Yorkshire – Hertfordshire – Worldwide
Hi, we are M and G Photographic. We absolutely love our job – we photograph weddings without staging or posing all in our own artistic and creative style. We are known for capturing real moments, beautifully. Since 2013 we have been documenting weddings all over the UK and abroad and have won many awards for our work. Recently we won our most prestigious award yet: we were regional winners of the 2020 Best Wedding Photographer award at the The Wedding Industry Awards (we are still on cloud 9 after winning!) We have two bases: one in Hertfordshire and one in Yorkshire. Having two bases is a real plus – we can photograph a wedding anywhere in the UK and never be too far from home. You can meet us below – or you can read about our packages here. If you’d like to check if we are available to photograph your wedding day, please get in touch. We’d love to hear about your plans!
Patrick and Hollie Mateer – Award Winning Wedding Photographers
Hi we’re Patrick and Hollie and we live in Cottingham, East Yorkshire. We have photographed weddings from Manchester to Montenegro, from The Lake District to Loch Lomond, from Derbyshire to Devon – just to name a few locations! Patrick loves films, Indian food and playing guitar, Hollie loves flowers, crafts and everything creative. We love spending time with each other and our young family (and building monuments out of Lego!) That’s an image us on our own wedding day above – just the happiest day of our lives! To ensure you receive the best service and best images possible, we can only photograph a maximum of 40 weddings each wedding season – we book up quickly every single year. Please do get in touch now if you’d like to see if we are free on your wedding date.
Matt Godman – Award Winning Wedding Photographer
Hi I’m Matt, I live in Berkhamsted in Hertfordshire. I love running, mountains (and running up mountains), art and sushi (well just about any food really!) I love spending all the time I can with my beautiful family. That’s a photograph of me above, snapped while I was capturing a beautiful wedding at the Yorkshire Wedding Barn, just one of hundreds of venues I have shot at over the years. If you book me to photograph your wedding, I will look forward to meeting you at your pre-wedding consultation.
Beautiful wedding videography
Then of course there’s Josh – our filmmaker. We are unique in that as a team of 4, we can easily meet the needs of even the biggest and most ambitious wedding plans – if you need 3 photographers and a filmmaker, we can provide that for you. Josh is a specialist filmmaker, meaning if you book us to film your day, we use one one of our own full time team members to film it for you – Josh really is amazing at what he does. You can meet the team below.
Yorkshire Wedding Photography – Hertfordshire Wedding Photography – covering the globe
From our Yorkshire and Hertfordshire bases we all cover weddings right across the UK and Europe, providing one, two or sometimes even three photographers. Every wedding is different so we are happy to provide whatever is needed. We often class ourselves as M and G Photographic Yorkshire Wedding Photographer. However though Yorkshire may be our main base, from Yorkshire and Hertfordshire we travel the whole of the UK and abroad.
Don’t get posed – get married!
We all document weddings naturally, without posing. We have all won awards for our work and we all love what we do. Since 2013 our business has grown and grown into the award winning team it is today – we work alongside Josh, who shoots weddings exclusively for us and allow us to offer not just photography, but video as well. This means you can book your photography and video through one company, making things easy for you and ensuring the style of your photographs and video matches perfectly.
Beautiful and timeless images
We produce beautiful images by capturing moments authentically, without staging things or posing you. We tell all our couples: have the best day ever and forget we’re there. It really is as simple and relaxed as that! Then, when you re-live your day through our images, you’ll see your day as it really happened – you won’t see cheesy or awkward poses or staged moments.
Real moments and real memories
We love smiles and real emotions. What is key to us is that every wedding is unique and our images will reflect your day as it really happened and show your personalities as we let you be yourselves. There is no template or set pattern for our images and this is why we love our job, meeting new people and travelling to new places while all the time taking the most creative, unique and beautiful images.
It’s your day – not ours!
Lastly, we are not traditional photographers – there will be no standing in a line for hours taking endless group shots which not only uses up your time but also your guests as well. Even if you choose to have a few group photographs, these will never take over your day.
We love what we do
Most importantly, we do this job because we love wedding photography: there is no better feeling for us than being able to deliver images to our couples that capture real memories that will be treasured and loved for a lifetime.
If you love our award winning wedding photography and the sound of relaxed way of working, it would be great to hear all about your wedding plans. Contact us here to check our availability for your day.
