About us

xoxo, matlock & kelly

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 4 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! Three months later Kelly visited Matlock in Tampa and never went back to Chicago!

But truth be told, none of this is about us; it's about you. We're here to guide you through a fun and enjoyable photographic experience; one with lots of laughter, happiness and love. We are truly honored to witness it all and we can't wait to capture these wonderful moments with you.

Meet Matlock & Kelly

We were born on opposite sides of the country - Matlock in Los Angeles and Kelly in Chicago. Matlock traveled the world as Kelly stayed in one place, and as fate would have it, we happened to meet in the heart of downtown Chicago. It wasn't long until we moved in together in a cozy apartment in Tampa.

Since then, we've traveled around the U.S. documenting love stories for couples and their families. But regardless of where we travel, the tall palm trees and warm salty air of Florida will always be our home. 

Love, adventure and tradition bring us joy.

We kind of love looking at all the Enneagram drawings on Instagram - it always seems like they totally get us! Kelly is a 3w2 and Matlock is an 8w7.

We're complete suckers for a perfectly crafted latte, but I think what we love most about it is the experience that comes with it. Slowly sipping on our drinks as we take a stroll down the street catching up on each other's lives is one of our favorite things!

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

AWARDS & RECOGNITION

marry me tampa bay
hey wedding lady

we have been featured in the following publications

Voted the knot best of weddings 2019

we’re thankful for these awards

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.
