From My Valued Clients


I'm a camera shy, steer clear of the spotlight type of person, especially in the buzz of our wedding day, but Gav had this wonderful way of making me feel comfortable and natural, I actually forgot that the camera was even there! Gav added so much to our wedding day, with his gentle sense of humour. We trusted him implicitly from the start and followed his suggestions which lead to a magical, smoothly run day. We love looking back at our wedding photos, they're beautiful and fun, revealing all the excitement of the day, and the special, tender moments. Thank you, Gav!

Gavin has the patience of a saint I promise .He works tirelessly and caters to every whim of the parties involved.Gavin is also open to reasonable suggestions for pics he is taking .A very down to earth easy going person who makes his job look very easy but it is not, especially with a photo happy troop like ours.

"When we found you online we knew we’d found “the one”. You certainly produced an ace set of photos to capture our day & you have a unique way of catching special moments between loved ones present. You captured the energy, fun and laughter of our engagement. Right from the first meeting you made us feel completely comfortable and showed genuine interest in our ideas and plans for the big day.
We loved how you captured the beauty of the location and appreciated all of the little moments captured between us and our guests that we have received only a week later in photo form. Your friendly demeanour made it feel as if you were one of our guests and it put us both at ease in front of the camera. You were also very professional and efficient from the initial inquiry through to the day we so eagerly anticipated. Thank you Gavin, we cannot recommend you highly enough. A truly innovative and inspirational photographer!

We would like to recommend Gavin Higgins Photography as we had an amazing experience of excellent service during our maternity photoshoot. Gavin was not only accommodating and patient with us changing dates continuously due to our unexpected medical emergencies but his service was simply excellent! We noticed and appreciate all the finer touches from taking it slow as I was on bedrest to the bottled water and breakfast goodies ready for us upon arrival. This was a special occasion for us after waiting a 6 year long journey to experience our moment. We are really impressed by Gavins work ethic and personal touches. The outcome of our photo's are nothing short of exceptional!! thank you Gavin for making our maternity shoot so special!

Bronwyn and Dane Williams

I couldn't be happier with our time with Gavin. We had a sunrise engagement shoot and then all day with Gavin on our wedding day. He has serious talent behind the camera as well as processing the final results. He takes pride in his work and we had a lot of fun throughout. I would highly recommend Gavin as your photographer and am excited to work with him again.

"I first met Gavin at my friend's wedding. Watching him in action helped me to make the easiest decision - he would be my wedding photographer one day! Fast forward 2 years and as my special day was fast approaching, there was no doubt in my mind: Gavin was my ONLY option! Before all else, he is my friend. But above and beyond that, he is so professional, smart, talented, patient and kind. His ideas are brilliant, and his execution even more so. He was there for support and advice throughout our whole journey. He thought of things we hadn't even considered and was so gentle in his suggestions. Gavin is just the most wonderful Dad and photographer and any person would be beyond blessed to have him as a part of their day - for any occasion. I will never have enough words to say thank you!
