Not your average wedding photographer here.

Hey, I'm Mattea

GOOD VIBES
ALL DAY LONG

The name is Mattea, pronounced Matty.  I'm a destination wedding, elopement, and couples photographer based out of  Huntsville, AL. I'm stoked that you stopped by! My favorite thing is capturing adventurous couples who are head-over-heels GAGA for each other. 
I'm not your typical photographer. I'm the one who has your back and will capture all the in-between, special moments. Not only will I perfectly capture your love story, but I will be there to fix your hair and hold your dress when you need it. I will be there right alongside you to make your day as beautiful, peaceful,  and magical as possible!

If you're ready for an epic adventure, awkward real life stories, weirdo dance moves and a freaking fun time, you've come to the right place. LET'S BE FRIENDS!


More about me

"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!"

"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 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 amazing! You can see and feel the emotion through her work. She captures the moments you will treasure forever. She is so very professional, skilled and so very sweet to work with. She has a true gift for photography, her final product shows that. We highly recommend Merry Moments Photography!"

"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."

"I've shot with Mattea three times now and every time has been an absolutely perfect experience. She always makes me feel so comfortable and confident, and she's great at suggesting poses and angles and making sure everything looks amazing while also feeling natural. I laugh so much whenever I shoot with her, and I have always LOVED the outcome in the photos. If you're looking for gorgeous colors, natural smiles, and lots of light and love to come through in your photos, Mattea is the photographer for you!!"

"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."

"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!
