Matt Brodie In Conversation

crack

INCONSPICUOUS. This is the word I like to use when anyone asks me to describe my approach to photographing a wedding. The dictionary definition puts it best; Modest, Quiet, not attracting attention.

• How long have you been photographing weddings?

I have been shooting weddings professionally for 7 years now.

• Where is the most interesting wedding you have photographed ?

I have had the pleasure of shooting at so many gorgeous locations, but the stand-out one would be Sorrento in Italy.

• What is included in your packages?

My packages are all inclusive from start to finish. There are no extra costs if you want to include the bridal preparation, the first dance or even fireworks at the end of the evening.

Clients are provided with all images on disc, copyright released, proof prints, a web gallery, a DVD and the choice between two different sizes of bespoke albums, which are personally designed by Matt.

• How long is your average day?

An average day can be anything between 6 and 13 hours, plus travel.

• What makes you work different from other wedding photographers?

I would say the difference is in the way that I approach the day. I see it as my job to provide a record of the wedding, that not only tells a story but also conveys the emotion and feel of the day. I shoot in a photojournalistic manner, which provides a beautiful, timeless record of the day. I don’t believe in arranging the wedding, as this then becomes the photographers idea of what the wedding should look like, rather than how it really is.
