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!

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.

Matt was absolutely amazing! Firstly, he was incredibly flexible during such a stressful time planning a wedding, providing different quotes for different dates and plans - he made life so easy for us. Secondly, Matt was wonderful on the day - not too intrusive, but still capturing every special moment. Matt is also such a lovely guy and is clearly so passionate about his job and making couples happy. Lastly, the photos Matt produced were perfect, we could not be happier with them. He produced some absolutely amazing photos with light and made us see our venue from a whole new perspective. Everyone who's seen our photos could not have loved them more. Matt is going to photograph our reception later this year (hopefully!) and we cannot wait for more beautiful pictures to remember our special day. Thank you for everything, Matt - we cannot recommend you highly enough!Sent on 17/02/2021

Amazing from the word go!
We had to rearrange our wedding 5 times due to Covid and each time we emailed Matt, he was so thoughtful and helpful throughout the whole stressful period. By the time we got round to our wedding day, he came in and was so helpful, he helped get my nephew dressed by telling him he would be invisible if he put on his suit, he helped us arrange our flowers correctly. My favourite thing was that from the get go he was taking photos the whole time but was 'invisible', meaning, he wasn't just in our faces telling us to pose he just let us get on with what we was doing and sneakingly took pictures of us throughout the day, capturing all the little moments that made the day so special. I honestly couldn't thank him enough for all the help and the absolutely beautiful photos he done. He also sent us our photos the very next day as we had such heartache and stress trying to actually get married! I couldn't recommend him enough to anyone looking for a photographer. Thank you so much Matt, lots of love, Luke and Ocean xxSent on 05/01/2021

Matt was fantastic on our big day. We didn't want too many posed photos, rather more natural shots of our guests. He managed to snap some really great photos for us, especially of our daughter.Sent on 14/01/2021
Matt is very relaxed and we didn't feel pressured into anything we didn't want.
