I'm Matt, the mastermind behind the cleverly-named Matt Pool Photography. I believe that weddings are a celebration of love, and that there is no better reason to celebrate. My love for photography grew from my desire to document life's adventures, and found a natural home in documenting weddings in the Pacific Northwest. One thing I've learned over the years is that the best photos come from great experiences. Your wedding experience is what is most important to me because I know that if you are having a great time and enjoying the moment, then I'll get some amazing and authentic photos. I love celebrating the unique qualities of each couple I photograph and tend to let my couples inspire and inform my approach. It's a once-in-a-lifetime celebration and you deserve some awesome photos that are authentic, meaningful and beautifully representative of YOU.

How about you? My clients tend to appreciate my natural and candid approach to photography. They want great photographs to remember the day, but realize that the most important part is the getting married part. They want to experience their wedding day to the fullest and let their love shine. Don’t like having your photo taken? I love being able to help my couples relax and let loose! Some of the most memorable photos are made when couples are comfortable enough to share a quiet moment with their partner, explore their adventurous side, get their shoes dirty or get a little goofy. Like what you’re seeing? Let’s get in touch.

I live in Kingston, Washington, but will travel anywhere for a fun/unusual/weird/dangerous wedding. See what I’ve been up to lately here or check out my wedding portfolio.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I like a little adventure in my life and I absolutely love it when couples crawl, leap or bound out of the box and do things a little differently on their wedding day. I believe that we should all be true to who we are and that you should have a wedding that reflects who you are.

I love photographing non-traditional weddings. Bring on those backyard weddings, mountain-top weddings, LGBTQ weddings, and elopements! Whatever you can dream and imagine!

I always include a free engagement photography session with every wedding. It gives us a chance to do something fun, creative and meaningful; and the photos you get are a great compliment to your wedding collection.

I use a build-your-own approach to wedding pricing which makes it easy to work with any type of wedding and stay within your budget. I also offer some great deals for small, intimate weddings and elopements.

"Wow! How can we begin to thank you for your amazing work, stunning photos, patient customer service, and all around wonderful experience we had with you as our wedding photographer! We would make the same decision time and time again. Very satisfied customers over here! Thank you so much for your attention to detail, calm demeanor, and amazing ability to capture beautiful moments. We would love to have you as our photographer for all of life’s big moments.
Sincerely, Vince and Lindsay"
