"We are so happy to have had Matthew Thwing Photography capture our wedding! Matt was excellent to work with, before the wedding, during engagement photos, and during the wedding. He made us feel comfortable and at ease during the entire thing. He was also very flexible and accommodating as we were from out of town. Matt, and his wife Peggy, captured absolutely everything that happened during our wedding day. They were great at providing direction and making sure everything we wanted was captured, including things we thought of spur of the moment! We love our photos and would wholeheartedly recommend Matthew Thwing Photography. Thank you so much!!"

"Matt and his wife Peggy were fantastic to work with! They were very down to earth, flexible, and creative. We had been working with Matt for a while but he was very easy to talk to and did his best to make sure we were getting what we needed from him. I would say that our pictures came back classic, simple but very clean, and they caught some great candid moments. Definitely book them if you are looking for a laid back experience!"


Miranda & Ben

"Matthew was on professional, courteous and wonderful from day one. We met him, and his wife Peggy at a convention, he took individual time to talk with us, and made us feel like we were more than a passer-by. We set an appointment for follow up. At our appointment, Matthew embraced our mothers being there, and really listened to our wants/desires for our day. Matthew took time to review what we were looking for and touch base with us after our meeting to ensure he was capturing what we wanted. Matthew's packages were on point! Prior to our big day, Matthew was in touch frequently to check in. I thought it was a unmatched personal touch and I appreciated it very much. In the weeks leading up to our big day, Matthew reviewed timeline, details, etc. so that we were not stressing any details on our day. The day of Matthew checked in with me, and of course I was in a panic, he went out to help me sort out an issue with the caterer and told me not to think any more about it! I was so relieved! Peggy and Matthew were so accommodating. They didn't pressure us for photos, or photo opps. They were not intrusive or pushy. Our photos are BREATHTAKING! I seriously love every single one! I feel so lucky to have worked with them, and to have come to know them. Matthew is my number one suggestion hands down!"


Ashley & Sam

"Matthew was absolutely tremendous. My wife and I used him for our engagement and wedding photos. Matthew was able to capture all the little moments of the day and really bring out the beauty of everything about the day. Matthew was extremely personable and great to work with. I would highly recommend him to everyone. The engagement photos looked amazing, and I am positive from the few wedding photos that I had the pleasure to see that they are going to be breathtaking. If you are going to spend money on anything for your wedding, make sure that it is Matthew Thwing! I could not imagine anyone else photographing our wedding. Matthew is so incredibly talented! You will be simply amazed by how good his photos will look. He truly has a passion and loves what he does, which is extremely evident in his photos. Hire Matthew Thwing!"


Emily & Tony

"My husband and I met Matt 4 days before our wedding. We had issues with our previously hired photographer and at the last minute decided to switch. We met with Matt to go over his style, what we were looking for, and what we could expect if we hired him. When we left the meeting, we felt so comfortable and relieved! (we hired him the next day). On the day of our wedding, everything went extremely well. Matt (and the second photographer) showed up early and were ready to work. Not only did we love Matt but my mother and mother in law raved about him as well. They loved how professional he was and that he was taking candid shots of our small nieces/nephews. We received our photos back around the 8-week mark, which we expected. We had ‘sneak peaks’ along the way (some as soon as the day after the wedding!). 
I know that when planning a wedding the budget can be a huge factor, but I can promise that Matt is worth every penny that he charges. We had previously hired someone much cheaper and it was a horrible experience (so horrible we were looking for a new photographer 4 days before our wedding). Don’t try to cut corners when it comes to your wedding photographer, these will be the memories that you have for the rest of your life!! I am so happy that we trusted Matt with our day and absolutely recommend him."

Alycia & Tyler

"We had a fantastic experience with Matthew as our wedding reception photographer! He was very easy to work with, and just blended in to our evening and did his thing. We would highly recommend meeting with him!"

 Megan & Adam

"Matt was the best photographer! Not only did he capture my husband and I in our comfort and best features, he was fun. Matt was covered in grass from rolling around on the ground getting different angles. I now have the BEST wedding pictures a girl could ask for. As most married people know, your wedding day flies by so quickly.. I had no idea just how quickly it would fly by.. Thanks to Matt, I have the most captivating pictures to take me back to the most special day in our lives!"


Courtney & Kyle

"Matthew worked with us for both engagement and wedding photo sessions, and his quality was top-notch. He was able to work with about every angle to get the perfect moments to capture, and we loved his flexibility with our requests. We highly recommend using Matthew."

Wani & Michael

"From start to finish our entire experience was great! "We had an in person consultation which was very beneficial to making sure our wedding ran smoothly. Communication was great as far as us asking Matthew any questions we had. The wedding day itself went amazing. Matthew knew just where to be and when to be there. Our pictures turned out absolutely amazing and we couldn’t be happier"

Alyssa & Jake

“We had the deepest pleasure of using Matthew as our photographer for our wedding this past spring. He was an obvious choice from the beginning due to how incredibly talented he was, but we were even more convinced once we saw how he had a natural ability to make anyone feel comfortable in front of a camera. (That takes a special type of person!) He was both professional and fun to work with! And the pictures are breathtaking!”

Sarah & Chris

“After speaking with other wedding photographers, we chose Matthew Thwing for his great attitude, enthusiasm, and his many beautiful references. We had a lot of fun in our engagement photo session, so we knew working with Matthew on our wedding day would be a breeze. After seeing the final results, we are very impressed yet again. He was able to capture moments that would have been otherwise forgotten to the excitement of the day. Some were hilarious like my nephew pressed against a glass door looking out on our portrait photos being taken. Others were sweet and artful like my wife and I framed by a tree as if in a fairytale. Of course, it should go without saying that I would recommend Matthew Thwing Photography without reservation to anyone in the future.”

Lina & Lucas

“Matt is absolutely AMAZING! Both my husband and I are blown away with how awesome our wedding and engagement photos turned out. Matt is very professional, reliable, enthusiastic, and easy to work with. I would recommend him in a heart beat to anyone out there looking for a great wedding photographer.” 

Kassidy & Zane

“My husband and I loved working with Matt, during our engagement session and especially on our wedding day. He is so much fun to work with, and we truly appreciate how he endured the hot July heat without complaint to get some amazing pictures! My husband and I were pleased with our engagement pictures, but we’ve really been blown away by the photos he took on our wedding day. He did a live preview during the reception of some photos that he took throughout the day, and these pictures had many of our family members tearing up because of how beautiful they were. The pictures truly capture the most magical moments throughout the day, and we will cherish the memories forever. We will definitely be coming back to Matt in the future for any professional photography. His pictures speak for themselves to showcase his talent.”  

Christina & Aaron

“Matthew is seriously the BEST! His work is phenomenal and he captured the essence of our engagement and wedding day with such precision. I am still blown away! Beyond his amazing talent, he is also an amazing person. Matthew became so much more than a "vendor" to us, and quickly became a friend. During a stressful planning process, one thing that never waivered was our complete and total faith in Matthew's ability to document the most important day of our lives. He knows how much of your heart and soul goes into planning a wedding, and he doesn't miss one detail. From the bottom of our hearts we cannot thank Matthew enough for the breathtaking way he was able to capture and document our special day. Every time we look at our pictures, we experience October 21st all over again!! I can't recommend him highly enough!” 

Allison & Chris

“Matt was amazing to work with. He went out of his way to make our wedding amazing. He was as enthusiastic as he is talented. We're so happy with our results. Our wedding day memories will always be perfect thanks to his help.” 

Maggie & Ryley

“Matthew is an awesome photographer, every penny was worth it. Initially my husband and I were nervous, but Matthew broke the ice for us and assisted us in taking the most amazing shots. Matthew was professional, and also became a friend. I will definitely use this company again to capture my special moments.” 

Whitney & Byron

“Matt is so wonderful! He is extremely knowledgeable and accommodating. He really had a good understanding of what we wanted as a whole but also used his expertise to give us shots we would never have thought of! He does a great job making you feel as comfortable as possible - which worked so well for my husband and I because we aren't exactly comfortable in front of the camera. He is wonderful at capturing candid moments too, which we just loved. We would absolutely recommend Matt to everyone!” 

Kaitlin & Tom

“I found out about Matthew Thwing photography at the Fredericksburg wedding expo last year. As soon as I talked to Matt I knew I wanted him as my wedding photographer. He was great! He made my husband and I feel so comfortable while taking our pictures. We had a lot of fun with him. I asked my husband what his favorite part of our wedding day was and he said it was when we were taking pictures with Matt and his assistant. It felt like we had known them forever. It is less than 48 hours after the wedding and we already have a big chunk of pictures from him. They look incredible! He truly is talented. My only regret is not doing my engagement photos with him as well.” 

Kathryn & Matt 

“I met Matthew and Peggy at bridal show and we instantly connected. Unlike many other vendors at this very busy event, they made me feel like I was the only perspective customer in the building. They were genuinely interested in getting to know me. We talked about our families, shared a few laughs, discussed their services (no pressure) and I went on my way. Admittedly, I was still in shopping mode as I was a very thrifty bride. I continued to cross paths with Matthew at other events. Each time, he was just as welcoming as the first time. I felt like I was running into an old friend. After a lot of research, I selected Matthew to be my photographer although there were less expensive options. It was a very wise investment on my part. Throughout the entire process, Matthew was very open to my ideas and feedback. Our engagement and wedding photos are amazingly BEAUTIFUL. Your wedding day is going to go by in a blink of an eye and you cannot recreate those moments, Matthew will do a fabulous job of capturing all of your special moments. I highly recommend his services. Two thumbs up!” 

Cynthia & Todd

“We absolutely loved our experience with Matt, he is very professional and his work is amazing. He made us feel so comfortable, made us laugh, and is so easy to get along with. His pictures came out fantastic, we loved them all! We booked him for our engagement session and our wedding and I have already referred him to some of my friends and will keep referring him again and again. We had rain all morning and afternoon of our day and was very happy that he made sure I was calm and told me that the day will make for some fantastic photos, and he was right! He is very responsive, I usually get an email back within minutes. Very professional and organized, but also down to earth and overall great guy!” 

Lori & Zach 

“My husband and I won a free engagement shoot with Matt at a bridal show, and he did such a great job that we decided to book him for our wedding as well! Matt is very professional as well as personable. He met with us for over an hour before the wedding to go over the details of our day and the specific photos we were looking to capture. He offered so many great ideas, such as planning to take a few photos during the reception as the sun set - those photos turned out to be my absolute favorite of the day! He also suggested a few locations to take photos at my venue that I hadn't thought of - we ended up using one of them for our first look, and the photos turned out absolutely beautiful. Matt responded to emails very quickly and even sent us a bunch of photos to look at the day after our wedding! I am very, very happy with my wedding photos, and I highly recommend Matthew Thwing Photography for your big day!” 

Ashley and Dom

“My husband and I felt really lucky to have found Matthew Thwing photography. He and his wife Peggy were so kind. They have a lot of different packages available depending on what you need and what you can afford, and they were so flexible with our families, who were a little overwhelming on the day of the wedding. Somehow he managed to run interference with the families, scout new locations when it started raining, and still take beautiful photos!” 

Irene & Darrell


“One of the best photographer teams out there! They are quick and they always get their shots! They are kind, courteous and respectful to everyone in the bridal party. Both of them run a stress-free partnership when they are working an event.” 

Kelly & Walter

“Matthew was the only photographer we thought of when we were looking for a photographer. He is very easy to get along with and he had a vision for pictures that we would have never thought of. He made sure to get every aspect of our wedding that we wanted.”
