Beautiful Photography from Maxeen
Based between the island of Ithaca in Greece and the UK, I mixed my passion for photographer with my love for travel, specialising in both UK and destination weddings. My work could be described as a mixture of editorial and reportage, with a light and contemporary feel. I’m a hybrid shooter meaning I create both digital and 35mm film images from your day, which I believe ensures you the most beautiful results. I only take on a limited number of weddings a year as I feel it’s important for me to be able to give each client the care and attention they need in the build up to such an important chapter of their lives.

Everyone's wedding is perfect for them and part of what I love about wedding's is seeing that come together. It's also a special time when everybody you love in is one room and I see it as a huge honour to be able to document that. More than anything though, long after the music has faded, the food has been eaten and the night has been danced away; you will be left with each other, precious memories and the photographs from your special day. Your wedding photography is an investment in more than just images. You are investing in memories that will be cherished for many years to come - and that's probably what I love most about my job.
First I would suggest you decide how important your photography is to you as this will help you decide on how much you want to be spending on it. Secondly, take time to go through the portfolio and blog of all the photographers on your short list. Do you like their use of light? Do you like the composition of the photo’s? Do all the photo’s from each wedding look like they belong together? Do the images make you say to yourself, ‘Wow! I want my photo’s to look like that!’ Ideally you want photo’s you absolutely love and that will stand the test of time. You want quality. Look at the colours and the image edit. One of the reasons I personally love film photography is due to it’s timeless and natural, true to life quality. Lastly, once you’ve found a photographer who shoots the kind of images you want, in a style that makes you swoon – get to know them. Book an engagement shoot and see what they're like to work with. For me, this is one of the most important things to consider! Your photographer is going to be there with you when you get dressed, they will be there when you walk down the aisle, throughout your couple shoot, reception and into those evening hours as you dance the night away. You need to like them.
As I am based between the UK and Greece, travel arrangements are organised to accommodate each clients requirements. Generally if I am in the UK, this means the client will cover travel costs if the wedding is outside of London zones 1-5. If I am in Greece, the clients covers all travel costs outside of the island of Ithaca. All costs are covered by the clients if the wedding takes place anywhere other than the UK or Greece.
