& YOUR LOVE STORY (the unedited version)

…these are a few of my favorite things.


From the outside, I look like an average professional-joe but the truth is, I’m a NewYorker at heart with more than a few passions in life. I’ve traveled the world, made friends I could never forget, been to more concerts than I can count, and spent an inconceivable number of nights (turned into mornings) dreaming about my next adventure.

My passion for people and desire to see them become the best version of themselves is why filmmaking speaks to my soul. I’m not here to capture the filtered, staged, Insta-styled version of your life – I’m here to capture YOU. Real, raw, in the moment, and in ALL of your glory.


Your life is your story. Blare some house music and live the damn thing. I know I am.

I’m the guy who’ll Catch the plane, take the time off, stay out later, tell one more joke, play one more song, and drive the extra mile for the drool-worthy cheeseburger. While having fun and trying to stay out of trouble, I’m constantly working to be a better human.

I encourage those I love to do the same. To go after things they’ve always wanted to do and be who they’ve always wanted to be. There’s not enough time in this life to play by someone else’s rules.


I’ll be there for you (when the rain starts to fall) – and all of those other cliche pop culture references.

There’s an internet full of wedding videographers out there and, if you’re just looking to check another name off your vendor list, I’d suggest going back to Google. I’m here to be your teammate, your partner, your pick-you-up when you’re feeling down pal. I’ll escort your nana back out to the dance floor, take a shot with your dad after he gives his speech, and make friends with the DJ so he plays the songs you REALLY want to hear.


As long as there are stories to tell, you’ll find me with a camera.

Life is short. Your wedding is just one blip on the radar. But it’s a blip featuring everyone you love the most and the person you’re going to grow old with. I want to be there too. And, if you let me, I promise to do so much more than just take a few frames of you in a gown. I’ll bottle up every moment you never want to forget with all of the people you never want to live without. So, what do you say – am I your guy?


Lauren and Tim

We used Mateo Vale Productions for our December 2, 2018 wedding and it is no exaggeration when I say it was hands down, the best decision we made (aside from getting married to each other of course!) Matt was so organized, creative and created the most incredible trailer, journey film and raw footage. His pricing was reasonable and the work produced was INCREDIBLE. He made us both (and our families and friends) feel so comfortable and relaxed during the whole day! It was raining on our wedding day, and I didnt want to get my dress wet for pictures, so Matt offered to carry me while my husband held the umbrella over us! Matt truly is invested in capturing your best day, and invested in his couples. We are so elated to have used Matt and Mateo Vale Productions!! Book with Matt, you won't be sorry!!!
