Describe your typical process with a couple.
Initial meeting, after booking we stay in touch throughout the planning process via email and social media. Often we meet for an engagement shoot at some point. About a month before the wedding we will meet and go through all the details of the day and timings. For most weddings I am there from 2 hours before the ceremony until after the first dance. I have a 4 week turnaround for delivery of edited digital files. I then liaise with my couples over albums, lay-outs and prints.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A beautiful portrait of the two of you that captures some of the emotion of the day.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The groomsmen showing their superhero T-shirts that were hidden underneath their suits.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas! Just make sure you have spoken with your photographer and that you have a rainy day plan in place.
Describe how you got into photography.
Many years ago my hobby was wildlife photography. Then I started shooting children's portraits after my two children were born. A friend convinced me to join her on a wedding photography course and I realised how much the industry had changed since my wedding in 2000. I was hooked and haven't looked back.
