The quality of the images and the feedback that i receive from happy couples
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
I'm a sucker for dogs at weddings!
What about your business are you most proud of?
See opposite. I think that the most original wedding photo I've taken was during the bridal prep who decided to have her makeup done on the street. A passer by walked vey close to me as I was photographing, and shot me the dirtiest of looks (see photos). I think it's hilarious!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Candid, Unobtrusive, Natural, Unstaged, Contemporary
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I have taken photographs for well over 30 years. Initially to record the near record breaking barbel (fish!) that I was catching from the river Great Ouse, at the time. As well as wedding photography, I have a thriving landscape photography business.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Don't worry about it! The day is about you, your friends and family, not the weather. Rain makes for great fun photographs!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Holly & Martin's. It was great to be able to document a wedding story over a whole weekend at a beautiful venue!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I give the couple as much consultation and discussion as the want. I make my style clear so that there is a good match between what I do and what the couple want. I pride myself on clear, quick & friendly communication
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Plan early & trust the professionals that you have hired, to do their job. Most importantly of all, however, is it is your day; no-one else's. Do what YOU want!
Describe how you got into photography.
I don't! As a documentary photographer I photograph what I see happen; I don't make things happen. If a wedding is reduced to a list of "must have" shots, it ceases to be your unique day.
