Your San Diego and Orange County Family & Wedding Photographer


I have been a photographer for over 10 years serving both San Diego & Orange County. It has been such a joy seeing my clients year after year as I've photographed them in all seasons of life. 

I'm a family photographer with a love for telling stories through the lens of my camera, and an uncanny knack for getting fussy toddlers to smile! I believe life is all about finding reasons to celebrate. 

My mission is to provide you with beautiful photographs and an amazing photographic experience. I want you to look back and remember how fun it was during your session with your loved ones!

"Mattie completely exceeded our expectations when it came to our family photos. She made the entire process so easy and was extremely accommodating. With her strong eye for detail and natural talent, she was able to capture photos of our family that we truly cherish. She optimized our images by directing and posing our family in a way that felt natural and comfortable. The final product left us with a variety of photos that were special in their own way. It is evident that she knows what she is doing!"

"Mattie is an incredible photographer.  She was so good with our kids and we got way more shots of them smiling than in any of the other photo shoots we had done with other photographers. Another thing that Mattie is really talented at are poses. She had us try different poses that were really flattering for all members of our family. If you are looking for a photographer who is great with kids, easy to work with and incredibly talented when it comes to technical expertise, then look no further than Mattie. Best family pictures and photography experience we have ever had!"
