Get to Know Me
I'm Georgia / Gigi / G, and I'm a 20-something year old, full time & self taught wedding photographer. I shot my first wedding back in 2015, and from that moment on the fire in my belly was lit. I have an insatiable appetite for this job, and when I'm not doing it, I miss it like crazy. I'd love to go back and tell my 15 year old self where I'd end up. However, I also kind of wouldn't want to spoil the surprise for her.
I live the quiet life here in rural Norfolk, just a 20 minute drive from the beautiful city of Norwich. I split my time between work, my partner, family & friends, and the dog - Dexter (that dude gives the best cuddles). 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…

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 you, your boundaries, quirks and sense of humour, I'm gonna feel a heck of a lot more comfortable in your company, and in turn you'll feel more comfortable in mine. I've found that my creativity flows naturally when I'm comfortable, and I hope that by knowing me, most guards you had will come down, ultimately allowing for your photos to be far more authentic than they would have been.
And because I love to shoot in that authentic, documentary way, I'm always discreet - but I'm not invisible. I social 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. Cos I enjoy life, you see. I enjoy emotion. I enjoy laughter. I love 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. And 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!
