Good to meet you…
We love photography. For many years it filled what spare time we had whilst working as a nurse (Matt), and in social care (Kizzy) in London. Our work in care has long connected us to people, their stories, their emotions – and what a life-changing moment truly means.
These are the elements we harness and capture in our photography; elements that you will want to keep forever in the images we create with you. Take a look at our collections to see for yourself.
On this page we want to tell you about us, so here’s a snapshot of our loves and dislikes, outside of wedding photography (which we love best of all):
… a Cornishman who has lived in London more than half his life, and who was a nurse for a long time, but switched to become a full-time wedding photographer, a career move that, despite missing his patients, he is delighted to have made.
When Matt is not having a whale of a time shooting weddings, and making friends with brides and grooms to be, he loves wildlife photography;
coffee; all rich, sweet and unhealthy foods; The Simpsons; Everton football club (although he is very happy to shoot the weddings of Liverpool FC supporters); dogs; his cat Jimmy; books about history; and Thailand.
On the other hand, Matt is not keen on people who stand on the ‘walk’ side of the escalator; romantic ‘comedies’; supermarkets; junk mail; and tube journeys (a wholly terrifying nightmare he avoids like the plague).
… a London girl who was a social worker working with young people and kids, before inserting herself beautifully into Matt Bolton Photography, creating Matt & Kizzy Wedding Photography.
When she is not miraculously resolving posing details that Matt sometimes misses, and generally being awesome behind the camera at weddings, she loves watching NCIS; spreadsheets
(which is great because Matt is scared of them); chips (the fried potato variety, not the awesome eighties cop show); travel; and spending eye exploding amounts of money on expensive Japanese diaries (Hobonichi anyone?)
It’s not an easy thing to come up with anything that annoys her as she is such a delightful person, but the extremely short list includes shoes in the hallway; the baffling absence of orderly bus queues in a country obsessed with queueing; and milky tea.
… a happily married couple who remember our wedding day like it was yesterday. It was literally flawless and something that encourages us to create wonderful memories for other brides and grooms.
We believe deeply in love and friendship, and feel profoundly lucky to be included in some way in the union of others on their wedding days. It is a privilege we are enormously grateful for, and work passionately to excel in.
We love what we do. We think of shooting a wedding as a collaboration between us and our couples to create something beautiful; something that you can cherish deeply.
We’d love to hear from you
