Just after all the group photos, I ask the couple to spend some time just the two of them. Then I step back and capture that moment when they realise they are finally married and all the stress and worry is gone. This is the most natural and happiest moment of the day.

Describe how you got into photography.
I have always loved my photography and have always believed that you should capture all your memories via photo or video as a back up as unfortunately our mental memories may fade over time, but there are two main reasons why I started my own business. Firstly while studying photography as part of a interior design course, I attended a friends wedding and took advantage of the occasion to complete a course module. My friends later told me my photos were better than the professional they had hired. Secondly when it came to my own wedding, I couldn't find a photographer that offered me every image taken, within my budget and without any hidden extras. Adding these two reasons and my natural love of photography I decided to start a business offering affordability, quality, flexibility and no limits to my packages while making my website as transparent as possible so couple knew what and who they were getting to share their memories with
