EMOTIVE, BEAUTIFUL PHOTOGRAPHY

for relaxed and laid-back couples

Meet Georgi

Hi, I’m Georgi!

I’m a Stamford wedding photographer with a real love for documenting weddings in a natural and creative way. I’m so lucky to be doing something I love for people who really care about their pictures. I mostly photograph weddings in Rutland, Stamford and around the East Midlands but rarely pass up the opportunity to travel!

  • Photos that show the real you.

    My photography style is documentary and heart-felt, focusing on the moments that matter most to you.  I love photos which are light, rustic and unscripted (with a dash of humour too!).

    My story began about twelve years ago when I worked as press photographer around the East Midlands. I really enjoyed my time working in journalism but soon realised wedding photography was my true calling and set up my own business in 2011.  I can’t think of any better way to have spent the last nine years and am so grateful to all the amazing couples who have made my dream job possible!

    I believe in photos with meaning.

    As a press photographer, I learned to investigate, to ask questions, and to be flexible. It was important to have a knack for predicting what’s going to happen next and always being ready to catch spontaneous, off-the-cuff moments. Exactly the same skills you need for getting good, documentary wedding photos, packed with meaning and emotional significance.

    I like to get to know you as a couple, and find out which aspects of the day are most important to you so I can give you meaningful, heart-felt pictures. I want to capture you in a way that shows who you are, no painful, cringey poses.

     

  • Photos to last for years to come.

    I treasure my own family photos so much and love the idea that you’ll feel the same way about the ones I take for you, for years to come. It’s a genuine honour to be trusted with your memories.

    I like a more natural edit style so your photos are light, bright and colourful, never over-processed or forced. I want your photos to still be shining 20 years from now.

    A little about me.

    I live with my husband in the quirky little market town of Bourne, close to Stamford and Grantham in the East Midlands. When I’m not out shooting weddings I’m usually working at home or taking long walks with my fella (we’re quite outdoorsy). I’m also a bit of a secret geek, I love nothing more than the latest popular psychology book and I’m also a wannabe polyglot – I love languages (I’ve been trying to learn Hungarian for fifteen years, it’s hard work!).

    Get in touch

    I like to work with relaxed couples who want to have a lot of fun at their wedding rather than spend hours on formal, staged photos. If this sounds like you and you like what you see in my portfolio, let’s talk! I’d love to hear more about you and your wedding plans.

Common Questions


Do we get digital copies of our photos?

Yes, every wedding collection comes with a USB containing all your fully-edited images as high resolution JPEG files. You'll also receive a lovely online gallery to share with your guests and order prints if you like as well.

Can we share our photos online?

Absolutely, please go ahead and share your pictures however you like as long as it's for non-commercial use. If any of your other suppliers would like access to the photos and you're OK with that too, please ask them to contact me so I can help them out.

Can we make our own prints and books?

Yes indeed, though I do recommend using a professional photo lab or your online gallery print facility to ensure they are the very best quality. This way I can personally check all orders and offer technical assistance if required.

How many pictures will we receive?

Depending on your coverage you'll receive anything between 300-500 individually edited photographs. Exact numbers depend on a whole host of factors including the timings of your day, how many guests you're having and whether you choose to book a Second Shooter. There's no limit on the number of pictures I take or edit, if an image is good it'll be included.

How does the editing process work?

I edit a wedding in several stages. First I'll go through all the photos taken and pick out the best shots, so often that's comparing two or three very similar frames and curating a series which becomes your final set. After that I individually edit each photo in my signature style before uploading them to your web gallery. I may edit some images in black and white but can make colour copies available on request.

When will we see our photos?

For weddings happening between October and May you'll normally be able to view your photos within five weeks of your wedding day. In busy times (June-September) this may increase to six weeks depending on workload.

Can we pick the pictures for our wedding album?

Yes. If you'd like a wedding album I'll ask you to pick around 100-120 of your favourite photographs using your online gallery before I set to work on the design. If you struggle for time to do this I'm more than happy to pick an initial selection for you with the option to adjust things once you’ve seen the first design.

When will we receive our wedding album?

Depending on the time of year, your album will take between two/three weeks to design before you approve the layout. As soon as you are happy with the design, the books will be ordered and normally take a further four weeks to be bound, printed, checked and delivered. Turnaround time may be longer over the holiday periods or if you pick your photos later than two weeks after the initial request.

We want to get as many pictures as possible from our wedding. Can we get two photographers?

Yes, I'm very lucky to work regularly with other wedding photographers around the country and have a wide network of second shooters who would love to help capture your day. Please get in touch for more details.

Are you covered by professional insurance?

Yes, I'm fully insured with £5 million Public Liability and Professional Indemnity Insurance as required by most venues.

What happens if it rains?

I'll always work my socks off to get you the very best pictures whatever the weather and am more than happy to go out in the rain to take pictures if you are. If you don't fancy going outside we'll find a covered area or space with nice light inside your venue instead.

Are there any extra costs?

Only if you ask for extra coverage, extra products or a second shooter. Travel expenses are included for weddings within a 100 mile radius of Bourne, Lincolnshire. If your wedding is outside this area we'll discuss any extra mileage or accommodation during your initial consultation. As a sole trader I am not registered for VAT so this will not be added to the price.

About the Blog

While a portfolio is a great way to look at a photographer’s favourite images, I think you can tell a lot more about a photographer’s overall style by checking out their blog. Here are a selection of some of my favourite blog posts from over the years.

Real Weddings

I like to post a good selection of images from as many weddings as I can to show how my photography style works throughout the day. When you’re choosing a wedding photographer it’s good to see examples of a full wedding day start to finish, so everything from getting ready and ceremony to the reception, speeches and evening party.

Published Features

Check out some of the wedding magazines and blogs my fab couples have been featured in. It’s always really exciting to see a weddings in print or on a wedding blog to give newly engaged couples inspiration for their own day in the making.

Reviews

There’s nothing I love more than receiving notes and thank you cards from couples’ whose weddings I’ve photographed. It’s like a little souvenir of the day for me and makes my job feel extra fulfilling.
