What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
In terms of photography - allow enough time. Nothing worse than rushing through your couple photography. I usually take around 20-25 minutes, but that time isn't about me. Its about the two of you having a little alone time on the single most important day of your relationship so far. A quiet moment to say 'we did it!". This is when i'll capture some great portraits of the two of you. The best pictures come when you're in the moment with each other.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Aw so many! I once saw a table plan with table numbers along the lines of: 1, 4, 418, 15, 52 etc. And they were figures about the couple. For example 418 was the amount of beers drunk on the stag do. 4 was the number of countries they had visited together. So cute.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
From the moment a couple gets in touch, I want to meet with them. Its the only way I can see if we're a good fit with the same ideas about the kind of wedding photography they want. After this, and they decide to book we'll might do an engagement shoot. This will help them relax with me on the wedding day, and it gives me a chance to get to know them a little bit before the big day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
