What is your most memorable wedding?
I genuinely could not pick one. It's like asking a mother to choose between her children.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Natural. Relaxed. Timeless. Candid. Yours.
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm most proud of how ew make couples feel - there's is honestly nothing more rewarding than when couples get in touch months after the wedding to just remind me how much they love the photos and how every time people come over to the house, no one can shut up about how great the photos hanging on the wall are. It's so rewarding knowing that what I do stays with couples for life.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
The most important thing to consider when picking your wedding photographer is whether this is someone you want there on your wedding day. Your photographer is going to be around you pretty much all day. Make sure its someone you can trust and have rapport with. This is why by the day of the wedding; I’ll have met my couples at least three times. And often, they’ll have worked with me before already in a pre-wedding session. A camera is a lot less intimidating when it is held by someone you trust.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I was working with a bride one time who loved vintage cameras (her grandfather had owned a photography shop), and she had some photos of her venue that were taken back in the 60’s, which she had shown me during one of our meetings. So, I surprised them by bringing my grandfather’s camera and some vintage style film to their wedding, and we recreated the photos, but with the couple standing in them. They really loved it, that was super rewarding. Ever since I have offered vintage cameras as an optional extra, I find antique cameras a nice challenge to work with, and they have a certain look which is hard to recreate.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We like to get to know our couples. So every experience is unique.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
There isn't one. The gallery should just be you enjoying your day to the full - my job is to capture it as it happens.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Well, not one we planned to take! But Bex and Frankie's venue fell down the night before the wedding (Scottish Wind and 'permanent' marquees don't mix to well. So we decided to make the most of it and we went down to the Marquee and did photos of the guys in front of it - who couldn't stop laughing - and I know for a fact it's their favourite photo form their wedding, and the one they'll show their children and grandchildren one day. A proper memory moment.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
At the end of the day, you'll be too busy enjoying yourself and surrounded by all your friends and family to worry about the weather. Your wedding day is all about your love for each other and celebrating that love with all your friends and family. No matter the weather, rain or shine we will be there to capture the story of you and your amazing wedding day!
Describe how you got into photography.
At the time I was working in film and tv, on a show called 'SUCESSION' by H.B.O and a friend asked me to shoot her wedding... I actually said no the first three times she asked me. I really did not trust myself to shoot a wedding... I mean, it’s a wedding, right? What if I do a bad job? But on fourth time of asking, she told me she’d already booked me a plane ticket to Greece, so I might as well bring my camera. I’m very glad Megan forced me to do it, as I completely and utterly fell in love with it. When I got home, the whole time all I kept thinking about was this dream starting up as a wedding photographer... I think when something grabs your mind quite as thoroughly as that, you need to take a leap of faith and follow it. So, I took that leap of faith, and walked out of a job with a Netflix production a few months later to start the business. I am really glad I did it, I now have the best job in the world.
