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 recently completed my Masters degree in photography and have been working on a portraiture project. 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…
“Incredible photographer, it felt natural and as though there was no pressure. It also gave me and my new husband time that felt as though it was all to ourselves. Throughout the rest of the day no one even noticed that Gemma was busy snapping away behind the scenes. I could not praise or recommend Gemma enough! From what we’ve previewed the shots are so creative and personal”
Stephanie and James
“The instant I met Gemma I knew I wanted her to be my photographer. I went straight home and told my fiancée that we had to meet her! Gemma was outstanding on the day and literally felt like our friends and family, she fitted right in and made everyone feel at ease. She really listened to type of pictures we wanted and took our lead as well as given us guidance on what would work best. We loved all the images and can’t thank Gemma enough for capturing our special day!”
Sarah and Geddy
“Gemma was incredible on the day and on the run up to my wedding. Any questions I had she answered and was willing to meet up and look at my venue to scout out the best shots. She was so calming on the day, she even helped to get my son ready when I was stressing out. Most of the time you couldn’t even tell she was there but still managed to get the perfect shots. Couldn’t be more happy with her if I tried!!”
Paris and Steve
“I cannot stress enough how fantastic Gemma and her team have been during the preparation, run up and wedding day itself. She went out of her way to tailor her services to what we wanted and provided over and above what was expected. She even thought up little extras to make our day special and worked closely with us to make sure all our personality quirks were included!! Gemma you are amazing, thank you x”
Paul and Kirsten
“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!”
