The best thing I get from the job is taking some great photos and then when you reveal them to the bride and they cry with happiness. I am always proud of this moment.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
I would have 2 meetings with the couple. One meeting about a month after booking to get the couples ideas and then one around 3 weeks before the wedding to finalise the couple plans and make sure it run smoothly on the day. On the day I would be communicating with a nominated person (usually maid of honor or parents) so if there is any delays in the timings then I can prepare for them.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I like to make the couple kis's. The reason it takes a few shots to get right because both bride and groom gets silly. It's them silly shots that makes it worth it.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
I would usually bring white brolly's with me to shelter the guest and it makes a good shot. I would avoid the grass and make sure we do the formal very quickly so we can get out of the rain.
