Maria Photography questions and answers

What sets you apart from other photographers?

With years of training under my belt, I know how to pose and guide clients to make them feel relaxed while looking their very best. I use natural lighting as often as possible and make sure my sessions are intimate & fun!

what's your style

My style is candid with a journalistic approach to capturing every single genuine emotion and expression.
I look forward to getting the most original photos. I will still guide you for a few poses but nothing complicated. Make sure to check my Portfolio and all the natural poses!

How many photographers will be there at our wedding?

Most of our wedding collections come with a single photographer, but you are more than welcome to add a second shooter for an additional cost.
For full-day coverage, I suggest the Premium full-day package as it comes with two photographers and a bespoke Fine Art Wedding album.

Do you travel for weddings?

I'm based in Gosport and I mainly cover venues in Hampshire, but I love to travel and won't say no to travelling to a new location! If you choose a destination wedding, you will get the same package prices, for me to photograph your story it may require a travel charge and overnight stay, depending on where it takes place. But no worries, I always try to find the cheapest way to come because I love the way my creativity can create your perfect memory to preserve forever and pass from generation to generation.

when do I get my gallery?

You will receive all your photos in your unique online gallery, which you can download, and share with your family and friends, in a maximum time of 8 weeks (sometimes less depending on the season I photograph your story).

Do I have to order prints through you?

I highly recommend ordering prints through one of my professional vendors, but it isn't required, The difference in quality is huge when it comes to ordering through a professional lab, so I always love to help with prints!

How many pictures will we receive?

I always choose quality rather than quantity and that's why I will choose the best and more significant photos to tell your story. Once I get to know you and the type of couple you are, I can estimate the average number of your pictures. This is because some couples want more candid photos than poses (and vice-versa) and the number of locations you booked affects the quantity of the pictures too.

Do you photograph destination weddings?

Yes! Mostly, weddings in Italy as I'm Italian myself and I can help translate when needed!

what do we do if it rains?

We get more pictures! Is the best time to get messy and get those romantic scenes that you see in the movies!
I always love a nice B&W picture under the rain!
