I’m Gabriela, a 30-year-old, wife 💍, mum 👨👩👧, and wedding photographer 📸 from Yorkshire (Sheffield specifically) with South American roots.
I’m a pretty straightforward gal. I love my cats and dog and if I’m not shooting a wedding, or at my desk then I’m most likely chilling with my family, bingeing on Netflix, or planning my next business venture 👀.
I find pure joy in talking about my passions - which luckily for us both is photographing weddings! I LOVE getting to chat to you during our consultation calls, from the initial one when you’re riding high on excitement, hearing all about your plans, through to the final call when the nerves have kicked in a little - Getting to ride this journey with you is something that I will never take for granted.
I am a warm, friendly person, and meeting new people is without a doubt one of the greatest parts of what I do. The greatest compliment I can receive is when one of my couples tells me it was like having a friend with them on the day - fills this heart with joy.
On your wedding day, I’ll be there to fix your dress, adjust your bowtie, & most certainly pour you a glass of wine. I’m there for you every moment throughout the most special part of your life (yes, I’ll also see you on the dance floor!).
My favourite weddings are ones where the couple doesn’t realise how easy it is to feel comfortable behind the camera and are pleasantly surprised by how amazing they look. If you’re feeling anxious, I cannot recommend having a pre-wedding shoot highly enough.
I shot my first wedding at A Level for family friends and the passion ignited then. I then went off to Uni to study Film and TV production, and that’s where I met my husband. If you book a second shooter with me, you’ll have the pleasure of meeting him as he’s usually my right-hand man.
In 2019 I took the plunge and started photographing and videoing weddings full time. Never in a million years would I have predicted a worldwide pandemic putting a stop to that, but hey, 2020 was out to test all of us. Ever the businesswoman, I used this time to think outside the box and started photographing families on their doorsteps. It was also wonderful getting to spend more time with my daughter.

I did a lot of research on photographers and it's nerve-wracking wondering if you've made the right choice. From the moment we booked her to the big day itself, I can honestly say Gabriela was absolutely wonderful and I cannot recommend her highly enough - as a photographer and as a fantastic human being! She was so brilliant in finding out what we wanted and making us feel completely at ease. The quality of the photos speak for themselves and we adored the attention to detail Gabriela gave them. She went above and beyond to make us feel relaxed and special on the day and so many of our guests commented on how charming she was. Thank you Gabriela we will treasure our photos forever xxxxx

If we could only pick one recommendation from our wedding it would be to choose Gabriela and Alistair as your photographers. Ever since our initial conversation, Gabriela made us feel at ease and we knew we made the correct decision. She offers more than her expertise on photography/videography but also is on the other end of the phone for any advice or recommendations to make your day extra special (she has seen it all!).
She is very relaxed throughout the whole process and nothing is too much trouble. Also as a young parent herself she is excellent with children. Gabriela and Alistair made us feel comfortable all day and it honestly felt like they were there as our guests.
We have only seen a sample of our wedding photographs and we can already tell they have given us exactly what we asked for and cannot wait to see the rest!
