Relaxed , unposed and un-awkward wedding photography for easygoing couples
Wedding photography doesn't have to look stiff and feel awkward, and you're not the kind of couple who wants that!
You want wedding photography which is chilled-out and fun, leaving you with photos full of real emotions rather than frozen smiles. I aim to capture delirious laughter, happy tears, wide grins, and all real the moments in between. I 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. My relaxed and friendly approach allows you and your guests to just be yourselves, forget you're on camera, and enjoy your special day.
It's lovely to meet you, and congratulations on your engagement! I'm so happy for you, and I hope your wedding plans are going well. Thank you so much for visiting my website and I hope you find it useful!
I believe it's really important to 'click' (pun intended) with your wedding photographer as it will really help put you at ease on the big day, especially if you are camera-shy. So here is a little bit about me, so you can see if you think we might be a good match.
I'm pretty easygoing and don't take myself too seriously. I also have a slightly irreverent sense of humour - apologies!
I am married to the beautiful Emma and we have two adorable kitties named Vali and Tuppence. We live on the Chelsea/Fulham border in west London.
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!

Hello ! I 'm Genevieve
Storytelling wedding photography
I am a documentary wedding photographer and edit in a light and airy, film-like style with smooth, creamy colours and a timeless feel. I 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 myself got married not so long ago, and take it from me - your wedding day will absolutely blur by in a mad rush of emotions, faces, and words. You may not recall 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.
“Genevieve is a lovely person and a wonderful photographer of events. She was lovely to deal with in the planning stage, always available to chat or email about ideas, she was polite, positive, proactive. On the day she was early, everything went incredibly smoothly and the pictures look fantastic.”

London Wedding Photographer & Somerset Wedding Photographer
So where do I cover?
Anywhere and everywhere! I'm completely flexible and happy to go wherever the next job takes me. In all my packages, I include travel costs 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!
I know amazing wedding vendors in both locations (and elsewhere!) so if you are looking for some recommendations, don't hesitate to ask.
