Matt Davis is an documentary photographer based in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire.
"Documentary wedding photography isn’t a simple headshot of a guest laughing, but a skill you acquire over time. I follow the action, anticipate a moment, look for the most flattering of light and consider the best composition before capturing an image. You will no doubt be too nervous to look around whilst at the alter making your vows, yet this point in your wedding day is the part that passes you by fastest. What were the expression on guests faces as you entered the church? Did the groom look around as you walked down the aisle? You’ll not even remember where anyone was sitting, which is why the photos that you don’t necessarily ask me to take, are the ones that often become more poignant afterwards. A picture paints a thousand words."

Matt is a brilliant photographer! He managed to blend into the background when needed, gather and arrange people for photos when necessary and give us all the photos from our wedding we could've wished for. He had us laughing more than once, but also let us have some time to ourselves, so that we have those natural photos too.

We are so happy with the photos Matt took of our wedding! When we were looking for a wedding photographer, we were drawn to Matt's style after looking at his portfolio, and his familiarity with our venue, Berkeley Castle, meant that he was the perfect choice to be our wedding photographer. He was responsive to our queries, listened to what we wanted, and adapted easily when things didn't quite go to plan on the day! Our friends and family love the photos, too. Thank you, Matt!

We booked Matt after seeing his gorgeous photos at my sister in laws wedding. He managed to capture some truly unscripted moments. He was friendly and tried to make us laugh for even better photos. He knew where to put us to put us in some really flattering lighting. I was so pleased as to how gorgeous the final photos were. All our communication was done by email since we live in another country, but he was professional and kept us updated every step of the way. My only regret of my wedding day is I should have asked for more formal group shots, my advice don't skimp on the group shots!
