Cristy and Cathy Matos


So excited you stopped by! We are Cristy and Cathy: the wife and wife photography duo of I.C.Y. Designs Photography. Dreamers at heart, we let our dreams be our guideposts along our journey and they led us to where we are today. What we learned about ourselves on that journey was how much we adore LOVE: stories about love, finding love, falling in love, expressing love, marrying our loves. We paired our passion for photography and our passion for romance together to create this opportunity to preserve your most romantic moments.  

Our Photography Approach:

Are we the right photographers for you?  Well ... we hope so!  But please know that if you read ANYTHING on this website, please please please read this page. It is so important that you take the time to get to know us. Your photographer is probably the most important vendor you will choose (I swear I’m not biased), so it is totally worth it to take those few extra moments.

Imagine this, it is your wedding day and all you want to worry about is getting to the alter and making sure your guests have an amazing time. Who wants to spend hours being herded around, having someone you barely know dictate the timeline of your wedding, worrying about what time it is and are you going to miss something important, when you could be spending those precious minutes with your family and those who came to celebrate your love. It’s your day, live in your moment!

Our style is candid, authentic, sincere, and true to the feel of your wedding. If you love our style, please know we work best when we are allowed to let our creativeness flow. If you have browsed through our wedding work, I would estimate 95% of it is hands off and photojournalistic, and that is truly our style. We love to live in the moment, smile, laugh, and go with the flow.

We are all about capturing a person's essence in a given moment: a glance, an expression, someone's countenance; that is our focus. We are dedicated to beautifully documenting your wedding day naturally as it unfolds.  We will provide you with stunning images reminding you of just how you felt on your day; in that moment - authentic moments.

You will see from our photography,  we like to shoot moody with sometimes lots of shadow.  We will even go as far as to say our images have a bit of "attitude". If you like everything perfectly lit, bright and airy, we probably are not the photographers for you. If you want true, unadulterated candid moments of emotion that perfectly capture how you feel/felt on one of the most important days of your life, then we are probably a great match! We want you to be informed so you will be able to make the best decision.  This is your day and you deserve a photographer that will share your vision and bring it to life.

Thank you for taking a look at our portfolio and spending some time getting to know I.C.Y. Designs Photography. If what you've seen and read here resonates with you please let us know. You can contact us via email, phone, text, or web.  We are always happy to answer questions.  

It would be our honor to bring our passions for photography and romance to your day.
