Travel Notes

I cover south- and west-Wales, from Chepstow in the east, to St David's in the west, and from Swansea in the south, to mid-Wales in the north. I do not charge for travel expenses for these distances. I do sometimes cover weddings further afield, such as Bristol and north Wales, and would then charge something for travel expenses.

What is your most memorable wedding?

Each wedding that I cover is different - no two are the same. Even though I have carried out photography at more than 250 weddings, I am pleased to say that I can remember at least one small thing from each one.

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Patient, Unobtrusive, Reliable, Thoughtful, Professional

What about your business are you most proud of?

My ability to carry out all aspects of a job fully, professionally, and in a relaxed manner.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Allow more time than you think you will need for each aspect of you wedding day!

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

When photographing large groups, I ask everyone to initially close their eyes, and to open them on the count of three. "Three! Two! One! Open!". This ensures that they all have their eyes open at the same time (as well as getting them to stop chatting to the person standing next to them!).

Describe your typical process with a couple.

Listening to the needs of the couple, and keeping a watchful eye on the events of the day to make sure that I capture what's required.

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

Make sure that anyone who may not be around in the near future, perhaps through age or ill-health, is included.

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

A 'trash-the-dress' shot the day after. The bride, groom, their daughter and their two dogs, all lying down in the very cold River Tawe at Craig-y-Nos Castle!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

Anticipate bad weather in advance, and pre-arrange with the venue to have an area set aside for group/formal photos.

Describe how you got into photography.

My background is computing, which included website design. I initially bought a camera to take photos to use on client's websites, and then discovered that I had an eye for photography, and very much enjoyed it. I now work full time as a photographer.
