2013 – A year in review…

What. A. Year.

I’ve been here, there and everywhere. I’ve photographed all over the UK, Rome, Paris and Morocco. As Richard Ashcroft once said – I’m a lucky man. He also said ‘like a cat in a bag, waiting to drown, I’m coming down’, so we can’t take everything he says as gospel. Just take my word for it – I’m a lucky man 🙂

I can’t thank all the wonderful couples who trusted me to photograph the most important day of their lives enough. I had an absolute blast working with all of you, thank you.

It was seriously tough trying to narrow down over 15,000 photos to a bloggable amount, but I got there in the end. After much debate its down to 212. I hope thats 212 photos that will make you smile, laugh and who knows, maybe even cry.

If you’re new to my website and you’re after some more information on my style and approach to photography – head over to the INFORMATION page or check out my PORTFOLIO.

So, without further ado, I present to you – TWENTY THIRTEEN…

    What brilliant work dude. Love the egg and spoon race image! That eye contact on fourth from top. Love the bw first dance lift. What a candy floss capture! And that ‘no photography’ shot. Too many to list, awesome work dude.

    Absolutely superb work, Matt. Consistently stunning. I think my personal favourite is the kilted man lifting the boy off the ground – well observed & composed. Egg & spoon race is great, too.

    Well done.
