    Would not hesitate to recommend - stunning photos

    From start to finish Matt was amazing we could not have asked for a better photographer to capture our special day. We unfortunately had to postpone our wedding three times and Matt was so accommodating.
    On the day you didn’t even realise he was there taking the pictures as he made it so effortless. He made a very awkward person in front of a camera feel extremely comfortable.
    The final result of photos were just stunning, the pictures just speak for themselves. Matt is one of those rare talents you find of chance and I would not hesitate to recommend him

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    That's lovely to hear Sasha, thank you.

    I had a great day in the sun too and you chose a lovely venue in The Gardens, Yalding to have your wedding.

    Take care.

    Matt.

    Fantastic Photographer!

    We were delighted with the service Matt provided from start to finish. Unfortunately we had to postpone our wedding twice which Matt completely understood and was able to accommodate the new dates. Leading up to the wedding I had a few conversations with Matt and he gave some great advice in preparation for the wedding day. When Matt arrived at the hotel the morning of the wedding, I felt completely relaxed as it felt like I’d known him for a while. He’s friendly, pleasantly easy to approach and talk to, polite and professional. Throughout the day Matt blended in with the guests and it wasn’t obvious he was taking photos (which is how we wanted it). The photos are lovely and tell a wonderful story of the day. They’re relaxed, discreet and natural with a few planned group photos. We’re are very pleased with them. I would highly recommend Matt to anyone looking for a wedding photographer (or any event).

    Civil Ceremony 2021 - Manor Gatehouse

    We came across Matt by chance from a recommendation by another photographer, so glad we did. Looking at Matt’s work we knew he would deliver what we wanted for our small Civil Ceremony.

    Having spoken with Matt in planning our day he was extremely accommodating. He guided us with useful suggestions that we had not even considered, which turned out to enhance our day. Matt worked well with us when we had to postpone our first date and kept communications throughout.

    On the day Matt arrived at our home to capture our preparations and the start of our journey through the day. He blended into the background, not causing us any stress or hassle. In the process he took some stunning photographs.

    He then met us at the Manor Gatehouse when we arrived with our three guests. Matt was very mindful of the Covid precautions in place, even incorporating them within some of the photos. Matt introduced himself to our guests putting them at their ease from the outset.

    During the ceremony Matt was respectful, unobtrusive and engaging. Again, capturing the ambiance, fun and the seriousness of the ceremony. Which of course, he did beautifully.

    During the day we felt Matt became part of our celebrations and not just the photographer. We were blown away by both the gallery and slide show he produced. Matt has a real talent.

    We have already booked Matt for our reception later in the year and look forward to seeing more of his creative work.

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    Hi Andrew & Jonathan,

    It's a lovely review. Thank you!
    Looking forward to seeing you next month too.

    Thanks again,

    Matt.

    Exceptional

    Matt was highly professional and personable from first contact and after our wedding day. He is excellent at making people feel relaxed and comfortable with him. My wife and I are especially fond of his candid shots - it's remarkable how he manages to just blend into the day. We will cherish our photos. Furthermore he was highly reliable and communicative throughout the challenges of the recent year.

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    Thanks Sean,

    That's really kind of you I had a great day too.

    Take care and speak soon.

    Best Regards,

    Matt.

    Wedding photography

    We had the pleasure of Matt being our wedding photographer and couldn’t be happier with the outcome. We had a pre-shoot due to Matt offering a special offer at the time for Blue Light/Emergency workers and he helped us feel comfortable and relaxed from the start. On our wedding day Matt did not get in the away or take too much time and the pictures are amazing. Couldn’t of chosen anyone else to capture our special day any better. Thanks Matt

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    That's lovely Ellis, thank you!
    I had a great day too and enjoyed working with you all!

    Excellent photographer and personable service

    From the first meeting we had with Matt, he was really friendly and approachable. He made us feel relaxed from the start.
    The pre-shoot he had as part of the package was very helpful. It got us used to the camera and how Matt worked.
    The quality of these photos assured us that we had made the right decision and that our wedding photos would be good.
    On the day Matt blended in to the event. He had a laugh with us and again put everyone at ease.
    Matt explained all the album options we had but did not blind us with science. He kept it simple and easy to understand.
    The quality of the photos were excellent and will give us a lasting memento of the wedding. There was a good mix of black and white and colour photos which added to the album.
    I would highly recommend Matt.

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    Hi Gary,

    Thank you for these words. I had a great time working with you and your family.

    Take care.

    Couldn’t have asked for more

    Matt was brilliant. He was professional and flexible and felt like part of the family on the day. The photos we have are stunning and a brilliant mixture of documentary style and traditional family shots. We have loved sharing them with our friends and family and remembering such a perfect day. Matt went above and beyond for us, moving the date 3 times thanks to Covid.

    We cannot recommend Matt enough!

    Hi Lindsay and Dan,

    That's lovely to hear! Thank you for sharing.

    Have a lovely weekend!

    Take care.

    Excellent photographer

    Matt was simply the best! Upon first meeting with Matt we knew we had made the right decision. He put us at ease and fitted in perfectly on the day. It was like having a friend their but one that took excellent photos. All guests commented on how lovely he was!

    The photos are beautiful! You have done a superb job. You knew the best location to get the pics, the best time of day and the best lighting. You made us laugh and it really didn’t feel like an effort to have photographs done.

    Thank you so much. I can’t recommend Matt highly enough .

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    Hi Emma & Brad,

    Thank you so much for this review - It was a lovely day and the weather was amazing too which makes everyone happy.

    We Love Matt

    Matt is an amazing photographer, as soon as I saw his work I just knew he had to photograph our wedding, he’s so relaxed and made everyone feel so comfortable (even me the bride who HATES having her photo taken) his work is just out of this world, the photos he takes are so natural, and we couldn’t thank him enough for capturing our day! Thanks again Matt, you Legend x

    Wedding at the Darenth

    Matt has been brilliant. Briliant with staying in touch with us from start to finish. Brilliant when we had to rearrange the date of our wedding because of COVID, twice, and so accommodating. Brilliant at the pre-shoot, he really put as at ease and it resulted in some really fantastic photos (alhtough I was sceptical about doing a pre shoot it was well worth it, both with the photos we got but also in getting a feel for doing staged photos for our big day). Although Matt was not available on our big day he lined up Anthony, a fantastic photographer, who was friendly, great at listening to what we were after and making some really great suggestions so we got some great photos. Brilliant at creating a really wonderful photo-film and editing our photos making sure our day is immortalised. We would have no hesitation recommending Matt to anyone who needed a photograher.

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    Thank you David, really pleased you had a great day too. I will pass on the message to Anthony too.

    Speak soon.
    Matt.

    Amazing photographer! Highly recommend.

    We had to rearrange our wedding from August 2020 to May 2021, therefore left us with a short notice task to find a photographer. We asked for recommendations, several people mentioned Matt and we are so glad they did. Looking at Matt’s work we knew he would deliver what we wanted and when speaking to Matt on both the phone and in person we knew we had found the right person.

    Matt was fantastic throughout the whole journey, from start to finish, from the booking process to the big day itself. He gave us brilliant tips to add that extra touch that we had not even considered. Matt worked wonderfully with us throughout the build-up, kept up great communication and set up a brilliant pre-shoot at the venue prior to the big day. This built up a great rapport and gave us an insight into his work and how he gets such fantastic photos and stories of his previous client’s special days.
    Matt knew the wedding was not going to be quite what we wanted with lower numbers, but he made it feel completely normal, kept the focus on it being our day, the magic was still going to be there just in a different way.

    On the day Matt arrived at the venue ready to capture our preparations for the big day. He captured some fantastic shots of us both with our closest loved ones preparing for the big occasion. Matt was quick to introduce himself and from then he blended in with our guests, it felt like having a friend capturing our day, involved in all the laughs and conversations, we could not have asked for more. All our guests loved Matt, they were all so complimentary and it is a testament to him.

    Matt was absorbing throughout the day, he captured all the key moments beautifully and lots of other memories that you miss with all the madness surrounding the bride and groom. These are memories that we will cherish forever, and we thank Matt for this.

    Matt is just a fantastic and all-round nice guy; we could not recommend him enough. If you need a wedding photographer, you need this man! I would go as far to say, arrange your big day to make sure he is available!
    Thank you, Matt, you were great!

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    Hi Matt,

    Thank you for this. It sounds like I paid you! lol
    I will send that fiver in the post....

    Really - thank you for these words and I hope you love your gallery and album! I wish you and Rebecca the best with your bump and my advice is; get the sleeps and the long runs in whilst you can.

    Speak soon.

    Matt.

    Incredible Photographer! Couldn't be happier!

    Matt captured our wedding day beautifully and we couldn't be happier with our photos!
    Our original date was postponed so it was a stressful few months but Matt kept in touch the whole time and was amazing when our day came around.
    All of our guests commented how funny and friendly he was and just made everyone comfortable. We have some truly stunning photos, thank you Matt for your incredible work!

    An amazing day in pictures

    I don’t think we had any doubt that Matt would do a fantastic job on the day.
    Little did we know how important some of those pictures would become for us so soon after. We were very glad Matt was there to take them and do such a wonderful job.

    You Won’t Be Disappointed!

    We couldn’t of been more happier with Matt as our wedding photographer. Our wedding was a very relaxed event where we just wanted people to celebrate with us with no formalities. Matt understood what we wanted from the start and we had no worries leading up to the day that what we wanted wouldn’t be delivered. We had a twilight wedding in November so light wasn’t on our side but Matt didn’t have any concerns that he wouldn’t be able to capture our day how we wanted, which gave us confidence in him as a professional unlike some photographers we had met previously.

    On the day Matt was amazing flitting between both the bride and groom getting ready and guests arriving. During the ceremony and after he blended in so brilliantly we didn’t even notice him.

    We were so excited to see the photos and relive our day and we wasn’t disappointed when we got to see them. The day had been captured from start to finish and was amazing to see our guests enjoying the day.

    Matt Rock Photography's reply:

    Thanks Natalie, Not sure if you realised you added the wrong date. You put your wedding date as 8.6.2019. lol
    It was 29th November 2019... :)
    Don't do that on your 1st anniversary otherwise you will be a bit early...

    Thanks again and take care.
