Describe your typical process with a couple.
My first contact is by email when I refer them to view online galleries of my past weddings -on confirming the booking I take a small deposit and send them a wedding details form which gives me all their information regarding family and friends dynamics and the main members of the wedding party (I use this both on the day and also to plan any group shots ) Approx 3 months before the wedding I encourage them to meet me for a coffee and a relaxed pre wedding photo shoot in a local park or outdoor place special to them. This allows us to finalise details of the day and also most importantly to get to know each other so the couple will be relaxed about their photography on the day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A shot of the couple hand in hand engaged in happy conversation walking towards the camera
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I was asked to photograph the bride and groom with their pet which was a Bearded Dragon (lizard)!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
I have a couple of brightly coloured umbrellas which add a lovely splash of colour or I encourage them to find their iwn if they don't like mine and the weather is unsettled. I like to take at least two or three shots outside of the couple even if it is raining - the group shots or natural shots I will arrange to do inside - I will visit the venue beforehand or at least give them a call to discuss what facilities they have for indoor photographs.
Describe how you got into photography.
I have always been passionate about photography and love the way it captures memories. I have worked in lots of areas of photography and I am now combining my love of photography with my love of capturing the moment at weddings and other family events.
