Day 2 of the ‘1 photo a day challenge’. This is a sparrow hawk circling over the in-laws. A beautiful bird but it was daunting looking through the view finder as the magnification from the lens makes it looks huge and appear as if it is right next to you!

Our passion and ability is reflected in the images you see throughout our website, also, take a look at our reviews pages to understand what it would be like for you to have us look after your wedding photos. We cover much of the local area and also frequently travel to offer our wedding photography in Somerset, Dorset, Bristol, Bath, Wiltshire and Devon. We have worked for clients from London, Yorkshire and across the UK.

Technical skills are an important part of a camera man’s repertoire. A wedding is a place full of emotions; tiny moments that truly reflect how people felt. Being able to capture the nuances, the glances, the facial expressions without intruding is key. Lighting at a wedding can sometimes prove a challenge. Without using a direct flash, I like to make the most of available light, complimenting the subject. Using shade and also bouncing light of walls can produce a better effect, creating contrast and an overall better mood.

Most importantly, it is what you want for your wedding. If you speak with your photographer, tell them what it is you require and how you want to have your photos taken; they should have the experience and skills necessary to get the most for your special day. Contact me today to have an informal chat; I’m happy to talk about any ideas you might have.

Another wedding season comes to an end

Affordable wedding photography

As another wedding season comes to a close, with 25000 photos taken and Photoshopped it has been a very successful few months at Matthew Sims Wedding Photography. The team and I have covered many miles and even got to do our first wedding abroad, well, only just over the border in Wales at the impressive Celtic Manor Resort. We got to shoot in the Presidential suite just a week after President Obama stayed at the resort. (I wonder if using the words ‘shoot’ and ‘President Obama’ will get my website on the FBI’s watch list?). Of the many highlights of the season multiple visits to Orchardleigh House, Holbrook House and St Audreys Park along with a few new venues including Staplegrove Church in Taunton and The Egypt Mill.
