Memory Gate Photography

Your memories our photography
The way we photograph our families has changed, we take pictures with a variety of devices and share them in numerous ways but what’s most important are the memories. We want to create something very special for you and your family, something that can be treasured for many years to come. Something for when your children become parents themselves they can look back on.
Your photos are emotional anchors that are not just mementoes but gateways to your fondest memories. They deserve to be given pride of place in your home in whatever form you choose to have them in. A happy home is filled with happy memories and that is what we hope to create for you.

  • We’ve had 2 photo sessions with memory gate, one when our son was 3 months old and the last when he was 8 months. Both sessions were very quick, professional, my son really enjoyed them and the results have been fabulous, some great memories to treasure. Looking forward to our next session!

  • I would definitely recommend Memory Gate. They were very professional and patient, taking pictures of a newborn can be a very time consuming and tiring day!! The end result is a collection of pictures which are flawless and beautiful. We will be back again without a doubt for our next photo shoot.

  • Thank you Michael for some fantastic shots of Sonny, we are absolutely delighted with the end result. Michael was so patient that each session felt very relaxed which came across in the images he took. Service was great and we’ll certainly be in touch again in the near future. Thanks again! :)

  • We have used Memory Gate several times now – 3 separate shoots documenting the first year of our first born son and now for our new baby daughter. We have always found the photos to be of an excellent standard, fully capturing their personalities. Michael and Marcin are clearly talented photographers but also great at getting the best out of the children for a great photo. We thoroughly recommend them and will continue to use them.

  • Had a wonderful time photographing my little baby when he was 12 days. Michael and Marcin were very professional and patient and the photos were amazing. Would definitely use them again. Thanks guys.

  • Michael and Marcin are a thoroughly professional and creative team. They did a fantastic shoot of our son Leo in our home and the photos were excellent. The only problem was trying to choose a final selection of shots. I would highly recommend Memory Gate to anyone wanting portraits with a bit of flair.

Stunning portraits of your family

Portraiture is the passion that lyes at the heart of everything we do. It’s doesn’t matter if we’re photographing your newborn baby in our Wimbledon studio or your whole family on location on Clapham Common. We hope to capture not only the expressions but the affection, animation, excitement, warmth and devotion.
Photography can be just a simple as pressing a button but we see it a lot more than that which is why we put as much care and attention into every one of your images we photograph, edit and present.

Bumps, babies and beyond

Starting a family is such an exciting time which passes by so quickly. Capturing this time with professional images is the best way to cherish these moments forever. Begin your journey with us with some elegant and stylish maternity portraits taken in the comfort of our Wimbledon Studio. When baby arrives preserve those magical first few days with an exquisite newborn baby photography session.
Your baby will change so quickly in his or her first year which is why we offer a whole year baby photography package capturing your Cherub’s key moments from little 3 month old baby in your arms  to a crawling and perhaps walking toddler!
It’s not all babies, babies, babies, we photograph toddlers, kids, teens and families too and we are more than happy to photograph the whole extended family in one sitting if you wanted us to.
For your family portrait sessions you have the choice of our Wimbledon studio on location. From spring till the autumn we photograph on location in Wimbledon, Clapham, Kingston, Richmond, Epsom, Cheam, Carshalton and further afield on request.
