Matt D Photography, Self Portrait, Photographer, Black and White Photography, Family Photographer, Family Photography, Raleigh, NC

It's not an easy task photographing a 3 year old and 3 month old - you never know what you are going to get but Matt somehow captured each moment perfectly! 

  • What types of photography do you offer?
    We're a portrait photography studio so we love taking pictures of people (and animals) to tell their story! With that, we specialize in family portraits, magazine inspired glamour portraits, seniors photos, and headshots.
  • Where will the shoot take place?
    All of our photoshoots will take place in our studio in Holly Springs, NC unless we agree to shoot at an off-site location. We can control everything in from lighting to the temperature when we're in studio and we'll never have to worry about unexpected weather ruining your photoshoot.
  • How long will my session take?
    A typical session takes 3-4 hours; 1-1.5 hours for hair and makeup, 2 hours of shooting, the remaining time is used to look over products, and to talk about the next steps.
  • What happens if I need to reschedule?
    We understand that sometimes life happens, so we allow for one reschedule as long as it's no less than 7 days before your session. Additional rescheduling will be subject to additional fees.
  • How should I prepare for my photo shoot?
    Drink plenty of water! Other than proper hydration we'll be sending you a guide that has information about everything you'll need to do prior to your photo shoot.
  • What should I wear?
    You'll spend the first hour with our hair and makeup artist so wear something comfortable that's easy to change out of. After you're done with hair and makeup, we'll go over your outfits and come up with a game plan for your session!
  • When do I get to see my photos?
    We'll schedule your ordering appointment immediately after your session is finished. You'll typically come in 3-4 days later where you'll see your images and decide which ones you'll want to keep forever.
  • How much are your packages?
    All of our photo sessions have a session fee of $400 that is separate from our products and packages. Most of our clients spend around $3600 on packages or products, but we have packages starting at $1550 for 5 images. We have various à la carte options, including individual images, as well as payment plan options to work within your budget.
  • What's your editing style?
    Our retouching is very subtle! We'll never manipulate your body in editing unless you request it, and we take meticulous notes during your ordering appointment about edits you'd like us to make. Our goal is to present you with remarkable images that show you as your true self!

"We had such a wonderful experience having Matt photograph our family! I was a little nervous having two young children about how it would go, but Matt was engaging with our toddler and patient with our smallest! He was able to get some beautiful pictures, and we all had so much fun!"

Matt did a phenomenal job photographing my children...and I have a very challenging son to say the least! Matt was extremely patient and turned it into a fun experience for my kids.
