My name is Mattea (pronounced matty), and I'm SO HAPPY you're here!! I’m a Huntsville, AL based photographer who is passionate about capturing adventurous, head over heels, fun-loving people!
My love for taking pictures all started when I was 16 and bought my first DSLR camera... 11 years and 5 cameras later, here we are!

what people say about me

When Mattea says she’s your #1 hype gal, it’s no joke! My husband and I had a BLAST with her during our couples session and we received the most gorgeous pictures! We’re both introverts and can struggle with being awkward having our photo taken, but Mattea made it so easy to relax and just have fun. She guided us into poses that we absolutely wouldn’t have thought of on our own, some of which seemed goofy at the time but they yielded some of our absolute favorite photos from the session. She was kind, encouraging, easygoing funny, and so very professional. I would recommend Mattea in a heartbeat to ANYONE looking for a photographer!

Over the past few years, I have had several opportunities to work with Mattea. She takes her photography business seriously and is learning and applying new techniques all the time. She took my engagement and wedding pictures and did a wonderful job! I proudly display the pictures on my wall! She is great at making everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera, while also capturing their personality. I look forward to working with her in the future.

what people say about me

The first time Mattea took mine and my husbands pictures was the first time I had really had my pictures taken professionally. I was nervous because I didn’t know what to do, and usually do not feel comfortable having my picture taken. Mattea changed that completely. I felt so at ease and comfortable and like I had been friends with Mattea for years. I felt so relaxed and like I was just there to have fun. She gave us enough direction to make us not look awkward, but not too much to where it was forced. She got the most beautiful candid shots of us just having fun. I feel like she truly captured our relationship perfectly and effortlessly.

Mattea is fun, professional, and SO GOOD AT HER JOB. She knows how to make anyone look good, even those might not be naturally photogenic or good at posing, she will fix your hair and tell you exactly what to do to make sure that you get the dreamy, insta worthy photos that you want. She knew how to style a photo shoot that would fit the very specific aesthetic of my partner and I which always means the world. 10/10 would do again!

Mattea is the best photog out there. She did wonderful on our engagement session and wedding day. There is not a single photo from the galleries that I’m not in love with. Her photos are all so dreamy; I would not have wanted anyone else to shoot our special day! Mattea’s energy makes even the most awkward of folks (aka me) feel natural in front of the camera. She rocks!

Mattea is such an amazing photographer! She did my engagement and wedding photos! She’s so professional, but also so outgoing and can make you feel comfortable in any situation! We took a 3.5+ hour road trip to a canyon for my engagement session, and just WOW I’d never seen more perfect pictures! I’ve had so many compliments on all my photos! She knows exactly what she’s doing and how to make two awkward/introverted engineers picture perfect! Forever thankful for her and giving me these memories!
