Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, natural, candid, unobtrusive, elegant
What about your business are you most proud of?
The moment my couples receive their photos and actually gasp at how much they love them!!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Relax and try to enjoy the process
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Handwritten place cards - the bride taught herself calligraphy so she could do them herself!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Email exchange to see which packages might be a fit, followed by a phone chat, then everything is totally automated from the moment a couple decides to book: they receive an online contract, deposit is paid by credit card (or bank transfer), and they receive a little questionnaire to give me all the key details for their day (like the timeline).
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
At least one family group photo. The new style most folks want is un-posed and candid, but it's nice to include a group photo in thank you cards. Plus, the group photo is the one the parents & grandparents often print and frame ;-)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace it! Every wedding day is unique, rain or shine. Rainy day photos are some of the most fun to shoot because they're usually quick-paced, fun and spontaneous (think bride and groom dashing for cover, while the groom shields his new wife from the rain).
