What about your business are you most proud of?
As a photographer I am in a privileged and unique position. I take my role seriously, which is reflected through everything I do and everything I offer.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Rip up the rule book and do it your way.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Exactly that, any detail that is personal to the bride and groom as a couple. I love to see couples breaking from the normal proceedings and enjoying their wedding day their own way!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
My creative approach is to look and listen with anticipation for those key moments to unfold. I tend to avoid any fuss or awkward posing, whilst producing a vibrant, natural, emotional result. Super relaxed and laid back, as it is important you are comfortable when my camera is around.
I am not here to dictate like a director how the day evolves and more importantly the emotion you feel, I am there to capture those big moments, with all the special parts in-between. Here to tell your story, capturing memories that might otherwise be missed. I like to let the day unfold naturally and capture who you and your loved ones really are.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Tough tough question... Has to be those images away from the hustle and bustle of the day, when the bride and groom can take a moment for each other and take it all in! I try and encourage the couples to focus on each other.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Don't worry about stuff outside your control, remember why you are getting married in the first place. Grab those wellies and brollies for those images with extra drama!
Describe how you got into photography.
I have dedicated most of my life to all things creative, always reverting back to my true passion - photography. Although I cannot stand and say I have 10 or 20 years experience as a wedding photographer, I have spent much of the last 10 to 15 years with a camera in my hand. Many people call me a perfectionist with a real fear of failure, perfect qualities for a wedding photographer.
