Hey, I’m Matt, and I’m a Documentary Wedding Photographer. It’s awesome to meet you. How’s it going? So, if you’re here, you want to know a bit about me, right? Well, if you ask my Wife Jess, (I hope) she’d say I’m the perfect partner for everything from binging Netflix on the sofa to a swanky spa weekend (seriously, why don’t we spend more time in cotton dressing gowns and slippers? heaven!) If you asked our Cat, Fergus, he’d probably just say ‘oh that guy, you mean the one that feeds me?!’ And if you ask my couples, they’d tell you I’m their new mate who made the whole ‘being photographed’ bit of their wedding day feel fun and effortless. Check out more of what my couples have said over here.
When I’m not shooting weddings or shackled to my editing screen, you’ll find me out on my bike with my mates, drinking copious cappuccino’s across Kent. If not, I’m out on a mini adventure with Jess (who is a kick-ass Hair & Makeup Artist by the way) probably doing something very similar. Coffee and cake is a pretty regular feature at Ebbage HQ! I’ll probably squeeze in a game or two of cricket every summer as well. I was half-decent in a past life, but my aching shoulder and lack of runs or wickets remind me that was a long time ago now!
Are you the one for us?
I’m really not exaggerating when I say I absolutely love what I do. As a documentary wedding photographer, I get to spend my days telling amazing wedding day stories with some equally amazing people and call it work! I shoot my weddings in a relaxed, natural and unobtrusive way, and I’m always on the lookout for those really amazing raw, honest moments of true emotion and connection. I’m not much of a traditionalist when it comes to shooting a wedding. So, if you’re after someone who turns up, bosses everyone around for a bit and shoots a tonne of photos on a massive telephoto lens from the other side of the venue on the basis that “you won’t know you’re being photographed” then I’m probably not for you.
But, if you’re looking for someone who will make you feel totally at-ease and excited, gets right in the mix with you, makes sure that the majority of your day is spent with everyone else you’ve asked to be there (not away somewhere shooting endless group photos), has a laugh with everyone and gives you a set of photos that make you cry all the happy tears and bring back all the emotions of the day, then game on! I’m also super lucky that I get to travel the world with my cameras and tell some amazing destination wedding stories. Literally living the dream over here!
Let’s get chatting!
If that sounds like a win to you and you’re keen to chat more about having me along to spend the day with you, get in touch and let’s get the ball rolling. I exclusively shoot 30 weddings a year, because I want to make sure I’m fresh and raring to go for every couple I work with, and I’m lucky to receive a lot of enquiries every year, so peak dates tend to go quite fast. If you haven’t already seen it yet, you can view all my pricing and package information here.

Shall we have some fun and make some memories together?
