My now husband, Daniel and I hired Matt as our wedding photographer on the back of a recommendation from a friend of ours. From our first interaction with Matt, we found him to be friendly, laidback yet professional, and he instantly understood the look and feel we were wanting in our wedding photos. Each time we spoke to Matt before the wedding he was enthusiastic, professional and made us feel relaxed and at ease. His quote was incredibly reasonable and more than competitive when compared to other wedding photographers. Matt was there for the entire duration of our wedding (from getting ready to goodbye’s after the reception) and we could not have been more happy with everything he did on the day. He thought very creatively about our posed photos and picked out beautiful and interesting locations for our couple photos. When it came time to photographing the ceremony, he was discrete and professional, and we barely noticed he was there (all the while he was capturing beautiful images). Many of our guests commented on how friendly and considerate Matt was and he was never intrusive or inappropriate. After our wedding, Matt had all of the images ready for us by the time we came back from our honeymoon (four weeks later) and we were incredibly impressed with the quality and quantity of the photographs. Matt captured the mood and atmosphere, as well as many special little moments of our wedding so well. Each image is beautiful and is something that we will treasure forever. We couldn’t have been more pleased with Matt and the photos that he produced for us. We would recommend Matt in a heartbeat and hope that we get the chance to work with him again in the future.

Hi Matt,

Just a note to say Thank you so much for making our day extra special.

If you’re looking for a wedding photographer that is both professional but relaxed, Matt is definitely your man.

My husband and I wanted a very relaxed wedding day with no stress and no set plans or poses for our wedding pics, but still wanted every special moment caught with no set ups earlier etc., that’s where I think Matt was fantastic!  Not only did he stay all night, he just went with the flow making my new hubby and I feel at ease as we aren’t big photo people. He captured some truly beautiful moments that I would not have even dreamed he was watching in the background.  One picture in particular of my nan (now passed) and I, is my absolute favourite of us sharing a very private moment. Now we just have to choose which Pictures to put into an album… a very hard task when there are sooooo many great shots.

Thank you again so much Matt & Marianne for making our special day even better. You and Marianne make a great team and your relaxed natures helped put us in the perfect mood for our Big day.  XXXX

Matt, thank you so much for photographing our wedding! The pictures are wonderful and you captured the day perfectly. They're casual, creative and a bit silly, basically us in a nutshell. 

With the biggest thanks and kindest regards, The Whalens

"We would both like to thank you so much for your amazing work on our wedding day! You have captured all of our amazing moments through out the day, and the fact that you were so happy to be there till the end of the night, made it all the more special. You caught the moments as they happened! Also your quick turn around of our images was excellent, we certainly did not have to wait long! From the time we first met you, to our engagement shoot, to the most important day of our life, your relaxed attitude ensured you captured very natural shots of us both. Working together with you and your wife was an absolute pleasure and nothing was too much trouble for either of you. You blended in so well with our guests during our reception, and so many of our guests commented on how friendly you were during the evening - We even had a couple ask if you were good friends of ours. 

Thanks again, and best wishes. Kristin & Brent"

Our wedding planning started when we fell in love with our venue Yandina Station. We stumbled upon a photo from a previous wedding that Matt had recently shot there and then got in contact with him to organise a casual meeting to find out a bit more information about his work, personality and to see if he was the right fit for our wedding. From the moment we sat down with him, we both knew Matt would be the one to shoot our wedding. Matt's passion to his photography is second to none. He wanted to understand every little detail of our love story and you could just see his mind ticking over as to the potential shots he may get! Matt's personality is very rare to come across these days. He is the most genuine guy, who only wants to produce top shelf material. He is outgoing, enthusiastic and the passion for photography really shines through.

Before the wedding, we caught up with Matt to do an E-shoot. This was a really fantastic opportunity for us to get familiar with Matt, as well as in front of the camera. He made us feel at ease the whole way through, and we loved the photos he produced.

When it came to the day of the wedding he was there from when the girls were getting ready early in the morning, right through to when the guests left the reception. Matt captured shots that just blew us away. Every little detail was taken into consideration. We had so many comments on how professional and sneaky (in a good way!) he was in capturing those special moments. Not long after the wedding we received all our incredible photos and a breathtaking album of our special day.

We cannot thank Matt enough for all his hard work, beautiful shots and lasting memories that we will never forget.

Mr & Mrs Carrigan
