As a young boy, Matt showed an unusual interest in photography and in his parent's photo albums. His first yellow, underwater Minolta accompanied him everywhere. It was through that simple lens that he learnt to capture the sublime beauty of nature.
Matt’s love and delight in his surroundings is evident in his work. He captures and reveals the expression and detail that is seldom evident to the naked eye. His images are alive with emotion and movement; he enters the world of that image and allows us a glimpse of his excitement, his humour, his soul.
His mentors, close friends and travel opportunities have all influenced his approach to his work over the past 20 years. He is passionate about his photography and always has been. The love he has for his work, the people and places that he encounters along the way is apparent in the detail and perspective, in the stories he tells in his photographs.
" I never have a set way of shooting. Every couple is different, so every wedding will be different. After all, my role is a storyteller, focusing on the story of your day, with all its unique atmosphere, fun and beauty. It's always a pleasure when I work with couples who give me the freedom to be creative and capture the natural emotions of their wedding "
I'm fortunate to work with 15 amazing couples a year at home in Jersey and on location in some of the most beautiful destinations around the world. Building a personal relationships and trust with my clients is a must before the wedding day, through a face to face consultation or on Skype, to truly understand my clients personality and vision for their wedding.
