Today I am thrilled to welcome London Wedding Photographer Minna Rossi as a Sponsor on the Plans and Presents Blog.
While based in the South East Minna loves shooting weddings, events, portraits and still life throughout the whole of the U.K.
She captures contemporary and beautiful photography, in a discreet documentary style with a passion for capturing details, candid portraits and fun moments.
I hand over to Minna to tell you all about herself…
Who are you, and what do you do?
“Hi, I’m Minna, a friendly, female, professional wedding photographer based in London.”
When and why did you start your Company?
“Just over three years ago I felt I wanted to (maybe even needed to on some level) get back into the creative industry after a few years in a “normal full time job” to make ends meet.”
“I’ve always taken photos, drawn etc. and did my Ba in design so it just felt like a very natural thing to do.”
“I also wanted to continue interacting with a variety of people so hiding away in a studio didn’t really feel right.”
“After photographing portraits and events, weddings were a quick, natural progression and I loved the buzz, witnessing the strong emotions, joy, excitement and fun atmosphere at weddings so I was instantly hooked!”
“I still feel like I work in customer service though: for me the clients still come first – to hear they are happy makes me happy.”
“Now the only difference is I also get to do what I absolutely love.”
What inspires you?
“A lot of it is what happens on the day: e.g. the photo where the couple are playing around with disposable cameras came about by accident (and is now one of my favourites!).”
“We were all packing up and leaving the the park where we had shot the couple’s portraits and group shots when the groom opened his car door and realised they had completely forgotten they had disposable cameras for guests!”
“I thought it would be a fun idea to take photos of the two of them taking pictures of each other and playing around.”
Do trends influence your work?
“Hmm, not really – it’s more the conversations I have with clients.”
“For example, the vintage look given to photos maybe trendy, but often my clients say they prefer the natural look so obviously that’s what I go by -and vice versa.”
“They may have seen poses or ideas that they may want to incorporate into their set of photos and we throw ideas around together.”
What is your greatest achievement?
“I think all the positive feedback and reviews from past clients.”
“It’s always so nice to get that e-mail saying someone absolutely loves their photos, how the images brought back memories or even showed them moments they had missed on the day.”
“A couple whose wedding I captured in September 2015 said that at the end of the night the cleaners had thrown away a big bouquet of flowers they had on the bar.”
“The bride was so busy with everything going on on the day that she didn’t even get a chance to see them so she had no idea what they looked like until they had a look through the photos!”
“She said she was grateful I had captured lots of little details like this for them.”
What do you see as the future of your Company?
“Hopefully lots more of the same – making memories for couples!”
Thanks so much to Minna for coming on board and I look forward to sharing her work with you all soon.
