Describe your typical process with a couple.
Its very important that you meet your photographer and have good communication - after all you are trusting them with the most important day of your life. So with every enquiry we will have a chat on the phone to start with, arrange a meeting where we can discuss your wedding plans and requirements in more detail and you will experience a pre-wedding shoot about 2 months before the big day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
There is not one photo that a couple should take - there are so many important 'moments' during your big day that need capturing. The most special though are after you are married and you both have some quiet time together, enjoying each others company, away from the guests and have your private photos taken.

Original, amusing and quite comical - a groom using the brides dress to clean a Mustang he loved!

Wellies, brollies and a fab sense of fun!
Describe how you got into photography.
My story is quite emotional so bare with me.
I had an interest in photography when I was five, I was always taking pictures. I don’t know what sparked it back then, I just loved capturing memories and I used to put everything in albums and I have still got some of those albums with those really old photos in, particularly of donkeys and horses at the New Forest.
Now, when I take photos there’s more meaning behind it with what happened with my brother. Peter, was a very special person in my life, he was born with multiple disabilities and although was eight years older than me he was my little brother in so many ways. He lived until he was 39 years old which we now understand was a blessing but his loss made me really think about my little family, how lucky I am that I had all those photos and memories forever. I did not see the value in those photos when I was younger, now they mean everything to me. I appreciate the memories, I appreciate the value of them.
