I'm Matt, I’m a dad of a crazy little 3 yr old and new baby girl but most importantly I'm a wedding photographer - who by the way bloomin' loves weddings!
I don’t go big on posing – (it’s awkward – I get that), I don’t take you away from your wedding for hours - I just take super relaxed, candid documentary photos.
I'm renowned at putting people at ease, I’m super organised and I can turn my eyelids inside out (that last part may not be overly useful for your wedding day!) – but most importantly I capture beautiful, romantic images in a relaxed way.
I'd love the chance to capture your special day so get in contact, I love a chat!

What is the price of your service?

How far in advance should I contact you?
The further ahead the better due to popular dates getting booked. A minimum timeline would be six week.s
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
God no - photographing a wedding is a full time/flat out event for a photographer and quite frankly you deserve my full attention!
Are you able to travel?
Yes i am - please contact me if further afield than my 1 hour travel time - and i can tailor a quote accordingly
What is the charge for travelling?
Each quote will be unique and we can discuss on a 1-2-1 basis
What style of photos do you take?
Part of me wants to put "Awesome" but i appreciate that's not very helpful. i am a lifestyle photographer - this means it's predominatly documentary (me being a photo ninja and not getting in your way) with 10% of the day reserved for more curated shots. I would discuss in advance with you my plans and a draft timeline to make sure you are comfortable
Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?
I often gets requests for the dramatic night shots with sparklers - some photographers cheat and add in photoshop - i don't - i do it all in camera on the night and can complete the shot very quickly.
What kind of equipment do you use?
My camera brand is Nikon - i have DSLR's and multiple lenses which i can nerd out with you if you would like!
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
oh yes - love my online gallery and will provide you a portfolio online you can download and share with friends and family
Do you send all the photos taken?
No one wants to see my test shots surely! I will be sending in the region of 400-500 photos for all day coverage - these are edited photos in JPG format and represent the best of the best i take on the day.
Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?
When you book you book myself, if needed i can draft in a second shooter to boost the candid photos. I can also refer you to viedographers and an excellent band.
Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?
I own the copyright of the photos but by entering into a contract with myself i am giving you access to use and share the photos. A small percentage will be utilised for advertising on my webpage/facebook/Instagram and also if enquired by a magazine i have the option of promoting a blog entry on their site - however for this i would only do this if you were 100% comfortable.
Do you charge per hour or per event?
Lets face it weddings are expensive and no-one wants any hidden surprises - so i will make sure all costs are quoted up front and it's clear on the timeline we will be working to.
What are the forms of payment?
BACS payment to my business account is preferred, however can accept credit cards.

“From the word go Matt listened to our vision for our day, the style we wanted and the natural shots we hoped to capture- and that he did.Sent on 21/04/2020
The whole process was so smooth and easy and Matt was helpful every step of the way, from choosing images on Pinterest to show our preferred style to on the day, being in all the right places at all the right times.
Even when Storm Dennis hit, Matt knew just what to do and got us the outdoor pictures we so desperately wanted as a couple.
We were thrilled with everything and can’t thank Matt enough. And if that wasn’t enough, we certainly didn’t expect a slideshow of highlights when opening our gallery for the first time - such a special touch.
Matt then surprised us again by sending us a personalized memory stick and a selection of our favourite shots printed that we’ve now framed for our home.
Everyone has said how amazing our photos are and how well they capture the day and we couldn’t agree more.”

Matt made us feel so at ease for our big day. He managed to work really well with a tight schedule and stayed later into the evening to make sure that he got all of the shots that we wanted. Couldn't have asked for more!Sent on 21/10/2019

Matt goes beyond to capture your day
Matt is a photographer who takes the time to understand your dynamic as a couple and what you want to remember from your day. He then translates this into capturing the perfect moments in perfect pictures, without putting a lot of pressure into it or making you feel *in front of a camera*. Matt has amazing talent at posed pictures e.g. family ones but really outshines in the candid pics he manages to get on film. Thanks for all you did for us and our *unusual* wedding we couldn't have asked for anyone better being our photographer. Tammy & Matt HSent on 25/11/2019
