Full Description
Hi, I'm Matthew, a wedding photographer based near Tring on the Hertfordshire - Buckinghamshire border. My approach to capturing weddings is friendly and relaxed - I’m not the type of photographer that bosses people around or tries to direct the day. Instead, I blend in with your guests and capture the day as it unfolds, creating images full of intimate moments, honesty and soul. From the photography on the day through to the editing suite, I always try to produce something in my work that is not influenced by latest trends but which has an intrinsic and timeless value; that is - a consistent and beautiful set of images of your day that are heartfelt, genuine, and truly reflect you, your family and friends, the details, and the little moments that make your wedding day one-of-a-kind. I am available to travel throughout the UK, and also undertake a small number of overseas weddings each year.

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Matthew
There are many different wedding photography styles out there and it can be a bit of an over-whelming process finding a photographer to capture your day. But my advice to couples is to simply find a style that you love, that you connect with, that you feel captures the joy and emotion of the day in their images. You won't regret investing in great photography I promise! If you love what you see here and on my website, I would love to hear from - wherever you are based :)

You really have captured memories to last a life t
Since the first moment of contact, Matthew was amazing. He is one of the kindest, calmest and most talented people we have had the pleasure of meeting. Throughout the planning process, Matthew was always on hand to answer our questions and queries. During our engagement shoot, Matthew took the time to get to know us both individually & as a couple; making us feel instantly at ease around him and the camera. On the day of our wedding, it came as no surprise that Matthew was calm, friendly, discreet & able to capture so many moments. Throughout the entire day, Matthew worked tirelessly in the unexpected heat; he made our guests feel comfortable, organised group photos, making everyone smile & worked around the timings of the day making sure we could spend the maximum time possible with our guests. He saw opportunities for pictures that none of us had ever imagined, showed so much patience with our one year old flower girl & worked wonderfully alongside our other suppliers. The entire gallery is just beautiful and has made us so emotional looking back at it all. Thank you so much - you really have captured memories to last a life time. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Matthew to anyone in need of the best!!

We were nothing but relaxed when Matt was around
We were nothing but relaxed when Matt was around. He is a genuinely lovely man, with an exceptional talent. He managed to capture the beauty & emotion of the day, whilst remaining completely unobtrusive. There are no words that will do justice to Matthew's work, because his photos are indescribable. We could not recommend anyone more highly.

Your personable approach made us feel comfortable
We cannot thank you enough for blessing us with moments & memories that will last us a lifetime and beyond. Your personable approach made us feel comfortable throughout the whole process. You stripped away any illusions of 'supplier and recipient' and we really felt we got to know you & truly felt comfortable dealing with a genuinely kind & caring human being.

FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?

I was lucky enough to photograph a wedding at the Tower of London. From the bride getting ready at Anne Boleyn's house, the procession of the bride and groom by the Yeoman Guards (Beefeaters) through the on-looking tourists, and our own private photoshoot in the grounds when the Tower closed for the day - made it a rather memorable day!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

joyful, honest, modern, beautiful, timeless

What about your business are you most proud of?

The rapport I build with my couples. I want to give you an fantastic experience from start to finish!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Wedding styling has changed a lot the past few years. Couples are re-inventing wedding styling and finding news ways to do almost everything. Pinterest is full of real weddings and real weddings who have followed their ideas and personalised the day exactly how they want. So my advice is along those lines - make the day personal to you, you don't have to be dictated by old traditions or latest trends.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

We live in the UK. It often rains, and I have photographed many weddings where is has rained all day or for part of the day. It's hard not to get a little obsessed with the weather in this country, particularly when your wedding day approaches! But rest assured, it will not dampen your day but add to the memory of it. Your family and friends are their to celebrate you as a couple and nothing will change that. Bring some umbrellas (and wellies if you want!) and we'll make the most of it, or we'll create some beautiful portraits indoors instead. Either way, I'll worry about the photography and you can get on with having the best day of your lives :)
