My own love story started at a wedding where I met the love of my life, and a few years later we began a very different chapter after discovering we would soon be welcoming a baby to the world. Before I had even shared the news I was pregnant, I was asked to shoot a friends wedding, who loved my fashion work and wanted me to tell her love story. It was then, that I realised it was weddings that I wanted to photograph. The coming together of family and friends to celebrate, the breath taking sight of a couple deeply in love, tears of joy and deep belly laughs, who wouldn’t want to share this? At the same time, I was busy making plans with my partner about our future plans, how our lives were about to change and what we wanted most for our child. We decided that we wanted our new baby to take risks and follow their dreams, and above all, pursue love and happiness over money. We named our son Chase, before he was born and he is the reason today, I follow my dream and passion with photography and why Gemma Chase Photography exists today.
