About Matisse Photography

I'm Marius and I'm a professional wedding, event and portrait photographer with four years of experience of delivering exceptional images. My style lies somewhere in between classic and documentary with the intent of capturing both those ‘blink of an eye’ special moments you will cherish forever and also those classical, orchestrated photographs that you will print and frame for your family. I am based in Canterbury, Kent – a city I love for its contrast between the medieval architecture and fresh student vibe, a city whose streets I love walking early on a spring morning, but also on a Saturday afternoon when you can really feel that fresh city buzz. As a full-time professional photographer, I seek to offer the most creative and genuine imagery possible while shooting the best moments of your event that will bring a smile on your face every single time. My focus is to capture those genuine candid moments of joy and laughter of your special day. Though I am always present, I never get in the way of your event. I love photographing weddings because there is no better chapter in life than that of two souls celebrating the start of their unique journey towards happiness. All this is done in an unobtrusive, photo-journalistic style while retaining an artistic and natural approach. I chose this mix of styles because I find that it lets people unwind and feel relaxed while helping me capture those discreet moments that otherwise would pass unnoticed. I inherited my love for photography when I was just a child from my father, helping him in the darkroom and being his mini assistant at countless weddings. Years later after fulfilling a career in IT and marketing, I decided to pursue a fine arts degree in photography. My life and my many passions are intertwined with photography; from trekking and traveling to food, festivals, wild birds and animals. I’m friendly and at all times making sure to go beyond what is expected while guaranteeing that I meet deadlines. Thank you for dropping by and if my style is what you're looking whether it’s for a wedding, a portrait session or any other celebration, please drop me a line. If we're a match, then we can meet for a coffee to go into the details. Don't forget, I'm paying!

Charlotte M.'s review on Apr 05, 2018

Absolutely amazing, Marius and Cristiana took our wedding day photos on 6th august. From the very first point of contact to even after we received our photos nothing was ever too much for them. We LOVE our wedding photos and so pleased we chose Matisse Photography to take them. They listened to our ideas of what we wanted and had some great ideas themselves, top quality editing. Every picture is so different and unique. 100% would recommend if you are wanting your photographer to go above and beyond these are the guys!!

Team B.'s review on Apr 05, 2018

(This review was taken over the phone by Bidvine) Simona Ponea Usurelu We have been using Marius for family photo shoots and birthdays since 2015. We have worked with him for about 7 times now. He is very professional. He delivers the photos on time, even earlier than arranged. The photos are always brilliant. We send them to the family as cards and memorabilia. He will make your memories perfect. You will be lucky to work with him.

Questions & answers

What should customers know about your pricing? (E.g. estimates, discounts, fees, package pricing)
I work based on packages but that doesn't mean I am not flexible. I can create a bespoke offer based on your specific needs in terms of time, extras and more. From time to time I offer discounts so keep an eye on my website!
What process do you go through when starting with a new customer?
The most important thing in regards to a starting out with a new customer is becoming comfortable with me and my camera around and that only happens when we get to know each other, so all my packages include a meeting either online or face to face. I'm the kind of guy with whom you quickly get comfortable around I promise.
What education or training is most relevant to your work?
I have been studying Photography at a graduate level and to be honest this was really important to develop the the way I "see" through the lens, but experience in capturing the right moment at the right time as Cartier Bresson said you need to capture the decisive moment .
Do you have tips or advice for someone hiring a pro in your line of work?
Look for that special feeling emerging from their photographs.
What are some good examples of past customers?
Nicky and James were unbelievably natural and you can feel this through their photos.
