GDA Weddings

CT Wedding Photographer

Hello!  I’m Gary Pope, the lead photographer of GDA Weddings.  I’m your typical super-geeky dude turned photography enthusiast who just loves capturing quirky couples!  As an self-proclaimed-ex-D-list-board-game-Youtube-celebrity, I am also a self-proclaimed expert with working with geeks and those that do not fit the “norm”…or whatever that means.

I’m all about bringing the fun and capturing the most intimate moments you two will ever have!

My Style

So my style involves a lot of laughter–my shoots are relaxing, natural, and interactive. Since most of my couples have never been in front of a camera before, it’s not natural to instruct them to put a hand here and to put their legs there.

Instead, we just joke around, play games, and the intimate moments naturally arrive.  I try my best to have you two posing without you actually knowing that you are posing!

…..Oh, you wanted to know about my style, as in how the finished photos look?

Oh! Well, the easiest way to describe my style is that my photos are bright and airy, but minus the airy…hope that made sense!

Sometimes a deck of cards is all you need for a good time!

Perfect for your average length wedding.  This is typically enough time to capture some getting ready photos, the ceremony and the most important sections of your reception!

With one photographer I will be able to capture the most important angles of your wedding, while also capturing details and candids of family/friends!

Having more photographers guarantees more candids, the best angles for all moments and the ability to have 2 eyes everywhere!

Your Photos will stay in our online gallery for at least 1 year.  You will be provided a link where you can download photos and share them with family/friends!

No need to worry about the length of your wedding I’ll be one of the first people there and one of the last people leaving!

With 2 photographers we will be able to capture the best angles of every moment, a ton of candids of family/friends and we can have 2 eyes at different places!  Perfect for people doing getting ready photos at separate locations.

Engagement sessions are the perfect way to announce the upcoming marriage!

Also engagement sessions are perfect ways to practice how to shoot your wedding day photos, so you can focus on partying rather than taking the perfect picture!

These prints are perfect for couples that would love to have photos of their engagement session at their wedding as center pieces and decorations!

An emergency shoot is to guarantee that you’ll come out with fantastic photos for your wedding.  If something completely out of your control makes it impossible for us to capture your portraits on your actual wedding day then there’s no need to worry!

We will just schedule another date to take your portraits and we will try our best to make it appear as if it’s the same day so no one would even notice.

Monopoly

Starts From

$4,199

For those that want it all!  Perfect for big weddings and those that want to capture everything!

No need to worry about the length of your wedding I’ll be one of the first people there and one of the last people leaving!

So why would you ever need 3 photographers when 2 sounds so efficient?

3 Photographers is perfect if you have a really big wedding and are focusing on trying to capture as many candids as possible.  With 3 photographers you’ll literally have someone everywhere capturing every last detail of your wedding.

Also 3 photographers speed up the process of portrait sessions as well!  With 1 photographer being the lead, another is capturing candids someplace else, the 3rd photographer is usually great at gathering family members, helping with posing, waving veils, holding lights, etc.

You will also receive more photos as well!  Normally you’d expect 75-100/hr.  But with 3 photographers that can be bumped to 100-120/hr.

Engagement sessions are the perfect way to announce the upcoming marriage!

Also engagement sessions are perfect ways to practice how to shoot your wedding day photos, so you can focus on partying rather than taking the perfect picture!

Most couples use this session for dinner rehearsals, anniversaries and additional wedding days for cultures that do not require full day service on that additional day.

You will have 1 credit for a full session.  Most sessions are typically 90 minutes long
