Our Wedding & Portrait Photography tells the story of your day in stunning, natural images. Our job is to capture these special moments in a fun and unobtrusive way, so you can relax and enjoy your big day...
Gary and Paula photographed our wedding at the Saddleworth Hotel and I cannot sing their praises enough! They were amazing right from the beginning of the day, and both myself and my husband felt very comfortable with them, which is important as you spend a lot of your day together! ! I would 100% recommended Red 5 Studios to anyone getting married! Thanks again Gary and Paula! More...
Thank you to Gary and Paula for putting us at ease on our wedding on Friday! We can’t wait to see the pictures and are looking forward to a sneaky peak on here! Thank you xx
I attended the 5 day wedding and Portrait workshop in November, I wasn't sure if I was ready or advanced enough but Paula put my mind at rest. I learned so much in a very short space of time and still refer back to my notes. Gary's style is light hearted but assertive and confident, he is generous in sharing his knowledge and I'd definitely go back for more training. More...
Well where do we start! From the moment I met Paula I fell in love. She is truly passionate about the work herself and Gary do.
Our special day was captured in every way we wished it would be thanks to their perfect timing and dedication.
From the very first moment to the very end we LOVED having you guys with us! Xx Nicole and Alan Fox xxxx More...
I would like to thank Paula and Gary for delivering an excellent off camera flash course today, I have learnt so much which will help me develop my skills as a photographer and has been presented in such a way that even I could understand it.
Many thanks Gary for the tuition and thank you Paula for putting on a fabulous buffet and
I look forward to joining you again on one of your future portfolio days.
I would highly recommend. More...
We used Paula and Gary as photographers for our wedding 5 years ago and again for a newborn photo shoot for our daughter a few weeks ago. On both occasions the photographs have been outstanding and we are so pleased with the results. Paula and Gary make the whole process fun and relaxed and we have not only ended up with some fabulous photographs but had a great time too. Would highly recommend :-) More...
Fantastically friendly people who put me and my 2 young children at ease for our first ever family photoshoot. My daughter was a natural from the word go but my 5 year old son was very reserved to start with, but with help from Paula & (how rude of me, but it was 11 months ago ! !), my son soon came out of his shell and looked like a pro by the end. Lovely, lovely photos as the end result which moved my Mum to tears when she saw my selection in her photobook xmas present. Would very highly recommend & I would certainly return myself. More...
Wow Gary and Paula. What a lovely couple and absolutely fantastic at their job. From the moment we first met I knew you were passionate about wedding photography and made me feel comfortable instantly. Our wedding photos are simply stunning and I can not thank you enough. You are both truly lovely lovely genuine people who I hope we stay in touch with. Everyone at our wedding commented on how organised and precise you both were and would do anything to get the perfect shot for us. Thank you once again, and I loved having you as part of our wedding and wouldn't change a thing xx More...
Fantastic course yesterday with Shoot Smart Training. Really enjoyed it and learnt a lot. I will be back to do more in the future!

Thank you both.

Sadly I only booked the 3 day wedding course due to work commitments. Fantastic course, excellent trainers who keep you totally engaged (pardon the pun) through out.
If you are thinking about it, word of advice don't - just book it! More...
Tonight we have looked at the photos from our wedding in Feb and we are totally amazed by the work Gary and Paula have done. We are going to struggle to chose which photos are going in our album. On the day Gary and Paula were professional but fun so as we stayed calm and enjoyed having so many shots taken on a cold but sunny day. Your photos are refreshing the amazing memories we have of the best day of our lives. We have laughed and cried at the pictures as they remind us of the emotions and events of the day and that is exactly what we wanted in a photographer. We wanted someone to capture the day as it was with a mixture of posed and casual photos. WE ARE SO GLAD WE PICKED YOU BOTH. You are such a lovely couple who are so passionate and driven to produce fabulous results. Thank you so much. Love, Lane & Tracey Ingleson xXx More...
Just completed the 5day wedding & portrait course,Gary&paula were very infectious with their love of photography,the week was a laugh a minute course but still very professional &the amount i learnt was way passed what i expected and id recommend this to anyone who wants to take their camera to the next level
We have been using Red5 for 5 years, Paula & Gary did our wedding photography & have done shoots with our children. The kids love the sessions & feel like supermodels, even my husband gets in the spirit due to Paula & Gary's friendly, fun & laid back approach. Everyone feels so comfy & that's why we end up with great shots. Looking forward to our next shoot! � More...
We came for a photoshoot two weeks ago and my daughter was having a grumpy day. Being nervous to see the outcome of the pics I’m so pleased!
Thank you Paula and Gary you have given us some great pics with great memories More...
Amazing people! Made us feel so comfortable and were so patient with our two year old! Photos are gorgeous! Would highly recommend them. Thank you! X
Photographing our two little grandsons, aged one and a half and three and a half, who didn't really relate to each other, was going to be a challenge; well that's what I told Paula and Gary! Was I made to eat my words! The little darlings hugged each other, smiled and laughed, stood up; sat down; laid down, and anything else Paula and Gary asked them to do. The result was the most amazing set of photographs, which exceeded all our expectations. And when we viewed the slide show, set to the most beautiful and appropriate music, I wept. When we presented the pictures to the rest of our family as Christmas presents, there wasn't a dry eye in the house.A fabulous experience and outcome, and I can't recommend Red 5 Studios hghly enough. More...
Amazing experience, both Paula and Gary were brilliant at getting our 1 year old to relax and pose for the camera!! Got some beautiful pictures that we can treasure forever. Thank you so much!! Excellent service and excellent pictures, would recommend to anyone. More...
We have just used Red5 Studios to take pictures of our newborn baby girl and we couldn't recommend them enough. Gary and Paula are a great team and were extremely patient with us due to our daughter making life difficult for them crying most of the time! Paula was excellent in helping us to calm her and get her to sleep for the photo's and Gary's photography skills are second to none. When we went back to view the pics, well, just WOW! They are fantastic! Something we will treasure forever. Thank you so much guys! More...
First time we have had a professional photo shoot done. Made us feel very welcome and relaxed. Had bags of patience with our uncooperative 2 year old son who eventually came round and had loads of fun posing for the camera.
We would recommend Red 5 Studios to anyone. Top job by top professionals. More...
We booked a baby/family shoot with Red 5 Studios, and we thoroughly enjoyed every second of the photo shoot. Paula and Gary have a wonderful persona and make you feel very relaxed and welcome. Paula did a fantastic job of getting the right reaction from our 7 month old son to make sure we got the right shot. All the time both of them gave excellent guidance to us and we truly felt we were in the hands of professionals. We had a lot of fun the entire time, and the result shows in the pictures. We LOVE EVERY PICTURE and THANK YOU for making this a very special occasion to remember.We will be back and highly recommend Red 5 Studios. More...
Thank you for the wonderful pictures taken of my teenage son. We has some of the standard 'on the mantlepiece' photos for the grandparents and some wonderfully atmospheric pictures of him with his saxophone. Everybody young and old is pleased. Not only that but my son loved the experience of going into the studio and everyone was so lovely to us throughout the process. And the pictures are excellent value too. I can recommend the services of Paula and Gary as Red 5 Studios wholeheartedly. More...
Really friendly man and wife team, organised, professional and always happy to speak to me! They provided us with beautiful photos from our wedding day .
I cannot describe how fantastic Paula & Gary have been from the start to finish of our recent family photoshoot. My 7 year old daughter loves the camera, while my 5 year old son is very camera shy and was very uncooperative at the beginning of the shoot.
But by the time Gary & Paula had worked their magic on him, you would have thought that he was used to modelling - he was a pro !!!
For once, I've now got some superb family photographs that I am so proud of and I will be sharing them on my walls. The pictures are of fabulous quality, Paula & Gary are so friendly and helpful, I can't recommend them enough. I'll be back at some stage for sure. More...
It is our 40th wedding anniversary this year and, as part of the celebration of the event, we decided to have professional photographs taken of our family. We are very pleased that we asked Paula and Gary to do them for us. Their studio in Elland is perfectly situated in the town centre with plenty of free parking nearby. It is spacious, beautifully decorated and ideal for a family photoshoot.Paula and Gary were very welcoming and put us all at ease. There were ten of us altogether - six adults and four lively children, ranging in age from 4 to 67! The photoshoot started with the children. Paula and Gary quickly developed a very good rapport with them, and beautifully captured their energy and sense of fun.We continued with photos of the children, their parents and us, followed by family shots of our daughter with her family and our son with his. Paula and Gary managed to combine structure with a relaxed style in the final photographs, and we were all very pleased with a great selection of images which were not too formal and provided all the family groupings we needed.We are really delighted with the DVDs they produced for us which are wonderful mementos of our anniversary year and a celebration of our family. We can confidently recommend Paula and Gary. More...
We hired Gary and Paula from Red5 to take our wedding pictures. It was one of the best decisions we made regarding our wedding and truly worth every penny! Gary and Paula did an excellent job of keeping everything running smoothly, being gracious with our guests and ensuring we got the pictures we wanted throughout the day. When our pictures arrived they were more than we ever wished for. Absolutely stunning, a true reminder of how special and truly beautiful our day was. Long after the wedding we still have guests talking about our photographers and the pictures we have.We would recommend Red5Studios to be your photographers for any occasion and we won't hesitate to use them for every big occasion in our lives going forward. More...
As part of my 70th birthday celebrations I arranged a photo-shoot with Red 5 Studios.Paula and Gary were great. They made the whole experience fun, it was very easy to smile in the photos because of this. I now have some beautiful photos of my family to treasure. More...
I booked a day course on how to use my DSLR Camera with Red 5, and had a truly fantastic and enlightening day. With no detail spared and no question ignored Garry enthusiastically walked the group through each setting describing its purpose and its effect, as well as showing examples and giving scenarios of use. After a very tasty provided lunch (Thank you, Paula!) we began spending the afternoon with our cameras in hand putting the theory into practice and seeing results immediately, for those of us unsure about the use of our settings menu Garry was on hand to rectify the problem immediately! After plenty of playing with props, lights and depth of field we said our goodbyes and went on our way, and personally I can see the change in my photographs immediately as I'm putting more thought into each picture and the results really do show.Thanks for the training Garry really enjoyed the day. Hope to see you again soon for another day! More...
Wow, what amazing photographers Gary and Paula are! Our wedding was the most wonderful day and I wouldn't have changed the service we received from Red5Studios at all! From our first meeting with the couple, they put us at ease with great likeability, warmth and professional approach which meant that when our wedding day came, it was like having two extra friends along for the journey. They started with bridal preparations and got the key shots of dress, shoes, perfume, flowers etc without imposing on all the girls getting ready and drinking champagne. They then captured the fun and ensured I got lots of shots with the bridesmaids, my parents and of course sneaked off to capture the groom as well. There were natural photos and directed ones but Paula and Gary got the balance just right so that it all added to the fun rather than distracted from it. During the ceremony I was oblivious to all the camera shots so they weren't imposing in any way and didn't detract from all the special moments. The photos we got afterwards were perfect. They made our guests laugh when Gary was climbing on a stone wall to get the all important group shots outside to capture everyone, almost falling in the field below but showing complete dedication! This was a continuing theme of the day as despite the mud and the rain of December weather, Gary and Paula traipsed through fields, muddy turnstyles and down to the river of the village we got married in to get some phenomenal shots, including Gary lying down in the grass to get some creative photos. They must have been freezing as the adrenaline of the day was what was keeping me warm! The time we got on our own for photographs of just us two meant that we also got some special moments to talk about the day and our morning apart getting ready, as the rest of the day was a whirlwind spent with all the other guests. This was one of my favourite parts of the day. My favourite action shot was when I nearly took off in the wind holding my umbrella up. All our escapades outside were watched by our guests who stayed inside in the cosy warmth. However all this was due to us being willing participants and Gary would easily have found alternative (dry) places for us to have photos if we hadn't wanted to do any of this. Paula and Gary are so flexible and had previously asked for a list of 'must have' shots for the day. Since we have got our photos back, everyone who has seen them have said how unique and different they are to other wedding photos they have seen and said they were like photos of models in a magazine rather than the typical wedding photos (of course there are some of those as well!). I can't emphasise how much they helped to make our day perfect and the photos were so brilliant I've looked through them millions of times. The online slideshow set to music was an added bonus as it summarised the day without our guests having to trawl through all 400+ photos. We'd like to say a massive thank you to Paula and Gary. More...
We would just like to thank Paula and Gary very much for capturing our wedding day. You were absolutely brilliant on the day, you made us feel so relaxed and we had great fun creating all of the photos. Its great that you both have the knowledge and creativity to capture truely unique photos alongside the traditional. The photos we got were perfect and excellant quality, everyone commented on how beautiful they were. We think that the photography of a wedding is one of the more important things as the photographs that you get are a lasting momento of that special day. We are very glad we found Paula and Gary as the photography and professionalism they exhibited was outstading. We would highly recommend them.Thank you again, Nick and Cat. More...
Gary and Paula couldn't have made our experience more perfect. From preparing us for what the day would 'look like' to actually producing amazing photographs. All our guests commented on how happy and helpful they were at our wedding. Both of them made us feel relaxed, and enabled us to get the most out of producing a record of our very special day. The service we experienced was second to none - keeping us updated with when the photos would be ready (which was very quickly) and hand delivering the disk for us. We cannot thank them enough, highly recommended. More...
I cannot explain just how wonderful Paula & Gary are! A wedding day is a day you want to remember forever and for all the right reasons and this is why we picked Red 5 Studios.
Paula and Gary got it so right with us - they weren't imposing, demanding or rude. They were 100% attentive, creative and allowed us to enjoy the whole day without feeling like we were just on a shoot. It was like having an extra two friends with us to share in our day.
Nothing was too much for this pair – they were complete professionals without the cold front. I cannot express the importance of having a photographer you actually like – it’s a long day to spend with them otherwise and Andy and I had such a laugh with Gary & Paula. We wanted a few different types of photos and Gary couldn’t have been more obliging or excited to do this for us.
All our guests commented on how good they were on the day and the quality of their service really is 1st class. We opted for the fun shoot as well and they got everyone involved which is exactly what we were hoping for.
I felt like they had a genuine interest in us and were truly pleased to be there.
In summary – fantastic people, fantastic photos, fantastic service and fantastic prices!
A massive thank you Paula and Gary – we will be recommending you to all of our family and friends!!!! More...
Paula and Gary were superb!!!! Our wedding photos are one of a kind as they constantly listened to what we wanted. Their sense of hunour relaxed us and helped us to get the best out of the day. I could not recommend two people any more highly. We had done a lot of research of photographers prior to hiring Paula and Gary, and their work stood out above the rest. BRILLIANT! More...
Paula and Gary recently took the photos at our wedding, from the moment they arrived they made us feel relaxed and at ease. We were really excited to see the photos and they were worth waiting for - we couldn't stop watching the video it was just perfect. We incorporated the fun shoot in our wedding - well worth it and a great way to link day and night guests together and we got some brill pictures from it. Would highly recommend Red5studios. More...
