What is your most memorable wedding?
The ability to understand what a bride and groom are looking for from their photographs and my attention to detail in the images.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
It has to be a Christmas wedding. The beautiful tree and lights just shone through in the Church. It was a magical day and to make it extra-special, the sun shone!
What about your business are you most proud of?
I have taken photos for years in various different subjects but I am definitely a people person. My fiance has been pushing me for a while to start my business. If you know him, then you will know how critical he is. So much so, that when he pays me a compliment, I know he really means it. He has always complimented my photography!
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Couple shots. These remain favourites over the years.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Bright, colourful, relaxed, genuine, professional
Describe your typical process with a couple.
A beautiful umbrella and lots of fun!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I would always arrange to meet with any couple prior to their booking. This way they can make sure that they are happy to invest in me as their photographer. At the meeting, I can show them some of my work and what packages I can provide. We would also talk through what they are looking for and whether there are any specific or special requests. Then, I would send out my contract with terms and conditions and request a deposit. I usually then book an engagement or pre-wedding shoot with them so that they get used to me and my style and feel at ease with me around on the wedding day. In the week leading up to the wedding, I would check in with the couple to ensure that there were no last minute adjustments or requests.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Always meet with any supplier but, especially the photographer. It is important for both parties to feel comfortable with each other so that the photographer can bring out the best for you on the day.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Definitely photos with pets - dogs, goats, horses and rabbits so far (although not all for one couple!).
