Client Reviews


First some background: I’m an executive for the world’s most recognized media brand. I hire vendors and photographers for events all the time. And as you might expect, I’m very opinionated and have incredibly high expectations. Matthew Speck did not disappoint. Unlike most Denver-area photogs who specialize in gag-inducing, Vaseline-filtered, whimsical photos in fields of wildflowers, Matt does beautiful editorial and documentary-style photography. Think Vanity Fair. Not Sound of Music. Bonus: he’s a super cool guy. Made us very comfortable. Delivered a bunch of photos early to make magazine deadlines etc. Plus, he’s down with the gays. Talented. Fun. Cool. A+ We loved working w Matthew Speck. And we loved his work. I wholeheartedly endorse him. Lock him in ASAP if he’s available for your date. Trust me.


If you're like us, Matt is the wedding photographer for you and I'll tell you why (1) You want amazingly creative photos you can hang in your home and office that will look like ART, like you were the focus of an editorial spread while still keeping it real and documenting all the people and things you spent months planning and dreaming about. HE'S GOT YOU. (2) He will make you so comfortable and do enough prep work with you that you will feel like he's your bro on the day and you'll relax and be your beautiful self in front of the lens. HE DID THAT FOR US AND I HATE TO BE PHOTOGRAPHED. (3) You want someone you can trust to show up, talk nicely to your family and friends, keep things moving, be at the right place at the right time... SEE ABOVE (4) You want to cry when you get your photos back and re-live the parts of your day that you didn't quite get to absorb because you were busy being "on" and trying to take it all in. Plus you only have two eyes. HE WILL GIVE THAT TO YOU, YOU WILL CRY TEARS OF JOY. As someone with a photography and design background who has produced many many photo shoots for television, I half pitied the person we booked, my bar is high for aesthetic and quality, and I'm very bossy (I'm ok with it) HE PUT UP WITH ME, and even better, made me feel so confident that I wasn't even that girl on that day. I found my dream mate, I found my dream photographer, I have ART on my walls AND I LOVE THAT. Thank you for everything, Matt!!!!


Matt was absolutely amazing! He was super chill and calming to me all day. He was great to have around and was great at keeping everyone on track with pictures. He would check in on me and my husband to make sure we were doing good. He has a great visions for photos. There was one moment were he was taking my husband and me off to do private photos while everyone was still eating. As we were walking away, and far from everyone else, our DJ accidentally started to play our first song mixed in with the dinner music. Of course I started to freak out a bit, but Matt right away calmed me down and said that we could have our first dance right there, under the lights by a creek. He was able to capture a beautiful private moment with me and my new husband and I wouldn't of had it any other way. He even went and talked to the DJ for me afterwards to smooth things out. Matt was able to take a bad situation and make it into something absolutely amazing and unforgettable! I can't wait to get my pictures back and will definitely be using Matt for any future photos! Thank you sooo much Matt for making our day very special!


Matt was an absolute pleasure to work with. He truly is an artist, and watching him work is amazing. He really gets excited when he sees the perfect shot, and we had a blast shooting with him. He has a very easy-going personality, and was able to capture so many once in a lifetime moments that we'll cherish for the rest of our lives. Matt is a super cool dude and just having him around helped me and my wife calm down and enjoy our special day. My wife and I normally feel awkward in front of cameras , and both consider ourselves to be 'un-photogenic' - but Matt is such a great natural director, and was able to get some breathtaking posed shots as well as some timeless candids. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. We shopped around before booking, and he comes highly recommended by other professional photographers as "someone I would trust to shoot my own wedding". His rates are more than reasonable, especially considering how many photos he sent over - and though he shot without a partner, he somehow managed to be everywhere at once! We are still re-living our big day! Booking a photographer can be such a scary leap of faith – there are so many options, and the stakes are so high. We're so happy we found Matt! If he's available for your special day, book Matthew Speck immediately! You won't be disappointed!

You spend months planning your wedding and then *poof* it is over in a blink of an eye. We knew that when we were searching for a photographer we were looking for someone who could capture the love, excitement and beauty of the day. Matt did exactly that. On the day of the event, I was a bundle of nerves, but Matt's calm, collected and confident nature put me (and my wedding party, especially my mother!) at ease. When we received our photos, my partner and I cried all over again because Matt had captured every emotion so beautifully.


Matt was absolutely fantastic to work with. He was very easy going and laid back from our first meeting all the way through our wedding celebration. Neither my husband or myself are very comfortable in photos and adding to that general wedding nerves we really thought we would both look nervous and awkward in our photos. However Matts attitude managed to put our nerves at ease and he captured beautiful images. We could not be happier with the outcome! He was great getting images of our guests and reception as well, and multiple people commented on how friendly he was while interacting with friends and family members. You can tell he really does love what he does!
What everyone says is right the day really is over in the blink of an eye, and I am so glad we have the beautiful photos taken by Matt to remember it by!


Matthew was everything we could have hoped for in a photographer. We knew we wanted him to shoot our wedding and booked him immediately after we got engaged. First he shot our engagement photos in the dead of winter in Estes Park, and I've never had so much fun in negative degree weather. We kept in conversation with him the whole year before the big day. He made the process so carefree and easy. The day of, I had so much fun posing for shots and exploring our wedding venue with him. I could have spent the whole day taking photos. One of my favorite parts of the entire day. His style and technique are consistently amazing across the board, and having someone so reliable and talented on our vendor team made it completely stress free and one less thing to worry about. As a photographer myself I couldn't be happier with my wedding photos. For me, this was certainly the most important aspect of my wedding day, next to the venue and the dress, and I literally didn't worry once about it the entire year. He really delivered. Matthew captured our wedding day in a way the truly conveys the fairytale story we lived that day, and we will remember it that way for the rest of our lives.
