Full Description
  • You want to remember every aspect of your wedding day for years to come. Not just the colour of your dress or the flower arrangements, but the blissful smiles on your family's faces, the energy and anticipation of the ceremony and the musical tinkle of laughter along with the fizzing clink of champagne glasses. This is my vision and purpose. My photos capture these invaluable, once-in-a-lifetime moments. I see your wedding photos as a piece of art, inimitable, soulful and special, so you'll find I go above and beyond the posed, staged and "generic" wedding photos. My mission is to capture the spirit and feeling behind every look and gesture, and the honest and raw moments that make your day exactly that - yours.
  • Personal Message from the Manager
    Name of Wedding Contact: Chandan Sojitra
    Photographs bring priceless memories to life, so you want to make sure that every moment, every glance and every touch is captured. But you shouldn’t have to spend all of your special day conscious of the photographer hovering around you. I’m renowned for my relaxed, unobtrusive style, so you’ll find I shoot the day as it naturally unfolds, capturing the essence of the occasion through discreet and sensitive shooting. You’ll never feel posed or awkward, so relax - leave all the hard work to me.

FAQ
(10)
What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was at a local town hall. There was no more than 10 people present, including the bride and groom! It was intimate and emotional to say the least!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, Soulful, Intimate, Truthful, Timeless.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I am proud to have turned a hobby into my full time profession. I enjoy waking up and doing something that I am very passionate about!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Whoever you book, whether it be a photographer, a dj, a make up artist or even a decor company, be sure that you and your partner are both comfortable with the person you are dealing with. Make sure you are confident that they understand your needs before booking. If it's a photographer, make sure that you can be yourselves around them; after all, out of all the suppliers, your photographer will be around you the most!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A party loving couple had a box full of flip flops on the dance floor. The sign next to it read "Please help yourselves to slippers and dance the night away".
Describe your typical process with a couple.
All weddings that l am booked for start with an informal chat via phone or e-mail so I can hear about the couple's journey together and all the finer details about their big day. I provide a very personal experience and I liaise with the bride and groom myself, throughout. I give each wedding my full attention, that is why I only take on a limited number of bookings per year.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A candid photo of them sharing a special moment, NOT looking at the camera - a special moment can not be recreated yet it tells their unique story!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A photo of a bride pushing a groom in a trolley, which they stumbled upon in a corridor of the venue. I kid you not - it actually happened! The photo turned out pretty decent though!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
An umbrella, wellies and a smile! I just love rainy photos!
Describe how you got into photography.
I've always been a creative type, but it wasn't until I picked up a camera that I realised my true vocation. From a passion grew a career, as more and more members of friends and family chose me to capture their memorable events. I discovered the power of images to tell a story, but even better, I discovered how happy, special and magical those images could make people feel.
