MEET THE SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA FILM 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.

THE ARTIST

Connecting with all my couples is a key element of my process. Building a relationship with you allows me to be able to capture your day authentically. This relationship allows me to create images that are timeless, truthful to your relationship, and fit to be preserved as heirlooms.

I was honored to be named one of the best photographers in the U.S. by Mod Weddings in 2015, and a finalist for Belle Lumiere’s Magazine “Emerging Film Photographer of the Year” 2015. I only 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. Contact me for more information on wedding collections.

From the first phone call, she was enthusiastic, comprehensive, and made us feel confident that she could make our vision a reality. We fell in love with her timeless style and knew it was exactly what we wanted for our big day.

Both on our engagement shoot and wedding day Matoli went above and beyond our expectations!! We would highly recommend Matoli, and hope to work with her in the future to capture other important memories. Thanks Matoli!!"

"Matoli shot my wedding last Sept (2016) in Virginia. She was a DREAM to work with and I must add that she was the ONLY vendor of mine that was consistent throughout the whole wedding planning process. What I mean by that was that from the first email/inquiry, to when we received our photos, she was very responsive, honest and kind (which from my experience with other vendors, was NOT the case). She has an eye for framing pictures and captured all of the most precious moments of our special day. Apart from her amazing skills, she was great to work with overall. She came early and stayed late."

KIND WORDS

"My entire experience working with Matoli was amazing. Not only is she a magnificent (very, very talented with film!!) photographer, she's friendly, easy to work with, and incredibly accommodating. I got married on July 4 knowing it was going to be difficult to find vendors who wanted to work on a holiday. To my delight, Matoli was more than willing to celebrate our big day with us. She spent the entire afternoon and evening capturing every moment, including the often forgotten details that you put so much effort into picking out. I will treasure my engagement and wedding pictures forever - and can honestly and with no hesitation say that Matoli is worth the investment."
