My photographs are a record of an event, a day & a moment in time & all of the people present. The photographs hang on walls, or are in often looked at albums. Their a record of family, friends & celebration
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Plan ahead. Plan as thoroughly as you can. But then on the day, let it all go. Go with the flow & enjoy the day, however close to the original plan it is.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
The speeches. It never used to be. But now that I have a daughter, the Father of the Bride speech always gets to me.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
I work WITH people to create and capture their vision of the day. They create it. I record it.

Just the natural ones. The ones of people being themselves. They are the ones that increase their value over time.

Embrace it. You can't change it.
Describe how you got into photography.
I photographed my grandparents golden wedding anniversary when I was 10 (My dad gave me the camera to keep me quiet). I loved that I'd avoided being in any of the photos. If you don't want to be in the photos, be the photographer :-)
