What is your most memorable wedding?
My most memorable wedding was at Soughton Hall for the wedding of Rhiannon and Connor. The privacy and elegance of the building inside and out was just incredible! This place had everything; dreamy lighting, a well lit fireplace, golden chandeliers... The couple brought their dog for a few photos and it topped everything off :)

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
My No.1 wedding planning tip is always allow 30 minutes of newly wed shots for just the 2 of you! I know how busy the day is, but this mini session is vital and you will reap the rewards years later :)
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
My favourite personal touch I have seen at a wedding was a series of guests performing to keep the flow of energy and excitement throughout the day. After the Wedding reception, there was a harpist and piano player. After the Bride and Groom entered the Wedding Breakfast hall, there was a singer who lead a conga line around the hall. After the Wedding Breakfast, there was a magician! It was a day full of surprises.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Typically, I engage with my couples throughout the process, from initial emailing and calls through to the after care with albums. The most important part of the wedding day for me is the newly-wed couple shots, so I always emphasise the value and importance of this mini-session.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
The No.1 photo every couple should take is Golden Hour Portraits. The dreamy lighting on Newly-wed couples is just incredible. The camera always loves it and couples always love the results!
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
The most original photo I have been asked to take was during an Underwater ceremony! The Bride and Groom were dipped into warm water wearing their suit and bridal gown and they swam towards each other, eyes open, clothes sporadic in the water and had their first kiss. It was romantic, cinematic and epic rolled into one.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
An open mind is my recommendation for a rainy day. You and your dress may get a little wet but this will be a story you tell in years to come. Umbrellas make great props too!
Describe how you got into photography.
I was in China, the year was 2016. I took some photos of my group mate and she commented I had a good eye. I bought my first Canon camera shortly after and arranged a few model shoots which allowed me to get creative and fun! I never dreamed I would make a career out of this, but after doing my first few paid shoots, clients started to approach me and I thought; wow! This is exciting, I could really make this a permanent thing. From there, I bettered myself, attended workshops around the world, got better at shooting, editing and marketing and entered 2022 with some valuable wedding photography insights. I now serve clients to my best ability and love delivering photos of memories that will last generations!
