What is your most memorable wedding?
It may be a little cliche but I grew up around photography. My mother attended night classes at college and when she couldn't find or afford childcare, she would take me along with her. It was here I was introduced to negative film photography and dark room processing. From there, photography became my hobby before it became a profession. I often look at things differently. I have a habit of people watching and seeing how people interact. Elderly couples holding hands on a bus, fathers protecting their newborns on a shopping trip with their significant other. I escaped my reality with photography and thats when I knew it would be a lifelong career for me.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Keep an expanding file. This way you can file all of your contracts and schedules as well as keep all your payments and documents organised. You can date each pocket with the month so you keep on track with all your payment dates and meetings with venues/suppliers.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Prepare for the weather but DO NOT let it define your wedding day. Make it a part of your wedding day story. If it rains... heck, go out and dance in the rain. It'll make for beautiful photographs but more importantly, beautiful memories.

We go for a hot beverage while we discuss your day and your plans. I talk you through my process here and hand you a little welcome pack once a booking is confirmed.
