Great photos and an expert, which, rather than making me feel self-conscious and awkward – as I’d expected to be honest - was relaxed and pleasant. Gemma is very professional but also very easy to get on with.
The service was good – the venue was well chosen, offering a variety of different backgrounds. I thought that Gemma was chatty and easy to get along with but I guess that's quite an important as a photographer: a grumpy or sullen photographer would not put people at their ease!
And the end result was great shots in a variety of different poses: I think variation is the key word.
I used Gemma in March of this year to take some photographs of my daughters and myself. The venue was Wollaton Hall in Nottinghamshire which provided a good mixture of backgrounds and photographic opportunities to showcase Gemma's skills.
Gemma obviously knows what she is doing and this showed with her attention to detail, punctuality and all round professionalism. She is also very easy to get along with as she has an easy going and relaxed nature which made me feel relaxed and at ease throughout the entire time.
The shots that she produced were outstanding - she even managed to capture some Deer in the background in one composition which has since become my most favourite photograph of my daughters. I would definitely use Gemma again and I would recommend her to anyone.
Really enjoyed the session with Gemma.
Beforehand I had felt a bit self-conscious but Gemma's friendly manner made it easy for me to relax. I loved the venue and felt comfortable with the locations Gemma chose for her shots.
Very pleased with the naturalness of the photos and feel they capture the 'essence' of me.
I found Having some quality Photos when setting up a dating profile was definitely an advantage. The photo shoot with Gemma was fun, enjoyable and I soon felt comfortable in front of the camera.
I thought Gemma was a lovely person and also made me very comfortable with the photos taken. They helped my confidence with using Plenty of Fish and helped me to get chatting to people.
In hindsight I would have done more crazy photos than normal ones as I’m a little bit wild and I think it would have shown my personality more but the quality of the photos was good.
Tell me what you think
Gemma kindly took some natural shots of myself and partner preparing and serving burgers at one of our mobile catering gigs this year. It’s not the most glamourous of jobs serving burgers, but Gemma managed to get some high definition quality shots, which we were able to use for advertising purposes via Facebook and our own website. We were really happy with the way she captured the angles ensuring the focus was on our product, rather than our faces. We would highly recommend using Gemma.
Gemma took photos for our company website. She spent an hour with us at University Park, finding good locations, working very hard to get a great shot. We really enjoyed the experience and laughed a lot and we ended up with a really lovely set of photos to put on the website. I'd definitely recommend Gemma - she was professional, friendly, hard working and very quick to get the finished photos back to us.
Gemma got some great professional headshots for my e-book author picture, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. She put me at ease from the offset and the end pictures were just what I was looking for. Would highly recommend!
We all really enjoyed the shoot with Gemma – both Eliza (4) and Jack (2) were at ease with her very quickly and Gemma encouraged them to play in a familiar environment to ensure she captured as many natural shots as possible with two small children! Gemma had lots of tips beforehand as well in terms of venue, what to bring and how to help the children relax during the shoot.
Really happy with the photos from the shoot, some gorgeous shots of both Eliza and Jack separately as well as together – they were both very natural and relaxed with her.
Would highly recommend Photography by Gem.
Had a fab time at a family photoshoot with Gemma. She was so patient and good with my little boy who'd chosen to be grumpy that day! Gemma spent lots to time trying out different settings and props to get the best out us. The end results; photos are amazing! We now have a beautiful black and white canvas that takes pride of place in our living room. Couldn't be more pleased with the outcome. Would definitely recommend.
Gemma was great and really put me at ease. The photos looked great and really gave me a professional image for my social media and my business profile. The time flew by and the shots that I got were really great representations.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Gemma, her professionalism and passion for what she does really shines through and certainly comes out in the quality of the photographs she takes.
Gemma produced very professional photos for my website and business profile. I felt well-directed on the day and the photo shoot was really fun – despite the weather!
Very happy with the final result – would highly recommend Photography by Gem for work photos..
