What is your most memorable wedding?
I think the family photo is one I get all couples to do. Esspecially if family have travelled, there are children and grandparents.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
I meet couples in a location they would like - normally a coffee and cake goes down very well! I'm very friendly and show my work to them whilst they can ask questions or just simply chat about the style. I talk them through my contract and we discuss the arrangement for the special day. Then they are free to discuss what they really want and gather ideas. It's all very relaxed nothing too cut throat!
What about your business are you most proud of?
Natural, Creative, Fresh, Different, Beautiful
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I studied photography in college, but to be honest I didn't realise I wanted to be a photographer until I moved out to Cyprus for a year and started business out there. I realised that I wanted to be the person behind the camera, and I actually had an eye for spotting beautiful things. When i came back to the UK I picked up again and started Flashsnap, I have never regretted my decision and I am training in all aspects of photography to be my best!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love anything handmade. I love seeing brides putting their creations together and capturing them in a photo, so years down the line you wouldn't forget.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
My most memorable wedding was last year in July, where I met a couple who on the outside was shown to have a very traditional wedding, but I couldn't be more wrong. The ceremony was in a beautiful church and then we were to walk down the seafront to their chosen venue, the volleyball courts! A beautiful beautiful day and a gorgeous couple. Will never forget!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Communication is key! With all your suppliers, the venue and the person who is marrying you! Always make sure photographers are welcome at your ceremony as well.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Umbrellas and Wellies! A bit of colour.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
How my work grows which each session.
