What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Make time for photography for the two of you on your day - this doesn't mean hours and hours, but think of it as a time on your wedding day where you can both get away and just be together - while the photographer takes pictures discreetly! Having this time scheduled in your timeline means that you don't feel rushed, or that the photography is taking over your day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
One of my couples organised a second cake for the bride's son so that he would feel a special part of the day. They also had a cake cutting for him to give him his own moment which was quite a nice touch.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I would first meet or discuss your requirements in person and over the telephone
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
My favourite image is always the first dance. This is often the one where the couple are not aware of the photographer; they are very relaxed; their favourite song is playing; and it's the culmination of their day; for that reason it's often a very authentic emotional moment.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
It's a shame not to get outdoor shots that incorporate the wider scene of your venue, so I would recommend some very quick outdoor portraits with lovely big umbrellas - I always carry two white golf umbrellas just in case for this purpose!
