Thank you for visiting.

I am an award winning wedding photographer based in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire working across the UK. I photograph weddings across the UK From Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire, Cheshire and Lincolnshire - as well as working closer to home in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Suffolk, Surrey and Hampshire.  So wherever you're getting married, I'd love to hear from you. I love my job, photography has been my hobby and my passion for as long as I can remember and I am now so lucky I can call this my career.

My mission is simple - to let you enjoy your day. No endless posing, nothing cheesy, nothing forced or staged. Just you, your family and friends enjoying the best day ever. I approach your day in an unobtrusive style. Nothing staged or posed. I want you to forget about me and focus on the moment.

Plan your day, not plan your photographs. You won't be performing for the camera. I will fit in with your plans and you won't spend the day worrying about staging or organising photographs. Instead, my approach allows you to simply enjoy the day with family and friends.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

American photographer, Aaron Siskind. 

 

Why is photography so important?

Life is made up of moments, they flow from one to another. Time is ever changing and we cannot halt its relentless march. I think my love of photography stems from its unique ability to freeze time. If it wasn't for a photograph that moment would, in many ways, be gone, lost forever. Yes we hold memories in our hearts and heads but can anything truly capture a moment in time like a photograph?

Why invest in photography?

You invest in a wedding day. It is such an important and beautiful day. By investing in quality wedding photography you are investing in memories. My approach to wedding photography is to search for those unique moments, the smiles, laughs, hugs and expressions. I also aim to capture the details of the day that you have spent so long planning. This all combines to create a unique and personal record of your day. You will receive a gallery and slide show of hundreds of cherished moments. I try to align telling a story whilst capturing the beauty and art of your day.

A little about me

Matt Godman Wedding Photography.jpg

I have been photographing weddings for over 10 years based in, Hertfordshire,  but work all over the UK.  I live in Hertfordshire with my wife and two children, having previously lived in London. I love the outdoors and try to bring this into my photographic work when I can.  I love to explore the hills and mountains of the UK and love the opportunity wedding photography gives me to travel.  I have family ties to Yorkshire, so I am happy working anywhere in the country. 

My philosophy is simple - I want you to focus on your wedding day, not posing for photographs. I aim to simply photograph natural moments, beautifully.
