Taryn & Daniel

Chicago, Illinois has a lot to offer - it’s a beautiful metropolitan city with lots of sights to see.
What it doesn’t have?
Palm trees. Beaches. South Seas Island Resort

It’s no mystery to us why Taryn & Daniel decided to leave Chicago and celebrate their love on the sandy shores of Captiva Island!

MSP Travels: Wilmington, DE

Juliana & Pete live in Wilmington, Delaware (the very first state!)

J&P don’t really consider themselves “wedding people”. They would have been perfectly happy with a courthouse elopement, sans the big white dress and wedding party. Fortunately for us, J&P also come from large Italian families, and those families wanted the chance to celebrate the couple in a grand way… so J&P sweetly agreed to a simple wedding…

Enter: 190 guests, 6 bridesmaids, 6 groomsmen, and a billion reasons to smile.

Choice in bridesmaids and groomsmen? Nailed it.
Wedding style, big white dress included? Nailed that, too.
Meaningful, religious ceremony? Boom.
Tons of fun taking photos for MSP? Yaaaas!

For a couple that never dreamed of their big wedding, they succeeded in celebrating a personal, authentic, and love-filled day!

Jennifer & Brent

We have the best clients, truly.

And we meet our couples all kinds of ways. Most are referred to us through our close-knit network of wedding partners or through exposure in publications and web-based searches. A few times a year, we're asked to photograph the wedding of a bride or groom that is already in our industry- and that is incredibly flattering.

Jennifer & Brent met while working together at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point in Bonita Springs. As a preferred vendor there, we met them while shooting another wedding. When it came time for their own special day, they knew who they wanted to ask to capture all the moments!

And boy, did we!

Jennifer’s father couldn’t walk her down the aisle due to health reasons, but that didn’t stop her from honoring him. Her brother escorted her to the beginning of the aisle, she walked the length of it by herself, and ended the walk with a big hug from her dad - sitting front and center for the ceremony! We loooooved her thoughtful approach!

MSP Travels: Marrakesh, Morocco

M A R R A K E S H

Steven Spielberg, Alfred Hitchcock, Oliver Stone, and Martin Scorsese have all set films to take place in the vibrant, culturally-rich city of Marrakesh, Morocco. There's a simple reason behind that: nowhere in the world lends itself quite so well to the camera's lens as this historic city. Brilliant colors, textures, and interesting architecture are everywhere. 

Enter: Kehrin Hassan of Jet Set Wed, international wedding planner & designer, and her fiancé Jason Teeters. Jason was an educator at the time (he's since become a lifestyle designer - check out JetSetState.com), and they asked us to join them on their trip to Morocco for their intimate elopement in the summer of 2015. 

Pack your bags for the first of this 2-part blog!

Matt Steeves Photography Marrakesh Wedding Photographer 1.jpg

After our arrival in Marrakesh, it was time to check-in to our Riad (a riad is a townhouse centered around a courtyard & garden). Morocco is famous for its riads - as well as its miles of twisting alleyways!

The Riad had several bedrooms centered around the pool and a rooftop garden with seating area - the view was so cool! Once we had established our home base, it was time to go out and see some of the city!

Marrakesh is known for its marketplace - it's huge and features tons of artisans selling pottery, spices, and handmade treasures like lanterns. It did NOT disappoint.
