Essex Wedding Photographer

Hi, I’m Matthew Long and I’m an Essex Wedding Photographer based in Shoeburyness but shooting weddings all over the UK. My unobtrusive yet creative approach to photographing weddings allows me to document your day as it happens, telling your unique story as it unfolds. I want my photos to be natural, not forced. So no bossing anyone around, no cheesy set ups, just photos of you and your loved ones celebrating your day.

In addition to natural story telling photos, I also pride myself on producing creative portraits of my couples. I want to give people art that they can be proud to hang on their wall, not just the standard “stare at the camera and smile” type portraits. The vast majority of my couples are not particularly comfortable having their photo taken and I find that my approach to portraits puts them at ease.

Catherine and Rob wedding testimonial

“We chose Matt as our wedding photographer based on the strength of his portfolio. We loved his style and how he captured the day unobtrusively. He was a delight to have there and we are so very pleased with the photos. The speed of turnaround and the interactions we have had with Matt both before, during and after the big day have been spot on. We recommend Matt to anyone getting married!”

Jo and Brad wedding testimonial

“From the beginning of our initial meeting we knew we wanted to book Matt. The quality of his previous work was outstanding but more than that he made us feel comfortable. He was very easy to talk to and understood straight away what we wanted from our pictures. On our wedding day Matt was professional, gave good direction during portraits, consulted us when needed but most of the time just got on with snapping away without us even realising! The results were amazing, we are beyond happy with our photos.”

Natalie and Chris wedding testimonial

“Matt exceeded all our expectations, we were spellbound when we received the photos and love looking back at them to relive the most amazing day. He also helped the day to run smoothly by organising everyone when group shots were needed and by his flexible approach to both our day and night portrait shots. We cannot recommend Matt enough!
