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.

My wedding portfolio should give you a good idea of my work and by Best of 2014 post will be a great starting point to start exploring my blog. Visit my pricing page to find out more about the packages I offer and get in touch to enquire about availability.

Stay in touch via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Ello, I can’t wait to hear from you.
