With so many talented photographers out there, you are right to feel confused or overwhelmed. I know I felt like that when I had to choose my own wedding photographer. So why me? Why should you choose me over another photographer? I thought I’d let my previous couples answer that.
1. I care
‘Berni cares so much about her work and creating a beautiful story. She took time to find out about us, our story and what kind of vibe we were looking for.‘ – Isobel
Photography was never a game of numbers for me. My main aim is to tell beautiful stories for people I am lucky to connect with. Because of that, I only take a limited number of weddings per year (15 maximum). I want to make sure I get enough time to connect with you and get to know your priorities and what you value the most about your wedding day and what that means to you.
2. I will tell your story the way YOU want it to be told
‘You captured our day exactly as I want to remember it.‘ – Laura
My photography service is highly tailored to my couples. I make a point on always focusing on you and tell the story the way you want it to be told. This implies understanding who are the people you care about, what are the little things that mean the most to you, what are you looking forward to on the day and so much more.
Everything was delivered and more, it’s like you could read my mind and knew what I wanted even when I couldn’t articulate it!‘
3. You will feel in safe hands from the beginning to the end
‘There was plenty of communication in the run up to the big day.‘ – Isobel
‘Amazing communication‘ – Blandine
My promise to you is that you will never feel on your own throughout the whole process. I have a very clear workflow and use the best professional systems to make sure I can accompany my clients step by step up to your wedding day. You will receive several brochures with info that will guide you every step of the way and even have your own private mini-website to keep all the documents in one place.
4. Supportive, joyful and unobtrusive
‘She provided friendly expertise without ever feeling like they were intruding on the day. I hate having my photo taken but Berni’s professionalism and efficiency totally minimised the anxieties I had.‘ – TK
‘Berni is an excellent professional and a very supportive person to have around in such an important day.‘ – Leire
‘On the day she was friendly, unobtrusive, caring, thoughtful and captured the happiest day of our life in the most beautiful way.‘ – Isobel
‘It was such a joy to have you spend the day with us, you were so joyful, relaxed and professional‘ – Clementine
‘I loved your enthusiasm and warm personality just as much as your photography skills‘ – Laura
On your wedding day, I want you to forget I am even there. I want you and your guests to be in the moment and enjoy the day as it flows natually. The last thing I want is for you to have to think about your wedding photos as a chore. I will take care of it in the most efficient, streamlined way so you can just relax and feel like everything is under control.
The best compliments I ever received often comes from the wedding guests. They tell me I was ‘a pleasure to spend the day with’ and ‘ a gentle photographer and not pushy’ or that ‘they loved that I was smiling all day long’. These words make me happy and proud and are a genuine testimony of my love for my job.
There are so many wedding photographers out there but Berni is truly exceptional and I can’t recommend her enough.
5. I take OK photos…
…Or so they say.
‘The photos are absolutely beautiful. You are truly and artist. You have really captured the relaxed, happy nature of the event. Everything we had hoped the day would be.’ – Sarah & Chris
‘The most amazing wedding pictures we have ever seen and we are not saying that because it was our wedding! They truly are the most beautiful memories of a great day and everyone (literally everyone from grandpa to the best man to the children to everyone) who saw them just wanted to know who the photographer was and said: “wow” – Giulia & Andrea
Berni is responsive, reliable, personable, and immensely talented.
TK & Bradley
