Come on in and have a stroll around.
My name is Magdalena Mahdy and I welcome you to Love That Smile Photography – creative and vintage wedding and newborn baby photography. I’m a professional photographer capturing two of the most important days in your life – your wedding and the birth of your newborn baby – throughout Essex, London, the UK and beyond.
Bringing together those cherished moments of love and pure emotion through photography, inspires me the most, and is the main reason I became a photographer in the first place. The memories I capture can be quirky and fun, or beautiful and romantic – this is your day and I’ll be your “eyes” during that day. Let me be a part of your adventure, and in return I’ll take you on a journey with me and my photographs.
Both my wedding and newborn photography style is natural, creative and reportage documentary – photographing real moments as and when they happen throughout the day. Combined with a modern and playful post-editing finishes off my vintage-inspired signature look.
Are we a perfect match for each other? Well, there is only one way to find out, so please feel free to explore my site to find out more about me and what I can do for you on your big day. There is nothing more important than you feeling connected and comfortable with me and my photography.
If you already feel that spark between us, great! Why not simply say hello and get that first date booked into our diaries to get to know each other. I’d love to hear about you and your story.
Your photographer and storyteller,
