Great photographer, great guy!

We met up with Matt to talk about the photography for our wedding, and as soon as we met him we knew we wanted to book him!
At our pre-wedding shoot and on our wedding day, Matt made us feel so comfortable and at ease. He's such a friendly person, and everyone at the wedding loved him.
The photos taken at our pre-wedding shoot and the sneak peeks we've had so far from our wedding are beautiful, better than we could have imagined.
Matt was the photographer for the wedding of a family member who recommended him to us, and we've been recommending him to everyone we know since.

An absolute legend!

Matt was recommended to us by someone who got married at the same venue and we are so so glad we chose him! Before booking, we met up for a catch up drink to see if our personalities aligned which I thought was a great idea as you want someone who you'll get along with so you don't feel awkward in front of the camera. Ever since, he has been brilliant throughout and kept up with communications super quickly (sometimes I wonder if he does rest?!). We did a pre-wedding shoot which he was so accomodating for, we had our baby and dog with us and we made him go on a VERY long walk which he didn't complain about (to us at least haha!). We had our big day on 17.08.23 at The Fleece Countryside Inn, he was on time, did what he needed to do, helped out with little bits like moving my stuff from room to room, but never got in our way and still captured all the little details whilst we got ready. He got the photos back to us soooo quickly (again, does he rest?) and they were all so beautiful. He also filmed highlights of our day for a video montage and we sobbed watching it back, We couldn't be more grateful for Matt for capturing such special moments that we'll rememeber for the rest of our lives. He was so easy toget along with, made everyone laugh, even our guests said the same. We truly see him as a friend rather than just another supplier!

A absolute delight!!

We got married in America in October and we were looking to hire a photographer for a happily ever after party over here, Matt was recommended to us by some good friend’s and I’m so glad he was!! He was a absolute delight to work with.. Matt put everyone at ease and got some amazing candid shots ( of people that don’t generally like pics taken) he was up for anything and felt more like a friend than a photographer.. nothing was too much trouble and I’m over the moon with the all the shots he took! He got them back to me in lightening speed too!!! I’m ready to book another shoot with him for the summer and autumn!!! If your thinking about booking Matt, it’s honestly a no brainier!! Just do it you will not be disappointed

The Mitchell’s Wedding

We were struggling to find a local photographer that would give us what we needed at our wedding that wouldn’t break the bank!! Came across Matt on a Facebook wedding suppliers group and so glad that we did!!

Matt was fantastic and an absolute bargain considering the service he provides. The quality of his work and attention to detail is second to none he really is an undiscovered talent.

Matt slotted in on the day like one of our guests and worked his magic we didn’t even know he was there for most of the day! He has a great personality, passion for what he does and works with you to understand what you want without you feeling pressured. Nothing is too much trouble, he controls the day and captures the most amazing moments!

Would highly recommend and will definitely use Matt again in the future. Constantly looking at our photos they’re fab - thank you!

Would absolutely recommend!

We hired Matt as our wedding photographer and we were not disappointed. From the minute we met him we knew he was the right fit for our day. Both myself and my husband hate getting photos taken but Matt is such an easy going and down to earth guy that he put us both at ease and made our photos fun to take.
He walked around our venue the night before the wedding and spotted creative places to take pictures that turned out to be some of our favourites.
Our finished photos were fantastic and all our guests commented on how natural Matt was and how well he just slotted in to our day. He made us relax and it didn't feel like we were being followed around by a "photographer" which also made the photos much more natural.
I would highly recommend Matt Dean photography and plan to hire him again for family photos in the future.

Wedding photography

We had the best wedding day and Matt managed to capture it all. He really put his all into the day and felt like a part of the family as he blended in so well. Our photos are amazing And we can’t wait to share them with our family and friends.

Engagement and wedding

We booked Matt for our wedding I was apprehensive at first as Matt had just started out in the wedding industry.

I then decided to book an engagement shoot with Matt to get an idea on how we like the photos and how we felt around him, well all I can say is straight away it felt like we was around family, we felt so relaxed! And then the photos came through the next day and WOW! I couldn't believe how amazing they turned out.

A year before our wedding we got some bad news so we planned a 'fake' wedding day and had to have Matt capture it, he captured everything I asked for and even though it was a very hard day he still made the day special.

Let's say after this I was obsessed with Matt taking pictures of us... I then booked another photoshoot (graffiti) oh and once again the photos were just AMAZING!!! And the day went so quick because all we did was laugh!

Then comes our wedding day the day we have all been waiting for.. Matt turned up early doors to capture myself and bridesmaids getting ready and you couldn't tell he was there, the day was just amazing and you can see that in the photos Matt captured, I recieved my photos around 4 week after the day and I cried... cried with happiness they were so much better than I could imagine!
He captured natural and posed shots, so many family and friend photos which everyone will cherish.
The day after the wedding family and friends were complimenting how brilliant he really was.

I have blown up around 10 photos and have them in poster sized frames around my house.. they are just the best!

I have plans for the future for Matt to capture.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer or just a photographer in general then Matt is your guy!

The best photographer 🌟

The first time we met Matt was at our Pre wedding shoot, we were struggling to decide where to have it and safe to say we were both pretty nervous, neither of us had done anything like this before. Matt recommended a beach shoot and safe to say we had so much fun and the photos were amazing!
Then the wedding day…… Wow. Literally captured the most amazing memories for us to look back on, again whilst having the best time and feeling so relaxed. All our family and friends have commented on how brilliant he was on the day…. And then how outstandingly amazing the photos are. We can’t stop looking at them. We actually struggle to put into words how grateful we are. We would 1000% recommend Matt, it’s clear to see how much he loves his job, nothing it too much trouble and he was such a laugh and pleasure to be around all day. He truly is the best Photographer!
Thank you so soooo much ! Xx

Couldn't have asked for better

It seems hard to express succinctly just how pleased we were with Matt.

He's the friendliest dude. His infectious enthusiasm makes the entire process - from before the big day and the first meeting(s) right up until the close of the evening celebrations - so much easier and more enjoyable for the both of us. My wife and I are not the most photographic people in the world, we needed a little bit of encouragement to pose at times, but Matt made the entire process feel relaxed and informal and managed to coax it out of us.

The guests, bridesmaids and wedding party all commented on Matt's character and ability to capture them at their best, as well as bringing smiles and laughter to even the most begrudging photo subjects (you know how certain Dads can be...).

All of that is without speaking of the quality of the work. The photographs look absolutely fantastic, we couldn't have asked for a higher quality of work. We have an online album that will be secure and accessible for the rest of our lives, and already we have had great joy in reliving certain moments captured by Matt.

I know we were rather stressed trying to source vendors, photographers etc. in the lead up to our wedding but save yourself any hassle and book Matt. We couldn't have asked for a better guy, or a better photographer.

Where can I start!
Matt is a truly incredible photographer and person to have on your wedding day
It shows that photography is his passion as it reflects in his photos and how he goes above and beyond on the day to capture them
Matt came and met me and my husband before our wedding for a meeting and discussed what kind of photos we’d like got to know our personalities so he knew what photos would be right for us
And if I’m honest when you think photographer some people love photos some people hate photos, you just didn’t feel like you had a camera pointing at you constantly and we loved that, but yet he captured the most beautiful moments and they can often be the best photos the natural and unexpected
All in all we wouldn’t have changed a thing and Matt it was a privilege to have had you as our photographer for our big day, thank you doesn’t even cut it!

Absolutely amazing!

Matt has created the gallery of our wedding that reflects our personalities perfectly. He came to meet us before the wedding so he could get to know us both, on the wedding day he blended in amazingly, all our guests have commented on how friendly he was and how he fit in just like he was a guest, they loved him. I could take photos forever, whereas my husband hates photos, but Matt found the perfect balance of staged shots and candid shots to ensure we got the content we wanted without being overwhelmed. He’s gone above and beyond and produced so many amazing photos and got our gallery completed and uploaded within a couple of weeks. Worth every penny and more, Matt is definitely our ‘go to’ photographer from now and I will highly recommend him! Thanks so much Matt!
