Your wedding video will be ‘Pinterest-worthy’
but not because it fits the current trends - but because it is unique, authentic, and worth showing off!
Shane and Alex were married at Camino Real Ranch in Austin Texas. What I loved about this wedding was how their family and friends came together with beautiful things to say about this amazing couple! The best part was when the wedding was over and I ran into the Groom's mom. I asked if she wanted to share some words for the couple and everything she had to say came from a place of love and support. It ended up being the words to start their film that set the tone for the emotion that was present on their wedding day.
"To Shane and Alex, I felt like the 3 of us have been building up excitement for your wedding for years and it fulfilled the excitement! It is hard to imagine how long your lives have been running in parallel that you would end up in this very moment but you made it. There is nothing more that I can say that wasn't said already by Shane's mom in the beginning of your wedding film so if anything, rewatch the first minute of this film over and over until it sets in about the importance of the decision you made and the life you're going to live together, forever. You two are amazing and I pray that God will continue to bless you two and I look forward to seeing the life that you will continue to build! –Matthew
Downtown Austin Intimate Vow Renewal
Jasmine and Gee went for a fun, intimate, exploratory urban feel for their vow renewal throughout Austin Texas. We started the day at an Airbnb in East Austin where Jasmine and Gee played board games, wrote their vows, and prepared for their big day. We then walked around rode scooters, and explored downtown Austin until we found the perfect spot for them to exchange their vows which was atop a parking garage with the beautiful Austin sunset reflecting off of nearby buildings.
We finished the day off with tacos at Torchy's tacos on South Congress (can you believe that they have never had Torchy's tacos before?!?).
Jasmine and Gee were open to anything and really just wanted to enjoy their day and create memories as a married couple. We had no agenda and focused on the couple and finding locations that were special and introduce them to new locations. Thank you for trusting me to document this big moment!
The Union on Eighth
Cliff and Meme were married at The Union on Eighth in Georgetown Texas. I could sit down with this couple for days and learn so much about their lives, their activism for the Black community, and how they've grown to love each other. They have an incredibly unique story and it was an honor to be able to document this chapter in their lives.
To Cliff and Meme,
There is not much that I can say about you high school sweethearts that hasn't already been said. The two of you have an incredible story of love and restoration and it was an incredible experience to spend this special day with you, your family, and friends. May God continue to bless you two and your marriage! – Matthew
Private Ranch in Dripping Springs
Ryan and Dyan were married at a Private Ranch in Dripping Springs. When I pulled up to Dyan's parents' house where they chose to be married, I seriously thought it was a legitimate wedding venue. Everything about Ryan and Dyan's wedding day in Dripping Springs was absolutely beautiful and incredible! The background and symbolism of their wedding being held at Dyan's parents' ranch really leaned into the very intimate and detail filled day. The attention to detail, the incredible floral display, and the meaningful vows and words shared to each other capped the day off.
To Dyan and Ryan, You two are so amazing and have so much love between the two of you! When you, Dyan, said that you wanted to go "all out" with details, florals, and design, you were 100% serious yet this still did not take away from the sweet and intimate gathering of friends, family, and a lot of kiddos haha The two of you are special and just like Ryan said in the video, I look forward to seeing where you all go in life. My prayer for you two is that God will allow you two to build lasting and joyous memories together and with your children. Stand on the promises that you made to each other and you'll be blessed with an incredible marriage full of love and laughter." – Matthew

“I am so glad I found Matthew. Not only is he the friendliest person ever, but he is also extremely talented. Multiple people cried while watching our 1-minute instagram teaser video. Matthew is hard-working and thoughtful, and he made us feel special during the entire process. He openly communicates and spends time getting to know you and your preferences, which is probably why all of his videos are so intimate and special. It really is true when people say the day is a blur and goes by way too quickly. Thanks to Matthew, we were able to relive our day over and over.”
"We were able to relive our day over and over.”
“We cannot believe how amazing our elopement video turned out! Matthew captured the day so beautifully and showed how magical it really was! He portrayed our story so beautifully. He took the time to call us and get to know us so he could capture everything we are about on film. Since we chose to elope, we didn’t plan too much, but Matthew was there to help us plan as well! He helped us sort out all the little details of the park as well. He really made our day special and better than we ever could have imagined.”
"He portrayed our story so beautifully."
“Working with Matthew was an awesome experience from start to finish. Even though he maintains a busy schedule, I still felt like we were his only clients. He was always available for calls, he checked in on us frequently via email, and he went above and beyond to help and calm our concerns. He was even able to live stream our wedding for all our remote family. Because of him, my 86 year old grandmother was able to watch me get married!”

Freebie? I got you, fam.
