What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was getting to do the couple shots in three locations! Sometimes there is not a lot of time to do these shots, so it was great to meet a couple that really wanted to put the time into this. We had a beach, lighthouse and an aquarium. The aquarium was a stunning setting and produced some really great images.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
Providing all information on an email and phone call if required and a consultation. We can then go through the plan of the day and anything they need to take into account. If they like to book, they can pay the deposit to secure their date and the rest is payable before the wedding. I turn up, create my magic and then they get proofs before editing.
