Cake Smash photographer in London Kent, Essex, Herts

Cake smash photography is a new trend in UK and we truly enjoy to photograph and experience the innocent madness 🙂

Perfect for first, second and third Birthdays, your little one can not only eat the cake but smash it to bits, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate your baby’s birthday than smashing a big cake! So if you missed out on your baby’s first birthday you have a second chance to celebrate big again. A Cake Smash produces brilliant photographs and is fantastically messy fun for all. Why not use the images on your Birthday Party invites?

Being the first mobile photographers to bring Cake Smash photo sessions in (London, Kent, Surrey, Oxford, Essex, and Hertfordshire) your home we love to come up with new themes and ideas. We remove the stress as organising everything in your house when your little one feels safe and happy. Your Cake Smash is tailored to your baby’s favourite things so you can have it decorated to match their bedroom and everything they love. It takes some time and preparation so think about it few months in advance.

Cake smash photo sessions can get very messy so make sure that you have a spare set of clothes for you and your birthday baby. We have lots of fun during these sessions, a few images of your little one will be taken before the cake comes out so they are familiar with the camera and us. Then the cake comes in and we get smashing! We suggest booking your cake smash session at least two months before you want your session to take place.

Our professional cake smash photographer offer the Cake smash photo shoot in 3 packages as you can see in the pricing section on this page, plus 2 options of video coverage – documentary with just bits of edit or cinematic where the goal is 5 min. short cinema look video to be given to the little baby on their Wedding, Bar Mitzvah or other important day as a memento of their first birthday, the people around them giving words of blessing and devotion. We create this trend, so you’re welcome to become one of the pioneers.

You have a question? Please read the F.A.Q. section on this page

To book the day, please get in touch.

Do you shoot Cake Smash outside in London only?

Yes we do. Sometimes additional travel charge will be applied.

Do you give the digital files?

Yes we do! All of them are yours with the second and third packages, edited, print ready in hi-res, having "Home Use Rights" which means that you can print them wherever you want, or share on social media. What about the first package? Choosing the first package you're welcome to order your downloads or prints from your online gallery.

Can you hold the date for me?

We can not hold a date for you without a deposit. A nonrefundable deposit of £100 is required to reserve the date for you. Dates are filled on a first come-first served basis. So don't wait the last moment.

When can we get the images?

We try to deliver up to 2 days after the Cake Smash (sometimes same day), because we know how important for you is to enjoy and share the images with friends and relatives.

Why the photo shoot starts from your arrival?

We don't mind to give some minutes extra if that will make everyone happy, but as you know your baby's habits this is your job to pick the right time when the baby's eaten and awake. If we have to wait for an hour for the baby to have a sleep then the "extra hour" charge will apply.

How many photos do you give?

All of them! Since we photograph digitally, we do not limit the number of photos we take during your wedding day. As each party is unique, we will photograph as much as we feel necessary to capture the great moments of your baby's first birthday. On average we give more than 100 photos, all of them print ready.

Photo session in our house, can you really do that?

Yes, 90% of our Cake Smash photo shoots we do are in our clients' homes. The baby feels safe and relaxed. We have our mobile set ups easy to install. The best photos happen when the baby feels home and enjoys the smashing on all 100%.

How does the online gallery work?

How do we view our Cake Smash images? Welcome to 21st century! No viewing sessions, no time wasting and meetings! All of your photos are uploaded on a private online gallery. This gallery can be shared with friends and family across the globe. This unique service allows you the freedom to view your photos in the comfort of your own home whenever you choose. The gallery has multi purposes, it is very handy not for sharing only but as a speedy proofer when/if we start designing the baby album. Having checkout function you can easily purchase prints, which can be on paper, canvas, frames, T-shirts, puzzles, etc. and get it delivered straight to your home.

When is the final balance due?

Cash on the day, or bank transfer before the photo session day. No cheques!

What is the difference between the documentary video and cinema film?

It is a huge difference! The documentary covers the event as it unfolds with no or a minimum of edit, while the cinema uses more cameras/camera angles, following a staging script which requires ours and yours preparation, different video and sound recording equipment, different edit and finish - movie look. We highly recommend the cinema upgrade as it will give your little one an amazing stylish memory of the day when being projected as a surprise on their wedding or Bar Mitzvah day. Ask for details.

Do you provide birthday cakes?

We work with number of cake bakers but we love the look and taste of Irena's cakes because of her talent and customisation. Our clients usually order 2 cakes from her, 1 for the Smash Cake photo shoot and another for the party. Info and details in the cake's section on this page.

Are your prices too high?

We give the best price on the market for what you get because we give more and it's easy to compare with other colleagues photographers. We wont charge you extra for rights, prints, etc. because you have the edited files and you have full control on your choice of orders.

Can I order an album and how much is it?

Sure thing! Our albums are very modern, highly customisable, hand made in Italy and they're top quality and durability albums with no comparison! We can give you the final price only after having a list with your chosen photos so we can see the number of pages needed, together with your chosen customisation options like cover, boxing, lining, engravings, etc.
