What is your most memorable wedding?
Shooting Michelle and Tony's wedding at Rockbeare Manor, surrounded by stunning scenery of the devon countryside, it was great weather so the speeches we're outside and the laser clay pigeon shooting.

What about your business are you most proud of?
I put a lot of effort and time into the editing process to handcraft a wedding video that is a reflection of the couple, from sound design to colour grading, every detail counts.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't skimp on wedding vendors, particularly video or photography. It's a once in a lifetime event and ultimately, as the age old aphorism goes, 'you get what you pay for' is as apt as ever.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A cardboard cutout of the groom that caused a lot of laughs at the speeches.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to meet if possible to get to know the couple, to discuss my process and see what they want and to make sure we're on the same page.
If everyone's happy we proceed to contract signing and payment. After this I'll send across a short questionnaire with a few short questions including how they met, how many people are giving speeches and to get vendor names - so I can ensure everyone that has been part of the wedding is credited in my shots, from the jewellers to the florist- this isn't essential but is great if possible.
After this it's onto the wedding!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A creative shot. If you have a spontaneous idea for a shot, let me know. Smoke flares can work particularly well for wedding shots.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas outside for cinematic bride and groom portraits in he rain. For group shots I would ideally find at the venue that works.
Describe how you got into photography.
I studied hard at university and went from there, picking up freelance work where I could from music photography to commerical work and eventually picking weddings as my niche.
