Olesja of In the Name of Love Photography was fantastic. Her photos online looked exactly the style we wanted – relaxed and creative. We met with her to discuss our ideas and then she did an engagement photoshoot with us as a ‘get to know you’. She’s a bit mad and made us laugh which was ideal since we are not great at posing for photos. It also meant we knew exactly what to expect on the day and we could be confident that she would put the guests at ease too. We were so thrilled with the photos when we got the final copies.
