What is your most memorable wedding?
I went down to Gloucester October 2019, whilst the county was flooding, to take images in an Anglo Saxon church. It was raining, there was very little light and everything dripped with atmosphere. The couple and their family were lovely too, which always helps!

What about your business are you most proud of?
The fact that I get let in to tell people's stories on one of the biggest days of their lives. I'm always honoured to be invited in and I treat that storytelling very seriously.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Relax, don't overthink it and enjoy it! Leave little pockets of time with nothing planned - these will get filled up.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
I love it when people take the extra measures to get the people around them involved. It's always the speech from their child or the mementos of someone who couldn't be there that really adds to the day.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
We meet, and I get to know them and what's important about their wedding photography. We talk a few weeks before the wedding to make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible. I turn up on the day and take photos that I think will rock their world.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Being someone who always aims for spontaneous and authentic imagery...... I think the best photos are always unplanned
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
^^ See last question
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Surrounding yourself with people you love and having a good time. Bring an umbrella?
Describe how you got into photography.
I was given a camera as a wedding present and found this skill that I had no idea I had. Several years later, and after a lot of learning and practice I started shooting weddings and about 5 years in I think I found my voice. (I always wanted to shoot in a photojournalistic style but wasn't always brave enough to.)
It probably helped that our own wedding photographers were inspiring and awesome too.
