COVID-19 Update
Hi everyone, First of all, I hope everyone is keeping safe and staying at home. This is a strange time but I am sure we will all pull through. I am working my hardest to make changes for any brides that have been hit hard with COVID-19. It is a very stressful time planning a wedding even without this outbreak. So, I want to support all my brides the best I can. Any dates that are postponed please just speak with me. I will do my best to be available for the new date given to you by the venue. We all need to support each other and make sure when your wedding goes ahead (which it will) we can all have a massive party and give you the wedding you deserve. Please call me on 07557789203 OR message me if you need to chat about anything. I am always here. Gary x

He is down to earth and just a genuinely nice guy
Gary was very responsive in advance of the wedding answering any questions I had, arrived on time looking very professional and ready for the day. He is down to earth and just a genuinely nice guy who makes you feel at ease which is so important with a photographer. He went above and beyond with organising my crazy family and ensuring we got the photos we had requested Thank you Gary for capturing our special day perfectly. The emotions, the laughs and everything in between. The results speak for themselves.

There wasn’t a single guest that didn’t comment on
Gary shot our wedding in November 2019 and we could not be happier with our decision to use him. There wasn’t a single guest that didn’t comment on how professional and friendly Gary was, and how we didn’t even realise he was there! We really wanted natural shots and that is exactly what we got, the emotions of the day captured perfectly. I couldn’t recommend Gary highly enough for classy, natural shots of your wedding. Thank you Gary!

What is your most memorable wedding?

Ibiza 2019 was a wedding to remember. It was my first destination wedding and just an incredible experience.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Natural, reportage, documentary, candid, fun

What about your business are you most proud of?

I shot 35 weddings in my first year. I still can't believe how far I have come so quickly.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Always try to meet OR at least speak to the supplier via Skype or facetime. It is so important to get along and have the same values in life.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Any couple that make something that is personal to them even if it means going against tradition.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Meeting the couple via skype happens a lot these days. After that (if booked) i like to stay in contact with the couple regularly leading up to the big day. By the wedding, we will all get along so well and everyone will feel comfortable.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Just having 15 minutes away from the crazy wedding alone. This gives the couple some time to reflect on the day while i capture some beautiful natural portraits.

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

To still have the best day. It's just rain and there is nothing we can do. You can still have the best day and enjoy every second. Embrace the rain as you will get stunning, moody photos.

Describe how you got into photography.

I first started shooting street photography & landscape photography as a hobby. I quickly became obsessed with capturing people in a moment when they did not even realise I had taken a photo. This then led me wanting to take this passion and skill into weddings. I now LOVE my job.
