Authentic. Candid. Beautiful. Your story – artfully captured.

I’m a Cairns wedding photographer with over 10 years experience, covering: Palm Cove, Port Douglas, Mission Beach and the Atherton Tablelands.

I shoot in a candid style for most of the day, trying my best to capture the wedding as it happens with all of it’s emotions. I’ll pose people when needed, but in a natural way. Every wedding is different, so I’m constantly adapting where needed.

I deliver your images super quick, generally between 2-4 weeks, depending on the time of year. No one likes waiting months for their wedding photos!

If you like my style, contact me. I’d love to catch up and talk about your wedding and ideas.


I live in the Tropical North Queensland city of Cairns with my beautiful wife Alisha, our new son Elijah and our two Chihuahuas; Dizmo and Manuel. We LOVE it up here! Where it all started… When I was 10 years old my very wise mum gave me her late 70’s Canon AE-1, which successfully planted the seed.

12 years. I can’t believe it’s been that long now!

I live in Cairns and mostly shoot weddings in Port Douglas, Palm Cove, Mission Beach and the Tablelands. I love to travel though and take every opportunity to do so for weddings.

I change system a lot. This is expensive, but I always want to be using the best equipment for photographing weddings. I currently use the Sony A9 because it’s silent and never misses focus.

I shoot in a candid style for most of the day, trying my best to capture the wedding as it happens with all of it’s emotions. I’ll pose people when needed, but in a natural way. Every wedding is different, so I’m constantly adapting where needed.

The most popular time of year for weddings is April-November. December-March is great for family shoots and engagement shoots.

I take thousands, but only so I can pick the very best. I deliver around 100 images per hour of coverage.

Early in the year I’ll deliver your photos within 2-3 weeks, later in the year closer to 4-5 weeks.

I shoot alone, but I still capture everything. I’ve never found a 2nd shooter to be necessary!

Most of the couples I shoot are camera shy till they realise my style. Once you start a photo session with me you’ll find it super easy.

I have options for short coverage all the way up to full day. I find that for an elopement 2-3 hours is perfect. For a small wedding you might want to skip on the reception coverage if it’s just a simple dinner. Reception coverage is worthwhile if you have speeches and dancing.

I’m a strong believer in this, not so people don’t get in my way, but to make sure people are paying attention without distractions.

Matt was absolutely amazing and I cannot recommend him enough. Photography was one of the priorities for our wedding - we wanted to feel confident that we would have beautiful shots of our day to look back on for years to come. We asked Matt to do our engagement shoot as well, and his easy going nature, clear directions and artistic eye confirmed that he was an expert in his field. The photos are exquisite. My partner and I aren't overly photogenic, but you'd never know that from seeing Matt's work. The quality of image is excellent and the editing is just right. He also delivered the photos so quickly, which is amazing considering the sheer number of photos he would have to sift through. He is also well-connected within the wedding industry and personally knew many of our vendors. Worth every penny! Thank you Matt!!

We knew we wanted matt to capture our wedding from the moment we first met with matt. He’s easy going, chilled vibe is the energy we knew we’d need around us on our day! Bouncing ideas around was fun and nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend Matts services to anyone!
