Matrix Digital Arts & Photography | Pros t...

The professional and passionate team at Matrix Digital Arts & Photography is committed to capturing priceless candid moments for couples. I had a chance to talk with owner Michael Holeda for a quick Q&A to learn more about what makes Matrix special—check it out!

How did Matrix get started? Eric Aaron and I started Matrix Digital Arts in 2002 restoring damaged or aged prints to their original condition. Then, as our business grew we decided to make photography our primary service. Our first camera was a Minolta Dimage 7, which we still have on our shelf to remind us of our beginnings. I laugh when I think that the camera produced 5-megabyte images, which at that time was huge. Now, Matrix specializes in wedding, quinceañera, and portrait photography. Eric passed away after a lengthy illness in 2015, but his dream of seeing Matrix Digital Arts grow into a thriving business was realized.  Today, we have six photographers who have been with us for eight years.

Tell me about the services you offer and your wedding packages. Our primary focus is wedding, quinceañera, and high school senior photography. We don’t offer packages, which sets us apart from our competition. Instead, we build a custom package, or collection as we call it, specific to the client’s wishes and budget.

What inspires your work? The human condition! I’m a photojournalist, so I prefer capturing candid rather than posed shots so I can photograph the subjects just being themselves without being aware of the camera. That’s what makes it fun. Each one of our photographers has a niche, and for our weddings, we like to pair up photographers with completely different perspectives and styles to give our clients a nice variation.

What’s your favorite part about the job? I enjoy sitting down with the couple in our first consultation to review their plans and to get a sense of their excitement about that all-important day. But there is no substitute for the actual shoot, being constantly aware of everything going on around you and always ready to grab that one-of-a-kind candid shot.

What sets Matrix apart and makes it most unique? We don’t interfere with the event we are commissioned to shoot. Too many photographers go in and want to take control. We let the wedding coordinator do what he/she was paid to do and step back to grab the shots. We love hearing from our clients that they hardly noticed us, except for the group shots following the ceremony. Also, many photographers require 3 to 4 weeks or longer to provide a couple with their finished photos, but we promise images within a week of the wedding.
