Hi, I'm Matt, I don't really like to go on about myself, I prefer to hear from you and have a chat but here's a little about me anyway.
I am not only a wedding photographer, I mostly shoot weddings but I bring my lifestyle and fashion experience to my weddings. I'm told I am super chilled which helps keep things calm when things get hectic on the wedding day.
Although I am dedicated to photography, I have a lot of interests. Mountain Biking and Snowboarding used to be my life, now that I am a photographer the adrenaline levels have been turned down. Although recording moments in time and creating something beautiful does give me a buzz, one of the reasons why I am a photographer.
I think there’s a reason why the tradition of a photographer at a wedding has remained, it’s simply the most beautiful way to do it. A wedding is an elegant occasion so I like to treat it as such. I won’t be seen giving orders or hauling around the sort of equipment that would make Spielberg envious. If you do this you will miss the stories. The stories are unfolding in front of me, they don’t need my intrusion, the events will happen, and that’s what I do, simply capture the story as it unfolds.
Matt Lee is a superb photographer. I cannot recommend him enough. He truly captured the day for us and we have some brilliant photos to treasure. Not only is his work, frankly, breathtakingly good, but he is also a totally lovely chap. He has a very easy, chilled manner which really helps when you are not used to having your photo taken at all. He is very calm and professional and extremely skilled at what he does. We have some really lovely photos of our friends and family having a good time, which is really what we were after. Thank-you Matt!
From our initial contact with Matt he made us feel relaxed and excited about our big day. His communication is great and he answered every question I had (there were many!).
We had a pre wedding photo shoot which gave us an opportunity to get used to being photographed and at this point we realised how relaxed Matt is, which instantly put us at ease.
We received our photos within a week, they were absolutely stunning and we were so excited for our big day!
On our big day Matts relaxed approach allowed us to enjoy every minute of our day, we hardly knew he was there but the photos tell the story perfectly, he didn't miss a thing, from signing the register to my veil falling out!
The weather wasn't on our side for our wedding, it rained all day, but Matt did everything to make sure we still got some fantastic shots in the rain (our choice!) and in the freezing cold in the evening (our choice again!). He really did go the extra mile for us!
Our photos are beautiful, natural and timeless, we are so grateful. Thank you Matt!!
Prices depend on the location of your wedding and time of year. Where ever, and when ever your day is please do just send me a quick message and tell me about your plans, and I will send a brochure of this years pricing. I would like to do my best to tailor something for your day and nothing is impossible, so please do just say hi at first.
I am a photographer, so, I take photographs :) . Some of the things I often do are photograph amazing weddings, usually for the entire day so I can produce a documentation of the whole story from start to finish. Pre wedding shoots, portrait shoots, Rock The Frock sessions, I do them all.
I mostly to cover the entire day from start to finish, from this I create an amazing story as it unfolds.
A Pre Wedding shoot, high resolution files, private on-line area, all the advice I can offer from my experience at hundreds of weddings and photo shoots are included. Please do message and tell me about your plans, we can work on how to create the best cover for your day.
Please do message as soon as you begin to plan your day, I am booked up to 2 years in advance. It's important to take your time finding your photographer so it's important start as soon as possible. If you are looking at short notice please do message anyway, you never know!
I have never covered more than one wedding in a day. I dedicate myself to one story at a time.
Yes. I travel anywhere, literally anywhere.
Anywhere within the UK mainland is usually no extra cost. Outside the UK please do message for a quote, I just check flight prices and costs and come straight back to you with costings.
I like to capture things naturally as they happen, this is often referred to as Documentary style. I do like to inject some fashion and lifestyle flair when possible, after all why not you'll look amazing. You will most likely want to keep friends & family happy so this will mean some of those 'family formals', this is not a problem and I will make them as painless as possible.
I use top end professional standard equipment, this is usually Nikon and Fuji top of the range cameras and lenses. I use the most reliable and well made memory cards and storage equipment. Post production wise safety and security of your pictures is priority. This means backing up memory cards and using multiple RAID drives (google it...) so that your pictures are safe as houses. To process images I use Photoshop and other Adobe programs. Professional photography equipment is expensive and for a wedding I will make use of about 15k worth of equipment.
Without giving a lecture on photographic theory, I approach photographing people as if they are people, funnily enough! Most people aren't models so I do the photography bit and you be yourselves.
Professional level cameras, lenses, and post production equipment. Lenses are the most important part so I invest in the best money can buy.
Every one of my clients have their own private on-line area. From here you can download, share and all that fun stuff. This is accessible from all types of device.
I aim for you to see your first pictures within 2 weeks.
All images that have passed quality checks and then edited you will receive. No two weddings are the same so the amount of images depends on the weddings. For an average wedding if there is such a thing you can expect around 500 images.
Consistency throughout you photographs is absolutely essential, so I mostly work alone. I do have trusted photographers I work with when logistics require this.
Us photographers are a helpful bunch and we are do our best to help each other out. I have agreements with fellow professionals and we act as sick cover to each other in case of the worse. Saying that in all the years of shooting weddings I have not once had to make use of this arrangement, but it's good to know it's there.
I do like to show off amazing weddings, so I do occasionally use pictures on-line. If you would like your pictures to remain private just let me know.
We usually have everything worked out beforehand so the prices are per event as per agreed.
I usually have no time limits to my entire day coverage so this should not be required.
We will have a chat and work something out.
Usually by BACS, or what ever is easier for you.
I work as inconspicuously as possible. A wedding is a wedding, not a staged photo shoot. I naturally want you to enjoy your day as a wedding, this also aids my style because I want you and your guests to be relaxed and natural.
You can email me, give me a call on the phone or we can meet up in person for a chat
about your day. If you are not available to meet in person prior to booking then that's
fine because we will always meet before the wedding day at the Pre-wedding shoot.
Nearly every single one of my couples says this, I don't often hear "yes I love
having a camera pointed at me!''. It''s really not a problem when I use the methods of
shooting I use, there's none of this awkward
posing you might think. It''s more us having fun and interacting. You'll discover this in the Pre Wedding Shoot.
Of course, lots of couples opt for a pair of mini albums to give to the family. Or you
can have an additional album for yourselves, anything is possible just speak to me about
your ideas. I love creating items for the wall, many of my couples opt for a particular
image with an artistic edge to set off the interior of their home. To have some art in
your home where you are the subject is great.
Easy, Just let me know and I do the rest.
YES. The last time I managed to set fire to that country manor the insurance paid for a
complete restoration. Only kidding! But yes I''m totally and utterly insured.
