About

Hey - I'm Matt, I’m a dad of a crazy set of little girls (5 and 2 yrs old) but most importantly I'm a wedding photographer based in Kent - who loves travelling all over the UK taking photos of each and every unique wedding.

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 guarantee that 95% of any gallery I deliver will be documentary photos.

I'm renowned at putting people at ease, I’m super organised but most importantly I capture beautiful, romantic fun and epic images in a relaxed way.

Please take time to look around, look at my prices and photos. If you have any questions at all, just reach out and we’ll get right back to you.

I'd love the chance to capture your special day so get in contact, I love a chat!

"Stop searching!! Everything you could dream of finding in a photographer and more Matt brings through in every shot, while making it feel like he's an extension of the family!" Jill & Paul

    Cannot Recommend Highly Enough

    Matt was the photographer for my best friends wedding a few years ago and I knew I wanted him as my wedding photographer as well. He was such a wonderful addition to the day and made everyone feel at ease. From the bridal prep, to the sunset walk, to the first dance, Matt was kind and encouraging and made it feel natural. There was nothing forced or too staged about how he works and the photos came out absolutely stunning. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

    Matt Trott Photography - WOW!

    Thank you so much Matt, we really couldn’t have asked for better photos! You made us both feel such at ease throughout the whole day and are amazed at all the photos you captured! We don’t remember being in front of the camera that much!!! All of our guests have told us that you were such a lovely guy, and we definitely agree!

    The whole experience from the initial meeting through to arranging a date night to view the final photos was just brilliant. We really can’t put into words how much you have exceeded our expectations , so again thank you so much!!!!

    If anyone is looking to book Matt for your special day please don’t look anywhere else, you won’t be disappointed!!!

    Amazing wedding photographer!!

    Matt was the best photographer ever!! He really went above on beyond on our special day to ensure we were totally looked after, giving us heads up about certain timings and making sure we had all of the photos we requested. Matt was great with all guests including getting children to smile when needed in some posed shots and selecting the best backdrops. Matt comes with plenty of ideas but is really flexible too. Outside of the more formal shots, we barely knew he was there, yet he managed to capture some wonderfully informal, intimate, and celebratory moments. We highly recommend his amazing photography skills to all!

    The best wedding photographer!

    Where to begin? Everyone thinks they have the best wedding photographer but in our case, I can say that is 100% true.

    From our initial video meeting with Matt, he was friendly, helpful and totally on our wavelength. We were after more natural, documentary style photos and he totally delivered.

    We hardly noticed he was there on the day but he captured every single moment beautifully.
    There's not one single photo that hasn't wowed us. With everything from golden hour pics, to traditional shots and unique photos - he really captured our day perfectly.

    We also loved the way he delivered the pictures to us - via a slideshow that we have watched far too many times to remember. Our friends and family have loved watching it back too and are still raving about his photos now!

    Would highly recommend Matt as a wedding photographer - it's one of the best decisions we made!

    Couldn’t have asked for anyone better!!

    We would 100% recommend Matt as a wedding photographer! He was super helpful even from day 1 when I messaged him having absolutely no clue whatsoever about wedding photography! He wasn’t pushy at all, gave us lots of information and left the decision up to us. We chose Matt for his amazing natural style of photography. He fitted into our day perfectly, so much so, some of our friends and family thought he was one of the wedding party and that we’d known hun for years! (In reality, we’d never met Matt before the day!) He wasn’t pushy or bossy on the day either, and was very flexible with times etc. The photographs he produced were honestly AMAZING!! Memories we will treasure forever. Thank you so much Matt!! :)

    Professional, organised photographer with eye for the special shots

    We chose Matt for our wedding in the summer because we wanted the natural, candid experiences to be captured and as we had no doubt, he delivered! Matt was professional from the get go, everything is planned out, his website to track everything is excellent and even with all the weddings back to back that he had with his excellent communication we were not worried about timelines, him understanding the shots we wanted and on the day he just slotted into the day so easily.
    His photos capture those planned and candid moments fantastically and his edits are sublime, it is exactly what we wanted for our day and we couldn’t have asked for more from him! Thank you for capturing our day exactly how we wanted it to be and giving us those life long memories to keep!

    Look no further!

    We were incredibly lucky to have Matt be the photographer for our wedding, we loved his work and when we found out he was available to photograph our wedding we were so excited. Matt made the whole process super easy and was great at answering all of our many questions.

    After three dates changes, four different venues and a fire we had become disheartened with the whole process of getting married. Matt was extremely accommodating and really helped us with all of the problems we had faced.

    Our wedding day finally arrived, on the day the wedding before ours had overrun and Matt was fantastic at keeping us up to date with what was going on and how long we would have to wait.... it helped calm down a stressed out bride!

    We received our gallery and sideshow of our wedding three weeks later and were blown away. We settled down to take everything in and were overwhelmed with how amazing our photos were..... the slideshow made me cry because it was so beautiful, even the music chosen worked perfectly.

    We can honestly say our wedding photos are fantastic and Matt captured moments that we missed out on, so it was lovely to see them for ourselves. We have had so many compliments on our photos and Matt's work. We are so grateful to him for capturing our day so beautifully.

    Matt the Magnificent

    We had our engagement photoshoot with Matt and knew he had to be the one to photograph our wedding. Matt is so warm, friendly and flexible. Half the time you don't even know he is there whilst he is busy capturing special, genuine moments (or the bride having food picked out her teeth by her bridesmaid - thanks Matt!!) with his documentary style photography. He always ensures his couple have something epic too. Such a special photographer and a blinder of a guy - so pleased we chose him!

    Couldn't recommend enough

    We decided to use Matt for our wedding photos after checking out his website and Instagram, which show some of the beautiful photos he’s taken. Thankfully he was free, within budget (he certainly wasn’t the most expensive we saw and can’t understand how people are charging more than him – it’s certainly not the quality) and able to make our wedding date. From that moment on, the whole experience of working with Matt was perfect – with some thoughtful extra touches on the way. Matt took the time to understand the type of photos we wanted and any key moments. His expertise was invaluable suggesting on the day if the lighting was right we try for some ‘golden hour shots’ which are absolutely stunning. Along with gorgeous formal and candid photos, Matt managed to capture all the special moments throughout our day. To have these memories captured for you to look back with such beautiful candid shots is simply wonderful.

    Aside from all the beautiful photos (and they really are) Matt was an absolute dream to work with on the day. Everyone has commented on the quality of our photos and how friendly and personable Matt was. If you are looking for a talented, passionate photographer who truly takes pride in his work, then Matt is the photographer for you. The hardest question will be which photos you end up picking to frame when there are so many to choose from!

    Matt is the best, book him if you can!

    Booking Matt for our wedding photography was one of the best decisions we made when planning our wedding. Not only was he an absolute gem to work with in the lead up and afterwards, on the day he was the perfect mix of firm (so you get all the photos you ask for despite the best intentions of wayward guests) and chill so that we look relaxed and happy in all our photos. Matt took the time to talk to us and really understand what we wanted and also made a lot of good suggestions for things that we hadn't thought about. We really wanted 'documentary style' shots and absolutely achieved that for us. Perhaps most impressive was the fact that I don't remember seeing him take any of them! He was so good at just blending in so that every shot was completely natural and captured many personal moments.

    We also love how creative he is with his photography and love our rainbow long exposure couple photo that is completely unique from traditional wedding images. Matt also did a fantastic job of putting the album together which meant that we barely had to do any work to it. Finally we loved 'e-Matt', it was efficient and meant that we could book things really easily and knew exactly where we were with all the documents.

    If you've found Matt and he's available for your date I'd say lock him down now. If I had other events in the future there is no one else I would rather have in charge of the photography.

    Couldn't have asked for more!

    Matt was everything we were looking for in a photographer! his professionalism, communication, flexibility and responsiveness were so so appreciated during our COVID wedding planning. He even moved dates and venues with us! He was so inconspicuous on the day but caught every key moment and we love the final outcome in terms of photos! We have had so many lovely comments from friends and family about him on the day and the photos he has produced for us. We couldn't recommend him highly enough as a wedding photographer; Thank you so much Matt!

    Cherry on top!

    Matt truly offers the full package, not only is he insanely talented but he really went out of his way to make sure we felt comfortable and everything was what we wanted. He always responded to all our queries pretty much immediately, he knew I had my heart set on sunset photo's and although our wedding day didn't bring out the sunshine Matt STILL managed using his magic tools to make the shots I wanted possible.
    Everyone in the wedding commented that he was great, we barely noticed he was there and it felt really natural to have him as part of the day. Personally I don't like the structured family photo's so Matt came up with alternative options and schedules that suited us better. He really went above and beyond, his style was so much more natural than many other photographers I looked at but he also brings something very unique and special to make his photos stand out. The video he put together for us was beautiful and you could really see the difference between his quality of work when compared to other wedding videos. Worth every penny!
