“Couldn't have been a better day, and Matt couldn't have been a better photographer. Discreet, creative, insightful, passionate, professional are but a few adjectives that spring to mind when describing Matt and his work. A consummate operator who encapsulates for me what photography should be about. Matt's has a confident and compelling attitude to photography which leaves you feeling like you are in very safe hands; from beginning to end. We'd recommend Matt to anybody, without hesitation, and sure you'll be delighted with his work just as we were”

"Matt was the perfect gentleman - polite, friendly, professional and unobtrusive. His style is modern yet classic, capturing the emotion and joy of the day. Everyone we have shown has loved the slideshow and photos, which bring back fantastic memories. A couple of our friends loved the photos so much that they've booked Matt for their forthcoming wedding too. Thank you again for giving us some wonderful mementos from the best day ever!"
Emily & Ned
"We love the candid and quirky pictures that Matt snapped on our wedding day; they captured the essence of the day and portray some of the personal moments that could easily be overlooked and forgotten. Matt blended in so well, that many of guests have commented that they didn't even notice that their picture was being taken. We also asked for some more traditional group shots and Matt did a great job of managing our relatives quickly and professionally- no easy task! We would highly recommend Matt and are thrilled with the results"
Avril and Chris
"We cannot begin to thank you enough for all your work on our amazing day! You were truly professional yet we were able to have a good laugh with you at the same time. Your laid back style suited us perfectly, no pressure!! All our friends and family love all the pictures, everyone has said they are the funkiest and best wedding pictures they have seen. We wish we could re-do the day all over again and if we could we would definitely have you there again. We will treasure our pictures forever and can't wait to get one of your fabulous albums made!!"
Kim and Brent
“We booked Matt for our wedding on July 2, 2011 and never looked back. Picking a photographer is one of the most important vendor choices for your wedding day, the pictures will stay with you a lifetime. Matt is a consummate professional who made us feel completely comfortable throughout the entire process.
Leading up to the big day, Matt was available to answer all of my questions and gave us advice on how to best make photography fit in with the events of the day, which resulted in a very smooth and stress free day.
On the day itself, Matt arrived early, was very pleasant and made us all feel at ease. The first thing Matt did was to climb out the window and out on the roof to get some shots of the garden, and he kept showing this kind of creativity throughout the day. Although Matt does not typically direct photos he did give useful pointers on where to look or how to hold your chin, which was extremely helpful for a photography newbie like myself. Having Matt at our wedding was a pleasure, he was always available (even during his break) but never got in the way, and he seemed to genuinely enjoy his work.
And as for the results of Matt’s work, I am overwhelmed - seeing the pictures from our wedding brings back the atmosphere, the feelings, the people, and puts a big smile on my face!”
Cornelia & Gero
"Everything from the first contact (enquiring about a quote), through the preparation's for the big day, his relaxed and effective approach on the day, right up to the quality of the results was first class! Matt spent time with the bride-to-be whilst she was getting ready, capturing some great images of her and the bridesmaids without being in the way or putting anyone out. He then joined me (the groom) and the rest of the wedding party at the church and captured all the emotion and the little moments perfectly as everyone arrived in such good spirits. During the service he was able to capture so many great pictures of us and our guests without interfering or being remotely distracting. After the service we got the desired "posed" pictures in a timely manner and then heaps of fantastic more candid ones both at the church and back at the reception venue - he never seemed to have a downtime, constantly moving around and taking great pictures.
we have (and will continue to) recommend Matt"
Rich & Becky
"We cannot thank you enough for the beautiful images you took of our special day. The slideshow you created brings me to tears every time I watch it and sums the day up perfectly.
From the minute you arrived at our house, on the morning of the wedding, it was like having a friend here and you put us all at ease....especially the children, who you were a natural with. I'll never forget our young daughter and niece asking "Where's Matt, Where's Matt...Cheeeeese!!!".
Our wedding guests are still commenting now, not only on the beautiful pictures we have of the day, of which numerous guests have said "they are the best wedding pictures they have ever seen", but also how well you got on with everyone and were like another guest at the wedding.
We have, finally, chosen the images to make up our album and the amount of time it has taken us just shows how amazing the pictures are. We can't wait to see the finished album now and show it off for years to come! Thank you"
Nicola & Danny
“We will be forever grateful to Matt for his amazing photographs, he is absolutely true to his word and captures the real emotion and memories of the day. To me, Matt's photo's tell a story from start to finish and when you see the photo's you'll see your wedding day from a whole new perspective. We were adamant that we didn't want to be dragged from pillar to post all day and night having photo's taken and this fitted perfectly with Matt's natural approach, non-intrusiveness and style. Matt took us off on our own for a short period of time to get a few photo's and to also give us a breather and actually spend some time together and reflect on the fact that we'd just got married which is a really nice touch. The time we did spend with Matt was really relaxed, calm and enjoyable, he truly is such a pleasure to be around, it felt so easy and effortless. Pictures really do tell a thousand words and this couldn't be any more true when looking at the fantastic images of Matt's work. So many people have made so many nice comments on Matt's exceptional photos and style and they have even brought a few of them to tears”
Kim & Paul Fowler
"When we saw Matt's style of photography we knew we had found the perfect mix of contemporary, modern and creative vision to capture one of the most important day's of our lifes! Meeting Matt and discussing the day and how we wanted a mix of quirky yet traditional wedding shots, candid documentary style moments and the hidden small details was effortless. On the day Matt made everyone feel at ease, even a very nervous groom! Calm, collected and always in the perfect place, our guests commented on what a "superb gentlemen" he was and how they didn't even realise their photograph was being taken. Nothing felt staged or stifled, and the shots of Craig and I were perfectly timed so it didn't feel like we were being dragged away from our family & friends! We were absolutely blown away by the final photographs, our family & friends love them and we have the most beautifully captured memories of our day we will treasure forever - we are so thankful for Matt's time, efforts and amazing talent but most importantly being such a pleasure to work with"
