Capturing those special moments that take your breath away.

Behind the Lens

To me, photography is not something that you can call a career. I mean sure you can earn money from it but anyone who does it always puts it second. It is all about passion and the chance to freeze priceless moments in a frame. For me, that pursuit started when I was only a six-year-old girl. A girl whose only dream was to capture everything that she put her eyes on. My dad’s Zenit film camera played a vital role for me as I would go around capturing photos and then disappearing into a dark room for hours. There was an element of magic that sparked a special connection for me with cameras and as I grew older it only became more and more intense. A lot of children save money to buy something that they really want, and for me, that thing was my first ever Canon film shooter. Before I even started photography as a full-time earning gig, I covered more “professional” events with my family and friends than I can even remember.

Photography is a very vast field and there are more niches than anyone can possibly list. For me, there was a lot of experimentation before I finally realized my true passion; weddings. If you were to ask me why I chose it, the answer would be the thrill.  Weddings are incredibly special, beautiful, tough, stressful, nerve-wracking events, both for the couple and the photographer. It brings me personal joy to see a happy couple and I feel compelled to make sure I capture priceless moments. The thing is, most of these moments come at a moment’s notice and then they are gone forever. Apart from my addictive love for black chocolate (it’s real BAD), being able to capture moments in a way that creates a story worth telling your grandkids 40 years down the line is my high.

Being a wife and a mother myself, I am highly dedicated to my family and my clients are an extension of that family too. I was a bride too once and I understand how emotional and overwhelming weddings can be, especially for brides. I have some great moments that I shared with several couples who needed a friend in that crucial hour and I am especially proud of all the behind-the-scenes help I provided all my clients. My work often extends beyond that of a photographer as I become a Swiss army knife of human support for the day. Be it providing emotional support, becoming a hair and makeup artist, entertaining kids or providing directions to locations, I have done it all and my clients keep remembering me for it. For me, it is just a chance to let someone have the best possible wedding day and when they look back at it after 20-30 years, they remember me as a close friend.

Once the vows have been made, cakes devoured, and the dances danced, you will turn to a new chapter in life. Many more precious moments will come and go and as your family grows, you will keep going back to your wedding day, to the moment when it all started. Having professionally captured photographs are the perfect tool to relive memories of that day. Sometimes they will make you smile, other times you will cry, and some moments will simply become funny stories that you will repeat with the whole family on every holiday. As a photographer, I put in my heart and soul to support every single couple that I work with. I make sure that you do not remember me just for my excellent customer service and work ethic.

I’d love to know a little bit about you, so why not get in touch using the form below and you can tell me all about you and your plans. I am a firm believer that the first step to connecting with your wedding photographer is to let them know about yourself so don’t hold back.

How would you describe your style?

Classic. Candid. Emotional.

What do you love about weddings?

For me the best part of a wedding is seeing so much love in the space. From the bride and the groom to the older couples that you can still see the adoration in their eyes when looking at their love.
I adore the little children dancing and just loving life, fresh and ready to take on the world.

Advice for couples planning their wedding?

Your wedding photography investment is one of the few things that will truly last and increase in value. As your family grows and your future children become parents themselves, the story of your wedding day will become more and more priceless. A great photograph can make you laugh, smile, or cry. The investment we make into our work and to each couple is substantial, committing to you the very best customer service, artwork & style.

A true professional!

We hired Doville Gail for our wedding ceremony and reception at Marylebone Town Hall, London, on 9 May 2019. She was punctual, completely professional and took amazing pictures. Doville really went the extra mile for us, to take truly unforgettable photos. She was also a good fit with our group, as she was very polite and got on with everyone. A true professional!

I would not hesitate to recommend her for their wedding.

Fantastic photographer!!!!

Fantastic photographer. Doville took photos for our wedding this year and we are so happy with how the photos have turned out. Doville was really friendly and professional, both when meeting her to discuss what we were looking for and on the day itself. She fitted into the day seamlessly, and seeing as it was a much smaller wedding than planned (thanks covid) she had a great ability to get the best photos without it feeling like we had a photographer there, a great skill to be able to seamlessly fit into the day. We absolutely love the photos they captured the event perfectly. We would highly recommend Doville to anyone else.

Couldn't have wished for a better photographer 5/5!

After many weeks looking for the perfect photographer, Doville's photos really stood out for us. After the initial contact, everything else that followed was seamless. From the get go, we knew we were in safe hands.

As we planned our wedding during the pandemic, our plans were cancelled/changed several times. Doville was very understanding and very flexible with our ideas.

We ended up having a small wedding with many restrictions due to government guidelines. As promised, we did not notice Doville in the background taking our photos. She was very respectful and easy to get along with.

As for the photos, they were such high quality and everything we were looking for. The album and print box Doville produced for us were absolutely stunning and of such high quality! They were so good, we ended up ordering an extra print box. Money well spent!

I would definitely recommend Doville, she is not only a TOP photographer but she is also very fun and easy to get along with.

Couldn't have wished for a better photographer 5/5!

Thanks again Doville!

Doville’s work is art.

Doville’s work is art. We are so very happy to have chosen her as our wedding photographer, she was the best wedding vendor we had, the most professional, most punctual and the most delightful to deal with. She was not only a fantastic photographer, but also a de-stresser and extremely patient at crazy wedding moments. We really couldn’t have asked for more.

professional and meticulous approach.

If you are thinking of booking Doville for her photography services, you will not regret it.

My wife and I booked her in for our wedding and cannot put into words how thankful we are for her professional and meticulous approach.

She is such a positive and warm person and it was clear from day one that she cared about the service being provided. Furthermore on the day of the wedding she went above and beyond to capture all of the moments and emotions during the day.
