Describe your typical process with a couple.
First we meet, have tea talk about weddings and anything else that pops up.
Then we stay in touch right up till the wedding day when I will arrive at what ever time you like, stay throughout the day right up till you are on the dance floor.
Then later, I sit with a nice cup of tea and edit all your photos to make them look perfect. Nothing heavy, no extra legs or scary plastic faces. Just a light touch.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I never expected to attend a wedding where I would be asked to photograph Darth Vader "force choking" the groom.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Cake! But I reccomend cake for all occasions.
Last time it rained on a wedding day I found myself lying down in the mud holding my camera inches above a lake to get the perfect photo. My Camera is water resistant and so am I.
I love indoor photos with rich shadows and delicate highlights, so if you don't feel like jumping in muddy puddles your photography won't suffer.
Describe how you got into photography.
Alas, my story lacks the part where I discovered a passion for photography at the age of three (I was more into He-Man then).
I was 18, studying disaster management at university and wanted to document my time there, my nights out and fun times with my friends. We didn't have instagram or Snapchat so I made do with a series of disposable cameras, filling the wall with 7"x5" prints from Boots.
Soon the disposable cameras were replaced by a digital camera and a copy of photoshop, but my walls were still filled with photographs and I had found my path.
