Hi, I’m Matt, father of two, husband to my amazing wife Tonia and I take photographs of people.

I’ve always documented my life with photographs, not words, I’ve just never got on with diaries or journals. But photographs tell the story for me. They tell me who I went to South Africa with in 1998, what my son looked like the day he was born and the look on my daughter’s face the day she started walking. And those photographs bring the memories of my life flooding back to me. That’s why I love photography.

I want to tell your story, give you memories that will last a lifetime. Your Mum wiping a tear from her eye as you take your wedding vows, your first married kiss, the way your children look when they laugh in a way only children do, the dress you fell in love with the moment you saw it. Being able to give people photographs of these moments is why I love what I do.

I live in Essex but no matter where you live, I’d love to hear from you. So drop me an email, connect on facebook or tweet me.
