    Very good day in the middle of a few sad days.

    From our day being cancelled to giving Matt 6 days notice of our wedding day. He was a true professional. The day was rushed due to a parent being very unwell. Matt captured exactly what we wanted and spoke to our family with such kindness. He then rushed through some images so it gave us something to enjoy". Please book him you won't be disappointed.

    It was my pleasure. My first wedding back after 'Lockdown' and I couldn't have asked for a friendlier family, you made it easy for me with everyone being so happy and just enjoying the moment. I am so glad you were happy with your service and the quality of your photos. Thank you for your review it means a lot. Matt

    Perfection

    Words can’t express how happy we are with what Matt did; it was just perfect from beginning to end. He went above and beyond, caught every magical moment and made the memories from our day last forever it such a beautiful way. He’s so easy going, confident in his ability and most of all - so very talented. Can’t recommend enough.

    Matthew was so great and accommodating and put my mind at rest once we had had our first meeting. Couldn’t recommend him highly enough.

    I was recommend by a friend to use Matt and I wasn’t disappointed at all. I absolutely love my photos and the process of booking a photographer was not stressful at all. The level of service and quality of the photos was definitely worth 100 times more than what we paid and that made it all the better. I would definitely recommend Matt to anyone.

    Matthew Johnston Photography's reply:

    Thank you Emma for your kind words. I had such fun photographing your special day - your family were such fun and made me laugh throughout the day. I am so happy that you are happy with your photos. Matt
