Stunning photography, naturally
“Maria applies her expertise and imagination and produces images to be appreciated primarily for their skill.”
Julie Proctor – Wimbledon, London
I love taking pictures, it has always been my absolute passion and I am fortunate enough to do what I love everyday. I am a Wedding and Events photographer based in Wandsworth, working in and around London, Surrey and Sussex, (although I am happy to travel anywhere really!)
To me, photography should be fun, natural, relaxed, even playful. It should reflect and portray atmosphere and emotion – and never is this more important than on your wedding day, at your party or special event.
My job is to tell a story, highlighting the spontaneous fun elements, the quiet intimate moments and all the subtle details that are so often forgotten at any event.
I love to capture these moments in a natural way and it’s this natural focus that unpins my whole approach. My style is documentary/reportage, candid style of photography where I place great importance on the use of natural light wherever possible.
I am relaxed, fun, not intrusive and offer a discreet personal service. I will be on hand to help if I’m needed and blend in as a subtle addition to your event if not.
I am also as a graphic designer, which brings another dimension to my work as my mind is always whirring with creative and conceptual ideas. I work in lifestyle and fashion photography which is artistic and contemporary and these influences are reflected in my images. I am passionate about bringing these skills into my wedding photography and event photography to create a set of images as unique as the event itself.
Getting to know you
I place great value on building rapport with clients, in order to understand what your occasion means to you, what you are looking for and to ensure we have a relaxed relationship on the day. This may mean a number meetings and tour of the venue, whatever is necessary to ensure you are comfortable, and I familiar with the setting.
The final details
I will provide you with high quality edited images from your event that will allow you to remember your special occasion for years to come. I offer a range of extras such as Albums, invitations and prints which can be discussed on a bespoke basis depending on your requirements.
I also work with a make up artist and hair stylist, and if you wish, we can come as team. We can create a set of fun pre–wedding or pre-party shots, as well as working together to create a stunning look for you, your friends and family on your special day.
Informal, invisible, incredible
This sums up how I want clients to feel about me as their photographer. I want you to be relaxed and enjoy our relationship as we prepare for your event. I want you to feel that I have observed without being observed. But what means the most to me, is that you are delighted with the final images, and that they transport you back to the place and time of your wedding or special event.
