Summer wedding

Matt was absolutely brilliant from the moment we met him. We had an engagement shoot with Matt and he also came to our wedding party. His relaxed and funny style makes you feel instantly calm and makes the whole process thoroughly enjoyable. At our party, Matt worked tirelessly and our guests loved him. He added a different dimension to the party and I am delighted with his work. He managed to capture real life action and fun, seemlessly, without staging anything. I would highly recommend using Matts service.
