Born on a military base in Germany, Matt grew up a bit of a “military brat,” which afforded him the opportunity to become a young world traveler.

Matt and his team shoot 60+ weddings per year, along with various other projects, events, portraits, etc. Matt Ramos Photography, LLC was founded and has been in business since 2003 (15 Years).

Clients can expect to see a wide variety of images, involving multiple styles of photography (classic black & whites, candids, family portraits, details, photojournalism, etc). However, creating compelling & creative images is what motivates him most, and what each client should also expect to see in their wedding images. Matt works very hard to create a more relaxed environment and experience for his clients, resulting in a much more natural and fun experience. He also enjoys working with each couple to personalize and appropriately match their style & look (country/park, urban/city, etc).
Matt also has a very unique & polished editing style that is very important in terms of creating the “Matt Ramos Look.” You can often tell a Matt Ramos image simply by it’s edit & style, without even seeing the logo, which is something he & his team take great pride in. It’s not just how the photo was shot, but what’s done with it afterward, to give it that wow factor.
Matt has been published in various magazines, wedding blogs & websites. Some of which include, shooting 2 covers of WellWed Magazine, a cover of Enchanted Weddings Magazine, multiple featured weddings in Her Life Magazine, Martha Stewart Weddings, the Huffington Post, and David Tutera.
