What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Pick your suppliers according to who you feel you connect with the most and not their prices. You will have to communicate with them quite a bit and it will be so much easier if you really get on!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Face masks as party favours!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We would first exchange a couple of emails to assess what the couple's expectations are and see if I would be a good fit. I then always ensure we have a face to face meeting before signing the contract to discuss your special day in more details and make sure we get on. Once the contract is signed and the deposit paid we plan the engagement session. The engagement session is a great way to get to know each other and to try out a few poses so you know what to do on the day. It is especially useful for couples who are a little camera shy as it will help them relax on their big day knowing they have done it before. A few weeks before the wedding we exchange a few more emails regarding the group photos list, the timeframe and any specific photos the couple would like me to try and take.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A beautiful natural photo of the two of them. No posing, no forced smiles, just them being themselves. The best part is they don't need to do anything, I will catch them in the moment!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Do. Not. Panic. The rain probably won't last all day and we will have time to go out and take some photos at some point. And if it doesn't stop raining we will get creative!
Describe how you got into photography.
I bought a camera, played around with the settings and realised how much fun I had taking photos... A couple of weeks after buying my camera I was hooked and I haven't stopped pressing the shutter release since!
