Matt and his crew are simply amazing! They are so friendly and make you feel so comfortable, while also ensuring you are staying on schedule. My husband I worked with Matt when we were in the wedding party for our friend a couple years before our wedding and we instantly knew he was our guy once our time came. He makes you feel like you’ve known him for years and is there to support and answer every little question along the way. We never had to pay attention to the clock as Matt ensured we were staying on track with timing, and directed our large group from the moment he arrived. Our friends and family all got along great with him and he truly added to the fun of the day. The pictures he delivered caught every detail and then some and we could not be more pleased with his work. He was able to direct us in a way that he knew would capture the best shots, from poses to lighting to breathtaking backdrops. We have never met someone more talented and knowledgeable about photography than Matt and his team. They were able to work well in conjunction with our videographer and truly complimented one another to deliver the best product. We highly recommend Matt Ramos Photography to anyone who wishes to forever re-live their wedding day through amazing pictures!

Since our wedding, our family and friends have been talking about how great Matt is, what an awesome day it was, and how the pictures are going to be amazing. I cannot thank Matt enough for all of his help and quick answers when planning the details of the wedding. He made me feel calmer each time we met or talked. There are no words to explain how thankful I am for his flexibility, vision, and knowledge on our wedding day. With all the locations we had, various modes of transportation, and snags with dresses, he kept us on time and let us do the things we really hoped there’d be time for. My dad keeps talking about how impressed he was with Matt and he loved that Matt and his team arrived early! Kyle and I felt like we had known Matt for much longer than we have and are incredibly thankful that he was available to shoot our day. And our guests were right- the pictures are unbelievable! From the scenery, to the details, to the emotions of the day and all the special parts of the ceremony and reception, Matt caught it all and did so beautifully!
Thank you, Matt, for dealing with all of our personalities, being in multiple places at once, and working with such efficiency. We had the absolute most perfect day and we owe a lot of that to you!

Matt is an incredible photographer! He knows how to make everyone feel comfortable and get the best shots. Matt’s personality and sense of humor make you feel like you have known him for years. He always gets back to you immediately and is there to help and answer any questions. Him and his assistants capture every little detail of the wedding. His work is absolutely stunning!

Where do I even begin?! Anyone from the Capital Region knows Matt is the BEST photographer around and we booked him first so everything else went around him. He took the time to meet with us on multiple occasions and made is feel so important! He arrived early on the wedding day and was with us for 11 hours and was upbeat and fun the entire day. He may have been our biggest cheerleader all day! I have only seen a few teasers so far but all I can say is “WOW!!!” Worth every damn penny and anyone who doesn’t have him as their photographer is missing out.

Matt Ramos is hands down the best decision we made in planning our wedding. The quality of Matt’s work speaks for itself but what most impressed us was Matt’s character. What sets Matt apart from others in his field is his ability to interact with the Bride, Groom and bridal party like he has been a lifelong friend. He puts everyone at ease and captures everyone at their very best.
He is able to work with every budget and build a custom package that fits your needs. Matt’s only concern is to produce the best images of your special day and never sells you anything. Matt was even willing to drive out of his way to pick up our flowers with less than 24 hours notice!
The focus of your wedding should be the bride and groom (in that order). Matt does a great job achieving this and really enhances your wedding day. We found the times he pulled us out of the reception hall to shoot with Matt and his amazing assistant “Jamaica” are some of our favorite memories from that day.
Planning your wedding is such an expensive, time consuming and stressful process and all the build up leads to a day that disappears in the blink of an eye. You only get one chance to capture those special moments and I couldn’t imagine putting that trust in anyone but Matt Ramos. Incredible photographer, even better human being.

5 Stars are not nearly enough!
Matt and his team are phenomenal. They weren’t on time, they were EARLY!! Which allowed them time to meet the bridal party, my parents, and make everyone feel comfortable before we started easing into everything. He amazed me every step of the way with his creativity, talent, and passion for what he does.
We also had Al Woodard (equally as amazing) for video and it was obvious they have worked together before – everything was seamless! Everyone thought Al and Matt were part of the same team, they had no idea we hired them separately.
Words can’t describe how happy we are we chose Matt, if we had to do this all over again, we would choose him every time.
Thank you, Matt!

Matt was such an awesome photographer to work with. He always made my husband and I feel important and comfortable. Matt had a very large bridal party to work with the day of the wedding, which can be very challenging. However, he was up for the challenge and was able to take every single picture we wanted. We still don’t know how he did it! Different people from my party came up to me saying how much they loved him as a photographer because he knew exactly what he wanted. Not to mention his assistants were just as fantastic! I would recommend Matt without any hesitation, as he is quick to respond to emails, very professional, flexible to work with, and has a great sense of humor which is needed to make your day even more special and enjoyable. Thank you Matt from the bottom of our hearts!

Matt Ramos and his team are truly amazing! Very professional. Matt is a true artist who knows his stuff. He directed us through our entire wedding. Helped us every step of the way. He created our time line and kept us on schedule. My friends and family were very impressed with him and his photos. His photos were outstanding!!! I wanted a photographer who would capture every detail of our wedding and Matt truly did. If you are having a wedding in Albany/Saratoga area Matt Ramos is your guy. 🙂

Matt is so creative especially in places he has never been to before which was part one of our engagement shoot and our getting ready location on the wedding day. He is professional, funny, serious, creative, flexible, and he can really bring out the best in you if the weather is not cooperating. Our engagement shoot had two parts- the first one was cut short with a severe thunderstorm- but amazing pictures were taken. Part two of the engagement photos was intense severe heat, Matt nailed it again- amazing. His well rounded secretiveness shines through when you see him action. Your day is all about YOU and he gets everyone into it to get the amazing end product- unbelievable photos. I would recommend Matt because of his dedication and love of photography and to getting it right for his clients.

Your wedding photographer is such an important part of your wedding planning and i did not think it would be an easy decision to make — until we met Matt! From the very first meeting, my husband and I knew we had to work with him and would not regret it. His approach to his work is remarkable — he makes you feel comfortable and you have so much fun in the process. His pictures are incredible — exceeded my expectations — and they were high having seen his previous work! He is more than just your photographer for the day — he takes great care in planning your day, the timeline and offering expert advice. We love all our photos and cannot wait to work with Matt again in the future. He has a gift and is so talented — so glad we trusted him to capture our day. We enjoyed every minute of working with him and have beautiful photos to remember the day with — all thanks to Matt and team! Hire him — you will not regret it!

For my beautiful bride and I, photography was one of the most important aspects of our wedding. So much so, that we were willing to move our day to able to hire Matt as our photographer. Matt and one of his associates (Jessica) shot our wedding on May 5th. They were a great team. Matt is a great guy and is very humble. He doesn’t brag about how wonderful he is, his work is incredible and speaks for itself! If you’re thinking about hiring Matt, stop reading this review and call to book your date. Thank you Matt and Jessica for capturing our special day! You promised, you delivered and we couldn’t have been happier!

‘Blog stalker’ is what a lot of brides turn into when they get engaged. This is when you constantly look at, admire, and frankly, ‘stalk’ a photographers blog on their website. The one blog I couldn’t stay off was Matt Ramos’s blog. His photography is absolutely breathtaking. All we wanted was for him to be our photographer. In fact, as soon as we picked a wedding date, we went right to Matt so see if he had our day available…which (thankfully) he did, as we booked him nearly 2 years in advance. That’s how good he is!
Even though our package did not include engagement photos, we chose to do them anyway; and we were so happy we did. It gave us a chance to see how Matt works, let us start to feel comfortable in front of the camera, and know what to expect on our wedding day. Matt was so fun, relaxed, and professional. It was like working with an old friend. We absolutely LOVED the photos and couldn’t wait for the wedding day. When it finally came, our wedding photos were flawless. He has such sophisticated and refined taste, and knows exactly what will and won’t work. He takes risks in his photos and they pay off. He is definitely on the ‘cutting edge’ with his art.
We cannot say enough nice things about Matt. As a professional, he was extremely responsive to all our calls, and emails; and his flexibility / willingness to work within our budget was fantastic. He really was so wonderful to work with, and we cannot wait to use him again when we expand our family some day. Thanks, Matt!!

We got married on 8/14/15 at Old Daley Inn on Crooked Lake and we are so happy that Matt was our photographer. We were big fans of his work which we had viewed online even before we had booked our initial meeting. Once we met with Matt the first time, we knew we had to have him as our photographer. Not only is his work amazing, but he is awesome. He definitely knows his stuff and his friendly, down to earth personality is awesome. We had the amazing opportunity to work with Matt for our engagement photos which came out beautiful. He made us feel so comfortable and he captured so many amazing shots.
For our wedding, Matt and his team did an amazing job. We have only seen one teaser from our wedding so far but if the rest of the photos are even half as amazing as the photo we saw, they will be fantastic (and knowing Matt, we are sure they will be). Matt worked so well with our large bridal party and families. It was great because we could trust him to get all of the photos that we wanted and many more that we would never have thought of. The photos he captured at night in the rain could make any couple hope for rain on their wedding day.
Matt brought two of his associate photographers with him and we could not have asked for a better team to work with. Jacqueline and Tyler were great. Jacqueline went above and beyond for me, doing jobs that weren’t even photography related. She put heel protectors on my shoes so they wouldn’t sink in the grass and carried the train of my dress so it wouldn’t get wet in the rain (while she got poured on). We appreciate everything that Matt, Jacqueline and Tyler did for us for our wedding and will be recommending them to everyone we know who is looking for a photographer. Thank you so much for everything!

We absolutely love our collection of photos and will cherish them fo the rest of our lives. Thank you for helping to make our day perfect & stress free!

To say that Matt came to our rescue is an understatement! Its was every bride’s worst nightmare, a few days before my wedding my photographer called to tell me that due to situations beyond their control they would not be able to shoot our wedding but in the same breath said I was able to find someone to take my spot. The first thought that went through my head was that I was getting someone who wasn’t that good given all of the good photographers had to be booked. My photographer assured me that Matt was the best around and that I was in good hands. I trusted her but was still a bit hesitant. 5 mins later my phone rang and it was Matt, the minute he started talking, I realized that everything was all going to be ok! Matt, knowing what I must have been feeling, was so professional and caring that all of my fears disappeared. The day of my wedding when I met him for the first time, I knew that it was by the grace of god that this man wasn’t booked the day of my wedding. Our pictures are AMAZING and knowing how Matt stepped up and came through for us and for our original photographer, show his true character, he is one of a kind and we are so lucky to have had the chance to work with him!
