Hey I’m Gareth, I’m a creative / documentary / natural / unobtrusive / call it what you like wedding photographer based in Staffordshire. All I know is that I love my job and I’m passionate about capturing the real moments and creating wow photos.

Staffordshire Wedding Photography Gareth Newstead
Hi, I’m Staffordshire wedding photographer Gareth Newstead, I specialise in wedding and portrait photography across Staffordshire & Derbyshire. From my home in the pretty village of Barton-Under-Needwood, I am ideally suited to cover portrait, event and Wedding Photography in Staffordshire, Derbyshire and across the Midlands. I’m happy to travel to new and exciting locations throughout the UK.
Photography is not just my job but my passion. I’m a people person and portraiture is what I most enjoy. I feel privileged to capture first-hand a behind-the-scenes look at people’s personal moments, whether that be close-ups of the first kiss at your wedding, a special celebration or those precious moments with your family. I don’t really like to label my style of photography but I do like to create an experience for everyone involved and as long as you love my work and like me then hopefully that’s all that matters. I specialise in wedding photography but also cover Family & Children Photography.
For a lot of my photography, my style is to shoot in a very documentary way to capture all those spontaneous and natural moments, real smiles with a lot of fun along the way. In general, I like to mix Natural Documentary Photography with Creative Portraiture.
So whether you are looking for a natural documentary wedding photographer, traditional studio portraits, modern lifestyle photo shoots or Maternity and Newborn Photography; events booked with Gareth Newstead Photography have the same aim: to capture the images you want to see in a relaxed and unobtrusive way. Have a browse through my work, I hope you enjoy looking at my pictures as much as I have enjoyed taking them. I love what I do and I hope that comes across in my photographs.

Some Kind Words
“Check out Gareth Newstead photography. Very recently did our wedding day and he was in every aspect and sense of the word, a true professional. Quite simply the most passionate, enthusiastic, talented guy we could have ever hoped to share our day with. The guy was even lying down in dirt and fields to capture his vision. We don’t consider him our photographer, he’s our good friend who we hope to see again soon! Thank you Gareth, you absolutely smashed it and we were utterly privileged to spend our day with you and Hana. You made everything so exciting and easy. We love you, dude! #PhotographyNinja #NowYouSeeHimNowYouDont #GiftedSwine #BookHimPronto”
Just thought I’d take a little time to do a quick review as it’s the least we can do after all the time Gareth has put into our wedding photos. The first time we met Gareth was for our engagement shoot at Calke abbey and I care to say we underestimated a little the time taken to walk round Haha… But Gareth was more than happy to spend some time with us getting to know what we liked and how we photographed together and we had a laugh walking round.
There may be lots of other photographers and companies out there but not many offer such a personal touch like this which really made the difference to us. This really helped us relax on our big day having already met Gareth which translates into our photos.
Gareth asked us what we wanted from the day and we wanted to see people have fun. This carried across into every photo and it just goes to show how much Gareth treats each couple as more than just another job and the extra prep work that he puts in really makes a difference. Again thanks very much Gareth for giving us 400 perfect ways to remember the best day of our lives
“We were very lucky to have found Gareth as our photographer, as a person and a photographer, he is 2nd to none, on the day of our wedding he was very very friendly, the pictures he took with us were absolutely amazing. Something that I have to comment on is that, so many of our guests thought we had known gareth for a long time, when we had only met gareth once b4 the wedding, me and my wife can not praise gareth enough for just how brilliant he was with our children, thank you Gareth.”
