Testimonials from my amazing clients!

It warms my heart to see my clients so happy with their photos and the service I provide. I love receiving emails, phone calls and messages with such positive words about their experience! You can see some of them below. Feel free to click on their names to see their wedding or portrait session.


“Gemma photographed our wedding at Athol Hall. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding photographer. We are so happy with the photos, which capture the day in a way that really reflects who we are and how we experienced it. Further, Gemma was an absolute delight to deal with and genuinely very helpful with tips and ideas in the lead up and on the day. She was and continues to be very responsive to emails and questions.  Gemma strikes the perfect balance between organising those photos you want to frame and put on the wall (you know the ones), and being a ‘fly on the wall’ capturing those real and candid moments you want to remember forever.”


“We were so happy we found Gemma! We only had a smallish wedding and we wanted a photographer who was happy to be there for a few hours rather than start to finish, and that’s exactly what Gemma could do for us. In 4 hours, her and her lovely assistant Kelly captured every important part of our day and her photos were gorgeous. Gemma was so easy to work with and even some of my guests mentioned how lovely and non intrusive she was. We would highly recommend Gemma.”


Warm, caring, and utmost professional, made us feel relaxed, comfortable, and made us laugh. Our photos look even better than I’d hoped. We would definitely recommend Gemma Clarke to be the person who captures the moments you want!  6 stars not 5!!”


“We asked Gemma to capture some family lifestyle portraits for us as we celebrated our son’s first birthday in the Lower Hawkesbury last year. Gemma spent the day with us, and it was such a joy to have her be part of this special time away. The photos she captured were simply stunning and beyond our hopes and expectations, and the album she created for us was absolutely perfect. We don’t just consider Gemma a photographer, but a friend of our family! We can’t thank her enough for the memories we get to cherish through our eyes and in our hearts forever, and we’re so excited to have Gemma capture some family lifestyle portraits again for us this year, hopefully with the arrival of our second baby in the spring.”

“Gemma did an amazing job at our wedding, we couldn’t have asked for more! My wife and I had told her we weren’t into the serious ‘look into my eyes’ photos and if you take one look at our photos you’ll see she captured us exactly how we asked, laughing and smiling in every photo!! All our guests have told us how amazing our photos are, so thank you Gemma for making our special day even more special! “


“Gemma is amazing!! She is super nice, passionate, extremely experienced and takes beautiful photos.”


Thank you so much for the pictures!!! They are all amazing!! Absolutely love them! We really can’t thank you enough! And there are so many of them! Loved living the moments again. You are an amazing photographer!”

“She is amazing! Both as a person and as a photographer. Absolutely someone you want to follow you on your big day. She is so much fun having around, and takes really nice photos! She treats her customers really nice and professional, and delivers everything you were promised and more. I will recommend her to everyone. And the best; she travels the world to get to you.”


We first came across Gemma’s amazing work after she photographed a friend’s wedding. We were so impressed with her style and attention to detail that it made the choice of photographer quite an easy decision. Gemma is not only a fantastic photographer but her warm and caring personality means that the normal stresses associated with the day are evaporated as she goes about her business in an organised and professional manner. She made the day move along seamlessly and was sure to capture every moment and precious detail.  We had a lot of fun with her too!  We cannot thank Gemma enough for all that she did to ensure our day was perfect & every memorable moment was captured.  We would recommend Gemma to everyone.”


“Words can’t express how truly grateful and happy we were with Gemma’s work. We never could have dreamed that the most beautiful photos and our precious memories frozen in time were just the added bonus of having Gemma as our wedding photographer.

Gemma was more than a photographer on our special day; she was like part of the bridal party and wedding planner to us. She was there to support us every step of the way with constant attentive assistance and a natural warmth that took all the stress away even when the camera was nowhere to be seen.

We can hand-on-heart without any reservation say that Gemma exceeds all possible expectations. She has a gift and a true calling. We can never thank you enough.”


I just wanted to take this opportunity to truly and wholeheartedly thank you for making our wedding day so spectacular. Wes and I were originally so worried to have a photographer at our wedding. We knew we wanted photos to remember the occasion of course, but we were worried that we would have to pose and not act like ourselves on our day. As you know, Wes and I have been together for a long time, and we wanted our wedding day to feel relaxed, calm and of course fun. I feel as though this relaxed vibe was achieved and our day was absolutely seamless. Wes and I could not believe how amazing you were to work with! Wes is extremely shy, and for him to feel relaxed and at ease was a miracle! You slotted yourself into our day and we felt more that you were a guest and a good friend at our wedding just taking photos. You are extremely flexible and this also made the day run so smoothly. The photos are beyond words! Wes and I have not stopped looking at them for days now. Each photo captures a smile, a tear, a thousand laughs, good friends, good food and a great time. My guests also cannot believe your work and have commented on how amazing the photos are from the day. You were beyond amazing as was your assistant. We cannot thank you enough for the time, effort and the work you have created.”


“WOW you are quick!! Thank you SO much. We love love love and adore all our photos! So happy we were able to have you photograph our wedding!! Thanks for being so much fun. The comments we’ve received so far are ‘best wedding photos ever’!


“We just previewed our wedding photos and Gemma Clarke you are one talented person! Not only was it so lovely working with you, but you captured every single moment so beautifully. We Love Love Love them!”


“Gemma doesn’t miss a moment. She is ever present and a delight to deal with (personal and friendly) but also has a professional invisibility where the moments are never interrupted by her and her lens. She lets the moments flow naturally and captures them while we enjoy.


“Thank you so much, the photos are absolutely stunning! You did an amazing job. We also wanted to say a huge thank you for all of your help on the day. We both (Sarah especially) felt so much better when you arrived as we knew we were in good hands.”


Thank you soooo much for everything on the day and all your hard work behind the scenes as well. I love all the photos so much and I will definitely cherish them, especially as the years pass and bring back all those wonderful memories! I will highly recommend you to anyone who wants the best photographer and hope we will have a chance in the future to do more photos.”


“Gemma photographed our wedding in snowy Finland in January 2016. I had discovered Gemma some 18 months previous to this and had felt like we had struck gold! The idea in my head for my winter wedding was a great big celebration of all the small details of Finnish winter that I loved. The snow on the branches, the rocks peeking out, the sun through the trees.

Browsing a popular Finnish wedding site, I came across a wedding that just said I LOVE FINLAND! The details were captured with awe, the couple looked oh so beautiful and everyone looked like they were having the most fun. It turned out they too were a multi-national couple and this ignited a passion to have Gemma at our wedding!


I had so, so much support from Gemma before the wedding, she was always up for a chat about this or the other. I had some annoyances with my venue and she was there to lend a hand with advice in both a practical way and just as an emotional support, something so needed as a stressed Bride!


The wedding day was perfect of course, Gemma had made sure we had planned it all correctly and I was so glad we had someone who knew what was happening at all times that wasn’t me or my husband! She communicated with all our guests and vendors with total ease, even though many had little English skills! Everyone loved her and we felt honored that she could be at her wedding as we consider her a much loved friend now who we hope to see in Finland again soon, to photograph whatever our family looks like at the time. For now, our puppy is eager to meet her!

I am not sure that it even needs to be said, but of course her photographs are amazing. The pictures we have of our dream day, the lake, the snowy cottages! Every time we go through them there is this warm, and a little sad feeling, we miss our wedding! It was so much fun! I am sure these beautiful memories will elicit such strong feelings from us for years to come. Thank you Gemma!


Thank you so much for capturing these wonderful images! We had so much fun with you – I don’t think we stopped laughing or grinning throughout all our photos!! You’ve helped me remember all the wonderful moments that slipped my mind and uncovered amazing things I didn’t get to see. I’ve since been stressing over the little details of what did/didn’t go to plan but your photos have really reminded me of what a joyous, beautiful occasion it was and they have helped put everything into perspective in terms of what the day was about.  We really felt so comfortable with you. We have been so looking forward to seeing your photos of the wedding (pretty much from the day I met you!!) and you did not disappoint! Thanks again for your amazing work!”


I looooooove what you’ve done with the album! AH-MAZING!!!!  Can I just say another huge thank you for being one of the biggest highlights of our wedding day. You both made it so easy and helped me so much (you have no idea!). It was so comforting to know you were there to keep things on track and also keep us happy!  And you’ll never guess the number of times Cohen has said ‘How great were Gemma and Robert?! We were so lucky to have them. Gemma’s so good at capturing all the little moments…’ We watched some of the wedding footage the other night and we’re amazed how you got so many perfect moments when they literally pass in just seconds. So a HUGE thank you to you and Robert again for being part of our wedding and doing an amazing job and totally exceeding our wildest expectations!


“Gemma isn’t just a photographer. She is an ambassador of good feelings and happy memories. A cheerleader of positivity and special moments. And after having the privilege of spending time with her, remembering a wonderful day through Gemma’s eye is a rare and inspiring gift. Thanks Gemma”


Gemma is now a part of our family. Her work is amaze balls and we don’t really have a significant event without her there to capture it. We have a family doctor but we also have a family photographer – Gemma Clarke. She is super quick to edit and is always happy to go the extra mile. Her candid shots are our favourite, she has a creative eye and this magic finger that captures the most beautiful interactions and significant moments – she can also make average scenarios look spectacular. We are so lucky – thank you Gemma!”


I won’t lie, the only thing I was slightly nervous about during the whole wedding planning process was finding the right photographer. There are so many out there, it’s a big expense and really if the photos aren’t amazing, it can leave you super disappointed. After all, other than a ring and a new husband/wife the photos are the big thing you take away from the day!  Saying all that, if you are reading this on Gemma’s web page, hire her services RIGHT NOW! She is sooo organised, easy going (yet professional), makes you feel at ease right away AND captures the most spectacular images! Every time we look at our photos we are taken right back to each moment and get to experience it again! We really had the best day of our lives and it was very much topped off by Gemma and her assistant Robert!


“I can’t stop looking at our wedding photos, they are amazing! Gemma you are fantastic and we love your work. Thank you so much for taking such beautiful photos, you made the whole experience so easy and relaxing. We were so happy to share our day with you and Renee. I will be forever recommending you!


Gemma Clarke is an amazing photographer who shows so much passion and love towards her work. If you are after a super fun, organised and incredibly talented photographer, Gemma Clarke is your lady! Photography was so important to us for our big day and we could not be more impressed! I cannot stop looking at my wedding photos and smiling from ear to ear every single time I see them! Gemma was caring, fun and super organised which made the day run so smoothly! Her expertise is amazing and the advice she gave was always given with genuine knowledge, experience and care. We are so incredibly happy with our photos and Gemma captured the day perfectly! We could not have asked for more. AMAZING is an understatement…. THANK YOU for your incredible work Gemma! We are so thankful for you!”


How can words describe the wonderful Gemma Clarke? From day one when she told us she was available to shoot our wedding I was excited. I had seen the photos she had taken and was so amazed how beautifully candid her photos were. She was so friendly right from the start and really made the whole experience so simple and personal by getting to know us and what we wanted for our wedding day. I was a ball of nerves the morning of our wedding and when she turned up it didn’t take long at all until I was laughing and feeling at ease.


The way she captured our day without intruding, we couldn’t believe the shots she got! She made the day so easy for us and when we got our photos we were SO impressed, we still can’t get over how amazing they are! She captured everything we wanted so perfectly. Her fun easy going personality and attention to detail made her an absolute joy to be around on our special day. We couldn’t speak highly enough of her and would recommend her to anybody wanting amazing and candid photography! Thank you so much Gemma, you were the highlight of our day and we will always treasure the wonderful photos and memories you made for us. You have an incredible talent and we couldn’t be happier!”
