What is your most memorable wedding?
One of my most memorable weddings has to be at Binham Priory, which is one of the most beautiful ceremony locations I have ever been to. The couple were actors, so absolutely nailed the portraits, and they had so much style oozing from them. The bride's veil was as long as my Sunday lie-ins, and the bouquet, by Swaffham Florist, was decadent, floral and seasonal. Absolute dream.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Candid, natural, fine art, alternative, documentary.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm quite an indecisive person, and one thing I have noticed a lot of other photographers doing is fiddling about with the way they edit their images, hopping between one style to another. One thing I am so proud of is that I have a consistent editing style, and each photo is edited by me and only me. I'm also equally as proud of the way I approach my clients; there's nothing pushy or salesman-y about it. I treat you like a human being and I'm often complimented on that.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
C'est la vie. When things go wrong, they go wrong, and "that's life." Don't stress yourself over a tiny inconvenience that will go unnoticed by so many other guests.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I think it's always beautiful when my couples honour a late relative during their ceremony or reception, either by reserving a seat or lighting a candle for them.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
The typical booking process would be to meet, natter away over some cake, sign the contract & pay the deposit, and then text each other & tag each other in funny wedding related memes on Facebook until the next time we see each other! I'm kidding... slightly. We'll organise your engagement shoot at your earliest convenience, and the rest is history.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A confetti photo! They are totally epic! It's pure emotion (often elation!)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas. We can take cool & quirky photos if you plan for a rainy day with umbrellas.
Describe how you got into photography.
I first picked up a camera when I was around 10 years old, and I was attending my first ever music festival with my friends & my Dad. I put great importance on documenting our experience at this festival, and it was then that I started to realise I valued what a photograph can give you. The memories, the nostalgia, the ability to share a moment with someone that may not have been there. I continued capturing my day to day life, however it wasn't until I was a teenager, studying my GCSEs, that I began to find my direction creatively. I knew I loved photographing people, in various environments, from fashion to street photography. I just got a great sense of fulfilment out of the entire process of snapping to processing an image. The satisfaction I got from looking at my finished image was like nothing else.
