About

On Hitched.co.uk since 2022

Last update: May 2024

Hello, thanks so much for visiting my profile! My name is Brad, and I’m a wedding and family photographer based in Bedfordshire. I predominantly work across the home counties (Herts, Beds & Bucks) but am more than willing to travel all over the UK and beyond when required.

I shot my first wedding in 2017 and immediately knew this is what I wanted to do long-term instead of working a standard 9-5 office job. My photography style and approach is very relaxed and natural, using a documentary style with some creative storytelling to enable me to capture all of the happiness, joy and emotion of your special day. My main objective is to help document your day as it happens and to intervene as little as possible.

I believe that my natural approach helps to capture the truest moments of your special day, and previous clients say that these are the photos they treasure the most: the look in your father’s eyes when he sees you in your dress for the first time, a proud Mum wiping away a tear, the laughter between friends and the love in your eyes as you share your first dance. These moments can’t be staged or repeated, and these are the genuine interactions that I love to capture, for you to cherish.

Please do get in touch if you like my style of photography – I’d love to be part of your wedding!

Absolutely fantastic photos and service

Brad was our photographer at our wedding! What can I say, his photographs are pieces of art; Brad has a fantastic eye for beautiful photo opportunties. All of our guests are incredibly impressed and pleased by the photos. In addition to these, the level of service provided by Brad has been absolutely fantastic, he turned around teaser shots within 24 hours, plus produced all of our photos in less than 3 weeks. Would definitely recommend.

Relaxed, fun and amazing photos

Brad was truly fantastic throughout and we couldn't have asked for more.

We asked Brad to photograph our wedding at Dodford Manor in May 2024. It was a fairly big wedding with 120 guests.

There were lots of moments that we really wanted to capture on the day which made it quite logistically challenging but Brad (and the 2nd photographer Stu) expertly captured everything perfectly!

Everything from a red bus travelling our guests from Staverton, to my journey in an old vintage car from Dodford Grange to the church, arriving the the drinks reception, garden games, speeches, first dance, and family portraits and, of course, our own bride and groom portraits.

We couldn't believe the amazing (1200+) gallery that we received afterwards! The day was a bit of a blur but we'll have Brad's photos to remind us of every moment forever which we couldn't be more grateful for.

I should also mention we did a pre wedding shoot (with our dog and baby in tow) which really helped us to feel relaxed with Brad on the day as we knew what to expect and he was a familiar face. We aren't naturals with posing and so on so it really helped us to get a feel for it.

Final thing to say is that Brad is great and calming person to have around and guide you through the day. He's so responsive to every question you may have and I'd definitely recommend him for your big day.

Thanks Brad!!

Cannot recommend highly enough!

Not only did our wedding photos turn out better than we could ever dreamed of, Brad was just a wonderful person to have around on our wedding day. He made us feel comfortable during the couple shots, did a fantastic job of getting everyone into place for the official photos and any other planned shots like sparklers and confetti but he was also barely noticeable throughout the day whilst he was capturing the rest of the day as it happened.

We had so many comments throughout and after the wedding about how great Brad was, especially with the children we had attend the day who were very interested in his cameras!

We have no idea how we are going to choose photos for an album as there are just so many amazing ones to choose from…

We also did a couples shoot before the wedding which gave us a chance to get to know Brad before the day and this assured us that we had chosen the right photographer for us!

Highly Recommend!!

After searching far and wide across London, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire for a photographer for our wedding, we came across Brad Gommon Photography. It was his impressive portfolio that did it for us! He had the best night photos and he exceeded expectations. Brad really put us at ease throughout the wedding planner process and made very good suggestions, which we are extremely grateful for. Brad was super organised, arrived earlier than expected and was very professional. He wasn't intrusive at all, and picked the perfect moments to take photos. He went above and beyond to ensure he took the best photos for us and made us feel comfortable throughout. We also got on a personal level, he is kind and super creative. His photos were incredible!! We are so happy and privileged to have had Brad as our wedding photographer. Thank you so much Brad! Those looking for a photographer, stop your search and look no further. Brad is the one for you!

Everything was great

Highly recommend. We are so happy with the photos and love the shots he got & how he edited them. We FaceTimed twice before which was great customer service. He sent us photos the next morning so we had some to post on socials. 5* for everything.

I would recommend Brad to anyone in a heartbeat as a photographer

We had first noticed Brad at our best friend's wedding, as he was their photographer. He was so friendly to the whole wedding party (not just the B&G) that I knew when we got married he'd be a great person to spend the day with snapping pics. When the pictures came back for our friend's wedding the images were fantastic - vibrant and caught special moments.

Brad was great on our day, he even helped us find our videographer for the morning and ceremony also whom he recommended, and they worked together really well to make us all feel comfortable and capture the important fleeting moments.

What I ended up really impressed with were Brad's ideas on the day, for example he asked the staff to move our cake from the corner of the room to the centre of the dancefloor for cake cutting, and they are some of my favourite photos as it turned cutting the cake into a really special moment where we were centre stage.

Brad kindly sent through about 8 pics as early as possible after our wedding, which were lovely to have and share with family before the final album was ready. You find yourself itching to see the pics and relive some of the day so this was massively appreciated.

I would recommend Brad to anyone in a heartbeat as a photographer; you couldn't meet a nicer or more professional chap and the results speak for themselves - stunning picture quality. Thanks again Brad!

Excellent Photographer

We chose Brad as our photographer because we loved the range of images in his portfolio - a mix of the spontaneous moments, the formal family and friends and the ‘wow’ artistic shots. And this was certainly reflected in the images from our big day - we loved the floating veil (though we had to be persistent, who knew there was a right way to throw the veil up!), the sunset, the moments of us as a couple and those candid camera moments showing everyone having a great time.

Brad was wonderful to work with - really easy on the big day and we had every confidence with him. Prior to and after the event, Brad kept us in the loop and we really valued his input and suggestions.

Professional, fun, fabulous!

BOOK BRAD NOW!! :)

Brad and James photographed our wedding at Dodford Manor in December 2022. My husband and I aren’t used to posing for photographs and we are definitely not ‘picture perfect’ people but Brad definitely made us look as though we were! We had so much fun with Brad and James. They made us feel so comfortable and we had such a laugh with them. Brad and James are really creative and will give pretty much anything a go! They know what looks good and will suggest places, how to stand etc. Brad got our photos back to us in 3 weeks and sent us some teaser photos almost immediately after the wedding. We couldn’t recommend Brad enough, our photos are more than we could have ever hoped for and he’s such a lovely person! Thank you so much Brad!

Brad is fantastic

Brad was absolutely fantastic before, during and after our wedding! He made us feel comfortable throughout the day and our guests all thought Brad was lovely! He captured all the highlights of our day with a mixture of posed and candid photos and was so subtle we hardly knew he was there!
We would thoroughly recommend an engagement shoot as this made us more used to posing for photos therefore were more relaxed on the day!

Fantastic service from start to finish!

We don’t know where to start with a review on Brad, he was simply wonderful from start to finish, from the initial meeting we knew we felt instantly relaxed around him and reassured he had everything under control when photographing our wedding.
Not only did he take some breathtaking photos of our special day, but he also made everyone around him feel comfortable, including knowing how to chat and interact with the children to get the best photos from them too- and he fitted in so well among the guests, everyone commented on how nice and friendly he was and also how thorough he was throughout the whole day, guests have now also seen his work and have said if they needed a photographer in the future, Brad is who they would go to!

Thank you so much Brad for capturing all the special moments of our Wedding day, you got all the shots we would possibly want and we will be looking at them for years and years to come ❤️

Bride and groom

Brad photographed our wedding in 2021.

From the numerous conversations (and changes of date due to covid) Brad was informative, approachable, friendly and professional.

Leading up to our wedding correspondence was great and we were never left wondering what’s happening.

The morning of the wedding Brad arrived and almost became ‘invisible’ snapping away and getting every shot of both of us separately getting ready for the day. Brad went above and beyond on our day from photo opportunities with smoke bombs to standing in a road to get the right shot!

We were so impressed with our photos and have them around our home as a daily reminder of our wonderful day. Thank you Brad for capturing the best day, celebrating with friends and family and for giving us memories to look back on forever.

Excellent Photographer

We meet Brad very early in our wedding planning and even though we weren't in the position to choose a photographer, Brad was amazing and spent time talking to us about the various venues he's captured.

This time he spent with us left an amazing impression to which meant there was no one else we would have chosen to photograph our wedding.

Brad kept in consent communication with us leading up to the day and made us feel relaxed so that we can be ourselves in front of the camera. We were very impressed with how quickly Bras was able to send us the photos and how he captured everything we wanted from our special day.

Overall, we couldn't have been happier. We highly recommend Brad; you will not be disappointed!

Many thanks,

James & Jen Thornton

Better than we could’ve asked for!

Brad was absolutely amazing, we could not recommend him more! The pictures are incredible and we were so so happy that we chose him as our photographer! There were a few things that were not easy for him (our three year old being one of them haha and the early sunset and late wedding meaning there was not much time for photos with natural light, oh and surprise singing waiters) but Brad and was amazing throughout he made sure to reassure us and not only that he went out of his way to get to know our daughter so she would feel comfortable around both himself and the camera! He captured so many beautiful moments and he’s such a creative person! We had seen his work before booking him and leading up to the wedding and we knew we wanted some of his artistic shots and we could not be happier with the results! He made sure to keep in touch with us in the build up to the wedding, he really does think of everything and put your mind as a couple at ease! All the photos are amazing, he was coming up with ideas throughout the day, we cannot say enough good things about him! We had guests saying how brilliant he was, we are so glad we had him as our photographer and would recommend him to anyone else looking!

Wouldn't have had anybody else!

Brad was one of the first suppliers we booked for our wedding. I came across him on instagram and was following him for quite a while as my husband and I were really impressed with the photos captured and how they were edited. It's always scary making your decision on picking a photographer because they will capture photos that'll last a life time. As it was such an important step to make, initially it was quite scary so I entered Brad's giveaway hoping that we would win and he would make the contact haha! What a result! And to be honest I don't know what I was afraid of!

So, Brad, where do we start? ‘Thank you’ honestly doesn’t do, what you did any justice. You were absolutely incredible on our wedding day as well as being so helpful before and afterwards.

We know Essex isn't the area that you specialise in and the fact that you showed excitement about our wedding was such a positive and the fact that it was a bit of a distant never bothered you. We aren’t normally ones for photos but you made the whole process seem so effortless, easy and fun! Right from the morning up to the evening, we were your priority and you really wanted to capture the best photos for us. You’re such a nice, easy going and down to earth guy who we got on with so well and couldn’t think of anyone else to capture our special day.

Even our guests commented on how great and lovely you were. Every time we look back we are reminded of how amazing you were and how much fun we had together. You really were a HUGE part of our day and we will be forever grateful! Thank you so so much, we miss you already!

Honestly, I couldn't recommend Brad enough and anyone who books him will be in safe hands and will have a blast!
