Hi I’m¬†Gemma

A Surrey based Wedding photographer and lover of all things ‚Äúweddingy‚ÄĚ

I photograph weddings all over the UK, telling your whole story from start to finish ensuring the narrative of your Wedding day is captured. I love to produce meaningful images with minimal posing that recreate the feelings you experienced on your special day. I adore working with natural light and creating amazing images that encapsulate you as individuals and as a couple.


I do specialise in LGBTQ+ couples and although I don’t have a rainbow lens, I am a part of the LGBTQ+ world myself, and am passionate about helping everyone¬† in love to celebrate!
Whilst, as my portfolio shows, I am happy to photograph ALL weddings, all photographers have a passion, and when I’m working in my passion the results are amazing¬†
I also know that weddings, whilst a celebration, can have one or two tricky bits when you’re in an LGBTQ+ relationship, and there are many issues around marriage equality for us to deal with worldwide. I am sensitive to these as your photographer and ensure that the results will align with your want for a quiet, safe, special moment…or your big gay rainbow

If your day is focused on having the¬†best day of your lives with your favourite people, I am the perfect photographer for you. I’m the wedding photographer people come to when they want the emphasis to be on capturing those special moments, whether it be the subtle look between two people in love or the joy of a true belly laugh.

I practice a natural photography style, which in my opinion captures the most authentic and emotional images of your wedding. I have this amazing ability to be able to make people feel at ease whilst telling the story of your day without making you stand in uncomfortable poses for hours on end

Whether you decide to book me or another photographer, It’s essential for you to choose a photographer you’re comfortable with, and who loves interacting with people. After all they will be with you and your loved ones on your magical day.
