"Working with Matt is always a pleasure; I look forward to it with anticipation rather than nerves. Matt is very open-minded and patient whenever I am trying to achieve a particular look. He knows lighting and angles better than anyone I’ve worked with, and whenever we shoot together I cannot wait to see the results. I am always jaw-droppingly shocked at what he is able to capture behind that lens."

"Matt is amazing - he not only captured the events of the day, he captured the moments. The little moments that a person might forget. The majority of our photos were taken when I wasn't aware of it. Matt knew what was important to me and he shot it. He was able to capture our wedding in a way I can't even begin to describe. The happiness we felt that day is in our photos. You can see it, and as I look back at them I can feel it. Working with Matt was a pleasure. He is a true professional in every way."

"We are very fortunate to have found Matt! Before, during, and after our wedding he was the perfect combination of professional and personable. Our pictures are beautiful! He did an excellent job of capturing a mixture of candid and posed shots like we asked, but we also felt comfortable leaving creative decisions up to him. We trusted his judgment and it turned out wonderfully. Meeting ahead of time and his genuine interest in getting to know us as a couple contributed to this success."

"I have had nothing but great experiences dealing with fadetowhite photography, to the point where he is now the only photographer I employ and recommend to friends, family, and clients. His knowledge of the medium is first-rate, his equipment is top-notch, and the finished product is impeccable. To top it all off, he's easy to get along with, has a great sense of humour, is always cooperative with scheduling, and his prices are the best in town. Not sure there's more you could ask for. Whether it's for personal or business, Matt is the man for the task."

"Leading up to our wedding, Matt was very communicative. He had great ideas to help us organize the best places and shots for our wedding party. On the day of our wedding, Matt was the perfect combination of relaxed and professional. He was very calm and organized and made everyone feel comfortable. He was constantly taking photos and we were so excited to receive lots of fun and unique candid shots as well as our posed photos. We received our photos very quickly after our wedding and we couldn’t have been more pleased. Every photo was exceptional."
