Welcome!  We’re Matt and Teri Mead. Partners in business and in life because we believe we’re better together.

Welcome and thanks for visiting! As a portrait photographer in Erie, PA, I capture portraits that transport you to the moment the shutter was pushed. It’s my job to make you look good in camera naturally; meaning no fancy Photoshop tricks, filters, or embellishments.  At Matt Mead Photography, we believe in portrait photography that capture real people and life moments; not posed and perfectly curated for social media.  

Wikipedia defines a portrait as “a photograph of a person or group of people that captures the personality of the subject by using effective lighting, backdrops, and poses.” Whether it’s a couple, family, or high school senior, our portrait photography preserves moments in time for you to cherish for generations to come. Each session is tailored to YOU. Together we will sit down and help you choose a location that is meaningful to you and best reflects your personality. We provide a balance of natural color and classic black and white images. Because we believe in making you look good in camera, there is minimal processing to our images with no filters or fancy embellishments.
