What Couples Say
We love our couples and our couples love us. Here are some words that a few of our clients have to say about us.
We were privileged to have Matt as our wedding photographer. He made us feel so comfortable and put so much effort into making our photos special, including getting into mud to pull us out of the dam! Real commitment!!! We absolutely LOVE our photos and highly recommend Matt Masson! What an honour to spend our special day with a truly talented man! The best service! Most amazing photos! Couldn’t be more happy with our choice of a photographer!!

Nozipho & Zola – September 2015
“Thank you all so much for all the work you did toward our wedding! We had an amazing time. You were all professional and friendly, neatly dressed and on time. Everything about the business is professional and the extra step is always taken to ensure customer satisfaction. From you making the time to always respond to my emails, to meeting with me as soon as I arrived in SA. I was also very impressed with the presentation of all business related materials. The website is stunning and easy to navigate, the printable material is well put together and even the flash drive/card was just so cool! I have had numerous other people tell me how awesome the flash drive was. We really appreciate that you made the extra effort to drop off the pictures before I left. When I got back from SA we were able to sit together and re-live our wedding day via the pictures and memories you captured. You took some amazing candid pictures of friends and family that joined us (from near and far) so it was great to see them. I love the picture of everyone that was at the wedding on the front lawn of the DCC, it is awesome! We were really impressed how quickly you were able to come up with a Plan B after mother nature decided to bless our union with an out pouring of rain!”
Robyn & Tyler – February 2015
I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you for the absolutely stunning pictures! You guys are just the best! It was such a pleasure working with you both – I’ve never had so much fun doing photo’s in the rain before! You guys are so calm and fun yet so professional and you made us feel so comfortable. You were also so patient and I think every bride appreciates that. And your work is just AMAZING! You will definitely be on my list of recommendation!
Kershnee & Giorgio – April 2016
Absolutely amazing! Loved my photos and would HIGHLY recommend Matt to everyone Matt and his team made us feel super comfortable and just became part of the wedding party.

Products & Prints
Our Signature Albums are the perfect canvas for your memories. They are archival quality and will last for many years to come. With the options of 50, 70 and 90 large pages, there is plenty space for your photos to be showcased. We custom design every album to ensure your photos are displayed as beautifully as possible. All wrapped together perfectly in a leather-bound, personalised cover.
In the digital age, it is even more important to invest in professional, quality printing. Prints are the best and have always been the best way of displaying photography. By printing a photo, you are able to hold it in your hands or frame and hang it on your wall to share with your guests. We specialise in producing world class prints by closely partnering with the best print labs and refining the way we prepare the images for print. We are able to control all the elements to ensure the best prints, something that can’t be done when printing at a standard print shop or through another wedding photographer in Cape Town.
Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event which deserves the utmost care and consideration. We go to great lengths to ensure that we tell your story in the most compelling way. We only take a handful of weddings every year to give each couple the attention that they deserve for their big day.
Wedding Collections starting at 19 995 ZAR.
DO YOU TRAVEL FOR SHOOTS OR WEDDINGS?
Although Matt is primarily a wedding photographer in Cape Town, we absolutely love to travel. Nothing is more exciting than heading off to another country to shoot abroad. We absolutely love experiencing new places and cultures.
WE’RE PLANNING THINGS FAR IN ADVANCE. HOW SOON CAN WE BOOK YOU FOR OUR SHOOT?
We prefer to limit bookings to one year in advance in order to ensure accuracy with pricing and availability. We do make exceptions every now and then. The sooner you book, the better, as we have limited availability and our calendar fills up quickly.
HOW DO WE SECURE THE DATE WITH YOU?
To secure the date with us, we require our booking fee and a signed copy of the Photography Contract. It does take a while to fill out all the forms so we accept the booking fee as the same binding.
HOW MANY IMAGES WILL YOU GIVE US ON THE USB DRIVE?
We do not limit the amount of images that we give you on the USB Drive. We will always give you the most photos possible.
HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU NEED FOR PHOTOS?
Reception Decor: 30 minutes. Its best to do the decor shots before we start with the brides and grooms preparations so that your guest wont have to wait to enter the reception. You just need to make sure that your decor company is finished with the reception when our coverage starts.
Grooms Preparations: 60 minutes. We ask our gents to make sure they aren’t dressed when we arrive as we will love photographing the “getting ready” process.
Brides Preparations: 90 minutes. We ask our brides to time their makeup artist finishes their makeup about 20 minutes after we arrive, as then we can maximise time spent with the bride.
Family & Group Shots: 30 minutes. This depends on the size of your family and the number of guests.
Creative Shoot: 60-90 minutes. We do shoot quite quickly, but it is nice to have more than hour so we can spend some time making some truly memorable photos.
Reception: This is completely up to our couples – we just need the times of the formalities before the wedding.
We also have a Wedding Timeline document which we’ve designed to help our couples plan their photographic coverage.
CAN WE SCHEDULE A MEETING WITH YOU?
Absolutely! We are available to meet during the week after normal work hours in order accommodate your schedules and for Skype calls for out-of-town couples.
WHERE ARE YOU BASED?
We are based in Cape Town, South Africa and are available Worldwide for shoots.
WHAT TIME SHOULD WE SCHEDULE OUR WEDDING CEREMONY?
If you want to get the best creative photos, its a great idea to schedule your wedding ceremony to finish about an hour and a half to two hours before sunset on your wedding day. You can refer to http://www.timeanddate.com to check sunset times on the day of your wedding. Or you can just ask us! Being a wedding photographer in Cape Town, we have to watch the sunset activity.
CAN YOU RECOMMEND A VIDEOGRAPHER?
Yes, we can! We’ve worked many times with Heartistic Products and we just love them. They produce amazing work and are such a pleasure to work with.
