Get to Know Me
I'm Georgia / Gigi / G, and I'm a 20-something year old, full time & self taught wedding photographer. Born and raised in a small seaside town in Suffolk, I'm currently living in the centre of the beautiful city of Norwich - my favourite place. I really am a 'simple pleasure' kinda gal, but if you ask my friends, they'll probably tell you I have my 'extra' moments, like the time I wore a pair of iridescent bunny ears on my 24th birthday night out, cos #sass…
I've got a real affection for nostalgia, and I love all sorts of music from the 70s, 80s and 90s. You could say I'm a film buff, but that's kinda lame innit. Drinking milky coffee and listening to music is my second biggest pass time, next to watching reruns of Friends. I adore both people and doggos, but not one more than the other. Italian food is my kryptonite, so if you say "you want pizza?" the answer is always gonna be "yeah duh."

Forming a friendship with my couples is so important to me. I'm always texting them, emailing them or meeting them for a coffee. I believe that by getting to know each other, we're gonna feel a heck of a lot more comfortable on the day, and in turn my creativity flows far more naturally when every one's comfortable. By forming that connection prior to your day, I hope that your guard comes down, ultimately making your photos far more authentic and true to you, than they otherwise would've been.
And because I love to shoot in an authentic way, I'm always discreet - but I'm not invisible. I socialise with your guests on the day, I bust a move alongside you, and I'll even run errands for you during the prep. I'm moral support, I'm a bad joke teller, I'm the one that tries to floss (badly) - I'm involved. This is because I enjoy life, you see. Emotion, laughter, creating images that display your eccentricities, and love for one another. Then there's all the other stuff going on around you that you haven't had time to acknowledge. I'll be there for it all, because that stuff gives me life!
When shooting your couples portraits, your comfort zone is my priority. Some couples love being romantic, gazing in to each other's eyes and hopping over fences to get "the shot" - but some don't. We'll keep it true to who you are. I’ll direct you, engage with you, and ask you questions. But how you choose to react to that is entirely up to you. As for the rest of the day, I keep it totally documentary. I'll never interrupt and change plans. However, if you're in the middle of dessert but the sunset outside is absolutely crackin' - I may just double check with you to see if you wanna pop outside together and make the most of it!
