What is your most memorable wedding?
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.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
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 about your business are you most proud of?
A replica of the bride's parents' first kiss photo in exactly the same place 30 years later.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Make sure you have a plan B for if it rains, and make sure you love it as much as plan A.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
All weddings are special, there's little touches, speeches, and events from far too many to pick just one.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Just take a little time out with the two of you and your photographer, no distractions, and have fun.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I love confetti canons, especially over first dance.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Relaxed, Friendly, Fun, Emotional, Sneaky!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
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.
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.
