What about your business are you most proud of?
I've worked really hard to make my business into an intimate luxury for all my clients - it's not flashy or showy, but when you enter my world, you know that you've come somewhere special. I hold my values at the core of my business and make every client feel like they're valued beyond anything else.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't be afraid to ask questions to your suppliers, after all you're paying for their expertise and experience as well as the product.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love when a couple use photographs of the family in a wedding day as a little reminder to all the special people in their life - whether they're there on the day or not. A little and personal salute to their loved ones. Little photographs wrapped around bouquets is just precious!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We have a long chat about their plans and what they're looking for before they book, then we meet about 4 times on the lead up to their wedding day with an engagement photo session and viewing, a venue visit, final consultation and then I cover their whole wedding day before editing the images and giving a cinematic viewing session in my viewing room.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Confetti! I love it, it's the moment after the formal ceremony and the smiles are genuine, the nerves are out of the way and everyone loves to get involved!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace it! It's part of the story of your day that you'll remember along with everything else. Get your portraits of you looking pristine, then run out into the rain and have some fun!
Describe how you got into photography.
As with most photographers, I've always loved it as a hobby and after photographing friends and family weddings, a few years I decided to retrain and create my own business with the same values and providing the same service that I would like to receive if I was a client. My business completely reflects me.
