What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Pets being involved will always be my favourite! I also love sentimental details for family members who can’t be there.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Enquiry, consultation in person or over the phone. Once booked with a deposit, I offer as many consultations and chats as needed. I offer a shot list which can be personalized to ensure all the posed portraits are everything the couple needs! Full payment is paid 3 weeks before the big day. After the wedding is over, a few previews are posted online with the couples consent and the full gallery is ready in 4-5 weeks.

The most loved photos by my clients are the natural ones of the two of them happy together!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas and a sense of humour!
Describe how you got into photography.
I used to be a paranormal investigator and was their photographer, as well as photographing bands and live music on weekends! I got into family and portraits shortly after and then weddings about three and a half years ago
