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 :)

There are different prices starting from £429. But I also offer full day packages starting from £899
I offer wedding and events photography
My wedding packages include documentary photography service, group photos, photo session of the bride and groom, free consultation, USB stick with edited photos, photo book, print outs
I take bookings far ahead so there is no time scale for taking bookings. I am very flexible in that matter
No, I focus on one wedding
Yes, I travel around the UK and abroad
I don't charge extra for travelling to the wedding in the UK
I would describe my style as a mixture of documentary and arty style. I've got a photo journalist background and I love natural, reportage style yet romantic wedding photography
I use digital camera Nikon D750 with a range of Nikon lenses and I use Lightroom and Photoshop for editing
I use my camera to create effects with double exposure photos, freezing the movement or long exposure. I love to experiment with light
I use Nikon D750, external flashes and software to edit photos
There is an online gallery on my website from the wedding. The gallery is protected by the password and is available just for the guests from the wedding
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
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.
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
I charge per event or per hour when needed
Yes, no problem with working extra hours
There is extra hour rate charge
I prefer the bank transfer payments
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.
