Meet Southern California Fine Art Wedding Photographer Matoli Keely
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. My journey into photography is different than most; my background and education is rooted in science, and I am lucky enough to have a passion for both. My analytical and scientific side has definitely influenced how I view photography, how I execute and how I am able to capture the images I create.
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. I take on a limited number of weddings a year, which allows me to focus on each couple individually and give their day my complete attention.
“Long after the vows are read, the cake cut, the food eaten & the dance floor is closed, the only thing that remains is the beginning of a beautiful marriage, and your photographs that allow you to relive your day over and over again.”
“YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!”
"During the wedding itself Matoli was focused and driven to make sure that we got the results we wanted. Even during times of stress Matoli remained calm, cool and collected, keeping us focused and the end results were amazing!"
“BEST DECISION WE MADE FOR OUR WEDDING”
"Not only is she an amazing photographer, but she has a great personality to match. The pictures of our engagement and wedding came out fabulous!"
“MATOLI IS JUST PERFECT”
"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."
“WE KNEW WE COULD TRUST HER”
"We now have engagement, wedding, and maternity photos from Matoli and they are so special to us! I feel like she has become a friend and part of our story and would recommend her to anyone."
SHE HAS BEEN A BIG PART OF MY JOURNEY AS A BRIDE…
"Matoli pays attention to detail as well as her clients individual needs and she makes everything happen smoothly. She stands out among all the other vendors I met because she strives to make a personal connection with her clients."
