Excellent service

We couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our special day than Gary Williams. From the moment we met him, his professionalism and friendly approach made us feel like he was part of the family. Gary's experience and talent shone through in every shot he captured, effortlessly seizing those genuine, heartfelt moments that made our day truly unforgettable.

What truly amazed us was the speed at which Gary processed the photos. To have them ready for viewing the next day was beyond our expectations and allowed us to relive the magic of our wedding day immediately.

Gary's dedication to his craft is evident in every aspect of his work. His passion for storytelling translates seamlessly into his photography, capturing not just images but emotions that resonate deeply.

We are grateful to have found Gary, not only for his exceptional talent but also for his genuine care and commitment to ensuring a stress-free experience.

Brilliant candid photographer

Gary covered our wedding at Wasing Park in April 2024, and he was absolutely fantastic. He predominantly shot in our preferred documentary style and produced a gallery of candid images that really captured the emotion of our big day, while he also catered to our request for a set amount of staged family portraits. We're delighted with the resulting library of images (available in monochrome, as well as high-definition), while he also produced an excellent video slideshow of his favourite photographs.

Gary was transparent about working hours, rates (midweek, and out-of-season) and deliverables during our initial meeting, and took the time to learn more about us both. He then went into further detail when discussing the logistics and requirements of our wedding day in our planning meeting, and confirmed our specific requests, shot lists etc.

On the day, he arrived at the venue early to scope out the location and create contingency plans in case of poor weather (which were needed!). He was professional, charming and polite throughout, making us feel at ease despite us not being comfortable in front of the camera. He was not intrusive or pushy, but was also clear on his instructions and suggestions in order to maximise the key moments of our day.

Gary communicated closely with our venue event manager to help remove unnecessary stress, and was quick to adapt plans when required. He checked that we were both happy and didn't require any more photographs before heading off, and edited all our images incredibly quickly (three days!). We would definitely recommend Gary to anyone looking for a wedding photographer specialising in documentary-style images.

A fantastic experience

Gary was absolutely amazing and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.

We hired Gary to photograph our wedding in Twickenham and can't thank him enough for the all of the hard work he put in for us - he really helped put us at ease. We're thrilled with how the photos turned out and he was so nice to deal with.

Made the right choice!

My husband and I chose Gary to be the photographer at our registry office wedding. We definitely made the right choice and I highly recommend him!
Gary has gone above and beyond on our special day arriving early to find the best places for beautiful pictures, looking after our small wedding party, capturing natural moments without getting in the way, and making sure everyone was comfortable while posing. Photos came out absolutely beautiful, and the slide show with a song he picked got a few of us tearing up with emotions.
We are very grateful for receiving the photos so quickly - edited and uploaded in one day! - as that meant we could share them with family members before they left the country.
Throughout the wedding (and after) Gary was calm, friendly, professional, and a pleasure to deal with.

We couldn't recommend Gary highly enough!

We couldn't be happier with our choice of Gary as our wedding photographer. From start to finish, he was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to ensure every moment was beautifully captured. Gary immediately got a feel for our family and gave us exactly what we wanted while also guiding us to fantastic ideas we hadn't considered, which turned out to be some of our favorite moments.

He truly captured the spirit of us and our wedding. His fun character made it seem as though he was always part of the group, making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. Gary's efficiency and reliability allowed us to enjoy our special day without any worries.

The photos were promptly packaged and edited beautifully, uploaded to a very slick website where we could view, share, or order prints.

We couldn't recommend Gary highly enough!

Really went above and beyond

Gary was absolutely fantastic and we'd highly recommend him as a photographer.

He really went above and beyond for our wedding. Not only did he take fantastic photos of our special day but he also helped us to consider some of the finer points we hadn't thought about, coordinating with us beforehand and gently guiding us during, and all in a comforting and friendly way.

He was also especially accommodating in terms of his time and suggested some really lovely and creative shots as well.

Thank you so much Gary, we both really appreciate all the effort.

Fantastic photographer

Gary was an absolute delight to work with from start to finish. He was very professional in his communication before the event. On the day Gary was fun and engaging and made having photos taken enjoyable and put us both at ease. We got the photos back very quickly and they are everything I had hoped for and more. I can not rate Gary highly enough. Thank you for capturing our legal wedding so beautifully.

Best photographer

We can't recommend Gary enough! Not only did he capture our wedding day beautifully (seriously, the photos look like they came straight out of a magazine!), but he was also incredibly helpful during the planning process. Even though we're not exactly models, he made us feel completely at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to get the best shots. Thank you for everything, Gary!

Highly Recommend

I am so glad my partner found Gary for our wedding photos. As someone who isn't necessarily comfy in front of a camera, I know first hand that it can come across in the pictures. Gary's relaxed nature was infectious and I was instantly at ease with him. His efficiency and experience came across to everyone in our wedding party, with compliments from all who attended.

The pictures are something out of a fairy tale. I could not feel happier when flicking through them, he has captured the emotion of the day and the happinesses of the day and I credit this entirely to Gary's adaptability, demeanour and charisma.

I highly recommend Gary Williams photography to anyone searching and can without a doubt say , no matter the reason for the shoot, no matter the location, your photos will be breathtaking.

A superb photographer

Gary arrived promptly and had a wonderful personality, putting everyone at ease, even taking pictures of my daughter, who hates being photographed. His timing and suggestions were impeccable, and we couldn't recommend him enough. An excellent photographer.

Fantastically natural wedding photos

Gary, we honestly can't thank you enough, not only for the fantastic photos but for how comfortable you made us feel. We aren't naturals in front of the camera but wow you have done an amazing job. We couldn't have asked for anything more, you have exceeded our expectations. Thank you so much. 10/10!!!
