My children asked Matt to take photos at our civil partnership ceremony. That was a surprise and what a wonderful surprise. Matt could engage, capture the atmosphere and take beautiful photos making our day even more special ! We would definitely recommend him to everyone who wants a professional but friendly treatment.

incredible

Matt was absolutely everything we could hope for in a photographer. Both me and my partner
Don鈥檛 really do photos we feel awkward usually but Matt helped us relax. He executed any request we had with complete enthusiasm and confidence and his photos did not disappoint, every one of our guests loved interacting with him on the day. Absolutely would use Matt again if we have the chance. 10/10 in every category.

The best investment we made for our wedding

Finding the right photographer was one of the most important things for me in the wedding planning process. I'm a part time model so the last thing I wanted was to feel like I was working on my wedding day. Matt and I had a facetime call and straight away I knew he was the one! We had an engagement shoot several months before the wedding so we could meet properly and meet his partner (2nd shooter) we had such a nice time and got some beautiful shots. This really cemented my faith in him as a photographer. On the run up to the big day he was there to answer any questions I had and sent a form so I could add any little bits I needed too aswell as my shot list.

On the day Matt and Jo were seamless. They melted into the background and you barely noticed they were even there. When the formal photos were needed they made sure to get these done as quickly and efficiently as possible so we could all get back to the reception. They stayed until well into the night to make sure every shot was taken.

We received our photos back within a few weeks which was amazing! And we're so happy with every single photo. They captured every moment perfectly and I have absolutely no complaints.

Absolutely amazing

We spent a very long time reviewing wedding photographers before finding Matt. From the very beginning of the process he took time to learn about us and what we wanted from him, he was so helpful offering advice and words of experience to help us through the whole process. On the day, he could not have been more helpful. All of our guests were comfortable and happy with his presence, leaving us with beautiful and natural photos of our guests rather than the awkward over posed photos we were dreading. We have ended up with the wedding album of our dreams after the whole day was captured so beautifully. I could not be any happier with our choice to have Matt taking our photos and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

Absolutely amazing!

We booked our family shoot with Matt due to needing to update the old ones and I鈥檝e always been a bit shy around cameras! But all I can say is he makes you feel so incredibly comfortable and his ideas for photos were just pure amazing! We now own a whole album full of the most beautiful family photos that I have ever seen and will continue to use Matt for the foreseeable xx

What a fab Photographer!

From the moment we first met Matt, we knew he was the right photographer for us. Super relaxed and friendly, but clearly knew what he was doing with a camera.
Neither my husband and I like having formal photos taken so we really wanted the majority of our photos to be natural.
We鈥檝e had a few comments saying that our ceremony photos look as though we didn鈥檛 even know Matt was there and that鈥檚 exactly how we felt. At no point did we feel that a camera was in our faces and the photos totally reflect the real emotions and pure happiness of our day.
Matt worked so hard during the day to ensure that not a moment was missed. We can鈥檛 thank him enough for capturing amazing memories for us 馃挄
