Whitney and Matsaya creates painterly images with an editorial edge, making sure subjects look and feel amazing. They are sought after for their ethereal style, eye for creativity, and their passion to empower relationships through soulful photography.
Our parents divorced when we were ages 10 and 4, and we yearned for nothing more than to have the people we love be together again. Family, whether by genetics or by association, remains important to us to this day. Photography is just one of many ways for us to live our lives purposefully - using our craft to stir the hearts of people and their loved ones for generations. It is our greatest hope that the stories and memories we tell will always remind others to cherish and hold their loved ones close.
For as long as I can remember, the people in my family have always loved the camera. I began venturing into photography as a middle schooler and was gifted my first camera by my father. In the beginning, my greatest goal was to create stunning and aesthetically pleasing portraits of people. However, after so many stunning images, I began to crave for deeper storytelling. My goal is to change lives by telling honest and impactful stories of people.
My mother influenced my love for photography. In my early childhood, she would often dress up my siblings and I and make us pose in front of her flower gardens. Similarly, I began having family members pose for me as I explored the camera and eventually transformed this hobby into a career. My favorite thing about being a wedding photographer is that seeing people commit to love is always inspiring and it never gets old.
The unforgettable memories we make together will leave powerful impressions for a lifetime.
