Gary's first wedding was on 4th September 1981 - from that day he was hooked. Creating and capturing wedding memories is a wonderful feeling. It gives great satisfaction and allows him to deal with his most favorite of topics ..... people.
An Album .. A collection of portraits to capture your memories
Being a portrait photographer by nature, his approach is to relax the bride and groom with the aim to getting the couple to enjoy themselves. " A happy relaxed couple will feel and look more natural ... it's a natural look that will make your album."
Lighting and locations are obviously important to a good portrait but an inner confidence is the key. His skills are in creating that confidence. Most people are intimidated by the thought of having a portrait taken, but with a little coaching you will find the experience memorable. One of the best tips that I can pass on to any bride is simple .. don't try to act natural .. feel natural
