What is your most memorable wedding?
My first wedding photography job was back in 2010. I’d recently finished my City & Guilds, Level 3 Photography course at Preston College. I was an assistant to another photographer and I recall being excited and nervous at the same time.
The wedding day was perfect and the weather was beautiful too. When I arrived home I remembered the adrenaline which I had from looking back at all the photographs I’d taken.That’s when I realised I had the urge and passion to photograph weddings.
