Yorkshire Wedding Photographer & Family Photographer

Multi Award-Winning Documentary Style wedding Photography – Capturing Moments, Memories & Emotion

Welcome to Kirsty Mattsson Photography. I’m a documentary-style Yorkshire wedding photographer and family portrait photographer working primarily throughout Yorkshire, Derbyshire and Cumbria, but also venturing further afield to cover family portraits and weddings across the UK and abroad. I photograph all kinds of weddings, from small, intimate celebrations to large-scale, elaborate events. If you are planning your big day I’d love to hear from you!

Authentic Natural Wedding/Family Photography & Creative Storytelling

My family portrait and wedding photography style is primarily documentary which means natural and unobtrusive. I’m not interested in posing people and I won’t ask for fake grins! I have a very hands-off approach to capturing the unique moments, fun and emotion of your day. I’ll also offer some gentle direction in a very natural way for a few creative, high-impact wedding portraits, incorporating beautiful light, colour and scenery. I’m a Yorkshire wedding photographer that loves the scenery in this area and will happily incorporate rugged sweeping moorlands and dramatic Yorkshire views into my portrait and wedding  photography.

Best wedding photography 2019/2020

A selection of my favourite wedding images from 2019/2020. Thanks to all my lovely couples who were absolutely brilliant to work with and for choosing me as your wedding photographer. It was hard to select from so many great weddings but here are my personal favourite images from 2019 and a few from 2020 (unfortunately because of Covid I didn’t get to photograph as many weddings as I would have liked in 2020 but role on 2021 when hopefully weddings will be back on track!). I’ve chosen the images for various reasons; they may have an interesting composition, unusual or amusing content, or have a strong emotional impact.
