What is your most memorable wedding?
I really loved Megan and Vicky’s wedding in Dalduff Farm. It was such a beautiful day. Crisp and wintery. Everything was so personal. They had a humanist celebrant, Susan, who was great. The farm had so many places for amazing photos.

Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to zoom or meet for a chat first to see if we get on. Then we discuss what you are looking for. On the day I like to work quickly. I try to get to the venue about an hour before the ceremony to catch your guests as they arrive. I take a mix of formal portraits and reportage more natural shots. My partner aims to get detail shots of the venue and is excellent at the reportage images.
