A FEW WORDS ABOUT ME AND MY STYLE
I am Alexy - a wedding photographer or maybe I should say wedding photojournalist who focuses on informal and candid rather than posed wedding photography. My passion for photography started when I was only eight years old and my uncle, himself a keen photographer, gave me my first camera. I quickly learned new terms like aperture, focus and film sensitivity. Over the years, I have taken photos at every family celebration, until I finally decided to take it up professionaly. In years 2008-2010 I was a member of Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA). My style of photography involves story telling with a light touch of fine art and portraiture. I do not direct or ask people to pose as I believe that natural photos are better. I have always preferred the atmospheric nature of classic photographs so in addition to the now standard digital photography I am one of selected number of photographers who offer weddings shot on traditional black and white films which I later take the time to develop manually for a superior result.
PHOTOJOURNALISTIC WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY
Remaining unobrusive as a photographer helps me ensure that the photos taken at your wedding are a true reflection of the real emotions and feelings on the day. My photos not only provide a precious visual reminder of your wedding but have the added value of also revealing events, expressions of emotions that you missed or been unaware of on the big day. My only request to the couple is to relax and enjoy your day so I can do my best to document your wedding. Of course it is possible to request some more formal shots to be taken but I advise to keep these to a minimum as it can cause too much disruption and delay to the proceedings. Amongst my various wedding assignments I have worked with different nationalties, ethnicities and religions, making sure that everyone's needs were taken into account. "Trash the dress" photo opportunities can be arranged after the wedding. I usually cover weddings in London but nationwide and worldwide orders are more than welcome.

Prices and Terms and Conditions
My fees start at £1500 and this includes a printed album and a disc with all photos. Prices depend on selected album so for full pricing, availability and information about the package that will best suit your requirements, please get in touch - details at the bottom. I do not charge per hour so I can document the day as good as possible. I will appreciate if you offer me some food during the day. I will not sulk if you don't but I still need a break and the best time to do it is during the dinner. As I document the day as it happens and I do not ask to repeat anything so some moments can be missed because it is not possible to capture everything. The final product is in a form of photos telling the story of the day and I am unable to give you exact number of pictures that you will receive. After all it is not about quantity but quality. Still the value of the moment in my style is higher than perfect sharpness and composition although I always strive to achieve all elements together.
I believe that in addition to the very small sample of my work you would like to see complete weddings in albums so feel free to give me a call or drop me a line in an email or text to arrange a meeting in a convenient location.
