What our clients say about us
“I booked Foden Photography after they worked at a friend’s wedding. After meeting them to discuss what we were after, their competitive rates and personal service were exactly what we wanted. Every time we met with Matt and Brenda, they were so friendly and made us feel so comfortable. On the day itself, as it was raining and dark, we couldn’t go outside but I wasn’t worried as Matt and Brenda immediately came up with alternatives, and dealt with the challenges of the lighting excellently. The photographs that have come back are beautiful and haven’t been compromised by the British weather in any way. They organised our guests well, and ensured that all the photos we wanted were captured on time. They also caught the light-heartedness of the occasion that we wanted, and there are some photos that make us laugh with joy every time we see them. On such a stressful occasion, it’s important to have people around you that make you feel comfortable and reassured, and this was absolutely the case with Matt and Brenda. Thank you for all your help in making our day so memorable, and giving us gorgeous photos that we will treasure forever.” – Alex and Becky, Caterham, Surrey
“We were extremely pleased with Matt & Brenda. During our initial consultation we really clicked with them & yet were also told to take our time choosing our photographer to make sure we made the right choice for us- a nice touch. The fact they operate as a duo helped capture a lot more of our special day and in 2 different styles giving a range of pictures we didn’t feel we would get from other photographers. Our engagement photo session helped confirm we had made the right choice & meant we had one less thing to worry about on the day!”- Bex and Ian, Kent
“Matt and Brenda really made our day amazing! They took the time to really listen to what we wanted, and we felt extremely confident that they would capture our day perfectly. We were not disappointed! Our photos are beautiful, and really show the spirit of our celebration. A comment from a guest really sums it all up – ‘it’s so nice you got your friends to take your photos’. Matt and Brenda really cared about us, and it showed. They are fantastic people and true professionals.” – Kym and Simon, Surrey
“Wow! what can I say?! I’m writing this with tears in my eyes from just having seen the beautiful photos you took of our wedding day. You captured every single detail and emotion with photographic perfection and the black and white photos are absolutely stunning! I feel transported back to our wedding looking at these photos and it’s so nice to see the little moments captured that I didn’t notice on the day-thank you SO MUCH!!!” – Paul and Kaz – Surrey
“Where do we start? By saying this is intended to be a quick thank you, however there is so much we would like to say it will be somewhat the opposite.
From the moment we first met you both we knew straight away we had found the right people to capture our special day. You were easy to talk to, friendly and had exactly the style and ideas we were looking for. You came prepared with previous work which had the WOW factor that just nailed our decision there and then. You also suggested a great DJ company who we eventually booked too and what a fantastic suggestion that was.
On to our second visit, well here we realised just why we were right to book yourselves. Your experience was evident here showing attention to detail and knowing suitable shots and times before we had even thought about things ourselves. It was so reassuring to have your knowledge on our side, your calming influence helped by the fact you are both so easy to get along with kept our nerves in check.
On the big day you were FANTASTIC. You helped out with so much more than you needed to, going that extra mile. (Even helping the groomsmen with the button holes) ????
During the ceremony you blended into the background and we wouldn’t have even noticed you were there. Then working so hard during the day (Brenda kind of not enjoying the golf buggy ride while Matt was lugging all his gear down to the golf course like a true gentleman) showing us the poses you wanted us in rather than telling us lol. I guess it helps being married yourselves. You both were running around catching moments that would have been missed by others for instance the kids running off to play. It’s refreshing that Matt was confident and commanding with the group shots while not being pushy and had enough courage to experiment with different styles of portraits while Brenda was innovative enough to get some great perspectives when it could have been all to easy to follow Matt’s lead. You even got our son involved for some of the group shots. Now that is an accolade not to be sniffed at.
Leading into the evening you both continued to work so hard. To collaborate with the DJ in the way you both did ensured that we will take away some shots of everybody on the dancefloor, something that only happened that one time. ( I did say that you were always going that extra mile didn’t i? ) Guests were also taken back by how much ground you both covered while not getting in anybodys way and how friendly you both are made everybody feel comfortable even when they knew you were taking aim.
All in all booking you guys was without a doubt the best decision we have ever made, after getting married ourselves of course.
Our only regret would be that we were so busy with everything we didn’t think to get a photo with the two of you. A great couple.
Our warmest thanks… again.

“Matt and Brenda were amazing! From our first meeting I felt at complete ease and knew we would be in very capable hands. They explained very clearly the service they could provide and it was clear that they work perfectly as a team. We booked a preshoot and they are the most amazing photos I’ve seen (apart from the wedding ones of course)! On our wedding day I felt like I had two friends behind the cameras! We have the most beautiful photos to help us remember our day. I am so glad we found them!!” – Philippa and Joel – London
“Foden Photography covered our wedding earlier this year and I wouldn’t hesitate recommending their services. In fact we have already been asked for their contact details by guests impressed on the day and the fantastic results that followed shortly after. We were rather anxious about choosing our photographers as we wanted a relaxed feel to the whole day for both ourselves and our guests, and Foden Photography fitted the bill perfectly. They were never intrusive and they felt like wedding guests more than anything else. Having two photographers was a fantastic bonus, ensuring every aspect of the day was covered and we now have a collection of photos we will treasure forever. Thanks again Matt & Brenda!!” – Dan and Emily – Kent
“An amazing couple who we found by chance and thank goodness we did. They put us both at ease on a hectic day and both of us are a little camera shy. They planned with us at our house and got to know us and listened. This was so important as a previous photographer we found was doing what was on her agenda. They ensured they got all the shots we wanted and nobody felt they were in the way…in fact people have loved our wedding photos as they capture the story of a fantastic day. Amazing!” – Vicky and Bobby – Surrey
“We booked Matt and Brenda as our wedding photographer around two years in advance. From the first enquiry they were very professional and friendly. They replied to all our enquiries very quickly and we met them a couple of times before our big day to discuss what we would like. On our wedding day Matt and Brenda arrived in perfect time, were very professional and I know they took some amazing photos. They worked brilliantly with our videographer and were happy to take all the extra shots we requested on they day. We have had several guests comment on how friendly and professional our photographers were.” – Rosanne and James – Kent
“There was not question as to who we wanted to do our wedding photographs. Matt and Brenda are incredibly talented individuals with a real eye for detail. We loved their style of photography and wanted a photographer to capture moments of the day and not have any traditional photographs. Were not great at having our pictures taken and they made it so easy, we didn’t give them any set photos to take and trusted their creativity. They were not intrusive and fitted in well with our guests. We also didn’t want to be away from our guests for too long so all our photos were taken in a relatively short space of time during our drinks reception. Our favourite photos are the ones of us in a group having fun, it totally sums up our memories of the day! Thank you so much!” – Matt and Jo – Hertfordshire
“Matt and Brenda were fantastic. They worked extremely hard on the day and made the photos fun. Everything they did was pitched perfectly and all our guests said how wonderful they were too. We had a perfect day and Foden photography were a huge part of the reason it was so perfect. Wonderful people and amazing photographers.” – Eldon and Emma – Surrey
“Foden Photography, Matt and Brenda, shot our wedding in Cranbrook, Kent in September 2012 and did a superb job. Here’s why we’d recommend them… 1. Matt and Brenda got married themselves a few years ago. They know how chaotic and exciting planning a wedding is. They were so easy to work with. 2. They are incredibly friendly. By the time the wedding came around I would’ve invited them as guests. 3. Excellent value for money. We looked at a few other photographers who were, frankly, stuck up and ludicrously expensive. Foden Photography has packages to suit all budgets and they will go the extra mile whichever one you choose. 4. They really put you at ease. I HATE having my photo taken so we took advantage of the pre wedding shoot. This really helped me feel more relaxed about the whole process. They will capture your best features, and, most importantly, how happy you are! 4. On the big day, Foden Photography weren’t at all intrusive and we were able to enjoy our wedding. We didn’t spend all day posing for contrived pictures – this was really important to us as we had travelled home from overseas for the wedding, and many guests had come from far flung places. Our time with them was precious. Foden Photography worked around the celebrations seamlessly. 5. The albums are lovely. Very high quality and professionally put together. 6. Everyone comments on how great our wedding pictures are!” – Nicola and Peter
“Thank you so much for all your help on the day. It was lovely having you and Brenda with us on the day and it felt more like friends taking the photos for us! Everyone has commented on how beautiful the photos are… Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Anna and James – London
“We were so lucky to find Foden Photography to help us capture our relaxed, whimsical city skyline wedding. We had some ideas of what we wanted but the Foden’s really helped make them a reality, and brought their own spin to it giving us more than we could have wanted. Their calm relaxed and fun vibe was just what we needed to get us through our day.” – – Matt and Jodie – London
“Generally, I’m the one behind the camera taking the photos, so I knew it would be difficult to choose a photographer for our wedding. After attending a few wedding fairs we weren’t having much luck in finding someone with that personal touch, but from the moment we met Matt and Brenda we knew they were the photographers for us. On the wedding day their professionalism, flexibility and lightheartedness helped to make the day run smoothly. The pictures look fantastic and feel they really captured the day beautifully. We could not have asked for more and highly recommend their services. Thank you Matt and Brenda!” – Kirk and Thirzah – Essex
“Thank you so much for being such wonderful photographers at our wedding. We absolutely love our photos. You are a truly fantastic couple and made our day work so smoothly. We will recommend you to all our friends and family, we could not have asked for better photographers than yourselves.’ – James and Su – Kent
“Matt and Brenda were incredible on our wedding day. They fitted in with out being noticed but were happy to make sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time. Thanks to them our day went so smoothly. The photos they produced were just what we had asked for and were turned around really quickly. We couldn’t have asked for more” – Clare and Jason – Surrey
“Matt and Brenda photographed our wedding in October 2013 at Pembroke Lodge in Richmond Park. From our initial meeting with them it was clear that they were the right people for us – professional but warm, attentive to detail but also relaxed and flexible. The quality of the photos speak for themselves, but on the day they blended into the atmosphere with a minimum of fuss whilst ensuring that we got the shots we wanted. They made sure we got what we wanted both before the big day, meeting us to discuss ideas and get us used to the camera, and afterwards, when we were making final decisions over album design etc. It was an entirely personalised and seamless service from end to end. We couldn’t recommend Matt and Brenda more highly if you’re looking for a wedding photographer.” – Dean and Victoria – London
“Matt and Brenda were the first photographers we met, and we knew they were the right ones for us pretty much as soon as we met them. Aside from their creativity, professionalism, and beautiful work, they are just such wonderful people. As the bride and groom, we felt like we were being photographed by friends – they got to know us as people; they made us laugh when we needed to relax; and melted away into the background when they needed to so that they could get the images they needed without distracting from the unfolding of the day. I’m not one for being in front of the camera and never have been, but Matt and Brenda gave me the confidence I needed and I’m so pleased with the photos” – Anna and Daniel – High Wycombe
“Matt and Brenda Foden are not only professional photographers but a genuinely lovely couple and team. They were professional but with a relaxed approach from the first meeting right up until the last photo at our wedding. They delivered exactly what they promised and helped to make our special day, special, capturing moments we missed, but now thanks to Matt and Brenda we have those moments to treasure forever! Thank you Foden Photography.” – Amy and Scott – Kent
“Matt and Brenda photographed our wedding in August 2010. What a fantastic job they did, they were relaxed and friendly but also very professional. We loved our photographs and have had many compliments from friends and family about how good they are. We would definitely recommend Matt & Brenda.” – Michelle and Stuart – Redhill, Surrey
“We’d just like to share how Matt and Brenda created some superb pictures of our 5 year old daughter Ella. She’s a bit shy, so when we were presented with a ‘rabbit in the headlights’ school photo of her (taken by a pro!?), we decided to hire Matt and Brenda in to capture what was missing her character. Have to say, we were amazed at how quickly they both brought her out of her shell. After years of avoiding photo’s, within minutes she was parading around like a model on a shoot. Our family are delighted with the results and so is Ella. We’ve a lovely selection of natural shots of Ella that we truly recognise as our daughter. We fully recommend Matt and Brenda for taking children’s portraits.” – Julie and Mark – Kent
