What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
You can't please everyone. Its your day do what is right for you.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I like to meet with my couples prior to being booked to enable us to get to know each other, to make sure we can build a rapport, at the end of the day no one spends more time with a couple on their wedding day than the photographer so it is vitally important that there is a good rapport, this will ensure the couple are relaxed around the photographer and ensuring great images will be produced. I like to get an idea of how they see the day panning out, what sort of images they want. What the venue is like.
Following a booking, I will arrange a meeting about 4-6 weeks prior to the day to get a full itinerary of the day. So I know where I am needed and at what times. During this meeting I will go through a shot list with the couple to make sure no must have images are missed on the day.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A groom had lost his father, and wanted a shot of him having a glass of whisky by his headstone. One last drink with his old man before getting married. A really humbling and evocative experience for me and a photo for him to treasure for a lifetime.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Embrace it. Its your special day, don't let mother nature ruin it. Smile, laugh and grab an umbrella
Describe how you got into photography.
My grandparents were keen photographers, as was my father. I have had a camera since I could walk. It was inevitable. I was always the person that took the photos at any family event, wedding whatever. If there was an occasion, or even if there wasn't you would find me buzzing around taking photographs.
