What is your most memorable wedding?
My own. It is a reference point for my own feelings, hopes, nerves and dreams in the build-up, during and after my own big day. I know how important it is to book a photographer that puts you completely at ease, and in whom you trust to do an amazing job.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Documentary, Natural, Creative, Emotive, Unobtrusive
What about your business are you most proud of?
The personal touch - I am with you from the moment you book and do everything in house: from the pre-wedding briefings and helping brides on their planning journey to taking the photos on the day and editing the images.
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book suppliers based on their personalities as much as their skills. Photographers, videographers and event planners spend a lot of time with you in the build-up and and on the day so getting the right person is crucial. Don't be scared to call and speak to us!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
There isn't a typical process - I only shoot a certain number of weddings a year which means I can spend quality time getting to know what it important to you and keeping it personal and unique.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Er the couple don't take the photo... focus on soaking up the atmosphere and having a splendid day.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Relax and enjoy the atmosphere. It doesn't change the fact that you're both getting married surrounded by your nearest and dearest. I always run through a Plan B with my clients and have plenty of great advice. Wet weddings can make for incredible images too!
