What is your most memorable wedding?
One from a couple of years ago in the middle of a heatwave! Swelteringly hot but provided us with some great photo opportunities.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
My style is definitely easy-going... I much prefer natural candids but I'm equally at home doing the 'standard' posed shots.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm most proud of the feedback I get from couples after the event, where they've really appreciated my flexibility. I regularly go beyond the booked time slot, as things are running late...
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
My number 1 tip would be to book the Venue (Church or otherwise) and Photographer as soon as you can! Photographers do get booked quite early!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My favourite personal touch was when a couple invited me to actually eat at their reception! May be a little thing, but it certainly helped maintain my energy levels for the rest of the day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to meet with a couple beforehand, to discuss their day, but also so that they can get to meet me and not feel uneasy on the actual day itself.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The first kiss :) And the glance when the Groom (or Bride) sees his (or her) wife to be for the first time.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I think the most original photo I've been asked to take was me lying on the floor and having a crowd of people in like a rugby scrum crowding over me.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A marquee is invaluable. Failing that, umbrellas!
Describe how you got into photography.
I started off photographing New Borns in the days of film.
