Describe your typical process with a couple.
With couples I like to laugh and joke with them. The reason why is that if I am too formal this will make the couple uneasy and this will affect the overall images at the end. The couple need to be relaxed, natural smiles and having a good time. It isn't a fashion shoot session its a wedding day, my aim is to deliver a mixture of posed shots, but more natural and relaxed shots the couple will love.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I believe with the family is very important as myself I did not get many at my sisters wedding and 10 years later I wished as well as my sister we got those pictures.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Lying on a golf course whilst the bride holds a golf club in her hands
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Do not worry, as it can be seen as a blessing. With regards to the shots of the bride and groom outside these can be done by using a speedflash and using my camera settings to freeze the rain to add a new dimension to the image. An umbrella shot is great too as another extra flare and dimension.
Describe how you got into photography.
I originally worked within graphical design. I hated the isolation of 9-5, confined to an office chair. I like to meet new people & travel, along with capturing the moment to create images that look amazing and beautiful at the same time
