What is your most memorable wedding?
All weddings are special, there's little touches, speeches, and events from far too many to pick just one.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, Friendly, Fun, Emotional, Sneaky!
What about your business are you most proud of?
I love how many bookings I get from people who were guests at weddings I've shot. I think it's a great testament to the work that I do on the day and the photos I produce that people will want me for their own special days.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Ask yourself "will this decision make me happy" with whatever you plan to do. It's easy to get sidetracked by traditions and trends, and lose sight of what you really want.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love confetti canons, especially over first dance.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We meet up to have a chat about the wedding and I get a sense of who you are and what you want from your wedding. A month or two before the big day I ask for a formal shot list and timings to make sure that everything runs smoothly. It's about getting that balance between a plan and reacting to the day so that the spontaneity and fun is kept throughout.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Just take a little time out with the two of you and your photographer, no distractions, and have fun.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A replica of the bride's parents' first kiss photo in exactly the same place 30 years later.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Make sure you have a plan B for if it rains, and make sure you love it as much as plan A.
Describe how you got into photography.
My father was a keen photographer with a great natural eye for a picture. His natural talent and enthusiasm really rubbed off on me.
