Hi, I am Gemma and I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer based in Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties. But I love to travel, so destination weddings is also something that I love to do.
I see wedding photography as telling the beautiful story of your wedding day as it happens. Which is why I work in a creative, documentary style. Wedding photography has changed somewhat over the years, I want to provide my clients with beautiful and honest images, so that they can look over them and be taken back to their wedding day as it happened.
What that means is, I won’t be expecting you and your guests to pose for hours on end. In fact, I’d prefer there be no posing at all, the biggest compliment I get is that your guests think I am also a guest. I’ll happily get a few group shots, and I like to take the happy couple off on their own for a few photos, away from the crowds. But mainly, I’ll blend into the background and photograph your day as it unfolds, honestly and naturally.
Having met lots of pushy photographers at wedding fairs, we were instantly drawn to Gemma's laid back approach and super friendly manner. On the day she was so great, as someone who hates having my photo taken I barely noticed she was there, apart from when she made some incredible suggestions - how many brides get to ride the dodgems and the teacups on their big day! We got married nearly a year ago and still look at the photos all the time. The perfect reflection of our big day.
I can’t praise Gemma highly enough! She’s such a friendly person and made us feel so at ease with the photos and our guests didn’t even realise half of the shots were taken, she blended in perfectly. As for the photos! Amazing! We have memories that we can cherish forever and the quality is outstanding. If you’re looking for someone who will feel more like a friend than a formal photographer and you want natural and beautiful photographs, booking Gemma is a no brainier!
For a full day (from bridal prep through to the first dance) is £1250. This includes all images on a USB, which is presented in a keepsake box. For an album package, the price would £1600.
Wedding and engagement photography. I also do family shoots.
The £1250 package includes me all day from bridal prep through to the first dance. The £1600 package includes all of the above, plus a bespoke high quality 8x10 album.
It depends on the time of year that your wedding is, if it is a Saturday in the summer, get in touch as soon as possible as I book up between 1-2 years in advance.
No, I wouldn't be able to give more than one wedding my full attention and that wouldn't be fair to my couple and would compromise my work.
Yes definitly, my price include an 80 mile round trip. Any further would incur an extra fee.
Further than the 80 mile round trip would be 45p per mile plus accommodation if required.
My style is quite reportage, I love the natural shots, real smiles are the best kind. I also do the forma shots if you want these too.
I use two digital DSLR cameras, both have dual card slots. I use an on camera flash when its time for dancing and I also use two LED external flash if required.
I can be quite stealthy when getting the natural shots
I use an online gallery which is password protected. It enables you to private certain images before you share with your friends and family.
Usually between 6-8 weeks, though I always send through some sneaky peeks in the first week.
No, I will take the best of what I have, edit those and send them over. There will usually be around 500 images.
I usually work alone, but I have an assistant I use if you require a second shooter for the day. This would be an extra £350
Yes, I know several photographers that I would contact, and I am part of a group where I can contact an emergency photographer
I will need your permission in order to publish them on my website. If you do not wish to have them published, this will be detailed in your contract.
No, I charge for the full day, but if you require more or a lot less, I can give you a bespoke quote.
Yes, this would be charge at an hourly rate of £95
Bank transfer and PayPal.
I have quite a relaxed approach, with many of the compliments I get from my couple saying that they felt I was part of the day and shots I had taken they had no idea I had taken, or that it had happened.
