Hey, I'm Hektor, a wedding photographer based within Watford, Hertfordshire.
Professional photography is one thing you can’t bank on everyone for, but for me, my professional services are proven by the constant referrals I get from giving the best in what I do. I am the founder of Hektor Lleshi Photography.
A brand I created to meet the needs of clients who need professional photography services for , weddings, family portraits, couples, maternity and any other kind of event. I built this brand out of my passion for photography. Although this is a craft I have always been passionate about, studying for a diploma in photography made me realise that I am a natural. In that sense, photography is my innate ability.
It comes out of me and constitutes my being.
As a photographer based in Watford, Hertfordshire, I've had the opportunity to work with a diverse range of clients. If there are things my clients commend me for, it’s the excellence and creativity I bring into my work, giving them the opportunity to see that there is more to photography than meets the eyes.
I love and enjoy what I do, knowing that I am fulfilling my purpose by doing what gives me satisfaction. My brand is committed to giving our clients a memorable experience.
Married from 4 years to my beautiful wife Besiana, and in love with our little girl Azalea.
Would you like to know more about the process?
Check out some frequently asked questions!
How far in advance should I contact you?
If you like my style, please feel free to drop me a line anytime before your wedding. Some dates are getting booked two years in advance, but some could still be available a month before the big day!
What is the charge for travelling?
Some travel expenses may apply if your wedding is more than 20 miles from Watford, Hertfordshire—please contact us for further details.
What camera do you use?
I'm a Canon shooter and use a full-frame with prime and zoom lenses.
Do you edit the photos?
Yes, every image you receive is individually retouched. For post-production, I use two programmes: Photoshop and Lightroom. The usual process is a colour and lighting adjustment for that atmospheric and unique feel, and light skin airbrushing. Some photoshoots will look different from others depending on the couple's vision and requests. Editing is the biggest part of my work. That's why I do not provide RAW or unedited files.
How soon will we get the photos?
Usually, your beautiful photos will be ready in one month. If a season is particularly busy (usually during the summer months), it might take a week or two longer. But during some less engaged times, you can expect your images in less than a month.
What is your cancellation policy?
In times of a pandemic, my cancellation and rescheduling policies are very flexible and allow you to postpone or cancel your date free of charge in case of further restrictions.
What is the booking process?
There is an easy two-step process to book your date: a signed photography contract and a paid deposit, which is 20% of your chosen package. You can always ask for a draught of the contract to go through before you decide to book.
Some of your couples look like models; we don't know how to pose...
None of the couples on the website are professional models, and almost every single one of them mentioned that they don't know how to pose. It is my job to make people feel at ease in front of the camera. I have a few tricks up my sleeve to break the ice and make anyone loosen up. Although if you are worried you'll look uneasy in your wedding photos, a pre-wedding photoshoot can help with that.
If needed, would you be able to work extra hours?
Yes, I'm there to help and would stay longer for an extra cost.
