"North London - Katherine & Lev"
This testimonial was entered by Maria Assia Photography on 30 April 2018
Maria was the first person we spoke to last year, and nobody came close to her charisma, attention to detail and sense of humour. She was delighted when we initially told her about our day and all of the traditions that would be taking place. We loved the photo books and the way everyone looked so happy and relaxed... Just what we were aiming for. We did go and see others, but stopped looking after 20 minutes of speaking to other photographers, and decided to have a coffee and made the decision then and there to ask Maria. Maria's genuine delight when we returned and asked if she would work with us for our big fat Greek/Russian wedding was confirmation that we had made the right choice. With our bookings confirmed, we just had to wait for the day to arrive. Leading up to it, we had phone and Skype calls to sort out what kind of shots we wanted, who we wanted them with, but always full of laughter. Our pre wedding shoot was like a rehearsal for the big day, and confirmed to us that we had chosen the most amazing person. Morning of the wedding and chaos ensues. Maria was my rock and moral support. Giving me subtle 'it's ok' looks from behind the camera. Priceless tips and advice that is gold dust to a bride, especially with a mad family! Maria's experience and talent knows no bounds. We are so pleased that we chose her, and cannot recommend her high enough. She captures everything you would hope to remember and surprises you with things you didn't even realise happened. Many people didn't even realise they were in a shot, with her perfectly mastered technique. All of our guests said that from the photos seeping through on social media, they were really excited to see the rest of them. Best choice we made throughout the whole wedding planning period... Maria Assia. Thank you for capturing our day. Words cannot express our gratitude, in any language! In you, we have found a wonderful person, who just so happens to be the photographer we will always come back to. Thank you. Katherine & Lev xx
