ELENA POPA PHOTOGRAPHY


Pricing Brochure 2022

Hello! I’m Elena

...and I'm so lucky to be able to call wedding photography my career! I pour every bit of my heart into what I do and I get attached to each set of photos I send out to my wonderful couples.

I live just outside London with my other half and little whippet Jimmy, and love to explore the world, its landscapes, cultures and particularly its food. I get inspired by the mix of historic and modern interior designs, the elegance of flowers and ephemerality of seasonal change.

With over 120 weddings under my belt I have a wealth of knowledge I'd love to share with you so that you can make the most of your photography experience.

I'm so flattered you like my style of photography and I can't wait to learn more about what you have planned for your wedding!

My Approach

You’ve planned a wonderful wedding and now it’s time to let all of the precious moments unfold. From the tears at the ceremony and the laughs during the speeches to your closest friends lining up the shots and the wild moves on the dancefloor. I’ll unobtrusively capture your day in all of its unique beauty. I want to tell a meaningful story of your day as the coming together of all the different parts that make it yours -from the details you put so much thought into, the architectural beauty of your chosen venue, your connection as a couple and all the perfectly imperfect moments that happen in between the key events.

My Photography Style

My work combines a candid, documentary approach with emotive portraiture and an editorial influence. During most of the day I’ll be capturing each moment as it unfolds, with each frame carefully selected to create an atmospheric narrative of your wedding day whilst keeping true to my values: honesty and authenticity.

The raw, honest moments full of real emotion are the core of your wedding, as well as the centre of my work. Which is why during our private shoot I won’t pose you but give you a bit of direction if you feel you need it. Nothing contrived. The way I work draws from your connection as a couple and I aim to fill each and every photo with your personalities and style.

Heartfelt portraits. Treasured memories.

The Experience

From the first point of contact you can expect an enjoyable experience working with me. I'll be happy to advise you or your planner with putting together a timeline that allows you to make the most out of your wedding photography and enjoy your day to the fullest.

I'd love to get know each other before the big day, it's so important for me to be able to capture your true personalities. We'll have a chat over facetime and you can ask me anything, tell me all the little details of your wedding day and we can walk through the whole process together, making sure we know exactly what to expect from each other.

I strive to create a beautiful story of your day – one with meaning, with fun, with emotion – one you’ll relive with your loved ones for years to come.

Whether that's in a month or in 50 years time! It's a story to share with your friends and family and to pass

down to your children. An heirloom that stands the test of time.

Testimonials

Maddy and Ben

Marylebone, london, 2021

Elena, I don't know where to start in expressing the biggest thank you to you for the most amazing photographs of our wedding. After our morning with you, I knew that they'd be lovely but they are just beyond my expectations and I just can't thank you enough.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
You really made the whole experience such a special one - from the get go you put us both at ease, directing us where necessary but also allowing us the space needed to authentically capture our day. Looking through the photographs, I feel like I'm right back in my wedding day and considering that neither Ben or myself feel that comfortable having our photographs taken, you somehow managed to capture the true happiness that we felt that day and also of us as a couple.⁠⁠
⁠⁠
They are just totally beyond and we feel so fortunate to have these beautiful memories to look back on.⁠⁠ I can't do your talent justice with words but thank you, thank you, thank you!"⁠⁠

Abi and JM

East london

We are so glad that we went with Elena to capture both our Engagement shoot and Microwedding. We were looking for someone who would be able to capture the chemistry between us as a couple, and the warm, natural and intimate atmosphere of our big day. Elena delivered exactly that and went above and beyond!

She blended in seamlessly with the guests and captured each and every emotion during different parts of the programme. Elena was super helpful in her advice prior to the day and helped us feel comfortable in front of the camera. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and her easy-going personality and calm direction made it easy for us to relax and genuinely have fun in the process of having our photos taken.

Thank you Elena for your creative direction and for your help during our wedding. We cannot wait to hang up these beautiful photos in our new home!

Anastasia and Robert

westminster, london

We are so thankful to have had Elena referred to us as a wedding photographer. From the very first contact we had we were very impressed with her professionalism and lovely nature. On the run up to the wedding she called to go over the day and answer any questions we may of had. On the day itself, Elena was absolutely brilliant making both of us feel very comfortable in front of a camera.


The photos themselves capture our day exactly as we remember it: full of love, happiness and laughter.


Do not hesitate to book Elena for your day, not only will you find an unbelievably talented photographer but you will also meet a wonderfully kind soul .. forever thankful for the memories she captured of our day.

Questions & Answers

How do we secure our date with you?

To book me as your wedding photographer, I will send you a straightforward online contract to read and sign, along with an invoice for a non-refundable booking fee (included in the total package price). Please note that until a contract is signed and booking fee paid, the date cannot be held and is open for anyone to book.

What happens if we need to cancel our booking?

Any cancellations incur the loss of the booking fee. If alternatively you are looking to postpone your wedding to a later date on which I am available, the booking fee is transferrable, but your package will be subject to up-to-date prices.

What happens if you unexpectedly can’t make our wedding?

Fortunately this has never happened before, and hopefully never will, but it’s always good to have a back-up plan. I am lucky enough to be part of several networks of talented photographers who I can call on to take my place in capturing your wedding day if need be.

Should we have videography?

Can you recommend other suppliers?

Wedding videos are a great way to bring back the wedding day memories. If you're hiring a videographer, the best piece of advice I can give you is to look for someone with a similar style and ethos to mine - who doesn't pose people and captures the action as it unfolds rather than fabricating moments. This means we'll work well together, which will likely save time on the day and the results will be gorgeous, I have plenty of recommendations if you need them!

Yes! I'm fortunate to have worked with some of the best suppliers on the

non-traditional wedding scene. Whatever your ideas, I'll likely know someone who can bring them to life for you.

Do you back up our photos?

Absolutely! I back up your photos as soon as I get home from your wedding. Then, once everything is edited, your photos will be online and copied twice onto two separate hard drives. So if you ever happen to lose your USB, I'll have your back.

Can we meet virtually before our wedding day?

Are you insured?

Absolutely! It's definitely a good idea to get to know each other a little bit

ahead of the wedding day. If you’d prefer to meet in person, we can organise a pre-wedding shoot so you can see how I work and ease any nerves you may have about being photographed.

I am, for your peace of mind and mine. In some cases your venue may request to see a copy of my public liability insurance, which I am happy to provide.

I am honoured to have been named one of the top 50 UK wedding photographers by Professional Photo Magazine.
