What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
I have found that over the years clients embarking on their wedding planning journey can all be consuming. I am very aware of the challenges that you can face while planning your Wedding. Having all of your family and loved ones at their very best can be a very emotive and happy time. When the years of your planning come to fruition, my advice is to EMBRACE YOUR DAY AND OWN IT.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Many years ago I attended a friend's wedding down in Cornwall. The table name decorations were pebbles that had been taken from the beach with our names written on them. We still have these keepsakes to this day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I have to say one of my favorite shots is the confetti line. Following the ceremony, whether it be civil of the church. This is I chance for people to shout, cheer, and celebrate your marriage. This image is always very colorful and a great action shot. It's also been proven to be a favorite of the Bride and Goom over the years.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
As we live in the UK, we can not always guarantee the weather, so we must embrace it. This is why I always have umbrellas with me. Although some of the most striking and dramatic images I have taken have been in adverse weather conditions. I am aware that this doesn't not suit some people and sometimes we will have to take the shoot inside. As a professional photographer, I will always check out any new venue to ensure I can create beautiful and creative imagery. If you view my website at www.rollingsphotography.com you can see many examples of what I can do in difficult weather conditions.
Describe how you got into photography.
If you view my website, on the front page are two images of myself. One of a lad of fifteen, and a recent shot. I have had a passion for photography all of my life and have been fortunate enough to turn my passion into a living.
