Hello, we’re Patrick and Matt – founders of M and G Photographic. With a real passion for what we do, M and G was established in 2013, and we haven’t looked back. Allowing moments to happen rather than trying to create them, we pride ourselves on creating honest and genuine photography and films, capturing real emotion, whether that’s humour, laughter or love.
Although our main base is in Yorkshire, living at opposite ends of the country in East Yorkshire and Hertfordshire means that we are conveniently placed to cover weddings across the whole of the UK. Yorkshire, Cheshire, The Lake District, Surrey, Hertfordshire, Hampshire and Lincolnshire are all regular destinations for us - not to mention Scotland and Wales. We would love the opportunity to discuss your wedding plans with you and you can contact us here. So, take a look around our website and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or would like to enquire about our availability.
When we say we have a passion for what we do, we really mean it. This isn’t a hobby to us, it wasn't a sudden career move after been given our first camera. This is us doing what we’ve always wanted to do. We’ve been to hundreds of weddings and every single one has been unique. We’re personally invested in every wedding we attend and feel the utmost privilege that couples allow us to be part of one of the biggest days of their lives. Your wedding is about you and your guests – not the photographer. At times you’ll forget we’re there, but we’ll be working in the background to unobtrusively capture all the key moments and little details of your day.
We started photographing weddings ten years ago seperately after studying fine art photography, then in 2013 we joined together. Over the years, as our business has grown and we have expanded our team to include Hollie and Chris plus a dedicated wedding videographer. We have now photographed more than 400 in total and filmed well over 100. We are proud of our testimonials and reviews and you read can a sample of these here.
Our team of four photographers means we can photograph two weddings in one day at different ends of the country. All our photographers have the same natural style and use the same techniques. Unlike some photography companies, we never contract out our weddings - if you book with us, your lead photographer will be Matt, Patrick or Chris and you will have the opportunity to meet them at your free pre wedding shoot. Offering this chance for you to get to know us is really important. Read about our free pre wedding shoot offer on our packages page here.
Patrick and Hollie are a husband and wife team and based in East Yorkshire, Matt is based in Hertfordshire and Chris is based in Hull. Location doesn't matter though - it's not unusual for Patrick to be in the Lake District and Chris to be in the New Forest on the same day, then Matt to be at a wedding in Cheshire the next day - or we could all be photographing a wedding in Hertfordshire together on one day. We love the variety this brings!
