Matthew Yeaton Photography | Word of Mouth

Here are some examples of what previous clients and vendors have said about Matthew Yeaton Photography:


Tim and I were very lucky to find Matt and Sarah. They are such an amazing couple personally and professionally.  They each have a wonderful calmness about them and together it is doubled, which we really appreciated.  Matt was our photographer for our engagement photos and Matt and Sarah photographed our wedding. Like most men, Tim was not jazzed about having engagement photos taken, but as soon as we met Matt, Tim totally relaxed and really enjoyed the shoot.  Matt had wonderful ideas but also just listened to us and let things happen naturally which put us at ease.  Since I was new at this, I naturally had many questions.  I would call Matt randomly during the day and most often he would answer if he didn't, then I would hear back from him that same day. Matt and Sarah are very attentive to their clients and made us feel like we were their only clients.  Matt always let me know is availability and was very willing to take time out of his personal life to speak with me.  I asked some pretty ridiculous questions and Matt answered them in a very honest and non nonchalant way that put any anxiety I had to rest.  During our wedding photos with family and the bridal party Matt and Sarah were amazing. They worked so well together discussing the shot and the best angles or set up. Sarah was great about making sure my dress, flowers and veil were perfect. She has a great eye for those little details. Matt was terrific with placement putting together the composition of the entire photo. I received several comments from our guests about how wonderful Matt and Sarah were at the reception they were friendly, professional and non obtrusive... they were like Ninjas!  I had a list of photographs I wanted but I was completely lost in the moment at the reception and didn't want to bother with trying to gather people for posed pictures. I let Matt know and they just did their thing. It was such good feeling to have complete confidence in Matt and Sarah knowing that they captured the people and moments that we will remember for a lifetime. Thank you so much we enjoyed every moment working with you two! We will be recommending you to everyone! 

Janine and Tim

Matt and Sarah were awesome and we were so lucky they had a spot open for us. We hit it off with them from the first phone call. They had great questions and were able to figure out our style almost immediately. Our engagement shoot was a bit rainy but Matt made it look like we’d planned it that way. On the day of the wedding, Matt and Sarah were a lot of fun to be with—they didn’t feel so much like vendors, but as friends who we wanted to have shoot our wedding for us. The getting ready, first look, the family photos, and the cocktail hour pics were a ton of fun to shoot. We were even thrilled when they excitedly pulled us away from our guests for a quick sunset shoot—those are some of our favorite pictures of the wedding. Then, after the wedding, we were amazed by how many great candids they got of us and our guests. We love with our pictures and we highly recommend Matt and Sarah for weddings or any other event you might be hiring a photographer for.

Matt & Melissa

If there's one thing I wanted from my wedding it was a good, professional photographer.  I met Matt from another bride-friend who used him.  I couldn't be happier.  Matt was SUPER accommodating, professional, kind, and did everything possible to get the shots we wanted.  He was flexible when it rained and still managed to get great shots of us before/after the wet moments.  He has great "perks" where he'll post a few teaser shots within a day or two of your wedding (they looked SO good!!), he'll put up a blog about your wedding if you want, you get all the photos digitally (and on a website to share with family/friends).  Matt was always smiling and pleasant and such a joy to work with.  Don't go with anyone else!!

Julie & Tom

Matt and Sarah were fantastic to work with for our wedding photography. They were friendly, fun and amazingly professional. My husband and I met with them at the beginning stages of our wedding planning when we had no idea what we wanted. They were patient, helped us with ideas, and guided us through planning our big day. They even went the extra mile and offered ideas and vendors for other aspects of our wedding.

The actual wedding day they were both wonderful. They kept things running smoothly and on time, and on one occasion stepped in to help us when our wedding coordinator went AWOL during our cake cutting. My only regret was not keeping them for the whole day!

Everyone was amazed how quickly we got our pictures back after, and how great they looked. Matt and Sarah made sure we got all the shots we had asked for as well as surprised us with some interesting shots we would never have thought of. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your important event, be it a wedding, engagement session…anything! Love these guys and cannot thank them enough!

Desiree & Jeremy

Finding the best photographer was the most important vendor for my wedding. I researched endlessly, contacted many, and met with two vendors before finding Matt. From the moment my husband and I met with Matt and his wife, we were sold. They were very nice and professional. We instantly knew that we found our photographer. There were different packages that we were able to choose from for the wedding. Matt would always respond within the day (or a few hours) when I emailed and asked any questions. He was very flexible with our engagement session when the weather didn't cooperate the first time. When the day of our wedding came, I knew that I didn't have to worry about anything when it came to pictures. Matt and Sarah were on top of every thing. They even stopped eating dinner and took plenty of pictures when my the bridal party and I had an impromptu Celine Dion singing session. Seeing all the pictures from the day of our wedding was better than anything. They were all beautiful and I can't help but look at them all the time!

Where do we begin to tell you how thankful we are for the both of you?  You made our decision on a photographer so easy.  Everything was absolutely perfect from engagement pictures to the wedding pictures.  Every picture was breathtaking and perfect.  You were able to catch so many moments.  It was absolutely easy to work with both of you.  We can't thank you enough and we (mostly Theresa) can't stop looking at the photos!  This doesn't begin to cover how thankful we are of you! We wish you both the best with everything!  We hope to run into you in the years to come!  Don't worry we will send our crazy friends your way when the time comes!

My husband and I hired Matthew Yeaton Photography to photograph our wedding in September '14, and it was a great decision! Matt and his wife Sarah are a great team and spectacular at what they do. They are very knowledgable, but were always open to our input. When the park we planned on taking pictures in ended up having a big event we weren't previously aware of, they worked around it without any issues and the pictures came out great. During the ceremony and throughout the reception we didn't even realize they were there, but Matt made sure he got all the shots we had previously requested. In addition, pricing is very reasonable, and anytime I contacted Matt I got a response the same day. Because of Matt and Sarah we have numerous beautiful photographs to serve as memories to last a lifetime. I would highly recommend Matthew Yeaton Photograhy to anyone looking for a photographer.

Matt and Sarah are absolutely phenomenal! Having a husband and wife team was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding! They work as perfectly as you would hope when becoming a newly wed yourself. I did not give them any reference photos, I was hoping they would pull from their own creativity and they did just that! We now have beautiful timeless photos that brought tears to our whole family's eyes. One of my favorite things Matt and Sarah did was take photos of the surroundings. We have stunning pictures of the landscape around our venue. I would have never thought I would want that, but looking back it truly helps us remember exactly how the day was. It is easy and relaxing to bring ourselves back to our wedding day thanks to Matt and Sarah.

Jennifer & Thomas

Matthew & Sarah were wonderful. They had a great sense of humor and seemed to have genuinely had a good time on our wedding day. Since they had so many weddings this past fall, they let us know that it may take longer to receive our photos, but they were nice enough to accommodate us to print our thank you cards early. They were so flexible and responsive throughout the process. My husband and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. We are extremely happy with our end results!


The Yeaton's were tremendous.  Awesome sense of humor and had a lot of fun working with them.  The final pictures were well of 1000 and we had so much to choose from.  Matt and Sarah did an amazing job using their creativity to capture our day and I would use them again in a heartbeat!


Matt and Sarah were amazing to work with!!! From the very first meeting until we received our beautiful flash drive in the mail they were incredible. They made choosing a photographer easy and fun. Their wedding packages are more than worth the money and the quality of work is above and beyond. Matt listened to what we wanted and didn't want and was able to capture our wedding day exactly how we wanted. Both Matt and Sarah are professional, friendly and fantastic at their job! I would recommend them to anyone looking for a professional photographer!!!

Jenna & Shawn - See their Wedding Story

Our experience with Matthew was fabulous. I was seeking for a more casual, not-too-fussy photo session with more candid shots during the reception. We appreciated Matt's sense of ease, calmness, creative control and humor during the entire wedding and reception. We appreciate his mastery and pricing - they are a perfect blend. The photos came beautiful; we both couldn't be happier! We highly recommend them!  Thank you Matthew for capturing our wedding day with proficiency and grace.

Seriously- my husband, Jeff, and I could not have been more happy to work with Matt and his wife, Sarah, on our special day, and the entire 16-months before our wedding! Jeff and I were planning the big day from our home in Utah, which was no easy process. March 2014, Jeff and I made a trip to New Hampshire to do some wedding planning. The weather was awful! Matt and Sarah were so kind (brave) to meet with us on a stormy winter night in Manchester, over 50min from their home in Rochester, to go over wedding details! In the hotel lobby, we also got to meet their two sons. In addition to having some amazing photography talent, we got to really see how great of a family network Matt and Sarah have created. 

Matthew Yeaton Photography provides great communication and listening skills, is very transparent, compassionate, and offers some fantastic, flexible, photo packages. Planning a wedding from afar, good communication with stellar photos on the photographer's website were very important for Jeff and me. In addition, we wanted a good price point. Matt offers very reasonable prices. Trust me, I did my research, and Matt gives some amazing bang for your buck. The two are also very good with technology, have a user-friendly website, and are very interactive on social media. All around good people to work with for any occasion.

The day of the wedding, Matt and Sarah arrived at a slightly stressful moment when I could not find my mom, nor get ahold of her via phone. The two were calm, friendly, and started taking shots that did not include me still in my PJ's. I immediately went from stressed to I'M SO EXCITED! As I jumped in my gown, Sarah was helping the groomsmen put on their boutonnières, and Matt didn't waste a moment searching, and arranging the logistics, for the First Look sessions. They're great, I can't say it enough.

Matthew Yeaton Photography was our favorite vendor by far! He went above and beyond our expectations and was so great to work with. He was willing to work with our tight budget and we have so many incredible memories of our engagement and wedding that were all captured in his photos!

Sarah & Mike - See their Engagement Story and Wedding Story

Matt and his wife were a spectacular team and brought a lot of calm and expertise to our wedding day! You could not ask for a kinder, more professional, or talented photographer! My photos are beautiful, and will be a treasured heirloom for years to come.

Julia & Greg - See their Wedding Story

Our day was amazing and the photos taken by Matt captured all the special moments and details in amazing quality. Matt was highly recommended to us by our wedding planner and she was spot on. We also opted to do an engagement shoot - we highly recommend this - well worth it! The photos are amazing - Matt is relevant and his photos/creativity are Pinterest-esque - we are beyond satisfied with our experience.

We love working with Matthew Yeaton Photography!  Matt and Sarah are true professionals.  Their photos are beautiful and they are so easy to work with.  We continue to recommend them to our couples!    

Emily St. Pierre, Owner of All the Fuss Events

I worked a wedding in 2013 with Matt and his wife Sarah, they are a fabulous team! Matt truly has a keen eye to catch those moments that you will treasure for years to come! They are kind and accommodating, and become more than just a photographer but they make you a friend. I would highly recommend them, and I'm excited to work another wedding with them!

Matt and Sarah were a pleasure to work with! They were very professional and courteous, but also felt like they were guests at our wedding as well. We had a great time with them and our pictures came out beautiful! - Alison

Matt and Sarah were absolutely super to work with before, during, and after our wedding. They were professional in every respect and captured not just the activities of our wedding and reception, but also the spirit. We highly recommend them!

John & Cari - See their Wedding Story

Steve and I wanted to thank you for these amazing pictures.  Words can't even describe how beautiful they are.  I'm in love with each one of them.  Both our families love them and have already said that we definitely picked a great photographer!   I just wanted to thank you again for working with our schedules to reschedule from the previous date.  Working overnights as a nurse is not easy on the life scheduling but it somehow worked for us!  And also thank you for working Momo into our shoot and getting great shots of Momo.  I was afraid of how he will be around you since he's really shy.  But he stole the show!  Thank you times a million again! Now the wedding planning shall continue!

Matthew Yeaton Photography is a member of the Rochester Bridal & Formal Events Network. I met Matt and Sarah at a wedding we both worked on over this past summer. I found them personable, easy to work with and very attentive. The pictures (all 800+ of them) were beautiful and creative and really captured the personality of the bride and groom. I continue to work with Matt in our bridal network and am always impressed by his professionalism, dedication and passion for beautiful wedding photography. It is obvious that he loves what he does. He is kind, easy to worth with and a pleasure to know. I highly recommend Matthew Yeaton Photography.

Christine Colonna, Owner/Stylist of Tresses Hair Salon

Me and my husband are SO beyond thrilled with how our wedding photography turned out! Neither one of us is really comfortable in front of the camera, Matt and Sarah were able to make us feel comfortable with them. They were so warm and welcoming, and we loved how they worked as a team. We were able to get shots that a lot of photographers miss because they can only be in one place. As far as the value, we were pleasantly surprised with their pricing! (And we really did our research before hand!) Matt got back to all of my emails and phone calls promptly, again making me feel more comfortable with our decision to go with them. Overall, I would highly recommend Matthew Yeaton Photography, and I will deffinatly be using them for all of our photographs in the future! Thank you both so, so much!!!

What would we have done without MYP at our wedding? It was like having a friend at your side the entire day and the months leading up to the wedding. Add to that the calmness my wife and I gained from having them around was something that cannot be replaced. 

Thank you MYP, you really respected our ideas and the pictures will last us a lifetime and more. We can prove it too, because we orded multiple canvas pictures that will hang in our home and hopefully children's home some day.  You can also contact us for questions regarding the excellent work of MYP.

Matt & Sarah, Thank you thank you thank you! Not enough can be said about how much you meant to our big day and the comfort you gave throughout the day and the days leading up to our amazing wedding in Jackson, NH. We absolutely love the pictures too!! Best of luck to your growing photography passion and to your wonderful family. Please use us as references going forward.

We decided very last minute to get married.  We had the perfect location, created our intimate guest list and everything was coming together quite well.  The last piece of our puzzle was the photographer.  Matt came highly recommended by another photographer who had relocated to Florida.  We checked his website and came away impressed.  We then had several conversations with Matt and, with each conversation, we became more convinced he was the right person to capture our special day.  Needless to say, he did not disappoint.  The pictures came out great but what was just as important to us was the way Matt let the day be all about us!  He was very respectful of our wishes and ideas of how the day should go.  He was certainly helpful with suggestions of what shots might work but he really let us dictate how we captured our special day. 

Matt, thank you for making our day special.  We wish you many years of success and will certainly recommend you to anyone we know who's looking for a quality photographer.

I am blessed for that Thanksgiving day in 2011 when you said "yes" to being our photographer. Bobby and I have a very close family connection to Matt, and we are the most thankful we chose him and Sarah to be a part of our special day. From the minute we booked Matt and Sarah, we not once had to worry about a thing. Both of them were very thorough and extremely comforting with everything from the meeting of how the wedding day would play out up until the very end of the BIG day.   The both of you handled one of the hottest days in the summer with the utmost grace and humility which put our minds at ease. Thank you, we love you, the pictures are gorgeous, and you both come highly recommended.  ~ Katie

When my wife and I first started planning our wedding we were under contract with an entirely different photographer. After months of emails/phone calls not being returned we had enough. It was an absolute blessing that we were able to get out of our contract and land Matt as our wedding photographer. From the very first consultation Matt and Sarah made us feel so comfortable about how our BIG day was going to work. Every email we sent asking questions it was returned so quickly. With all the other stress that goes along with planning a wedding we never had to worry about a thing with our photographer thanks to Matt. The day went off without a hitch. Our guests loved how Matt worked and every last minute photo my wife/I threw at him he was able to accomodate with a friendly smile and wonderful results. The pictures came out amazing and it's been over 6 months since our wedding and we are still ordering prints from Matt because we just simply can't get enough. I highly recommend Matthew Yeaton Photography for any wedding! ~ Bobby

We loved having Matt Yeaton, along with his wife Sarah, as our wedding photographer! He has a very professional, yet totally laid-back attitude that made us feel so relaxed despite the stress and craziness of the day. You can really see the passion he has for photography, and it reflects in his work. We couldn’t be happier with how our pictures came out! Thank you, Matt and Sarah, for everything!

I want to first off thank you for everything you did for our wedding. From the very first conversation on, you have had the up most professionalism with every detail. It took us a long time to find the perfect photographer and we definitely found it in you. We were first drawn to Matthew Yeaton Photography by your talent and then by your willingness to work with what our vision of our wedding would be. And I have to say, we had the perfect wedding. When I was walking down the aisle, I was just trying to soak up the moment, so I would never forget it. I had no clue that my picture was being taken. I never even saw you; now that is true talent. Every guest at the wedding commented on how attentive my photographer was and they were all quite impressed with you. After the wedding was through I could not wait to see the pictures! And we were overjoyed with the quality and abundance of photos taken. You captured every moment beautifully. We really can’t say enough great things about the whole process. My wedding day was perfect and you were a part of that. Thank you from us and all of my family. If any of your future potential customers ever want a recommendation, they are welcome to call me. I will always tell anyone who will listen, to hire you, they won’t regret it. Thank you again for everything.  

Melissa & Chris

Hiring Matthew Yeaton to be our wedding photographers was a smart decision! You were very responsive, professional, accommodating, and reasonably priced. Our pictures are beautiful and original and we didn’t even realize you were there most of the time. You did everything to put a nervous bride at ease. We couldn’t be happier with our pictures and would highly recommend you to any couple thinking of hiring you to photograph their special day. Thank you so much for the amazing job you did and keep up the great work!  

Amy & Josh

Our wedding was in New Hampshire, but we live in Arizona. We found Matthew Yeaton Photography on the internet and thought the web page and the pricing looked fantastic. After speaking with Matt on the phone and looking at sample wedding photos online, we knew that we were in good hands. Matt did an amazing job. We trusted his judgment on everything and the day went perfectly. Matt went above and beyond our expectations in every way. We now have beautiful wedding photos that will last us a life time. Thank you for making our day beautiful!  

Carla & Jeff

I just wanted to let you know that you did and still do a wonderful job with Jenny’s wedding pictures. God has truly gifted you with creativity and a good “eye” for creating wedding albums, etc. We are looking forward to using you again someday. Thank you for all you’ve done.  

Kathy (mother of the bride)

Working with Matt for our wedding photography was such a great experience. He made us both feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the whole process, and he really captured the joy and excitement of that day in his pictures. People always comment on how great our pictures came out, and we couldn’t agree more! We really do appreciate all your work to make our pictures so great! Thanks again!

Jenny & Josh

From our first conversation with Matt, to the last moment of our wedding, Matt made it clear to us that our needs were his top priority in working with us. He helped us customize a photography package that we could both afford financially and enjoy for years to come. He was eager to incorporate our vision for our wedding with his unique photographic style and provided friendly and timely help every step along the way. Matthew Yeaton Photography provides affordable photography without sacrificing quality service and artistic vision.  

Angela & Dan

In photographing our wedding, Matthew Yeaton Photography surpassed our expectations. Though the ceremony was quite small, Matt was unnoticeable as he captured every important moment. Both of our families were impressed with the breadth and quality of pictures taken, and we appreciated the thoughtfulness, professionalism, and excellent value that Matthew Yeaton Photography provided. If we had to plan our wedding all over again, we would not hesitate to choose Matthew Yeaton Photography.

Steph & Steve

Matthew Yeaton Photography was the best decision we made for our wedding. From the very first time we met, we were fully confident that he would do an excellent job. On our wedding day he took so many beautiful and creative pictures. The quality and amount of pictures we received was an excellent portrayal of our wedding day! We would recommend Matt for any special occasion, he was very professional and catered to our individual needs and desires.

Becca & Shawn

Having Matt Yeaton was a very good decision my husband and I made for our wedding. He did an excellent job on the day of the wedding and the pictures look wonderful. In addition to the beautiful pictures, his pricing is very reasonable. He also went over the amount of pictures that he was supposed to take and gave them to us for no extra charge which was a very nice gift. We thoroughly enjoyed having Matt participate in our wedding to help make the day even more special. Thank you Matt!

Danielle & Justin

For anyone still looking for a photographer, look no further, Matt is the best out there. He is just a pleasure to work with. Originally, my husband and I planned on having a close friend do the pictures as a favor to us, but shortly after, things fell through. My mom heard about Matt through a friend at work and suggested him to us. As soon as I met with Matt, I knew he was the one I wanted to work with. He was so eager and excited about the opportunity to do our wedding as I was to work with him. He was very professional, but at the same time relaxed enough to allow us to relax. When the big day came, everything went smoothly. I would suggest Matt to anyone looking for a great photographer.
