What is your most memorable wedding?
Every wedding I shoot has memorable parts that make each one special to me and I love them all. I love it when couples include their fur babies and have lots of personalised touches to their day.
However, on the 22nd October at Heaven and Sam's wedding, Sam was the final speech and at the end of his speech, him and Heaven grabbed two confetti cannons and as they had all of their most loved people in one room, they wanted to do a gender revel and when those cannons exploded and lots of blue confetti fell down, I don't think there was a dry eye in the house. It was such special moment to capture.

What about your business are you most proud of?
This little pink world of mine started in 2018 and it hasn't always been an easy ride but I am proud that I have kept going when it has got tough. I always went full time at the start of 2022, which has been scary but giving my couples and LB Photography is everything.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
It is your wedding, no one else's. Plan the wedding you want, invite the people you want, have the venue you want. This day is about you and your partner and to celebrate your love. So make sure the day is about you.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My favourite personal touch this year is couples bringing their fur babies along. They are part of your family and it is so wonderful to have them there, even if it is just for a few snaps.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
When you contact me, whether it is via email, message or a phone call, we will have a quick chat about your day and then book to meet up over a cuppa and cake (I like cake by the way!) This is where we will go into more detail about your wedding. For example, what you expect from me, any special photo you would like, venues and times. I will also confirm which package you want and complete the booking form and pay a deposit. After that, I will leave you alone until about a month or two before the big day, just to confirm all the details with you.
Then when your day arrives, I am all yours. Doesn't matter if you just have me for the reception or ceremony or if you have me all day. I do not book any other job on your day. I want you to feel comfortable in knowing that you are my priority on your wedding day.
I will be there capturing those all important shots of you both and your guest but I will also stand back and capture those little moments, the knowing look and the side smiles that capture all those feels, which are my absolute favourite photos to capture. They are so unique to each person and it is magically to capture them to be treasured for a lifetime.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I don't think there is one photo for every couple that they should take... is that a bit wrong of me to say?!
Every couple is unique. They have their own story and I love getting to know a couple so I can capture any photo that they want or didn't even know they wanted. However, with that being said, I always make sure that when I do the couple's portraits, I take them both off away from all their guest, just to have some time to themselves. It is so important.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I have a couple, one of my brides had 13 bridesmaids so I had all the bridesmaids make a circle around the bride to frame her beautiful face and then I have another couple have a double decker bus, so that was fun!
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Go with the flow!
If you are happy to dance around in the rain and jump in puddles, then so am I! However, if you want to stay dry then that's not a problem either.
Describe how you got into photography.
Well... I don't have the back story of loving it since I could remember but I suppose it started after I had my daughter. I took a lot of photos, which were on my phone and camera phones weren't that great when they first came out. However, I slowly progressed and upgrade to a compact and then it went from there.
Not the greatest story but it is part of mine!
