About Matthew Lawson Photography

Hello! I'm Matthew, a wedding photographer with over 10 years' experience documenting special days in a distinctive, memorable style.
I cover Manchester and the North West (I particularly love working in the Lake District), as well as North Wales and the Midlands. I'm more than happy to travel further afield and have been lucky enough to shoot weddings in Scotland, Ireland and the Channel Islands.
I'm committed to providing a reliable, friendly and above all professional service, with the aim of removing a little bit of stress from the preparations for, and enjoyment of, the big day. Fully insured, with carefully maintained up-to-date equipment, an almost fanatical devotion to backing up my memory cards as the day progresses and a fainly embarrassing collection of spare batteries.
I offer full-day and part-day coverage, with free consultation and planning, and ongoing contact right up to the day itself. I think I'm pretty good at what I do, and I'd love the opportunity to prove it to you!
Please get in touch if you'd like to find out more.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the price of your service?

Pricing varies from wedding to wedding but as a rule I'd say a full day (from morning preparations through the service and wedding breakfast and right up to the departure of the couple) normally comes in around £800

What services do you offer?

Full- or part-day wedding shoots, engagement shoots, comprehensive post-production and delivery of 300+ high-res images on long-life digital media. Albums and photobooks are available on request. Secure online access included.

How far in advance should I contact you?

For peace of mind and to ensure availability, I'd suggest a minimum of 6 months before the wedding date.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No. Never.

Are you able to travel?

Yes. For longer distances some expenses will need to be covered but I'll travel on my own dime within reason.

What style of photos do you take?

It's normally called "reportage", in that I like to document the day from start to finish in a less formal, more relaxed style (rather than posing everyone for fixed-grin group shots)

What kind of technology do you use?

Two full-frame DSLR cameras (one is back up for the other), plus a rather funky long-zoom camera which helps me get candid shots of people without intruding.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes, if required, I can provide a secure password-protected webpage where images can be viewed and downloaded (in web-optimised format, ideal for social media and online sharing).

Do you send all the photos taken?

No. Of course not. Part of the service I offer is spending the (fairly considerable amount of) time to select the best images.

Do you charge per hour or per event?

Per event for weddings.

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


How do you charge extra time?

£75 per hour.

What are the forms of payment?

Bank transfer

How do you work?

I work like a demon. All in. No slacking.
