Natural, documentary style photography / video. Specialising in Events, Weddings, Corporate and Music. M&G Photographic are Patrick Mateer & Matthew Godman – two experienced photographers. Both have worked for over seven years in wedding photography – Patrick is based in East Yorkshire and Matthew lives in London. Having two bases enables M&G to cover a large area of the UK at short notice.
Have been friends for 15 years and working together on photographic projects for around the same amount of time, they have a very relaxed way of working together (Matthew photographed Patrick’s wedding), as they explain below. Our approach to photography and video is always professional, but we also make sure we work in a relaxed way. Our aim is to capture natural moments in an unobtrusive way, as simply, we believe this gives you the best images. In wedding photography (though it sounds cliched and cheesy!) each couple is different and every wedding is different. So it’s really important for us to meet up with you at the venue before your wedding or event to talk through every key moment and every fine detail. We want our photography to be an enjoyable part of your day but never to be intrusive. Importantly, we agree start and end points – not times – to allow you to focus on having fun and enjoying the moment.
We believe this flexibility is key for event and wedding photography as things often don’t run to the set times! We specialise in natural, documentary style photography to tell the story of your day – but we are also very experienced in providing a range of more traditional, formal photographs. We know picking your wedding photographer is a big decision – and we are happy to meet up for an informal chat over a cup of tea or coffee, to allow you to talk through your plans and see more examples of our work.
For our all day packages we also offer a free engagement shoot – this gives you the opportunity to get to know us a bit better, how we work and start to feel comfortable in front of the lens. We know being photographed is not top of everyone's to do list! That’s why we work with you to make sure you feel relaxed and comfortable with us before your big day arrives”. Patrick & Matthew
