Natural, emotional wedding photography. Telling the story of your special day, just as it happened.
Your wedding day will be one of the most special days of your life. It will be emotional, surreal, stressful, amazing, and something you will want to remember forever. If you are looking for a photographer who will deliver a gallery of very staged photos, I'll be upfront and say I'm probably not the one for you!
However, if you are looking for a photographer who will:
tell the story of your wedding day in pictures; from the first moments nervously getting ready, to your first kiss as a married couple, to everyone having a blast on the dance floor;
capture photos full of genuine emotions;
allow you and your guests to just be yourselves and have an amazing time;
put you first, and care about you enjoying your day to the full, and not about ordering you around and constantly asking you to 'smile!'
...then hello! Your search may be over, and I'd LOVE to chat about your wedding and hear all about your plans!

It's all about YOU
By the way, this cake was fantastic!
I believe it's really important to 'click' with your wedding photographer. You will be spending significant amounts of time together, and if you get on it will really help you feel comfortable! So here is a little bit about me, so you can see if you think we might be a good match.
My name is Geneviève. You can pronounce it in the English or the French, I'm used to both!
I divide my time between Somerset and west London.
I am married to the beautiful Emma and we have a nine-year-old tabby named Vali, who loves head scratches and food, and a kitten named Tuppence, who we affectionately call 'Tuppence the Terror'...I'll leave you to surmise why!
I love all animals, but I am an unashamed cat lady. I would also love some bunnies, but not sure the cats would agree...
I am a massive Harry Potter fan and actually played quidditch at university. I also love anything Disney and, yes, went on a ‘Disneymoon’ to Orlando after my wedding.
I love to write and have been working on a series of historical novels since I was 17. The first has been rewritten eight times and is currently at 900 pages!
I talk A LOT and have a slightly irreverent sense of humour. Apologies.
I don't take myself too seriously!
And now a little about me...
Let's keep things natural
I would describe myself as a documentary wedding photographer and edit in a light and airy, film-like style. I like to capture events as they unfold - all the love, laughter and little moments. I am friendly and unobtrusive, blending into the background so you can be yourselves, enjoy your day to the full, and I can tell its story.
I think some of the best photos pose themselves and like to keep things as natural as possible. I got married recently, and take it from me - your wedding day with absolutely blur by in a mad rush of emotions, faces, and words. You may not remember all the little moments: your oldest friends crying with laughter at a really bad joke; your uncle pulling some crazy moves on the dance floor; one of your littlest guests chucking confetti all over her sister. But that's where I come in, to capture them for you, so you can remember them forever.
If you'd also like some more traditional photos, hey, that's fine by me! My approach is that it's your day, and if you want to do the group shots and couple shots, let's go for it. We can find a balance which works perfectly for you as a couple.
Genevieve came to photograph our small summer wedding in 2019. She was fantastic the whole day, taking so many pictures without intruding at all - it felt like she was a friend and guest at our wedding! The pictures are all fantastic and Genevieve has been very helpful and accommodating throughout. Cannot recommend her enough!

Where I work...
Where do you want me to work? I'm completely flexible and happy to go wherever the next job takes me. In all my packages, I include travel within 50 miles of my home bases in London and Somerset, but if you want me to photograph your wedding in Edinburgh, or Italy, or further, then I'm up for it!
If you are looking for a Chelsea wedding photographer, I'm your local girl. I love where I live, and there are so many great places to get married in west London. I love getting to know local wedding venues and meeting awesome suppliers, so if you are tying the knot in my area, get in touch!
When I'm not in London, I'm near Castle Cary, and I love being a Somerset wedding photographer. I might have been in London for almost ten years, but the south west will always be my home and it has some truly beautiful and spectacular wedding venues. It's where I also got married! So if you'd like any local recommendations, just ask.
