What is your most memorable wedding?
The ones that do things a little differently, like Ben and Zaras millions of Dominos pizza and champagne, or Sarah and Joe serving up dessert from the ice cream van.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, natural, humourous, contemporary, unobtrusive.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The lovely feedback and thank-you cards when people receive their photos.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
As soon as you've found a supplier you love, book them before someone else does.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
The most important aspect is the actual photography, so I make sure the couple have taken a look at lots of photographs and like my style. Then I explain the photography style and how I'll go about photographing the wedding.
Another important aspect is the Photographers personality - you need to like your Photographer as they'll be at your wedding all day, almost another guest! So hopefully we'll get to meet up for a chat (or at least a phone call or video call).
I'll encourage you to ask as many questions as you need, in order to have all the information you need to decide on whether I'm the right Photographer for you. Then it's over to you to think and decide.
If you decide to book me, then we'll do the paperwork and your £100 deposit will secure my services. Once you've booked me then that's another task you can tick off! Around a month before the wedding I'll get in touch again to discuss the photography in more detail, for example the itinerary for the day, any group shots you need and so on.
Around 6-8 weeks after the wedding you'll receive hundreds of individually edited photographs on a USB, and then it's up to you whether you want to talk to me about albums, prints or any other photography gifts.
We discuss (hopefully face to face) my photography service and your requirements, they (hopefully) book, we then go through the itinerary nearer the big day, I turn up on the big day with some cameras, snap snap snap, edit edit edit. The couple then get their pictures back on USB around 6 weeks later. Some couples choose sit down and create an album together, sometimes straight after the wedding, sometimes months after. Oh, and then they recommend me to all their friends :)
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A natural or candid picture of them both together.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Probably the Groom and the Best Man sitting in the bath. You'll find it on my website :)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace the weather, we'll take some pictures under shelters or brollies. Rainfall can look beautiful in photography.
Describe how you got into photography.
Like most people it started as a hoppy, photographing holidays and trips around the world, then I did some weddings for free for friends, then they told me I should do it professionally, so I did.
