We were absolutely thrilled with the photos Kirsty took on our wedding day and really loved working with her. From the initial phone conversation we knew she would be brilliant, and we never stopped thinking that, from the trial engagement photo shoot through to her correspondence with us after the wedding. On the day itself, Kirsty made all involved laugh and feel at ease while also being really clear about what would make the best shot; the result is a collection of really natural, stunning images which we keep poring over in delight. We would love to work with her again and recommend her absolutely wholeheartedly. She’s a gem!

Kirsty is lovely to work with. She is so full of enthusiasm, you can really tell she loves what she does, which enables her to capture such amazing wedding photographs. Our experience on the day was simply excellent and we couldn’t have asked for more. Kirsty really put her heart and soul into capturing the perfect images. We both loved our wedding photos when we saw them for the first time. I even said to my new husband, “wow is that really us? We look like the people you see in magazines!” Her photography skills are one of a kind and we would highly recommend Kirsty to anyone. We are so pleased with our photos we cannot fault a thing.

Kirsty is really fun to work with. She is very professional and she made the experience of having our wedding photographs taken very low stress, which meant we were able to relax and have fun in her company. She was very unobtrusive throughout the day but was there when we needed her for those special shots. We also loved seeing all the candid moments she captured, some of which we did not even know happened on the day! The images are stunning and edited beautifully and exactly in the style that we were looking for, they tell a beautiful cohesive story of our wedding day.

My family (husband, two boisterous boys aged 6 and 10 and myself) booked a photo shoot with Kirsty. From initial contact she was nothing but professional and friendly. She made suggestions for our family photoshoot regarding location, clothing etc. but still made it our shoot and it was an amazing experience. Kirsty put my boys at ease, taking pictures of them on play equipment, climbing trees, running around, all the things boys love doing and the pictures were astounding. The family shots we have of us together are natural, not at all posed, and are more than I could have dreamed of. I have had nothing but positive feedback from friends I have shown them to and would not hesitate to recommend Kirsty to any of them. If a natural, creative family photo shoot is what you are wanting then Kirsty Mattsson is definitely who you should be booking without hesitation.

We were 100% confident that we were going to get some great images due to how good we knew Kirsty is as a wedding photographer. The results were fantastic and we couldn’t be happier showing off our fabulous photos with our family and friends. Kirsty was very thorough during the whole process and explained all of the details for us. The most impressive thing was the work that Kirsty put in post wedding spending hours ensuring that we got the exact wedding album design that we wanted. The album is amazing along with the parent albums, they are so professional and finished to the highest quality.

We met Kirsty at a wedding fair in Harrogate, she was very friendly and professional from the start and shortly after seeing her work we decided to book her for our upcoming wedding and never regretted it.
On the day, Kirsty arrived even earlier than arranged, stayed late and she worked very hard to capture the best images of us and our guests.
We love looking back at our stunning photos and all of our family and friends have commented on what great images she took. We are grateful to have the wonderful moments from our big day captured so beautifully and would have no hesitation in recommending Kirsty to anyone.
Laura & Andrew
As a family, we don’t usually do photos but we couldn’t miss this opportunity. Kirsty was great in making us feel at ease and accommodated our wishes in wanting an informal setting where all the family would feel comfortable. Kirsty hit it off straight away with the children and even when the smiles didn’t come with the little one straight away we didn’t feel rushed and she was versatile and willing to work with us to get the shots we really wanted. We are thrilled with the end results and can’t believe that there are so many great ones, how ever will we choose and there are even good ones of me and that is a first!! Thanks so much.

Thank you Kirsty for taking such wonderful photos! You really captured the vintage style of our wedding day perfectly and tailored the photography to fit our personalities. You really made us feel at ease and you worked hard to make sure you didn’t miss a thing. These photos are the perfect way to remember our day! Thank you again!
Charlotte & Lee
We love the photos! We can’t stop looking at them and all our friends and family say the same. We especially like the way you have captured us looking so natural. You made us feel completely at ease, which if you are not used to having your photo taken can be a bit of a struggle. You completely got rid of any camera shyness. Thanks so much for all your hard work and for helping make the day really special.

Kirsty was extremely accommodating in finding the time to talk with us right from the outset and we felt comfortable with her, laughing and joking together; this was to set the scene for our day together. We didn’t want any ‘cheesy’ photographs and we were a bit worried about spending too much time being photographed and missing out on the fun of our wedding day. Kirsty took on board all of our concerns and ensured that everything would be ok.
Kirsty arrived on the morning of the wedding and instantly fitted in. She had a clear idea of how, where, when and who she would photograph, injecting fun and laughter into every opportunity. Within a fortnight she sent us a link to view our pictures, a beautifully written blog and discussions on how to organise our album. Our photographs were the BEST documentary of our day, from bridal party pictures to captured moments and details, Kirsty photographed it all. All I can say is…. Kirsty was everything and more that we had hoped for, we truly cannot recommend her enough. Lots of love Mary and Nige xxx

Kirsty photographed my children for me in several informal outdoor settings of my choice. The children were completely at ease in Kirsty’s presence and enjoyed being her models, as she made them laugh and was very patient and relaxed with them. Often they did not even notice she was there and as a result many of the photos are very natural and candid. Kirsty has excellent equipment, which she uses to great effect. Overall I was very impressed with her unique service and would recommend her to anyone.

Kirsty photographed myself and my daughter on-location in a local park and I have to say that the images are absolutely stunning. She really made us feel at ease with the photography and captured a wonderful variety of shots. The images are very natural and she really captured our personalities in a very honest yet creative way. I would highly recommend Kirsty to anyone looking for very high quality, stunning images of their families.

We had a very small city centre wedding in Leeds, and Kirsty completely understood what we were after. Authoritative with a keen eye, we were extremely pleased with her service on the day and even more pleased with the fantastic end products that were sent to us within a fortnight. We loved working with Kirsty and would be very quick to recommend her.
Casey & Enya
The photos Kirsty took of our family are the best we have ever seen. The quality of the photos is outstanding. We gave many of our family and friends prints of the images for Christmas and everyone commented on how lovely they are. We were delighted with the service, anyone who chooses Kirsty will only have one problem, they will want all the images! They were so good we found it difficult to choose.

Kirsty was exactly what we wanted from a photographer for our wedding. Neither of us enjoy posing for photos, so the pre wedding photo shoot was a great way to put us at ease and was great fun. We felt it also helped Kirsty understand what our wedding was all about. Whilst we wanted a few necessary posed photos, our main aim was that the photos would document the day for us, in particular capturing lots of natural shots of our guests. We love the photos. Kirsty has captured lots of happy, smiling faces and she also took the time to take photos of the details that we had spent so much time on. At the church she took some lovely photos but at no point were we really aware of her or her assistant being there. I would wholeheartedly recommend her!

We approached Kirsty at a wedding fair after liking the style of her photos on display – her journalistic, natural style really appealed to us as we didn’t want forced or overly posed photographs and wanted to capture our special day as it happened. Kirsty set us at ease from the very beginning and we knew that her confidence and experience would come in very handy on the day when dealing with over 100 guests. We didn’t know what to expect from the pre-wedding shoot but we’re really glad to have had the opportunity to spend time with Kirsty before the wedding and to get used to being in front of the camera. It definitely helped to make us feel more relaxed on the day. We brought our dog Buster along to the pre-wedding shoot and Kirsty was great with him too, capturing some lovely shots of him in action.
The photographs Kirsty took of our big day are just fantastic and we never get tired of looking at them (and showing them to people!). We had an Autumn wedding and Kirsty’s photos really bring out the vibrant orange and blue colours from our theme. The only problem is choosing which photos to print, which is not an easy task when you have over 850 photos of outstanding quality to choose from! Kirsty was the only photographer we considered and we couldn’t be happier that we chose her to capture our special day. We would recommend Kirsty to anyone wanting a down to earth, fun, friendly and professional photographer to produce some stunning photographs, whatever the occasion.
Becca & Ryan
Both ourselves and our friends and family were thrilled with the whole process of Kirsty being our photographer for our special day. With a keen eye for detail and an aim to capture every moment of the day, she was also not afraid to try out different things within the surroundings. We feel Kirsty immersed herself into the ceremony, reception and every part of the day, whilst involving every single one of our guests. Countless people have commented on how stunning the photos look – we are all so impressed with the quality, variety and amount of photos. There isn’t too much of one image, they all tell a story and you can see the fun, love, passion and laughter throughout. Each photo captures the happiness and emotions spanning the day. We would highly recommend Kirsty for a wedding – the photography was one of the most important things and she nailed it!
