I'm so glad you are here!
My name is Matea, and I was born and raised in Hays, Kansas. I attended Fort Hays State University, where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Communication Studies with an emphasis in General Communication. Currently I work in the Catholic Diocese of Salina as the Interim Communications Director. In this role I serve as the content manager for our social platforms and website. I am also the diocese videographer and photographer.
Ad maiorem Dei gloriam
I have a passion for creativity, connection, building relationships & capturing moments/emotions that can tell a story. I feel God has given me a passion & talent that I can use to share His creation & love with others. I strive to do everything for the greater glory of God.
MOMENTS DESERVE TO BE REMEMBERED AND FEELINGS DESERVE TO BE RELIVED
WHAT I LOVE
Capturing Authentic Moments! My style is heavily focused on real moments. I am all about capturing the good stuff, which means nothing will ever feel forced or awkward. This won't be an evening full of posing. I want to capture you. My hope is that the images I capture will be something you look back on and remember that you were really here and you really lived.

"All the photos were very natural and spontaneous looking. Matea was a fun person to have at the sessions. She was great at interacting with us, but still made us the center of attention."
"Matea you are so good at what you do, literally INSANE."
