What is your most memorable wedding?
A beautiful heartfelt and joyously emotional wedding of a wonderful couple, where the bride gave birth three days before her wedding day. It was a wedding, a Christening , a newborn family shoot and a big party all rolled into one and it was a day I will never forget.

Try to make time to take a couple of moments throughout your wedding to stop and breathe it all in, your wedding day goes so quickly.

A locket containing photos of passed loved ones attached to a bride's bouquet, so thoughtful.
Or for fun element, a Go Pro attached to a bottle of Whiskey and passed around the wedding guests, which made for some hilarious viewing!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to get to know a couple as much a possible before their wedding.
I firstly like to arrange an informal meeting, so we can have a face to face chat, then a venue visit and then we will work on the creative process together. I have a client consultation period that can last for months, sometimes years to plan your wedding photography creatively. Your photography timings will be planned so that it doesn't conflict with you enjoying your day.

A beautiful portrait shot of you together, something that brings back all the emotion that you feel on your wedding day.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A back lit, pitch black, arty portrait in the middle of December, in the snow! Cold but so worth it!

Embrace it, be prepared to wrap up warm and work with your photographer to get creative and make the most of the romantic rain.
Describe how you got into photography.
I discovered it as a child and was hooked! I studied a Fine Art Photography Degree and that was it, calling found!
