I can't recommend Ernie enough - he recently photographed our engagement party and we were so happy with the photos! Not only were the photos fantastic, but Ernie himself was very friendly, arrived on time and we barely noticed him all evening as he professionally got on with his work taking candid photos. Highly recommend!

We had the pleasure of having Ernie as our wedding photographer. The end result is absolutely amazing. The presentation box and website is first class. He is a funny, interesting guy and so discreet, I didn’t see him take most of the pictures, he captured great moments. Thanks Ernie, you made our day so much more special.

Ernie photographed our (very!) small ceremony at Old Marylebone Town hall. The pictures are outstanding and he captured each and every part of the day, from the architecture of the building, a whole host of natural moments and some fantastic posed photos, which he choreographed perfectly to ensure they were the best they could be. Ernie was friendly, personable, professional and put a significant amount of care and attention to detail into photographing the day and capturing all the special moments - he really knows his venues and how to get the most from them. He also managed to be so discrete, that during the ceremony we forgot he was there! The result is beautiful, natural photos that we will treasure! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to others and would certainly use him in the future for other events!

We had two ceremonies over two days and Ernie captured both the civil ceremony and religious ceremony beautifully. Professional, punctual and super friendly. Put as at ease straight away. The final photos were stunning. I can't thank you enough for capturing these beautiful moments for us. Love Mahthab and Usman

We asked Ernie to join us to take photos at our wedding for an hour and a half. He was wonderful! Really friendly and professional, and he put everyone at ease. He was so unobtrusive and just blended in during the big moments, as well as setting up some amazing posed pictures. The pictures are so beautiful - he managed to capture the most special parts of our wedding perfectly. Wholeheartedly recommend.

I have used Ernie several times over the years and each time he has way exceeded our expectations with his high energy approach, and professionalism, always seeking perfection at all junctures. A truly lovely man too, I cannot recommend him highly enough. 1st class *****

Ernie is really helpful and friendly, he made us feel comfortable on the day and clearly knew exactly what he was doing. We were really happy with the photos he took, which are wonderful souvenirs of our wedding day. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him.

Wow I seriously don’t know were to start Ernie is FANTASTIC. He is such a nice guy and seriously put me (nervous wreck) at ease. He knew exactly what we wanted and the pictures are phenomenal. He included our children which was so important to me and got some stunning pictures of them. I would recommend him to everyone. I can’t thank him enough, the pictures will be treasured forever. Thankyou Ernie x x x

We would highly recommend Ernie, he was fantastic on the day, and was extremely helpful and responsive in the build up to the day, even when we had to reschedule at late notice due to lockdown. The picture are brilliant, we can't wait to get the album back!

Ernie has a great eye for artistic shots which is why we chose him as our wedding photographer. He made us feel comfortable from the beginning and was flexible with our choice of locations. We are really happy with our photos and had an amazing day. We would highly recommend him!

Ernie is a fantastic photographer. He is able to put the most camera-shy, awkward people at ease and captured great pictures of our event. It's hard to choose a photographer when all you have are Google reviews but we really got lucky when we chose Ernie! We had great fun during the photoshoot and loved the results.

Ernie was absolutely fantastic. He made us feel completely calm on our big day and was amazing. He scoped out the area around Marylebone that we were having our wedding and found us some amazing spots. We couldn't be happier! Thanks Ernie.

Ernie was an absolute delight to have with us on our wedding day. We met Ernie at a wedding fair in our local area and really enjoyed his natural, unfussy photography style and friendliness. On the day itself he was professional, discreet, and managed to capture every special moment throughout the day (the priests said he was one of the best photographers they'd ever worked with!). It was such a treat to receive his photos on the beautifully presented memory stick, and they are such treasured memories of our wedding day. We would definitely recommend his services. Thank you so much, Ernie!

Ernie photographed our wedding and did an amazing job. He captured a very large number of super high quality and beautiful photos, and was personable and helpful throughout the day. He also developed the photos very quickly after the wedding (within three weeks) so we were able to see all our beautiful pictures before Christmas! Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a wedding photographer in SE London or beyond.

Wonderful photographer.. really captures moments

Ernie took the photographs at our wedding and was absolutely brilliant - he was super helpful on the day, provided us with the pictures incredibly quickly (within one week!) and really listened to what we actually wanted. The photographs are lovely and we couldn't have asked for better. We won't hesitate to recommend Ernie if any of our friends are looking for photography services!

Our experience with Ernie was exceptional from start to finish. He made us feel really comfortable and confident when taking our photos. With his friendly and warm manner, he made us feel at ease and happy to be infront of the camera. He was very patient and understanding with all the family photos!! We highly recommend his excellent service and would certainly be using him again! Elif and Oz Koca

From start to finish Ernie has been fantastic to work with. We absolutely love his photos, so happy with then. So many special moments from the day that we had missed, he captured in great style. His pleasant demeanour is matched only by the incredible quality of his photography. He added so much to our wedding and he has my highest recommendation

We booked Ernie for our wedding photos & we are so happy with the photos he has supplied, he was so easy to work with & was very approachable. We knew once we had met Ernie that we had a photographer who understood our wishes & the end result only cemented those thoughts. We certainly recommend anyone to use his service.

We absolutely loved our wedding pictures! Ernie was super attentive, creative and funny! Nothing was too much trouble and he accommodated our requests without any problems. The pictures are stunning! Could not recommend him enough!!!!

Ernie photographed our wedding and captured some lovely shots of the day. We would recommend!

Ernie recently photographed our wedding and was amazing! Perfect combination of professional and friendly. Captured some wonderful photos and had them processed within two weeks of the wedding. Very happy!

What a talented photographer Ernie Savarese is! Hiring him to take their wedding photographs was certainly one of the great decisions my daughter and her fiancé made. He produced work that captured the atmosphere and feeling of their Big Day so well. The photographs tell many stories of a wonderful celebration, and they will always be a treasured collection - for family and friends, as well as for the Happy Couple! He not only has a creative way of capturing people and moments, but does so unobtrusively, as he makes his way around, ensuring he snaps everyone at some point! Warm and open, everyone responds to him; he has a real gift. Even when taking the more formal group photographs, Ernie is friendly and relaxed, putting people at ease. Yes, we were absolutely delighted with the photographs, and can enthusiastically recommend Ernie for your wedding or special event! You will not regret hiring him! 😉 Anita Delighted Mother of the Bride, London City Wedding

Warm & professional in equal measure: Book Ernie today for your next corporate photo shoot. Ernie is a must-have for any team looking for beautiful, professional head-shots and corporate group photos. Very competitive prices, flexible around your team's schedules and highly sensitive and caring approach to the work - total appreciation for the fact that no one loves having head-shots taken. Outstanding results - everyone in our discerning team was happy and had plenty of options to choose from. Ernie edits his work at speed and to a top standard, always accommodating specific requirements. We are very pleased with both our formal head-shots and our relaxed team photos - our company personality is perfectly captured. Highly recommended! Jen White née Talbott, ISE Partners (investment sector recruitment boutique)

Fantastic photos, but also so incredibly easy to work with. Ernie blended right into our small, intimate wedding, with his charm and charisma. He also had stiff competition from several iPhone-equipped guests, but when we received the final photos we were amazed by what he had been able to capture.

Ernie took amazing photos as well as the second photographer that he used/ brought along. Most importantly he managed to help keep me calm during bridal prep whilst the rest of my family were stressing around me. So many of our guests also complimented on how professional and polite he was. Thank you so much.

Excellent service, very professional, polite, nothing too much trouble, highly recommend. Will have no hesitation in hiring Ernie again in the future, photos are wonderful, lovely experience from start to finish.

We hired Ernie for our Wedding ceremony. He did excellent work, had lots of ideas and took exceptionally good photos. We are very happy with his work and can recommend him without any doubts!

Ernie was brilliant! From our first email contact and meeting for the session, he made us feel comfortable. He was extremely friendly but also very professional. We have three children under the age of 8 and he was amazing with them as well. He knew how to connect with them in the short amount of time so that they were comfortable, which enabled him to take great pictures of our family. We absolutely love the shots Ernie took and could not be happier. His website was also extremely easy to use for payment, receiving pictures, etc. We HIGHLY recommend Ernie to anyone looking for a photographer. He is professional, provides high quality work, and is also very affordable.

Ernie photographed our wedding party, he was professional, discreet, accommodating and the pictures were amazing and delivered speedily!! Highly recommended!!

Very professional, we hardly noticed Ernie at the party, yet he captured every aspect beautifully and was always there, ready to be grabbed to get a particular shot. His turnaround with the photos was super fast too. We won't hesitate to use him again. Highly recommended!

Ernie is extremely professional and super friendly! We have booked him on 3 different occasions so far and will without a doubt continue to do so! He is so easy going and everyone (including toddlers) are comfortable around him! His pictures are brilliant and make me smile every time I look at them! He captures such lovely moments and makes sure nothing is missed. Thank you again Ernie!

We are very pleased that we chose Ernie to photograph our wedding at the Charlton House. His vey natural style of photography captured lots of emotions (some of which were very subtle) on our big day, which is exactly what we asked for. Very professional and very friendly throughout the day. Highly gifted photographer!

Great photographer! We had an amazing time ! Great ideas, very nice pictures and very nice person. Definitely recommended !

We really enjoyed having Ernie photograph our wedding! He was incredibly easy going and went with the flow of the day. He made sure that we were getting exactly what we wanted and showed a few shots so we could get an idea of his style as he was photographing us. After seeing just a few shots on his camera we couldn't wait to see the rest! We weren't disappointed! Ernie has a great eye for lighting and we love our photos!

Ernie is a highly professional and very friendly photographer. He photographed my daughters 18th birthday party and captured the evening very well, creating beautiful memories for my family. I highly recommend him. You will not be disappointed. Once more thank you so much Ernie.

Ernie was the photographer for our small but intimate wedding. Not only is his work first class (our photos look incredible), he's a great guy, and made it really relaxing for us and our guests. Before we met him, he had already spent some time in the area assessing where would be best for photos in terms of lighting, scenery, etc. We will definitely be recommending him to our friends! Thanks Ernie!

We have used Ernie's services for over a year, great guy, super professional and the pictures are top drawer. I would recommend.

I love Ernie's style and approach. He made the photo session so easy and fun. And the photos are fantastic! He captured us brilliantly and they're photos I will treasure forever. I highly recommend him and will definitely be using him again. Go, Ernie!

I found Ernie's pictures on Pintrest, went onto his website and instantly fell in love with his pictures. He's an amazing photographer and even manages to capture the stolen moments. I would definitely hire Ernie for future events.

Cannot recommend Ernie enough! Booked him to take photos at a 60th Birthday Party I had organised. From the minute he arrived he put everyone at their ease with his unobtrusive, friendy yet professional manner. He took a good variety of photos capturing every aspect of the party. Will definitely be using him again & would highly recommend to anyone for any occasion. Thank you again!

I have had many professional head shots taken in the past and these are some of the best. Ernie brought exactly what was needed and that was not just his equipment. He brought a sense of fun and focus that allowed us to get some great shots. I recommend Ernie for producing tailored head shots.

Reviews from Clients

Ernie was the perfect choice for our wedding photographer. Professional, friendly, relaxed…he just makes you feel so at ease. He captured some brilliant memories that will be with us forever…I cannot wait until we have our finished wedding album in front of us so that we are able to look back on our special day! It was a pleasure to work with Ernie, anything we asked of him was never a problem, he really did capture some shots we could never have imagined.
Kimberly
I had the pleasure of working with Ernie for my wedding. I had a very small and intimate ceremony and wanted someone who could capture some beautiful shots in a short space of time. Ernie was nothing but friendly, efficient and professional throughout. He responded quickly to all of my emails and truly helped make our day special. We love the photos that he took and I wouldn’t hesitate to book him for future events, or recommend him to others looking for a quality photographer.

Ernie was a true professional at all times whilst still ensuring we both felt at ease. He was practically invisible throughout the day and produced absolutely wonderful photos capturing the most special of moments.

Ernie was an absolutely brilliant addition to our day – not only did he take natural shots exactly as we had hoped for but he was a pleasure to be around and just fitted in completely with the low key style of our wedding. We are delighted with the photos but also all our guests commented on how comfortable he made them feel and we would thoroughly recommend him to anyone wanting a wedding photographer who puts everyone at ease and who also has an eye for a moment! Cannot praise Ernie highly enough.
Rhiannon & Stuart
I just wanted to compliment you on the most beautiful photos of Christina and Harry’s wedding. Each and every photo is more beautiful than the one before and I am certain it will be difficult to pick and choose favourites as each one is spectacular and watching the video is fantastic and can’t watch the video enough. Seeing the pictures was like reliving the entire wedding and keeping our UK visit very much a part of me. Thank you again for your outstanding efforts and pictures.
Rosemary
Ernie went above and beyond with the service that he provided. As a person who hates having her photo taken I was made to feel so comfortable and his natural way of photographing the day was just beautiful and the photos were more than I could of ever hoped for. All my family and friends have commented on how amazing the photos were and how lovely Ernie was on the day. Defiantly would recommend him to everyone for any occasion.
Hannah & Joe
We first met Ernie during a wedding fayre at the Tudor Barn. We knew within minutes that we had found our wedding photographer… Ernie was such a warm character we all hit it off straight away. It was clear he knew his trade which made us feel confident in his ability. On our actual wedding day Ernie didn’t disappoint! Ernie captured hundreds of amazing shots of us and our wedding party, he made everyone feel comfortable while he set to work capturing images of the day and it really did feel like Ernie was one of our guests rather than our photographer…It was a pleasure to have Ernie at our wedding. All communications we have had with Ernie before and after the day have been professional yet relaxed and friendly. We would highly recommend Ernie to anyone who is looking for a photographer. Ernie was excellent with us and the service he provided was top Class! Thank you Kindly Ernie…
Jonathan
We booked Ernie for our wedding after seeing his photos from our Jubilee street party in Eltham. He manages to capture candid moments that I have never seen before in glorious colour and quality. On our Wedding day he conducted his business without stress to myself or the Bride, and was “behind the scenes” taking pictures without either of us noticing his presence. I only noticed him twice in the church; at the altar once, and when we were walking together up the aisle (obviously!) but he was not only professional, but friendly, smiling and interested in us as a couple, and he took the most amazing pictures of my wife and bridesmaids from getting ready to the first dance and beyond. I think Ernie is a very talented photographer who is far too humble for himself, and he needs to promote himself more! He has given us the most fabulous photos and memories for our big day, which will last forever

Anita – Mother of the Bride
We would highly recommend Ernie as a wedding photographer. We found Ernie through his professional website which demonstrates perfectly his attention to detail and ability to capture those little moments. It turns out that we also had mutual friends who knew Ernie and he came highly recommended. From our initial meet-up and the build-up to the wedding we knew we had made a great choice having Ernie as our photographer. He is a great guy who is very personable and who took the time to identify what we were looking for. Ernie was flexible in his approach and accommodated our timings and requests and we were able to identify these early so that we did not need to worry on the day. Ernie’s photos tell the perfect story of our wedding and he managed to capture great images all day long without being intrusive. Ernie also took the time to check that we were happy throughout the day. We are extremely happy with the photos that Ernie took and the story they tell.
Rob & Amy
Ernie is a very friendly and professional photographer, who made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera lens on our wedding day. From the initial meeting right through to the presentation of the photographs after the wedding, Ernie was understanding of our needs and very adaptable. He made the experience very personal and about us, making sure that the photography didn’t overshadow the proceedings. We were very happy with the quality and variety of the photographs that Ernie took. Before hand we had provided Ernie with some examples of the styles we liked, and he made sure that our photographs reflected these styles. We would highly recommend Ernie as a wedding photographer and wouldn’t hesitate in booking him for another event in the future
Mr & Mrs Love
‘We were lucky enough to book Ernie to be our wedding photographer last December, in between lockdowns!  Not only is he such a lovely chap, friendly and professional, he went out of his way to help us out when wedding dates were shifted due to Covid.  He really didn’t want to let us down.

The final photos that we received shortly after our Wedding day were truly lovely and we couldn’t be happier with them.  The whole process of viewing them and choosing our favourites couldn’t have been easier.  He was also so helpful when we requested some slight alterations to be made and the final album is a fantastic memento of our special day.  We highly recommend his services.’
