General FAQ

Splento is a pioneering photography company that connects people, like you, who want to hire carefully pre-vetted and tested photographers in their area.

Splento photographers are on-demand, meaning you can book them with as little as with 4 hours notice in London in just a few clicks and we’ll always have an amazing photographer available.

All Splento photographers are extremely qualified because we only accept the top 1% of photographers who apply. And yes, they are affordable. Splento photo shoots start at just £99 an hour.

Splento allows you to book one of our carefully vetted professional photographers with as little as four hours’ notice. We match you with a photographer who specialises in the type of photography you require, based on their location and availability. You will receive a confirmation email upon booking. Once a photographer is matched, you will receive a second email notifying you of this.
We are vigilant about the photographers we select to join Splento. We interview all of our photographers in person and make sure they are fully qualified in their area of expertise.

All of our photographers are excellent and guaranteed to capture your special moments in the best possible way.

You can trust us to do the job for you. With thousands of happy clients, we must be doing something right. But don’t just take our word for it, see our reviews for yourself.
Exactly the opposite. Splento is not the "budget" photography option. Most professional photographers charge hundreds of dollars for an hour of their time because they need to cover many more hours of business administration. They need to handle their own marketing, billing, networking, branding and much more. Splento does all this for them, enabling photographers to spend much more of their time shooting which means they can charge much less per hour for the same excellent work.

Important FAQ about Booking

If you are particularly happy with the service you receive from a Splento photographer you can rebook them for future photo-sessions. However, we cannot guarantee that the same photographer will be available on your required date. To ensure a seamless and on-demand service, we suggest you book as normal and let us provide you with the closest available professional photographer. All our photographers are equally skilled and we can guarantee great quality, no matter what.
What a lot of people don’t know is that a third of a freelance photographer's time is spent searching for and managing clients and another third is spent retouching photos. This means that only a fraction of their time is spent doing the work they actually love to do - taking photographs! By taking client acquisition and photo retouching out of the equation for photographers, we can offer considerably cheaper prices to customers and keep photographers happier. By booking with the same photographer, outside of Splento, you will pay double or triple rates for the same service and there is no guarantee you will get your photos within 48 hours.
You can book only London based photographers as a Lite or Standard package customer. However, as a Splento Bespoke package customer we can provide you with a photographer wherever you are in the world. For worldwide service, please get in touch with us directly on: 020 3318 6969 or splento@splento.com
Splento offers photographers 7 days a week from 8am to 10pm - these times refer to earliest and latest available appointment times.
We understand that plans can change, so we do allow you to cancel or reschedule your photo-session up to one day before the booked time with no penalty. However, it is worth noting that:
  • If you cancel with less than 24 hour’s notice prior to the photo-session we charge a £35 fee.
  • If you cancel with less than four hours notice prior to the photo-session we charge the total cost of the photo-session.
  • If you reschedule with less than 24 hour’s notice prior to the photo-session we charge a £25 fee.
  • If you reschedule with less than four hours notice prior to the photo-session we charge a £50 fee.
We put these cancellation policies in place to protect our photographers, as they lose income when cancellations occur and need to receive compensation for time they have set aside.
You can request up to two photographers when making your bookings online. However, if you require more than two photographers at your event, please give us a call on: 020 8123 1838 or email at splento@splento.com
For an extra £98, we can send you all of the raw files (unedited photographs) from your photo session. Just select this option when you checkout.
