Hi there! I am a San Diego based wedding photographer who specializes in weddings and editorial portraiture with a love for medium format cameras. Using a combination of photojournalism and fine art, I am able to capture imagery that is romantic, timeless and authentic. I was honored to be named one of the best East Coast Photographers by Mod Weddings in 2015, and a finalist for Belle Lumiere's Magazine "Emerging Film Photographer of the Year" 2015. As a recent transplant to the West Coast, I am thrilled to be working with some mazing new couples in Southern California
There is nothing more exquisite than love, and it is an absolute privilege that I get the opportunity to do what I do. I approach wedding photography with an artistic eye, focusing on the details, the authentic emotions and moments, but most of all, the genuine love between the couple. I seamlessly combine documentary and fine art style to provide you with beautiful images that stand the test of time. When I am not pursuing my love for photography, I am spending most of my time obsessing over my doggy child Zoe, reading comics, or enjoying a delicious glass of wine... or two.

REAL CLIENT REVIEWS:
"Hiring Matoli was the BEST choice I made in regards to my wedding. She made every single thing fun, exciting, and easy. From our very first email exchange, she made me feel absolutely at ease and as if I was talking to a long lost friend. Her enthusiasm and professionalism never wavered. And best of all, our photos are incredible! I actually hate having my photo taken, but Matoli made me feel very comfortable. The photos are so genuine and don't look "staged" because she is great with direction. My friends and family still cannot stop talking about how beautiful the photos came out (seriously.... they are crazy amazing). The emotion, joy, and happiness that we felt on our day is captured perfectly in our pictures. I could not have picked a better person to shoot our wedding and Matoli was the absolute best to work with. I miss her already!" -Heather
"I found Matoli through a mutual friend and I am so glad I did. Her absolutely sweet and calm personality made the process of working with her a dream. My husband and I decided to run off to Winchester and elope (it was a planned elopement). Though we wanted the ceremony to be just the two of us, we also wanted to have our day documented. It ended up being us, Matoli, the officiant and the officiant's random friend. It was a perfect day and was exactly what we wanted and the photos will be treasured forever." -Leanne
"Matoli was just perfect! A friend of mine recommended me to her and I am so glad that she did! I had worked with Matoli with my engagement session as well as the wedding. From the very beginning, she was always available, from our Skype sessions when we couldn't meet face to face all the way to the day I walked down the aisle! She has a great eye and can easily envision an idea to come up with the perfect shot. I would gladly recommend her to anyone. Her work is absolutely beautiful!"
