What is your most memorable wedding?
One that shows the love between a couple and the connection they have
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
One of my brides had been keeping a diary from her engagement all the way up to her wedding day as a gift for her husband - the very last entry was just before she made her final preparations to go down to the ceremony so it a very personal and privileged moment to be able to capture on camera.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I generally strive to have meeting with you before booking so we can go over what you want from me as a photographer, and to ensure that we all get on. Occasionally this isn't possible, but at the very least there will be a nice long chat on the phone! At somepoint before your big day there will also be a pre-wedding consultation and engagement shoot (if you want one).
On your wedding day I'll be there nice and early and I'll also normally stay quite late!
After that there is all the post-production on your images, followed by album production and finally happy clients!!!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
One where everyone enjoys themselves!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I was blown away by the images taken by the wedding photographer photographer on my own wedding day. I'd always previously taken landscape shots and not really thought much about the emotional value of images. One I saw what could be conveyed through an image I was hooked and started learning as much about people photography as possible - from there it was a natural progression to move onto wedding and portraits. At the end of the day I think I am an emotional junkie as I love the reactions people have to my work.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
All my images are original!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Good customer service is vitally important to me
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Umbrellas! And a nice relaxed outlook on the day - there is no point in getting upset if the weather is not cooperating - we can still get some awesome shots in the rain!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Contemporary, reliable, modern, fun, caring
Describe how you got into photography.
Make sure you book a photographer you get one with - we'll be with you longer than anyone else on the day! There is no point in booking someone even if there are an award winning photographer if you don't get along as it will show in your images.
On the day my advice would be relax and enjoy it whatever happens!
