LUSTRE is for couples looking for a photographer/videographer who captures real moments. I like to give very little direction on the day, with a priority in finding natural, real and candid moments between the couple and also of guests. No two weddings are the same. I don't follow any kind of formula and I don't look for the same shots at every wedding. I think on my feet and aim to find unique moments in each event. You are the choreographer of your day and I am there to capture it all in a non obtrusive way. You might spend a lot of time making or carefully selecting and decorating your event, finding the perfect dress/suit, booking the best band/DJ or family might come from all over the world to witness and celebrate this wonderful ceremony. The day can go by so quickly and capturing the day on film or in photos can be such a wonderful investment. My personal editing style tends to be soft, bright and warm with a vintage feel. I am friendly, creative and passionate about giving couples something unique to cherish forever. This isn't just a business. I'm an artist and I'm lucky enough to really enjoy the work that I do! I love being a part of such an important day and helping couples capture it all. If you think this is what you are looking for, I would love to hear from you!

What is your most memorable wedding?
Each wedding is memorable in its own way! I have loved everything from surprise fireworks, handmade decorations and meaningful speeches. I have loved them all.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Creative, Fun, Bright, Soft, Unique
What about your business are you most proud of?
I am very down to earth and easy going. I am proud of being able to adapt to each couples needs and bring my own style into the mix as well.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan your photos around the light! Think about when your photos are taking place and try to get some natural light or try to catch the sunset!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Homemade paper flowers (made from old maps) instead of any flowers on the day. They were so colourful and really unique.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once booked in, I like to set a date to meet up face to face or have a chat over Skype. This is to make sure I know what is happening throughout the day, your expectations but also really just a chance to meet you and find out what you are looking for so that I can make sure you are happy at the end of the day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The confetti shot!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The bride's shoes said 'I DO' on the bottom, so we took photos of her sitting on a staircase with the bottom of her feet up.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
It always rains in the UK! You can't avoid it. If your wedding is outdoors I would suggest some type of canopy/gazebo backup and some strong brollies!
Describe how you got into photography.
I've always been interested in art. I'm a painter, photographer & film maker. It's never been a choice, I've always felt a need for it.
