WEDDING

SESSION GUIDE

HEY YOU

Gabby x

I'm Gabby; a story telling photographer, that takes an un-intrusive, natural approach to capturing your special day.

For relaxed couples, who want to re-live their day exactly how it is.

Don't like overly posed photos or awkward situations? Neither do I.

 

With 12+ years within the industry; and a professional photographic studio based in Wrexham, North Wales, I now photograph couples and families across the UK, as well as internationally for destination weddings.

 

Your wedding day is about you, and as your photographer I capture what matters to you: Raw emotion, Laughter, tears and goosebumps.

Capturing feelings and honest photos, as well as what's visual to the eye.

  • Can I bring other family members?
    What’s that saying, too many cooks in the kitchen? Intimate family settings work best.

But please, no cousins of cousins.
  • What if I am too tired for the session?
    As a mama myself, the chances are - you will be. But, thats why you book me. Just turn up and I will do all the work. You can sit back and relax.
  • Can I bring my other children?
