Matt Adcock – Creative Director / Co-Founder Del Sol Photography

Matt was named as one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by American Photo Magazine and Huffington Post titled Matt a “Wedding Trailblaizer” for his innovations with underwater trash the dress photography.  His work with Janine was published all over the world after he produced a video outlining a difficult circumstance that happened to her. He was later interviewed by CNN and his work has appeared published on every national TV network throughout the USA and in tens of thousands of websites all over the world.  He is also a frequent contributor for Huffington Post.

Matt has been shooting weddings for 17 years overseeing over 1000 events, originally from Atlanta GA.  He is currently based out of Playa Del Carmen Mexico and is available for travel worldwide.  His travel for destination weddings has taken him as far as Thailand and Hong Kong.  He has worked extensively throughout the USA covering events and has had a major focus on destination weddings throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.

Recently, He has been focusing on designing unique experiences, no longer referring to his work as a photo session.  These epic shoots include work as as a family vacation photographer, designing custom elopements and unique vow renewal experiences in amazing places.

Read more testimonials about Matt in his bio page. We particularly love this one:

Matt is an artist of the most talented company that I’ve met…He doesn’t capture a moment but captures a story, captures light, love, chapters and tells a story without words, songs or recordings.  That in itself is what makes del sol magical! Del Sol Photography is not just a company, it’s an experience, a bond, an art, a lifetime experience, a blessing, a feeling! Matt captures love, life and moments that are the most magical and that in itself what makes him stand out and that is a gift that lasts a lifetime. – Rashan
