Hi, I'm Matao.

Welcome friends! I am a dedicated and driven 25 year old photographer from Detroit, Michigan but currently in Boston, Massachusetts. I am a graduate from Claflin University, with my Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance and I currently work at Berklee College of Music as a Student Success Advisor.

I have been in Photography since December 2016 and have been stuck with it ever since! My passion and drive comes from my teenage years. I was the friend that took pictures of everything! I never wanted to forget those moments because they meant so much to me, and that is where YOU come in! You have moments that are so true and authentic that deserved to be captured in the most beautiful and mesmerizing way, and that is my job to do that for you. It is my job to make sure that MataoAricPhotography ensures that your memories will last forever and a day.

Enjoy and let's connect!!
