A little more about me..

Thank you for visiting my website, my name is Gary Derbridge and I am a Southend based Professional Commercial, Portrait and Wedding photographer in Essex. I have been lucky enough to become an international multi award-winning photographer, quite a mouthful, but it is something I am very proud of. Words that people often use to describe me when leaving testimonials are professional, modern, relaxed and creative. I think these are all vital aspects of any professional wedding photographer. In my opinion, the most important thing when choosing a wedding photographer is finding someone that you can relax with, and can make you feel relaxed. Therefore I encourage meeting me in my Southend office before the wedding, so you can find out if I am the right photographer for you!

I became a professional photographer back in 2007, and since then I have built a reputation as a quality assured professional Portrait, Commercial and Wedding Photographer in Essex. Although covering all age ranges, I seem to be particularly popular with younger couples that are looking for a fun forward thinking photographer to make their wedding day or event even more special. I cover weddings and events nationwide and abroad which, as you can imagine, is a fantastic part of the job.

If you are looking for a fun, modern Wedding photographer in Essex and the surrounding areas, then please contact me now! I will be happy to discuss your day, and we can work together to make it even more special with memories that will last a lifetime.

I look forward to hearing all about your special day very soon!

Some recent kind words..

Here is just a few recent kind words, that my couples have been kind enough to write for me…

wedding photos southend“Oh my gosh – they are stunning. We are so incredibly over the moon with them. You have worked miracles.

We have laughed and cried through the slideshow – it’s amazing how you remember the exact moments that they were taken, and yet without them, the ceremony seemed a blur. So pleased that you both captured the day so perfectly. I cannot begin to thank you enough.”

Nicki and Peter, Southend, Essex.

sarahsimon“I just want to thank you for our gorgeous photos and for all the work you put into our special day. It was great fun working with you and trying out our ideas!

I still don’t know how you managed to remember everyone’s names when organising us all and everyone has commented how professional and enthusiastic you were.

But best of all is the photos! We love them, from the standard group shots to the silly ‘Sarah pose’ ones, and especially the more creative evening shots. It’s almost a shame I can’t get married again to get more done!.

Sarah and Simon Curtis, Great Wakering, Essex.

hayleyaaron“We wanted to say that we are absolutely delighted with all the photographs. You’ve captured every moment in such a way that it brings back all the feelings from the day just by looking at the image – from the morning nerves of the Bride, to the emotion in the church, to the party atmosphere in the evening.

For somebody who could be considered as quite early on in their career, you have an amazing demeanour and not only made Aaron and I feel at ease, but you showed such professionalism and incredible organisation, particularly with our large number of guests. In fact, many of our wedding guests commented on what a fantastic job you did – “he really knows what he’s doing” was a recurrent comment throughout the day!

Your desire for the best possible shots shone through and is clear for all to see in the final images. We can’t wait to show our album off! We really do wish you all the best for the future and will be recommending you to everybody.

Hayley and Aaron Osborn, Southend, Essex.
