Review of Fotovida Photography by Sophie Taylor

I came across Fotovida when searching for a photographer in Leicestershire. We found Sara and Doug via Bark and knew straight away following our first call that they were the couple for us! They were warm, energetic and full of creative and fun ideas for our wedding. They listened to what we wanted from the start and came back with a really thorough plan on how to approach the day. Sara and Doug spent the full day with us from 11am to 9pm and were incredible throughout the day. I had a rather stressful start to my big day and Sara was incredible at keeping me calm and smiling! Looking at the album, I have no idea how they managed to be in so many places at once and get such personal shots without me even noticing them! Sara also spent an extra couple of hours with us during our registry office as we were getting legally married a day before our ceremony wedding at Bridge House Barn. The quality of the pictures are brilliant and they go the extra mile with the wedding pack. For a very competitive price, they produce a photobooth guest book, will fancy dress/silly photos of your nearest and dearest with a written note from each guest, this arrives around 10 days after your big day (depending on time of year), then you receive all your wedding photos on a personalised USB stick, with 40 hand picked photos in a beautiful presentation box. We also paid extra for Sara to produce a full album with 250 photos from the day. Her eye for detail is insane and she puts together and prints the most wonderful, high quality wedding album. This is an added extra but to any bride and groom looking for a full album post wedding, I would HIGHLY recommend Sarah for the job. This was really important for us as we opted for no videographer. They managed to capture the story of our day really well, all through the power of photo! Overall, cannot recommend enough. What a great team!

We had Sara and Doug do our wedding in September. The pair of them are amazing! They were so much fun, made the whole experience wonderful and got us some amazing pics in the process. They made a real effort to know our guests which enabled them to get some amazing pics.

With both parents divorced they had a real challenge getting all the photos we needed and they did so with a smile and pure professionalism.

The photo booth was incredible and all the personalisation that goes in to the guest book (part of the photo booth) is more than worth the small extra. Frankly I'd have paid double. They were such a laugh we insisted they have a pic taken and be in the book.

I could not recommend these guys enough.

Cheers Sara and Douglas!

Sara was an absolute pro from the moment we confirmed she'd be our photographer right through snapping us and our guests on our special day.
On the day we had both Sara and Doug with each following the bridal and grooms party shooting key moments that we will treasure for ever. They were very professional and went all out to get the best photos.
We cannot recommend them enough. Thank you both so much!

Fotovida has captured all the best moments of our wedding, all the smiles and the laughter from our family, guests and even for me & my hubby, Peter. Doug and Sara are very professional and at the same time, they became our new friends whom we would forever be grateful for the wonderful photos which will be forever we would keep. They are the dynamic duo of husband and wife who will take care of your weddings by listening to all your requests and adding their magic on your special day. More power and we definitely recommend Fotovida Weddings. Cheers 🥂

Sara & Doug were our photographers at our wedding in June. I can't emphasise how awesome they were; from the initial meeting, to sharing ideas and planning the day. They were great to have around on the day itself and interacted so well with all the guests. The pictures came out brilliantly and we are so grateful that they captured the day in such a great way that will allow us to remember it perfectly forever. Thank you both so much.

We decided to book Sara and Doug as our photographers based not only on their work I had seen but also how lovely they both are. Sara is so enthusiastic and energetic in every aspect of her work. I met with them beforehand to discuss the style of photos and the details of the wedding. I felt at ease the whole way through the process. They came to see the venues ahead of the day and when my reception venue let me down they adapted seamlessly with the venue change. In fact, Sara helped ease my stress at that time.
The day came and Sara arrived at my parents' house. She fit right in with my relatives and Bridesmaids. She was helpful and went above and beyond photography duties, dressing my daughter.
They both worked tirelessly on such a hot day to get the perfect shots.
A lot of my guests commented how lovely they both were, they were brilliant with the children as it shows in the photos. They kept it all very fun and everyone really enjoyed the photo booth. The album that followed was beautifully hand decorated.
As for the photos... WOW!! They are so stunning. I couldn't believe how beautiful they were and how perfectly they had captured the whole day.
The high level of service didn't end on the day. Sara kept me up-to-date on everything. She consulted me on everything, which made it feel a lot more personal.
The wooden presentation box is amazing. The album is such high quality and really tells the story of our wedding day.
I cannot begin to thank Sara and Doug enough. You have captured our day perfectly and we are so grateful for the memories that we will treasure.
They really took into consideration, who we are and what we wanted rather than a standard shot list. If you want a truly personalised service I cannot recommend Fotovida highly enough. They are just absolutely fantastic!

We have had three photo shoots of the children now and all have turned out fabulously. The quality of the images is excellent. Sara is great with children and ours are particularly tricky! And her imagination is endless. We are so pleased to have such fun photos of the children to always look back on and enjoy. Wish we had known of Sara when they were born. That would have captured a great timeline of images to treasure.

Thanks so much to Doug for our lovely summer photos. Doug took lots of time before the shoot to research what it was that I wanted. He was happy to accommodate all my ideas and added lots of his own too. On the day, Doug was cheerful, relaxed and patient and my boys genuinely had a great time working with him, which resulted in some beautiful photos - there were actually too many to choose from!

I highly recommend the services of Sara and Doug to capture your event or experience. They were so natural and friendly with our wedding guests whilst still providing a highly professional service. They not only produced wonderful formal photos but also captured natural spontaneous moments throughout the day which otherwise would have gone unseen. They listened carefully to what we wanted but also provided some great ideas to compliment. We are over the moon with the end results - thank you so much Fotovida!!

We have thoroughly enjoyed the photoshoot of our new baby boy. Sara was professional, thoughtful and very good with Rupert. It was a very calm, pleasant and special time for us both. As a result we now have stunning photos to cherish forever. Thank you, Sara and Doug!

Fotovida Photography Q&A

Fotovida Photography Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

Sara: I would say there are many factors that contribute to capturing a great photograph of a person. If it is a candid shot, then patience, timing, positioning, creativity and luck! If it is a posed shot, then firstly, you have to care about the subject of your photo and want to show them in their best light. You need to connect with them; if you build a relationship with them and communicate clearly, they will relax and trust you. Then you have to be both determined and patient. Personally, I try to capture the essence of a person, shining through.
Backdrops (location), framing, proximity to the subject, light, time of day, weather and equipment are also important. As you can see, photographers have a lot to think about and need to have many skills as well as talent!
Doug: Being ready to capture authentic moments, being willing to sacrifice your own physical comfort (lay on a dirty floor, get wet, etc) and connecting with your subject

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

Regardless of the project, we need to understand what the expectations of the client are. To find this out, we will ask many questions and for feedback on your favourites from our photography collection, also , we build a Pinterest board with the client, so they can share their ideas with us through the medium of pictures, which is usually easier than with words. We keep the channels of communication open throughout the project and if it's a wedding, then we will meet in person to talk through details closer to the time.

What do you love most about your job?

Sara: That is a really hard question. I love having a satisfied customer, but the whole process is fun and rewarding.
If I am photographing a wedding, I love when everything we have planned for comes together and I love having a front row seat to such an important day in the lives of the couple tying the knot. It's an honour to be involved and it makes me value my own marriage more every time. Photographing a wedding with your husband definitely brings you closer together.
Doug: The satisfaction of getting a great shot and making people happy

What inspired you to start your own business?

Sara: I have always had an interest in photography. As a teenager this moved on to media arts, but it has come back to photography now that I have my own family. Photographing your own children is an inspiration. Additionally, I had been jealous of wedding photographers for years, but it took me a long time to realise the solution! I thought that running a photography business would suit my skills well, as I am creative, self-motivated, enjoy working with people, am well-organised and love being challenged. Before Fotovida, I had been head of department in a school, so I had management skills and training and was good at building a rapport with children.

Why should our clients choose you?

We are dedicated to giving our clients what they want and put all our effort into giving it to them. We are trustworthy, caring, thoughtful and reliable.
They will have beautiful photos that capture their memories and last them a lifetime. They will not be disappointed!
