UK Documentary Wedding Photographer

Jude Photography

Hi there! My name is Gary and I’m a Documentary wedding photographer based in the UK. I approach weddings with the target of wanting to tell a story. The need to take powerful images as I am your witness to help show you exactly what happened throughout the day (after a few drinks, you may need this).

Nothing else compares to the look you capture and the look of feeling like you were there. So I stay close, listening to the next joke OR catching an emotional embrace. This is all achieved in an unobtrusive way and a lot of the time you will not know I am there (the fact I wear a waistcoat and tie to blend in with your guests, certainly helps with this).

Real Moments

Being a documentary wedding photographer I just can’t stand still and wait for something to happen. I feel I owe it to the couples who book me to work my a**e off (it makes for a very good cardio burn anyway). I just love to constantly be on the move, getting in close with guests to hear the jokes and laughs. This always results in very candid, unscripted raw moments.

The Dance Floor!

THE DANCE FLOOR! I bloody love the dance floor. This part of the day can really capture those natural, unscripted moments (with the help of some tequila of course). This is when my flashes come out to capture some creative frames. Still approaching this in a wedding photojournalism way, I just let you and your guests go crazy while I jump in and out to capture the candid, fun moments.
