Molly Matcham - UK film family, wedding and branding photographer

your colourful life photographed on film| it’s all about the trip

I am a film photographer who specialises in photographing families, weddings and branding projects in a natural way. I am based in Cumbria and travel far and wide to tell stories.

I'm intrigued by the connections we make; a shared giggle, a subtle touch of the hand, a knowing look between old friends....those in between moments we long to remember, but don't always see. I wonder what's behind a laugh, a look, a nod or glance and how I can capture that forever through photography. I'm investigating and learning from every family, couple or entrepreneur that I photograph and show me something I never knew before. I love to hear people's stories and tell them through the honest medium of film photography for everyone to look back on and remember. I'd love to tell your story. Contact me here to book your session.

why I shoot film and why I love photography....

I could almost cry with emotion, I can’t tell you how wonderful they are and how special they are. Truly your talent is huge. You must never stop! It was like looking at the most artfully beautifully lit pages of my favourite magazine. Molly, thank you so very, very much. I am just so so full of joy and gratitude that these special things have been captured. I will tell you sincerely that these photos could not have been done better, they are just stunning. My family is all there, you have truly SEEN IT! I am literally moved to tears. I can’t thank you enough.

all the love....

The photos are fantastic!!! Thank you so much!! I love so many of them I’m going to need a tons of frames so I can hang them up! You’ve captured the moments beautifully! My father was very touched and loves the family portraits!
Both the grandparents love their shots with the kids and even the couples ones my dad was too embarrassed to take :-) Thank you again for such amazing photos and a great day!

sweetness overload...

Molly was the photographer on my “just the two of us” wedding. I found her through her instagram page and fell in love with her style instantly. Her photographs have a very specific vibe (she uses film cameras) and I knew right away that this is what I was looking for. Molly is a true artist with a great eye for details, and a very warm and kind person as well. I am so happy that she was part of this special day. Thank you for preserving those precious memories through your beautiful photos, Molly!

the Lake District and beyond....

It was a great experience to work with Molly. I commissioned her to do a commercial shoot for my print and design business. Right from the start I was really impressed with Molly’s enthusiasm and proactive approach. Preparation and communication leading up to the shoot was excellent. The shoot is self went very smoothly and now that we have the photos back - WOW!!!! They are exactly what I’d hoped for and we’re already getting comments from people saying they are amazing. I look forward to working with Molly again.
