Slawa answers your requently asked questions
F. A .Q
How much do you love what you do ?
Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiis much :) I can’t describe how lucky I feel that I am able to do what I do. I feel super enthusiastic about every single wedding I do. I love my couples. I love the wedding industry people. I love that I am responsible for delivering all this wonderful memories from such a special day of peoples lives. I love that I deliver joy.
the flexibility of it. I love the creative part of it and I love that through the Wedding Industry I get to know so many lovely people.
What is your style of photography ?
Hmmmm … With so many styles this days its hard to put oneself under one category. But If I have to I would say I have a contemporary style. A candid approach to photographing weddings with editorial attention to details and creative yet natural portraits. So to explain further, the majority of the photos you will get will be a natural and candid ones with some bridal and couple portraits, family formals and shots of details such as jewellery, dresses cakes, table decor.
What type of weddings do you specialize at ?
I photograph all sorts of weddings. Humanist and civil ceremonies. Religious weddings : Christian and Orthodox.Traditional English Weddings and Fusion cultural and religious weddings ones. But I have to say that my specialty are Asian weddings. Hindu, Sikh, Tamil, Muslim events.
What locations do you cover ?
I am based in London but I am happy to offer my Wedding Photography services all over the UK and Internationally. You can hire me for any sort of Destination Wedding in any corner of the world. Just get in touch and we can work out the details.
Do you offer discounts for multi day weddings ?
Oh, yes. If you are planning an Asian Wedding with few days of celebrations and some pre wedding parties I will be happy to offer you a bespoke discounted package.
How long does it take for you to edit and deliver the photos ?
As I photograph quite a big amount of multi day Asian weddings I might take up 16 weeks to complete my editing. But I always strive to deliver the images within 8-12 weeks in general. Although all this really depends of the time of the year etc. In a summer, when wedding photographers mostly shoot weddings and have a little time for editing them this time frame mght get extended to 16 weeks. But to keep my couples happy I always send some sneak peeks few days after the wedding so they have some photos to share on social media and with family and friends.
Do you provide wedding albums ?
Sure, I do. Parent copies too. You can order them any time you want before or after the wedding. They are beautiful leather or fabric cover story albums. You choose the cover, you chose the photos you want included. I do the rest.
Are you insured ?
Of course I am . I have both professional and public liability insurance. Public Liability insurance is up to 5mln pounds. This is usually the required amount by most of the UK venues.
What equipment do you use ? Do you have a back up equipment ?
I shoot Canon. Always have.
To all my weddings I show up with at least two camera bodies, multiple lenses, flashes, batteries ets. Basically everything i bring is multiplied by at least two.
All the equipment is a high quality and a professional standard.
Do you do engagement sessions ?
Yes, I do offer them. I love them. I encourage you to book them.
They are a brilliant ice breaker. They allow as to connect. They allow you to see how I work and if you are comfortable around me. They allow you to experience the posing in front of a camera as a couple and allow you to see how you look and present yourself on professional photos as they are so different to the selfies we are so used to take.
Basically , engagement sessions make my work on the wedding day so much easier and relaxed and allow us to deliver better images.
I always offer engagement sessions at a discounted price if booked with wedding photo packages.
Do you offer Videography services?
Many of my couples inquire for a combined quote for both Photo and Video. I am a one person company who offers only Wedding Photography but I am happy to suggest or organize a package for both services as I know many fantastic London or UK based Wedding Videographers.
How do we book you ?
To secure the booking and the date I require a retainer fee and a signed copy of my contract. But ideally I would like to meet you before or at least speak to you by phone or Skype. Would be nice to have a little chat. To get to know each other. At the end of the day I will be with you during your Big Day so its important we click.
