What about your business are you most proud of?
The style of pictures I take – un-posed, un-cheesy, natural, fun and beautifully composed.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
When choosing a photographer ask yourself: Is there a range of emotions in the images – eg love, beauty, joy, pride, excitement and humour? Do the pictures make me smile? Are they natural? Are they well-composed? Do they tell a story? Are they different from most wedding images you see?
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Couples contact me and we arrange to have an initial chat on FaceTime or Skype (or similar) to say hi and ask a few questions etc. It's the best way of finding out if I'm the best photographer for a couple.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
There's no such thing as a No.1 photo every couple should take. Each couple is different and every image should tell a story of a wedding day.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I don't stage photos apart from groups and couples pictures, and even then they look natural and unstaged.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Forget about the rain. It's your wedding day and nothing else matters! :-)
Describe how you got into photography.
I was the editor of a photography magazine and got to meet hundreds of world famous image-makers. This inspired me to start my own photography business.
