About Diana V Photography & Film

If you love beautiful natural photographs that show genuine emotions and capture the unique story and little details of your wedding day, I think we might get on just great. 

My style of photography is natural, honest, vibrant and creative. I love moody light, earthy colours, rustic elegance and working with down to earth people who are in love. My work is all about capturing the mood of your day and telling your story, including all the big and little moments, laughter, tears, craziness and funny little bits in between. 

It's really important to me to get to know you a bit before your wedding day to find out what's most important to you, so I can capture your day in a way that's perfect for you. 

I offer a number of different packages ranging from hourly rates for elopements and registry weddings to full day coverge, with the option to add on a second photographer.

My packages include high resolution digital images, discount on an engagement session, a pre-wedding consultation and site visit, online gallery, and a selection of beautiful print products. 

I'm also super excited to be adding wedding films to my portfolio from the end of 2018. As with my photography, the style of my films is largely documentary and very unobtrusive. It's about telling the story of your day in a simple, yet beautiful and authentic way. 

Have a look at my website for lots of blogs about my recent weddings and more info about how I work.

  • "Magical Pictures"
    Sara on 13 January 2019

    Diana made our day so special. She was so relaxed she felt like one of the wedding party. She was able to capture special moments and use our venue location to capture everything we wanted from our special day. Diana and her team were wonderful and patient even in tight quarters. I would use her again in a heartbeat. I am in love already with our sneak peek photos and can't wait to see the entire package to get our wedding album printed and framed! She truly brings moments to life!

  • "We couldn’t be happier"
    PJ & Hannah on 11 January 2019

    We couldn’t be happier with the images Diana produced for us. On the day Diana was super relaxed and it felt a little bit like hanging out with someone we’ve known for a long time, despite only having one pre-meeting. The images are so good a wedding publication and a wedding dress designer have already expressed an interest in publishing them. We’re looking forward to getting some framed prints and albums put together so we can keep the images forever in a tangible format.

How far in advance should I contact you?

Most people book around a year to a year and a half in advance, so if you are looking for a photographer on a busy Saturday in summer, as soon as possible. It's always worth checking if I have some late availability dates available though.

Do you cover more than one wedding a day?

No

Are you able to travel?

Definitely! I love variety and am always very happy to explore new venues in the UK or beyond. Travel within London and the Southeast of the UK is included in my packages.

What is the charge for travelling?

Travel within London and the Southeast is included. Please get in touch for a quote if you are getting married further afield.

What style of photos do you take?

My style of photography is natural, warm, vibrant and creative. It's all about telling the story of your wedding day, including all the big and little moments, laughter, tears, craziness and funny little details in between. It's usually around 80% documentary where I’m capturing all that’s going on from afar, and the other 20% is where we'll do any family photos you'd like, and take those gorgeous portraits of the two of you. During this time I'll give you a little more direction but it's all very relaxed, and usually fun! Don't worry if you are a bit camera shy, the vast majority of couples I work with are… to begin with.

What kind of technology do you use?

I use professional level Canon and Sony equipment and have 3 camera bodies and wide selection of lenses to cover many different focal length and angles. They also act as a backup in case anything goes wrong on the day. I also carry portable lighting equipment.

Do you use a specific technique or innovative approach?

I love nature, and unusual locations, and working with my surroundings to frame photographs creatively and artistically. I'm a big fan of reflections and shooting from unusual angles, so I always look out for opportunities to create something that looks a little different. It always amazes me how much variety you can get out of one small location, and I spend a lot of time before each wedding exploring the venue and finding interesting spots for your photographs.

What kind of equipment do you use?

I use professional Canon equipment and have 3 camera bodies and wide selection of lenses to cover many different focal length and angles. They also act as a backup in case anything goes wrong on the day. I also carry portable lighting equipment.

Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?

Yes, all my packages include an online gallery which stays life for 12 months after your wedding - great for sharing photos with friends and family.

What''s the delivery time for photographic report?

You'll receive a sneak peek of up to 15 photos within 48 hours of your wedding. The rest of your photos will be delivered within 6 weeks of your wedding date.

Do you send all the photos taken?

I don't limit the number of photos you get, and you will receive the majority of photos taken on the day. I remove obviously "bad" photos, for example where people have their eyes closed or photos that are blatantly unflattering. This will ensure you have a beautiful gallery of photographs.

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

I usually work with an assistant who helps with logistics and lighting on the day.

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

I am part of a big network of wedding photographers, and if the worst should happen, should be able to find a replacement. It would be highly unlikely that you would be left without a photographer on the day. I fully appreciate how important your wedding day is and I would only ever pull out of a wedding if it was a real emergency.

Do you have the rights to publish the wedding photos?

My contract includes a clause that I am able to use some of your photos in my own advertising and portfolio. However, this is negotiable if you would prefer your photos not to be shared.

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

Sure, we can discuss this.

How do you work?

I'm a full time wedding photographer and will have lots of time for you. You are always welcome to get in touch with any wedding questions, photography related or not. I’m also a bit of an organiser, and I like to prepare meticulously for every wedding I shoot. I visit your venue and locations beforehand and work with your MC on the day to make sure I know exactly what’s happening when. Crucially, it's your day, and I want to know what's most important to you, so I can capture it in a way that's personal and meaningful to you. I really want you to enjoy your wedding day, including having your photos taken. I am very passionate about what I do, and I work my socks off for every couple to create something really stunning and unique for you.
