What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding is different because every couple are different. I have photographed over 500 weddings, they are all enjoyable and beautiful in their many different ways. Weddings are always a wonderful day, being surrounded by happiness all day makes for a great day at work :-)
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
natural, creative, reportage, relaxed, fun
What about your business are you most proud of?
quality product for reasonable price, people recommend me to friends for their weddings, people come back to me for family photo shoots as their family grows,
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
always meet and be happy with your photographer before you book them..... they spend a lot of time with you on your big day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I tend not to have favourites, but flip flops being left out for ladies to change into on the dancefloor - converse shoes for the bride in the colour of the bridesmaids dress are both really cool and comfy things that I've seen done.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We will have a chat on the phone, arrange for a meet up, go through all of the details about your day, you can have a look at some more of my work and decide if you would like to book me. If you do we can do an engagement shoot if you would like, to get you used to the camera before your big day. Your photos are ready approx 14 days after your wedding, if you would like to have an album this can be arranged once you have your photos.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Every couple are different and I ask each couple if there are any shots that they really would like, most couples are happy for me to record their day how it happens - and the favourite photos naturally appear
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
i've been asked for all sorts - reflections in glasses - ghost like trails of brides and grooms walking towards each other - names in sparkler trails, the list is endless, most weddings have something new to offer that a couple would like.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A sense of fun - some great umbrellas - maybe some funky coloured wellies too ?
Describe how you got into photography.
I've only ever been a photographer and camera operator, I worked in Television for 21 years, I had a camera from the age of 8, I can't imagine doing any else.
