Katie & Dan:

"Thank you so much for being our fabulous photographers, we chose you for a reason and you simply captured our day perfectly! Not only did you exceed our expectations with the photographs you were also a pleasure to be around all day!

Thank you again for the amazing job you did for us."


Sara Pearson – Bromley:

"5 stars don't come close to how wonderful Gemma & David are. They both captured our special day on 8th july 2018 and made my partner Vicky and I feel so at ease. The photo's we have seen so far from our pre shoot and our wedding day are wonderful. We were never made to feel uncomfortable and at times forgot they were both even with us. Once again a massive thankyou to them and I would highly recommend."


Emma Hutchinson:

"We have been wanting to leave a review since our wedding day on the 26th May as Gemma and David were amazing! We met them at a Wrenbury Hall open day and decided within 5 minutes that we wanted them to capture our day. They were so down to earth but also professional. My husband was a little apprehensive about having photos but the pre shoot helped so much and we loved the photos! We have just recieved all of our photos and we are absolutely blown away. What a perfect way to remember a perfect day. We didn't notice they were there all day and they got so many natural photographs of guests enjoying the day. We would 100% recommend them! It was such a fabulous experience having 2 photographers as we felt every special moment was captured! Thanks once again Gemma and David, what a fabulous team you make! Xxx"


Sarah Allot:

"We got married on 11/11/17. Gemma and David were absolutely brilliant - they were able to get some fantastic shots, and some guests commented that they didn't even notice that they were there. Gemma spent the morning with me, and David with Ben. Their knowledge of the run-up to the ceremony was invaluable and really helped us to get everything in place on the day.

We had a pre-wedding shoot in order to get us used to having our pictures taken which made the photos on the day a lot easier. They were open to our ideas and let us have a say in the pictures we had.

I would definitely recommend them to anyone."


Sarah Miles:

"On Saturday we had the pleasure of Gemma and David being our wedding photographers. Both Gemma and David are absolutely fantastic and I have to say for being someone who is very close to her Dad it is so nice to see how they work together. They both made us feel very at ease, nothing was too much trouble and we have loved looking at our wedding highlights today. We cannot now wait for the rest :) thank you very much to you both - we will definitely be recommending you to others xxxx"


Ellie Blundell:

"I can't stress enough how fantastic Gemma & David are. They made everything easy and captured our day perfectly, even though we had quite the list of family photos! The photos are amazing, they really are (& I usually hate all photos of me), Gemma & David listened when we said we preferred more informal shots rather than the more posed ones and made sure that we got plenty of exactly what we wanted! They were also great on the day, constantly checking that we were ok, that we hadn't had enough, letting us know we could take a break if we'd had enough. 
I cannot recommend Gemma & David highly enough, you won't regret choosing them, the photos are amazing and not only that, they are so helpful and friendly that they really will feel like they are part of your day, not getting in the way. And the turn around time is amazing. By the day after our wedding we had our photo highlights video, so we could see some photos almost straight away. And we had the full gallery of almost 1000 photos in just over a month!"


Katy Broadhurst:

Our wedding was on 9th September and it was perfect, Gemma and David are great to work with, really relaxed but professional and do their best to get the photos you want throughout the day. From start to finish they were fab, putting 2 very camera shy people at ease and getting us the most beautiful photographs! Thanks guys! Can't wait to see the full album! xxxx"


"Dear Gemma & David,

I honestly don't know where to start! You were both so amazing on the day and such an absolute pleasure to have there from early doors right up to the bitter end.  It must be an absolutely exhausting day for you both & I can't tell you how truly grateful we are for your patience & jolly smiles from beginning to end!  The shots are absolutely beautiful, we're so happy with them & will think of you both when we flick through our album in years to come! Gemma - I felt so comfortable & at ease around you - a real testiment to your natural, bright energy! And David - Graham told me about the banter you had with the boys at Cholmondley Arms - and the Stoke City chat calmed his nerves! Thank you both so much. 

Best Wishes, Rachel & Graham Winter xxx"

Rachel & Graham


"Gemma did a fantastic job photographing our wedding in September. Her and David spent an afternoon with us for the pre photo shoot which we thought was very useful as it gets you used to the camera so the wedding day is much easier. We have some amazing photos of our wedding and a video of some photos which brings a smile to our faces. They make you so at ease on the day and floated around and got some lovely relaxed photos of us and guests. Would definitely recommend!"

I can honestly say I have ever seen such a fantastic selection of wedding photos! With your level of professionalism , and the care and artistry shown, I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any one thinking of using you. Thanks again, Tony Duffy ( Sams Dad )"

"Gemma and David - thank you for helping make our wedding day so special. The organization and planning of the shoot was excellent including the pre-shoot some weeks before the actual event. The time spent taking pictures on the morning leading up to the wedding itself was thoroughly enjoyable and helped to relax any nerves that we may have had. Having now received the video sequence detailing the pictorial story of the day we are thrilled with the results and the attention to detail. Thank you so much - Gary and Angela Richardson x"

"Thank you so much Gemma for our beautiful pictures from our family portrait. Collected the pictures this morning and they are fantastic x x"



"Gemma and David captured our wedding day in August 2014 perfectly. From the moment we met them at the studio, we knew that the photographs would be beautiful. We have just received our wedding album and we could not be happier. The presentation of the photographs in the album are perfect and the accompanying USB stick is fantastic. The video wedding highlights was a pleasant surprise and captures the day beautifully. Thank you Gemma and David!! We cannot recommend you highly enough. Dan and Becci Trupp August 2014."

Becci & Dan


"David and Gemma, we want to thank you so much for capturing all those special moments at our wedding in March. When we met you at the Wedding Fayre we knew straight away you were the perfect photographers for us and you didnt disappoint. You made us feel so at ease straight away. Even with our hyperactive puppy you were able to take amazing pictures at the pre shoot and were and remained attentive to what we wanted, ideas and pintrest obsessions etc. All friends and family have commented on how fantastic you were on the day guiding them and they love their gallery.
You helped us and guided us through the shoots(as we both didnt like our photo being taken)
Although i definately didnt believe by the end of the day when you said JUST ONE MORE.....!
By both of you shooting you caught so many memories and images that we may not have otherwise seen
The photo video just after the wedding let us live the day all over again and will continue to do so. And having received the album last week brought the biggest smile to both our faces. the end product is just amazing. You have both been so tentative to what we wanted throughout and we are more than pleased that we chose you and you were able to capture the first big magical day of our lives.
You truly are lovely people and deserve the success

Anyone looking for a photographer for any special occassion neednt look any Gemma and David

"We have just taken delivery of our albums, they are fabulous! Gemma and David are amazing, they made everyone feel so relaxed on our wedding day and this really shows in the fantastic pictures.  They are such lovely people, we really can't thank them enough for making our day so special x "

Carryl & Glyn


"I'm so happy we chose Gemma and David to capture our day.  The whole experience from start to finish was professional and friendly.  The pre-shoot is a great opportunity to get familiarised with everything and ideal to see what shots you really want or don't want on the day.  The day itself was perfect and both Gemma and David captured it all, even down to the last elusive shot because of an AWOL uncle.  When we received our album and parent albums we were also blown away, Gemma's very artistic and tells a story perfectly.  Even down to the disks, lovely presented in a box with our photo on.  Attention to detail is phenomenal.  Best decision my husband and I made.  Thank you again xxx "

Claire & Andy Thomas

"I can't praise Gemma and David enough, they worked so hard at our wedding, everybody has commented on how fantastic the pictures are, somehow Gemma and David managed to capture all the treasured moments, the nerves, the excitement and the fun! You both fitted in so well.  We can't thank you enough, even the after sevice has been second to none.  Our wedding day was magical and we treasure the memories you captured for us.  Thank you so much."

"Gemmaleese photography have supported our Parents' Association events (balls, Bollywood nights) for so many years that we try not to remember when we met.  Gemma and David take absolutely beautiful photographs, in our case within only a few minutes.  The company are efficient and lovely to work with.  Our parents order from them and use the company independently for portrait photography.  Thanks guys - our school children love you too (we know that because they come along to you by themselves on our Bollywood night!) Thanks again, Sue, Chair, Newcastle under Lyme Parents Association (Juniors)."


"Gemma and David, just wanted to say a huge thank you again for the amazing job you did of capturing our special day.  All your hard work and effort both in the build up and on the day was second to none, without it ever feeling intrusive.  You were both so professional and easy to work with and we will treasure the memories you captured for us forever.  We would recommend you to others without hesitation.  Thank you again, Gareth and Clare."

Gareth & Clare

"Gemmaleese Photography has worked for Steelworks Performing Arts Academy on a number of occasions.  Without exception they have been utterly professional, courteous and organised.  Their calm and friendly manner is perfect, especially when working with a roomful of excited children in costume, who need to pose and smile for the camera!

The quality of photographs produced for Steelworks, ranging from headshots to action shots of performances, have been beautiful.  Gemma and David have a real knack of capturing 'the moment' and conveying the mood to the viewer.

Steelworks would not hesitate to highly recommend Gemmaleese Photography to anyone wanting quality photographs for any occasion"

Maxine Steel
Director Steelworks

"Thank you so much for the fabulous photo's of my son's wedding.  You are truly amazing photographers."


"Loved the pictures that Gemmaleese Photography took of the cast of The Edge from the Steelworks.  Two of the photographs are now sitting nicely on my fireplace! Nice friendly staff too!!"


"We just wanted to say a massive "Thank you" to both of you for capturing our amazing wedding day, it is difficult to remember seeing you at the wedding as you blended into the background but still managed to capture the most amazing pictures of us and our guests.  All of our photographs are presented in the gallery on the website for all our guests to see which was has been a huge bonus! We have had so many comments from our guests about the quality of the photos, beautiful album and your ability to cabture such natural shots.  We wanted our album and photographs to tell the story of our day and they truly have done that!

Thank you so much Gemma and David"

Claire & Adrian

Clare & Ade

"Gemma has a naturally gifted eye for a good photograph.  She has a down to earth approach, really puts you at ease and captures the moments that revitalise a memory for you.  We had photos taken at home with young children and two staffies! and she made everyone feel very relaxed and caught them all just when was needed.

I have also used Gemma for photos at our Newcastle-under-Lyme Junior School Parents' Association Ball and I received only positive comments about the group or couple photos that were purchased.

Very accommodating, attentive to detail, energetic, genuine, commited and inspiring, I would strongly recommend Gemma to anyone."             


"Gemma, Steve and I would like to thank you so much for our stunning photos.  We had such a wonderful day and you captured it brilliantly.  I know we will treasure them for years to come.  We wish you the best of luck with your business and professional future.  You will be very successful if you can make all your clients as happy as us!  We heartily recommend you to anyone considering booking a wedding photographer or family portrait photographer.....we say, just take one look at Gemma's fantastic photos, they speak for themselves!!!"

Lynda & Steve, Newcastle-under-Lyme

"We're extremely pleased with our photographs.  Gemmaleese photography provides a very personal and professional service.   The shoot was suprisingly relaxing and we are pleased with the variety of traditional and comtemporary photographs that were taken.  Gemma interacted really well with our children and took numerous photographs ensuring that the 'perfect moment' was captured for a lifetime.  We are very thankful to gemmaleese photography and are sure to return for future shoots."
