What is your most memorable wedding?
John and Veronica. It was my third wedding and I was so nervous. I really wanted to do a great job. I have connected perfectly with the couple and the guest and I captured the emotions of the day which was my goal. Capture the real day. People laughing, crying, cuddling, dancing...and I have managed to do it. They were pleased and so was I.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
After I received your query, I answer all your questions confirming my packages. I then propose to meet up or set up a telephone call to understand your requirements and introduce ourselves as I'm gonna be with you all day (on you wedding day!!!) So it's important that we meet and most of all you trust me as your photographer. If you are happy, then I'll send you the contract with the T&C and the invoice for the deposit to secure your date (typically £200). The balance is due a week before your wedding. 3 to 4 weeks after the wedding the images will be presented to you in a private gallery that you could share with family and friends. The pictures can be downloaded and will be ready to be printed. Also you will receive a slideshow video with the best moments

Describe how you got into photography.
I have first started as a Street Photographer, which can turn everyday moments into pieces of art. After becoming a mum, I've decided to turn a passion into a business. I initially tested different styles to understand what I liked and what I was good at. I realised that what I really enjoyed was the documentary photography, the non staged moment, catching people expressions, looking for that soul in their eyes. I like photographing real moments and emotions that are so familiar and represent the essence of a person, a couple or a group.
