What is your most memorable wedding?
My own of course!
Strangely enough, being a photographer and all, I didn't take more than a few selfies on my wedding day. I chose a photographer whose work I love and I often use as inspiration so I trusted him completely and felt totally relaxed.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.
Romantic, authentic, natural, emotional & intimate.
What about your business are you most proud of?
That I put my couples at the centre of what I do. Weddings are a collection of moments that represent your life together and all the days that have led you here. They’re a celebration of love, friendship and all the values that are important to you. Your love is unique and I believe that you deserve meaningful wedding photos that honour your story and capture who you are. You should be able to focus on what matters: being present, laughing, enjoying your day and creating magical memories.
Your wedding day isn't about me as a photographer, it's about you.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Give yourself time and space for the emotional journey that is planning a wedding. My biggest piece of advice is to sit down together and talk before you even start planning. Grab a pen and paper and ask yourselves questions like "What do we really want? What does this wedding mean to us?" Once you have the answer, make it your top priority so that every wedding planning decision you make from now on takes you one step closer to that.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
There are too many to choose from... I develop a close relationship with each of my couples that often lasts beyond their wedding, it would be unfair to single out one wedding or one detail that stands out amongst the others.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Step 1 - Get in touch!
Step 2 - Let’s chat about your wedding so I can put together a custom quote for you.
Step 3 - Lets’ rock your wedding day and create beautiful photos you'll love.
Step 4 (optional) - Bore people to death with your wedding photos for years and years to come.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
There isn't one because weddings aren't one-size-fits-all. Every couple has a unique love story so their wedding day and their wedding photos should reflect who they are. Don't start planning your wedding thinking that you must do this or you must have that, instead ask yourselves "what do I really want?". I have great advice about this on my blog!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
Again, every wedding is different and unique. Most of the couples that choose me as their wedding photographer tend to do things in their own way so we don't go into the wedding with a shot list. We'll have a plan and a rough timeline and then we go with the flow and capture the day as it unfolds.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace it! We live in England after all so a rainy wedding is always a possibility, make sure you have some pretty umbrellas prepared just in case and enjoy your day regardless.
Describe how you got into photography.
Well, it's a rather long and boring story so instead, I'll tell you a little about me. You probably don’t want a total stranger showing up on your wedding day to photograph it and that’s why I’m all about getting to know each other BEFORE the big day. I LOOOOVE chocolate. Also, coffee, rum and travelling. I’m a lively Argentine living in Brighton with my English husband, Stephen. Shyness is not one of my many qualities I’m afraid! Technically, I’m French but you can ask me more about that over coffee. If you'd like to know more, there's a handy “about me” page on my website which sums me up pretty well, complete with some quick facts and an interactive map.
