Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Hmm it's real hard to pick out just one! A 2018 wedding that'll stay with me was the wedding of Rosy & Chris. The level of planning that went into their wedding day was insane! Everywhere you looked you could see a carefully considered touch and detail that had Rosy & Chris’ stamp all over it! I’ve never seen Oxwich Bay in Swansea look so elegant! Of course Oxwich Bay Hotel with it’s beech and cliff top outlook will always look beautiful, but the effort that went into decorating their marquee was simply stunning. That said, for all of the planning, one thing you can’t prepare for is rain - or should I say the most frustrating misty drizzle that plagued us for most of the day! As soon as we had a break in the weather though, and just before the speeches were about to commence, we ran out to the Oxwich beech to make the most of the break in the rain clouds and take some beautiful couple shots. This was definitely one of the most fun weddings myself and the team have been to - Rosy & Chris stuck two fingers up to the weather Gods and made the most of every second of what was a truly special day. Their beautiful kids were a shining example of the joy and kindness this couple exude, and I couldn’t be more grateful for them letting us document their most incredible of wedding days.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I guess I've always looked for creative outlets. Photography naturally felt like a means of scratching this creative itch whilst also providing couple with so much joy and happiness.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I recently shot the wedding of two primary school teachers. Unbeknown to them, one of their classes came to the church ceremony to act as a vocal choir as the bride walked down the aisle! It was so sweet!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Pack your wellies and get ready to splash in some puddles! A rainy day can actually lend itself to some great photo opportunities!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I'm most proud of the product I'm able to provide to my couples. Being able to deliver a gallery of beautiful photographs which will be cherished forever and handed down to future generations is something that truly inspires what I do.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
With a seemingly endless list of tasks to complete in the run up to your wedding day, I'd definitely suggest utilising your friends and family by assigning tasks and reliving some of the stresses from your own shoulders!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I take a relaxed and natural approach to photographing weddings. There will be times when I'm more hands on such as when coordinating guests for group shots, or posing my bride's and groom's so they look at their best during their couple shots, but other times I'll take a step back and blend into the background in order to take more candid shots of your friends and family.
