About Elaine Mayson Photography

I am an experienced professional wedding photographer of 15 years working in London, the Home Counties and Internationally.  My previous career as a classical ballerina has given my work precision,artistry and flair.

From the initial consultation to the wedding day itself and post edit I enjoy working closely with the bride and groom to ensure we capture every moment of your special day.

My style is elegant, romantic and lots of fun!  I like to capture the true essence of your wedding day, from the spontaneous laughs of delight to the tender kiss between the bride and groom and the enjoyment of your family and guests.

I offer a number of packages to suit any budget. All pictures are edited and delivered on a USB stick, high resolution. They are displayed on my on-line albums on my web site, where your family and friends can view your wedding photos and buy on line if they wish.  There are added optional extras of beautiful photo books to purchase.

Please get in touch to discuss your big day and book a consultation.

    Elaine really helped us capture the special moments of our wedding We had 2 meetings with Elaine prior to the big day to discuss our our preferences which really helped the day go smoothly. Elaine was discreet when required and extremely professional at all times. Everything went smoothly from beginning to end. The photos arrived on a USB as beautifully presented which was a lovely touch. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Elaine to any future bride and groom

  • "Skilled & professional"
    Jianling on 18 September 2018

    We write this letter to express our gratitude for her splendid work for wedding. The photos were excellent, and our wedding album was beautifully done. Your work continues to delight our family and our friends. We appreciated the way she met with us before the wedding, to plan out carefully the kinds of pictures to be taken, and we appreciated the helpful suggestions she made along the way. During the wedding day she patiently guided us how to be nice gestured and took lots nice photos for us during a very tight schedule. We would definitely recommend Elaine to anybody looking for a photographer - She is a highly skilled professional and a great individual.
