"Look no further!"

"We can not express how awesome Matt and Lori are.  Not only are they amazing at what they do but they are so great to work with.  Matt and Lori are both such a great duo. you can tell they love what they do and they want to make sure your special day is stress-free. 


A big big big plus is that they stay with you ALL day.  Whatever, wherever-- they are there.  They were able to capture my  Vietnamese tea ceremony at 7 am and stayed with us until 10 pm.  I was scared they wouldn't know the Vietnamese ceremony layout, but they did,  I didn't have to explain anything.   


All my pictures came out so beautiful.   Now my bridesmaids want to use them as their photographer/videographer for their upcoming weddings! "

"I just trusted them & their instincts."

"I found Lori and Matt on Instagram about two years ago. I was instantly drawn to their style. I knew what I wanted out of our wedding photos and I wanted them to look nothing like anyone else’s photos.


I was full of nerves and worries that something would go wrong ahead of our big day and Lori and Matt worked hard to put my mind at ease. We talked throughout the whole planning process and got to know each other. I think this really helped when it came to our big day. We planned out the shots we knew we had to get and other than that, I just trusted them and their instincts.


On our wedding day, Lori & Matt were incredibly professional from start to finish and managed to capture some of the raddest and most epic photos I’ve ever seen (I may be slightly biased). They were constantly looking for different backdrops and taking us on little adventures and we had so much fun. They make you feel incredibly comfortable in front of the camera and honestly, they’re both so rad. Lori is the posing queen and Matt is such an intuitive photographer.


They traveled with us to Joshua Tree after for some more photos and again, instantly comfortable and so much fun. They captured our love and our day perfectly and we will always be grateful for that, along with their friendship. These two are INCREDIBLY gifted! Give them the flexibility to be artists and do their thing and you will not be disappointed. I cannot recommend them enough."

"They were so fun & chill, it made us feel relaxed."

"To say that Lori & Matt were awesome is an understatement! My husband and I recently got married in January 2020 in San Francisco. We sorta eloped. Our guest count was small but intimate. Our ceremony was at SF City Hall & our small reception at the University of SF City Club. Lori & Matt got everything single angle and perfect shots at both locations.


My husband and I are not “picture people” but they were so fun and chill to be around it made us feel relaxed. All my guests still talk about how “cool,” they were, and how good they were at getting their job done. They were so sweet, I still remember them telling me how beautiful I looked at they took shots of me in my feed before the ceremony and it helped with my nerves.


From the beginning of me contacting them, they were so quick to respond and always checking in with me until the day of the wedding. Pictures are so important, they are long-lasting memories for our most special days and I’m very happy I was able to find Lori & Matt to be part of one of the best days of my life. If you’re looking for professionals, artistic, talented, and awesome down to earth people then your best bet is hiring Pretty Branch Photo & Video."

"More than we could have asked for."

"My now husband and I loved working with Matt + Lori for our wedding photo and video. They are such a great team and balance each other so well. You can really feel that they care and want to deliver an amazing experience and beautiful product (they succeeded at both without a doubt).

On our wedding day, it rained all morning so I was worried our outdoor garden wedding would be ruined. Lori + Matt went above and beyond to reassure me that I didn't have to worry. I'm a realist and not a fan of blind optimism, so I was shocked and incredibly grateful when instead of saying the usual "it'll be fine," comments, they offered me a real solution of the ability to come back to the venue another day to re-shoot our sweetheart photo session if the rain didn't let up. Knowing we had this back-up plan really put me at ease because I knew that whatever happened for the rest of the day, we'd have the opportunity to come back and capture those moments. Fortunately, the rain let up just in time :)

We've gotten our sneak peek photos and have shared a handful on social media, and so many people have sent me messages letting me know how much they love the photos! We couldn't be happier."

"Our video blew me away."

Photography and videography are such an important part of the wedding process, but the price can add up so fast. Let me just say this: Lori and Matt are worth every penny. Not only is their photo and video quality pristine, seamless, and gorgeous, but they are a blast to hang out with!


These two are comfortable and in love with what they do, and they’ll make you feel the same way. For those of you on the fence about the video part of the package—do it! The pictures are lovely and I am so happy with them, but the video blew me away. And it was so nice getting to sit with my husband and watch our day all the way through. We both felt the same way we did that day while we watched it: ecstatic, giddy, in love.


And you’d be hard-pressed to find another photographer team that will stay with you at your wedding until the very end! Our reception descended into quite the party, so we’re so glad that Lori and Matt were able to capture every second, not just the posed moments. Thank you, Pretty Branch Photo for doing our big day justice! We are eternally grateful!
