What is your most memorable wedding?
In Texas, I got to shoot a rifle whilst hanging with the groomsmen. They were all country cowboys and wanted to show this Londoner why they're so attached to their guns. I'm yet to be convinced but we got some great pictures. Stetsons, ten gallon hats, a porch, and miles of Texas country. It was quite the experience.

What about your business are you most proud of?
My craft is the culmination of my experiences and influences and the pictures I take resonate with me. I'm proud that I don't have to bend to the latest fads and trends, and that enough couples connect with my work so that I don't have to.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Ask to view full wedding galleries to get a clearer idea on what you're likely to receive. Do you have a connection with a particular photographer's work? Choose them, and do so in plenty of time.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The speeches are often my favourite time. The formal events of the day are over and guests are enjoying themselves over a meal and a drink (or two). I love the expressions I'm able to get during this time. The most personal touch that I've witnessed was a poem, written and read by the maid of honour to her friend, the bride. It was a 10 minute ode that covered their childhood to the here and now. A lump in throat moment.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The one that they didn't know was being taken.
