Based in Houston Texas, Matt Garza has been shooting, editing and sharing the world around him for the past several years. Not content with one form of media, Matt has extended his passion for photography and blogging, into video production and editing.
After shooting as a hobbyist for a number of years, Matt started Solid State Photography in the summer of 2010. “One thing I noticed in the weddings and events I would attend is that there was this proverbial wall between the photographer and client. I wondered how a photographer could be successful at capturing a person’s emotions and personality, if they had no clue who the person was? I wanted to change that.”
“I started Solid State Photography because I wanted to build friendships before building the client/photographer relationship. Once that’s developed, I’ve seen how much more comfortable my clients are with me and how much better my content turns out.”
What Clients are Saying
“Matt shot some amazing pics of my fiance and I that we’ll treasure for forever! He had some great ideas and kept the shoot totally causal so the shots didn’t turn out looking staged… he got several great candid moments that truly captured who we are as a couple! We would definitely recommend him!” – Diana Adams
“Matt and his team were superb. He both photographed and videoed our wedding. He captured great moments and offered fresh ideas for those “boring” family photos. The effects in both photos and video were awesome. Matt listened to us, to the event we were hoping to create, and he nailed it. He was almost invisible, yet caught every moment with perfection. This company has our utmost respect and we highly recommend them.” -Ray Horvath
“We were extremely satisfied and impressed by the whole experience Solid State Photography provided for our wedding. Matt really captured the excitement and energy of the event. The pictures covered a variety of both traditional shots and artistic expression, and we received countless compliments afterwards on our wedding photographs. Matt is an extremely gifted photographer, who is passionate about his work and has a talent for capturing the essence of an event. I would highly recommend Solid State Photography to anyone! ” – Jeff O’Brien
“After capturing beautiful photographs for my sister’s senior prom, I was absolutely thrilled to get the chance to have my own shoot with Matt. I had no idea what to expect, but Matt brought the perfect combination of professionalism while still being personal. I would absolutely recommend Solid State Photography, and hope that our family has the chance to work with him again! Thanks Matt!” -Ariel Fashchi
“I’m truly stoked about sharing my experiences in this life with others; Solid State Photography has allowed me to share this passion with others. I spend 100% of my efforts to ensure my clients are comfortable and having fun!
I enjoy loud metal music, going to shows, snowboarding, paintball, car culture and meeting new people. I love my wife, family, friends and more importantly my relationship with Jesus Christ – the sole provider of the many blessings I’ve experienced in this short life.
My goals for the next handful of years are to continue to grow my skills and establish long-lasting friendships doing what I love to do. I want to use this site to keep people updated on my life, both personally and professionally, and convey how passionate I am about capturing it on camera. I know I have a lot of growing ahead of me, but someday I hope that my work can inspire others.”
