What is your most memorable wedding?
Being flown to Destin, Florida to photograph a wedding. It was a stunning location and a wonderful experience. I would say it was a once in a lifetime experience, but that bride's sister has just got engaged and has asked me to go back and photograph her wedding. I can't wait.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
My process always revolves around forming a relationship with the couple. The last thing I want is to be seen as a stranger on your wedding day. By getting to know you both we will have more fun and get better photographs on your special day. I like to meet couples before they book, so invite them into my studio so we can get to know each other a little. A couple of months before the wedding I invite you back again for your pre wedding shoot, and by this time we will have exchanged emails and spoken on the phone so it's a nice chance to catch up again. As well as getting some photographs of you both, we will sit down to discuss your day in more detail and start designing your album. On your wedding day I will capture your bridal preparation, ceremony, couples photographs, group photos, venue, speeches, first dance and anything else that is occuring on your day. I will then send you all your wedding photographs and ask you to choose the images for your album. Once you have decided I will create a layout for you to approve before sending it off to Italy for your bespoke album to be handmade.
