"Matthew Danser is the best photographer you will ever have the pleasure of working with! When looking for a photographer there are many things to consider. At the top of that list should be how well the photos will come out. Anyone that tells you they only use natural light is an amateur with a camera, so don’t waste your time and just hire the best person first. Matthew is a genius with lighting, color, capturing emotion and his photos reflect that. Just take a look at any of his client galleries and you will instantly know how adaptive he is, be it to dim or it be too much sun to combat against. In lieu of having all your guests disappear due to shadows from harsh natural light sources or them looking like vampires from too much camera flash, you will see their smiling faces and get some very artistic, colorful shots for all those special moments. Matthew also has rather highly regarded characteristics about him that is rare among the artistic types. Matthew is quick to reply, communicates well and is prompt. I can’t tell you how nice it is to have quick replies and open communication. He is also very good with people and has a calming demeanor about him. He can even get a little flower girl to calm down and smile for the camera on queue! My wife and I used Matthew Danser for both engagement and wedding photos and could not be more thrilled with the outcome. Already knowing how capable of a photographer Matthew was, we opted for an unplugged wedding, which means we requested that neither photos nor video be taken by our guests. We opted for this because we knew the quality of Matthews’s pictures would be perfect and also knew that if Matthew did not have to combat against other camera flashes, we would have perfect pictures of all those special moments that we will be able to reflect upon as we grow old together!"
"Matt was such an amazing wedding photographer! He went above and beyond to make sure we were completely happy with not just the wedding pictures, but our engagement pictures he took also. He even surprised us with a gift on our wedding day. So thoughtful!! He worked his tail off at the wedding getting sooo many wonderful pictures. My mother in law said they were the most beautiful and thorough wedding pictures she has ever seen!! I highly recommend Matt as a photographer. We are so very happy with all the photos!"
"Matt is an awesome photographer!!! I wasn't really looking forward to being in the hot sun with my dress and taking pictures for an hour but Matt made it a blast! He really knows how to make you laugh and really enjoy taking pictures!"
"Matt was AMAZING! First, my fiancee and I had a great experience working with him for our engagement photo shoot. He was always very responsive and easy to communicate with in preparation for the shoot and he made us feel really comfortable the entire time. We liked that he gave us different scenery options to pick from and we were able to do several different poses, as well as bring our own props! He worked in our ideas to his overall vision and we were so pleased with the results. In preparation for the wedding, Matt made us feel so comfortable and paid attention to the details needed to capture every moment of the wedding. Matt's package that includes a second photographer and unlimited shooting was definitely the way to go, as he was there with us every step of the way on our big day and we had so many different camera angle shots to choose from. We are so pleased with all of our photos and look forward to working with Matt to put together the best ones in our wedding album. Matt has a great personality, is very passionate and professional and produces a great product for a very reasonable price. We couldn't have been more pleased."
"I just shot my bridal portraits with Matt and I couldn't be happier! My pictures came out amazing...and I am my toughest critic. He was professional, personable and stayed longer just to make sure he had the perfect shots of me. I highly recommend Matt!!!"
"Matthew gave us such personalized service and took in every note and request that we had. He worked his butt off during our wedding and had a ton of amazing photos to show for it. He really captured the energy during our reception and the intimacy of our ceremony. On top of all that, Matthew was amazingly fast at getting our photos edited and sent back to us. We loved working with him. Highly recommended!"
"I looked at a lot of photographers’ portfolios online and was generally unimpressed until I found Matt. As soon as I saw his website, I knew I had to meet with him. Anyone can buy an expensive camera and start taking pictures, but Matt is an artist. He has the kind of talent that only a great few are blessed with. Matt is one of the friendliest people you will ever meet and also very professional. I did a boudoir shoot with him before the wedding as a gift for my husband. We were completely blown away. It made me think he might actually be more magician than photographer. The day of our wedding Matt showed up early to get a feel for the venue. He took the time to meet our family and friends. It was like he had known us all for years. He blended right in and had a smile on his face the whole time. You can tell he loves his work. We got too see the wedding photos about three weeks later (there were about 500 of them) and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. Matt captured every special moment and then some. We get so many compliments on our wedding photos. Even if I had all day, I couldn't say enough good things about Matt. He was nothing but a pleasure to work with the whole time and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer."
"We hired Matt for our engagement photos, as our wedding photographer is a relative from out of state. We chose him because we liked his work posted online and his reasonable pricing. Neither my fiance or I are really in to getting our photos taken, and felt a little uncomfortable at the prospect of a couple of hours of having the camera on us. But, as it turned out Matt made the experience a comfortable and fun one. He is very laid back and easy going and does a good job of giving some gentle direction without creating stiff poses or overly awkward and unnatural ones. It actually turned out fun! We shot at two locations in Austin, the botanical gardens, which were beautiful and on the east side by a mural that caught our eye. As it turned out we had a little extra time left so Matt asked if we just wanted to walk around and see what nice settings were around. As it turned out those images are among are favorites! Matt posted the edited images online within only 2-3 days and sent the disc of high-res images in under a week. All in all it was a great experience."
"My fiancé and I used Matthew for our engagement photos and we absolutely loved them! We got engaged in April and started planning our destination wedding right away. Our wedding is in July, so Matthew understood we were in a hurry to get our pictures taken for our invitations. Matthew was so accommodating and easy to work with. He met with us on a Sunday and had our pictures ready within a few days. We had so much fun at the shoot and Matthew was patient with my picky demands the entire time! We were so happy with the pictures and were so thankful Matthew was willing to work with our tight deadline. I definitely plan to use Matthew for my bridal portraits when my gown arrives!"
"Matt, you are AWESOME! We have professional photographers as friends (they don't do weddings and we don't like to ask friends for things like that). And, let me tell you, they are raving about our pictures from Matt. Matter of fact, every person that has seen our pictures have been amazed. There is a certain recipe needed for a good photographer. You can't just have the best equipment and cameras, you have to have an eye for the right shot, you have to have the right attitude and you have to have the right energy. You have to flow well, communicate and most of all listen. All of these things Matthew excels at. He blew us away with the shots he captured. His photos are worth double in my opinion. I know this because we shopped photographers and we know what professional pictures cost. This is your guy if you need pictures of your wedding. Oh and one last thing, I have no idea how he got so many great shots as I hardly even noticed him during the wedding ceremony and reception. Really, the guy is like a ninja! Thank you Matt! You were our favorite vendor by far and a pleasure to work with. We look forward to using you for our family photo's."
"We've had so many positive comments on our wedding photos, but they are icing on the cake because we already thought that Matt did splendid work. He is an artist, combining excellent composition with excellent color and lighting. We looked great in the photos. More importantly, because we had such a tiny wedding, we felt that we wanted to share the experience of "being there" with our extended families and our friends; he made that possible. He was a real joy to work with. I highly recommend him."
"Matt is an AMAZING photographer!! He did both our engagement photos and wedding photos and we were so happy with all the pictures!! Matt is creative and he has a great attention to detail. Leading up to the wedding he was great and really listened to what we were looking for. On the day of the wedding he did a great job with getting all the perfect shots. He was able to capture all of the sweet moments throughout the wedding and we were so happy and impressed with the way the pictures turned out. Plus, we got our pictures back so quickly! We received so many compliments from friends and family on all of our photos. We definitely recommend Matt!"
"I have so many AMAZING things to say about this gentlemen, and his Talent, I don't even know where to start!!! But, I have been dying to have a platform to give Matt a review and share our AMAZING experiance working with him at our wedding!! I mean this guy has it! The Real Deal talent, and so professional!!! My videographer was a no show, we were devastated!!! And though I would love to watch my wedding on video, it's almost unnecassary, as Matt did such an Amazing job at capturing Everything, in the most gorgeous wedding pictures that I have ever seen!! REALLY! He nailed it!!! Not to mention, he is Affordable! I was literally considering not even having a professional photographer, due to the price quotes I was getting. Everyone was asking a fortune and giving a time restriction. That's when a friend told me about Matt. I got on his FB page and was blown away with his photographs! So unique, exactly what we were looking for! Someone with a creative edge, and boy did he come through!! I have looked at some BEAUTFUL wedding photos, and I am proud to say that, MINE ARE BETTER!!! ;) AND, I spent a FRACTION of the price of my fellow brides!!! Matt captured everything from start to finish, he made me feel comfortable and beautiful! He was attentive to cover not only the wedding party but the venue and guests as well! He is now my family and friends "Go To Photographer," for all purposes! Family portraits, birthdays, weddings and now he has recently added the coverage of ACL music Festival to his resume!! I can't say enough wonderful things about him and our experiance with him! He really gets to know you before the event, to get an idea of your personality, your expectations and Your unique style! STOP LOOKING!! YOU FOUND YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER!!! Matthew Danser Photography is where it's at! Seach no more! And may your day be as special as ours!"
"Matt did an amazing job at my daughter's wedding. He spent the entire day at the wedding venue, many times surrounded by kids and did a great job catching even the littlest ones at their best. He spent a lot of time trying to get a very large family shot and managed to get everyone smiling. He has a very good eye for unusual shots .. very artistic. He was a fraction of even the lowest bid we received yet still excellent quality. Would highly recommend him!"
"We had the honor of having Matt take pictures at our outdoor summer wedding. He was great to work with and has an eye for capturing moments and a talent for composing great photographs. He was prompt with the timing and got the edited pictures back to us very quickly. We are so happy with the pictures, and we highly recommend him!"
