I began my journey as a photographer back in the 1990's, before digital cameras became popular, and so learnt my craft using film. I practised with film all the way through my degree. Two weeks after graduating I landed my first full time job as a studio photographer, using DIGITAL! I then began the never ending journey of learning to work digitally, which 14 years on, I now LOVE! I now work as a full time wedding photographer, working with an array of different clients. Every wedding is different, and I love telling each unique story through the eye of my lens. I'm not sure how many weddings I've covered to date exactly, but I'm pretty sure it's over 100!

What is your most memorable wedding?
omgosh, there have been so many. I couldn't pick just one!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Documentary, editing, story telling, creative, natural light
What about your business are you most proud of?
The feedback I receive from customers. It's so important to provide good customer service, and leave clients happy with images they will love, forever. Although I'm actually quite proud of how I'm able to fit so much into one day. Weddings are like marathons!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I can already think of about 10 things but ...Heel stoppers for standing in grass are great!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The whole day is just so personal, from the flowers to the gifts received and given, to the rings...each day is filled with personal and beautiful detail. This is something that I am focusing on capturing on every wedding day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I'd usually receive an enquiry by email, and respond this way. If the client is happy to discuss things further on the phone I will give them a call, or even a video call if they're feeling brave! Sometimes clients prefer to keep to email. If they would like to book I'd send over a booking form with a request for further information and with details for paying a deposit. I'd usually touch base with the couple before the big day to gather the final bits of information needed to photograph their wedding, although clients should feel free to get in touch at any point leading up to the wedding with any questions or information they'd like to share. If I've not covered a venue previously I will take a trip to look around before photographing the day. If I am travelling a long way to cover the wedding, I might set off the day before to view the venue.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I think that what works for one couple may not always work for another. I do love a bit of confetti though! The bride, groom and guests loose their inhibitions, and the face expressions whilst the confetti is being thrown are so happy and natural
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Honestly, you can never just pick one photo!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Rain on a wedding day can make for great photo's. A pair of wellies and some umbrella's plus a little shelter are all helpful. I've photographed MANY weddings in the rain, and I don't believe it is something to worry about.
Describe how you got into photography.
20 years ago I just decided I wanted to be a photographer. I bought my first SLR for around £100, and never looked back. It turns out both my grand father and great grand father practised the art form, so maybe it's in the genes! ;o
