Services From Suman Zaman Photography
Event Photographer - Birthdays, Anniversaries, Christenings
I am a professional photographer and mainly photograph weddings, christenings, family events and parties. My aim is to take photographs that document the event from beginning to end, showing all the various stages. I try to be as unobtrusive as possible and try to capture the natural reactions of events as they unfold.
I am also a regular event photographer for two local schools for their prom night, sports day, performance etc. a lot of my work includes children. Plus I have two children myself and plenty of nephews and nieces and so am at ease in these situations.
I am based in Surrey and work in the surrounding areas and London.

"Suman was a very pleasant and polite man. Although we haven't seen any of the photos yet, he worked hard all the time he was there, and worked very discretely over a long period. We would be very happy to recommend him to anybody

"Suman combines a highly professional approach with a wonderfully personable and good humoured manner. He is simply a superb individual who worked extremely hard on my baby daughter's Christening Day.
Needless to say, Suman was unfailingly calm and he brought a real sense of reassurance to us when things were a little hectic. Prior to the event, Suman communicated with us very frequently to ensure that he was exceptionally well organised.
I highly commend him as an outstanding photographer who worked tirelessly throughout the afternoon. Whilst being an 'invisible' photographer, who in no way disrupted the Serive, he also offered the opportunity for family and friends to have group photographs and this was very popular.
Thank you ever so much, Suman, for capturing our little daughter's Christening Day. We consider ourselves to be very fortunate to have have found Suman Zaman Photography via Poptop and we cannot commend you highly enough."

Suman was very professional and easy to communicate from start to finish. We absolutely loved the photos he took for my daughter's christening. What a wonderful memories captured in photos.

"Suman is absolutely amazing! I booked him in blind faith and I am happy I did.
He came on time as promised, I never had to chase him to check where he was. My timing was poor as the event overran but Suman patiently waited and over performed.
The photos are absolutely beautiful. So much to rant on about but the icing on the cake was the 'photo booth' idea which left my friends with lasting memories.
I would definitely recommend Suman and can't wait to work with him in the future."
What services do you offer?
I am an event photographer and mostly photograph weddings and large events, like birthday parties, corporate gatherings etc. I have photographed in a variety of locations, including The Gherkin, to marquees, to village halls.
What does the wedding package include?
I offer several wedding packages from ceremony only all the capturing the entire day; from getting ready to the end of the night.
Do you cover more than one wedding a day?
No. If I am booked for a wedding, then I am an committed to that one wedding.
What style of photos do you take?
Documentary style. I love to capture interactions between people. Often when they do not realise that a camera is there. I will of course also capture group images and weddings will usually require a few formals at a minimum.
What kind of technology do you use?
I use top end Nikon DSLR cameras. I also carry lighting gear and depending upon the venue and client needs, I can also set up a mini studio at the event. Importantly, I carry a backup of all my gear.
Do you offer any tool to display the photos online?
Yes. The final images are displayed on a secure, password protected website for viewing.
What's the delivery time for photographic report?
I usually send out the final images within a week of the shoot. Clients are then free to pick images for albums, prints or choose the digital files they want.
Do you send all the photos taken?
I review all the images taken and send clients all the final edited images.
In case of unforeseen circumstances, do you have a replacement photographer?
Yes. I have a network of photographers and we cover one another but I have never failed to attend a booking.
Do you offer print and album collections as well as digital files?
Yes! Digital files are forgotten after the initial excitement and disappear in the depths of Facebook, Instagram etc. I always encourage and my clients to consider getting an album of some sorts. They last forever and you, your family and friends will look through the images for years to come. However, I understand that people want digital files and the album packages include digital files for free.
