Matthew Thwing Photography | Matthew Thwing Photography Reviews





"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 and 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 and 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.”
