What is your most memorable wedding?
Each wedding has its own unique memorable experienced, from experiencing Lockdown weddings where couples could have only 15 guests, which I loved personally as it gave you time to speak to everyone and the couple wasn't as worried about trying to greet everyone. To have some great themed weddings such as a funfair, Musical Speeches, through to my first vineyard wedding in the UK... yes I came home with lots of wine too!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Relaxed, Natural, Laid-back, Fun, Candid
What about your business are you most proud of?
I like to think I'm very good at responding quickly to everyone, and answering all the questions, and trying to be as flexible as a laid back to everyone's needs.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Enjoy the day! Don't stress, and when it comes to group shots try to avoid having a long list because nobody wants to stand around waiting for hours on end, keep it short, and to the important people.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Lego Table Plan! - I think this was a really fun addition and the couple had spent so long on trying to think of the best lego character for each guest!
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I always love to meet people, so this can be in person or over zoom. This allows us to chat about what they want and the style they like to make sure I suit them. With all my full-day packages I offer an optional engagement shoot. This is so the couple can meet me, see how I work and this takes away some of the stress from the wedding day because they will already know what to expect. Next comes the wedding, and then after the big day you will receive an online gallery once all the photos are edited so you can see them all whilst waiting for your USB/Albums to arrive.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Natural ones, forget about the photographer have a moment and just be yourselves, chat, laugh, kiss. These are the ones you will remember not the awkward staged ones.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas and Wellies. Embrace the weather you can't change it, you could stay indoors but you can get some really nice moments under an umbrella. I get that some brides won't want to ruin the dress, but let's face it are you planning to wear it out again?
Describe how you got into photography.
It started at college, it was just something I instantly related to playing around in the darkroom, and from there I progressed onto university and had a year abroad in Australia. I've always worked in the photography industry and I'm a people person so 12 years later I found my way into weddings full time and I absolutely love it!
