Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

What about your business are you most proud of?
I've gained a lot of self-confidence working in various areas of photography.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Pick suppliers that you know will make you feel at ease. I've seen too many suppliers that stress couples out on their day. Personally, I will always go out of my way to ensure I'm as unobtrusive as possible whilst working and considerate to guests and couples alike!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love anything that's hand-made. I once worked at a wedding hosted at a social club, but it had been decorated incredibly!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Once a deposit has been paid I will send out a booking form. This will confirm what I am contracted to do on the day as well as give couples a chance to tell me what the schedule of the day will be and any bespoke needs they have. I am always happy to meet with couples prior to the day to discuss any needs, or even just to say hi!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A photograph somewhere private where they can have a moment to themselves. Often it's a few hours after the ceremony and first chance they get to be alone as a married couple.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A groom wearing a pair of boxers gifted by his wife-to-be!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A positive attitude! Fortunately I haven't worked many rainy weddings but the ones I have were never ruined as everyone maintained a positive vibe. It's hard to be miserable at a wedding afterall!
Describe how you got into photography.
I can remember playing with cameras as long as I've lived. I'm sure my parents would probably cringe at us using their film cameras as children. Alas, in later life I got my first DSLR as a teen, I'd mostly take photographs of landscapes, sunsets and our dog. Ever since, I am rarely without a camera and have never stopped seeking self-improvement!
