Matthew Gillam the Photographer
I've shot hundreds of weddings.
I use professional gear, don't worry.
I am self-taught, so no certificate sorry.
I process & edit all my own photos.
I don't have a second shooter.
I'm very organised & paranoid about backing up.
I don't make albums or do prints.
I won't charge you for extra stuff later on.
I have, and will, travel for your wedding.
I don't do corporate photoshoots.
Or family photoshoots, sorry.
Matthew Gillam the Person
This is Jana.
We got married in April, 2017.
We're having We had a baby this July!
I'm the photographer. And she's my quality control.
I'm incredibly meticulous. Usually I'll finish editing a wedding in 2-3 weeks,
and then spend another 3 going over them again and again, making sure they're absolutely perfect.
She really does deserve the shoutout for her part in all of this.
"Is this good?" is a question she answers, way too often.
She's the encouragement I need,
and my reminder of why I love doing this.
This is Remy Mae.
She was born in July - so around 18 months in this photo.
She's my pride and joy, and completely changed my life.
I see the world through a different lens because of her.
The most relevant thing for weddings, is probably just how different I see the father-daughter interaction on the day itself. It's just unbelievable to imagine one day she'll be getting married too, and I'll be there for my first-look, the father-daughter dance, all of it.
This is Frankie & Georgie
They mostly get in the way actually,
but I couldn't have an about me page without them.
(And this is probably a good time to tell you that yes, you can bring your dog to your wedding.)
I also love music, running, cricket, sunny afternoons, Australia in general and tinkering with new technology. Happy to take any questions on any of the above!
