About Diana V Photography & Film

Hello! Do you love beautiful natural photographs that show genuine emotions and capture the unique story of a moment? Love nature, going off the beaten track, and are a fan of rustic elegance and rich earthy colours? If so, I think we might get on just great.

I’ve been a full-time wedding photographer for the last five years, so weddings are what I know, love and do best

My work is all about telling the story of your day, in a set of beautiful, creative images with a natural, honest and romantic vibe. I usually take a documentary approach for much of the day, observing and capturing all that’s going on. When it comes to your bridal photos, we go for a walk, have a laugh and create some beautiful natural images like the ones you see on my website. Many of my couples are a bit nervous about this part, but it’s very easy and relaxed... promise!

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 and highlight films.

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

Have a look at my website for lots of blogs about my recent weddings and more info about how I work. It would be great to hear from you!

  • "Story telling photography"
    Mr & Mrs Peterson on 10 October 2018

    We are so grateful to have had the pleasure of working with Diana. Diana had an infectious calmness about her and an unobtrusive approach which made everyone feel completely comfortable and this truly reflected in the sincerity of the moments captured on our wedding day. Diana utilised the stunning grounds of the wedding venue perfectly which created a variety of beautiful backdrops to our photographs. We both appreciated Diana’s excitement and passion for wanting to take some photographs in the woodlands as this added an extra element of adventure and spontaneity to our wedding day. Diana’s photography is storytelling in its purest form. The essential moments to all of the natural moments in-between are wonderfully captured to create memories for a lifetime. Our wedding photographs and album are truly everything we could have dreamed of. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Diana!

  • "We couldn't be happier"
    Hannah & Jedd on 8 October 2018

    Where do I start?... I couldn’t have been happier with Diana... she was exactly what I wanted in a photographer! So professional, but yet so relaxed. We have the most amazing photos to remember our special day, along with the most emotional video! We will be using Diana for every other special event... Thanks for everything you did to make our day even more memorable. Hannah and Jedd

How far in advance should I contact you?

Most people book around a year in advance, and if you are looking for a photographer on a busy Saturday in summer, I recommend you book as soon as you have your venue confirmed. It's always worth checking for late availability dates.

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. I charge a flat fee of £200 for travel to anywhere else in Mainland UK and £500 for travel to Europe.

What style of photos do you take?

My style of photography is natural, warm, honest and creative. It's all about telling the story of your wedding day, including all the big and little moments, plus the beautiful details you have chosen so carefully. I take a documentary approach for much of the day, observing and capturing all that’s going on to create a unique visual story that reflects the mood and ambience of your day. Most of my clients also want a few family photos, and I’ll make sure we get these done efficiently. We'll definitely want to allow a bit of time to take those gorgeous couple photos of the two of you. I will have scouted out the best spots for these already, so we can just go for a walk and enjoy creating some beautiful art. During this time I’ll give you a little direction, but it’s all very relaxed and usually fun.

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, quirky locations, and interesting light, and let myself be inspired by my surroundings to compose and light photos creatively. I'm always keen to head off the beaten track and find backdrops for your photos that are a bit different from everyone else's. Location is really important to me, and I spend a considerable time before each shoot. visiting locations and planning your photo shoot.

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 work on my own, unless you book a package with a second photographer.

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. For me preparation is everything, and I prepare meticulously for every wedding I shoot. I visit your venue and locations beforehand and work with your wedding coordinator on the day to make sure I know exactly what’s happening when. I’ll have made plans for where we’ll take your bridal photos and have a plan B (and C!) up my sleeve if it rains or something else unexpected happens. 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, and communication is hugely important to me. We’ll go through all the details before your wedding day, make sure all the timings work, and that you are happy with everything we are doing.
