Wedding Photographer in Philadelphia
When I walk into a reception, I’m always drawn to the table with wedding photos of the grandparents. Why? Because the photos are just as beautiful today as they were on the day they were taken. Somewhere along the way, we have lost sight of crafting photos that are timeless and started chasing trends.
My goal as a wedding photographer is to provide photos that showcase relationships, foster genuine connection, and provide a timeless, clean aesthetic that will endure generations. I use a fine art approach to create painterly images that utilize beautiful light and strong composition.
As a wedding photographer in Philadelphia, I serve the Northeast region and beyond. If you are looking for an east coast wedding photographer who is always ready for travel say hello while you are here!
Can’t wait to hear from you!
All the best,
Philadelphia Wedding Photographer | Matt Genders Photography
PHILADELPHIA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY TESTIMONIALS
Matt was incredible to work with throughout the wedding planning and on our wedding day. After seeing Matt’s work and then an initial phone call, I knew we were in good hands. Matt is extremely professional and personable. As we were making decisions and planning, he offered great advice and never pressured us. My husband and I first met Matt for an engagement session. We were both feeling unsure of what to do in front of the camera, but Matt eliminated any of that worry immediately. He was so helpful! His sense of humor and excitement for his work made us feel comfortable. Leading up to the wedding, Matt maintained great communication and set up a schedule for the day. On our wedding day, Matt brought the best energy. He made everyone feel relaxed for pictures. He also ensured that we got all of the portraits before the ceremony so we could enjoy cocktail hour. He made great suggestions when a rain storm came out of nowhere during pictures as well. He captured so many beautiful moments during the wedding. I cannot recommend Matt Genders enough. He and his second shooter, Stuart, were amazing. They made the day so stress-free and relaxed for us. They were so easy to work with, and their genuine enthusiasm and excitement made the day unforgettable. So many of my guests also raved about how kind Matt was, and how he just knew the moments to capture. Matt Genders is simply the best!

Even from the beginning stages of wedding planning, working with Matt was great! He was professional, engaging, helped us brainstorm when we asked, and helped us develop our own preference for photos. We loved working with him and getting to know him through the process! The photos from our engagement session and wedding were phenomenal. He took advantage of the beautiful scenery at the venue and he took shots that reflected our personalities. Even almost 3 months after our wedding, we are still receiving comments on our beautiful wedding photos. We would strongly recommend him for any professional photography needs!
WEDDING AT TERRAIN AT STYERS, GLEN MILLS
Terrain at Styers in Glen Mills is every Philadelphia wedding photographer's dream to shoot. These particular photos were from a branding shoot with BHLDN, but perfectly illustrate why I love shooting at Terrain. The plants, the boho vibe, the food, the light- all amazing reasons why you should plan your wedding at Terrain at Styers.
WEDDING AT CAIRNWOOD ESTATE, BRYN ATHYN
Cairnwood Estate is a large house once owned by the Pitcairn family. A combination of old-world charm and gilded-era decor makes this one of the most unique Philadelphia-area wedding venues. The grounds and the cathedral are just two reasons to love this venue.
WEDDING AT FAIRMOUNT HORTICULTURE CENTER, PHILADELPHIA
I love weddings at the Fairmount Horticulture Center. It is beautiful year round, and might have the best consistent light in all of the Philadelphia wedding venues. As a Philadelphia wedding photographer, this venue is definitely top of my list!
