Gareth was so lovely and a total gem

We booked Gareth at short notice due to a change in date and our original photographer wasn't available. He was very flexible and worked with myself and John to capture some beautiful pictures. We are booking him for my dad's birthday in September as we got along so well. Thanks so much for your service.

Ben & Sarah's wedding

We hired Gareth due to my knowledge of his work and talents.
During the lead up to the wedding Gareth was in full contact with us to make sure he had an understanding of how we would like our day to be captured, right down to the finer details.

On the day of our wedding, Gareth arrived at the venue early, giving himself plenty of time to plan ideal shots and decide on the best areas to capture the day to his best ability.

A main aspect we wanted included in the package was bridal prep, during this process Gareth made my wife and her bridal party feel totally at ease and was able to capture real life moments working around the chaos of the bridal suite.

Throughout the ceremony Gareth was taking photographs capturing the key moments that meant the most to us.

We asked Gareth if he could take control of the group shots after the ceremony, he was able to do this with great patience and the shots turned out amazingly, honesty, we couldn’t be happier with how he handled this part of the day!

Gareth was able to capture some excellent real life shots, throughout the day and during the reception, which we feel a lot of photographers miss.

Gareth made sure myself and my wife were happy with his work throughout the entire day before leaving. On a whole Gareth is professional, reliable, an outstanding photographer, we feel that because of his hard work we get to relive our day through his photos! Especially since the day goes so quickly and becomes one big blur!

We would highly recommend Gareth as a wedding photographer! Brilliant photographer!!!!

Fantastic experience

We were so happy with Gareth from Garillaphotography. He was friendly and helpful from the first contact. We had a micro wedding with only four guests which Gareth managed really well, tailoring a package for us and really listening to the kind of day we were having and meeting all our needs as well as our expectations. The photographs are beautiful and really capture the essence of our wedding day. We couldn’t have been happier, he is such a nice guy!

Amazing service

Amazing!!
We had our wedding photos taken by Gareth in the middle of the awkward covid situation, he went above and beyond to get all the shots we requested and scoped out the venue before hand, as the venue was very picky on where we could go. Gareth took charge and made our day relaxed, friendly and professional. We had our wedding reception at home in the garden and Gareth took the most beautiful shots in the surroundings we had. Everybody was happy and Gareth took the most amazing and natural photos. I did request more images of my mum as she was terminally ill and he took the most beautiful photos I will cherish forever.
I recommend Gorilla Photography 110% as Gareth took all the requested photos and I never need to look back and think oh I didn’t get that shot.

Thank you Gareth, for making our day so memorable and being so helpful and professional.

Gorgeous photos - very natural

We booked Gareth through a friend after we saw their album. Lovely natural photos of our day. We got a highlight movie which was a lovely surprise. He was worth every penny we spent. A total gentleman. Thank you

Really impressed with the style and video was great

We found Gareth through a mate of mine who had booked an engagement shoot with him. He was booked out at first but had a cancellation after a couple of weeks and kindly reached out to us to see if we still needed someone. Booked him on the stop so my jobs were sorted. The weather on the day was great and he even put up a drone and got some amazing shots of our friends and family. If our budget was bigger I would have definitely got him to do video too but it was a nice touch for some drone shots of me and the Mrs.
