Helen is a London-based wedding photographer, with ten years’ experience working in the industry. She has travelled the world taking gorgeous pictures that tell beautiful love stories; from the relaxed elopements, to the three-day parties. She understands that most people don’t enjoy having their photo taken, so she will help you and your guests feel totally relaxed and at ease, as she blends into the background, subtly capturing the day’s events as they unfold.
Helen keeps group shots to a minimum, limiting her direction to ensure the most natural results and she will make sure your couple shoot is informal, fun, and a moment of calm away from the days excitement!
You will be able to meet with Helen in person or over skype before your big day. This is a great opportunity to tell her all about your plans, fill her in on the details and timings for the day, and a chance to get to know each other a little better.
Helen did the photography for my wedding and it was simply superb! I found her randomly online but loved her portfolio. I could not have wished for better photos that captured the day - the decor, the events and everyone really enjoying themselves (as well as some very flattering pictures of us!). I cannot thank her enough for the brilliant job she has done. Photography was the thing we had the most generous budget for but Helen was SO worth the expense.
Helen was the photographer for our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner, and wedding. She was patient in working with us to ensure our photos weren't forced. The photos are beautiful and Helen was both professional and personable. I would 100% recommend Helen for any event, my husband and I could not have been happier.
My rate varies according to the day of the week, season and number of hours. For a summer Saturday wedding in London I charge between £2,000-£3000. Outside of London travel costs and accommodation might apply. For midweek and shorter weddings the price will be lower.
Photography - myself plus an experienced second photographer if your wedding is larger. You receive c. 700 individually edited images in high resolution on a private online sharing gallery, plus a highlights slideshow which is great for sharing with friends and family.
My time plus delivery of an online gallery of individually edited images.
Usually a year, especially for popular dates.
Half of my weddings are around London, where I live, the other half are all over the UK and Europe. I've photographed weddings as far afield as Bermuda and New Zealand so no where is too far and I love to travel!
Dependent on location but I keep costs as reasonable as possible.
I am mostly a documentary photographer which means I keep posing and organising to a minimum to allow you to enjoy your day. I will coordinate group photos and take you for a walk for some beautiful and natural couple photographs but the majority of the images will be spontaneous and real.
I use Fuji XT2 cameras which are light and silent and allow me to work really discretely. In the evening I switch to a Canon 5D MK2 with on camera flash for the party shots.
Yes - you will be able to access your photos on a private online sharing gallery with the photos split into different sections according to the day so that they are easy to view and share.
My contract says within 6 weeks but it's usually much quicker than that.
No - I make a selection of around 700 images. The ones that are rejected are repeats, blinks or less than flattering. Less is definitely more and your day will be more than effectively covered.
I have a team of fantastic second shooters to support me on larger weddings.
I have a large contact base and an emergency cover group on FB. It's never happened before but I know that in case of an emergency I can get cover within an hour or so.
Yes - I hold the copyright but I will respect your wishes if you prefer me to not to use your images in publicity.
Not usually but sometimes for smaller midweek weddings.
Of course! I'm very flexible about the length of coverage on your wedding day.
Yes. My usual package is for 8 hours which is usually plenty to cover preparations through to dancing but you can add on extra hours for an additional cost. If I am going to finish late I may need accommodation provided.
I take a booking fee to hold the date and then the balance is due a month before the wedding. I usually take payment via bank transfer but can accept Paypal or other transfer methods if you are based abroad.
