''I don't know what we would have done without Matt!! I was so nervous that our wedding wouldn't be everything I dreamed of because we found out 3 months prior that we were expecting! I was so self-conscious about my expanding waist line and fuller cheeks that I seriously considered allowing no photography... crazy I know, but that is how self-conscious I felt. I emailed Matt all my concerns, and I will tell you this- not only did he take my feelings seriously, he captured me, my husband, and my future daughter more beautifully than if I had had the waist and jaw-line of my dreams. The pictures came back last week and I breathed a sigh of relief and felt happier than I could have ever imagined... there were a lot of pregnant happy tears involved for sure.. Matt coordinated the entire day perfectly- he had my husband and I do a "no-look first look" that took my breath away, a first-look with my father that I wish cherish the rest of my life, and post-dinner beach pictures with just me and my husband that will be featured all over our house for years to come. He is so FAST, you barely realize he's there. There was ZERO pain in any part of the process, if anything- Matt just felt like one of the guests because he was so stealthy about where he stood, when he took pictures, and how he interacted with us. It was raining during the ceremony, so we had to change where we did the family portraits, the cocktail hour, and the timing of our beach pictures. Matt made it seem like NOTHING changed and everything was exactly the way it was supposed to be. You can see the wheels turning in his head when he positions you or the group to make sure he gets the best shot and when he takes the shot, it's over in 2 seconds and he got 10 pictures. Everyone at the wedding was amazed by him, and I was so comfortable and happy. MATT WE LOVE YOU. '' - Kate Peter
''My husband and I got married two weekends ago at Jennette's Pier and used Matt Lusk as our photographer for the wedding. He was absolutely AMAZING!!! I have not even seen our wedding pictures yet, and am already wishing that I could give this review more than 5 stars. Matt is truly a genius in his field and is by far the best photographer on the east coast (just take a brief look at his portfolio and you will instantly be sold)! Matt was so fun to work with and had amazing ideas for our photos. My entire family loved him and would hire him again in a heartbeat. Matt Lusk is worth every penny you will spend and I would highly recommend him for your next event! :) '' - Megan Goddard
Matt was fantastic. He blended in with all our friends and did a great job of getting some amazing candid shots as well as posed shots. The quality of the pictures is second to none and captured the day perfectly. We received a link to all the photos in less than two weeks! We really feel like when we got Matt, we got the best of the best. Mary Beth and Michael
We researched lots of photographers on the Outer Banks and are so glad we went with Matt! He was so calm and professional on the day and got the most amazing shots. He had researched our wedding location beforehand and talked to us about timings for the best light so that all the shots would go smoothly on the day. Our wedding was a bit chaotic on the day and he was brilliant about keeping us on track and getting all the shots we wanted without being intrusive. I am so happy we chose to work with Matt - I only wish we had had the budget to have him even longer on the day - we had 5 hours but would love to have had more. If I could do it over I would save more budget to be able to cover a longer period - it is definitely worth it for the memories he captures! I also liked that Matt has a great portfolio of other work in addition to weddings so he brings a brilliant range of experience to his photography which is very useful for beach or outside weddings. Wedding photography can seem expensive at first but when you see the results it is definitely worth investing in and using an experienced professional like Matt ensures you have the best images to remember your special day. We loved Matt and would recommend him in a heartbeat! Thank you Matt, you did the most amazing job!
Matt Lusk is amazing! He did our engagement, portrait, and wedding and I could not be happier. He is easy to work with, very responsive, and his pictures are top quality. I could not believe how quickly he had our wedding pictures back to us. I would highly recommend Matt!
"Matt Lusk and his assistant were the best!!! They were so laid back and flexible and we felt like they were our friends- they were one of our favorite vendors!! They made the sometimes long task of taking a lot of photos so fun! Matt made sure to get the shots of all the families and the portraits but took time to make sure we got the funny ones with the bridal party that everyone loved! With all the chaos of the "getting ready" portion of the day Matt was so polite and patient with our bridal party (who tend to not always run on time) and ensured we got shots of every key moment!! He went to multiple locations with us to get the best shots! He took his time and was open to our ideas as well which was so nice! I cant wait to see all of our pictures! Having an awesome photographer especially one that fits in like one of your friends and can go with the flow on such a hectic day is key! Hire Matt you wont be disappointed!!" ~Leah Humphrey

''Matt Lusk was honestly amazing and one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. When my fiance and I attended the OBX bridal show we had no clue which direction to head for photography. After meeting Matt, and hearing from other people over and over again how great he was, we decided to book him for the big day. On our wedding day he was so professional, relaxed, and fun. His positive energy was contagious and it was apparent he loved his job and was there to make sure everyone else was comfortable and happy. Everyone from the groomsmen, to the bridal party, to my parents commented on what a cool, talented person he was. When I finally got the photos back (super quick!) I couldn't believe how unbelievably AMAZING they were. It was everything I hoped for and I actually cried happy tears looking through them the first time. There were so many beautiful bridal shots, bridal party shots, pictures I didn't even remember happening, and shots of all of our guests having a blast for everyone to enjoy. He even whisked us away to do a few outside shots in the sprinkling rain. I am so happy because they turned out to be my absolute favorite! I had no idea they could still look so beautiful on such a rainy day. I've gotten SO many comments on what gorgeous photos and an amazing photographer I had. The best part was, after the week had already passed, Matt even offered to do a trash the dress session next time I'm at the beach since our beach ceremony was rained out. Long story short- Matt Lusk is the best, and we couldn't have asked for someone better to capture the day for us.'' - Lauren Esola

"Choosing Matt Lusk as our photographer was the very first decision my fiancee and I made in planning our OBX wedding, and, now that the day is done, is still the best decision we made in the entire process. To start, Matt's pictures are absolutely amazing. He was able to capture candid, emotional moments throughout the day as well as artistic, breathtaking pictures of the setting and our wedding party. The variety and quality of photos we got is unmatched. He was so flexible to work with as we planned our wedding, and truly a calming force on the day of. From the moment he walked in the door to meet my bridesmaids and I, he was professional, relaxed, and above all a TON of FUN to work with all day. He took goofy photo requests from my wedding party in stride, and he has an eye for locations and poses that made our pictures really unique. His personality meshed so well with our family and wedding party, and working with him really felt natural. You could tell how comfortable and happy we were in every photo. I knew when we chose him that our pictures would be beautiful. What pleasantly surprised me was how quickly he got our pictures edited, up online, and ready to go. We were barely back from our honeymoon when he emailed me saying they were ready! I cannot recommend him highly enough. Truly, my review feels so inadequate for the amazing gift he has given us."  ~Kelly Harro

"MATT!  O MAN! You really out did yourself! I love each and everyone so much. My productivity at work today has gone down to zero lol. I cant wait to look at them tonight with Andy and show them to my dad. I love how warm them all are- they touch a special place in my heart!
Thank you time a million" ~Jadia Beckius

"Hey Matt!  We looked through the pictures this weekend and all I can say is WOW! I will admit, over the last several weeks I have seen so many amazing beach shots, with the sun setting or with some amazing collection of clouds in the background, and I have told Ray "I can't believe we weren't able to get these shots!" but after seeing these, well WOW! You did such an amazing job and I am so happy we choose you to capture our day! My only regret is not hiring you for a longer period of time. We will be sure to write a review for you. Congratulations to you and your wife on the expected arrival of your son! We wish you all the best!!!!"~Rebecca Borowitz

"Hey Matt!  We absolutely love all of the pictures! You captured everything perfectly and were so great to work with!! We wish we could go back and do it all over again! It's going to be so hard to choose which ones we want to print! :)  Thanks so much again!! Have a great week as well!"~Danielle Llewellyn

"Hi Matt!  Wow the pictures are so incredible! Thanks again for everything you have done for my family and for capturing every moment on the best day of my life!!"  ~ McKenzie White

"Matt!  These are beautiful!! We love them all and are so excited to see them and relive the day! You and Annie captured our personalities perfectly and it's great to see that we looked as happy as we felt. We're going to think about the album, but in the meantime, we'll share the link with our family and friends.  We'll be in touch!  Thanks again for everything! We hope to run into you at the beach sometime this summer." ~ Emily and Karl

"Hi Matt!  I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thank you so much for posting these so fast.. just in time for Christmas and the holidays coming up.

Please send us more pricing info about larger prints,canvases, etc.  Thanks again and God Bless!"  ~ Frances and Mark

"Hi Matt,  I LOVE THE PICTURES! You do beautiful work. I will probably be the one to use the thumb drive, Elizabeth and John are most likely all over the website. That said, if you are mailing the thumb drive early next week, it should arrive when we are in Charlotte for the holiday weekend.  Thanks again so much for capturing the treasured memories. We will be in touch for purchases! Until next time, stay safe and well. Happy Thanksgiving!" ~ Sally Johnson

We will for sure be in touch about ordering prints and the photo albums.  Thanks again!! :)" ~  Jessica Gossett

"Hey Matt!  I was just talking about my pictures this weekend & how I couldn’t wait to see them! Lol. They are amazing!!!! We love them so much!! I’ll look over the book information today when I get a few more minutes.  Thanks for the amazing pictures! We had such a fun time working with y’all & definitely plan to use you again the future!  Thanks for everything!" ~ Michaela McCain

"Hey Matt!  Ive looked through them like 7 times now. I just can't stop. I ordered almost 300 4x6 to get us started. From there I am going to order more and more sizes and also decide which ones to put in the photo book. This is fun!!!" ~ Mary Cake

"What a wonderful one month anniversary present!!!!!! WE LOVE THEM!!!!!!! I can't thank you enough for such amazing images that capture the emotions of the entire day. We're pretty sure we found a picture of every person in attendance...!!! We will probably order an album, but it will take me forever to decide on pictures :) . We'll be in touch. In the mean time, do you get reviews through any particular website? A few vendors have sent links, so wanted to see if you had a site that we could leave comments. And/or, if any future clients are looking for references, we'd be happy to share our wonderful experience with you guys!  Thanks again!" ~ Kara Greenfield

"I have one word: DUDE! Haha. You and Jess really did an amazing job. We're totally thrilled and you guys were an absolute blast. I would highly recommend you to another bride."  ~Katie Lewis

"Hey Matt!  Wow. Your work is seriously incredible! We could not be happier with our pictures! Thank you so, so much for capturing the day and all the fun! We absolutely loved all the candid shots and the beach ones turned out beautiful.  Thanks so much again for making our day even more enjoyable. Next time we're in OBX we'll have to grab breakfast!" ~ Katie & Jeff

"Thank you so much for the beautiful pictures and capturing the moments of our day!! They are all fabulous!" ~ Ashley Kremer

"The pictures look absolutely wonderful! Thank you so much for capturing such beautiful shots of our perfect day. The variety of settings and weather we got pics of is truly incredible. Your pictures capture the joy and emotion of the day so well; we could not be more thrilled."  ~Kelly Harro

"Holy crap - these are AMAZING! You can guarantee I'll be passing the link along to family and friends as soon as I'm done crafting this e-mail.
Can't thank you enough - hopefully other friends of ours will jump on the OBX wedding bandwagon so we can pass your name along. Steve is an avid reviewer in the Trip Advisor world (such a loser!), so let me know if there's specific sites that could use a gleaming review from us!" ~ Amanda Brienzo

"Matt and Ann Taylor,  I have not had the opportunity to write to you but we received the albums. I can not believe how beautiful they are. Everyone has been raving about the pictures. I actually got "in trouble" because they were so great. Two of Marc's family members were talking about how beautiful mine were as they were looking at Marc's brothers wedding pictures. His wife was not very happy....not my fault they were so nice! Please let me know if you need a review or anything I would be happy to do one for one.  Thanks again for EVERYTHING. We will have these memories forever thanks to you!" ~ Sara Cruz

"We had an amazing time and appreciate your relaxed & professional attitude for our wedding. It was unforgettable and wouldn't change a thing!  Thanks again!" ~ Paula Wittsack

"Thank you so much!! I have to say your photos have made my mom (and others) cry-they truly reflect the day and I love looking at all of them! Your photos share the wedding for all of our family and friends who were not there. I can't thank you all enough for capturing all the moments, making us (who hate pictures) feel comfortable and giving us something we can treasure and always remember." ~Lauren Molesworth

"I knew after looking at Matt's portfolio that he would be the one photographing our big day. All of his images looked sharp and crisp to me and his attention to detail was obvious in his wedding and surf pictures. John and I met him and his wife Ann Taylor for engagement shoot which was painless (for John) and perfect for our save the dates. It also let Matt get to know our style and John get used to the camera! Our wedding pictures are beyond what we expected. We got them back so quickly and we have receive so many compliments on them! The day flew by and I wish I could re-live that day over and over again. I often go through my wedding Facebook album and I catch myself smiling remembering all the little moments. Matt and Ann Taylor did a great job capturing the most important day in our life from beginning to end. We will always have these special pictures and I couldn't thank the Lusk's more for everything they did and how special they made our day!" ~ Paige & John Bayliss

"Hi Matt,  Wow, I don't even know what else to say! I've looked at the pictures 1,000 time and love them more and more with each look! They are PERFECT! You and Anna truly capture all our special moments. I'll forever be saying thank you! All the pictures are seriously- AMAZING. I laugh, smile, cried and repeat as I look at all of them. I have no clue how I will picture the pictures for the album. We do plan to make a album and I will send the form filled out soon. We are so excited.  Thank you again for EVERYTHING! You all are the BEST!" ~ Jaime Uss

"Hi Matt!  I don't know where to even begin after seeing these pictures! Every single picture is breathtaking and they are more than we could have ever dreamed of to document our union in marriage. I barely slept last night looking at these and reminiscing of our wonderful wedding day. They belong in a magazine they are so "picture perfect"!  I have been to a lot of weddings and have catered many weddings in the past 8 years and you and Annie were absolutely amazing and the best I have ever seen! Your attention to detail, professionalism, artistic eye, and fun personalities made you a pleasure to work with. You wouldn't believe how many people from the wedding told us that you all were fantastic photographers and they couldn't wait to see pictures! I can't wait to hear how much they love the pictures just like we all do!  Thank you doesn't do justice to how appreciative we are for all you did for us. These pictures will last forever and will always tell a story of our amazing day! I know that we will love them in years to come even more than we do today! We are so thankful we chose you to be our photographer and words can't express how unbelievably wonderful every single photo is!  I got your email link yesterday while I was driving home from Charlotte to my parents house 4 hours away for Addy and Silas's birthday party today and forwarded the message to Mom, Dad, and Matt. Let me tell you, that was the longest 4 hours of my life! They were all calling and telling me how phenomenal they were! Mom said she and Dad were crying again looking at them, Matt was calling to tell me how there wasn't a single bad photo out of the 1033, and he loved them all while I was forcing myself to not pick up my phone to look at them while I was driving. Whenever I finally made it home, I ran straight to the computer and stayed up most of the night looking at them. I have no clue how I am going to choose favorites because I love each of them!  We will recommend you guys to any and everyone, and I do not think anyone in the world takes better pictures than you! Thanks again Matt and Annie! You all are amazing to work with and did a superb job as our photographers!!" ~ Tara & Matt Ketner

"Matt & Ann Taylor,  We don't even know where to begin this email! Our wedding day was absolutely the best day ever and looking through the pictures we felt like we were reliving it all over again, you captured it so beautifully. We can barely put in to words how amazing the photos are! Jeremy and I spent hours going through all of the photos in awe of how beautiful they are and laughing hysterically at all the party pics! You guys were everywhere that night and we are so thankful! There are so many moments during the day and night we weren't a part of and to see pictures of it all, is just awesome! I don't know how many times we said, "I love that picture". Your work is beautiful, you both are extremely talented and we are going to treasure these forever. You have been amazing to work with and we can't thank you enough!!" ~ Carrie and Jeremy (Jones!)

"Hi Matt!  The photos are fantastic!!! I can't count how many hours we have spent looking through them over and over again! :) Thank you and Anne so much for the wonderful photos and for being so great and easy to work with. Michael and I couldn't be happier!  Thanks for the ordering/album information as well, we will look at this too.  Thank you, thank you, thank you"~ Kara Fink & Michael Brooks

"We were blown away by your team work and talent when you photographed our wedding on 5/20/13. You helped us relax and enjoy the day as you captured beautiful photos that we will cherish for years to come. It was a pleasure spending the day with you both and we cannot thank you enough. We highly recommend Matt and Ann and could not be happier with what they captured from our wedding day."~ Lindsay & Lawson Newcomb

"Dear Matt and Ann,  Tom and I want to thank you again for all of your hard work at Erinand Gus' wedding. We couldn't be happier with the gallery....you captured this momentous event in our lives in a truly beautiful way.  So many of the images were completely a surprise, like opening a present with each click of the mouse!  There were some stressful points in the day and evening and I felt like a few of my "visions" were not realized.  Luckily I had good friends on hand to calm my angst and bring me around to the celebration and not the details.  As we have gone though the gallery of pictures I realized that
everything was beautiful.  You captured the wedding ceremony with respect, highlighted the loveand adoration the kids have for each other, and you showed everyonehaving a rip-roaring good time at the party... what a gift!  Thank you for lending your artistic abilities and fun spirits to making the day so memorable. It was a pleasure working with you both!  Wishing you the best of this holiday season." ~ Mary Ellen Greene (mother of Erin Greene)

"Dear Matt and Ann,  I would like to thank-you so so much for making my wedding day perfect! You both were so professional, but personable at the same time. My pictures were absolutely amazing and you both captured every moment possible and some! My family and friends were so impressed with all the pictures and how fast you were at getting them to me as well. I have had many e-mails and calls about how breath taking our pictures were. You both truly made our wedding day something we will never forgot! And we will definitely be recommending you both to our family and friends who are in need of fantastic photographers! Thanks again for everything! We couldn't have had a better experience with the both of you! Your awesome!  With much love
Whitney and Adrian Colaprete."~ Whitney Colaprete

"MATT!!! We are so beyond amazed by all the photos. We saved them to look at this evening, on our one month anniversary. They are fantastic and we could not be happier. We cannot thank you and Ann Taylor enough for the fabulous job you did. You guys have a gift! I mean seriously, every picture we are like,  ok, gotta frame that one too!  There are so many, we've decided to stop at the end of the ceremony pics and will save the reception pics for tomorrow night. I cant wait.  Thank you thank you thank you!!!" ~ Erin Buckley

"Matt and Ann,  Just wanted to express our gratitude and overawe for your photography on our special day. The pictures turned out amazing! We heard nothing but compliments from all of our guests and after reviewing the entire album, you guys earned every one of them! Your professionalism and work ethics were apparent on the day of and really showed in the results! You guys caught every moment and paid attention to the smallest minuscule details. Thanks so much for being a part of our wedding! Cheers!" ~ Whitney Joyner

"Matt-  WOW!!!! We cannot stop looking at the photos! They turned out fantastic. Thank you so much for coming out to the wedding and helping to make our day that much more awesome. There are so many favorites I can't even begin to list them. The blog post was really cool to see as well. You guys were so great to work with. We're happy to write some great reviews, let us know if there are specific websites you would prefer to have them on.  Thanks again!!" ~ Stephanie Bryl

"Thank you, thank you, thank you!  You may appreciate this so I thought I'd share . . . but I literally stalk your website. I don't like to admit it, but it's true and Dan calls me out on a daily basis! Aside from checking up on the Dan & Christy photos (multiple times a day), I am captivated by your blog, various pics and your comments - you are truly talented!! So . . . .Ironically enough my brother-in-laws fiance texted my this morning and said 'Decided to check in on your photographers site . . .Photos are amazing.!" Since I work from home and Dan was at the house at that moment, I ran downstairs screaming with excitement and we went through them together! They are amazing and we couldn't be happier with them! You and Ann Taylor caught all the emotions of the day! There are a good number of pics that when we saw them, we couldn't help but bust out in laughter; the dance shots especially. Likewise, there are those images that capture the meaning of the day. You all captured many moments that I either did not witness or was to involved to recall in detail, and it is amazing to see it all recapped and with such fabulous shots. I know you have more that will be coming our way in the photo gallery, but I'll tell you, if this was it, I'd still be a very happy camper! That is not to say that I CAN NOT WAIT TO SEE MORE! The shots of me and Dan, the first look, the rings/shoes/dress, me and my dad dancing, the wedding party, they are the wedding shots we wanted and they surpassed our expectations!! All of the others are the amazing extras that we are soooo excited and lucky to have! I have never met two families that are more into pictures, so the Borsts and Bisers are going to have a ball with all of these!  Much thanks to you both! We can't wait to see the rest and I'll be sure to let you know once we check them out!  Woohoo" ~ Christy Borst

"The pics are wonderful!! We are very happy!!! It was wonderful working with u & your wife!!!! Great couple u 2 make!!! Thanks Matt!! You have gotten lots of compliments on your work!!! Glad we found you and your wife to do the work!! You helped make it a very special day for us!!!" ~ Susan Price

"I LOVE THEM!! They are fabulous!! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!  Steve and I had a busy week and were looking forward to a quiet night at home this evening. Getting to go through all these pictures and relive our day was the best way to spend our Friday night!  We will Definitely be in touch about albums! ☺."~ Lisa Falone

"We were attracted to Matt Lusk photography as soon as we saw Matt's surf photography work. He is a master of landscape shots. He brings that same artistry and talent to the wedding scene, adds his beautiful wife; and they make an incredible team! Matt made the wedding photography experience seamless. From the moment we met, to the final delivery of our wedding photos, Matt and Annie were incredibly easy to work with. There was never a stressful moment with him behind the lens. He is patient, thorough, creative, obviously committed to his work, and genuinely one of the nicest people you could ask for. The pictures were stunning. They were the perfect mix of candid private moments along with the gorgeous posed shots that everyone needs. All the family members and wedding guests raved about how friendly and professional our photographers were, and when they saw the pictures, they were even more impressed. One of our guests commented that the pictures perfectly told the story of our day from start to finish. We had several fabulous vendors on our wedding day, but our photographers topped them all. We could not have been happier with our experience with Matt Lusk photography!"~ Melissa Pence

"Matt, Erin and Keiths wedding pics are incredible! I keep looking at them and smiling! You definitely captured the blissful moments!  Thank you for making our memories so special we absolutely love them!  Sincerely,  Karen Colby, mom." ~ Karen Colby (mother of Erin Filipovich)

"Matt,  We cannot begin to thank you enough for making our wedding so special and for capturing every minute of it in the most professional and amazing way. From day one, you were fantastic to work with and made us feel so relaxed and special. Our engagement photos have received more compliments than I could count and our wedding guests have just nonstop raved over your service. We loved working with you guys. Your creative spark, attention to detail and ability to capture our most special moments was over the top. I can not imagine a better photographer could exist. We are forever your biggest fans!!! We hope to one day bring our family-to-be down and work with you again:) Until then...cheers to the best on the beach!  Love, Katie and Tyler Jeffords"~ Katie Lapp

"Matt!! The pictures are awesome!! They turned out great. The sunset ones are pretty amazing. Can't wait to look at them today again. Thanks so much!!!" ~Courtney Everett

"Just checked out the pics...Wow! We love the pics!! You did an amazing job and we couldn't be happier with the results! Thank you so much for everything:)" ~ Jenn Phillips

"They look fantastic!!  It was a great evening captured by great photographs!  I appreciate your skill and your style.  Thanks so much!!" ~ Molly Krikke

"Your photos from Toni and Josh's trash the dress are fabulous. You really captured the love between them in some beautiful shots - surf, sun, blue skies, family photos with doggies, and amazing expressions. I have never seen Josh smile so much and you captured some of Toni's funny faces. We will have a tough time deciding which photos to get. Can't wait to see the wedding photos. But think these will be the favorites by far! Great job. We were all impressed with your technique on the wedding day and your patience with all the amateur photographers getting shots in. Good luck. Hope you get lots of future jobs from the enthusiastic reviews Toni should post!"~Lynne Cigal (Toni's Mother)

"While every wedding is "perfect" and every bride is beautiful, Matt and Ann did a truly fantastic job of capturing the moments, faces, events of our wedding day- both the candids and the posed photos were truly lovely. They were professional, fun and easy to work with, and above all, took AMAZING pictures down to the tiny details no bride wants to forget- but remembers only when reviewing the pictures. :) I would HIGHLY recommend their work; our wedding day is now not only memorable and in our minds, but also in our stunning picutres. Thank You!!"~ Eden Hintz

"OH MY GOD, Matt I LOVE them! I am soooooo glad we did this. My theory had been that if it rained on the wedding day, at least we'd have these; and rain it did! The lighting/ editing/ angles/ EVERYTHING is awesome. I can't wait to share it with Janet and Rick who booked you. I can't wait for the wedding ones. I can't believe how quickly you finished these; thank you! LOVE THEM ALL. :-) my mom said the pictures seem to "tell our love story" and we really think you did capture our love and fun in them! Showed a co-worker too and she "loved loved loved" them lol :-)" ~ Toni Cigal

"Matt, they're great! Thank you! We had so much fun and i'm really really happy with what turned out!! I keep looking at them over & over; i'm at work and i'm afraid my cube neighbors are starting to worry about me staring at myself =) I sent off your blog website to a bunch of my family; my hastily assembled list of initial favorites & your blog post had a lot of overlaps!  Thank you for this & i'm excited to keep looking at them over & over some more today!"~ Melissa Cook

"Hey Matt! I dont think I have emailed you since I have seen the pics on-line and gotten the DVD....not because I was disappointed but because I have been soo busy looking at the pictures over and over every day!!!!!!!!!!!!! They are awesome, you all did a great job :) Thanks again for everything, joe and my fam are really stoked on the pics and definitely captures the feel of the day!"~ Anna Butler

"OMG Matt!!! I just got done BALLING my eyes out! They are awesome and amazing. I just re-lived the whole experience over again. I wish that it didn’t seem to go by so fast…I want to do it again! Thanks so much again to you and Annie. I am so glad that you two were the ones who shared our special day with us and took our amazing wedding memories. You will be remembered and thought of forever!"~ Lindsay Johnson

"What beautiful photos - I knew when Lisa booked you for her wedding photographer she had made the right choice. After following your blog weekly and seeing the amazing photos you capture I knew the photos would be wonderful. After the wedding we spent a week vacation in OBX. We visited Jennetts Pier and saw your amazing photo of the surf on display. All I can say is WOW amazing photos you and your wife have captured not only of my daughters wedding but OBX photos. Thanks again - hope to see you again when we return to the OBX. Sandy Martin." ~ Sandy Martin

"We wanted to personally thank you for doing such an amazing job as our wedding photographer. We couldn't have asked for a better place to hold our wedding and honeymoon and you helped to capture that.  All of our guests commented on how professional you were and how you seemed to be everywhere all the time. It was especially nice knowing that you were doing your thing and we didn't have to worry about missing all of those special moments because we knew you'd get them. At no point in time did we feel like a camera was being pushed in our faces, yet you managed to photograph everything we could've ever wanted. And you were definitely fun to hang out with while Evan and his groomsmen were getting ready. Your easy going nature helped to keep him calm, even though you were hearing some of his more infamous stories :)  You and your wife really stood out for not simply being our photographers, but more importantly, a real part of our celebration. We can't thank you enough for helping make our special day as perfect as it was.  Thanks for everything."~ Lisa Martin
