About Us - Gemma Leese Photography

A Little About Us


Hello and welcome to GLP!  


We are Gemma and David, a daughter and father, two photographer team.  We both started our photography degrees in 2004 on the same day, same class and even had to introduce each other to our fellow students (a very embarrassing moment for Gemma!).  We are proud graduates from Staffordshire University with a BA (Hons) in Photography.


We are based in Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire and cover weddings across Staffordshire, Cheshire, Shropshire, Lancashire and further afield. 

  
Our Style


We take great pride in our professional, but friendly relationship with our clients.  Your pre-wedding shoot and meeting allow us to build rapport and trust which are a vital part of how we work.  We are not just capturing your wedding day, we are helping to settle the nerves, arranging your dress, fastening your button holes or a spare pair of hands to hold your drink or bouquet, all with a friendly smile!


"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 testament 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."

Throughout your special day we work in a natural, documentary style to tell the story of your day.  We remain unobtrusive to capture the precious moments, the details and the emotion as your day unfolds.  We cover both parties preparations to your first dance.  While we mainly work in a natural, candid manner to capture real moments as they happen, we also cover a small number of requested group photographs and a relaxed portrait session with you and your partner. 


"Gemma and David really are the dream photography team!! We couldn’t have wished for two more lovely people to capture our special day! Even though it rained throughout the majority of our day Gemma and David managed to capture every special moment in the most beautiful way! Not only are you both extremely talented and work so hard you made everyone feel at ease and we could not be happier with the outcome! All of our friends and family have commented on how fabulous our photo highlights are and we cannot wait to see the rest! We cannot thank you enough for capturing and sharing our special day with us!
