Mateo & Co is more than just a team of badass luxury wedding & event photographers. Mateo & Co is a luxury brand, specializing predominantly in high-value, high-production, wedding & event photography. We are based in Dallas & New Orleans, covering weddings all over.

Capturing Your Love Story

Your wedding is one of the grandest and most unforgettable days of your life. We hold that sentiment close and make it our mission to narrate your wedding story with not just authenticity, but with elegance. With our on-site stylist ensuring our couples are flawless and Mateo’s extensive experience in capturing weddings since 2012, rest assured, we’ve got you covered! Our ultimate goal? To ensure both of you have the time of your lives. We’re all about banishing anything stuffy or dull from your photos – because who needs that? We’ll ensure your day is nothing short of amazing, while still ensuring you both look absolutely stunning.


Let’s kick off by addressing what doesn’t fly with us – those cheesy, contrived poses? Not our jam. As Mateo puts it, “Your photos often mirror your photographer’s natural style. If your photographer exudes coolness, has an eye for fashion, and appreciates the finer things, expect those vibes to shine through in your photos.” Just a little something to chew on.

Each of our couples brings their own flair and vision, and we’re all about delivering photos that are not just stylish, but also exude fun, timelessness, and that cool factor. We thrive on providing a mix of editorial sophistication as well as the easygoing, natural lifestyle vibes.

Authenticity Meets Elegance

By genuinely getting to know our couple’s style and personality, our team is able to capture them authentically, for who they both are, providing cherishable moments for a lifetime. Our clients consider us not only their storytellers, their friends, but an added resource to help them stay carefree on their wedding day. Luxury is all about the overall experience you have, and that is what you will have with us.

Mateo always says- “There’s two things in the wedding industry you cannot buy- Tenure & Class.” With the pleasure of capturing hundreds of weddings, we have mastered how to truly tell a couple’s story through the lens, make sure they look their absolute best, and showcase the design and look of that wedding in the most exquisite way possible.

We Highly Recommend a Wedding Planner

Although we are an invaluable resource on your wedding day, we certainly do not replace the value & need of a wedding planner. In fact, we highly encourage you to hire a wedding planner, or at a minimum a licensed coordinator for ‘event management.’

Destination weddings are our passion, and we’re experts at seamlessly blending into any location to ensure your love story is beautifully preserved.

So, if you’re ready to embark on this incredible journey with us, let’s make it happen! Whether it’s a tropical beach, a majestic mountaintop, or a charming European cityscape, we’re ready to turn your destination wedding into an unforgettable visual masterpiece.

My grandmother hailed from El Salvador, a remarkable woman whose love and strength profoundly influenced my life. To her, I was always her “Mateito” – her little Matthew/Mateo – and she had a knack for making me feel like the center of her universe. She instilled in me the belief that I could achieve anything I set my heart on. Though she departed on October 3, 2009, her spirit remains a guiding force, urging me to reach for even greater heights.

I am so thankful for the unwavering love and support of my Abuela, my family, and my incredible team of rockstars.

Choosing the name Mateo was a way to keep my grandmother’s memory alive and well by my side, while the “& co.” symbolizes the importance of our team. At Mateo & Co., each member is integral to our collective success. During weddings, we have a “Creative Coordinator/Stylist” alongside our associate photographer, ensuring every detail is meticulously attended to. They not only assist with bringing our creative vision to life but also manage our schedule and, most importantly, ensure our couples look absolutely stunning. They are our secret weapons. Our couples adore our team approach, as it really ensures the overall experience of the day is met.

Together, we are Mateo & Co. – more than just a group of talented professionals, but a tight-knit family dedicated to our craft and the happiness of those we serve.
