PRE-WEDDING CONSULTATION & ENGAGEMENT SHOOT We can meet well in advance of your date to discuss exactly what you expect from me. We can talk through all of your plans and the special people who will be attending to make sure no detail is left out. We can also work together for an engagement shoot and this important for a number of reasons. It allows you to understand how I work and also provides you with professional photographs that can be used for a signing book, signing frame or invitations. BRIDAL PREPARATIONS I will come to wherever you are getting ready with your bridal party and aim to take candid, reportage-style photographs of this important preparation time. These can often be some of the most intimate photographs of the day as you enjoy time with the special people in your life prior to the ceremony. CEREMONY I will be at the wedding venue in time to record the guests arrival and the groomsmen and be ready to photograph you as you walk down the aisle. I will then be with you throughout the ceremony right up to the first dance and a little beyond if you so wish. I don't over-emphasise the need to have formal group shots after the ceremony and certainly don't want to keep you both away from your guests for hours at a time. You will want to share the time with your friends and family and I aim to capture the emotions and reactions of everyone present. I will, of course, take the time to take formal group shots if that is your wish. AFTER THE DAY I will post-process all of the photographs from the day, in my signature style, and aim to have them available for viewing in a secure on-line gallery within 6 weeks of the wedding day. PRODUCTS All wedding packages come with a professionally produced keepsake USB stick and presentation tin. I also offer bespoke wedding albums that you will want to look at and share for years to come. I also offer: - - Parent Albums - Wall Display products (frames, canvases etc.) - Many other great products

What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding is memorable for me. I have been married for 9 years and I remember every moment of my fabulous day. I still get a little teary-eyed when vows are exchanged and the couple have their first dance. I know how much effort has been put into the plans for each wedding and I ensure that the day is recorded forever in every way.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Professional, Candid, Reportage, Modern, Awesome!
What about your business are you most proud of?
The wonderful comments I receive after a wedding from the bride, groom and family. I always have a great time at weddings (I love them!) and knowing that I've been able to document the day for the couple to enjoy for a lifetime is a great feeling.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't settle for second best, make enquiries with as many companies as possible, ask as many questions as you can, and hire me as your wedding photographer.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Every wedding is personal to those involved but my favourite part is when the groom sees the bride for the first time. It always brings a lump to my throat.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
There's no process, a process seems quite cold and takes an edge away from the documentary style of photography that I am to provide. I keep it as natural as possible so that you can enjoy your day and I can capture all of the special moments.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Probably the mother-in-law, it saves a multitude of arguments in the long run!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I haven't yet had any unusual requests but rest assured that virtually everything can be accommodated, unless you have a pet spider. I might struggle with that one, sorry!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Describe how you got into photography.
I started playing around with cameras on my honeymoon in 2008 and found that the interaction between a camera and a subject can be completely captivating. What better place to create many wonderful moments of human interaction than a wedding, the happiest day of peoples lives and an opportunity to take some truly memorable photographs.
