What is your most memorable wedding?

Artistic, innovative, creative

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Each couple are different & I like to shoot a wedding that way otherwise each wedding would start looking the same as the last.

What about your business are you most proud of?

Wellies & brollies!!! You can be really creative with the rain & lets face it, the venue has taken up the bulk of your budget so to not use it inside & out & allow you photographer to pull out all the stops to create some fantastic images would be a great shame........trust your photographer.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

The Wedding of Angela & Andrew

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Once booked I arrange a date closer to the wedding for us to meet over a coffee & go through the schedule of events of the wedding & talk about the list of group shots the client wants. We then head off for a pre shoot which usually lasts an hour, this is just so the client can get used to being photographed professionally by me so as on their big day I'm more like one of the guests than a stranger.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Never skimp on the photography, memories will fade so budget for a good photographer to capture all those memories professionally.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

The groom & his ushers pulling a moony (it wasn't for the faint hearted I tell you)!

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

I got my very first camera when I was just 5 yrs old & was forever taking photos. I trained to be an interior designer but after a couple of years decided I wanted to go back to college & study photography...........I passed with distinctions & I worked for myself since 2005.
