Capturing your love story against the epic landscapes of the high desert.

Local Moab Photographer

Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event filled with joy, love and precious memories that deserve to be cherished forever. My goal is for you to be present on your day to truly experience it while I capture everything!

If you want help and guidance from a local, then you've come to the right place.

Looking for a stress-free & epic experience for your special moments?

The epic landscapes and the magic of your love story are my muse!

I connect with adventurous couples who seek something different for their wedding day.

If you’re choosing to get married in the desert, then I think it’s safe to assume you’re not looking for a ‘traditional” wedding. I love that. In fact, many of my couples are looking for epic photos and to throw a dope-ass desert party for their friends and family. 

Not Traditional? Not a Problem!

  1. Feel connected to the desert??
  2. Want to celebrate your love in a unique and beautiful place??
  3. Are totally ok with a little dirt on your dress/shoes??

Let me guess, you...

Since you hold the desert near and dear to your heart, we will discuss your vision and pick a location/s that really speaks to you! My philosophy is that there’s just no reason to overcomplicate things. I want this process to be as simple and stress-free as possible for you. This is why I offer unlimited communication throughout the planning process.  And if you’re ever in Moab, let's grab a coffee or go on a hike to get to know each other!

it's a celebration of love, commitment, and the start of a beautiful journey in life together.

I believe that your wedding day is more than just an event

Moab is a place like no other, with its beautiful red rock formations, dramatic arches, and stunning vistas. This is a very special place. But I’m sure I don’t need to tell you that. There are UNLIMITED possibilities for beautiful places to shoot here.

  • Possesses an intimate familiarity with this desert
  • Understands the parks and their permit requirements
  • Is familiar with the crowds and best vantage points
  • Pays attention to the brutal Moab sun, and what it’s up to
  • Has a plan B in case the weather turns

Choosing a local photographer is always a plus, especially in the desert.. In order to capture the most awe-inspiring shots you’ll need someone who:

Did I mention I live here?

Matt's talent is unmatched in many ways. My husband and I recently hired Matt to photograph our wedding in Moab and he was wonderful at capturing us in our favorite red rock wonderland. Our sneak peek photos are really something special. He recommended an adventure shoot a few days prior to our wedding and it was a great option for us. It made our actual wedding day carefree, which is exactly what we said we wanted in our initial consult with him. He took time to understand our non-traditional vibe and made sure his vision matched ours. He's truly a professional in his field, but didn't hesitate to join in on our wedding day fun! Matt was a real treat and we look forward to having him photograph us throughout our lives!

"If I could give 10 stars, I would."

Matt was AMAZING! Our pictures exceeded our expectations and he captured our special day perfectly. He took us on an adventure shoot which was one of our favorite wedding activities. We went the day before our wedding so we were able to get to know him which made our wedding day even more comfortable. He was so easy and fun to work with!

Matt is a prime example of someone who has mastered his passions in life. He made our engagement shoot so easy. After a 14-hour flight from Hawaii to Moab, we rushed to get ready and met Matt as quickly as we could to capitalize on Sunset lighting. I’m huge on efficiency and he didn’t waste any time, we got to the site and before we knew it, we felt like models of a romantic Mad Max scene. We relaxed into being ourselves and knew he was there to coach us into looking our bests. The one thing no one tells you about being in front of the camera is what a mental game it is! Being on the side of a cliff with gusty winds is no joke but he made sure we were comfortable and coached us to lean into mother nature’s elements with grace...

Matt really helped ease my worries of the wind whipping my hair around and let us laugh into the moment. He found a way to move around us in such a way we hardly noticed we were in a photo shoot! He also kept US moving so nothing ever felt too posed or stale. If you are looking to capture your romance in an adventurous location, Matt Davidson is the perfect match. Not only was the shoot so easy, when we received the gallery it felt like our wildest dreams came true and I was able to order our save the dates based on the sneak peeks alone because he was that good at highlighting the best of the best (thanks for the efficiency Matt!!). He is one of those people that because he loves what he does, he will never charge what he’s truly worth.

So pay the price and plan to tip so he can chase his own travel dreams, we need more humans like Matt in the world and I’ll say it as loud as it needs to be said. I’m a wedding planner myself and experience, efficiency and easy going personality is super key when it comes to choosing a photographer. With zero hesitation, Matt was our choice. Thanks for capturing our Moab adventure!

My fiancé and I were visiting Moab for vacation and really wanted some engagement photos done. We searched and were connected to Matt. He was so helpful in identifying a location that he knew would work. He made us incredibly comfortable, as this was the first time either of us had gotten photos done. We had such a great time and absolutely love the shots he got. Matt’s photos capture us and the views perfectly. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!

"we had such a great time."

Matt was so wonderful to work with. From the beginning of the process, he was so caring and mindful of everything we wanted. He made the whole process easy and stress-free from the first initial reaction to the very end of our wedding day. We are that awkward couple who doesn’t like taking photos, but we had so much fun taking photos with Matt! He captured our awkwardness to our happiness, perfectly! We were completely ourselves and he helped bring that out on our big day! Now we have the most perfect memories captured forever!

"perfect memories captured forever."

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Matt for our wedding. He was so fun to work with and made all of us feel very comfortable and at ease— it definitely translated into the beautiful photographs that we received. We will treasure these moments truly for the rest of our lives. I cannot recommend Matt enough for any of your photography needs.
