I’m all sorts of things to all manner of people [surfer, cliff jumper, mountain biker etc], but people/portrait and landscape photography have long been a passion.
Photographing people and landscapes requires two very different and distinct disciplines but spending time learning both was a blast.
For the last 10 years I’ve also learned to shoot watersports, particularly coasteering/cliff jumping/coastal and cave exploration [even won an award in 2012 for THIS image]. This new type of photography has forced me to think hard about composition and light in a fast moving, wave lashed and crazy, fun environment.
During those years I hadn’t realised how useful it would be to marry all of this learned technique and experience for the fast moving, organised chaos of a wedding!
My own perspective on marriage is of an institution of the greatest importance. Consequently I’m delighted to be involved so crucially in recording the union of two souls. I count it as a unique privilege to be involved as the Wedding photographer in the lead up to the big day and then the event itself! As the only professional to be with the couple from the beginning of the day to the end, what a buzz… I love dealing with the varied pace, people and art of a wedding, I thrive on encouraging the couple and responding to their guests whilst constantly creating with my beloved cameras.
Let’s do this!
Matt was brilliant on our wedding day and captured it perfectly; he had great ideas and was enthusiastic through out our day (he was also a guest highlight on the dance floor!) We wanted relaxed and natural photographs and that’s exactly what we got! His editing time was fantastic, we didn’t have to wait long before we could look back on our day.
Absolutely LOVE our wedding photos. Matts creative and inspired ideas mean we have the most amazing photos with stunning backdrops of the beautiful north coast… matt genuinely loves what he does making it a fun, friendly and totally enjoyable experience. We can’t begin to say how much not only us, but our friends and family admire our photos. The day was captured perfectly.
Matthew’s patience, focus and fun way of approaching the family photo challenge we set was beyond refreshing. It was an experience in itself. Could not recommend him more for equipment and ability – indoors or out. We love how he captured us at play – Thanks for the memories – John, Katy, Tommy and Sean.
Matt Wright Photography did both our engagement & Wedding photography & we couldn’t be happier with both the results & how he got them he was very friendly & helpful, we would highly recommend him to all our friends!
We had a great afternoon with Matt, brilliant locations, he was relaxed and which meant we where too and the results are fantastic (they are the first proper family pic’s to hang in our house). We’ve had lots of people commenting on their quality and the results, thanks Matt!
Matt completed a family photo shoot for our family and we were delighted with the results! The shoot was fun and relaxed, with epic scenery as our backdrop…he knew just where to take us on that particular day to make the best of weather. Matt was patient and professional and we would definitely use his services again.
