People & Portrait Photography
Whether it's just capturing a moment, taking a great new profile picture, or getting graduation photos - hiring a professional photographer is a great way to stand out from the rest.
35mm Film Photography
I started doing 35mm photography after picking up a Minolta Maxxum 3000i. I ran a Lomography Lomowalk in Beacon and have a working relationship with the film company to help promote the lovely art of analog photography.
My passion for photography started with shooting concerts. I've shot a lot of bands, like Affiance, Sirens & Sailors, Senses Fail, Miss May I, The Plot in You, and more.
Wedding, Maternity & Engagement Photography
Capturing beautiful moments is one of the best parts about being a photographer. My favorite shoots are always with couples.

Matthew Alexander's Atlanta Photography FAQs
What Camera Do You Shoot With?
I use a Sony A7 III with a Sony FE 1.8 50mm Lens. It captures rich images in low-light and beautiful, colorful pictures in daylight or studio lighting. I also have a Minolta 3000i film camera that I use for fun, sometimes, which creates authentic 35mm film photos that can't be replicated by digital.
Do You Have Your Own Lighting Equipment?
I have some basic, portable lighting for indoor and outdoor shoots. For more complicated requests, I rent equipment from Apeturent.
I've Never Done a Photoshoot Before and I'm Very Nervous. Will You Help Decide Location and Poses?
Absolutely! Most photoshoots I do are with people who have never been the subject of a professional photograph before. I'll make sure to make you comfortable and help you with the whole process - from wardrobe, poses, lighting - and I can even work with other individuals (makeup artists, videographers). My goal is to make sure that you are comfortable with shooting with me, and that you have an excellent time and are happy with the end result.
Who Owns the Photos You Take?
In most cases, I retain ownership of the photos, but you have license to use them as you like. Make sure to check your contract for the specific details of the ownership of your photography. If you need full and exclusive ownership of the photos, make sure to note it in our consult, as it may change the price of your package.
May I Have The Raw Files?
In most cases - I will provide you with edited .jpg files. If you require RAW files for any reason, make sure to note it in our consult, as it may change the price of your package.
May I Edit the Photos After You Provide Them?
It varies contract to contract, but I prefer that you do not alter, crop, adjust, re-color, or use filters on any photographs that I provide. I also prefer that you tag me and credit me in any online or print usage of my photos. If you require the ability to alter your own photos, please make note of it in our consult, as it may change the price of your package. I work very hard to make sure you are satisfied with the end product, and would rather re-edit them myself if you are not fully satisfied with the way that your photos came out.
Do You Do Nude or Boudoir Photography?
Certainly - art is art! It does not matter your gender, either. We will both sign a boudoir contract and agreement and you will provide legal documentation prior to the shoot that you are of legal age to be a part of any suggestive, semi-nude, or fully nude photography. This agreement protects your rights as a model, and ensures your privacy when it comes to sensitive materials.
May I Bring Someone With Me To My Shoot?
Yes - I encourage people to be surrounded by the things and people that make them the most comfortable. If you need a professional make-up artist, or you wish to have people involved with the shoot, or just want the extra company, you're more than welcome to bring someone - just notify me ahead of time!
Are You a LGBTQIA+ friendly photographer?
100%. I fully support the LGBTQIA+ community and love working with people of all walks of life. If you have a LGBTQIA wedding, engagement, or maternity shoot, I will gladly work with you. Anyone who doesn't is a jerk. If you or any of the subjects in the shoot have preferred pronouns, please let me know ahead of the shoot so I can make sure to properly address you.
Will You Travel Outside of Atlanta for Photography?
Absolutely, but it depends on where the location is, and you may need to cover travel costs. To see if I’ll do photography in nearby areas, contact me directly. I have done photoshoots in New York, Charlotte, Spartanburg, Charleston, and other places.
