I believe in photography, but more than that I believe in photographs.
Printed photographs are tangible. These are the images that you can hold on to, pass them around, frame them and hang them on a wall. Albums that can be looked through on the day to day to remind you of one of the best days of your life.
I am passionate about creating images that last a lifetime. Let me help preserve your memories
Wedding collections with fine art, custom designed flush-mounted albums begin at $4400.

I also offer destination wedding photography and portrait photography as well. I also can put together custom collections.
I book a certain number of weddings per year to make sure I am focusing on each couple and giving them the level of service they deserve. I care deeply about what I do and want my clients and couples to also care about the quality and how their memories are captured.
If this sounds like you, let’s meet and get to know each other.
Frequently Asked Questions
I grew up in a family involved in photography. I had a camera in my hand as soon as I could learn to walk (well not exactly- but pretty close) I pursued photography all through high school and I knew I wanted it to have some involvement in my life. I got a degree in Digital Media from Merrimack College and landed a fabulous job working with a very talented Boston Wedding photographer back in 2007. I ended up furthering my photo education a few years later at New England School of Photography and started Match Made Studios shortly thereafter. With 200+ weddings under my belt, l couldn’t be more proud of being able to do what I love.
No, I do not. I eliminate duplicate images, test shots, missed focused shots, shots with bad expressions, etc.
While I’m based outside of the Boston area – I’m happy to travel all around the world. I have been fortunate enough to do a few destination weddings already. There are small travel fees that will apply but contact me for what this entails!
I’ve shot at many venues, so there’s a reasonably good chance that I have. However, if not, I always try to get to the venue either before or early on the actual Wedding day to do a thorough walk-through to scout the best photography locations. I also do extensive online research prior to your wedding.
I always bring at least one other photographer to photograph the entire day with me so that nothing gets missed! If you are having a smaller, more intimate gathering let me know and we can create a custom package that would only include myself as the photographer.
Of course! It’s good to see what a photographer can produce over the course of an entire day – not just a small selection of their best work.
Since every wedding is so different,I don’t define myself as having a specific one style.I like to use a mix of styles to capture the day. While family photos must be staged, I strive to keep the rest of your day to be genuine and not too posed.
Yes Please! We are running around all day carrying heavy gear from one place to another. Granola bars and water can only go so far.
Yes we do and if your venue requests it, we would be happy to provide them with a certificate of insurance.
Yes, of course! This is why I offer the complimentary engagement session in my packages. I understand that you might not have experience being photographed and through my easy shooting style and natural posing, I make sure that you look natural and lovely in your photos. Some people take a little longer to warm up, and in those cases I make sure that you feel comfortable and relaxed while we are shooting. I promise, I make it painless and fun, and it won’t be nearly as bad as you think. Doing these sessions will help you feel more relaxed on the wedding and help me get to know you more as couple.
Yes and No, You own the print rights to make copies anywhere you like for personal use. This includes posting online and making prints. However you may not sell the images for profit or publish your images without the written consent of Match Made Studios. You don’t own the actual legal copyright as that defaults to the photographer in all circumstances, unless specifically outlined in the contract.
I love to post your photos on social media, my blog and potentially send to publications. With that being said, if you would like to keep the photos private, we understand and will respect your wishes. Just let us know ahead of time!
Engagement and family photos will be available for online viewing approximately three weeks after the shoot. Weddings normally take around 4-6 weeks to be completed.
Yes I do. I shoot exclusively in RAW format. This leaves me with maximum flexibility in post production. Once editing is complete I convert all the images to JPG format for you. I shoot Every image I deliver is post produced with my unique signature style. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments and other corrections. I make sure my photographs arrive to you print ready.
Awesome! The way to reserve the date is to sign a contract and put down a retainer payment. We do give preference to those who inquired first but if another couple is looking to sign, we cannot hold your date for long. The retainer is 30% of the total contract price with the remainder due 2 weeks before the wedding. Email me today to find out if I’m available for your date!
