Hello!!  & a big warm welcome to my website....

 

My name is Gemma & I'm a Documentary Wedding & Lifestyle photographer based in Swanscombe Kent. My passion is & has always been photography.. I just didn't realise this until a few year back... Because I never set out to become a photographer, in truth the years following my degree in fashion I worked in Womenswear Buying - which I enjoyed but it never felt 'me'.. That was until I discovered Instagram in 2011. I was then on maternity leave & spent literally hours photographing everything & everyone I could around me... I instantly had the photography bug & quickly realised that 'this' felt very right for me. So Christmas 2012 saw me buy my first camera. From that moment I've never looked back. I've spent the last 5 years furiously practicing, researching & honing my skills as a photographer - its not always been easy with the technicalities of photography being the hardest to grasp -  but the joy of capturing a moment that will never happen again & the reactions from my clients is what keeps me hooked!!!

 

I can honestly say that me becoming a mother to my children & choosing to fulfil my passion to be a professional photographer was the best two things I have ever done.. I have loved being able to look back on all of the photos I have taken of them growing up... For me photos are the most precious gift a person can ever own. This is why I want to capture your special moments whether it be your wedding, you & your family or another special occasion.. I want to give you photos that make you smile. I discovered my joy of wedding photography by realising I could give so much more than just the traditional style of photography... Weddings lets be honest are a little hectic & sometimes stressful & so my approach to wedding photography is very natural & relaxed. I much prefer to photograph what actually happens on your day rather than spend ages posing you... I really enjoy to photograph a wedding from the bridal preparations through to your reception.. Its a beautiful thing to see your entire wedding day captured in one gallery.... From the emotions of your family & guests as you both say I do to Aunty Sandra throwing her best shapes on the dancefloor - All these memories are beautiful and I promise you as a bride once myself... there is so much you miss on the day!!  

 

Reliving the best day of your life though all of your images from me is the ultimate honour. I really do hope that you like what you see of my work & I would be delighted to hear from you. Many Thanks for taking time to stop by & hopefully we will speak soon.

Warmest regards Gemma! x
