Our own of course! And then each and every one of my wedding clients weddings. Each is special and unique in their own way.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Fun, relaxed, creative, real, clean.
What about your business are you most proud of?
The personal relationship that I've built with families over the years and being able to watch their families grow and enjoy life together.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Take time out for just the two of you on your wedding day.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
A wedding photo from each of the parents' wedding days next to the wedding cake.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Let's meet up and chat about your plans first. Then it's over to you to enjoy your day and have the best day of your life. A few weeks later and then it's up to me to make you laugh and cry as you relive your day again.. and again.. and for years to come.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
A beautiful image of the two of you for the mantel piece.. yes it's traditional but make it your own by showing your personality (Tip. Let hubbie have a special joke ready to tell you. And you can giggle about the inside joke for years to come when you see the photo on your mantel piece!)
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Just go with it.. it'll add to the story of your wedding day. At some point in the day it is likely to be dry so sneak out then and have some beautiful couple portraits then quick.
Describe how you got into photography.
I started photographing friends and family by the age of 12 or 13 and just loved it. Oh that excitement of getting a roll of film back!! I photographed all kinds of subjects at first but gradually I realised my true love was photographing people.. and not people showing me their camera face (you know.. like a "telephone voice") but waiting and showing them an image of the real them photographed in the quiet in between moments.
