FRESH AND BEAUTIFUL DOCUMENTARY wedding photography in south london and kent
Hi! I am Francesca, a South London wedding photographer, working around all London and Kent.
You are in the right place If you are looking for an enthusiastic and passionate wedding photographer with a documentary style, you hate posing and complicated things and you want to enjoy your wedding day from start to finish without worrying about the photos.
I'm an experienced photographer in the industry since 2014 and my passion and dedication refined my technique and my vision of photography. My work has been featured in Vogue and in Wedding Fearless photographers. I'm also an award winning photographer in This is Reportage Family where I currently rank in the top 10 in UK
My work is also published in on the Historic England Archive Website where one of my photos was selected in the collection "Picturing Lockdown"
I specialise in the reportage/documentary style, which I also think suits my personality. Honesty, humour and authenticity are very important values for me, in life and at work.
what is documentary photography?
Documentary wedding photography is the art of capturing people and their story in an authentic way. It's the art of capturing simple, common moments and make them special. To do this, the photographer needs to emotionally engage with the people and their feelings. Only then he could fully and truly represent the joy, the laughs, teary hugs and all the emotions of the day. Whether I’m photographing families, weddings or special occasions, I stay really focused on anything that happens around me. I'm always ready with my cameras for moments lasting only seconds to make them live forever.
getting in touch
Ensuring couples are comfortable and that they are placing their trust in me is very important. I usually like to meet my couples in person if possible (if you live in South London) or via zoom if we live too far. This is a very informal chat to understand who we are and most importantly if I'm the right fit for you
how long is enough for a wedding photographer?
Once you are happy about our meeting, we'll go through the booking process with is detailed in the prices section
But how long should you book me for?
It all depends on what you want to remember of your day. If it is just a short ceremony and some group shots, you can book me for just 2 hours. If you only want the ceremony up until the speeches after the reception, then I would suggest a 6 hours service. If you want to capture the whole day, from the getting ready until your first dance and some party shots, then the modern package is the right choice.

So if you are looking for a photographer in South London to cover your special day locally or around Kent and London I'd love to hear from you.
I'm a Documentary wedding photographer and i love telling wedding stories
I moved to the UK from Italy in 2002, so this is my adopted home. I now live in Beckenham, close to Bromley, in Kent.
I'm also mum of two boys and a pretty good wife!
I've always been a creative type but I've discovered my love for photography only in 2009 when I have bought my first "serious" camera and I joined my very first photography course in London.
Since then, the camera has always been a companion of mine.
Other than my job, I like cooking, listening to music and spending time with friends and having naps with my cat.
Being honest and represent authentic moments is the core of my work.
If you like my style and my vision, I'd love to hear from you - get in touch to have a chat
We used Francesca for our wedding in May this year. . What a wonderful experience from start to finish. She was so friendly, genuine and she asked us what we wanted.
The photos of the day were wonderful. She captured the essence of the event so well. The photos were so natural, not staged like you can often get.
She caught so many precious moments we did not even realise. All our guests just loved the photos.
I could not recommend her enough.
Even though I'm based in South London I am happy to travel and very excited to visit different settings and backgrounds
Years of experience allowed me to photograph a multitude of venues, urban, rustic small, large, casual or elegant
