Meet the Griswolds

We're Matt and Paulette, a married photography team focused on documenting love and life in a way that's natural and true.

We met in 2004 when we worked for the same portrait studio. A wedding, two dogs, and many adventures later, we're still shooting, still learning, and still passionate about what we do. And pizza.

What we do

Our goal is to capture your story so you can appreciate this time in your life forever, and to do it in a way that makes your day easy so you can focus on enjoying the good stuff. We like to mix photojournalism with editorial storytelling- bringing out the light, color, and emotion that adds dimension to your day. We want you to look at your photos years from now and feel like you're there all over again, enjoying the details that you worked so hard on, the natural reactions, and even the things you didn't know about or plan.

Why we do it

We value art, adventure, and meaningful connections. We love this job because it involves all three. It's so great meeting new couples and having the opportunity to document and share in their once-in-a-lifetime event. It challenges us, it rewards us, and frankly, we have a blast doing it.

Why choose us?

A big advantage we have is that we work as a team. Having both of us at your wedding means your day is being covered by two professional photographers that work together constantly, instead of just one photographer, or a photographer and a "second shooter." 

We believe that when choosing a wedding photographer, the most important factor besides photographic style is that you like being around us and you trust us to capture your day. We've got some solid reviews and fancy badges,  but we still invite you to meet up for a coffee or an adult beverage so you can get to know us better!

We have been showing off your beautiful pictures to all of our friends and family! The more we look at them, the more we notice all of the little moments that you captured that make our hearts melt. Thank you for capturing our wedding in such a beautiful way.

Oh my God, I am overwhelmed at the sheer beauty of the pictures! Thank you for giving me what I WANTED the day to be like… I am crying tears of joy, right now, thank you for your artistic eye(s) and for the wonderful job you did.
— Maureen, mother-of-the-bride
Thank you both so much for being such an amazing part of our weekend. It was so lovely to have you with us throughout the day, and your calm, friendly attitudes made it so easy to relax and just revel in the festivities. We definitely picked the right couple to work with.
— Stephanie & Conrad
The pictures are AMAZING!!!! You guys did an absolutely unbelievable job. They are perfect and really capture the day… I can’t even find the right words to describe how great they are. I cried, laughed and everything in between. You guys rock.
— Kerri
We have gotten so many compliments and we couldn’t be happier with them and working with you and Matt! You guys made us feel comfortable and did an amazing job capturing the gorgeous scenery! Thanks for sending these, I can’t believe how quickly you work! It is so appreciated!
— Nikki & Matt
Paulette and Matt, we are forever grateful for you guys. Thank you so much for an amazing experience and a great day. When they say choosing your vendors really matters, we didn’t believe anyone until we hit the jackpot with Novella.
— Kim & Brad
These are ah-mazing!! We love them and the both of you!! Thank you so much for rolling with the shenanigans and getting weird with us. We really want to thank you for pulling us out of the reception during that gorgeous golden sunset — it truly was an amazing excuse for James and I to have a special moment to ourselves and bask in the natural beauty of Becket. We feel so blessed to have met you both and have you there with us on our special day.
— Doris & James
You guys were so great last night. Super impressed with how ‘invisible’ yet present you were. There were a few moments where I was like ‘oh, the photographers would want to get this’— and as soon as I started looking for you, I realized you were actually there the entire time. I’ll definitely be reaching out to you in the future. :) 
— Joe, Wedding Planner (Contagious Events)
We just wanted to extend a very sincere and heartfelt thank you. You guys were awesome and so much fun to work with, and quite literally every member of our wedding party and immediate family made unsolicited comments expressing the same sentiment. Having people who are good at what they do is great, but having people who are good AND blend so well into the dynamic of our close loved ones made it that much more special for us. Thank you both so much!
— Meesh & Pepe

Location & Travel

We're based in Western Massachusetts, but we've photographed weddings all over the US and abroad. We love new places, so we'd be thrilled to drive, fly, hike or sail to any destination you need. We're on the road a lot and we're serious about adventure, so no request is too outrageous.
