I currently live in Southern California with my wonderful wife, Jordan, and our daughter Audrey. Photography is my life! I love soft light, dramatic portraits and moments that take your breath away. A wedding has all of those. Each wedding I’m filled with excitement and a dedication to our couples that we will be there for them to capture the magic of two people joining in marriage.
Weddings are so very personal to me and I am honored to work with every bride and groom. To document such a once in a lifetime event is truly magical and I strive to capture that in each and every photo!
I am fortunate to work with my very talented brother Taylor, as we capture life, one click at a time!
I also live in Southern California, with my beautiful fiancé Norma. Surfing along with photography are two of my greatest passions. There is nothing more gratifying than capturing timeless moments in this adventure we call life! I specialize in documenting the day through the eyes of the groom. From the moment he gets ready to the last dance, I will be there to capture it all!
Weddings and engagement sessions for me are the most exciting and rewarding, simply because these fleeting moments go by so fast for the bride and groom, and I make myself personally responsible to capture true love!
Working with my brother is amazing! It brings us closer together and gives us a unique advantage because we trust each other implicitly when shooting!
We booked Matthew Budnick Photography just weeks before our wedding because an unfortunate experience happened where we paid a different photographer in full then found out it was a scam. Matt was very flexible and was able to attend our San Diego wedding (from Orange County) and worked within our last minute details.
Budnick Photography stuck out to me because of all their great reviews, and once I started talking to Matt, I was convinced. My now husband and I were on a verytight budget and he was the only person to offer a great military discount of 50%. Yes, 50%. Every other person told me they didn't have one, or it was a very low discount on their insanely expensive packages.
Where to start other than Budnick Photography is the absolute best! Their professional yet fun approach to our engagement and wedding photos blew us away! My husband and I took our time finding our photographer because obviously we wanted the best! We looked at countless sites before coming across Budnick Photography and we were both very impressed
Couldn't have been any better. As a guy this can be awkward but Matt and his team kept us relaxed and laughing the entire process. They did both engagement and wedding pictures and my wife and I couldn't be happier. To top off their awesomeness they totally hooked us up in appreciation of me being in the military. If you are in need of pictures these guys are a must.
Great pictures!! Matt made the atmosphere very fun, comfortable, easy going and he was easy to work with. Happy with the results!!
Budnick photography provides so much more than just a day of wedding photography. Matt and his brother Taylor came to our hotel at 10am and stayed with us all day! Their great personality and humor lightened up the room and helped ease any nerves from arising. (And they bought us pizza, which was fantastic!) When I first met Matt, I was immediately able to tell how professional Budnick photography was.
