What customers are saying about Matt Montalvo Photography

I gave Matt 5 stars for everything because that is exactly the type of service you receive when you hire him. A photographer was the main vendor I was most concerned about getting the best of, because pictures last a lifetime and tell the story of the whole day. I chose Matt from what I saw on his website and from reviews. He totally met AND exceeded my expectations! During our engagement pictures he made us feel totally comfortable. My groom is not one for picture taking and doesn\'t really like to \"ham it up\", but he said he was really glad we hired him because he just seemed cool and like one of our friends. During my Bridals he took beautiful pictures that accented me and my dress, as well as my personality. On the wedding day I was anxious to see how he would handle the crowd. We had a large wedding of about 500 guests, but I swear he somehow got at least one picture of every person there. I was so happy because there were people I didn\'t even see that day, and he captured their pictures. He captured all the little details that even I didn\'t even think of. I had people at the wedding telling me not only how beautiful the wedding was, but also that the photographer was awesome (I even had a couple girlfriend

I would highly recommend Matt Montalvo! He was the photographer at my sister\'s wedding a few years ago and the pictures that he took were truly amazing! I knew that at that point that I wanted him the be the photographer at my wedding. The engagement pictures that he took were fantastic, he is very fun to work with! It was very difficult to pick my favorites because all of them were so great! We recently got the photos from the wedding and they were to no surprise fantastic! Matt is a great photographer, he truly captures the moment and knows how to take those special shots. He is not your average photographer, you can tell that he is having fun and enjoys what he is doing. AMAZING!!!

If you\'re looking for a fun and professional photographer to make you feel comfortable on your wedding day, while taking the most amazing photos, look no further! Matt Montalvo is seriously awesome. He captured the most beautiful moments at my wedding and the pictures are amazing. I would recommend Matt to a friend or family member without hesitation. He has been very responsive and prompt since I first inquired about his services over a year ago. The package we purchased included a mini engagement session, where we got some awesome pictures for our save the dates. He made my fiancé and I feel incredibly comfortable during our engagement session and on the big day, which was great! We felt like we had known him for years. We regularly get asked who did our engagement and wedding photos because they are just beautiful! Matt is very professional, responsive, friendly and talented. He is 100% worth his prices. Seriously, look no further!

Matt Montalvo is simply the best! If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding look no more Matt is your guy! My husband and I talked about what is the one important thing that we absolutely wanted for our wedding and for me it was the venue and the photographer. I knew that I wanted Matt to be our photographer even before we set our wedding date. I have a couple of friends on Facebook that used him as their wedding photographer and their pictures were just spectacular and that’s when I knew I wanted him to be our wedding photographer. Matt is a very professional, kind, and a cool guy. He made us feel very comfortable during our mini engagement session and our wedding day. He got every shot we asked for and then some. My bridesmaids loved his personality and said he was a pretty cool photographer. When he first posted our “Sneak Peek” picture on Facebook we were so amazed on how great our picture looked and we could not wait to see the rest. He truly captured all the wonderful memorable moments during our wedding. Our whole family cannot stop commenting on how great and beautiful our engagement and wedding pictures are. As we were looking at our wedding pictures we both were so glad we decided to hav

Matt is the BEST!!! He did both our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. Matt is very professional and he gets back to you very fast, as well as editing the pictures too. After he posted a few pictures of our engagement pictures to facebook I asked him if he minded putting up 2 more and he had no problem doing it and had them posted by the end of that day. Matt is great at interacting with the guests and gets in the middle of the dance floor and everything and gets AMAZING pictures. I keep hearing from friends, family ,etc how great the pictures turned out. My husband is not the biggest fan of taking pictures and most of the time feels awkward taking them. He told me numerous times how he didn\'t feel awkward taking pictures. Matt is just fantastic at what he does and I would HIGHLY recommend him. Plus he has a great attitude as well. He works well with other vendors. Also if there is a picture you want of you and somebody at your wedding he will get it done. Use Matt!!!! I swear you won\'t be disappointed.

Matt was the best photographer we could have ever asked for. His skills are seriously unbelievable ! He was so accommodating and had so many great and fresh ideas for our engagement photos and our wedding photos. Both shoots for the engagement session and the wedding turned out with amazing results. The rain seemed to follow us from engagement all the way thru the wedding but he helped us reschedule our engagement session quickly and the wedding photos, you would have never guessed there was a tornado warning that night, they were perfect! He took extra time to show us previews of the pictures on his camera during both sessions, which (for a bride who doesn\'t like having her picture taken) was a huge sigh of relief to see how great they were turning out already. We knew from the first consultation and first time I saw one of his printed albums that we wanted him as our photographer and I sure am glad we got him! If you are even thinking about using Matt just take a look at some of his work and you will be hooked. And trust me, those few hours of your wedding go by so fast you will be glad you had such a great photographer there to capture your special day.

My husband and I have nothing but positive things to say about this man and his work! Matt is always on time, personable and professional. He does amazing work and gives great direction. He has lots of experience and was great about helping us with what to expect. We are happy to have him cover this special time in our life and would recommend the use of his services to others! He does amazing work and the prof is in the pictures, just check his website!

on May 16, 2013

I feel like I can sum this review up in 3 words...MATT IS AMAZING!!! I originally chose him because I was dropped a hint that he\'s a Texans fan, so I figured he must be an awesome person! I had met with other photographers before him, and their prices were outrageous...not to mention their skills just weren\'t as impressive for the price they wanted. Just looking at Matt\'s website, I knew he would be perfect!! And his pricing is so reasonable, and includes soooo much! Our engagement photos were awesome! He makes the session comfortable and fun (which can be hard with a camera pointed at you). My bridals were spectacular!! He made sure to showcase my gown, which is pretty hard since it was purple! The wedding photos are just amazing! He caught so many special moments perfectly! After the wedding, the entire bridal party kept saying how AWESOME my photographer was!! They all loved his personality and how he captured so many great pictures! I HIGHLY recommend Matt to all brides!!!!!!! He listens to anything you want and adds his magic touch and makes your day amazing! I\'m still staring at my pictures!! I just love them all!!!

by Jennifer

on May 16, 2013

I would recommend Matt to anyone. He is absolutely amazing! Matt was able to capture every moment from the second he arrived to the moment he left. He has the utmost respect for your special day, as his services are very professional. There is so much to worry about on the day of (of course you\'re nervous and want everything perfect), Matt is not only a photographer, but a friend to all his clients. He truly understands how to be committed to you and can even offer tips,recommendations, and even encouragement to get you through the stressful moments :) Matt fulfills your every expectation and then beyond! His photography is pure art, a mastered talent.

If there was an option for 10 out of 10 stars, I would choose that!! Matt was the most amazing photographer I could have ever hoped for, for my wedding. The main thing that I wanted to make sure I really searched for and did not settle for was our photographer. The second I met Matt, the search for our wedding photographer was over. He is so personable and his work is out of this world. He showed us some of his edits and we were just amazed!! First came our engagements, my husband and I had SO much fun!! Matt had such great ideas and we just laughed the whole day. The pictures came out great. I emailed Matt so many times with questions and he always responded right away. He even called me back once when he was on vacation! His quality of service is amazing and he is truly doing what he was meant to do. Then came my bridal portraits. He recommended a couple of places to take them and oh my goodness, the place we went to was beautiful! I could not have been happier with these pictures. Again, he did an amazing job! Just like the engagement pictures, that day was just so much fun!! My original day had gotten rained out and Matt was so flexible moving the days! Now for the big day. One word would describe this: Perfe

on May 16, 2013

Matt was my photographer for my wedding and engagement pictures. He was able to capture special moments that I will cherish forever. His enthusiasm was contagious on the day of my wedding. He was so excited about the pictures and was not afraid to show us right then and there to make sure we were satisfied. Matt knew we didn\'t want to waste a lot of time with taking family pictures. He was able to take some amazing photos very quickly. It also started raining during our outdoor reception and Matt was kind enough to show us a radar of the \"storm\" on his phone. Fortunately it was a tiny speck and it only sprinkled. Matt was very quick with editing the photos and was done when we were still on our honeymoon. His editing is phenomenal. He is a pro at using different techniques and he even edited out the minister so during our first kiss it is just the bride and groom and also edited scars from my knee for the garter shot. I would absolutely recommend Matt to anyone and I would hire him for any event that required photography.

by Crystal

on May 16, 2013

Hiring Matt was possibly my best vendor choice. He was prompt, fit in well with the guests, took all shots requested, was friendly whenever making suggestions, knew a lot about what would look best and kindly offered advice, and so many other great characteristics. He might be a little pricey, but you are getting what you pay for. I would recommend everyone hire Matt for their wedding.

by Macie

on May 16, 2013

Matt is amazing and the one vendor we trusted the most. We knew his work would be outstanding and we just love his personality. He was always quick to respond to our emails and put us at ease. We booked him at our first meeting because we knew someone so talented would be booked quickly. Everyone loved our engagement pictures and he captured the best moments at our wedding. We can\'t thank him enough for capturing the candid moments that meant the most. Our photos were online in less than a week and were honored to be on his Facebook. Matt is the best!!!!

by Jennifer

on May 16, 2013

I picked Matt to be our wedding photographer before we even picked a venue, thats how much we wanted Matt for our special day!! I had seen Matt\'s work from another wedding and completely fell in love with his work! Each picture he took said a story about the wedding day and you can see everyone\'s emotions come through the picture. He was great and I definitely would use him again whenever I would need amazing photos! He books fast so make sure if you want him to contact him quickly!

by Esmerelda

on May 16, 2013

My husband and I actually met at my sister\'s wedding where I was the maid of honor and he was the best man. Matt Montalvo was the photographer then. We loved him and his work so much that we scheduled our wedding date around his schedule. He is simply fantastic and a true artist! He captures every moment of our wedding beautifully and we have so many gorgeous photos to remember our special day. I would highly recommend Matt Montalvo as your wedding photographer! He is the best!

by Rivann

on May 16, 2013

Matt did an amazing job on both of our engagement & wedding photos. I can\'t stop looking at the pictures; he is very talented, humble, and professional. When I met him in our first meeting, he was very helpful and provide us tips on questions to always ask a photographer. I have never had pro pictures done and he made us feel at ease on all the photo shoots. Bottom line, he was my top vendor and you get a top quality product.

by C.D. Barnes

on May 16, 2013

Our wedding pictures are stunning! Matt does great work. And on top of that, he doesn\'t cost and insane amount of money like most photographers. He has great ideas for pictures; my favorite is the group photo he got of us with all of our wedding guests. But he\'s also great at capturing intimate moments, like my husband and I during the last dance of the night. I don\'t have anything negative to say about the work he did for us.

by Nicole

on May 16, 2013

Matt is a fun, creative, talented and professional photographer. We had seen much of Matt\'s work prior to making our final selection but once we met Matt we knew he was the perfect person for us! He was laid back and fun while still being perfectly professional. The turn around time was incredibly quick and we were beyond thrilled with the pictures. As we looked at all the pictures we were amazed that he not only captured every moment imaginable, he was able to translate the emotion, joy and energy of those moments to perfection! We could not be happier that we entrusted Matt to document this magical event for us and he did so by creating beautiful works of art to supplement our memories!

by Madaline

on May 16, 2013

We hired Matt for our engagements, bridals and day-of and couldn\'t be happier with his work. He has an amazing eye - he can transform a setting that you remember being just your everyday place into something breathtaking and absolutely amazing. His artful eye, editing skills, and professional quality aren\'t all the we were thankful for either. He is such a sweet guy and very patient, fun, and open-minded. He was very willing to do a couple photo ideas I had come up with and made them turn out great! Our wedding was a little crazy and for a guest count of almost 250 there was some drama. Matt kept it together, was an ease to work with and was so patient and understanding. Even with the large wedding, he captured so many awesome photos among the ones I asked for. Friends and family have enjoyed going through them. I have had nothing but compliments. With that said, my husband and I have nothing but compliments for Matt Montalvo Photography! He is awesome!

by Tessa

on May 16, 2013

After the wedding is said and done you are left with the memories of the day and the pictures.Matt is truly an artist that captures the feeling of the moment in his pictures. I cannot say enough good things about having Matt as my photographer! I was absolutely amazed by the proofs of my wedding pictures. Matt is not only great at his job but such a nice guy :-) I will continue to use Matt in the future for photography needs. I honestly have not seen a bad picture from him!! I am so glad I hired Matt and would highly recommend him!!! Thank you again Matt!!

We first heard about Matt Montalvo from our venue coordinator who showed us some of the awesome work he had done at our venue and promoted him as one of the best photographers they work with on a regular basis. We were initially really impressed with the consistent quality of Matt\'s work. When we contacted him he was super personable and humble, yet still very confident in his ability and experiences. We were pleasantly surprised to see that he was laid back and easy to work with and communicate our ideas. Matt was also very responsive to our emails and questions throughout the wedding planning process and even spent a long time on the phone with me at one point, talking through what would be the best ceremony time so he could work with the lighting to accomplish the type of family and couples portraits I wanted. On the day of the wedding Matt had the process down to a science. He was super efficient, and very personable with the wedding party and all our guests. We always trusted he\'d get the right shots and knew exactly who to include in the pictures. He was also very good at framing interesting photos to make every photo interesting. At the reception, Matt agreed to take photos of each table as the bride and g

Matt Montalvo captured every moment of our wedding with ease and grace. He seemed to be everywhere all the time and didn\'t miss anything! I was so thrilled with how professional he was and how easy he made it to get all the pictures we wanted done quickly so we could go party with the guests. Also, he posted the pictures on his website and a few on facebook within 1 week of the wedding, so everyone could view our big day right after it happened. Matt is incredibly talented and easy to work with. I am so glad I picked Matt to be my photographer because he captured the memories of the greatest day of our lives beautifully.

by Stephanie Trueblood

on May 16, 2013

We fell in love with Matts photos because of their quality and attention to detail but as soon as we met him we knew he was our photographer. He is very professional, experienced, organized, and friendly. He worked with our long distance and specific wants for our big day. His turn-around for our photos was very quick and the pictures blew us away like we knew they would.

by Marla Reeves

on May 16, 2013

If you didn\'t hire Matt Montalvo as your wedding photographer...your loss! He did such an amazing job capturing every moment of the wedding. I\'ve had an overwhelming amount of comments from friends and family telling us they loved the pictures - \"beautiful, amazing, gorgeous\"!! Always quick to respond to emails and great communication about everything. I\'m very awkward when it comes to pictures and he did a great job giving us pointers of what to do/not to do; making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. During the wedding he never interfered and most of the time I didn\'t even know he was taking pictures! He\'s very careful to not get in the way and always in the right place to capture a moment. I loved that he took candid photos - definitely some of my favorite pictures. He took our engagement & wedding pictures, as well as my bridal portraits. If you can afford it, please consider the bridals! We highly recommend Matt to all brides out there!

by Maria

on May 16, 2013

Matt is EXCELLENT and I would definitely recommend him to any bride! In fact, he was my sister\'s wedding photographer before he was ours. Matt was fun and flexible to work with, enthusiastic about what he does, and has great ideas. In particular, we appreciate his ability to capture candid shots of people having fun at our reception. Would give more stars if I could.

by Judy

on May 16, 2013

I would recommend anyone to Matt for wedding pictures. My husband and I were married on June 25, 2011. We used Matt for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. He is very professional and easy to work with. It is wonderful to see someone doing what they love and how excited they get. Matt was like this taking pictures for us, playing with light and movement to capture the moments of the evening. Even after the wedding, Matt kept in contact with us to finalize images for our book. I have had so many compliments about the pictures from the wedding. Matt is a wonderful photographer at a great value, but even more than that Matt is a wonderful person to work with. After all, pictures should be the least stressful part of the wedding and her certainly helps to make it that way.

by Cheryl

on May 16, 2013

Matt was very easygoing yet professional throughout the entire process - he responded quickly to correspondence, which I really appreciated! On the day of our wedding, Matt was on time (a little early even!) and organized, and he was a great communicator (always telling us what photos would be coming up next)! We just received the disc of all our photos (wedding was on 7/9/11) and we LOVE them! Matt takes wonderful photos and I know we will treasure ours for a lifetime. I highly recommend working with Matt!

by Stephanie

on May 16, 2013

Matt Montalvo is a star. I am absolutely in love with my photographs, all 1000+. He photographed our engagement and our wedding. Matt was very professional and punctual. The day of the wedding, we had limited time in the venue before the ceremony but he still managed to capture every single detail. I could not have asked for more...... but then the wedding album and the mothers books arrived and they were even more amazing. The quality of his work his superb and I would recommend him to any bride.

by Shayla Bryant

on May 16, 2013

Matt did a really wonderful job with the photos for our June 2011 wedding. We would definitely recommend him to anyone in the Austin area who is looking for a wedding photographer. The photos he took were beautiful - he did a particularly great job setting up fun \"posed\" shots as well as capturing lovely candid shots of us, family, and friends dancing, talking, and laughing throughout the evening. It\'s hard to get good candid shots where people\'s facial expressions don\'t look awkward, but he captured many great moments beautifully. Matt is friendly, professional, and very easy to work with.

by Taryn

on May 16, 2013

Matt Montalvo did an amazing job with my wedding! He was recommended by my sister who\'s wedding he photographed last May 2010. I loved the work and her photos were amazing and her albums were wonderful to look at. Matt uses different emphasis on things and the colors and also black and white photos turned out wonderfully. His sunset photos were my favorite; an amazing job how he captured each of our moments. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends who are getting married or just want great photos and moments to be captured. Thank you so much for taking our wedding photos and joining in the festivities! These photos will go a long way and will be send to my family in Europe who were not able to make our special day.

Amazing, amazing, amazing! Matt is very professional and quick with getting proofs to his clients! I would recommend him to any future bride and groom if they want high quality, unique, and breath taking photos!!

by Bianca

on May 20, 2013

Matt is easily one of Austin\'s best photographers! You\'re guaranteed to get more for your money with him than anyone else. We interviewed five photographers for our wedding and Matt was the obvious choice. His presentation, photographs, reviews, editing abilities, and personality made us think he would be the most expensive, but we were SO relieved to find out how affordable he is. I truly feel like you\'re not getting the best deal for your money if you don\'t hire Matt. Absolutely hire him!!!

by Lisa Harris

on May 20, 2013

Matt is an amazing photographer! We were both very nervous about having our pictures taken but he made the process super easy and fun. Our engagement pictures and my bridal portraits turned out amazing. We have received so many compliments on them. Our wedding pictures turned out even better. Everyone who has seen our pictures has commented at how amazing they turned out. Matt also has your pictures available to be viewed super fast. The best thing is your guests can view them as well. Thank you Matt for all of your hard work and for capturing our memories so beautifully!

by Brittany

on May 20, 2013

Matt is a truly gifted photographer and is so great at truly capturing every moment at your wedding. We could not have been more happy with our photos! Matt is extremely fast on his return time. I was looking at photos from our wedding a week later and received our professionally done wedding album just 8 weeks after our wedding. Not only is He a phenomenal photographer, he is also the consummate professional. He was always very timely in returning emails or calls and was extremely flexible with our crazy schedules. Matt truly cares about the quality of his work and you just can\'t ask for a better photographer to capture your special day.

by Emily

on May 20, 2013

Matt is an excellent photographer!! He has an amazing eye for photos, is very professional, and upfront about everything. We are so happy with all of our wedding pictures! He did a great job capturing the spirit of our event. He\'s also wonderful to work with. He responded quickly to the many emails I sent him, and had our pictures posted within a few days after our wedding. We are so glad a friend recommended him to us.

by Jennifer

Matt did a great job on our wedding! Our pictures turned out beautiful and he really captured the special moments of our wedding. I definitely recommend him for your wedding or any special occasion. Thanks again Matt!

on May 20, 2013

Matt is an awesome photographer! He is easy to work with and fun! At the reception we barely knew he was there. The pictures came out great and he had them done before we got back from our honeymoon (wedding on Friday, pictures done by Tuesday). Trust him, he will make everything look beautiful!

by Lis

on May 20, 2013

My husband and I hired Matt for our wedding, I\'m so glad we found him! His work is just amazing. He captures every moment perfectly. We couldn\'t of been happier with the outcome, these are pictures that we will be able to treasure forever!

by Autumn

on May 20, 2013

Matt is an awesome photographer. We used him for all of our wedding related photography. He was very easy to work with & extremely flexible. We had to change dates on him a few times, & he made it work for us. Matt takes amazing photos, & the prints ordered from his site look amazing as well. He works quickly so you don\'t have to expect to spend hours upon hours snapping pictures. He has an eye for great shots. He gets back to you very quickly when you e-mail or leave a voice mail (even if it\'s 8pm). Matt is really laid back, & has a great personality. You should definitely put Matt at the top of your list when searching for your photographer. It was such a joy to have him be a part of our wedding. We couldn\'t have asked for a better photographer! Check out his website for some great samples of his work.

on May 20, 2013

Matt is a wonderful photographer. I found him through my venue, The Terrace Club in Dripping Springs. It is no wonder to me why they recommended him...he was so great and very flexible with our wedding time-line. Just a few of the many praises I have about Matt: 1) he has a very decent price range for the packages he offers. 2) he is readily available if needed. 3) he has creative ideas and suggestions for great pictures. 4) I especially loved how he meticulously checked EVERY photo after taking them to make sure everything was perfect before moving onto the next. 5) If you have a large family or wedding party for photos, he is very patient with everyone. 6. He is very quick in responding, as well as with his editing. Those were some of the personal touches he added to our special day. He made our whole wedding photography process so easy. I would recommend this photographer to anyone and so glad he was able to be a part of wedding!

by Aly

on May 20, 2013

Matt is freaking awesome!! We took our engagement pictures with him and had him for about 8 hours on our wedding day. He is SO nice and extremely easy to work with. He really is such a pleasant person to have around, which is great when it\'s your wedding day and you are feeling a little high strung. :) He is very patient and handled some of our groomsmen and a bossy aunt (in law) with ease and grace. He is really wonderful in capturing candid shots, so never did we feel like we had to do things around him-he was always around to get the perfect shot but you never really noticed him. We had decided to book him after he did a friend\'s wedding in 2009. Even then he was great, but his talent has grown so much even though he doesn\'t charge what he\'s worth. If you think you are interested in having him as your photographer, don\'t wait to snatch him up! He\'s a busy guy in high demand. I\'m so glad we had him to take pictures, as that\'s the one tangible thing you have after your wedding day...I\'m so happy to have such beautiful pictures to look at for the rest of our lives!

by Melanie

on May 20, 2013

We were so very lucky to have had Matt as our photographer! Not only was he professional but incredibly flexible, punctual and fun. He was kind enough to recommend other services from great people like him which complimented the evening because everyone has worked together. He created a fluid, fun environment while getting all the most amazing photos of my wedding. It has been 6months and guests are still talking about the amazing photography.

by Amy

on May 20, 2013

I can not say enough GREAT things about Matt. He was easy to work with and made EVERYONE feel comfortable in front of the camera. My husband even commented on how amazing the pictures turned out. Matt is incredible and I will use him in the future if we get family pictures or when we decide to have babies :) You will be blown away by his work and he will make your special day over the top PERFECT!

by Shari

on May 20, 2013

We absolutely LOVE our wedding pictures! Matt captured every special moment of our big day. Every time we look through our pictures, it takes us right back to that day...on the beach. Matt & Cori were so easy to work with...it was like they were friends at our wedding...not just photographers. The initial day we had planned for our wedding was 9.25.10, but after finding out that Matt was not available, we moved our wedding day to 10.2.10, and we are so happy that we did! Thanks Matt & Cori...for capturing our wedding day so beautifully. We\'ll have the pictures and memories to last a lifetime!

by Amanda Grimm

on May 20, 2013

One of the best things we did for our wedding was book Matt as our photographer! After seeing his website and the quality of his pictures, we never even talked to another photographer...I knew right then and there he was the one for us. Matt has been nothing but professional, willing to do anything we asked for and we fully trusted him to do the best job for us. We received tons of compliments from our guests about him, saying he was the best photographer they have ever seen, very fun to work with and they were sure he had done a wonderful job. After the pictures were up, it was still nothing but the best of compliments! We would recommend Matt to anyone in the Austin area; he has done such a wonderful job of capturing our special day!!

by Jordan Payne

on May 20, 2013

Matt Montalvo is an amazing photographer with a wonderful personality! I\'m am so happy we found him. We live in Houston and our wedding was in New Braunfels so communication was important. He was very responsive through phone, text and emails for us whenever we needed. Our pictures are beautiful and he captured every moment perfectly...we couldn\'t be happier with them. I would highly recommend him to be your next photographer!!! We would drive to Austin to use him again in the future for sure:)

by Natalie

on May 20, 2013

Matt is extremely talented and very open to knew ideas. I liked that he was very prepared but didn\'t mind when I through in a couple of ideas on my own. Matt is very professional and we liked how fast he worked after our ceremony. My husband and I have huge families and he managed to take pictures of all the different groups in a timely manner so that we could take our husband/wife photos before the sun went down. Our engagement photos were beautiful as well. He has great editing techniques and the quality of the photos you can\'t find anywhere else. The price is worth it!!

by Megan Payne

on May 20, 2013

I was so impressed with Matt. Not only is Matt extremely personable, he is an excellent photographer. Matt made me feel really comfortable and my husband and I had a great time working with him. He has a lot of great ideas and we felt our photos were really unique and personal, which was really important to us. He truly captured our character as a couple. I felt that Matt really blended in at our ceremony and reception. I barely noticed he was there, except for when he was helping us figure out how to do small things like cutting the cake. :-) He was also really fast about getting our pictures edited and available for us to enjoy. We have received several compliments about our photographer\'s style from friends/family and even friends of friends! Overall, Matt is just a really nice person. He is professional and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Matt to any bride and groom for their wedding day.

Matt is FANTASTIC!! Not only is he really fun to work with, but extremely talented as well! He took great pictures of everyone, including important family and friends, without me even telling him who they were! He got great shots without me even know he was there. My husband and I are extremely pleased with the type of artistic editing that he does to make pictures pop and come to life... way more than standard photo shopping! Don\'t miss your chance to snag up this photographer, he is well worth the money! Thanks again, Matt :D

Matt was the best thing we did for our wedding. If we had to forgo all other things like flowers, lighting, etc we would still hire Matt because he doesn\'t need beautiful surroundings to create spectacular shots! I created every aspect of my wedding and it was important to me that Matt capture all of the tiny details as well as the overall feel of the wedding theme which was rustic chic. He did that and soooooo much more. I can\'t say enough wonderful things about him. He didn\'t miss a thing. I also don\'t want to forget to mention how quick he was to edit and deliver our photos to us- overall he was way above par compared to a lot of other photographers out there!!!!!!!!!

Matt ROCKS!!!!!! The minute I met him, I knew I wanted him to be our photographer. The work he showed me was top notch and his rates are so good! He was very flexible, took certain photos that I wanted him to and was so quick in editing them after our wedding. Everyone who has seen them has loved them!! I can\'t wait for my coffee table book - it looks fantastic. MATT, thank you for everything....we will always remember how beautiful our day was by of your fantastic pictures.

We were so lucky to find Matt to do the photography for our wedding. Matt, also did our engagement photos and they came out amazing! Our photos came out beautiful and unique. Matt was able to catch our personalities in our photos, creating memories for us that are special to us and not just a typical cookie cutter album. We received our album a few weeks ago and it came out perfect.

Matt\'s photos were AMAZING! He did such a good job capturing every moment of our wedding. When I first looked through all of the photos, I was amazed at how much I missed on the actual day that Matt was able to capture. (the looks on people\'s faces, the moments that happened while my back was turned, etc.) He was literally everywhere at once and from all the right angles! When I look back on everything I spent money on the day of my wedding, the photography became the most valuable, because now I have these awesome moments saved forever. Matt went above and beyond any expectations I had of a photographer. He was definitely the best thing money bought that day. Amazing quality photos for a great price! I will definitely be recommending him to anyone I meet. He was friendly, fun, professional, organized, and the end product was so much better than I ever could have dreamed! Thank you Matt!!

We loved working with Matt and are super happy with the pictures we have from both our engagement photo session and the wedding & reception. We chose Matt after we realized he had taken so many of the pictures of the Terrace Club (our wedding venue). He really is great with sunsets & light and since Texas and the Terrace Club offer both, we wanted to make sure we got some really special shots. My groom always looks great in pictures, but I have a bad habit of always blinking or making a weird face when a camera is pointed in my direction. Luckily, even I looked great in Matt\'s pictures. It was a super special night, but we thought Matt and his wife managed to capture many of the special moments without intruding on the night. We are totally looking forward to receiving our book (& are so happy that Matt chose the best pictures for us)!

Of all the photographers I met with, and trust me I looked through a lot, Matt was the best quality and at an awesome price! He really won me over with his editing. Some times looking back you regret a vendor you choose for your wedding but that was definitely not the case for us with out photography. The photos came out great, he met all of our request and was easy to work with. Everyone loves our photos especially us!

Matt is a fantastic photographer! I love love love the pictures from my wedding! He really captured the whole night in a way that helps me relive it every time I look at them. And he got some amazing and funny pictures of everyone dancing! Aside from beautiful pictures, one thing that really impressed me with his service is that he was always there when I wanted to get a certain shot but otherwise blended in so that no one felt like they had a camera on them all night (otherwise I would have had fake, cheesy smile all night instead of actually looking happy!) He did an amazing job and we didn\'t have to spend a fortune to have the photography style we wanted!

Matt was amazing to work with. He shot my bridal portraits and our wedding. We are very happy with our pictures and he did a great job of capturing our personalities. His wife, Cori, also helped him with the wedding. They were fabulous and got great shots of everything while blending in all at the same time. I highly recommend Matt. I have gotten a great response from people who have seen our amazing pictures.

First of all, all I have to say is AMAZING! I want to thank Matt over and over again for what a great job he did with all of the pictures. Working with us to schedule engagement pictures around unpredictable weather events, the time crunch before our wedding when traffic made everyone varying shades of LATE, and special requests from my family members! He is truly a great person to work with professionally. Matt has a tremendous talent for photography.

Matt was wonderful to work with! He was one of several photographers my husband and I interviewed for our wedding and he far out shined his competition. We were initially interested in meeting him after viewing the exceptional work on his website and blog. His easy-going personality paired with the incredible value of his photography packages made him the obvious choice. He promised to have pictures posted online for us to review two weeks after the wedding--they were actually up three days after the event, along with an initial layout of our wedding album. What a great way to come back from your honeymoon! We got to relive all of the details of our wedding day immediately and had our album finalized and ordered one week after the event! I\'ve had friends and family comment that, while they were happy with the overall photography experience they had at their own weddings, they would have preferred to work with someone like Matt. If he\'s available for your date, I highly recommend booking him immediately.

Matt is absolutely the most awesome guy, he is extremely professional and a blast to have as your wedding photographer! We had our wedding at the Terrace Club in Dripping Springs and we couldn\'t have dreamed up better pictures...they turned out amazing. He is worth every penny and I think is a great deal compared to all other photographers in this area....Trust me you will not be disappointed with his work!!!

Matt did such an AMAZING job!!! I just keep looking at the photos to relive the night - he captured everything! I cannot say enough good things about him. He also did our engagement shots and they were fantastic too! I would and will recommend him to all of my friends!

Matt was the photographer at our wedding. He\'s friendly, professional, accommodating, and did an excellent job. Our pictures were wonderful. If you look at them from beginning to end, it\'s almost like you were there. Our wedding was on December 12, and he had the photos ready in more than enough time for us to use prints as Christmas presents for our families.

Matt is fantastic!!! Besides his incredible talent to take beautiful wedding pictures he is a gem to work with. I have to say, out of all the decisions I made while planning my wedding, I was the happiest with choosing Matt to take our pictures. They turned out amazing and his price was reasonable. He even stayed up late one night working with me on the design of our wedding album so it could be sent to the publisher before the Thanksgiving holiday. We couldn\'t be happier with our pictures...we have them in frames all over our home!

Matt was great to work with. He is a friendly guy and very professional. Its nice to get to meet the photographer that is going to be taking the pictures. We were very picky when choosing our photographer. We went through several websites. When we found Matt\'s website, we were amazed. He responded to us quickly and met all our needs. He has a lot of great ideas for pictures (engagement and wedding). We were really happy to find all our wedding pictures available shortly after our wedding, and even before we got back from our honeymoon. We definitely recommend him 100%. You will be very happy with the results.

I used Matt for my engagement pictures, bridal portraits and of course for my wedding day! He did an amazing job on all three. I was able to relive my wedding day when I looked through my pictures because he was able to capture so many great memories. I have received so many compliments on my pictures and on Matt\'s personality toward my guests at the wedding. He is super easy to work with and is very friendly. I think he enjoyed my wedding as much as I did! I recommended him to my friend that got married right after me and again he was fabulous!

I just started reviewing the photos Matt took of our wedding. They are spectacular! He did a wonderful job. The pictures are beautiful and Matt is fantastic to work with. He\'s friendly, easygoing, great at putting people at ease, and seems to love his job! We definitely made the right decision having Matt as our photographer.

Matt was EASY to work with- our pictures are beautiful! I love looking at a single snap shot and feeling overwhelmed with emotions- since I know what was happening right then, right there. He really captures the moment. He\'s up for anything- and has great creative ides-We used Matt for our engagement, bridals, wedding- and now for a maternity session! (and soon hopefully for a newborn session too) I can\'t say enough good/ great things about him- He can do it all-

I have nothing but good things to say about Matt! All of our pictures were perfect! They came out better than I could have imagined! Matt took our engagement photos, my bridal portraits, and of course our wedding photos. The proofs were always available within a few days. He always worked around our schedules if there were ever any conflicts. Our concern was not wanting many traditional photos. He had great ideas and listened to all of ours about the kinds of photos we did or didn\'t want. He is young and easy to get along with, making it so much easier for us. He took some great modern photos and action shots of everyone dancing at the wedding! I could not have asked for a better photographer!

First off let me start off saying that MATT IS AMAZING!!! From the moment I laid eyes on his pictures I knew that he would be the one taking our pictures. I was nervous at first took our engagement pictures but it didn\'t take me long for Matt to make us feel comfortable and just to have fun with it! Our engagement pictures turned out INCREDIBLE AND I WAS so anxious after that for our wedding day to come. Well our day came and of course MATT DID IT AGAIN! :-) I wanted to buy all of them but I think over 800 pictures is a bit obsessive! LOL! Matt is an amazing, funny, professional, TALENTED PHOTOGRAPHER AND WE WOULD PICK HIM ALL OVER AGAIN! Thank you Matt for all your wonderful work and MAKING MY WEDDING DAY AN AMAZING MEMORY!!!!

Matt photographed my wedding at The Terrace Club in Austin, TX and the pictures turned out amazing. One of the best things about him is that he takes great photos, but you don\'t even notice he\'s there. I\'ve been to so many weddings that the photographers are right in the middle of everything, and it really takes away from the moment. I would definitely recommend choosing Matt Montalvo Photography for your wedding, engagement, or bridal portraits. Great quality and very reasonably priced!

Matt photographs beautiful pictures really capturing the moment, emotion, and environment around you. He takes both candid and \"staged\" photos and makes everything look natural. He is extremely easy to work with and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera (i was nervous about this for my bridals and they looked amazing). Matt was quick and efficient and made sure he got all the shots we wanted.

Matt is so amazing! From the first time we met him, we knew it was a great match. He makes you feel so comfortable, and I got a lot of really great comments from the guests at the wedding. The value for the service can\'t be beat! I got so much more from him that I had ever imagined!
