What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Always go with you heart. If you feel they are the one.. trust it.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
Every wedding has touches that are unique to that couple, so every wedding is always different and perfect because it portrays the characteristics of the couple.
but personally I am fond of a sweet cart.... especially if there are cola bottles kicking around on there.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We start with email communication, then more importantly we hang out, get to know each other in person and discuss our passions and loves. We make a solid friendship & trust level. Then we roll with the pre wedding shoot, then boom! time for wedding day fun!
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Thats a hard question, as I don't like to be the same with each wedding. As each couple is different, you have to portray those personalties through the art of photography. But I guess an image that I always love to take is confetti, there is so much happiness within that shot its awesome! but just remember not to inhale any as you walk through haha.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
I don't really get asked this question. My work and photography style isn't really original, its a little different. Because i'm not a posed or staged photographer, there isn't really a set list of shots for each wedding. this is because every wedding is different. each couple's love and relationship is unique. So I get to know you both, create a friendship and really listen to your love. Then I document & portray this through the art of photography. Like a story book of your love... but with images.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
I LOVE RAIN WEDDINGS! yessss! winner!! Rain is beautiful and can change lots of things, the way is changes colour, clouds diffusing the light, reflections on the ground and everyone dashing about with smiles on their faces! its great!
My advice is to just totally embrace the day, the weather does not change your love for each other, its just a beautiful element of nature, a refreshing feel that unique and 100% natural. We shoot rain or shine and we have fun rain or shine!
Don't worry or stress, Sadie got ya back with those snaps!
Describe how you got into photography.
back in the day when I left school I wanted to be a lawyer... found out in Sixth form I really wasn't academic and hated it and walked out of there! what a rebel! I knew my purpose was for something in life, but wasn't quite sure. I went to weymouth college and did a photography A level. Working with 35mm film I spent most of those two years in the darkroom. I got obsessed. I could never work with words on a page, but I found that I could express a story through imagery. it was like a hidden language. The most special memory of those days were that I could shoot how I felt, I could contain so much emotion in one image, then give that image to someone and they really feel that emotion too. That to me was magic and so powerful. Ever since then I believe that this is meant to be my purpose in life. Making people feel emotion through the visual stories that I narrate.
