At a recent family event, I was told that it was common place in the 1950s and 60s to have photographers knock on your door to see if you fancy an impromptu family portrait session. It's a bit different now in our image saturated on line world, so for this testimonial section I've tried to address the key questions when looking for a photographer; why Me & I Photography, what was it like and what has been the response to the images.
With a park round the corner, football and hide and seek still to play, it was a great Autumn afternoon with...
The Rami Family
Why did you choose Me & I Photography?
We wanted some photos of our family that were natural and 'real' - so they didn't look staged or 'set up'. We saw the photography Matt had done for other families and though it was just what we wanted.
What prompted the shoot ?
We wanted a good set of family photos to choose from as gifts for family at Christmas, and also to put up at home.
Where did your shoot take place?
In the local park.
What was it like to be a part of?
Great fun - Matt is a natural 'people person' and great with children - in fact one of the children asked if Matt could 'come round to play' every Sunday afternoon!
How would you describe the images produced from your shoot?
Stunning - we couldn't believe how Matt had managed to capture us all looking so natural, but also like photos from a magazine.
What are your 2 favourite photos?
What has been the reaction of others to the images?
Everyone has been amazed - especially that Matt could get so many good images in only one shoot.
Could you sum up the experience and would you recommend it to others?
A great experience - brilliant photos that make me smile every time I look at them - I would highly recommend Matt, his approach and his skill.
