A little more about me..

Hi there, my name’s Gary Derbridge, and I have the most awesome job in the world! I have always loved working with people, and being the part of one of the most special days in someones life is pretty amazing! In experience terms, I already have 8 years in the industry under my belt with over 300 weddings photographed, so compared to some I am probably seen as ancient.. However at only 25 years old, I know I still bring fresh, modern and forward thinking ideas to every wedding bringing out your personality in your wedding photographs!

In my opinion, choosing the correct wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions leading up to your big day. Who ever you pick has got to be able to instantly relax you, bring your unique personality out, and take charge of all of your friends and family whilst ensuring everyone still has a great day! Oh, and take some nice photos too. Not so easy hey? That’s why, I have attached an “About Me” page, as I want you to find out a bit more about who I am, and see if this is exactly what you are looking for. Also, check out my Portfolio page and see if the work is what you are looking for? If it all matches up, hopefully we can have a chat, and I can find out all about your big day!

I just want to thank you for our gorgeous photos & for all the work you put into our special day. It was great fun working with you & trying out our ideas! I still don’t know how you managed to remember everyone’s names when organising us all & everyone has commented how professional & enthusiastic you were. But best of all is the photos! We love them, from the standard group shots to the silly ‘Sarah pose’ ones, & especially the more creative evening shots. It’s almost a shame I can’t get married again to get more done.
Sarah & Simon, Great Wakering
We wanted to say that we are absolutely delighted with all the photographs. You’ve captured every moment in such a way that it brings back all the feelings from the day just by looking at the image – from the morning nerves of the Bride, to the emotion in the church, to the party atmosphere in the evening. For somebody who could be considered as quite early on in their career, you have an amazing demeanour and not only made Aaron and I feel at ease, but you showed such professionalism and incredible organisation, particularly with our large number of guests. In fact, many of our wedding guests commented on what a fantastic job you did – “he really knows what he’s doing” was a recurrent comment throughout the day! Your desire for the best possible shots shone through and is clear for all to see in the final images. We can’t wait to show our album off! We really do wish you all the best for the future and will be recommending you to everybody.
Hayley & Aaron, Southend-on-Sea
