About

Ollie Gyte Photography is a studio in Southport, Merseyside, that specialises in weddings.

Galleries that make your face ache from smiling!

I'm Ollie, the pizza-mad, welly-wearing, CrossFit fanatic and proud dad of three (two of which are fluffy fur babies). Oh, and did I mention that I'm also an utter photography legend?

You know that feeling of being completely at ease with your wedding photography?

STOP BROWSING!

That's what I aim to deliver - so put a stop to your browsing and let me take care of everything!

Now, let's get down to the nitty-gritty.

Things I will do:

✅ Capture the day as naturally as possible.

✅ Take group photos but make them quick and fun.

✅ Portraits will be fun and no more than 15/20mins.

✅ I will keep to the natural flow of the day, making sure you don’t have to pose and kill the vibe every 23 seconds.

✅ Be a photographer that is like a friend, and you can approach with any concerns.

Things you won’t do on your wedding day with me:

❌ Spend hours away from your guests.

❌ I will not make you gaze into each other's eyes.

❌ I won’t kill the vibe.

❌ I will not boss you or your guest around.

Some important tidbits about me: I've been nominated for Best North West Wedding Photographer in 2022. More importantly, I'm a pro at catching sweets with my mouth (no, really, it's a hidden talent), and if it were socially acceptable, I'd wear wellies every single day of the year. And let's not forget my love for dogs - I can't get enough of those furry creatures!

Countless couples have described me as a Ninja Photographer, and I absolutely love that! It pretty much sums up my working style, minus the wall-hanging and high jumping (although I must admit, I have been known to climb a tree or two for the perfect shot).

But don't worry, amidst all the quirkiness, I take your wedding photography seriously. From the moment you book with me until the day I deliver your stunning galleries, I'll keep the process smooth, stress-free, and totally chill. So, what are you waiting for? Let's make some magical memories together!

Exceptional Service and Company !

Ollie and Kate were amazing throughout the whole day!

Me and my Husband are not one for photos and were worried about having to pose for photographs.

Ollie made the whole process run smoothly from start to finish. He had Kate come along as a second photographer and she was so lovely.

We haven't had our photos back yet and cannot wait to see them as we know that Ollie will smash it out of the park !

If you want a amazing photographer and experice Ollie is the best person for the job. You can tell he absolutely loves his job and it was a pleasure to have him and Kate along for the ride.

Ollie Gyte - Simply the Best

Can't recommend Ollie highly enough. We couldn't be happier with the final photos and showreel that Ollie provided. He made us both feel completely comfortable on the day, and in the lead up. Ollie really is an artist with the way he's able to capture the spirit of the day, us as a couple, the different personalities of our guest, and those little quirky moments that people love to remember. Thank you once again Ollie for everything, book now :-)

Amazing from start to finish

Ollie was amazing from start to finish. From the build up with our engagement shoot Ollie really helped to relax and put us at ease. He was very professional and even managed to capture photos of us and our dog, who sadly couldn’t join us during the wedding. He was amazing on the day and helped keep us calm. We barely even knew he was there throughout the day. All our guests loved both him and Dave and they got some amazing shots that we will cherish forever.

Smashing guy and awesome photographer

As soon as we saw Ollie's portfolio, we knew he was the photographer for our wedding. Our brief was probably a bit stripped down compared to most weddings but this didn't seem to impact his enthusiasm and passion for the job. Communication throughout was excellent and he even flagged up things we hadn't thought of.

On the day, he was polite, professional and friendly. His 'ninja' style came into its own and he was very discreet which meant our guests could relax and enjoy themselves.

Now we have the photos and slideshow, we couldn't be happier that we found Ollie. All our family and friends our super impressed too. Highly recommend - Ollie is the right ninja for your wedding!!

You’ll hit the jackpot with Ollie Gyte!

We are absolutely over the moon with our wedding photos from Ollie. From the moment we contacted him, he was such a joy to work with. As one of the biggest and most important wedding vendor bookings, it was great to have such an easy booking process and Ollie was very accommodating and supportive throughout our whole experience. We knew we wanted “natural” unposed photos to document our day and that is exactly what we got, they perfectly capture the essence of our personalities and the personalities of our guests.
He has such a calming, reassuring presence on the day, helping to put a stressed bride at ease! Ollie is full of positivity and energy yet most of the time you aren’t even aware he’s there clicking away on the camera. The ideal balance you need on the day! We cannot thank him enough for everything and would very highly recommend him and his team for your special day.

If you need a wedding photographer then look no further

Ollie was the photographer at a wedding I was bridesmaid for, and I knew I wanted to book him for our wedding straight away. We are not the kind of people who are natural around a camera and we wanted more relaxed, candid photos of our day with just a few posed ones. Ollie delivered all of this and more. He put us at ease from the moment he arrived and blended into the day perfectly. We paid for a second photographer which was so worth it, Ollie and Dave work so well together and we barely knew they were there, which is amazing when you see the shots they were able to get! On top of this we had a videographer, who Ollie had not worked with before, but you would've never known this. Ollie and our videographer worked together so well and bounced off each other. We can't thank Ollie enough for the photos we have to look back on and remember the day. I would 100% recommend Ollie to anyone.

The Real MVP of Photography

We can, hand on heart, say that Oli was the best Photographer we could have ever picked for our wedding day. From the day we booked him, he’s always been part of ‘The Team’ from start to finish. We had our wedding back in May and Oli has been incredibly supportive and helpful on the day, especially when the madness kicked off in the morning. He wasn’t just our photographer on the day, he truly felt like a wonderful friend to have around. He’s caught small details on the day that I didn’t even think beforehand that I wanted to see. He managed to perfectly capture our special day. Not once did it feel like he interrupted anything. The shots we’ve received back are absolutely magical, the wedding we’ve always dreamed of having was caught perfectly by Oli. Will always highly recommend him!

Brilliant and fun documentary style photographer

It was an absolute pleasure to have Ollie at our wedding celebration. There was no awkwardness, he made us feel super comfortable while getting our portraits together and the guests all said he was a joy too. I think he has the ability to be in multiple places at once because having seen the photos he captured every single moment and I don’t know how! His documentary style photography is a beautiful way to capture all those hidden moments you don’t see as the bride and groom on the day. Thank you Ollie!

Top photographer, top guy!

We can’t recommend Ollie enough!!

From the beginning, Ollie was so helpful and made the whole process so easy and stress free. We spoke to Ollie via email and he was always quick to reply, which is always reassuring when time pressures of wedding planning are against you! We loved Ollie’s fun, down to earth vibe - he felt like a friend from the onset and that continued throughout our wedding day, it really just felt like he was part of the family by the end of the day! We had a phone call with Ollie in the run up to our wedding which was really helpful and put our minds at ease with regards to how the pictures would be taken, special requests from us etc. On the day, Ollie was there ready and waiting at our ceremony venue. He made everything feel very candid and natural, we never felt like we had to “pose for the camera” which really helped to make us feel comfortable and left us to enjoy every moment without worrying what we looked like on the shots..!
Ollie just completely took the stress away, he really captured the day in the most perfect way, the photographs and slideshow were more than we could have imagined. They really tell a story, and take us back to each moment - we can’t thank him enough.

We thoroughly enjoyed your company, the chats and the giggles! Thank you for being part of our day and capturing it so beautifully - you are one of a kind and we would urge any future couples to book Ollie for their wedding. Thank you again! 💘

Fabulous wedding photographer

What can we say. Ollie was an amazing photographer at our wedding and was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. From our initial meeting he put us at ease and asked what we wanted from the day and he listened to this perfectly. He was amazing with the children and other guests at the wedding and the candid shots in particular were fabulous. Amazing value we were so happy with the finished images and we can't recommend Ollie highly enough. The make up artist asked for Ollie's details so that she could recommend him too. The second photographer Dave was wonderful too. We can't thank ollie enough for our wonderful wedding pactures

Captured our day perfectly!

Ollie was absolutely fantastic! He captured our wedding day so perfectly and we feel every emotion all over again when we look through the photos. He made the whole process super relaxed and easy but also had great attention to detail. We are so happy with the results and would recommend him in a heartbeat. Thank you so much Ollie and of course Big D for the wonderful memories and running with some of our wacky ideas!

Ollie was one of the best wedding decisions we made

We already knew Ollie would be great from looking at his portfolio yet he still managed to exceed our expectations. Ollie went above and beyond, and the results were fantastic! Ollie's diligence was noticed by several guests, who only had compliments for him.

Ollie was very easy to communicate with, he made sure to check in with us in advance on anything that we wanted capturing on the day.

November 22 wedding

Ollie was recommended to me by our wedding venue in the Lake District. We couldn't of asked for a better wedding photographer for our special day. We had a small intimate wedding but Ollie just fitted right in. He was always snapping away but made us feel at ease and hardly noticed he was there (in a good way of course).

We have two young children and Ollie was so accommodating with them. He let our little boy be his "helper" and made him laugh constantly for the most amazing images that we will treasure.

We wanted lots of in the moment images with only a handful of more for formal pictures. This is exactly what we got. Our pictures are perfect and will help us remember our magical day.

If you thinking of booking Ollie then don't hesitate! He is friendly, helpful, professional and so lovely with children.

Great fun guy taking phenomenal photos!

Ollie captured our special day wonderfully.
He blended seamlessly into the background and was so friendly and engaging with friends and family, many of whom commented.
Genuinely a nice guy to have around on your special day and we couldn’t be more pleased with the photos he has produced.
Thank you from Nicola & Amanda x

Easy going professional

Ollie shot our wedding July 2022 and I couldn’t be happier with the photos! He was so lovely from our first meeting all the way up to him leaving us on the evening. He was able to guide us throughout the day on the best poses to do but was also so flexible when we had our own requests. The quality of his work is amazing, he’s captured the finest of details which would of been overlooked on the day if it weren’t for him. I can’t recommend him enough. I also want to shout out our second shooter, Dave who works with Ollie. If you are deciding whether or not to have an additional photographer, do it! It is so worth it. Thank you Ollie!
