Why Matthew Rycraft?

Photography & art has been in my family for 3 generations.  I was using a camera at a very young age & haven’t had one out of my sight since.  This passion shines through to your wedding photographs where I create pieces of artwork to be passed down generations.  I’m relaxed & professional throughout your wedding day.  Photographing a balance of natural & directed moments.  This makes sure everything is captured authentically & perfectly, you’ll barely notice I’m there.


Award Winner

WINNER of Wedding of the Year 3 years in a row from 2015-2017, over 10 wedding magazine front covers & 4 Print Photography & International Awards. In 2016 was chosen as a Phottix UK Ambassador which was a major achievement in my career, along with working with paper manufacturer PermaJet in 2019 after winning 3 Print Awards in London. All a testament to the quality of wedding photographs produced.  I exclusively only cover 40 weddings a year & educate other photographers across the UK, North West, Cheshire & Liverpool in between these wedding dates.  I’d love to chat weddings with you, feel free to pop into our Southport Studio for a glass of bubbly or beer anytime.

Style & Experience

Modern, Striking & Naturally Storytelling… My fundamentals used for every wedding photograph captured. I prefer to blend into the background photographing natural moments of you & your guests laughing, giggling, smiling & most of all having lots of fun. Of course I capture the timeless wedding photographs of your family & bridal party, but with a modern & natural twist.  Balancing this with photo sessions with the bride & groom producing my all inspiring signature images & creating high class imagery.

I’ve shot over 500 weddings, hundreds as a Liverpool wedding photographer, so you can be assured that I have the experience to handle anything your wedding day throws at me.  Years of experience have taught me to capture the moment at just the right time, so it’s now instinctive.  Together we customise your last & most important wedding gift, your wedding album.  Seeing your reaction when you view your wedding album for the first time is the ultimate feeling of gratification.
