Describe your typical process with a couple.
We meet, we chat, we might do a little couple shoot and visit your venue. We keep in touch, we talk a few days before THE day and then it's party time. On the day itself, you concentrate on enjoying yourselves while I concentrate on capturing the feel of your celebration. I believe that a wedding is a wedding, not a photo shoot, so I will not monopolize your day. When you've had enough, you can say so. I am friendly, flexible and easy-going while being capable and experienced. Following the wedding, I'll send you a few previews to keep you going while I select and polish the best 500-700 of your images. When they're finished they will be uploaded to your private web gallery where you and your guests (once you share your password) can view and order prints, should you wish. Your high-quality USB drive will arrive through the post shortly after, containing your images at print and web resolutions. Should you want an album, you have time to select the images you want to include. When you give me the list, I work with a professional graphic designer to produce a stunning, very lovely book for you to enjoy forevermore ;-)
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
That's different for every couple
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Some nice white brollies and an acceptance that it's all part of your day.
Describe how you got into photography.
The business was a natural progression from my love of the craft. I have practised, studied and you might even say obsessed about photography for a lot longer than it has been my trade. I see life framed in rectangles. I am bad at social media, but I am good at photography. I believe that's my priorities in order.
