Hello there I'm Robert I fell in love with photography when was 11 on a school trip to Rome and kept it going and going. In the early days it was all film and messy darkrooms. I embraced digital in 1998, but I do still love my first medium format camera. I was recently asked to shoot an entire wedding on it, I shoot on high-end nikon camers and lenses these days but there's still people who love that classic film look in black and white.
I worked with a wedding photographer in Wales in 1995 and picked up some old school tricks on managing big groups, using flash and how to keep mother-in-laws happy...a valuable life skill I found. Since then I have developed a less formal style, which combines documentary, contemporary and some directed photography that aims to capture the real emotional moments of special days.
I'm so confident you will love your images I offer all my couples a complimentary engagement shoot and 10x8 print with no hard sell or obligation to book me.
I feel its important for us both to get to know each other a little before a big shoot, it also gives you a cooling off period if you dont like my style or choose someone else.
You can also catch up with me me on Facebook: Robert Gunning Photography and Twitter @robertgunningph
all the best, hope we might cross paths
What 'my' brides said...
"I got married on one of the hottest days last summer and Bob did a fantastic job. He worked very hard throughout the day taking so many fantastic shots. He captured the wedding celebrations perfectly and has made the whole day come alive through his photos. There are too many great photos to choose from. I would be very happy to recommend Bob - not only is he completely professional, he also managed everyone well in the group shots and was fun to have at the wedding. Many thanks Marina"
" Bob did a truly amazing job on our wedding day. He worked tirelessly to capture the absolute essence of our day and the photos were better than I could ever have imagined! Bob has a real talent at reportage photography and captured all of our guests at their best. He also managed to do that without you even knowing he was there!
I have and will continue to recommend Bob to friends as apart from the brilliant photography he is such a lovely bloke! Would highly recommend to any brides looking for someone who will listen to what you want from your photos and leave you with some amazing memories! Thanks bob! Jo x"
What my event clients said...
“I worked with Robert on countless events and promotions during my time at Selfridges. I can say without a shadow of a doubt, that Robert is one of the most professional and thorough photographers that I have ever had the pleasure to work with. He works diligently and uses his own initiative whenever he can and is always completely unobtrusive, getting the job done very well without any kind of fuss.
Furthermore he has a most likeable character and people immediately warm to him, and he can really work with people from all walks of life. I have used Robert's services even after my tenure at Selfridges and have recommended him and his work to many friends and contacts and their feedback has always been more than complimentary about Robert.”

“Robert is an excellent photographer, who is always exceptionally professional. I have worked with Bob not just as a colleague at Selfridges but hired him at Etre image for a number of high profile events. Bob is able to capture both the essence of an event, and those 'Kodak moments' as well following any brief provided to him. I would most certainly recommend Bob's work to anyone requiring a highly experienced and skilled photographer.”
