LOVE STORIES | TRAVEL | EDUCATION | CONSERVATION
Matthew has spent his entire life as an artist. Growing up in the UK, his family, who has a history of artistic talent, encouraged him to explore his creativity from an early age. As a result, he quickly developed a passion for photography, picking up his first film camera aged 5. After studying art, Matthew set his sights on travel and documentary photography.
In the 25 years that followed his formal art education, Matthew worked and photographed in over 45 countries worldwide. From photographing tall ships on the North Sea to the Jackaroos of the Australian South West to the Mahouts of Thailand, working with rescued Elephants.
His street and conservation documentary soon became his signature style. Beautifully editorial work, which portrays a real depth and meaning to the viewer. In 2008 Matthew & his wife Julia started dreaming about how they could bring this unique story-telling approach to weddings.
In 2009, the FITZPATRICKs made their dream of starting FITZPATRICK photography a reality. They have since documented the wedding stories of hundreds of amazing couples in the UK and abroad. Their love for wildlife conservation and exploration remains a shared passion.

"Matthew is a fantastic friendly photographer. I really don't know where to start with this review. From start to finish him and Julia were amazing.
Me and my husband felt so relaxed with Mat and Julia. They felt like part of our wedding guests they were that friendly. The photos taken were all relaxed and did not feel like having a photoshoot at all. They captured every single second of our day"
