What is your most memorable wedding?
I had a ball capturing a wedding in Oxford last year on a glorious sunny day. The wedding started at Jesus College with the ceremony and drinks reception. I followed the newlyweds all over Oxford on foot for portraits and to the wedding breakfast at the Ashmolean Museum. The roads were lined with tourists in awe of the wedding party. To top it all the bride managed all of this in her Jimmy Choos!!!

My passion for delivering quality from start to finish. I do go that extra mile for all my clients. After all, this is one of the most cherished days you will have together- so it means a lot to me to get it just right.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Book your photographer one year in advance to avoid disappointment and just enjoy every minute of the journey !!!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The bride and groom placed a different book at each place setting, personal to each guest. I thought that was rather special.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I normally like to meet you face to face for a casual chat discussing all your ideas and plans. I will then send you an online booking form and contract. A £250 booking deposit will secure your date. Nearer the time we meet to discuss the schedule of your day and all the images you would like of your family and friends. Your balance would be due one month before your wedding. After your wedding I release a sneak- peek slideshow of some of your highlights set to music. I would them release 500 individually edited images on a private online gallery for you to view, download, share and order prints 4-6 weeks later. Once you have chosen all your favourites I can design your album layout and take orders for wall art and fine art prints. Finally, you will receive a beautiful photo block, concealing your flash drive within the frame.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Definitely confetti photos. These shots are priceless!! Packed with emotion and relief.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Being asked to take a photo of the groom's chest bearing interesting artwork while he was buttoning his shirt up...
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace it!! Your photos will have a more atmospheric feel. Definitely, invest in see-through umbrellas if you want some photos to be taken outside. Have a Plan B in place for group shots as all your family members might not be as adventurous.
Describe how you got into photography.
I love taking photos of people, so my passion turned into a job!!!
