About MATT DEBACKERE PHOTOGRAPHY
Well first off thanks for visiting! I love being able to display my work, and whether you're here because you just LOVE the pictures or you're killing time because you don't feel like working, I'm glad you're here! So Ill keep it short and sweet... I've lived most of my life right here in Springfield, IL but have also lived in Los Angeles, various parts of IL, and done quite a bit of traveling across the country. I would love to do more international traveling though, so come on you European brides!
I recently just had a little girl in 2016 who is now already 1 year old and she is such a joy to watch grow up! I've been married to my wonderful wife Jennifer since 2013, and I'm lucky to have her! She is an assistant photographer for weddings when I need her and also does amazing album designs for our clients.
Some background: I went to school for film production having no idea that I would end up as a photographer. But shortly after working at one of those portrait studios in the mall (which I couldn't stand the lack of creativity) I decided it was time to give this photo thing a try! Turns out I have a knack for it, and I love working with my clients and giving them beautiful images!
Ill be honest, I spend alot of time on the photo thing but I'm also pretty involved with my church, some volunteer activities, and I absolutely love being outside. Whether its skiing, hiking, camping, or just hanging out with family in southern IL, I love to be out in the sun! I also enjoy gardening, landscaping, and taking care of our two fish tanks! So that's enough for now, if you want to know more then I guess you'll just have to come by and visit the studio!
