Hi, I'm Patrick, I am a documentary wedding photographer based in Yorkshire, England. I work with my wife Hollie Mateer. Our studio is called M and G Wedding Photography and we work alongside another photographer, Matt Godman. My dad, when he was working, was an Art and Animation lecturer, art and design teacher, and freelance artist. He always had a camera with him - a Nikon F2 was his main camera, . He was a very trusting father as he let me use it from an early age. So I started taking photos from a very early age. I studied art at school and was lucky to have access to their darkroom. From school, I went to art college and then University. Though I studied fine art, I always specialised in photography. At university, I worked in many different ways, shooting landscapes, street photography, portraits. I was influenced by Adams, Eggleston, McCullin, Meyorvitz, Friedlander, Frank, Arbus, Wall. At university, I met my close friend Matt Godman. After graduation, we both started shooting weddings independently. After some years, we decided to pool our talents and experience. M and G Wedding Photography was born. In 2015 I met my wife Hollie Mateer. She joined M and G Wedding Photography in 2017. Hollie is my wife, my best friend, the best photographer I know - and the most wonderful mother. We love working together, in particular, shooting together. She continually pushes me to be a better photographer, just through her sheer talent. I still shoot images on film today - particularly on holiday or days out. Rather than taking a digital camera or using my phone, I use my Nikon F100 film camera. This restricts me to 36 images, meaning I really take time when documenting - and enjoying - moments as they happen. I became a wedding photographer because I love photography. I used to shoot more commercial work, but over time, I came to realise my real passion was wedding photography. Every wedding assignment is shot in my own style - every frame is my own. In commercial photography, though I loved the challenge of working to brief, I always felt restricted. Wedding photography allows me to express myself through image-making in the way I want to. I never seek to repeat past work and I don't work to a brief. My clients just expect me to take natural, unposed images of their day in the style I am known for. [East Yorkshire Wedding Photographer]
As a wedding photojournalist I aim to capture the story and emotion of the day, in a vibrant and fun way. I am based in Hornsea, East Yorkshire, and have photographed weddings in this area but also throughout the UK. While I am primarily a wedding photographer I have covered events, festivals and studio work, but wedding photography is where my heart is. I worked as a second shooter for another wedding photographer for several years, whose style was very much traditional and each wedding had the same structure. It soon dawned on me that I much preferred to capture the little moments, the love and laughter and pure emotion of the day rather than a set photography list. My biggest achievement in photography was having one my photos exhibited in the Netherlands. The photo was of my son standing in a pool of water looking out to sea. My son is autistic, so to capture him in a moment of peace was quite rare. He's my real inspiration in life, no matter the obstacle he will tackle it the best he can.

Hi, I am Janina… the one behind the camera… you might want to know me a little bit before you invite me to photograph your big day! I am a proud Mummy of two amazing children Michael and Grace. Those two keep me very fit! I have been married to my best friend John since 2010. Family means everything to me and we love spending time together hiking, travelling and camping. I am a morning person and often I will get up at 5 am just to enjoy good coffee and early morning is the perfect time to do that. I love an outdoor lifestyle! Long walks and campfires are right up my street! I love animals, Freeman-our dog is a huge part of our family! I’ve grown up in a home where all forms of art were greatly appreciated. My Grandma still owns an art gallery. Photography has always been my hobby and passion! I speak Italian and Polish thanks to my family's bloodlines! I like pizza, cheese, gin, pizza, cheese, pizza (did I mention that I like pizza?) I also like holidays, driving, reading and obviously I love PHOTOGRAPHY! A good night out with friends is a must now and again! I love travelling and meeting new people. I also always find time to go to the theatre to see a good show. My music choices are all over place….from Nirvana, The Beatles and ACDC(thanks to my dad) to Little Mix Olly Murs and Rita Ora. Funny I know! Something weird about me – I don’t like chocolate!

Hi, I’m Aaron, a creative documentary wedding photographer from Northamptonshire. Often brave but always beautifully legitimate; I’m present and mindful of the fantastic moments of real joy and emotion that happen throughout a wedding. I don’t have any expectations of how your day will unfold, and I am continually working hard to capture the honest and fun that tells each wedding in all its unique glory. Being a photographer was a lifelong dream that I started chasing after buying my first SLR camera back in 2008, having trained as a graphic designer. I’ve never looked back! I know how big a decision it is to hire the right photographer, so here’s a little more about me so you can get to know me better. At the heart of my life is my lovely wife, Lindsay and our beautiful children; Imogen and Noah. I’m forever grateful to have such a warm, loving family, and they are my biggest inspiration. I play the guitar, and I’ve been told that I’m not too bad! I used to own a classic Mini Cooper in Tahiti blue. She was my favourite possession but had to go when I found out we were having our daughter. Today, I drive a sporty little Abarth 500. I’m obsessed with Stanley Kubrick movies, especially 2001: A Space Odyssey. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen it! One day I’m going to live by the coast. Our favourite towns are Hunstanton (I proposed to Lindsay just down the road at Wells-next-the-Sea) and Southwold. I used to skateboard, and I occasionally can still be seen riding about. I’m a latecomer to Indian food, but I can’t eat enough of it now. We’re all beautifully different. Every living soul is unique, relevant, exciting and can do great things. But I think the thing that differentiates my photography from that of my peers is my outlook on how I observe, document and tell the story of a wedding day. When my couples trust and invest with me, in return, I spend time in them. I’m obsessively committed to documenting the unique story of a wedding in its full comprehensive glory. My style isn’t choreographed or repetitive, and I never have a script for how I expect the cards to fall, I just put up a camera, observe and capture tiny moments in time. My style was born and grown from personal experiences, so imitation is impossible, it’s me that makes me different. [Northamptonshire Wedding Photographer]
Dom began York Place Studios at the tender age of 21 along with elder brother Liam. With her film photography background and fine art influences, she entered the world of weddings with the idea of doing things a little differently and in doing so created the founding principles of the York Place Style. Her passion, bubbly personality, and sense of romance puts emotion at the centre of her imagery. [London Wedding Photographer]
I live in the beautiful Norfolk Broads with my wife and two children. I have been photographing weddings since 2010. One of the best things in life is a good story and that's what my approach to photography is all about. I get a real buzz capturing those special moments, moments you might not remember or, perhaps, did not get to see. Even moments which, at the time, might have seemed insignificant will take on greater significance as the years roll by. Preferring to capture your day as it happens, I love working with couples who want to relax and enjoy their wedding day and not have to pose for photo after photo. I get my best images when you're just being yourselves - natural light and natural emotions! [Norfolk-UK Wedding Photographer]
I'm Bhavna, a.k.a Bhav, Bee, B, whatever is easy for you. I'm a documentary wedding photographer who lives in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside with my best friend and Husband Tom, our beautiful son Toby and a lot of gnomes and pixies. I come from a large extended Gujarati family in Tanzania, where we're all full of mischief - so if you're having a big fat Indian wedding, I'll feel right at home. Or as they say in Dar-es-Salaam, Hakuna Matata, as I totally love weddings that are full of happy chaos, lots of dhamaal and masti, the type of wedding celebrations that Indian weddings are all about! Love, warmth, and happiness that shines through your images is what I am to provide. My work takes me around the world to cover weddings of all types. I have travelled to Tanzania including Zanzibar, Kenya including Mombasa and Nairobi, France, Italy, Canada, and Ireland for weddings in recent times. So if you're looking for a photographer with personality, who will join in with the balle balle, the gidha and the garba, who will probably shed a tear when you walk down the aisle, who loves masala chai, gulab jamuns (yummy), and all things Bollywood... Call me and let's have a cuppa chaa together to talk about your beautiful Indian (or non-Indian) wedding plans! [South Yorkshire Wedding Photographer]
Hey, I’m Cris Lowis, a Documentary Wedding Photographer based in Staffordshire. I've been a wedding photographer since 2011 and over the years I've naturally found my style and passion within photography which is a love for real moments. Sure, I still do the posed shots if needed but by focusing on the story I give my clients an authentic representation of their wedding day. I'm a family man and spend my days off with my wife and two kids. We also have a dog, two cats and three chickens..yep, its a mad house. If you're looking for a photographer please do check out my website, I'd love to hear from you. [Staffordshire Wedding Photographer]
I love photographing people's stories; the real and the honest. Capturing life in all its glory is what photography is all about for me. We all have our own unique lives and being able to catch a glimpse of that - especially on a day as important as your wedding day - is one of the many wonderful things about what I do. I studied Media at university with a view to working in film. Movies are all about stories and that appealed to me. I never did break into the industry though; something far more magical caught my eye. Many of the skills and techniques I learned in film have been transferred into my wedding reportage work, and I like to think that my imagery has a certain cinematic feel to it. One of my friends got married straight out of university, and they asked me to shoot their wedding because they loved my movie work so much. I was familiar with stills photography as my father had always been a keen amateur, so I gave it a go and I fell in love. That was back in 2004, and since then I have fallen in love with wedding photography again and again. I love to travel and I'm happy to travel anywhere in the world to shoot a wedding.

RAVES, REVIEWS, AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Aaron, we cannot thank you enough! Firstly for the remarkable photos you produced of our wedding day. You knew exactly what we wanted and were fearless! You respected Josh's Grandad's wishes by being discreet and we still have some amazing photos inside the church. Your guidance throughout the day was greatly appreciated and we felt so comfortable with you. Your creativity shows in the portrait sessions during the day and also the rain didn't bother you which definitely helped to keep us relaxed. When you sent the link it brought tears to my eyes as we relived the day with the perfectly chosen music. It was great to see how our guests experienced the day. Finally we wanted to thank you for the beautiful presentation box you sent, with the extras treats inside (I was so happy to have the rest of the table names back!) Good luck for the future and your next adventure. With love, Emma & Josh x
Dear Aaron, We wanted to write to you to say a huge thank you for being part of our wedding day. We know we haven't seen the photos yet but you were so great that we didn't want to wait to thank you. You made sure we both really enjoyed the day and all our guests commented on how discreet and considerate you were. We both knew from our first FaceTime with you that we were so lucky to have you as our photographer and we really enjoyed sharing our day with you. Thank you for making our day so fun and memorable. With love from Rachael & Nick xx
Hi Aaron. We just wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you for Saturday. We loved sharing our day with you, your passion for your job, and just your sense of fun and excitement for our wedding. We feel truly blessed to have met you mate! Charlotte & Neil
Dear Aaron, We just wanted to say a big thank you for all your hard work and amazing photography skills at both our events. You took on the job with such patience and professionalism, accommodating our many requirements. We are so happy with the results and hope we can meet up in the new year, review the pictures and eat some good food. From Saijal & Mike
Hi Erika. Now that the dust has settled, I wanted to take the time to write to you and thank you for the enormous role you played on our wedding day. Words don’t seem to quite cover how we feel, but I will give it a go! We weren’t sure what to expect when booking a photographer- we both hated the idea of having a camera shoved in our face all day, posing and saying cheese. As you know, this is why we chose you and felt confident with your refreshing view to photography after we met for the first time. On the day, you were totally true to your word. You managed to capture it all, with great professionalism but unobtrusively. But for me personally, I want to say that I am so grateful for the support you showed me throughout. You kept me calm and helped me get the most from the day. I know, from the few images you showed us on the day, that I will (for once in my life!) like pictures of myself because you have captured our personality more than just how we look. Erika- quite honestly, you were a guest at our wedding first and photographer second. You were a fantastic asset to us and everything you did to look after us both during the day was so greatly appreciated. Thank you so very much. Our family and friends commented on you lots also and they totally echo our sentiments. So yeah....I think it’s important to say all these things to you, because yes- we have paid for a service. But what we got in return was an amazing extra wedding guest, a great friend and a fantastic support. Thank you
