Introduction
My name is Matt Parker and I am a professional photographer based in Charleston, South Carolina. I was born and raised in England. I have a passion for photography, and growing up on the Cornish coastline, it was impossible not to pursue my hobby in such a beautiful environment. ​ I studied for further training at college, followed by an honors degree in photojournalism and art photography at university. ​ Post university, I started my own business as a professional wedding photographer in England. I became a member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers, and the British Professional Photographers Association. ​ I moved to South Carolina in 2019 and am happy to call Charleston home. It is the perfect city to get married, offering so many beautiful locations and venues. ​ I approach wedding photography like photojournalism; Capturing the moments and memories as they happen as discreetly as possible. I like to use natural light whenever available and produce timeless images that you will cherish forever. I can shoot fine art, modern, traditional and any other style you request. With over 8 years experience as a professional photographer, I am confident you have come to the right place. Through establishing and maintaining excellent relationships with clients, I am committed to providing an outstanding service and providing images I know you will love. I also do surprise proposal photography, engagement shoots, bridal shoots, portraits, headshots, commercial and event photography and am a licensed drone operator so can shoot aerials commercially.

Matt was very quick to respond when we reached out to get our engagement photos done in Charleston. We are from Ohio, so we were not familiar with the area at all but Matt was very professional, and he was very kind in walking us through the process and guiding us throughout our shoot. The photos he took came back fully edited the same day as well. We will be recommending him to our friends when they visit, as well as going through him again when we come back!

We had a great time taking our engagement pictures with Matt! This was the first time doing a photo shoot together and Matt made us feel comfortable by guiding us the entire way. We are so happy with the way the pictures turned out and would definitely recommend Matt.

Booking with Matt was the best decision I could’ve made! This was our first experience getting photos done as a couple, even more nerve racking that it was our engagement photos! Matt was awesome. He walked us through each pose, and really gave us the most beautiful, breathtaking backdrops that historic downtown Charleston has to offer. From his professionalism, comfortability, guidance and just simple conversation - it was an experience we’ll never forget. The photos were turned around to us in less than 24 hours - now that is exemplary service. Consider yourself lucky, if Matt is available to do your photos! Thank you, again!

I would highly recommend Matt for any photography needs. He was very organized, responsive, accommodating, and talented. We had a surprise engagement planned for Folly beach though we had never visited the area before. He was well informed of the area and helped us shape a plan. He kept hidden and was discrete and then was extremely aware of his surroundings and accommodating after the moment happened. He even helped wrangle our energetic golden retriever while capturing our photos. Thanks Matt!
