VANCOUVER WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

      Welcome! I’m so happy that you’ve landed on my website. While you’re here, there are a few things I’d love for you to know; firstly- breathe. Wedding planning can be arduous, but I aim to be the easy part. Whether you are shy, adventurous, wild, or straight-up awkward in front of the camera, you are the ideal model for your wedding day. My ethos is that the genuine, authentic moments of your wedding are caught in the most beautiful and creative light possible. Though my life is split between Vancouver and Cape Town (and celebrations everywhere in between) and may seem crazy to some, my work is anything but. In me you will find professional, timeless wedding photography that reflects YOU and your values, and have a great time along the way. Let’s get started!

      KIND WORDS

      Mathias was amazing. His work is stunning and I could not have asked for a more creative, skilled and fantastic photography on my wedding day. His attention to detail, eye for getting the perfect shot and the ability to capture the magic moments were incredible. Thank you Mathias for your positive attitude, enthusiasm and overall professionalism throughout this whole process. Your work was so incredible that we're most likely going to wallpaper our entire house with your photos! Thank you for everything. - Kerrie + Justin

      KIND WORDS

      Mathias is extremely good at what he does. I stumbled upon his work unexpectedly and instantly fell in love with the warmth he brings to his images. My husband and I knew that he'd be the perfect choice to do our engagement and wedding photos! He was always pleasant and thoughtful in our interactions with him and he was responsive and professional throughout the entire process. So grateful to have the most beautiful memories from our wedding! I have and will continue to recommend him to anyone seeking wedding photography! - Susie + Bram

      KIND WORDS

      What to say… I cannot speak highly enough of Mathias and the joy and passion he brought to our wedding weekend. He first photographed our engagement in Whistler, and made me and my now wife feel so comfortable and at ease that we just had to have him photograph our wedding in Tuscany. Over the course of the weekend, it really felt like we had just another friend behind the camera, which added a priceless element to the day. This all without mentioning the quality of the pictures, which are totally unrivaled. We were completely blown away when he sent them through after just 2 months and we can’t stop looking at them. Anyone can pick up a camera and take pictures but Mathias as an eye for a shot that most wouldn’t even dream of.
      We are hopeful our paths will cross again soon and can’t recommend Mathias enough! Thanks mate. - Michael + Chloe

      KIND WORDS

      My wife Jennie and I had the pleasure of enjoying Mathias' services on our wedding day. Having heard great things about Mathias' photography, and seeing them firsthand on his Instagram page, we felt confident in the job that he would do on our wedding day. Mathias was extremely attentive throughout the whole process; from the first engagement photo shoot all the way through until the end of our wedding night, he effortlessly captured everything that we had hoped for. During and after our wedding, we heard our family and friends marvel at how unobtrusive he was during the whole experience, while still capturing everything that we had wanted during the night. Aside from his very obvious and breathtaking photography skills, he is personable, charming, and clearly takes his job very seriously. We could not be happier with the job that he did and would give him the absolute highest recommendation possible for a wedding photographer. - Jennie + Spencer

      KIND WORDS

      We were so fortunate to work with Mathias as he photographed our wedding earlier this year. My husband is a hobby photographer so I knew he was going to be incredibly picky while we made our selection but we both gravitated to Mathias' work as he did a beautiful job photographing one of my friend's weddings earlier that year and after looking over his stunning blog.
      After our initial consult, we were very excited to work with Mathias - his open, kind, calm, and professional attitude came through right off the bat. We locked him in for our engagement photos and wedding date immediately.
      Mathias never made us feel posed or awkward, and it shows in the photos - authentic, creative, and capturing a moment just right. We are so grateful to have Mathias' beautiful photographs as a memory of the evening to share with my family and friends forever. - Michael + Laura
