Describe your typical process with a couple.
Its really important to have a good connection with all my couples so meeting them for an initial chat is important. Some couples like to have a pre-wedding shoot which is an additional cost of £75.00 personally I think its a really great thing to do especially if you don't like being in front of the camera, and it gives us another opportunity to chat about their day. I also do a venue visit with my couples a few weeks before the wedding to make sure I have every aspect of their day covered and I know exactly what they envisage. After the wedding day it takes me around four weeks to put the photos together, there are around 600 presented on a usb all printable and shareable in a box with a little gift from me. I also put the images on an on line gallery and Im more then happy to do a blog of wedding highlights. Throughout the whole process I am always contactable and I am always happy to offer advice and help if needed.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I think it depends on the couple
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A sense of humour, umbrella's and wellies, plus a couple of indoor locations perviously sourced by me.
Describe how you got into photography.
Always had the need to document everything photographically from a young age and before social media came about. I did a foundation art course and then went onto a degree in photography and basically spent four years in the dark room developing my films. I graduated with first class honours, then digital photography happened I learnt how to use computer software to edit images rather then the dark room and that was it. I consider myself very lucky to have had such a wonderful eduction doing something I love and now make a living out of.
