FAQ

What is your most memorable wedding?
There have been so many amazing weddings.. that is a really difficult question! One of my favorites has to be Chloe and Haydn's wedding in 2015, as I knew both of these lovely people as a teenager. They had been together since the age of 16, so it was really special to see them tie the knot and also to see many old friends I hadn't seen in years! Their wedding had a punk-rock edge to it, and I captured some great images which played on this element, such as one of my favorite photographs of the girls lined up looking beautiful in front of an urban, edgy looking brick wall. The contrasting effect worked really well!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, stylish, candid, fun, colourful.
What about your business are you most proud of?
Being independently rated as one of the top photographers in my home city of Leicester!
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Relax and enjoy it! Take your time, and don't worry about things going wrong. Nothing ever runs perfectly in life so their is no point ruining your enjoyment of the day over anything that doesn't go as exactly as you expected it would, much better to go with the flow, laugh and feel the love - that's what it is really all about.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I really liked a table setting at a recent wedding, where each table was named after a place which was important in the couple's journey up to that point; their first home, their first holiday, their home country, etc. It really added to the people in the room sharing their story and I liked that a lot.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Photos of the couple having a 10/15 minute walk around the grounds of their wedding venue. Not only do these photographs often turn out to be the most creative, romantic and memorable, but often the couple need a bit of abreak from talking to lots of guests just to be alone with each other for a while. It is supposed to be a romantic day, after all!! I shoot with a long lens at this point to ensure the couple have plenty of space to feel more relaxed.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas can look great in your photographs, and if you're brave, wellies too! Have a look through my portfolio to see some examples of how to make the rain work for you :)
Describe how you got into photography.
I studied photography for 2 years at college and whilst there I also landed a job in a portrait studio. During this time I learnt an enormous amount about photography and honed my assisting, editing and shooting skills. After relocating I started shooting 'solo' part time, and since then things have just grown and grown!
