Sam Gavins Photography is me, Sam. I am a female freelance photographer based in Winchester in Hampshire but happy to travel throughout the UK and beyond.
My expertise is photographing people whether it be weddings, christenings, parties or a special event.

I offer several packages, explained fully on my website. My basic all day package starts at £900.00
These prices are not exhaustive, most couples require a photographer all day but some want a photographer for a shorter time.
I do offer a shorter day service - 2 hours being the minimum. I offer an hourly rate of £100.00 per hour.

Included in the fee is exclusive online viewing of your pics and a slideshow of selected images shown with your three favourite backing tracks.
All edited images will be given to you on a USB stick in a beautifully presented box.

All other events will be treated individually, so please give me a call to discuss your requirements.

We had a very rainy day for our wedding and she kept everyone’s spirits high and energetic. Even provided us some adorable umbrellas which look great in the photos. Such a lovely person and very organised. Extremely happy with all the photos

Sam covered our registry Office ceremony and then a year later covered our wedding celebration. Throughout both events Sam was calm, attentive and patient. I couldn't ask for a better photographer . The photos were a great mix of posed and capturing the moment. Both our families cannot believe the quality of the photos.

Sam Gavins Photography replied:
Thank you so much for your kind words Ellie, it was an absolute pleasure to be at you wedding. X

We hired Sam on the spot after witnessing her work her magic at a friend’s wedding. We are so very pleased we did. On the lead up to the wedding, the contact we had with Sam was so positive we felt at ease from the very begin. The photos that Sam took were so much more than we could have wished for, Sam has a natural ability to see and capturing magical moments and taking shots that captured the whole day perfectly. We highly recommend hiring Sam for any event you have planned. Thank you, Sam, for capturing our memories. From beginning to end and beyond you have been wonderful. xxx

Sam did an excellent job with our wedding photographs. Prior to our big day she met us to get to know us a little and to discuss our exact requirements. On the day she worked methodically and unobtrusively, adapting to some challenging circumstances outside of our control, to produce a wide range of formal and informal shots that we were very pleased with. I would recommend Sam to anyone looking for a flexible, professional and friendly photographer to capture the best moments of their celebrations.

Sam is a true professional and a joy to meet and work with. We have just received our wedding photographs and slide show through from Sam, (just a week after the wedding!) and are so so impressed. They bought a tear to my eye and now I can't stop looking through them all again and again! Sam has such a lovely way with you as bride and groom as well as with all of your guests. She sees photo opportunities where you can't imagine and captures everyone so perfectly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Sam for any event. We are planning to book her next for a "family sitting" and one of our guests booked her there and then to be the photographer at her wedding scheduled for August.

We met Sam after finding her photography services on line. She came around to meet us, we instantly liked her, what we saw and what she said of her work. We have now received the photos and, WOW......, they are fantastic - we are so pleased. Sam you did what we asked for and above. Our guests also passed on very positive about you and how hard working you were on our day. Thank you so much Sam and we have no hesitation in recommending you and your services.

We were delighted with the photos Sam did for us. She caught all the funny moments and took some lovely individual portraits too. She's friendly and really easy to have around - she took time in advance to work out exactly what we needed.

Sam was woman of the match at our wedding in the woods! Our friends and family all commented on how fabulous she was the next morning! From our initial meeting we immediately felt at ease with her, she was so professional but actually her kindness and friendliness was what stood out. From organising our rabble which is no easy feat to the fact she dressed for our theme, to helping us capture special moments on our day we would recommend Sam to anyone without hesitation! Thanks Sam ��
