What is your most memorable wedding?
Ellie and Sarkis , at the Coco Hotel in the Gambia. Amazing light, location fright on the beach, and a brilliant crowd from all around the world. (and I'm sure I should say my own too!)
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Exciting, original, relaxed, fun, and more fun.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I get to travel around the country (and the world!), photographing some of the most amazing days of people's lives. I love my job.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't be scared to have the wedding you really want. Worry less about what your family and friends may expect - they'll love the wedding you chose.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A jenga block guestbook - so the couple could have fun while reading the comments back in years to come!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We love to look through portfolios of our work with new couples - it can spark great conversations and help them to express what they would really love from their own photos. They often come away with a few ideas too!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
An informal portrait of the bride a groom. A shot that really shows off their personality and how they are together. Even the most camera shy couple look great, and I think it's the photo that they really will look back at with a smile.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A photo of the bride (diary farmer) and groom (chicken farmer) with a cow and a chicken! Chickens and cows don't really mix.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umberellas and wellies - rain can make for great photos! and a photographer that is good with flash guns and artificial light.
Describe how you got into photography.
I used to work as a press photographer. I don't like to set things up - I love to tell the actual story with the camera.
