About Creating Diamonds Wedding Photography

Growing up in the East End of London, Matt was surrounded by art, culture and imagery and soon developed a love of photography. These days Matt lives with his wife and children in Bristol and has swapped city snaps for family photos, developing his relaxed and personal style that lends itself perfectly to weddings. 

When you book Matt, he will commit himself to not only finding out about the kind of images you're after but also who you are as a couple so that he can capture completely authentic images. With his relaxed approach and healthy dose of humour, you'll feel totally at ease with Matt on the day.

  • "Best decision we made when picking a photographer for our wedding day!"
    Dale & Liz Utting on 24 October 2018

    From 9:00am to 9:00pm Matt was shooting, from capturing me playing with my son outside the registery office too our first dance on the evening. Every little moment and every big moment was captured. Also I liked matts vision, he sees scenery and lighting that you don't realise is there and his passion when he talks about Photography is undeniable. All our guests mentioned about how hard he works during the day. Best decision we made when picking a photographer for our wedding day! Dale & Liz Utting

  • "You will not be disappointed in Matt and his work"
    Darren And Tracey on 24 October 2018

    We met Matt at the wedding fair that was held in our home town Devizes and was immediately impressed by his work. After seeing other photographer's work around the wedding fair we decided to go with Matt, a decision we are glad we made. From the start we new we had gone with the right choice, he came and had a look at places we had in mind for some pictures to be taken befor our wedding day. And the passion Matt had in what he saw and was planning was truly amazing and the pictures he took were stunning. All I can say is a big thank you to Matt. You will not be disappointed in Matt and his work. Regards Darren & Tracey Smith

I shoot Canon at Present with L Series Lenses, Canon Speedlights and Profoto off camera lighting. I carry at leat 2 bodies and back up lenses at all times should technology fail.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I have an overall approach to wedding photography but at the same time always adapting as every venue is different or couples may have specific requirements. I personally do not feel that one rigid approach works with photography.

What kind of equipment do you use?

Canon bodies and Lenses, Profoto Lights, Magmods for light shaping and some times beauty dishes, Gary Fong Spheres, Manfrotto Tripods.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

All my clients receive and Link to a Smug Mug Gallery, which is private and can only be used with the Link I provide to them directly. They can then send the link to whom they wish to.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

I always tell my clients 4 weeks due to editing time and other work commitments booked, If can deliver early, which I do 99% of the time then I will.

Do you send all the photos taken?

I provided 400-500 fully edited images, which really tells the story fo the day in the best way. I believe in quality and not over saturation or any particular part of a weeding day. Images can vary in count also due to the size of a wedding party.

I give full copyright to my clients for personal use such as printing etc etc. The copyright does not include using them commercially in anyway.

I charge per event/packages. I very much have to tailor my packages according to my clients needs, which I also find very helpful as you can work closely to really get exactly what there client wants. One size does not fit all.

If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

I believe there is no such thing as a 9-5 and Im just not they guy anyway. Most wedding take between 9-11 hours depending. In certain instances clients may have fireworks and need me to stay and extra 3 hours or so until they start. This is discussed and agreed on so we are both happy on the additional hourly fee.

My preferred payment is by bank transfer, which and invoice is generated in advance for. Sometimes Clients like to pay in other ways, which we discuss and arrange to suit.

How do you work?

I'm really about relationships and communicating with my clients via, phone, text, Skype an din person really helps as I do not like to be the photographer that just turns up. I like my clients to be super computable and on first name terms. This way on the day my clients are so much more relaxed around me and in turn the camera, which really does help in a huge way for natural and beautiful photography.

Yes, I am covered for Public liability and Personal Indemnity via Hiscox Insurance, which is one of the countries leading insurance companies.
