Quixotic World Wedding, Deep Ellum, Dallas

Even the most traditional wedding is customized to fit the couple, but sometimes a wedding is out-of-the-box unique. For their wedding, Danielle and Jayson celebrated with a Day of the Dead theme at The Quixotic World in Deep Ellum. Eschewing even the traditional white dress, Danielle looked radiant in a dark, floral dress. Jayson wore an old-fashioned suit and cap accented by a homemade pin in place of a boutonniere. The couple surrounded by their closest friends and family were married by a friend who got ordained online.

After the ceremony, Danielle and Jayson kicked off the reception with their first dance. Then, everyone enjoyed a night of dancing, drinks, and food to celebrate the couple. The bride and groom did have fun with one wedding tradition: tossing the bouquet and garter. Once all the guests had their fill of cupcakes, signature cocktails, and dancing, everyone gathered to send off the couple with sparklers.

Matthew did an amazing job with our wedding. Our phones are wonderful these days and they are able to capture the small moments in our lives – but having a pro for something like a wedding is crucial. We were so thankful to be in the professional hands of Matthew on our big day. The shots that he captured were truly special – and he did so with such ease and calmness. We absolutely recommend his services for any occasion.

Matthew did a wonderful job capturing photos with my fiancé! They are so natural and beautiful. He has a great way of making you feel comfortable during the shoot — which comes through on the camera. He really captured some sweet unstaged & authentic moments. He has an amazing eye for composition and light. We will treasure our proposal and engagement photos for years to come.

Matthew T Rader is more than a professional photographer. He is an artist… Matthew, just like you would expect artists to do, creates. He will create the “mood” among all the variables such as the bride, the groom, the families, the friends, the “weird” relatives, the personalities, beautiful colors & decor, sacred structures, and so on so you can enjoy vivid pictures of the memorable experience and share it with others over a lifetime. This is why you want to go with Matthew T Rader.

Matthew Rader is not only professional, he is fun. His images have a unique perspective that add to his photography. Either with location or shoots with out of the box themes, like trash the dress, Matthew approaches each session as an adventure to discover his subjects unique personality.

I love Matthew’s style of photography, the way he uses natural lighting when possible to enhance his images. The thing that impresses me most, is how his composition in each photo tells a story of that moment of time. Very talented photographer.
