FAQ | London wedding, commercial & portrait photographer Rupa Photography

Where are you based?

We are based in London, UK. But we will photograph you wherever you may be.

Will it be you photographing for us?

Yes, it will be Rupa on the day doing your photography for you.

Where do your photo shoots take place?

Its entirely up to you! Your shoot can be at our studio or a quirky place somewhere in London. If you are interested in a family portrait session then it could even be some place that is meaningful to you.

What should we be expecting on the day?

We will meet you at the agreed location prior to the shoot. We recommend meeting at a coffee shop nearby, this means is a good way for me to spend some time with you and learn a little bit about you. We will do a selection of portraits of the children as well as a variety of family shots. It is a great opportunity to get some gorgeous photographs of the family together. All shoots are light-hearted and fun with a bit of gentle direction. Each session is different and has a unique dynamic that flows naturally between you and your family. With some children one can expect to make silly noises, tell jokes, dance, jump around, clap hands, play peek-a-boo and generally have a fun time. Other children may want to sit, talk quietly or play with toys while the camera observes them from afar. Either way our unique style combines a flair for emotive
stunning photography with our ability to capture and create shots that will take your breath away.

How long do our portrait sessions last?

The length on your portrait session will depend on what package you are interested in going for.

Do we need to bring anything along to our shoot?

If you would like to bring some props for the children e.g. a ball, a bike, their favourite teddy, books, some games etc. anything that will help them to relax and take their attention of the camera then you are more than welcome to do so.
We’ll leave these decisions in your capable hands but feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

What should we wear?

For a family portrait session wear whatever you feel comfortable in. We want to capture your characteristics in every way through these photographs. If the weather is cold or raining please ensure that you do bring a coat with you as we wouldn’t want you to catch a chill.

What happens if it rains?

Having been a photographer for 9 years now (and living in the UK) I am completely confident when it comes to shooting portrait photographs no matter what the weather. Although you may not think it but photography wise it is much easier to photograph on a dull grey day than a bright sunny one, when shooting outside, as the light is often more flattering. Some of my best photographs are taken in the unexpected moments. So if you are brave to face the rain we are more than happy to shoot outside. Besides kids in their wellington boots, splashing around in puddles can actually make for some really great images.

Who will pick my final images?

You will. We will invite you into our studio and give you a preview of all your final photographs. You can then pick your photographs and together we can discuss the best way of you displaying your photographs. We have a wide range of products to suit everyones requirements when it comes o deciding how or what you would like to do with your family photos.

How long will it take for me to receive my images after the photo shoot?

You will receive your photographs within 3 weeks of having your portrait session.

Do you travel outside of London?

Yes, we are happy to travel outside of London. In addition to our portrait session fee, shoots outside of London will require an additional charge to cover travel.
