I’m Gina and I’m a self taught alternative wedding, portrait and events photographer.
I took a keen interest in photography during my time at Dartington College of Arts, where I began capturing backstage photographs during theatre performances and music gigs. It wasn’t until after graduation in 2012 that I decided to make a career out of it. Through my tiny business I have met some fabulous and talented individuals along the way and have managed to build a close team over the years and have never looked back.
It’s a little strange, but most of my inspiration comes from punk rock and grunge music – where a story or an idea simply flashes into my head. It was punk and performing arts that inspired me to shoot in a fun reportage style when it came to weddings. Often I like to give my own little sprinkle of quirks to give the photos that extra bit of fun and realism – from custom Polaroid frames, to popping candy, to trashing the dress, to bridesmaids beating the ushers at handling the sharp taste of sourball sweets, to recreating iconic film scenes – you name it!
I live right on the tips of Kent and London in the little village of Bexley with my family and Cat. I am usually found editing in my attic room with David Bowie records soothing my sanity – with a pyramid of stolen tea mugs next to me. In my spare time I do voice work on a radio comedy show with three of my talented friends and occasionally perform poetry and sing at open mic nights. I also love to attend conventions such as LFCC and MCM Comic Con where I have many fun shoots on the side with cosplayers.
You may have guessed but as much as I love my rock music, nothing can beat sitting in a cool cafe in Camden, sipping coffee with some good Jazz playing.
I’m currently putting together a little Etsy shop to sell some of my fashion photos.
I dream of one day going to New York or owning a house in Devon.
Aside from Weddings, the loves in my life are Blackadder, builders tea, gin and tartan.
