What is your most memorable wedding?
I've been fortunate to photograph at some amazing venues. The Four Seasons in Paris, Villa Padierna in Marbella, Castles in Spain so to narrow this down to one would be difficult. I've met some wonderful people so I can say that those memories are my favourite.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Working full time doing what I love.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Make the day as personal to you as you can. It is after all your day. If you can, use a wedding planner or stylist to help with this.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I've seen an empty seat with a bouquet for a bridesmaid who sadly passed before the wedding. Although very sad, it was an incredibly beautiful gesture and one that I have never forgotten.
