Hi there!

I'm Marius and I'm a professional wedding, event and portrait photographer. My style goes somewhere in between classic and documentary able to capture both those blink of an eye special moments you will cherish forever, but also the classical, orchestrated photographs that you will love to print and frame for your family.

I am based in Canterbury, a city I love for it's contrast between the medieval architecture and fresh student vibe, a city of which streets I love walking early on a spring morning, but also on a Saturday afternoon when you can really feel that fresh city buzz.

As a full time professional photographer, I seek to offer the most creative and genuine imagery possible while capturing the best moments of your event that will bring a smile on your face every single time. My focus is to capture those genuine candid moments of joy, happiness and laughter of your special day being always present, but never in the way of your event.

I love photographing weddings because there is no better chapter in life than that of two souls celebrating the start of their unique journey towards happiness. All this is done in a unobtrusive, photo-journalistic style while retaining an artistic and natural approach. I chose this mix of styles because i find that it lets people unwind and feel relaxed while helping me capture those discreet moments that otherwise would pass unnoticed. 

I inherited my love for photography when I was just a child from my father, helping him in the darkroom and being his mini assistant at countless weddings. Years later, after fulfilling a career in IT and marketing I decided to pursuit a fine art degree in photography here in Canterbury where I still live and work. My life and my many passions derive and are intertwined with photography; from trekking and travelling the world to food, festivals, wild birds and animals.

Thank you for dropping by and if my style is what you're looking be it a wedding, portrait session or any other celebration drop me a line. I'd love to hear about it!
If we're a match we then can meet over a coffee to go into the details. Don't forget, I'm paying! 

 

With the best regards,

Marius Matis
