What is your most memorable wedding?
I first got into photography when I picked up a camera to document my band while we toured. That's right, I'm a wanna-be rockstar! For years I chased the dream of being a rockstar, touring the UK and living out of the back of a Transit van. It was amazing! Getting my first camera to capture those memories was a great idea but when you own a SLR camera the time comes when someone, usually a family member or friend, will ask you to shoot their wedding. That's exactly what got me started into wedding photography and I've been doing it ever since.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural, modern & fun!
What about your business are you most proud of?
Grab those wellies and embrace the day! The UK is a wet place a lot of the time so don't be put off by the rain as it can create some stunning photos! Bring your wellies and a nice umbrella (I usually bring a few) and just enjoy it! Yes we can take some photos inside but if you have stunning grounds then wrap up and get out side as you only do it once! We did this on our wedding day and it was the best decision we made.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I meet 99% of my couples before they decide to book. It's great to get to know each other a little better to make sure that we all get along and that everyone has a good understand of what's expected. I then meet again 4-6 weeks before the big day to talk over the big day and the final run down of the day. I always recommend adding me on facebook and liking the page so that we can keep in touch that way and they can keep up to date with current work and blogs.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Simply allowing a good amount of time for the couples shoots so you can have awesome photos to share for the rest of your lives!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I've been asked for some comedy photos to use as thank you cards. Something a little whacky that guests wont expect to arrive in the post. Always a good, fun idea!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Be sure to add YOU to YOUR wedding. Add the little things you love to the details of your day for a personal wedding all about you!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I shot a wedding in London that had a relaxed, music festival theme. Being a music lover it was right up my street! The weather was perfect and the day was full of smiles! It was truly awesome!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Bringing a pet you love to your wedding is always a nice touch. I'm a dog lover and seeing newly weds who love their pets is very touching :D
