“La Lente captured wonderful moments from my son’s 21st birthday party. He has a great eye for special moments as well as quirky ones. So pleased not to have the pressure of taking photos myself! Would definitely use them again”

“A friend bought us a photoshoot for a gift after our baby girl was born. Paul was lovely, very professional and able to capture natural shots of our little family. He was patient with our keen puppy and was able to work with a fairly plain canvas in order to create some interesting frames. We were delighted with our photos, would highly recommend!”

“I got a gift certificate for my dad to have a photo shoot done of his car. Paul was exceptional! We had to reschedule at one point due to the weather and Paul was super flexible. On shoot day, everything was done flawlessly – he was precise with timing, very clear on what would work quite nicely and locations around the area. He was also great fun and made the session a memorable one – the photos were incredible and exactly what we envisioned! Would highly recommend La Lente for any photos you would like to get done – thanks again Paul!”

Common questions about hiring a photographer

How many photos are taken?

We take hundreds of photos per hour for any booking to make sure we are capturing the right images based on your booking. Our photography is then crafted to deliver images that suit the booking you have made. So for an event or party there is a story created from start to finish. For commercial photos shoots it would be different angles, positions or design elements to show off a product or service. We then provide a selection of the best photos for you to choose from.

What photography equipment do you use?

We use professional photography equipment from Canon and other brands that include digital SLR cameras, professional lenses and lighting equipment.

Can I change the date of a booking?

You can change your booking date, but your deposit will be forfeited and would need to be paid again for the new date. This is because we would have most likely declined taking other bookings for your date.

How do I get the photos that are taken?

We don't use free services like DropBox or similar. We use a personalised online gallery system that enables you to mark your favourites, share them with friends, order prints and more. You have the option of ordering them on a USB key.

Do I get a copy of the photos on a USB key?

You can select this as an upgrade option. They aren't provided for free as we need to purchase a USB keys, then spend time copying the files, packing, posting and managing the administration to get it sent off. Therefore we offer the personal online gallery as the initial option to get your photos which is free of charge and USB as an optional extra.

How can I pay for the photography service?

Website design can be paid via;
- Direct Deposit
- Credit
- Debit Card
or Direct Debit for ongoing services.

Why can't I get my photos straight after my event?

We have a number of jobs scheduled into our photography workflow at any given time that are processed based on the booking date. We can bring your job forward if required & there are options for 7 day or 24 hour turnaround.

Can the photos be shared with my vendors or suppliers?

All photos provided are for personal use only and not to be used by 3rd parties for their commercial use or promotion. We can provide an option for them to purchase the images that includes a commercial use license. The reason for this is we are using our expertise, equipment and skill to capture photos which is how we make a living, so another business should therefore pay for images they would like to use.

How big are the photos, are they high-resolution?

Typically the hi-resolution digital photos provided are 3MB+ in size per image which are suitable for prints, enlargements, canvas and photobooks.
