South London Wedding Photographer
Hi, I'm Francesca, welcome to my page!
I'm a documentary south London wedding photographer and I love making wedding stories
I specialise in documentary and unstaged wedding photography and I COVER LONDON AND PART OF KENT
I'm a passionate documentary wedding photographer and I've been doing this professionally for over 5 years. I'm based in Beckenham and I travel around to capture your beautiful wedding stories
My mission is to look for the emotions and every special moment of your wedding day but in a discrete way, blending in until you forget that I'm there. You can relax and enjoy and make the most of your day! I'll make sure I'll put together everything to tell your story with beautiful images.
After years of photography, I found what I really like and what I 'm good at It's the documentary approach. So recording an event with my eyes and my technique. This way of photographing is basically what I am: raw, real, transparent, honest, emotional, fun.
But what is documentary photography?
It's capturing the events and the emotions of a wedding in a natural way. It's also connecting with people and what they feel. Emotional connection is crucial in documentary wedding photography. It's what actually makes a moment, a beautiful image.
I strongly believe that other than a good technic and experience, a good photographer needs to feel what its client feel. I want to feel my clients' unique story and every detail that comes with it.
Whether I’m photographing families, weddings or special occasions, I am focused in observing the events and I search for spontaneous moments of joy, tears, laugh, fun, which in the end, it's what really matters.
Ensuring my couples are comfortable and trust me is crucial and I can't stress enough the importance of bonding with your photographer and find the one who fits. That's why it's crucial to meet you in person or, if we live too far, via Skype. Your wedding is unique and you want to make sure that you hire the right wedding photographer :-).
Once we met and got to know each other, I want to make sure I know exactly what is important for you and we'll talk and discuss about the schedule of your wedding day so to be ready to capture unique moments and emotions of you and your loved ones. I'll explain how I work, what equipment I use and the process which will follow your wedding.
As a wedding photographer, I feel very privileged to cover such an intimate role for you: in fact, I'll be the only person who will observe you practically all day. Even if you don't see me.
MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE
My aim is to document your wedding through a series of unique images which will tell the story of your wedding day, as it is. Unstaged, spontaneous, and relaxed so that you can remember it as it is, for you and your children.
The approach is very natural. However, I do pay attention to the importance of the family formals which I keep light and organised. And for the couple, I will just give a slight direction depending on where the best light is and what I want to create. Apart from this, generally, I try to blend in with the guests and the atmosphere and I will be respectful of the natural flow of the events.
