were to have such amazing photographers for our wedding!

Matt climbs walls, lays on the ground, and best of all is willing to make himself look completely goofy just to make someone laugh or smile. Our pictures are better than I ever could have imagined! My husband does not smile easily for pictures, but somehow he has that million dollar smile in every picture we've taken with Still Life! Even our friends were commenting on how much they enjoyed the photo sessions and would love to get family photos done with them!

We will be back, that's a promise! :-)

This company made our wedding! If you want to have a blast at your wedding, get a sugar booth!! This is the best photo booth ever!! Matt has busted his butt putting this booth together for us and it shows. Everyone at the wedding had so much fun and couldnt stop talking about how awesome of an idea the photo booth was. Matt took us under his wing, promising us the best experience ever and he SO stuck to his word. We just recieved our final prints yesterday from the wedding, they are amazing. Don't go any where else to look for photography, you will be wasting your time.

Still Life Studios did an amazing job! We loved everything about them. The whole staff there is very friendly and helpful and their work is just absolutley the best! They went above and beyond any expectations we had. Matt even laid on the wet ground (from the rain) and got what turned out to be our absolute favorite picture! Even though we started the wedding late (due to rain) and had to take most pictures indoors (again due to the rain) they turned out wonderful and worked with our time crunch and we got all the pictures we wanted! These photographers are all very good at what they do and I couldn't be happier with everything they did for us! I highly recommend them to anybody and everybody for EVERY occasion!

We LOVED Still Life Studios! Our photographer went above and beyond to make sure we got the best shots possible. She changed angles over and over, got up on rocks, laid in the grass... she even bustled my dress for me! We have some amazing and creative photos and the hard part is picking only 150 for our CD! We would highly recommend Still Life for any wedding. They really know how to capture those precious moments of your special day.

Our photographer was so full of energy and as nice as could be to work with. She knew how to get great shots, and she captured so many that we had trouble choosing which to print since they were all so good!

Still Life Studios brings an element to the service business that seems hard to find in recent years: personal care. Not only are the pictures incredible, but the fact that they personalize the experience by truly getting to know you makes the pictures and the experience that much better. Still Life's creative portraits are seen in nearly every shot as the angles for the portraits are more than pictures; they are a work of art of which you find yourself within. If there was ever a concern of mine or my wife, Still Life went above and beyond to not only clarify the situation but to make sure that we were truly happy with the outcome. This is a tough balance for a business, but they do it masterfully. The passion behind their business and the personal care for their customers makes this all possible. I would highly recommend Still Life to anyone for any occasion.

Everyone at Still Life Studios is wonderful! They are extremely talented, helpful and great to work with! So far we have just done our engagement session and our Save the Date magnets with them. Both of which turned out AMAZING! Our pictures are absolutely beautiful and our magnet is exactly what we wanted! They were extremely flexible throughout the process of both and continue to be. During our session, Matt actually got in the water to take some wonderful pictures. I will write another review once we have our wedding, but with what I've experienced so far, I can't imagine our wedding photos and experience to be anything less than amazing!

**Note- our wedding date is actually 10/15/2011, but I had to change it on here because it wouldn't let me submit this review since we aren't married yet. Because I have loved Still Life so much, I just couldn't wait to write this shining review :)

My wedding picutres turned out beautifully! Every shot was exactly what we expected. Our photographer we extremely professional. She was quiet at times which meant we didnt even realize she was there during the ceremony or reception, but were plesently surprised when we got to see the shots online. She seemed to capture everything we wanted without getting in the way of our intimate wedding. We had a 2 year old family member in our wedding and she knew exactly what to do to get his attention to get all the right shots. When we were discussing our wedding day, Matt had suggested to do a "first meeting". I was not sold on the idea, but after seeing previous pictures from other couples "first meetings" we decided to do it. I am very happy that they talked us into it because the pictures that came from it were exactly what I wanted and more!

I am beyond thrilled with everyone at Still Life! They took our engagement photos as well as our wedding pictures, and everything that I saw was lovely. The pictures themselves are gorgeous...exactly what I wanted, and when I look at them I remember the exact reason that I wanted Still Life to shoot my wedding in the first place - the style of the photography is just gorgeous, and not over the top while still being classy. We haven't gotten our album yet, but I am sure it will be just as beautiful as all of the pictures. As far as the service went, everyone was very professional, nice, and easy to get along with, and they were totally willing to listen to everything that we wanted. I could not be happier!!

The engagement photos we took with Matt was really fun! It gave us the chance we needed to get to know him and feel comfortable with him for the wedding! He has a certain way of breaking the ice and helping us to loosen up!

I would/will hire Still Life for any mile stone events that my family may go through! The quality of work that comes from Still Life is truly amazing! In saying that I would highly recommend them to anyone for their own wedding!! Take my word you will not be disappointed!!

Once we told Still Life they were more than happy to reschedule another shoot and it turned out AWESOME. Our wedding day was beautiful and all our photos were very "us" if that makes sense. We told the still life team what we wanted and they produced it. Not only did they contact viz phone but they responded to my emails very quickly! Love this photographer..if you don't use them your making a big mistake!

He never stops taking pictures at the wedding so it is pretty much guaranteed you will have 400 pictures you love! Very upbeat attitude and always on the ball. The videographer was amazing also. We received a highlights video as well as the full ceremony and the quality in both videos is out of this world.

Even though our engagement photos were good, I was concerned that our photographer wasn't going to be 'creative' enough on our wedding day. Matt the owner wanted to make sure we were happy, and really went out of his way to ensure we had great photographs. We were quite pleased with our wedding photos and the professionalism of this company. Of course, there is always going to be a couple of shots that were missed, but overall I loved the angles that the shots were taken at and the creative ideas of the photographers. I would recommend Still Life Studios to anyone. Nice job and super to work with. Thank you Still Life Studios for making memories!

The engagement session was great and got us very comfortable with the photographer for the wedding day. He was as unobtrusive as possible at the wedding but managed to get all of the shots that we wanted, and he worked well with all of the family members. Still Life called us to discuss our wedding album photo choices and after speaking with them, we decided to allow them more creative control. The result was an album much more fun and memorable than it would have been with our choices alone! We also did our videography through Still Life and are very happy with the final product in our video as well. We were pleased with the cost and the myriad of options available to you with Still Life. The staff is all very professional and nice as well. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photographer!

I am still tearing up just looking and remembering my daughters special day. I love how different the photos are now instead of standard, boring standing in line photos. Cosette was terrific and very unobtrusive during the whole thing. You didnt even know she was there as well as the videographer but the shots they took were amazing.

My husband and I were married on May 1, 2010 and Still Life Studios was the company we used for photography. From the beginning they were absolutely wonderful! Right after I booked with them I received an e-mail congratulating us on our engagement and asking about a time for us to meet so we could go over our expectations for the photography at our wedding. We met with Matt the owner who is one of the nicest people I have ever met. He offered options we had never even thought of and offered services that made our lives so much easier and a lot less stressful. Our photographer's name is Jacque and she was just as wonderful as Matt. She is such a sweet person and she is truly phenominal at what she does. Our engagement pictures came out so great that we ordered our invitations through them. They were the most beautiful wedding invitations we had ever seen and all of our guests at the wedding said they had never seen anything so unique and brilliant. The day of the wedding Jacque was awesome. She is so fun and she took the most amazing pictures I have ever seen. We are so happy with them. Choosing a photographer for your wedding is so important because they are capturing the most important day of your life. Still Life Studios did a wonderful job and I would/ will recommend them to anyone looking for photography for their special day.

Matt, the owner of Still Life Studios I believe, was the contact for our initial consultation. He was very casual and fun. He designed our schedule for the big day from the moment we arrived at the venue, until the last song at our reception. He carefully explained all of our options including all of the extras and/or alternative services that were available with our package.

Kristen was my assigned wedding photographer. She was incredibly friendly as well as professional. She was there on time and stayed later than was expected.

My photo package included an engagement shoot as well as the wedding. I am unsure what the cost for the photographer was as the service was contracted through my vendor, however the price for extra prints seems average compared to other photographers in the area.

The pictures from both the wedding and engagement session were outstanding. Kristen captured so many wonderful moments that I'm having difficulty choosing which I will have printed. She even managed to get my Groom and his "tough guy" groomsmen to smile which is no small feat!

I would recommend Still Life Studios to any Bride and Groom. One of my guests is a tenured consultant at a popular bridal store and even she was amazed by Kristen. She has been handing out Still Life Studio cards to brides all week!

My husband and I were very impressed with Still Life Studios and our wedding day photographers. From our first meeting to our many questions about wedding day details they were very attentive. They answered all our questions and provided professional suggestions which we greatly appreciated. If I had to give an area for opportunity, I would have asked my picture requests be followed more closely. There was one of four requests I made I didn't get. Not the end of the world and we have a ton of beautiful pictures, but I am missing a couple I wished I had. Overall I would highly recommend Still Life Studios.

We had looked at many photographers before we stumbled across Still Life. I had an instant bond with Matt (the owner) the night we met and I knew very quickly that this company was the one for us.

We had Justin as our photographer and he was a PERFECT FIT.

OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION: It rained almost the entire time. Now this would ruin anyone's session, right? Not here! Justin kept our spirits up and went with the flow. He got very creative with locations and it went so well.

OUR WEDDING: PERFECT PERFECT!! Everything flowed very well even though we were running behind on time (which they told us would happen). And guess what?...It even started raining during family photos! :) But Justin kept everyone's spirits up. He made sure to capture everything we wanted and then some! My favorite part?....I never knew he was there most of the time. During the ceremony he wasn't up in front of our guests and getting in the way. THAT is a sign of a good photographer....one who can disappear.

OVERALL: Couldn't have asked for anything better!!!

He will do whatever is necessary to make you and anyone else in your pictures smile! (and I do mean whatever! even if it includes dancing and making random noises). I was so nervous to see how I would look in all the photo's as I so seldom like how my photo's turn out, but all the pictures he took came out amazing!

They really go out of their way to take amazing shots and get what you want. I have asked Matt to do a post bridal shoot and I am so looking forward to this shoot. Matt has such an amazing personality and smile that is so contagious! He has such a special family as well. Matt will definately be my photographer in the future and can't wait to start having kids for him to capture those special moments. (well they may get tired of me, I tend to bug them a lot ;) )

My husband and I were so pleased to have Matt from Still Life do the photography for our wedding. We were highly impressed with his energy, enthusiasm, and efficiency. Matt constantly asked if we were happy with the photos, changing angles and even putting himself in danger [standing on high walls ;) ] to get unique and artistic wedding photos. Our engagement shoot was so much fun, and it gave us a glimpse into the energy that Matt brought along with him. At the wedding, he got the oldest and grumpiest family members to laugh for photos, and managed to get so many great shots, it took hours for my husband and I to pick our favorite 150. He was simply wonderful and we are truly very grateful for the services. We would recommend Still Life to anyone!

Still Life Studios was absolutely perfect for my husband and I on our wedding day. Jackie knew how to get us to smile, and she didn't try to make us do anything we weren't comfortable with. She was great with my family and everyone loved her including my husband and I! Still Life always responded to my emails or calls so quickly that I felt like I was top priority even though I knew they had so many other clients to work with. I'd just like to thank each and every one of you there for the awesome experience you guys gave me!

Still life was so accommodating and their work was amazing. We worked with two of their photographers and both were awesome. Jackie did our engagement shoot and shot our wedding (along with one of their other photographers) and was so easy to work with. She made us feel so comfortable (both my husband and I are super camera shy), was so fun and was not in the way at all during the whole day. In the planning process we had one misunderstanding (our fault) and Matt the owner went way out of his way and way above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and happy. Thank you everyone at Still Life!

All I can say is WOW. Let me start by saying that I am very camera shy and these guys really got me out of my shell! Our first meeting was excellent. We were very comfortable and I think that should be a requirement for picking a photographer. You can't be yourself and take your best pictures if you don't "like" the people you hire. Still Life Studio's was a perfect fit for us as I am sure they are for many brides and grooms. All of our friends commented about how amazing our pictures were. Another thing I really appreciated was that they don't hold your prints hostage like I've heard people say of other companies. It seems that Photography can make or break in a wedding - you can get over bad food or a crummy DJ but the pictures last forever and we are 110% satisfied with the pictures that will be our memories forever! We can't wait to use Still Life for our baby photos! Thanks to everyone at Still Life Studio's for doing what you do and doing it so well!

Everything about our experiences with Still Life Studios was great. They did our save the dates which turned out really neat. I got to describe the design I wanted and they made a save the date design just for us. Everyone that works with the company is really nice and professional. Matt always kept us laughing and is really insightful about photography. SLS likes to do something called a first meeting session. Instead of waiting until the ceremony for the bride and groom to see each other, there is a special time before the wedding the bride and groom meet and the photographers photograph that time. It was so wonderful for many reasons. It was really nice to have a point before the ceremony where my husband and I just got to be alone and take in the moment together. The photographs matt took were all amazing and they captured such an emotional and beautiful moment. This also lets you take more photos before the wedding since you dont have to sneak around avoiding each other before the ceremony. Matt did a great job of taking both traditional and contemporary styled poses which was exactly what I wanted. They offer a lot of options for picture sizes, photo albums, and framing but we never felt we were pressured to have to buy anything. I highly recommend Still Life Studios.

I used Still Life Studios as part of a package deal with Regency Garden. I worked with Matt Wheeler one of the owners and he was amazing. During our picture taking friends and family kept asking me where we found him. The level of quality is unmatchable. He climbs wall, lays in the dirt, lays in the street, would stand on his head if you asked him to to take a picture. I have been in four weddings and mine was the fifth involving a photographer. My pictures are beyond breathtaking. I was concerned that I might not like them because I don't always like how I look in photos. I could not have been happier when I saw my pictures. They don't just do the boring group photos, they had us walking in the street, standing against garage doors, by iron gates, you name it we did it. The pictures are beautiful and they wouldn't have been with another photographer. We also did the videographer with them and he was just as amazing. I have not seen the video yet but I know it will be awesome based on the way he was taking the footage. I would not change a thing about using them.

Matt and his team are awesome! I have the BEST wedding photos I have ever seen! My coffee table album is stunning! It was worth every penny and Matt really put effort into every shot he took!

Even after our wedding we still use them for our daughter, family shoots, and Christmas cards. I STILL get compliments on her birth announcement and she is almost 8 months. Be careful though, Matt will do ANYTHING to make you laugh! He managed to make my family of 50 all laugh! (AND 30 of those members are under the age of 10!)

If you want jaw dropping photos, this is your Crew.

I highly recommend Matt Wheeler and his team of photographers at Still Life Studios. We booked with them as part of an all-inclusive package at the Regency Garden, and I feel so lucky that we stumbled upon them in that manner. First, of course, the wedding pictures were gorgeous! My husband and I both tend not to be crazy about pictures of ourselves, so I was worried that we wouldn't love our wedding photographs. However, Matt and Jacque were incredible, the pictures are the best pictures I've ever seen, and our friends and families can't stop saying how amazing they are. In addition, Matt and Jacque are both incredibly fun and energetic people, and they had everyone laughing and having a great time that day (even when we were standing in the June heat taking pictures in dresses and tuxes). Every time I meet with Matt I am struck by what a great person he is and how much he loves his job. You can tell that he truly wants to give each couple their ideal wedding pictures, and he is great at doing just that. My husband and I have already decided that we need to go back to Still Life Studios for family portraits as our family grows. I sincerely cannot say too many good things about Still Life Studios! You will love the results!

Still Life did a fantastic job. They provided us with an engagement session so that we could become comfortable with our photographer. We liked the photos so much that we made them into our save the date magnets which we didn't intend to do originally. The day of the wedding was probably the windiest day in Phoenix in a long time, so photographs were tricky because hair and dresses were flying....but no worries, Nate did a great job! Our photos turned out beautiful and I cannot wait for them to be ready for me to pick up!

Still Life Studios has been one of the most wonderful vendors we used for our wedding. The owner, Matt, is incredibly flexible and understanding, and they all worked so easily with us when we had scheduling conflicts.
We had wonderful photos taken for our engagement session, and our photographer for the actual wedding day, Justin, was phenomenal. I had no idea how many pictures he actually took until we got to see them all after the wedding!
Our package came with our venue, but the upgrades we made were very reasonably priced, and the studio team has been great about communication on how to make our wedding album look beautiful!

Thanks Still Life Studios! You were wonderful!

We feel very lucky to have found Matt and his wonderful team of fellow photographers. The service we received was amazing and the quality of our photographs is more than we could have ever asked for. My husband and I have received so many compliments on wedding and engagement photos, and we plan to use Still Life again for all of our photography needs. Matt was a blast at our wedding and made everyone look simply amazing in the photos, especially me (the bride). Matt has a ton of energy and makes everyone feel comfortable having their pictures taken. We had a very large group of people who love to dance at our New Year’s Eve wedding and Matt was in the middle of the dance floor dancing with us and taking pictures at the same time. Simply amazing results! We have a ton of awesome action shots!

Thank you Matt and Still Life Team for making our wedding so special. We will have beautiful pictures of our special day for the rest of our lives thanks to you. We can’t wait to take our Holiday photos this year with you!

Matt and his team did a fantastic job at our wedding. They were open to our ideas but full of plenty of their own that weren't the standard wedding photos. They accommodated last minute decisions, rain and even stayed later into the evening at our last minute request. They were a fun addition to our wedding guests.

We used this company as part of an all inclusive package from our venue. They were very easy to work with and the staff was very friendly. I really loved my photos from that day and my husband and I were happy with how our photos turned out. The only thing I wish they had suggested to me was to make sure to bring a nice hanger to hang my wedding dress from on the day of (as they take a lot of photos of your dress hanging against different backdrops). I didn't really think of them doing this so I wasn't as happy with those photos (I had a stunning dress hanging on a not so stunning hanger). Small suggestions like these would be very helpful to clients. Overall, we were very happy though!

Still Life has a great package as part of the Vendor Experience offered through Seville Golf and Country Club. We had Matt as our photographer and he was just great. He had a wonderful personality and really worked hard to ensure everyone was at ease during our wedding photographs. We really enjoyed our engagement photo session and were pleasantly surprised by how many photos were taken. Matt made sure to ask us which poses we liked and which we didn't so he would know which shots to capture at the wedding. We really liked how quickly the photos went at the wedding and felt there were many great shots to pick from. The only thing that we were not 100% thrilled with were the individual shots taken of our guests at the ceremony and reception. We would have preferred to have group shots of our guests taken at the reception since we don't want individual photos of each of the guests. We felt we got most of the shots we wanted, but wished there were more "in the moment" and group photos to put in our album. We love the coffee table album that Still Life is putting together for us and would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional and friendly photographer.

What an amazing group of people! I have to say, I was blown away by the amazing service I received at Still Life. Matt and his team were attentive, flexible and wonderful to work with. We decided to use our engagement shoot for our invitations...BEST DECISION EVER! They were flawless. We now have an extra keepsake we will treasure forever. Justin Starr was our photographer and we loved him. Not only did he make us feel totally comfortable and relaxed, the pictures turned out better than I could have ever hoped. It was amazing to see how he managed to capture every great memory we had from the day. He was so warm and professional, everyone commented on what a pleasure he was. The service you receive at Still Life is top notch and I hope I have another reason to use them again very soon. Thank you Justin, Matt, Jennifer, Cosette and the entire Still Life team.

Overall very satisfied. I was bummed that we didn't get more pics at sunset and that they didn't get good pics of my super cute flower girl and ring bearer together but that could've been more our fault in not specifying. Still Life was part of a package through Seville (where we got married) and overall it seemed like a great deal - based on comparing it to prices I saw at the bridal show. I was a bit taken back at the cost of the digital wedding CD - especially since we had already purchased the engagement photos (which come on the wedding CD). In hindsight, I'd recommend waiting until the end and ordering all at once because you essentially end up paying twice for the engagement pics the way we did it. It'd just be hard to wait that long for your engagement photos. Matt seems to run a great operation and is very customer oriented. Cosette was our photographer and she seems to have an eye for the artistic detailed shots.

We would recommend StillLife and would use them again.

The company itself is extremely professional and our photographer, Jacqui, was fun and sweet and very helpful. During our consultation, however, I was insulted by the business owner and was almost to the point of giving up on them and finding another photographer.

Once we met the lady who would actually be shooting the wedding, though, we definitely changed our minds. We feel honored to have had such a talented photographer do our wedding. We highly recommend Jacqui!

Included in the photo package we had with our vendor was 6 hours of photography, a 30-minute engagement session, a book of 150 prints and the same images on a CD, which were good value for the money.

You guys were great to work with and Jacque loves you both! Your wedding was so well done and our team commented on how cute your various decorations were. You have a great eye! Glad to hear you were able to experience one of the greatest things about Still Life Studios - and that is we have multiple photographers who are trained in the Still Life style, and in those rare instances where personalities conflict, we can switch photographers quickly. I am so sorry I offended you but I am super happy you loved what we were able to provide. Thanks for being such a great couple to work with. We hope to be your photographers for life ... even if you don't choose me. :) - Matt Wheeler

Matt is amazing. I love his work, he is fun, easy to talk to and work with... He responds very well to questions, concerns, advice. We didn't like our first engagement shots, and they re-did them, no questions asked. They captured amazing moments, feelings, and certainly the "love in action" at our wedding. They did not do as well with the "professional, staged" photos. However, we didn't ask for that as much. They were very happy to do what I asked them, I just wish, in the moment, I knew to ask for specific shots.
The cost is a bit high, and be prepared to pay A LOT up front. They also demanded that you go over the timeline of the wedding with them, immediately upon signing the contract. We booked a year in advance with them, so it was stressful to try to figure out the times. This later posed a stressful problem but it worked out well with Matt's help.
We are VERY happy with our pictures. They are amazing. We also get to do a Dirty Session with them, which is an after the wedding shoot doing fun things in our wedding gear. It's something totally personalized and it's going to be awesome. I'm very pleased with the crew, the services they offer, the finished product and their overall professionalism. Just know going into this that it is pricey, and that you have to ASK for what you want.

First off, let me say the final product was great, there were just some obstacles on the path to get there that I am going to highlight. They do a great job of putting together a beautiful package in the end.

I don't remember our photographers name (sorry), but it was not the owner (Matt) who had been recommended to us. Our photographer was fine at picking good angles and taking good pictures...what he lacked was creativity. Every pose and location for the engagement session seemed pre-determined and cookie-cutter. At the wedding, a location he admitted never having shot before, he didn't really look for interesting locations/positions based on the surroundings. Instead, he seemed to be going through a list of standard poses. I would have preferred someone with an artistic eye in addition to the ability to use a camera well. The upside is that, after I realized that I would have to step in, he was willing to work with my suggested poses/locations. We had a beautiful venue and we still under-utilized it because it took me too long to realize that I needed to take control...not something I should have had to focus on, on a day like that.

The plus side is that they do a fantastic job in production of the photos and, like I said, the guy knew how to use a camera he just lacked an artistic eye.

Make sure you read the contracts and agreements carefully, though. They are poorly worded and many things are under-defined. We had a few sticking points where he indicated that we misunderstood what was "intended" in the documents. If this is a legal/binding agreement, "intent" should be overridden by clear and concise language. He wasn't being dishonest, its just confusing as to what you will and won't get. Maybe things have been cleared up since then.

Still Life Photography took the photos for my October wedding this year. While the pictures that we did get ended up AMAZING, I was a tiny bit disappointed when I saw there was no picture of my dress hanging up prior to the ceremony. The photographer was really great though. He engaged our bridal party, and the kids in the wedding to make sure everybody had great shots. Overall, I would reccomend them to a friend. I just wish that one picture had been taken.
