I love creating. The concept of making something from nothing is inspiring whether it be with my camera, computer, or even guitar. Finding beauty in life, archiving precious days, or developing something for someone is an honor. I take what I do seriously, and I have a blast doing it.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

MY FAVORITE PART OF A WEDDING IS…

MY FAVORITE LENS/PIECE OF GEAR IS… [& why]

Bride Prep - the calm before the storm. This is when I get to know everyone that I’ll be interacting with throughout the day and create beautiful candid photos. 

My Canon EOS R6 camera body. It's taken my photography to such new heights. It's beyond reliable, and allows me to do EXACTLY what I envision without hesitation. 

MY TOP 5 MOST PLAYED ARTISTS OF 2021 WERE…

Four Years Strong, Bilmuri, Bad Suns, Oliver Tree, Hippo Campus

WHEN I'M NOT CAPTURING A WEDDING I'M...

Hanging with my son, Henry, or teaching at Wilkes University. 

WHEN I'M NOT ON KNOTJUSTANYDAY.COM, I’M ON…

Trailers.Apple.com. I’ll never grow tired of movie trailers. 

I never leave the house without...

My fingerless gloves in the winter and my prescription wayfarer shades.

I went to Wilkes University and studied integrative media, which was a mix of design, photo, video, etc. I worked as a designer before meeting Steve through a mutual friend, and the rest is history! I’ve been shooting weddings and events since 2015. Currently, I work as a multimedia artist during the week, and shoot weddings on the weekends!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

MY FAVORITE PART OF A WEDDING IS…

MY FAVORITE LENS/PIECE OF GEAR IS… [& why]

The part between the ceremony and the reception. It may be a break in the day for your guests, but we are running all over the place! This part of the day can be pretty challenging, but we get to be super creative with the couple and wedding party.

My 70-200mm Lens - I feel like I can be pretty versatile with this lens. You can really create layers of depth with it. It’s great for portraits, close ups, and making dreamy backgrounds. However, with its range, I can also be very creative from a distance, capturing a candid image without ruining the moment.

MY TOP 5 MOST PLAYED ARTISTS OF 2021 WERE…

Khruangbin, klangkarussell, Rema, Koffee, Bob Moses

WHEN I'M NOT CAPTURING A WEDDING I'M...

Working as a multimedia designer at Benco Dental! But when I’m not working, I enjoy maintaining a few fish tanks, biking, and any sort of arts and crafts!

WHEN I'M NOT ON KNOTJUSTANYDAY.COM, I’M ON…

YouTube constantly. I really love watching any sort of educational videos, software tutorials, cooking demos, pet and plant care channels, you name it. If “How to” is in the title, I’ll probably click it!

I never leave the house without...

Running back to make sure I locked the door.

I went to school in York, PA and majored in Mass Communications. I spent my time focusing on video production and started my own company several months after graduating. I joined KJAD at the start of the 2018 season and now lead the video department. I love joking around with the KJAD crew and working with our incredible clients. 

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

MY FAVORITE PART OF A WEDDING IS…

MY FAVORITE LENS/PIECE OF GEAR IS… [& why]

Is the formals section of the day with just the bride and groom. As the lead videographer and video editor, this part of the day is always the most crucial part to get dynamic, stunning footage of the couple.

Is my trusty Sony A7siii with my Canon 24-70mm f2.8 L series lens. These things are true workhorses that make for the perfect combo. And for any gear nerds out there, who doesn’t love 4k@120fps, 4:2:2, 10 bit internal recording, amirite?

MY TOP 5 MOST PLAYED ARTISTS OF 2021 WERE…

Enter Shikari, Bring Me The Horizon, Bilmuri, The 1975, and Tiny Moving Parts. Oh, and Enter Shikari. Did I mention Enter Shikari?

WHEN I'M NOT CAPTURING A WEDDING I'M...

Either shooting commercial work for my own company, playing guitar, or playing video games. (Add me on League of Legends, my summoner name is Schpoopel.)

WHEN I'M NOT ON KNOTJUSTANYDAY.COM, I’M ON…

On Youtube or Twitter. You’ll never find me on TikTok, sorry Connor!

I never leave the house without...

Phone, wallet, keys.
Pants...?

I have an extensive background in business and sales with an undying passion for creativity and writing, so when I joined KJAD in 2020 I was happy to bring my experience and passions together. I’m a factory for the most random of facts and knowledge, and can talk to anyone about pretty much anything.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

MY FAVORITE PART OF A WEDDING IS…

MY FAVORITE LENS/PIECE OF GEAR IS… [& why]

The First Look. Since I’m not in the field with the rest of the crew, I don’t experience weddings “in the moment.” Instead, I rely on what they captured to walk me through what each day was like, and nothing quite translates the love and emotion each wedding brings than First Look photos and videos. It’s such an intimate and personal moment that gets to live on forever, and as someone who is admittedly very sentimental, I can’t imagine anything cooler than that.

The iPad Pro!! If you’re thinking of getting one, do it! 

MY TOP 5 MOST PLAYED ARTISTS OF 2021 WERE…

Hippo Campus, Frank Turner, Peach Pit, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Anberlin (throwback)

WHEN I'M NOT CAPTURING A WEDDING I'M...

Well, technically I’m not out there capturing weddings, but when I’m not at the studio I’m...working with the Dunmore Candy Kitchen, developing Umbrella Bloc with Steve and Stephen, playing board games, and rewatching The Office, Schitt’s Creek, or Scrubs.

WHEN I'M NOT ON KNOTJUSTANYDAY.COM, I’M ON…

TikTok or I’m reading. I have a ton of books I’m excited to read in 2022. So far I highly recommend “On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous”.

I never leave the house without...

My Airpods and an extra spiral hair tie.

HEY! I'm Nick. I am a photographer, graphic designer, and nature lover! I am extremely passionate about every photoshoot and project I get to work on. Working with KJAD is an awesome experience that allows me to truly do what I love, and meet a bunch of awesome people while doing it!

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

MY FAVORITE PART OF A WEDDING IS…

MY FAVORITE LENS/PIECE OF GEAR IS… [& why]

ALWAYS the first dance. The calmness and beauty of the moment really allows me to just sit back for a second and truly appreciate the wedding day in its entirety.

My 24/70mm lens. It allows me to either get up close and capture emotion when needed, or to capture the entire room with a wide shot.

MY TOP 5 MOST PLAYED ARTISTS OF 2021 WERE…

blackbear, Dominic Fike, The Lumineers, Bad Suns, Neck Deep

WHEN I'M NOT CAPTURING A WEDDING I'M...

Usually out walking in nature, getting a coffee, or relaxing watching some TikToks.. I'm addicted! Even when not at a wedding, I’m most likely still photographing something somewhere. It’s an amazing feeling when “work” is something I’d still be doing on any normal day!

WHEN I'M NOT ON KNOTJUSTANYDAY.COM, I’M ON…

YouTube watching some type of vlog or a recap of the best "Vines" that were produced! I also find myself watching a ridiculous amount of Impractical Jokers clips while crying of laughter, which is pretty typical for me.

I never leave the house without...

A positive outlook for the day! I like to start everyday with a clear mindset, ready for anything. OH WAIT! I take my wallet too, I usually need that... probably to buy a coffee and some snacks

I have been a photographer & photo editor for 10+ years now. Since graduating from Kutztown University with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts, I’ve worked for multiple studios, and gained many editing clients. I now live in the beautiful state of Maine with my little family, and still edit remotely for multiple photographers from back home in Pennsylvania. I am also the Marketing Manager for a large RV & Marine dealership here in Maine. Hiking, camping & anything outdoors is how I thrive.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

MY FAVORITE PART OF A WEDDING IS…

MY FAVORITE LENS/PIECE OF GEAR IS… [& why]

The food, for sure. Especially the desert bars. I also love the small decorative details. So much work goes into that, and I always appreciate the aesthetic they give a wedding.

My fixed 28mm. I am a landscape photographer at heart, and this lens is perfect to have with me on all camping/backpacking trips due to its small, lightweight size and wide focal length.

MY TOP 5 MOST PLAYED ARTISTS OF 2021 WERE…

David Bowie, Queen, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Khruangbin, Foo Fighters

WHEN I'M NOT CAPTURING A WEDDING I'M...

Definitely doing something outdoors. It could be hiking, kayaking, fishing, mountain biking or just laying in the grass taking in fresh air. I just love being outside.

WHEN I'M NOT ON KNOTJUSTANYDAY.COM, I’M ON…

A Nalgene full of water. Hydration is so important for feeling good. It took a long time to learn that, so now I always have water on me.

I picked up my first camera at 9 years old and haven’t put it down since. After going to Marywood and majoring in Photography, I immediately immersed myself in the photo/entertainment industry, started shooting professionally in 2004, and joined the KJAD crew in the beginning of 2020.

A LITTLE ABOUT ME:

MY FAVORITE PART OF A WEDDING IS…

MY FAVORITE LENS/PIECE OF GEAR IS… [& why]

Hands down my favorite part of a wedding is the first time the Bride and Groom see each other (the “First Look” especially). It’s one of the most pure and beautiful moments of the day.

Definitely the Canon 135mm f2.0. Why? I'm a sucker for tight portraits and the compression and depth of field on this lens perfectly fits my style. 

MY TOP 5 MOST PLAYED ARTISTS OF 2021 WERE…

DEFTONES, The Plot In You, Sleep Token, Northlane, Dropout Kings

WHEN I'M NOT CAPTURING A WEDDING I'M...

pending quality with my fur kid, Ansel, the mischievous 4 year old, 80lb Red Doberman puppy.

My name is Matt and out of all of the things I enjoy doing in life, photography will always be my "first love". I've been a part of the KJAD crew for a few years now and love every minute of it! By day, I am an environmental educator at Kettle Creek Environmental Education Center in Monroe County where I take photos and record/edit videos for the center, in addition to teaching all things nature in schools and to the public. I have a beautiful wife, Rita, and three incredible, loving and multi-talented, children named Mia, Luca, and Cora and apparently I am the only one in my family who's name does not end with an "a".

I went to Algonquin College in Ontario, Canada for Photography Techniques before jumping directly into full-time freelancing. Working in a variety of genres such as portrait photography, real estate media, and eventually music videos, I realized my next step was into the realm of video production. While freelancing, I went back to school, earning a B.Sc. in Digital Cinematography from Full Sail University before getting back to work on short films, documentaries, and other media projects.

My favorite part of a wedding is the couple's photo session after the ceremony. I think it is one of the most creative parts of the day and I always love the way it looks on camera. I also love watching the new married couple interact with each other during these moments.

My 70-200mm lens is my favorite because it has excellent compression and makes my subjects stand out from their background. It always depicts an amazing image.
