We had a great experience with Matt. He helped keep everything stress and hassle free for us in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. He was a great person to have around on the day and did a great job of fading into the background and keeping everyone comfortable. The personal touches of remembering my grandparents names was really notable on the day. The photos we received were amazing - with lots of people commenting that there were too many great ones to choose from that they had to buy more frames! We have recommended Matt to all of our friends and one guest has already booked him for their upcoming wedding.

Amazing Photographer!

Matt was brilliant from begining to end, he even went out his way to research a local nature reserve for a great backdrop to our couple photos which we was really impressed with.

We are so happy with the photos especially the golden hour shots we got, they are beautiful. We have had so many comments about how well he captured us.

He also got some really lovely ceremony and candid photos of our guests.

Getting the group photos was really comfortable and straight forward, Matt was friendly and confident and made everyone feel at ease during the process. He was also really good with the kids and even got some nice shots of them playing.

Overall we were just so pleased with the service we got from him and would recommend him as wedding photographer to anyone!

Matt is amazing!

My wife and I booked Matt to be the photographer for our wedding and we鈥檙e so glad that we did! Matt was absolutely amazing. He was so professional, polite and easy to work with. He went the extra mile to make sure we got the perfect pictures and we absolutely did. He captured the vibe and energy of the wedding perfectly. We didn鈥檛 want many formal photos and wanted the majority of the photos to be candid. He did this to an absolute T! Matt didn鈥檛 pressure us to pose or be anyway. The photos we have are so natural and exactly what we wanted.

Thank you so much for capturing our day Matt and we would recommend you to anyone!
