We had our first (of many to come) experiences with Matthew this fall for our family pictures. He is simply amazing. Not only did he manage to make us all feel very natural and at home, he also was able to coax out some fabulous natural looking smiles from our kids who are notorious for that. His editing is also wonderful- the light and angles he chooses for each picture really makes them extra special.
Just wanted to give you a HUGE thank you for the wonderful photos you provided – and in such a quick turnaround!!! It’s so great to have these photos to display to friends, family, and neighbors during the holiday season! Next year, I hope we can make the Mandi/Inadomi/collett (my sister) photos an annual tradition!
Matt has taken our family photos for the last few years and we have always loved the images he captures. The photos shoots are fun and energetic and he has a natural talent for making you feel at ease in front of the camera. We highly recommend him!
Matt is a very talented photographer (and videographer) and I would hands-down have him take our family pictures again. From the moment you meet him you can tell he’s very passionate about photography and most importantly FAMILY. He has a special way of making you feel at ease and capturing special moments, sometimes without you even knowing. He’s that GOOD! I received so many compliments on my family photos from the picturesque location (which Matt hand-picked) to the candid moments he captured. We absolutely love our photos and will treasure them forever. I would highly recommend Matt for all of your photography needs.

We’ve had more than a few family photo sessions with Matt…& we will get our family photos done by him for as long as we can! He instantly makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera & knows how to direct you in a way that brings out everyone’s best. Taking photos of high-energy kids is no easy task…but he actually makes it feel fun & he has always been SO patient with our littles! Somehow he manages to capture the exact moment where our girls’ personalities shine the brightest & you can actually feel the moment through the photos.
Matthew instantly made us feel relaxed. We had a great time during out session and the pictures turned out great. The whole experience was perfect!
Matt has taken our annual family photos for the past two years. Both times, the weather conditions weren’t ideal and not easy getting two squirmy boys to cooperate at the same time. But Matt made the sessions fun and candid. When we got our final edits back we loved every single shot! Having beautiful photos for Christmas cards, family gifts, and memories we can keep in our home for a lifetime is priceless.
Sidewalk and Chalk has been such a pleasure to work with. The process from start to finish was fun and easier, and our photos came back fast! Our experience was beyond expectations. I love that you don’t just take pictures, you capture moments. Matthew is incredibly talented and we look forward to having him as our family photographer again in the future!
Working with Sidewalk and Chalk is a fantastic experience for the whole family. Matthew is incredibly warm and makes everyone in his presence feel comfortable and confident. It didn’t feel like a photo session, it felt like a fun and light, shared experience. My children immediately warmed up and enjoyed the process. Sidewalk and Chalk captures those little moments of connection that I most want to cherish with my loved ones.
I can not say enough positive things regarding our experience working with Sidewalk&Chalk. We have had many professional photo sessions and this was hands down the best experience. We received beautiful, natural photos of my family.
Matt was extremely flexible and easy to work with. We received our edited photos extremely fast as well.
Matthew with Sidewalk&Chalk photography made our family photo session fun and painless. The edited photos came quickly and were BEAUTIFUL! We had my in-laws along to take a few photos with us and the kids. Matthew ushered them in and out with ease. We were more than pleased with our experience and will be planning to have Matthew take our family photos for years to come!
Because Matthew is so relaxed and easy going, he was amazing with my kids! My children are naturally she and quiet but he was able to quickly make them feel comfortable. He is great at capturing the moments in between, which is what makes his photography so special.
Sidewalk and chalk was amazing to work with! Matt really know how to keep the kids attention, make it quick and still get a great shot. Can’t recommend him enough!
Matt is an excellent photographer. Our photo turned out perfectly even though he had to wrangle four people and 3 active dogs. We had so many good pictures to choose from including many candid shots that were really great. We now have pictures we can print and frame, pictures for our holiday cards and even individual shots of use on our social media LinkedIn. Matt had the expertise to factor in different backgrounds and variable lighting conditions so we always got the best picture. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced family photographer.
