It’s not all about the shooting! The Photoshopping really leaves a smile on my face. In fact the whole process gives me a lot of satisfaction and any after-request such as tweaking or cropping an image, is never a task. The best bit always, is when I hear the WOW’s and recieve the positive Wedding Photography Testimonials!

Gary, We would like to thank you for photos that we will treasure forever. Thank you for giving all my ideas a go, I really appreciate it. We couldn’t be happier with the final product and the slide show brings a tear to my eye every time I watch it.

We received our photos really quickly and the slide show once I had chosen the final select few, was finished so promptly I was very impressed. The final product is something I proudly show off.

My family members kept complementing you as I showed off the photos. I shared the slide show on social media and have never received so many comments!

Thanks again Gary, and Happy Days. :) Warm Regards, Rob and Becky, Indie, Laila & Ava. x

Gary produced amazing photos of our wedding. He was so accommodating and patient as the rain came down for parts of the day. He was so kind to stay a little longer in order to make sure we had the perfect photos of our special day (They are perfect, i couldn’t ask for more).
The slideshow and photo book he created is so special and makes for great mementos. The communication with Gary was easy including before and after the wedding. He was super quick in getting sample pictures to us and rest to us not long after.
I would highly recommend Gary to shoot your special day, he is very professional and easy going at the same time.

Thanks again Gary.
MJ and Luke :)

P.S. My family kept complimenting you over the photos, we all think you did a wonderful job ??

So Thank you so much ?


Gary … The images you have captured & your video presentation has turned our simple little event into a fairy tale.  It is like something you would see in a magazine with models.  You captured so many various emotions and aspects of our special day and put them into an absolutely spectacular backdrop.  Actually, many different spectacular backdrops.

When we arrived home last night we were buggered but we played the video on our big screen television continuously about 6-8 times without stopping.  We both had tears rolling down our face and all we said was “love that one” “that’s beautiful” “that’s like a model” “wow, how special is that” “what beautiful memories”. We can never thank you enough for your professionalism, dedication and keen eye for those special moments.  I feel very emotional about how special you have made our simple little ceremony and don’t think I’ll be able to verbalise it to you in person so hopefully you can feel our love and appreciation in this email.  When I see you, I will just want to give you a big hug.

Thank you and Jacqui so very much. Lots of Love – Glen & Lea  – SUNNYBANK HILLS QLD

Gary … after seeing a recent sample of your photos, I cannot believe the stretched mood I was in at the time (plus being sick with flu) translated into the stunning imagery you produced. Recently sent some shots to my immediate family via text and all have raved about how beautiful they are. On the day, you were very easy-going and long-term, will help Justin and I re-live what once was. Thank you so very much.
Love, Julie X O

…… Hi Gary, how are you? Both Julie and I want to personally thank you for the time and dedication you gave us on our special day. We’ve now had a good chance to look at the photos and video you made. Both are absolutely amazing (brought tears to our eyes.) You taking the photos makes our memories come alive. Thank you, again so much for the wonderful memories you’ve given Julie and myself.
Justin P.S. Your eye has captured some great moments.

Gaz was great!

Unfortunately on the day of our wedding it poured rain! When the sun came out a few days later we met Gaz at a beautiful beach for some artsy photos just of my husband & myself.

His lovely assistant (wife….aka the Champagne Celebrant) was even so kind as to bring some champers & nibbles for the occasion. No copyright rubbish.

Highly recommend!

We absolutely love the montage. It’s absolutely amazing. Thank you so much. You both made it so incredible for us ❤❤

Gary fulfilled our requirement to make the most of us and the beautiful location.

He’s a fantastic outdoor photographer and easily fitted into our beach wedding, and made the most of the sun between the showers.

The photos are more than a memory and bring the day back to life.

PJ & Gen


Celebrating the love…

Just wanted to say a big thank you for everything to make such a Wonderful – Magnificent – Perfect Day for us both.

It wouldn’t of been possible without Gary’s expertise.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Melessa & Vernon Garvey


Fantastic work Gaz!

So happy to have chosen you to be part of our special day!

Glenn and Mel


Gaz produced us the most stunning suite of photos that were not posed or structured, he was able to find moments through the day we could not have remembered or even knew happened.

He has an incredibly beautiful eye for finding the emotion in small things.

Timeless, special photography!!



We just want to thank you so much for the beautiful photos you took of our elopement. You perfectly captured the mood of our relaxed, fun, family ceremony.

We felt you really went out of your way to ensure you understood what it was we were wanting in these life-long mementos. Your relaxed, unobtrusive approach, even with a wayward 2yo to deal with!!, was just what we were looking for in a photographer… were definitely THE MAN!!

Cheers – Maxi and Lynne

We were absolutely delighted with Gary as the photographer at our recent wedding and we highly recommend him to any other bridal parties.

Gary is an approachable, relaxed mannered guy who made all nerves on the day slip away. He produced beautiful photographs that are so true-to-life and we are incredibly happy with the results.

We had a wonderful time and a big thank you Gary and Jacqui.

We can’t thank you enough Gary!

Your photographs of our wedding are sensational and just stunning -although these words don’t do them justice!
For two people that don’t like having their photo taken we had so much fun and felt completely at ease with you as our photographer.
The whole time, before, during and after our wedding day you have been easy-going and flexible but professional and reliable, making the whole experience totally stress-free and enjoyable.
We wouldn’t change a thing! We feel so lucky to have had you capture, and be part of, our wedding.


We just received our wedding photos today and I just want to give a massive shout out to the photographer Gary Patterson .

I have watched the slideshow about 15 times and just love it.

If anyone wants a photographer for any occasion u have to get this man, he is the best in town!!!

Cant thank you enough for capturing some great photos!!!!!.


Gary did a perfect job photographing our romantic winter elopement to Bryon Bay.

He created some amazing shots before, during and after our morning ceremony at Wategos – even though there were only a few people there we hardly noticed him moving around and he seemed to capture every angle of the day and really got the vibe of the occasion into the pictures.
We had the shots within a very short time really nicely presented. Of course he also ordered the perfect weather for us too!
We can thoroughly recommend the quality of his work and of course he was a lovely person to have around on the day as well.
Thanks so much for helping us create great memories!
Kris & Marco (Mr & Mrs Moet)

What an amazing day, and we have the photo’s to prove it!

 Gaz well and truly managed to capture not only our beautiful day but special moments amongst our guests throughout the ceremony.

 Gary understood exactly what we wanted in our photos, and we are so grateful to have such wonderful memories.

 Thanks Gary for being part of our special day!

 Jay & Wendy xx

Just to say how much we love the photos – thanks so much for bringing them around!

The photos are beautiful and I’ll be sending them all off to the guys to enjoy!

Take care and speak soon!

Simply amazing photos, Gary asked what we would like and absolutely delivered, the photos are gorgeous capturing every moment of our beach wedding.

We eloped and had no idea on the locations Gary completely put our mind at ease and made everything so easy.

I am so glad we had Gary as our photographer and highly recommend him for any special occasion that you want captured.

What amazing photos Gary…everything that we asked for we got and more.

Gary was excellent at interpreting what we wanted our wedding photos to capture. I would recommend his service to anyone wanting a easy and no fuss approach for your wedding day photographer.

Gary made it about us and what we liked and didn’t like and we had our photos completed within a week.

Thanks again Gary for a beautiful job.
