Full Description
  • I know that photography is more than just a way of recording the ways you made your day amazing; it is one of the ways you make it amazing. For most of us, our wedding is probably the biggest & certainly one of the best parties we will ever throw. It’s a hugely important day for serious reasons as well, of course, but even then the wedding is about celebrating those reasons. You will have put loads of effort resources into creating this day of celebration & I am honoured by each & every one of you that entrusts me with the job of documenting it for you. When wedding day comes, I want you to be able to just focus on each other, not on worrying about the photos. Thus I will work with you beforehand & do my best to make sure you feel comfortable in front of my camera. I spend time getting to know your personality & your preferences, so that they will be reflected in pictures that tell the story of you – as you envisioned it. If what you want from your wedding are fierce, fresh, fun images - an eclectic mix of vibrant fashion-editorial, relaxed contemporary lifestyle portraiture, humour, romance & reportage – that memorialise this fabulous party of which you & your partner are the centre, & you’re not afraid to get a little silly & to laugh with each other at my dumb jokes & whatever else the day throws your way, then we will be a good match. On wedding day, even though I’ll be the one vendor that’s there with you from start to finish, the one who finds an extra safety pin when you need it, who sees the anticipation on both of your faces before the ceremony, along with the tears in the morning & laughter in the evening, you won’t always see me. I’ll be front & centre when you need me to be – organising and herding cats for the group portraits – & the photo ninja in the shadows when you don’t. Sometimes clients look at an image & say, “I didn’t even know you were there." Which is as it should be. I was, the moment was captured, & that’s what matters.

FAQ
(9)
What is your most memorable wedding?
They are all memorable.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
fun, fresh, fierce, modern
What about your business are you most proud of?
The photos :)
What is your #1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan the entry procession so that the bridesmaids enter before the bride (not the other way around). Hire someone to be your event coordinator on wedding day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Too many to list them all. Amazing entertainment from bride's friends who all worked in musical theatre. Golden dinosaur placecards. Gorgeously rustic DIY cakes. A long walk with all guests led by musicians across the South Downs. A DIY pitch-in wedding breakfast. Vintage wedding dresses. Bridesmaid dresses designed and hand-sewn by the bride.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
All of my packages include a personal pre-event consultation to get to know each other and review the contract, a venue visit and a super fun and relaxed pre-wedding photo session. I ask all clients to fill out a client questionnaire detailing their running order on the day, group photo requests and all other relevant info for the event, and I'm in touch with my clients again approx 1-3 weeks before the wedding to finalise details.
What is the #1 photo that you think every couple should take?
There is no cookie-cutter answer to this. Every couple should have photos that reflect their unique personalities and styles. I work with my clients to come up with ideas for images that will be right for them.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
One of my brides was a gymnast/cheerleader and she wanted a photo of a basket toss - being tossed really high in the air by all of the groomsmen.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Colourful wellies and pretty brollies and a plan B :). Also to remember that rain can make for a really dreamy, ethereal effect in photos so it doesn't have to be a bad thing - when possible we'll use it to our advantage.
