Trust this review ....

There are honestly no words. ... But this is a review, so here's a try! The entire experience with Adela was honestly nothing short of top-notch amazing. She was lovely, and accommodating and attentive during our initial meetings. She was in this booking entirely for us. It never felt like a wedding business transaction or anything other than completely special. Side note: I'm a designer, so loved her point of view in the first place, but also had my own ideas for how I hoped that our photos on this most special day would be captured. Adela read my notes carefully and made this happen seamlessly and with complete ease. She worked to capture the most beautiful moments of our wedding day from my notes, and her artistic eye. She had a professional perspective and her attitude and disposition made us all entirely comfortable (as if she was a guest at our wedding). There is so much about all of the people/vendors you hire for your wedding day that is about the talent you see in the portfolio, but equally as important (if not more) is the person themself. The way they handle your interactions, the way they make you feel and their presence while doing so.
I've cried so many tears looking at the beauty that Adela captured on our wedding day. Both the perfections and the beauty of the imperfections. Adela Photography has left us with our wedding day captured in a way that will give us a lifetime of memories of what that day actually felt like. Thank you Adela a thousand times over. We couldn't be happier with our wedding photos.

Wow our weddinf

I found Adela via Hitched, I am so glad I did. What a wonderful talented lady she is. So easy to talk to and nothing was too much trouble.
Adela has such a way with her that she feels like a friend, which totally puts you at ease. She is fun, friendly and so so talented and professional with it.
We were not blessed with sunshine or a sunset due to a January wedding, however her talent made our photos come alive.
Every guest we spoke to observed how hard she worked and that she didn't stop snapping away. However Adela has a way of working that is not intrusive, she doesn't make demands or get in the way, isn't obvious intended crowd or in people's faces.
I can not thank her enough for everything she has done. I also can not express our gratitude and how lucky we are to have had her capture our day.
I am not easy to photograph as I'm always talking and am very expressive. However she got some absolute gems!!!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating a magic we did not think possible.
We will definitely use you again for an event or to capture our dogs, on hopefully a sunnier day.

So accommodating and beautiful result

We chose to hire Adela photography after seeing that she had worked at our chosen venue before, and we fell in love with the intimate photos she had taken up Butser Hill, a stunning countryside venue near us. On the day of the wedding it tipped with rain ALL DAY but Adela still managed to get stunning photos and because she knew how much we wanted our sunset photos, she agreed to schedule them for another evening when the weather was better for no extra charge. The entire album is amazing and has captured so many special memories from our day that will last a lifetime. I would recommend Adela in a heartbeat.

Absolutely Amazing!

Adela was fantastic from the start. We chose her as there was something special about her portfolio- all the photos were warm like everything was taken in the golden hour even if it was indoors!? Beautiful.
We had a zoom meeting as she was coming a long way for our wedding, after that we were certain she would be great. She was so professional but relaxed and passionate about the job.

On the day, Adela was perfect! She managed to sneak around undetected most of the time (based off the amazing natural and angles of photos) but whenever we interacted with her she was so lovely :) she helped everyone feel at ease. We got so many compliments about her, and this even before we’ve seen the photos!

She sent us some photo previews to check we were happy with the editing style before doing them all, and even made some extra changes between colour and black & white at our request.
Now we have received our photos we are delighted. She did such a great job! We didn’t have the best weather, but she still made everything look so gorgeous! I can’t recommend her enough! :)

Professional and personal: absolutely beautiful photos

We felt so lucky to have Adela as our wedding photographer. She is both warm and friendly and clear and professional at all stages of the process. She is an expert at blending in during the wedding, going unnoticed in order to capture many wonderful candid moments. She completely put us at ease for the couple and group photos too. Adela encourages you to talk to each other and move around naturally, and to only pose if you feel like doing so.

Adela sent us an exciting 'sneak peak' gallery very shortly after the wedding, and then our full set of so many excellent photos followed soon after, well within the advertised time frame. We are so happy with the results. The photos capture so many different moments from our wedding, full of personality and emotion. We can't wait to get them printed in frames and photo albums and treasure them for many years to come. We cannot recommend Adela highly enough.

Best photographer EVER!

We cannot stress how happy we are with Adela! We have only had a preview of our wedding images back, but are absolutely blown away with how good she has made us look!

She was professional, friendly, calm and positive, making us feel like we are supermodels!

Adela is also very flexible and worked with us to deliver exactly what we asked for, ranging from the standard wedding shots to wacky and fun creative images!

We did an on site visit prior to our big day, and this greatly helped my wife visualise how the photoshoots would go on the day, which put her at ease. This is a great practice that more photographers need to adopt.

As a hobbyist photographer myself, I could not have asked for a better person to capture our special day!

10/10 would recommend!

Seamless, professional and delightful photographer.

Adela was so fabulous. We had a zoom chat with her prior to booking which was great to see how we got on. On the day she blended in perfectly but was always smiling and a pleasure to have at our wedding. She sent us some photos 2! days after the wedding (which was incredible) to check we liked the style before editing the rest which we received around 5/6 weeks later. We are over the moon with our photos and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

The best photographer

Adela photographed our wedding day on 3rd June and we were so lucky to have her capture our special day. She is an exceptionally talented photographer who specialises in natural, candid photos and capturing the finer details and the beautiful happy memories of the day. She is the loveliest person and so easy to work with.
When we received our full gallery, we were blown away by the photos. The sunset pictures are breathtaking - Adela knows how to work with light and colour to capture the moment.
If you are looking for a photographer, I could not recommend Adela more. She will bring all the best moments and special memories to life.

Couldn't be Happier

Our entire experience working with Adela was incredible! My husband and I live in California but were planning our wedding in Hampshire, UK — which could have presented some difficulties, but Adela made it so easy on us. She made herself available at a time that worked for us over Zoom so we could meet and discuss what we would like to capture on our day. We knew immediately that Adela was the photographer for us!
Our first time meeting Adela in-person was on the wedding day and she really was such a calming presence for us. She would fade into the background at key moments of the day, in perfect position to capture us and our loved ones candidly. I often would forget that we were being photographed, which allowed us to be present in the moment, and resulted in some stunning images. Not only is Adela talented, she is a lovely person and we were thrilled to have her included in our special day.
As promised, she sent over a select group of images within 24 hours, and we could not have been happier. It is amazing that she offers this service and much appreciated. It put us at ease knowing that we had some great photos from the day and it was exciting to know there was more to come!
We received the full gallery within a few weeks and we are absolutely thrilled with the results. We love Adela's photography style and think that her editing is fantastic as well. She made us look great, and we are so happy to have photos that capture the day as beautifully as we remember it. The online gallery is also super easy to use and is a great service!
Could go on and on with wonderful things to say about Adela, but I think her work speaks for itself. We would highly recommend hiring Adela to capture your big day!

Amazing Adela

Adela was amazing! Wonderful value for money and beautiful photographs. She was polite, friendly, professional and discreet. For a couple who don’t like having their picture taken we felt comfortable the whole time, plus there was no awkward posing. Adela captured our day perfectly, we would definitely recommend her, 100%

Best wedding photographer!

We couldn’t be happier with choosing adela as our wedding photographer. We met adela before our big day to go through our preferred style, timings and to get to know each other. She was so attentive, professional yet made us feel completely at ease.

During the day adela worked SO hard!! She was there capturing every moment which really showed in our wedding photographs. Our photos really tell a story of the day, the editing is beautiful and we honestly couldn’t be more happy with them.

We highly recommend adela photography, perfect in every way!

Thank you so much.

Adela captured our special day so beautifully

Adela was such a joy to work with! From first meeting her on zoom for an initial consultation, her skill, professionalism and friendly manner immediately put us at ease and we knew she was the photographer for us. Her communication leading up to our wedding day was prompt and informative. On the day of our wedding, Adela was brilliant at being in the right place at the right time to capture so many lovely candid shots. We had a lot of moving parts and different sections during our wedding day - from a picnic, games and races in the park, to a peaceful golden hour as just the two of us with Adela - and each part was captured so beautifully. It’s been wonderful to be able to relive the day again and again as we’ve looked back at the photos. Thank you Adela for capturing memories that we will cherish for the rest of our lives!
