Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
What about your business are you most proud of?
That my clients love their photos, say they enjoyed the experience and had an amazing wedding day.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Don't overthink things & prioritise enjoying yourself!
I love couples who break the rules and don't think they have to do something because convention dictates they should.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to check we get along first, it's so important that the couple feel comfortable with their photographer.
I like to have a meeting before a couple book, where we can go through their ideas & timings. Once they've booked and we've got all the formal paperwork and things done I encourage them to stay in touch with me on social media. We can get to know each other a bit before the day and they know where I am if they have any questions.
Most couples opt for a little engagement shoot which is about getting comfortable in front of the camera and getting some lovely photos somewhere special.
We then have a planning meeting a wee while before the wedding and make a plan for their day. This means that on the day, we're on the same page and don't have to think about things. We can all relax and enjoy the day!
I love getting to know people and love my job!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A natural photo of them being themselves and having fun.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas and perhaps a leather jacket. The clear umbrellas are great!
Describe how you got into photography.
I always loved taking photographs as a kid and after university my first job was in publicity, I learnt lots in that job about photography and editing.
I also loved business and always dreamed of having my own business.
For years I did photography as a hobby whilst working as a food scientist and then one day I was asked to second shoot for a friends photography business, and from that, I got asked to shoot my first wedding and I've never looked back!
