Together, we make a powerful team - with Kelly's eye for detail and heart for giving a wonderful experience to our couples, and Matlock's years of knowledge and technical skill, we have the opportunity to preserve the love stories of our clients!

We're also engaged ourselves and have been together for 3 years. We actually met when Matlock was visiting Chicago for a business trip and Kelly still lived there. We spent our first date eating deep dish pizza, strolling the streets of River North, and drinking lots of wine and talking all night long! After Matlock went back home to Florida, and 3 months of texting later, Kelly visited Tampa and never went back to Chicago!

For us, we're in this business to make a positive influence on marriages. This is your story and these images? They're the beginning of your new legacy together and they'll be what tells your story to the rest of the world. We'll guide you through the entire photographic experience so you not only enjoy every minute of it, but love how you look and feel as well. We are truly honored to be apart of it all.


hey, we're matlock & kelly

Matlock & Kelly

how we're different

How we're different

A lot of wedding photography is created with photojournalism at its core.

And while there's nothing wrong with that, it's never really how we would describe our work.

Although we do like to take a step back and capture moments as they naturally unfold, we also style, curate, direct and guide you through the entire experience. We're right there with you through it all.

Because telling your story through these images takes planning, thought and skill - kind of like writing a book! And your story deserves to be told in the highest quality with the finest work.

We're here to guide you through an incredible photographic experience and provide you with beautiful images that will be passed down and cherished for generations to come.

our cat, finn

Two years ago we FaceTimed our cat and fell in love. We picked him up in Orlando and he has become a big part of our little family! He's our editing assistant who ends up falling asleep on the job wayyy too often.


We're totally those people at Starbucks that order a blonde latte with rhistretto shots at 135 degrees, and we're totally okay with that! We have the Breville Barista Express at home and we've agreed its the best investment we've ever made!


We had our first Sprinkles cupcake in Chicago on our first date! And ever since, we've loved going to the little cupcake ATM any chance we get to eat our favorite flavor, red velvet!

Date nights

One of our favorite ways to spend time together is to try new restaurants, venture out to new cities and try unique food (on our 3rd anniversary, Kelly learned she didn't like escargot!) And our favorite date night spot is Hyde Park in Tampa!

Our couples have the sweetest things to say

"I was so impressed with everything about Matlock and Kelly. They took our engagement photos and we were SO HAPPY with how they came out! People keep telling us they look like they were shot for a movie! The entire experience was so special and they made us feel comfortable in front of the camera!"
