Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
fun, fresh, adventurous, creative, romantic
What about your business are you most proud of?
The 1:1 service I give to my clients. Each couple is unique and every wedding I photograph is special, so I work hard to achieve a look that shows off your wedding as you envision it.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Take time to enjoy the planning. Your wedding day will fly by... so soak it up. Love every moment and most importantly don't skimp on your photography. It is the only thing you have left to show for your day when the dress is ruined, the venue is gone and the cake eaten. Love your day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A view that has been passed down through the generations used. It has change shape and style over the years but it was to the point the bride had a piece of the lace made into a tie for her bouquet. I love sentiment (I told you I was a romantic at heart!)

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
One picture with your parents. Things change. People change, but one picture that is always one that people say "I wish I had that" is one with your parents.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
a pair of Welly boots and an umbrella. Don't let the rain get you down! It's part of your wedding story. It may not feel "magical" on the day, but believe me, when you sit down to look through your pictures with your children some day, how wonderful it'll be to say "and it rained cats and dogs all day, but that just made it more magical.... and I got a wonderful pair of welly's out of it!" Just get wet!!! I have had couples dance in the middle of a hurricane, and it was an awesome picture and they laughed... oh how they laughed because it was magical!
I have had couples standing with their horses in muddy fields with colourful umbrellas... the brides shoes now black but it didn't matter... because it was part of their day... Embrace it and don't let it get you down.
Describe how you got into photography.
I have always loved photography and my dad used to be a photographer. I used to look at the pictures on our walls where I grew up and say "I'm going to do that one day". Now I have my own pictures on my walls and say "Now I do this!"
