What is your most memorable wedding?
I cannot choose one wedding, all my weddings are memorable in their own special way. I love my clients and I now class them as friends.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
1. Creative 2. Emotional 3. Fine Art 4. Story Telling 5. Romantic
What about your business are you most proud of?
Just recently being rewarded for all my hard work and being voted in the Wedaward Top-10 International Wedding Photographer of the Year 2018.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book your wedding suppliers and venue as soon as possible, my business books up to 2 years in advance.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
To many to choose!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I work with them throughout their wedding journey from initial consultations, to pre-production meetings, photographing their wedding, post production to album design.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I love the couple shots, so a must would be a selection of couple portraits that have the emotional connection and tells the story of the new husband and wife.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
For me I would say I took a photo of the bride and groom shoes and socks, the bride was wearing custom made converse and the groom was wearing iron man socks.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Creativity!!! Photographing in the rain is very atmospheric plus this photographer always brings a bridal umbrella for you to keep dry.
