Style and Approach

I describe my approach to Wedding Photography as creative and documentary.

What that means is I don’t just want to provide you with amazing images. I want you look over the photography from your wedding day and be transported back to it. I capture the combination of things that made your day special to you in an honest and natural way.

I will be there capturing all of the usual wedding bits – walking down the aisle, the vows, the speeches, cutting the cake – but mainly, the moments that you don’t always get to see and might otherwise pass un-noticed. The parts that really make your day yours, capturing the personality and fun as it happens.

In order to achieve my aims it’s essential that I get to know you a little, which is why I always conduct a face to face consultation as part of every package. This is where we can sit down over a cup of tea (or wine if you prefer!) and really talk about your plans for the day, what you like and what you don’t like.

I find my greatest work comes from those couples that we share a great rapport with, which is why it’s important to start our relationship early. One way to help can be a pre-wedding shoot. It gives us some time to get to know each other without the pressure of the big day and helps you feel more comfortable being in front of the camera.

I will be with you all day, from preparations to the first dance to capture everything I can. With the aim of providing you with a beautiful, yet meaningful record of your day.

“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!

I cannot thank Gemma enough for the day and everything that comes with it. To say I would highly recommend her is an understatement, we haven’t stopped hearing how much everyone loves the photos and how impressed they were with Gemma.”
