About Your Wedding Photographer
The man (and dog) behind Gomes Photography
My name is Iain and throughout my many years as a London wedding photographer and destination wedding photographer, I’ve been honoured to be the wedding photographer at some of the UK’s best wedding venues: St Paul’s Cathedral, Skibo Castle, Berkeley Castle, Leeds Castle in Kent, The Ritz Hotel in London, The Painted Hall at The Old Royal Navy College in Greenwich and Eltham Palace.
• My Approach
Weddings are days of celebration and real moments of happiness. As your wedding photographer, it’s my job to use my years of experience and creative thinking to make every moment of your special day look perfect. I take real pride in everything I do and, as much as you want them, I want to create stunning images. All of which are captured in a natural and relaxed atmosphere.
• Destination weddings
Whilst working as a destination wedding photographer, I’ve photographed a Chinese wedding at the Sydney Opera House in Australia, a castle wedding in Malta and a palace wedding in Italy.
These experiences have only encouraged me to seek out more destination weddings, so I’m more than happy to journey with you to create your perfect wedding day.
• My photography style
I have a truly individual photography style that has meant that I’ve been a wedding photographer for a huge variety of weddings. I’ve photographed Hindu weddings, Chinese weddings, Greek weddings, Jewish weddings and everything in between.
I always listen to my clients to understand what they want from their wedding. So, tell me what you want from your day and I can even help you with timings for your wedding day.
It’s your day, so you should share it with each other and friends and family. That’s why I pick my moments carefully to ensure that I can capture the perfect images and ones that I know you’ll love. I will find the perfect, vibrant location and let you share a special moment. That’s what I want to capture and it’s those moments that you’ll frame forever.
In the UK, especially, you want a photographer that is very experienced with low light situations. With me, you’ll not only get that experience but I also will not overtake your day with huge lighting rigs. I’ve learnt how to capture the right moments with small flashes that are often high and out of the way.
With this knowledge of lighting, I can capture crisp, clean and sharp photos, using studio and fashion techniques. It’s these photos that will truly stand the test of time for you to share with your loved ones for years to come.
