A little about me…
This is just to tell you a little about me, I think its good to get to know your wedding photographer.
I live in Northamptonshire with my husband Chris, my two gorgeous daughters and my dog Samson. Chris and I met while working in a pub in our early twenties. I was fresh out of uni having just graduated with a degree in Photography. Chris was bouncing from place to place trying to figure out what he wanted to do with his life.
The two of us hit it off immediately, and within a matter of months we had left that pub and started our lives together. We are best friends and each others biggest fan. We have travelled together, got married, built a home, got a dog, and embarked on the biggest adventure there is, parenting.
For me, photography was always my calling from the moment I picked up my first camera. I am passionate, creative, and fascinated with creating images that tell the truth of the moment. As well as running my wedding photography business, I am studying for my Masters degree in photography. I also love to bake and sew.
Alongside his job, Chris has also taken responsibility for the technical side of this little business. He looks after our kit, maintains our website and continues to develop our client area.
If you require a second shooter, I often bring along Caitlin. I have known and worked with her for many years, we have a great rapport and compliment each other so well. Caitlin is what I like to describe as a bit of a photography ninja. She has an amazing ability to blend into the background and capture moments unnoticed, which gives her images a wonderfully natural feel.
Something that we all share is a love for meeting new people, and making people happy. Wedding photography gives us the chance to do both of these, meeting wonderful couples and their guests, and hopefully providing a bit of happiness through our photography.

Here are some nice things that people have said…
“We can’t thank Gemma and her husband Chris enough for capturing our special day. It was such a pleasure to have them both their with us, and ourselves and our guests can’t speak highly enough of them with many people thinking them to be guests themselves they fit right in! As well as all of this the photos have come out unbelievable and so natural exactly like we wanted. We know we picked the right photographer for us and we highly recommend Gemma to everyone. Thank you so much for everything”
Mollie and Allen
“Gemma took the most amazing photographs of our wedding. Her documentary style of photography is exactly what we wanted, and the best photos of our day are the ones she took without us realising! Gemma is such a friendly and positive person, exactly who you wanted around on this important day. We would recommend Gemma as a photographer for all photo shoots, but especially for weddings where she will capture your day perfectly. Thank you so much Gemma for our wonderful photos!”
Katherine and Dean
“Thank you so so so SO much for our photos! I don’t think believe anyone could have captured the fun and love that filled our big day better. Also, you must be some kind of stealthy wizard, as I just don’t remember seeing you snap most of them, which lead to some absolutely gorgeous surprises! Thank you for being as laid back and up for anything as we were (funfair anyone?!?) and for being such a great part of our big day!”
Cat and Rob
“What an Amazing Pair! Our Photos are Perfect! This Lady is Creative, Funny and she Just Gets it and she’s so Easy going too which instantly puts you at ease. She also totally up for giving things a try. The thing I love most about her style is that she sees those moments you would miss and it gives you the perfect balance of posed and casual Photos. I cannot recommend Gemma Highly enough! Now i just need to choose which of these amazing photos are going on the wall… I think I need more Walls… Thank you Gemma for capturing all the moments so that they can be remembered and shared for Generations xx”
Chrissy and Stuart
“Gemma recently did a newborn photoshoot with our baby at our home. She was brilliant with our daughter and made sure she (and us) were always comfortable with what she was doing. The photos are absolutely beautiful, can’t wait to get some on our wall.
Gemma is such a lovely lady too, she instantly makes you feel at ease and is so easy to chat to as well.
We’ve booked Gemma for our wedding next year too and can’t wait to work with her again”
Katie and Martin
“We just want to say a huge thank you to Gemma. The photos are just amazing and we couldn’t be happier with all of them. Gemma was brilliant to have with us through the day, most of the time we didn’t know she was there so some of the photos are just so natural which is exactly what we wanted. She was even there to help get me in my dress when we were struggling!
We have had so many compliments on the photos and also how lovely Gemma was throughout the day! She even edited some images during the wedding breakfast so we could show our night guests some of the photos, which was fantastic.
On the day Gemma asked to take photos of us through my vail, which at the time thought was crazy, however they have turned out to be our favourite photos of the day, they are just stunning.
I cannot thank Gemma enough for the day and everything that comes with it. To say I would highly recommend her is an understatement.”
Kirsty and Dan
“Gemma really captured our wedding day with some fantastic photos. The website is user friendly to view and order the pictures and she is so professional, calm and gets the job done without any stress.”
Michael and Elaine
“A wonderfully professional yet personal service, highly recommended!”
