The Viva La Foto team has been taking beautiful photos for over 18 years!

The founder Maribel had a dream to make beautiful images but also create memories for her clients to treasure for ever.

Starting as a family run business, the studio has expanded massively over the last 2 decades.

We specialise in studio photography (newborn, family, pregnancy and more) and we have branched out into location photography, covering weddings and events all around London, Bromley, Croydon, Kent and Surrey.

We don’t stop there. Alongside Viva La Foto, Viva Events UK champions these events bringing amazing DJ services, magic mirror, 360 video booth and photbooth hire...


Newborn photography is more than just beautiful images. It's about capturing those fleeting, yet meaningful moments of connection between you and your child, creating everlasting memories that will endure.

We recommend you bring your newborn from 4 days to 4 weeks.

We had a great experience with our recent newborn photoshoot. The photographers were friendly and professional, and made us feel very comfortable. They were great with both the baby and our toddler, making sure they were both happy and positioning them to get the best shots. We all had a lot of fun and we love our pictures!

We just had our cake smash here today. Everyone was so lovely and very professional. Marisol and the girls had so much patience with my little one as she wasn’t in a great mood. They went above and beyond and helped me with everything. Can’t wait for the photos.Would highly recommend it for any occasion. Xxx

We had the absolute pleasure of having Maribel from Viva La Foto capture our special day, and we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. Our wedding was a rainy winter affair, which added an extra layer of challenge to the photography, but Maribel handled it with grace, professionalism, and undeniable talent.From the moment she arrived, Maribel exuded warmth and made us and our guests feel incredibly comfortable. Her friendly demeanour put everyone at ease, and she seamlessly integrated herself into the festivities, capturing candid moments that truly reflected the joy and love of our wedding day.The service from Viva La Foto was incredibly efficient. She managed to capture all the essential moments without disrupting the flow of the wedding. Her ability to work seamlessly in the background while still being fully present was commendable.Viva La Foto also provided a Magic Mirror Photo Booth that our guests absolutely loved. It was a delightful addition to our wedding, creating a fun and interactive experience for everyone. The mirror booth was beautifully designed, and the props and backdrops added an extra layer of entertainment. The instant prints provided a tangible memory for our guests, and we now have a guestbook filled with hilarious and heart-warming pictures.In the end, Viva La Foto delivered a stunning collection of images that surpassed our expectations. Maribel managed to turn what could have been a dreary, wet winter day into a magical storybook wedding, and for that, we are forever grateful.If you're looking for a wedding photographer who is not only skilled but also personable and able to adapt to any situation, Maribel is the one. We can't recommend her enough. She is not just a photographer but a true artist who will ensure your special day is beautifully preserved for a lifetime. Thank you, Viva La Foto, for capturing the essence of our rainy winter wedding so perfectly!

We were greatly impressed with the wonderful experience we had with our photographer Maribel!! We also want to thank Elena who edited the images and Amy for the compilation of our wedding album! They offered a warm and highly professional service throughout. We are thrilled with the photos and feel the price was worth every penny. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Maribel and her team to anyone wanting a creative and professional service.

We recommend that you coordinate your outfits, matching colours are always best.

Try to bring items that reflect each person’s personality: toys, football kits, musical instruments - we will leave it up to your imagination. If you are coming with young children please choose a time when they’re as calm as possible to ease the day. All pets are welcome!
