After working countless weddings together, the team at Matt Lowden Photography share an equal love for photography. Nothing is more exciting to them than capturing the magic that takes place during a marriage ceremony and the time leading up to the big day. They are big nerds who spend a lot of their spare time watching science and gaming videos on YouTube, following along with Good Mythical Morning, playing video games together, and watching far too many British panel shows. If you’re a nerdy couple, you will get along great! (Board game night, anyone?)
Matt welcomes the chance to photograph your engagement session along with your special big day. He covers one event per day and offers additional services such as using multiple locations, adding hours and a second photographer. Couples can receive their high-res photos in albums, on canvas, as digital files and prints (framing optional).
How they work
Their images are adventurous, airy, and timeless. They love making real connections with their couples and bringing out their personalities in our portraits. They aim to evoke feelings of genuine love and affection, rather than creating a pose that is currently popular on Pinterest. They capture emotions and memories as you experience it. You will look like you in the photographs and not like you were placed or pretending. Matt and Chelsey concentrate on truly seeing the quirk in the idiosyncrasies of your day and creating images that will live on through the years. The outdoors is their perfect backdrop, with natural light, mountains, trees and the open prairie being a large assistant in their portfolio.
Matt and Chelsey intend to deliver images that you fall in love with! Ultimately, their responsibility is to capture you and your person sharing life with one another and laughing so much that you get an imaginary 6-pack. It’s about the little moments: those small idiosyncrasies between you and your person that aren’t often seen by anyone but you, and having them in a photograph to share with your loved ones forever.
They are more than just your hired photographers: they are here to make friends, and Matt and Chelsey don’t want your special day to be the last time they see you. They would love to sit down with you over coffee or tea (or cocktails) and get to know you better, chat about your story, and how you envision your big life moments being captured on camera!

Oustanding, amazing, and memorable!
TLDR: Matt and Chelsey are 100% worth it. Not only are the pictures we received absolutely amazing, but Matt and Chelsey made us feel so incredibly comfortable in our own skin. Matt really captured the love between my husband and I, even when we were goofing off! Shoot Matt and Chelsey an email - you won't be disappointed!Sent on 31/03/2019
Matt and Chelsey were recommended to us and my husband and I were wary going into the meeting because we wanted someone to shoot our wedding that cared as much as we did. And we were not disappointed by Matt - he cared, had a great sense of humour, and was someone we could talk to. Being able to talk to him and his better half, Chelsey, helped us exponentially as we felt super awkward going into the engagement shoot (because honestly, one can only smile for so long!) But after a lovely shoot in the mountains my husband and I were laughing, goofing off, and got some absolutely gorgeous pictures that reflected both our personalities and the love we felt for each other. Matt's skill and charisma carried over to our wedding day - where Chelsey also helped wrangle our families, our wedding party, and ourselves so that we stayed wonderfully on schedule - and the pictures turned out fantastically! My husband and I spent hours looking at each and every picture, enjoying how the memories were captured and how they made us feel. We can't thank Matt and Chelsey enough! We also can't recommend them enough - so shoot them an email!

Thoughtful, professional and talented photographer!
Wow, I can't say enough great things about Matt and his wife Chelsey. We had our engagement shoot and wedding photography done by them and we are super satisfied. They are flexible and realistic, even moving our engagement shoot day around based on the weather so that we could have the perfect snowy day. Matt helped us prepare for our big day in September with lots of tips, tricks and moral support, even meeting us for drinks instead of sending an email to answer our many questions and address our concerns. We changed our minds a lot and they were able to accommodate us every step of the way. As for the wedding, I was AMAZED at the moments they captured and I literally had no idea they were there, which I both appreciated and admired. Matt and Chelsey are also just great all around people, very compassionate and fun to be around. Their personalities are so welcoming and open we feel like we've made two new friends. I would recommend Matt to anyone looking for beautiful and artistic photos of their wedding that will be keepsakes forever. And we got our photos back around 30 days after our wedding which was so great (now we can send fabulous Christmas cards!). Thank you!!Sent on 07/12/2018

Wedding Ceremony and Group Photos
Our time working with Matt was fantastic. Not only does he throw in a free Engagement shoot to get used to working with the couple, but his attitude and style take the awkwardness out of photos and allow for really fun and beautiful shots. Both the engagement photos and those from our wedding day are stunning and we're going to have a hard time finding places to hang them all.Sent on 17/10/2018

Matt and Chelsey were an absolute pleasure to work with! They are both super friendly, easy going people. Neither my husband nor I love being the center of attention or having our photos taken, but Matt and Chelsey totally put us at ease in front of the camera. They were really easy to communicate and coordinate with. They took the time to get to know us and we honestly had a great time hanging out with them. Matt takes incredible photos and we couldn't be happier with the product we received. We would HIGHLY recommend Matt to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.Sent on 07/09/2019

It was great having Matt shoot our wedding day. He was open to our ideas and went out of his way to get some great shots. He was also very accommodating with our engagement photos and suggested some great places to shoot out of the city.Sent on 15/07/2016

I am a creative at heart and a lover of deep conversation. Why talk about the weather when you can talk about what really drives you to get up in the morning? With a background in administration, communications, and art, I work with Matt through managing all of the type-A aspects of the business. More importantly, I keep tabs on you to ensure that everything you need is being done efficiently and authentically, especially on your wedding day.
I am a lover of bringing people together. After graduating from Alberta College of Art and Design with a bachelor’s degree in photography and design, I started inviting 100+ people on weekly hikes to combine my love for people with my other passion for photography. Along the way, I've met many incredible people including my wife, Chelsey. I will continually tell a lot of bad dad jokes to keep you laughing, all while leaping over fences and traipsing through puddles in order to get the perfect shot of you on your special day.
