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.
