Exciting, rewarding, intense and beautiful are just a few of the words that describe how I feel when I am behind the camera. These are the feelings that bring me so much pleasure from photography, whether it’s a stunning local seascape scene or a beautiful wedding on the beach, it’s an addiction, continually striving for that perfect image.
With over 12 years of experience documenting countless weddings of every type I've come to realize that wedding photography is totally unique to other photography genres, it's not just about the actual photos or final prints. Technical skills and artistic vision are very important but only a part of what a wedding photographer must be good at. The other part is having great personal skills, being able to work efficiently, politely and manage large groups of people from ages 1 to 91. Making everyone one feel that you are WITH them and instilling in them the confidence that everything is covered perfectly.
Bermuda's popularity for destInation weddings means it's a busy market, in order to ensure complete dedication to each and every couple (as well as my sanity) bookings are carefully limited. From there we work together to plan the day in complete detail to allow you the most time possible with your guests while at the same time capturing all of those must have images as well as those small little details so easily forgotten.
Each season I tighten my style, continuing to define what I like and shoot for a specific look. Clean, simple and vibrant is how I want my images, a classic and timeless style. Bermuda lends itself well to this style of shooting with the amazing range of colours and scenery. With an absolute emphasis on my clients, I work together with them from start to finish to help carry out their perfect day.

"Since 2006, local photographer Gavin Howarth has been capturing the moment when husbands and wives unite in wedded bliss. With almost 250 weddings under his belt, it’s safe to say the highly sought-after photographer is an expert in capturing the biggest day of his clients’ lives. “Experience and intuition play a huge role when working. The working knowledge of Bermuda, its infinitely changeable weather, and the many other aspects of a typical wedding day mean no two weddings are ever the same,” says Howarth. And it’s his unrivaled experience and his desire to seek out the most idyllic settings for his couples that make Howarth the best in his field."
