I walked out of a bar management job at the tail end of 2003 to become a photographer.. being a 'people liker' it was clear to me that I would gravitate toward wedding photography over that of taking photos of food. I cut my cloth using film.. digital technology was kicking in but not quite the industry norm so I invested in film camera technology. To me this was a godsend as I had to learn pretty quickly as there was no recourse for checking if the group shot worked or not.. fast forward to 2016 and I am very very lucky in that I do not solely rely on wedding photography as an income, so why is this lucky? It frees me up to take amazing shots, to capture the fun of a celebration, and there it is.. I am confident enough to make sure I am actually covering a celebration not a formality. The key to booking your wedding photographer and pretty much any service for one of the most important days of your life is that we do not get in your way, that the celebration is seamless. By and large most, if not all, photographers are background and not in your face although I have seen it on and off over the years, I digress.

What is your most memorable wedding?
Gosh, where do I start.. the speeches that draw me to tears flag up, there have been a few! One wedding where it decided to pour down however the love was so true that everyone had a fantastic day regardless of the inclement conditions, the rainy group shots were actually great fun.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Thoughtful, innovative, resourceful, non-intrusive & timely.
What about your business are you most proud of?
That my photographs showcase lots of genuine smiles.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Avoid the big prices, if you are planning a true celebration then there is no need to throw lots of money at the day, you are bringing together your favourite people so vendors should be able to fit around you without the extortionate price tags. Enjoy being creative.. there are many wonderful places to hold a celebration. Hmm, that's two tips.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A groom secretly taking harmonica lessons on the run up to the big day then nervously but quite competently pulling it off in front of the whole wedding party.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
It is good to meet early on to see that a couple likes me, a very important element to the day! We can then either agree to meet at the venues to do a walk through where we can establish the best places for photographs. If time does not allow then venue visits are not crucial as I can work quickly on the day to determine the best spots and backdrops for the important photographs.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The mantle piece shot.. the one to be celebrated; a strong pose, well composed and a background that isn't too fussy and complimets the couple. I always aim to have 3 such shots by the end of a wedding.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I wouldn't say that it is the most original but to get 'the' shot whilst aboard the London Eye. There was only one real opportunity to 'nail it' so to speak so the pressure was on. I am pleased to report that we got lots of fab images.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
In Italy it is very good luck to have rain on ones wedding day. I wouldn't put so much emphasis on the weather as it is completely out of your control, in fact, in many ways I would expect rain so you are completely prepared and it won't put a dampner on proceedings!
Describe how you got into photography.
I distinctly remember a school trip to Symonds Yat as a 10 year old armed with my fave kodak 110 film camera. I took a rather pleasing shot of the Wye Valley from high up, when I saw the resulting photograph I recall being pleased with the composition and considered making more of an effort with photography. I studied it at every level up to and including University.
