Your wedding day is far more than a carefully chosen dress, it is about the tears that were shed, the laughter that was heard and the small hugs that were felt. I'll ensure that this is not forgotten.

- I have a strong documentary approach; no photoshop manipulations, special filters or effects, and I like to be as unobtrusive as possible. This enables me to capture those real moments between yourselves, and your closest friends and family. I don’t have formulas or lists of photographs that need to be covered, I concentrate on your day and your day alone. I don’t work according to set hours - I am there to record the most important day of your lives and to ensure I capture every magical moment.

What about your business are you most proud of?
The moment I see a couples face when I first show them their photographs and how much the photographs mean to them
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Always keep to a tight schedule. There al lot of people working behind the scenes keeping events running smoothly. Any change in time has a chain effect all the way down.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once the couple have decided that I am going to photograph their wedding I like to see them at the various locations of their wedding at the same time that the events are going to take place on the day . This gives me an opportunity to discuss locations for photographs and assess the lighting conditions. This also gives me an impromptu opportunity to do a few casual photographs of the couple as a taster of whats to come .
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
When the bride and groom are oblivious to the camera and there is a real moment between the two of them
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
The weather is part of the day. when I photographed Mike and Mandy on the beach there was a howling wind . This enables me to capture some really fun shots with Mandy's dress and veil blowing in the wind
Describe how you got into photography.
My entire family is a creative one . All of us work in a creative industry . My form of creative expression became my camera .
