Royal Hart Studio


Hi, we’re Matt and Anna Bye, the photographers at Royal Hart Studio. We are based in Minneapolis, Minnesota and specialize in wedding and portrait photography.

Photography is, by our estimation, one of the best ways to artfully capture the true essence and beauty of the individuals and couples we meet. It is our passion and driving purpose to serve our clients through photography.

We have been practicing photography individually for years, and began photographing together in 2015. Matt’s background is in darkroom photography and black & white film, and he now applies his strong foundation of techniques and creative eye for composition to the digital medium. Anna comes from a photojournalistic background and excels in capturing fleeting moments and pure emotion. She started as a photographer for magazines and newspapers and found her calling in working with couples to preserve their wedding day exactly as they imagine.

Together our styles complement each other to best capture your wedding day or personality. Your experience is the most important part of your day, and we will work tirelessly to assure that you will have tangible memories you can treasure forever.

We were completely blown away by Royal Hart Studio. Anna and Matt are incredible photographers. My fiancé and I had an amazing engagement photo shoot with them. They really took care of us and gave us the authentic photos we were looking for and a lot of laughs as well. They truly are an amazing couple, as well and when we were feeling nervous about a certain pose they walked us through it and made us feel very comfortable. 10/10 would recommend! :)

Anna & Matt were beyond anything we could’ve hoped for as photographers. They were highly organized and impeccable at efficiently running our photoshoots on the big day, and not only that, they were kind and gracious to our wedding party, family, and guests. We loved how helpful and accommodating they were- so full of wonderful ideas that captured our day perfectly! We don’t consider ourselves to be overly photogenic people, but Anna and Matt used not only artistic strategies to capture our best angles, but worked arduously to make sure we were comfortable and enjoying ourselves, making the photos genuine and perfect! We absolutely could not be happier with our choice to go with Royal Hart Studios!

We had such a great engagement photo shoot with Matt and Anna. They brought so much energy and encouragement right from the start, and made my fiancé and me feel comfortable right away. They got to know our stories and it was very evident they cared about us on a deeper level. Even in a blizzard, we enjoyed every second of our time with Matt and Anna! Not to mention our pictures, which turned out amazing. I highly recommend Royal Hart Studio for any photo session! You will not be disappointed!

Matt & Anna are very professional in their process. As their friends, my fiancee and I were impressed with the details they had ready to lay out for us in their contact, as well as their genuine interest and expertise in planning out the timing of our wedding day the way we wanted it to look. They are also extremely skilled at what they do & have an uncommon eye & timing for capturing the most special moments. They also have great instincts with how to use and capture the natural light allowing the photos to look unaltered and true to its specific moment in time. With family photos, weddings, or engagements, you want to look back at photos & be able to literally see memories. The skill of the Byes in capturing complex things like emotion and personality in still images, is remarkable. I wouldn't want anyone else taking my wedding photos.

You won’t be sorry you chose to work with Royal Hart Studio. Matt and Anna do a phenomenal job of tailoring their photos to a couples’ unique style and capturing the individual feel of each couple. We gave them a few words to describe what we were going for on our wedding day, and they combined those words with who we naturally are together to capture moments rather than awkwardly manufacture them. They were also very discreet and not at all distracting during the ceremony, yet still managed to capture the significant moments with style. Matt and Anna are both individually fantastic photographers, but the combo of the two is dynamite! Huge thank you again to Matt and Anna for their work—we couldn’t be happier with our pictures!
