I am Matthew William and I prefer to call myself a Wedding Artist. While I use a photojournalistic approach to my wedding photography, I utilize my Bachelor of Fine Art Degree in Drawing and Painting to deliver true Fine Art images to clients. My style of photography draws inspiration mostly from contemporary painters, nature, and the Royal Tenenbaums.

I am physically based in the Portland area, but I consider all of the West Coast my base. I do not charge travel fees for weddings in California, Oregon, or Washington. If you are having a destination wedding, I travel on the cheap, so don’t be afraid to inquire about rates.

I welcome everyone, all races, all religions, all countries of origin, all sexual orientation, all genders.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I cater to readerds of Offbeat Bride because I was that art school kid that would draw all over his arms, had every color hair, wore a necktie on anywhere other than the neck, and was often found sleeping in the art studio by the night cleaning crew. I believe being unique is a way of life and will encourage everyone to have the wedding of their dreams, no matter what that may look like.

If that’s not enough to make me offbeat, I have Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the series) on perpetual repeat and watch mostly horror movies. My spirit animal is Bjork and I was beyond sad when she and my favorite artist, Matthew Barney, split. I can also solve the Rubik’s cube in under 5 minutes, with my best time at 58 seconds…

“Hiring Matthew as our wedding photographer was one of the best wedding decisions we made. Not only was his photography gorgeous, but he was so easy to work with from the very beginning to the end. Matthew is so friendly that we felt like we had hired a friend to be our photographer. That really helped us to feel more comfortable with what could potentially be a really awkward process for those who aren't always in front of the camera. He listened to what we wanted and was super flexible and open with us about everything.” – Jane + Andrew
