Relaxed but on point

Gavin provided an excellent service. We immediately liked his vibe and loved his documentary/candid style. My husband and I are not camera friendly. He made us feel at ease enough to capture some beautiful shots. He works expertly round the day always somehow knowing exactly where to be without getting in the way. We also had a videographer but there was no crowding. They worked so well in tandem without having previously met. Gavin was so easy to chat to and understood what was important to us.

I really can’t recommend West Coast Photos highly enough.

McEachran Wedding

We had so much fun capturing our wedding day with Gavin. He made us feel very relaxed from the beginning. Not a single moment was missed and we still 6 months on love to look back through all the photos and memories. We can't thank you enough Gavin. Mr & Mrs McEachran

Beautiful photos

We were lucky enough to have Gavin to take our wedding pictures in August 2021. Not only were the pictures beautiful, but Gavin was lovely too! He sent a sample of the photos later on, on the same day! Would highly recommend.

Brilliant Photographer, a must have for your special day

We booked West Coast photos for our wedding in August 2017. We could not be happier with the service Gavin provided. We had pictures from bride and groom perpetration through to our dance and it was such great day! Gavin made the whole experience brilliant, made everyone comfortable and was fun to have with us on our special day!! Our guests and bridal party were singing Gavin’s praises :)

The photos captured were spectacular, Gavin really has a great eye for a brilliant shot. We got a sneak peek of pictures the very next day which was a lovely touch and we received our photos very quickly. And the quality of the photos are amazing.

I would highly recommend west coast photos for a wedding, defiantly deserves more than 5 starts :)

West Coast Photos are a must have for any bride ????

Excellent service highly reccomend ??

Me and my partner got married in August last year. Gavin was highly recommended to us by a friend of my sisters. He covered everything from bridal preparations through to reception. Took loads of fantastic shots throughout the day. Very friendly and helpful, was all very relaxed, and family enjoyed getting all pics taking. Photos were amazing and sent out to us in good time. Also great prices. Would highly reccomend for anyone getting married. X
