Describe your typical process with a couple.
The process that the client enters with me is a seamless process that can again be tailored to the clients needs.
The first part of the process is the initial contact with the client, this can be done through a phone call or a few emails. This part gives me a basic idea and understand of the client wants from me, where the big day is happening. This also gives me a chance to answer any questions about myself the client has.
The second stage is a meeting with the clientele to discuss the details of every aspect of the wedding, such as where the bride and groom pre-wedding pictures will take place, where the first look (if requested by the client) will take place, ceremony and reception locations. Also discussed at this point of contact is photo styles and finishes (although this can be altered later in the process if requested by the client).
The next part of the process is to attend the venues that the big day will take part in. This can be done with or without the client. This gives me an idea of picture opportunities on the day as well as allowing me to get friendly with the staff and environment. This stage allows me to get a further in depth look of how the client wants the final images to turn out.
The final stage is confirmation of booking!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Weather is such a variable thing that as I a professional photographer I can adapt to this situation. If the client are happy to work outside then so I am, umbrellas can make a great look in a wedding photograph! However if the client isn't comfortable with this then I am more than happy to adapt and shoot inside.
Describe how you got into photography.
It all happened by total accident. It was the middle of summer and being a student I was off and bored, one day I picked up my dads camera to go take a picture of the sunset and all of a sudden I caught the photography bug. I found my self spending hundreds of hours a week researching photography and how to take the best picture.
I first started business in 2017 working with car dealerships and car enthusiasts to get high quality professional pictures that they required. My first wedding was in 2017 which was a small event but enough for me to catch the wedding photography bug. As of 2019 my main source of business has been from portrait, event and wedding photography.
