What is your most memorable wedding?
This has to be a Wiccan ceremony held in the shadow of Pendle Hill in Lancashire witch country. Talk about bells and whistles! We had all of them and more. The blog can be seen on my website.. look for www.f2photography.co.uk/andrew-lee
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Discreet, reportage, fun, laid back, relaxed
What about your business are you most proud of?
I am very proud that many couples have commented how hard working I was during their whole planning experience from first meet to the final presenting of the record of their special day and how easy going and relaxed I was able to make them feel.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Use a professional! Mother-in-law is NOT that person :)
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love many different aspects but do appreciate when couples have used a little DIY - rustic table settings, an old farmers milking bucket full of confetti for the guests, home made wooden frames nailed to a barn door showing the various seating plans
Describe your typical process with a couple.
An extremely informal first meeting is always a great start... no obligation and certainly no followup pressure! If we can hit it off that's great, we can then chat more as the day draws closer and fine tune the details ready for your big day. Photos are edited the week following your wedding and are normally ready within 10 days.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
If time and circumstance allow then I always enjoy a night time shoot of the Bride and Groom.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
a dog was the 'best man'! Fabulously attired in a little tux and dickie bow
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Don't let it spoil the day. Live with it, embrace it and go with the flow. We can get superb photos with a rainy backdrop, a nice big brolly and some flash.
Describe how you got into photography.
I grew up in a home with a darkroom and my passion for photography was nurtured at a very early age in the 1960's
