What is your most memorable wedding?
I have photographed so many brilliant weddings, I couldn't pick out just one.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Creative, fun, emotive, professional, relaxed
What about your business are you most proud of?
Of course my photos but also my customer relations
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Get everything booked asap, especially your photographer :) There is nothing worse than stressing out close to your day getting services booked in.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Table Numbers with a photo of the bride and groom at that same age, the Table One sign had a photo of them at one year old, table two at two years old etc, very cool.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I meet my couples and prospective clients for a coffee and a chat prior to the wedding. This sometimes includes the pre wedding shoot and sometimes we do this on a seperate occaision. I keep in touch at regular intervals between booking and the wedding date and send a questionaire a month prior asking all the final timings and details like parents, bestman, bridesamaids names and any other important details to do with the day. I also send a shot list so I have the required group photos prior to the day, this especially helps to make that part of the day go as smooth and as quickly as possible. After the wedding the photos will be uploaded into an online gallery , within 30 days, and your USB will be delivered to you. If you have and album in your option this is when you will choose your photos using your online gallery. Your album will be designed and you will have an online magazine style proof to approve or request album changes.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I know its a bit boring but I really think every wedding couple should have a traditional full length portrait. I do this for all my clients as well as lots of other cool stuff but the full length one is the one Mum and Granny will want for their mantelpiece.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
All the groomsmen with their trousers down pretending to help each other pee!!!!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Smile, its your wedding day! Oh, and take a brolly
Describe how you got into photography.
I was a private Butler for many years and always had an interest and bought a good SLR, I travelled all over the world with my work and wanted to take great photos. In 2005 I attended a wedding with my girlfriend, now wife, who was a bridesmaid at the wedding. The other bridesmaid was a photographer and gave me her camera for the day. After, I sent a DVD of my photos to the couple and they preferred mine to the guy they had paid! It took a couple of years working full time and being a weekend photo warrior but I went full time on the photo front about three years ago.
