    Ela is such a chilled out, easy going photographer. She has great ideas and is incredibly creative, yet allows your day to just unfold as you’d like it to, whilst beautifully capturing the moments. She didn’t stop clicking!!! Highly recommend . You can definitely trust her to do a fab job. Sinead & James

  • "Simply the best decision we made!"
    Ryan on 16 January 2019

    I know for a fact my review won't do Ela justice!! She was incredible, such a delight to be around on the day. She had us at ease throughout the build up to our wedding, listened to our requests, got to know us and ultimately delivered a photography service that was totally true to our own style and personalities. Our photos are amazing, we will cherish them forever, her package was great value and we believe booking Ela was the best decision we made for our special day. Soooo many of our guests commented on how lovely Ela was, my mum in particular raved about her! For anyone thinking about booking Ela for your special day, take a look at her site, look at some photos, they are gorgeous, read some reviews, and have a chat with her on the phone, you'll fall in love with Ela as we did, she has a perfect blend of skill, enthusiasm and fun, thank you Ela, we are forever grateful :) Ryan & Rach (Sep 2018)

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

It takes from 2 to 6 weeks to get the photos delivered depending on the time of the year. The wedding season is very busy so the delivery time is up to 6 weeks in that period

The client doesn't get all the photos taken on the day but I select the best ones from the day and there are at least 500 edited photos delivered after the wedding from the whole day

Do you work alone or do you have a team of professionals?

Mostly I work on my own on the day but I've got some packages including two photographers and than I bring another photographer to the wedding and we work as a team. I also cooperate with some videographers and we work together on the day.

In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?

Yes, I work with other photographers so there is always another good photographer to cover.

There is a point in my contract about the publishing rights. The couples agree or not agree to have their photos published

Yes, no problem with working extra hours

How do you charge extra time?

There is extra hour rate charge

What are the forms of payment?

I prefer the bank transfer payments

How do you work?

I like working with people. Catch those special moments of the wedding day. I try to be 'invisible' so people don't feel under pressure or intimidated by the presence of the photographer. I know some people are camera shy so I try to capture natural moments. I don't feel like the wedding should be over taken by the photos. I believe they need to show the beauty of the day and those candid moments and emotions.
