natural, modern, storytelling


Enjoy the day & excitement with loved ones. I’ll capture it all










 Natural documentary wedding photography can be used to capture every aspect of your day. And all without interupting your celebrations

I love documenting people, the moments, the details, the mood and ambience of a wedding. On your wedding day, it is important that I create a natural, relaxed atmosphere one which you can feel comfortable with. Wedding day stories captured with passion, creativity and naturally with an unwavering commitment to excellence. What sets me apart . I’m all about capturing those fleeting, unnoticed moments between two people surrounded by loved ones.

Emotions lie at the heart of every wedding and with over twenty years experience i’m still driven to capture those genuine moments that make each weddiing unique.

Hi, i’m Gary and i’m so pleased you’ve discovered my site.

I specialise in natural documentary wedding photography with the focus on capturing your story in the most authentic romantic yet beautiful way, creating memories that will last forever.

Over my extensive career I have photographed at some of the most luxurious wedding venues. Middleton Lodge, Rudding park & Sneaton Castle and bring with me a wealth of experience to every wedding.

What sets me apart? My drive and commitment to produce images that reflect you and your day. Capturing each and every wedding as it unfolds with little or no interuption to help make your special day unforgetable.

My Approach & Style

North Yorkshire wedding photographer, documenting your wedding day to capture natural, spontaneous moments that will mean more to you than anything posed or staged. I work discretely, mingle with your guests to capture genuine moments and emotions to create beautiful and meaningful photographs. The tears, fun and laughter that you’ll treasure for years to come. Spend time with family, friends and loved ones, forget about me and enjoy every minute of your day.


This is the way I shoot, totally relaxed and natural. I capture true real life moments of your day as they unfold. The best images are those that you may never have been taken, candid portraits and real interactions.


Do you want to enjoy your day with family and friends without being asked to stop and pose for the camera? Are photo’s of all your family & friends just as important.

I capture your day naturally, as it all unfolds without interuption to your day


I’m not one for the wedding photography cliches. I want to capture a moment, a scene in a unique way either through composistion, angle or light. it’s my goal to creatively capture your day without controlling you or the scene.

Gary did an amazing job photographing our wedding. He is professional and makes you feel comfortable and at ease in front of the camera. He showed snippets of our pictures quickly after the wedding with the rest of the pictures following soon after. We love the pictures taken from our wedding and will treasure them forever.

WOW! That’s all I have to say. Gary was absolutely incredible throughout our wedding planning, and the pictures are just breathtaking. We couldn’t have picked a better photographer for our special day.
If you want the perfect pictures, Gary is your guy!

We were delighted to have had so many unique moments from our wedding in August 2023 captured so timelessly in Gary’s signature style. Gary met with us at our venue prior to the wedding to talk through what we wanted for the day and his expertise and guidance put us both completely at ease. We wanted natural shots and Gary’s photography style was the perfect fit for us. On the day Gary blended so seamlessly in with the wedding guests, disappearing behind the scenes, capturing those unpredictable and unforgettable moments which we now have documented forever. Our photographs arrived very quickly, within just a few weeks of the wedding and were in a lovely wooden presentation box along with an accompanying USB stick which contained hundreds of memories from our special day.
Gary is extremely kind, friendly and professional, literally the best decision we made for our wedding and I would highly recommend!

Experience & Knowledge

Having now spent two decades in the wedding industry as a UK, and Whitby wedding photographer, I’m confident in saying that I have seen it all. Today, I still find it unbeliebable to think I have photographed well over 500 weddings all over the Uk & Europe. 

It’s been a crazy and wonderful journey, and over those years I’ve picked up a ton of knowledge. From the early planning stages, to the day itself and afterwards. I can safely say I have the answers and solutions to any situation that arises and i’m ready to help every step of the way. I don’t just see myself as just a Whitby wedding photographer on the day and can step in when you’re concerned about anything to make sure everything runs smoothly and on time!

When you book me to photograph your wedding you’re not just getting an esablished wedding photographer, you’re getting someone who can also have a  influence on the successful flow of the day which I believe is hugely important when you’re booking your chosen wedding photographer.
