About Helen Abraham Photography

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.


Frequently Asked Questions:


What is the price of your service?

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.


What services do you offer?

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.


What does the wedding package include?

My time plus delivery of an online gallery of individually edited images.


How far in advance should I contact you?

Usually a year, especially for popular dates.


Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No!


Are you able to travel?

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!


What is the charge for travelling?

Dependent on location but I keep costs as reasonable as possible.


What style of photos do you take?

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.


What kind of technology do you use?

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.


What kind of equipment do you use?

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.


Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

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.


What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

My contract says within 6 weeks but it's usually much quicker than that.


Do you send all the photos taken?

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.


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

I have a team of fantastic second shooters to support me on larger weddings.


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

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.


Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

Yes - I hold the copyright but I will respect your wishes if you prefer me to not to use your images in publicity.


Do you charge per hour or per event?

Not usually but sometimes for smaller midweek weddings.


If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?

Of course! I'm very flexible about the length of coverage on your wedding day.


How do you charge extra time?

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.


What are the forms of payment?

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.

    Beautiful intimate Ceremony

    Amazing photographer, able to capture tender, raw, and real moments. Helen was very responsive and sweet, able to photograph our ceremony right before the lockdown. Definitely recommended if you want beautiful pictures to remember forever.

    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.
