Hi! We are Matt and Brenda Foden, a husband and wife photography team. We love capturing the fun and emotion of our couples’ wedding day in a relaxed and creative style. We’re not fans of formality, and whilst we do shoot a limited number of group shots on wedding days we aim to make these fun, informal and very relaxed. We put a great deal of focus on building a rapport with couples and this really helps them to feel comfortable in front of the camera. We’re delighted to be recommended photographers for a number of lovely venues (all of which we would highly recommend) including Oaks Farm, Morden Hall, Clock Barn Hall, Westmead Events and Kent Life, and were recently regional finalists in the 2018 Wedding Industry Awards.
What’s so good about booking a husband and wife team?
One of the best thing about working as a husband and wife team is that we really understand what it’s like to be in our couples’ shoes on their wedding day. Having two of us shooting your wedding or portrait session means that you get comprehensive coverage from different angles and perspectives. It also means that you will get coverage that you simply cannot get with a single photographer. For example, whilst Brenda covers the bridal preparations, Matt can cover the guys getting ready (or having a drink!)
Where are we based?
We are based near Croydon in Surrey, but we are available to shoot weddings across the UK as well as destination weddings too. We shoot most of our weddings across the Home Counties and London, including Surrey, Essex, Kent, Sussex, Herts and Hampshire. We are recommended photographers for some fab venues including Oaks Farm, Kent Life, Morden Hall and Clock Barn Hall.
‘I got in to photography 7 years ago when Matt asked me along to assist him on a wedding. He handed me a camera and then the rest, as they say, is history! I love taking fine art style portraits and details, and I’m probably the more organised member of the Foden Photography team. I always feel incredibly privileged to shoot couples’ weddings– it’s so much fun, and incredibly uplifting! I have two daughters, two cats called Rosie and Tilly, and a fondness for pickled onion monster munch!‘
‘I’m an unabashed photo geek, and tend to bore Brenda (and friends!) to death with my love of cameras and lenses! I’ve been shooting weddings for over 9 years now, and I just love it! My speciality is documentary photography, but I draw just as much inspiration from television and film as I do still photography. Apart from photography I’m also a husband, step dad, and of course a Dad to Rosie and Tilly the cats (who rule our roost!)
Do you shoot portraits and events?
Yes we do. We are available to photograph parties, portraits, events and other commissions. We regularly shoot engagement shoots for couples, as well as family lifestyle portrait sessions. We have also shot live music events and have been commissioned to shoot for charities and commercial organisations. We have recently completed a project on behalf of the Croydon Performing Arts Festival, have carried out shoots for the London Mozart Players and even been commissioned to photograph the award winning singer-songwriter Jon Hart for his recent album artwork. For more information please get in touch.
