What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get your wedding venue booked early, so you get the one you like the mostl, within your budget. Do the same for your photographer. Do not undervalue the service, photographs and lifelong memories, photographers capture and supply.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A wishing tree with thoughtful, handwritten sentiments signed with a name and stamped with a fingerprint.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Initially meet up and if you are happy, then go ahead and book my services.
At a later date we'll have another meet, usually at the wedding venue to discuss the timetable of events and areas where the photographs will work best (considering all time constraints).
I forward a copy of a shot list to fill in and complete, detailing the times previously discussed and family group shot requests (if any).
I will call a couple of days prior to the wedding.
On the day I arrive around 15/20 mins before I am booked for. On departure I will say goodbye and check that I am not required for anything further.
The flashdrive with the completed images will be posted out between 2-6 weeks, depending on the height of the wedding season.
If albums are requested, I begin the process once the couple have informed me of the required images. As the customer you get to choose what images go in your album, so once you have decided, I begin the process. The album design can take from 4-12 weeks depending on the number of pages and images. Album production can take up to 8 weeks including delivery.
This whole production is impacted upon depending on the time in the season.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Sharing a simple cuddle
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
To take a photo of a couple driving off in a roofless, vintage car, whilst they were holding a horn in the air, & honking them very loudly.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Plenty of umbrellas, a relaxed attitude, and a willingness to get just a little bit wet!!
Describe how you got into photography.
Whilst studying for my A Levels in Art, back in 1992. I fell in love with the magical process of photographic film and film processing and printing.
