Ebourne Images: multi award-winning photographer
Thank you for your interest in Ebourne Images. I am glad you found me. Congratulations first of all on your engagement! I hope your wedding plans going are coming along nicely and you find my wedding photography brochure useful.
My name is Ria, short for Maria. Well, what can I say about myself? Firstly, I was told I was born a photographer. I have loved photography since I was a little girl. Being a qualified artist calls for commitment and imagination. I have been able to use my skills at many of the finest wedding venues in Eastbourne, Sussex, across England and Europe. I have twisted myself into some weird and wonderful positions to create that flawless wedding photo, the years of yoga has proved very handy! I have dangled out of a two-seater plane at 2,000 feet to capture a Pilot wedding, while at the wonderfully bonkers venue of Fawley Hill, I had my ear licked by a curious alpaca as I lined up a shot. Anything can happen on the day :-). Either way, I will bring out the best in you and your carefully chosen surroundings.
You’ll see my style is very natural and relaxed. My wedding photography captures the story of your big day and brings smiles to the faces of you and your loved ones. Most importantly I will be your calming influence and above all your friend for the day and often beyond.
With a first class Fine Art university degree, an Associate qualification from the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers (SWPP) and hundreds of weddings under my belt, you can be assured your wedding memories are in safe hands. These qualifications mean I am among the elite 1-2 per cent of wedding photographers in the country.
I hope you like my work and you feel it’s a match for your wedding day. I am more than happy to have a call to discuss the various options. You can also visit my office for a glass of bubbly to chat about your big day.

The booking process
In order to provide you with the best possible service I only take a certain number of bookings a year. Ideally, I would love to have a brief chat to get to know you and your plans. Once you picked your package, I will send you the paperwork and T&Cs. All I require is £250 booking fee to secure your wedding day.
I love capturing engagement and pre-wedding photo shoots. First of all, they are such a great way for you to get to know me. Furthermore engagement shoots build a nice a bond for the wedding day. Please enquire more if you would like to include this to your package.
Before your big day
During your wedding preparations if you have any questions or need any help, please reach out. I am more than happy to help anything wedding related. I know many fab wedding suppliers, whom I have worked over the years. Either way, one month before your big day I will be in touch to arrange a pre-wedding meeting and to share a brief questionnaire to fill out. This is when the final balance is due.
On the day
I normally start about 2.5 hours before your ceremony to get all the lovely prep images along with your venue. I always have my artistic head, my eyes and my heart to capture incredible moments. From beautiful spring sunset at Stonehenge to the grandeur of St Paul’s Cathedral or a colourful seaside wedding, each bride and groom always has my full commitment from start to finish. I tell the story of the day through my camera via my heart.
Every aspect of your wedding is as important to me as to you. I appreciate that you will have spent time and effort bringing your wedding vision to life. Hence, it is pivotal that every little detail is lovingly and sensitively captured and transferred into the final set of your wedding images. All delicately processed by me so your wedding photos will stand the test of time even when it comes to your precious objects.
Few things brighten up my day more than a glowing testimonial from my couples. For all my weddings, I do my best to get to know each couple and find out their requirements from me. It’s then up to me to deliver. There are no short cuts, it takes planning, preparation and professionalism. I then use my experience to be calm and creative on the day. The testimonials show I create artistic, stylish and natural photography. I put the bride and groom at ease in the right situation and I know when to press the button. The best results, though are always when the bride and groom are at ease and enjoying their day. I take great pride in the testimonials and it inspires me to create more magical moments for future bride and grooms.
After your wedding
You will receive a “sneak peak” shortly after and then within a week or so a further set of of my favourite images online or on social media. You will then be presented with your private online gallery with all your images, which are free to download to all your guests.
However I love to present your wedding photography in the best possible way therefore if you haven’t included a luxury, lay-flat, wedding album onto your package you can still do. The books are hand finished by skilled bookbinders in the United Kingdom. I aim to create a true piece of art to cherish forever.
I love to keep in touch and continue to photograph the changes in your family throughout the years. I always feel blessed when couples come back to me. Whether it is photographing a cute baby bump, a rapidly growing toddler, a very special birthday, your profile picture for that very important new job or your four legged best friends pawtrait 🙂 they are just the best way to preserve memories.
If you refer me to your friends as a little thank you you will receive 24 complementary retro prints (worth (£100) in a presentation box when the referral resulted in a booking.
