This morning Lauren and I went out to catch the sunrise. Living here is always worth it when you get to be surrounded by such beauty. It's even more worth it when you get to fly a drone! Then afterwards we went and got doughnuts!
Winter Weddings!! How beautiful! Erin and Tony your day was great! Here is a little teaser.
In January, we had the opportunity to film Josh and Saydi's engagement video. These high school sweethearts have a terrific story, and we hope that you enjoy hearing about how it all began!
Chasing waterfalls is one of our favorite things to do and has become a big part of our story! This was from a trip Lauren and I took to Canyon Falls in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan this past fall.

At Matthew Hill Creative, we’re all about capturing those moments, both big and small, that add up to a lifetime of love and happiness. That’s why this month, as a present to those out there looking to commit to their significant other, we’re offering free proposal videos!
The video Matt caught on his iPhone of our proposal is one of our favorites to look back at. I knew Matt was going to propose the week he did, I just didn’t think it was happening the night he chose! At that time, we were consistently working opposite shifts so we had limited time to spend together each night. We had started the habit walking at the Dome right when he got off of work at 9PM. The night my ring was done, Matt set up his phone on a tripod on the ground in the parking lot of my apartment. Then he let me know he was there to pick me up and got back into his car to pretend like he hadn’t been out of it. I came jogging outside, excited to see him, and he got out of the car to give me a hug. Then he pulled the ring out of his pocket and proposed, right there in the snowing parking lot, in front of the headlights of his car.
I was so surprised because I was sure he was going to propose over the weekend. I had thought the ring was going to be done the next day so it wasn’t even a thought in my mind that he was going to propose that night. My response was, “WHAT!? NO!” and I curled up in a ball, laughing and crying. I was so shocked it was happening at that moment. Matt waited patiently for me to compose myself (most people commented on how long I left him on his knee… It wasn’t intentional!) and well… you know the rest. It’s all there.
That video is one we treasure. It wasn’t the most edited video we have. It was raw yet we love as much as our other videos. We’d like to help you future grooms out there, capture the moment you ask your person to be with you forever. We’re willing to work out a way for us to secretly record your proposal and the moments shortly after.
Contact us today! We have limited availability this month and will do our best to fit as many interested future grooms as we can into our schedule. This offer end January 1st and excludes Christmas Eve and Christmas Day proposals as we’ll be with our family.
Until Next Time,
Matt & Lauren
The release of Brian and Ceri's Engagement video! It was awesome to see them share their feelings with each other. This is exactly the kind of thing we love to film! Writing letters to each other is one of our favorite ways to add more of you to either your Wedding or Engagement!
We had a blast shooting Brian and Ceri’s engagement portraits this September! It was a beautiful, yet blustery day at Little Presque, just outside of Marquette, and the four of us had a lovely time wandering around in the woods. Brian and Ceri are Illinois natives who have been living in Marquette for a couple years now, and they are tying the knot in the summer of 2019 in Chicago. They love to laugh, drink chocolate milk, and stargaze together.
Our favorite thing about Brian and Ceri is how they aren’t afraid to show their genuine love for each other. You can see it in the way they look at each other, smile at each other, hold each other. They even took the time to write letters prior to the shoot and let me tell you, they were beautiful! You’ll get to hear parts of it in their engagement video that will be coming soon. Brian shared that he knew that he loved her just two days after meeting her.
We can wait to see what the next chapters of your love story have in store for you, Brian and Ceri!
Until Next Time,
Matt & Lauren
