About Diana V Photography & Film

Getting married? Congratulations! 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 warm, natural and creative, and I love working with my surroundings to create beautiful and artistically composed photographs. I mix an editorial style to capture all the special moments, laughs and emotions of the day, with a little bit more posed (but still very relaxed) photographs of family, bridal party and bride and groom. 

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 elopement packages to full day coverge, with the option to add on a second photographer.

My packages include high resolution digital images, 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, creative and authentic way. My options include highlight films, as well as full coverage of your ceremony and speeches.

I’d love to hear all about your big day!

  • "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 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 and creative, and is very much about telling the story of your wedding day, including all the big and little moments. I love working with my natural surroundings to create artistically composed and beautifully lit photographs, as well as capturing all the beautiful details you have so carefully chosen, from your shoes to the confetti. There'll be times during your wedding day when you won't see much of me as I'll be hiding behind a pillar or tree to capture all that's going on from afar. For your bridal photos we go for a walk, have a laugh, I'll give you as many ideas as you want and viola - magic! We end up with beautiful memories that show real moments, rather than staged ones. And if you're a bit camera shy, don't worry. The vast majority of couples I work with are. I'll make sure you have a great time and feel relaxed, and the rest falls into place.

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 your photos within 2-5 days of your wedding. The rest of your photos will be delivered within 4 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 and portrait photographer, and weddings are what I know, love and do best! I also know that capturing weddings is a big responsibility - after all, you'll be reliving your big day through your wedding photos for many years to come. It's therefore very important to me to spend time with each couple before their wedding to understand what you are looking for in your photographs and talk through your plans. We often get to know each other better during an engagement session, and I happily bring my experience of having photographed 100+ weddings to your planning process. You can fire away with any questions anytime in the lead up to your wedding and I'll do my best to help.  Location, location, location! Knowing your venue inside out and finding interesting and different spots for your photographs is super important to me. I always location scout before your wedding, which also helps save time on the day, so you can spend as much time as possible with your guests. I also work closely with your wedding coordinator or MC to make sure I always know what's happening when.
