I've always believed that the best photos happen in the moments when you are truly being yourself. Because of this, I strive to make each and every portrait session as stress-free and enjoyable as possible. I know it's hard to be natural in front of a stranger with a camera. That's why I treat each Tokyo portrait session as the unique occasion that it is, and create a connection with each client beforehand. Here are just a few of the clients I've had the pleasure of working with and what they have to say about our experience working together.
Having worked with Matt to shoot promo photos for our food tour business, I cannot recommend him highly enough. From start to finish, Matt is professional, engaging and infinitely creative. He has a clear vision and works well to blend what he knows will look great with your own ideas.
The finished photographs were brilliant with a bright and energetic theme that allowed our customers to really understand the message behind our business. Matt made sure that each shot really captured the ideas we had in our mind. Not only creative and talented, Matt is the kindest and most caring photographer, and I felt instantly comfortable while shooting with him.
All in all, a wonderful experience and would 100% recommend that businesses, families, solo shoots, and events hire Matt to capture your special moments.

Do something for yourself. Capture a moment in Japan! I didn’t want the standard “posed” pictures. Matt’s street photography grabbed my eye. He did not disappoint! He made my 16 year-old son feel immediately at ease. A difficult task when the only smile he usually expresses is a “fake” smile.
Matt captured some of the adjustment to growing up with a single mother, letting go, and finding his voice in Japan. Thank you, Matt, for capturing a beautiful rainy morning in the Asakusa neighborhood, which was perfect for our little Seattle family.
Matt goes above and beyond to make you happy, comfortable, and he is a true artist. Get him while you still can!
Matt helped take our family photos, and we were amazed. All the photos were natural looking, without feeling fake or posed. Matt made the whole experience feel so comfortable that we weren't even aware he was taking shots.
The shoot was at Shinjuku Park. We had our 1.5 year old son with us and he had lots of fun. My wife, who doesn’t like attention, did not feel nervous at all. We could play naturally and Matt captured all the great moments. No nervous or fake smiles. In fact, Matt took so many good shots that we now have a hard time choosing which ones to hang!
Thank you, Matt!
Matt was amazing to work with! It was our first time in Japan and he had a lot of great recommendations for places to take photos, as well as places for us to check out in Tokyo after we finished. Neither of us are particularly photogenic or comfortable in front of a camera but he managed to take some awesome pictures of us and we absolutely loved all of the pictures we got back! We would absolutely recommend Matt as your photographer!!
I recently won the chance to have a photo shoot with Matt as part of a charity raffle, and needless to say I am more than happy with the finished product – enough so that I’ve been inspired to take up photography myself!
