What is your most memorable wedding?
I actually loved how personal the weddings during the covid restrictions were! Small church weddings and a picnic "back at 'Mum's" really felt cute and made you appreciate what a wedding should be about!
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
My style changes between discrete and candid, getting more involved in arrangements if I know something is needed, but then back to discrete again as soon as I can. It' great when I'm told people didn't really know I was there, but at the same time I know I can step up and deal with people-management, and time-management, in a friendly way and never bossy or annoying! I love getting told I'm 'doing a great job' by family members, when they haven't even seen the photos yet!
What about your business are you most proud of?
I'm proud of how regularly I get comments about being 'the right sort of photographer' quite aside from quality photographs, people enjoying their wedding day, being put at ease and spending maximum time with guests, is just as important as great photos to look back on.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
If you can't change the weather, you may as well embrace it! Later in the day, if you don't mind getting a little more damp, go get some dramatic rain photos, with off-camera lighting. They are so unique, I can't think of another time in your life you'll have a kitted-out photographer with you ready to get that sort of thing, so just treat it as another excuse for a unique photo!
Describe how you got into photography.
I trained up in the family business back in 2001, and I've now taken the business over, with over twenty years and 1000 weddings' experience!
