While planning our wedding almost a year (!) ago, there were so many aspects and details to attend to, priorities to ensure were met, and just a lot to do!! I remember making a list of all that needed to be attended to, booked, and decided upon. One of most important pieces of the wedding for us was our photography. Pictures were something I wanted to hold on to forever and I was at a loss for who to call, what to ask for, and what prices were reasonable and doable. Reiss (the now husband:) mentioned he had a friend from college who did awesome extreme sports photography and weddings as well. So I checked out his blog and website and really liked his pictures and loved the ones from weddings he’d done in the past. They were extremely well done, contained all of the types of photos I would like at the wedding but had a unique flavor to them that brought them apart from your run of the mill “wedding pictures.” I liked that he had an organic approach to his work and his ability to capture natural emotion in his photos. They weren’t staged or fake. Thats what I wanted- real, unique and timeless….just like our marriage!
Reiss called Matt who’s based in Wilmington, NC and he was kind enough to drive to Asheville (6 hours away) not just for our wedding but also for our bridal shoot we took a few weeks before the wedding. His work phenomenal- so phenomenal our wedding is featured on Borrowed & Blue Asheville. Check it out here: http://www.borrowedandblue.com/asheville/weddings/jane-reiss
Matt was a blast to work with and produced images I’ll cherish forever. I know we’ll be calling him again to come hang out with us and for any pictures we would ever need in the future (baby pictures….someday)! So check out some of the work he did for us, and head to his Matt’s website or blog. If you give him a shout, he’ll be happy to make some amazing photos for you and have fun with you while doing it!
