matt borchelt

Matt has been an event and portrait photographer in the Washington DC and Philadelphia areas for more than 13 years. He graduated from Towson University with a Bachelor of Science in Photography in 1998.

Matt grew up around photography and has always been drawn to making images. "My father started a photography business in 1980 with a studio and darkroom in the basement of our house. I would watch him work and by the time I was 9 or 10 I was tagging along on assignments."

After graduating from Towson, Matt started his own photography business. "I have always been drawn to wedding photography. I love weddings because each one is a unique's my job to create a pictorial narrative that communicates the wedding story for future generations. A good wedding photographer is part story teller, part visual artist, and a little part tecno-geek."

Matt is also an accomplished fine art photographer. Flowers, the human face and historic architecture are all subjects Matt has explored. He has exhibited his photographic and multi-media work in a variety of local venues and juried shows. Matt's work has been featured on Maryland Public Television and in Japan in Photo Technic Magazine.

Matt's hobbies include painting and mixing music. "I love to work with oil paint, the smell...the mix and smear it around a canvas is a wonderful experience...mixing music has a similar appeal for a different set of senses."

Matt has been happily married to his childhood sweetheart for 14 years and together they spend a lot of time chasing their four children (two boys and two girls) ages 9, 6, 3 and infant.
