My photos and the photo session with Matt Boyd Photography was far more than I could have ever asked for! After taking a break from pageants and jumping back in years later, I was not sure if I had the same passion for pageantry like I once did. While at my pageant headshot session with Matt Boyd, everything changed. The hair and makeup with Meredith Boyd was like a dream - an incredible dream of what I've always wanted and she created a melanin maven that rose, like the phoenix that rose from the ashes into a fierce, radiant caramel sister I was born to be! Matt walked me through each pose step by step and chose my wardrobe so we all agreed on what would make me feel my best and also stand out from my competition. Matt & Meredith are LEGIT, I am serious people - they know the in's and out's to headshots and I put all my trust in them and they exceeded my expectations! I not only won photogenic in my division, and the best part was the overall experience. Read this carefully - it is a life enriching experience, it has always been a bucket list item for me to shoot with them! They were able to help elevate me to the NEXT LEVEL of ME! I feel like the queen I was born to be and that resonates with me everyday and I love every minute of it! Thank you Matt Boyd Photography!

My love for the Boyd's goes far beyond what I can express in this review, they deserve a million stars for their compassion, skill, knowledge and dedication to their profession, and for me that is priceless! The kindness Matt & Meredith Boyd have shown my daughter is something I can never put into words other than to share with you all, they are truly the best of the best!!! My daughter has papillary thyroid carcinoma, and has lost all of her hair but not her will to fight and be a champion every day, hour and minute against cancer. One of her bucketlist dreams was to have a Matt Boyd headshot for her pageant competition. The Boyd's are the sweetest couple you will ever meet and helped my daughter to look and feel like the real champion she is! Meredith took such good care with her to find the perfect "crown" (wig) for the shoot and even colored and cut it to perfection. Oh and her makeup is so stunning, it's beyond what I expected, so amazing! I didn't think it was possible to find the right lashes for her and she found the perfect ones. Matt has the best personality and can make anyone feel like they have known him for years. He makes the process so very easy and FUN! All the laughter was the best part, to hear the joy this experience has brought to her life is something we will never forget. Matt walked my daughter through every step of the process helping her feel confident and had a positive radiance all day, she just glowed from the inside out! It was the best day ever in thier beautiful studio. Matt made her feel like a supermodel from start to finish and the whole experience was priceless. Oh and little Rocky too was so adorable, we are glad to have met him too! We will enjoy these images forever. Thank you to Matt & Meredith for making dreams come true and being so incredibly wonderful in every way possible, we will be back - much love to you all!

My experience with Matt exceeded all of my expectations!!! And trust me they were very high. He was the most PROFESSIONAL photographer I have EVER worked with. (And I’ve worked with many). He made me feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera which is THE most important thing when picking a photographer. My headshots are the most beautiful pictures I’ve ever had taken and I am SO happy and excited to use them while running for Miss North Carolina USA. I can’t believe how amazing my entire experience was. Matt and Meredith are some of the most wonderful people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. They alone have made my first pageant experience one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. I can’t recommend Matt Boyd enough. I’ll be getting all my headshots done by him from now on. Words can’t express how thankful and grateful I am that I decided to get my makeup and headshots done with Meredith and Matt. Don’t make the mistake of choosing someone else to do your headshots!!!

I had the absolute best experience getting my headshots done for Miss Texas USA with Matt Boyd Photography. From the moment I walked into the studio, I felt like a queen. I could not be happier with how my headshots turned out. Now I am going into Miss Texas USA confident that my headshots are next level. Not only are Matt and Meredith the best in their field, but also the most kind hearted people. They care about their clients and it is evident in the quality of their work. THANK YOU MATT BOYD PHOTOGRAPHY!!

1000% 10's across the board for the Boyd's!!! I can never put into words the kindness and expertise both Matt and Meredith have shown my daughter and I over the years while in pageantry. They are worth every single penny! I know photographers and makeup artists that charge double what they do and still don't get the same experience as we do with the Boyd's. We are clients for life and always recommend them to our friends. They also do senior sessions, professional headshots and family sessions w...

Since then, my youngest daughter has begged and begged to book a photoshoot and her Christmas wish will come true! Thank you Matt and Meredith for being so personable, knowledgeable and warm hearted and making it a magical experience for us. Our entire family is hooked on the Boyd's!

Exceptional in every way possible! From start to finish, Matt Boyd Photography exceeded our expectations! Worth every penny, the experience is priceless, will continue to use Matt and Meredith Boyd for years to come for our pageant headshots. They treated my daughter like Miss America, they both have such sincere hearts for what they do and it shows! They walked us through the process every step of the way and helped us with all the details. The hair and makeup by Meredith is gorgeous and age appropriate. I researched numerous pageant photographers and hands down, it was the best investment and I found them to be very affordable which always helps too! So easy to get to Atlanta, Georgia and we enjoyed touring the city and the shopping was wonderful. Made for a memorable girls trip. My daughter felt so confident and still cannot stop talking about how much fun she had! The experience truly uplifted her to another level and she also won overall photogenic in her pageant!!! We cannot wait to go back!

Matt is SUCH a wonderful photographer! The price tends to be higher- but for the work he does IT IS WORTH IT! I’ve been using my headshot for the past year and recently used it for Miss WV Teen USA. The compliments and recognition I received on it was unbelievable! I highly recommend going to Matt Boyd Photography before looking elsewhere. He will not disappoint!

> Like a ripple in a pond, sometimes an experience has a long-lasting effect on one’s life. Many never even know they were part of it. So I wanted to share it with you. From the time we pulled up to their home until we left, I was floating on air with sheer joy and gratefulness. Your warmth as a couple and individually made us so comfortable. After showing us the Miss America suite where we would stay, I could not contain her exuberance Meredith made her feel special and pretty as you shared and graciously demonstrated all the “how to’s” without making me feel intimidated. The suggestions, counsel, and just your wisdom you shared as you worked, it made me feel like I belonged. Despite the fact she hardly ever wears makeup or the fact that I did not grow up in the pageant world. Then to watch how you and Matt related as a couple…not only during the shoot, but even the little things like fetching the lip color for us, cleaning the brushes, and the beautiful writings up in our bedroom that he penned spoke volumes and then, of course, Rocky…sweet little Rocky. > I can honestly say even if nothing ever comes of this pageant thing, this experience of our paths crossing was worth it. This wasn’t just an appointment for a photoshoot it was one of those experiences that I got to experience and it is embedded in my mind. I didn’t just learn life skills, I had an experience, not one I expected, not one I am used to. this was more than just obtaining headshots...although they are worth it (in and of themselves) Matt’s talent speaks for itself!
