What Clients Have Said About GWParker Photography


Jessica, Beach Photography at First Landing State Park, family and children-11

 “My family and I enjoyed our session with Gary immensely! From the very start he came up to my nieces and got them to open up and take some fantastic shots! If you want a hassle free experience with a true artist and professional Gary is the photographer for you!”



virginia beach wedding photography, sandbridge-13“First off Gary is very easy going and goes above and beyond to make your wedding pictures wonderful! We had a three month engagement and are from West Virginia and decided on a ‘destination’ wedding. Several of the other photographers in the area where not accommodating to our out-of-town needs and were rather too expensive for ceremony only pictures. Gary was better then I even imagined, he was very willing to meet our needs and ready to be our wedding photographer two weeks before the date. He got at our ceremony location an hour or more before the wedding and I was running late and Gary didn’t seem to mind at all!!! We only agreed to a two hour session but it went longer than that probably three or more hours and again Gary didn’t mind and never once rushed us as we got family pictures after the wedding even though he later said he had another job that evening. Overall I couldn’t ask for a better photographer for our wedding, the pictures turned of phenomenal and he put up with our crazy family with a smile and made our day even better. I highly recommend Gary as your wedding photographer or anything else that you want awesome pictures of.”   -Laura


Virginia Beach Wedding (1 of 1)-2“When looking for a wedding photographer, price was a big issue since I was paying for most of the wedding out of pocket. I looked around at a lot of options and came across Gary’s work. Having some background in photography, I noticed right away that he had a lot of talent behind a lens. After contacting him, I found his pricing very reasonable. It was such a relief to find professional talent and great prices! At the beach wedding he showed up an hour early (just like he said he would). He is a very easy going, down-to-earth guy and makes you feel comfortable with who you are not who he wants or thinks you should be. He documented our most precious moments for four straight hours, even with sweat dripping down his face, never complaining, running up and down three flights of stairs. Even though I have a very large family, Gary was able to get beautiful pictures of everyone there. I would highly recommend Gary as your photographer for any occasion. Gary has rare talent and great prices. I am very impressed with the work he has done for me. The pictures turned out fantastic!”    -Reva


Virginia Beach Wedding Photographer, Lesner Hall, Virginia Beach-26“We asked Gary to do candid photos of our wedding reception and that is what we got. We had such awesome party pictures of the dance floor and intimate moments between my husband and I. I barely noticed him there but when I did look out for him he was snapping away. We walked away with over 400 photos of the reception. I would highly recommend him and can’t believe we got such great service for such an inexpensive price.”     -Mai & Danny



Beach Engagement Photography, Sandbridge Virginia Beach-7“I was a little nervous leaving my fiance in charge to find a photographer for our engagement pictures. He chose Gary Parker Photography and I couldn’t have been more pleased with Gary’s work. Not only were we doing engagement photos, but also family photos. Gary recommended a wonderful place on the beach, came prepared, was patient with working with two small children, and offered many great ideas for poses. He had the pictures edited and sent to us in a timely manner for us to order. The pictures were edited beautifully to capture all of the special moments captured on the beach.  Bottom line: trust your fiance and go with Gary if you need  photos done.    -Jessica & Jeff


Family Photo Session“Gary did a shoot with my husband, two month old daughter, and myself. We were at a nice park and the locations he picked to shoot were amazing. He was very patient whenever we had to take care of the baby. I loved that it was a candid shoot. The photos came out amazing. We couldn’t be more satisfied!    -Garielle




professional photographer in Virginia Beach“We hired Gary to take our family photos on a recent vacation to Virginia beach. We could not have a had a better time. Gary was so patient with our daughter (2yrs). He captured her personality perfectly, every cork and expression. We will cherish those photos forever. We will be scheduling a session with Gary every time we return to Virginia Beach. Thank you for the memories Gary, your the best!”    -Lisa



mom and son, intimate photo, Sandbridge beach“We challenged Gary because our seven-year-old never wants to smile for a picture–but the shots of my son are my absolute favorite ones!!! During the session, we were able to be comfortable, be ourselves–and still take great photos! The end result is well worth the investment. Thanks again Gary for the truly memorable captured moments.”   -Angel



Charlene Morton, Beach Photos, Sandbridge 2013 (40 of 40)“As a professional photographer myself, I’m a tough critic of portraits. However, I was absolutely thrilled with the end product Gary delivered to us. The lighting, the detail, the composition…everything was perfect! He truly captured the love between my husband and myself as we celebrated our fifth year of marriage. He was so personable as well, very easy to work with. Would recommend him to anyone, incredible photographer! :)”   -Charlene



Selby Family Beach Photos, Sandbridge 2013-30“Gary did a great job with our family pictures on the beach in Sandbridge. His shots were creative and all had fun with him. And that is hard to do when trying to coordinate 17 people. He was very patient with us and exceeded what he had promised. He spent plenty of time with us during the shoot and afterwards explaining the process. I would recommend Gary for any type of photo opportunity. Thanks Gary. Great family memories.”    -Cindy



Wedding photography in virginia beach-20“We chose to go with GWParker Photography for our beach wedding. Being from New York we had to rely on the internet to book everything for our wedding. Gary was very professional from start to finish and was enjoyable to work with! He did an awesome job on our wedding. We love all of the pictures! He gave us a great price and we definitely got much more than expected!”    -Stacy



allen and julie-1-2“Gary is amazing! He is friendly as well as professional. We were pretty awkward at first, and he did a good job of calming us down and getting us comfortable in front of the camera. We had a short deadline of when we would need our engagement pictures back by and he was able to accommodate that. I could not be happier with them and hope we are able to use him again in the future!”   -Julie
