One of my Grooms, his father passed away 3 days before his wedding, he was terminally ill and had told my groom that he wanted the wedding to go on even if he wasn't there, they gave him a seat at the top table and placed a Wolves FC jersey on the seat (His dad was a lifelong Wolves fan), there were flowers in his spot and a little plauque infront that read 'Gone to the match'
Describe your typical process with a couple.
A couple express interest and I will forward them the details of what is included either via email, over the phone or face to face.
If the couple then decide to book me I send an invoice for my work and my contract, once this is accepted then we will either have a conversation over the phone or a face to face meeting to discuss the finer details. Once this has been done there isnt really much else to do, if the couple want an engagement shoot we will meet for that, but other than that I will email every month or so to make sure they are okay and see how everything is getting on. about a month before the event the balance is due and we will either talk over the phone or meet face to face (or email if the couple prefer) to go through the finer details to make sure that the photography coverage runs smoothly on the day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The large group shot, It isn't always possible to get a photograph of everybody but at least if you get a large group shot you will have a photograph with everybody who attended.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A little girl once asked me to take a photograph of her while she was standing in front of the wedding car holding a sign in front of her face that read 'im cute'.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Describe how you got into photography.
I discovered my love for photography whilst I was serving in the Army, I had always worked in professional engineering and I was dissatisfied with it for a long time but resigned myself to the fact that most people don't enjoy their job, I discovered my love for photography and the more time went on the more I yearned to be a photographer, the first time I shot a wedding I knew exactly what I wanted to do, now here I am.
