What is your most memorable wedding?
Doing bride and groom portraits in a speedboat on Lake Como was a pretty spectacular moment!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Observational, relaxed, creative, modern, fun.
What about your business are you most proud of?
It's such a huge privilege to photograph someone's wedding - I'm super proud (and humbled) each time I'm hired to do it.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Allow buffers in your timeline. Things will always run over... But on the day don't let things like that spoil your mood - someone else can worry about it!
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
There have been so many... I especially loved the volcano cake - made by the father of the bride - which actually erupted periodically throughout the reception.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
1. We have a chat in person on on Zoom. We click! 2. We sign a contract and you pay a booking fee to reserve your date. 3. Pre-wedding session if you've booked one. 4. 4-6 weeks before the date I send you a questionnaire and we chat over the details. Your balance is due. 5. Wedding day! I send some previews over ASAP then... 6. All your photos within 4 weeks. 7. We create your album etc. 8. We stay in touch, I hope (I'm available for family sessions!)
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
That moment just after the ceremony when you've escaped your guests for a few seconds together alone. It doesn't have to be a groundbreaking photo, it's just a very special moment in time that it's lovely to have a record of.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
There was one bride who REALLY wanted it to rain for her wedding photos (!) but the weather gods had other ideas and so it wasn't to be.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
A sense of fun. Yep, that's the most important thing. Wellies are also good :)
Describe how you got into photography.
Ooh, *looks back into the mists of time...* I studied photography at school and uni, then worked at other things. Eventually it was time to give it a go and here I am. I came to wedding photography via music and editorial portrait photography.
