What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding is different and as so every set of images I produce are unique to the couple, for me to say which wedding is my favourite would be difficult, but I do love summer weddings when you have time to get some great natural light shots.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
The whole wedding party on a vintage tractor!
What about your business are you most proud of?
Discuss with your photographer the group shots (if you want them), as these can really eat into your day if you want too many. I normally take a large shot of everyone at the wedding straight after the service, so that the guests who won't be in other shots can go and have a drink and relax, and are not hanging about.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I meet the couple for an initial consultation, go through my style and what they want or expect from a wedding photographer. If they like my work and book me, then I set up a Pinterest board, for me to pin shots I take at other weddings that I think similar shots may work at their wedding, based on the venue etc. I would then meet up with the couple again one month before the wedding to go through timings and any specific shots they may want.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Relaxed, Creative, Friendly, Natural, Humorous
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I love detail shots, bouquets, shoes, rings etc. A lot of thought goes into planning a wedding so if I can capture most elements I feel that I have preserved the memories of the special day.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The referrals and unsolicited reviews I get from happy couples.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
I started photography when I was in my early teens, I used to have to have a darkroom at the bottom of my parents garden where I would develop and process my own prints, before the age of digital.
