BEATRICI PHOTOGRAPHY

How do we pronounce your weird name?

My name is Alline Beatrici - Alline is pronounced like “panini” which some of my friends actually call me by… I also get people calling me Alien a lot, which is cool!

Where do you live? Can you travel to our wedding?

I am based in Brighton, and I shoot weddings all over the world!
Most weddings I photograph are based around London but I shoot weddings all over the country and overseas! I’ll be shooting in Italy, France and America this year, so get in touch if you’re looking for a destination wedding photographer!

How do we get our photos?

All edited High-Res photos will be sent to you in a USB + you will also get a snazzy private online gallery with all images to view and download from! Your photos will be categorised by parts of the wedding (i.e. ceremony, reception, group shots, dance etc) so your guests can find photos easily + you can share your gallery link with anyone you wish.

We don’t like having our picture taken... What can you do?

I get this from 99% of my couples you’ve seen on this website! It’s cool, I got you!
Whether you’re introverts or extroverts, my goal is for you to look at your photos and recognise your genuine selves and your personalities. So, I will never ask you to do anything that isn’t you. Instead of posing you, I will get you guys to interact with each other, and I will guide you whilst putting you in the most flattering light as I shoot.

Should we add a 2nd shooter?

If you’re having over 120 guests, I strongly advise it.
Adding a 2nd shooter gives us a better chance to be able to capture all of your guests.
I don’t have “assistants” so I only work with a team of photographers who are as equally qualified as me + have a similar photography approach as mine so I can provide consistency to your images. It almost works out if you’re getting two photographers for a bargain of the price!

 

When will we receive our photos?

It normally takes me 4-6 weeks after the wedding to edit and deliver your full gallery.

Can we share our photos on social media?

Yes queen! I follow my couples on social media and I always get emotional seeing them sharing images that I took over the years! I’d love if you could tag me in so that your friends could find my work and who knows! maybe we get to hang out with each other again at their wedding in the future!

What if you are ill on the day?

I have never missed a wedding to this date. It would have to be the most serious illness or awful circurmtances to happen for me to miss your wedding but rest assured I do have back-up plan in place. I’m part of a network of trustworthy photographers spread all over the UK that I could contact to replace me in case of an emergency, or I would, of course, be able to offer you a full refund.

Do we need to feed you on the day?

You totally don’t have to, but I would super appreciate if you do. It’s a long day shooting weddings as I usually start super early in the morning and a hot meal always gives me more energy to shoot the rest of the day.

How can save our date with you?

Get in touch so I can send you my wedding form, and a £400 retainer fee invoice. There is no extra cost to secure your date with me, and this retainer fee will be deducted from your final invoice which I will send you 4 weeks before the weddings date.

A non-review review of the Canon EOS R ft. a love story in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

mirrorless canon eos r for wedding photography

HELLO!

Before we go on, this isn’t going to be a full on technical review.
I have no idea how to do those, and to be honest, I don’t feel like I have a super deep knowledge on technical capabilities or that I’m able to write up a full on review on any camera really.

Here’s what I look for in a camera – I want my gear to behave, not to cause me any back pain + not let it get in the way of working with my couples. 

Full disclosure – I’ve been a Canon user since my first ever camera. I learnt shooting on film with my A-1, moving on to DSLRs and I shot last year’s entire wedding season with my two Mark IV’s.

I started getting really curious when the mirrorless hype started to pop up and most my colleagues started switching their entire systems for these beautiful, silent little cameras. Panic strikes when you feel like you’re not part of the club, and all the cool kids have more modern cameras but still, I decided to wait for Canon to release it’s first kind before trying out any other mirrorless cameras. However, when Canon released their first mirrorless camera, the EOS R, it was hard to find a proper review online, especially coming from a wedding photographer’s point of view.

I feel like the EOS R has been massively overlooked + underestimated by the wedding photography industry here in the UK, so I decided to take a risk and try it for myself.  What I can tell you is that it is already my favorite camera that I’ve ever owned.

+ today I’ll be posting my first shoot with it, on the same day I bought it. Yep… the camera really is THAT intuitive!

So far, I’ve been able to shoot some personal work, a few couple’s shoots and two weddings with the Canon EOS R. My personal top favorite aspects from using this camera are:

the faster + better AF performance in low light. (sharp AF!)
the incredible dynamic range.
that I’m finally being able to (really) go above and beyond with high ISO.
it’s game changer live view speed,
the super lasting battery life (which had always been my main concern when switching to mirrorless).
the camera’s grip + how safe it feels when you hold it. (dudes, it is so light and easy to keep hold of it + once, i actually shot a wild dance floor of a wedding for a whole evening just holding the camera with my bare hands – no straps attached or anything.) 

 


Not having to switch my entire camera system by still being able to use all my current lenses is, of course, the cherry on top of it all.

I’m like, emotionally attached to my lenses. I personally have always thought that Canon’s creamy colours are unbeatable so it is SUCH a winning point for me that just by adding the little EOS R Mount adapter to the camera it allows you to still rock all your EF lenses with it.

Most of all, the EOS R camera is the most intuitive camera I’ve ever shot with. I bought it in Tokyo in one afternoon and on the same day, in the evening, I had a full couple’s shoot in the streets of Shinjuku with it. Keep in mind I never shot on any other mirrorless camera before this.

Shinjuku is an area in Tokyo known for being covered in millions of neon lights of different colours shining from every direction, so I was very intrigued about how the files were going to behave during editing.

I was mega impressed at how easy it was to correct white balance + exposure in situations when all sorts of crazy purple/green lights were reflecting on skin tones throughout the whole shoot.

I’m so curious to try it with the RF lenses now, which will of course be my first purchase after I buy a second body to shooting weddings with. My mind is already blown knowing that I’ll be able to change ISO + aperture + shutter speed at the same time when the EOS R is used with Canon’s RF lenses.

*needless to say, I obviously haven’t been sponsored by Canon to write any of this, they don’t even know I exist + this is all just my opinion, man. 

Thanks so much Steph + Valentin for hanging out with me in the streets Shinjuku for this couple’s shoot. I had a blast with you two and I can’t wait to be back in Tokyo soon!

Here’s some shots of my first couple’s shoot with the Canon EOS R: 

*please note I do add a LOT of “fake” extra grain in LR during my post processing because I personally like the look.  the camera’s performance in low light is so sharp I actually had unsharpen some pictures to get the look/style I initially had in mind for this particular shoot. don’t judge plz.
