reportage photography

Beautiful, natural family and event photography

From babies to Grandparents, and all ages in between: from Prom Nights to Wedding Days, Christenings to 60th Birthdays, from Graduation to Retirement parties: all are captured beautifully by Pearl Pictures, in a relaxed and natural style. For the past 10 years, I, Jemma Watts, have shot many wonderful occasions and events for Pearl Pictures all over the UK and Abroad, travelling to places as far afield as Montenegro, Australia and the USA.

With a relaxed and fun personality I am easy to get on with and bring many years of experience to the photoshoot. I know what needs to be done and will do this professionally, paying very close attention to all the details. I like to tell a story with my pictures, which capture the beauty of people and moments, creating everlasting happy memories for all my clients.

Praise for Jemma!

“Personable, professional and very talented”

Jennie Phenix, Phenix Yoga Jemma undertook the photography for our new website on location in India last year. She took some stunning photographs which really help our website stand out. She also made an amazing short Promotional video for us. I would highly recommend Jemma as a talented photographer and more

She is very creative, had loads of great ideas and was completely professional and organised. She was such a pleasure to work with and a great people person. I look forward to working with her again on other projects soon.

Tatiana Ginger We first met Jemma at our friend's wedding in 2010 and before we even saw the results of her work, we were so impressed . The way she was productively snapping away, without really disrupting the flow of the event, all smiles and charm, we decided there and then to book her for our wedding the following more

So 2011 was a start of a great relationship with a professional who understands what we like and always delivers the most outstanding photographs which capture the occasion so perfectly. Jemma has a way of fitting in a crowd of guests as if she was one of them, making them laugh and keeping them on task at the same time. She never misses the right angle or the right moment and since 2011 she has managed to capture so many of our precious memories.

My personal favorite about Jemma’s work is the attention to detail. She knows how much effort goes into preparing for a special event, so I love how she indulges me in covering the seemingly unimportant parts, the flowers, the table settings, the food, the candles but also the tears in my mothers eyes as I said ‘I do’, my daughter hiding under a table at my husbands 40th party all covered in chocolate cake. She got it all for us to look back at.

So it goes without saying that Jemma will be coming, whenever there is an occasion. Except now it feels like an old friend coming to share our day, who happens to be exceptionally good with a camera!

Marianne and Sandro We commissioned Jemma in June 2017 and she was brilliant. She blended in so well, took the in-action ‘candid’ shots we were hoping for as well as the more staged portrait photos. Jemma was completely on brief with the shots she delivered, capturing the day, us, and all our many more

She captured them exactly as the people they are. We loved the day and Jemma’s photography services are our lasting memories! Thank you again, Jemma.

Dafydd & Wanessa Davies Thank you so much for everything last week. We had a great time! Was such a fantastic week and it was really nice to see you having a good time and fitting in so well. Everyone kept asking us how we knew you etc - that’s how well you fitted in!

Carrie Chappell Jemma came to our family reunion last summer to take photos of the day. Jemma arrived promptly and was very attentive looking around and working out where to get the best shots of the day. She had great rapport with the guests and was discreet when taking the shots but also got family members rounded up for big group shots more

Her reportage style was fantastic and she got a great number of memorable photos of the day. We were all delighted with them. I would highly recommend her. She is personable, professional and very talented. We had beautiful albums printed of the day and enjoy looking back over them.

Dani & Henry Nash The photos you took of the entire occasion are absolutely unbelievably brilliant and we are over the moon with them - everyone we've showed them to has said the same thing - Henry's dad said they are the best photos he's ever seen in his life! Everyone has been raving about you ever since - they loved you and thought you were incredibly professional and lovely.

Jane & Andy We were married in Wengen, one of the most beautiful settings in the Swiss Alps. To our complete delight this beauty was expertly captured by Jemma and everyone's amazement who has since perused our wonderful wedding album, which we absolutely treasure.

Nicholla & Chad The photos are beautiful. Thank you so much. There are some absolutely lovely shots in there. We are so thrilled, thank you very much. Also we had a lot of comments on what a nice photographer you were.

Emma & Richard THANK YOU Jemma!  The photos are truly wonderful and fully capture the day.  I feel like I am back at La Pianella all over again.  I cannot recommend you enough.  You fitted into the day perfectly, joined the laughs and became one of our guests.  We could not have asked for more.  You have provided us with the best memories that we can have.  Every time we look at the pictures we can relive our special occasion all over again.


Jemma Watts

I have been photographing people and events for many years and absolutely love it! Every photo shoot I go to is a happy occasion and you can’t beat that for a job. For me the excitement is the joy of meeting so many different people and the variety of the event or occasion, no two jobs are the same.
