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 torrentially, there was very little light and everything dripped with atmosphere.

What about your business are you most proud of?
The fact that I get invited 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. The day goes SO fast.
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 chat. 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 - and most importantly let them relive their day.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
I think a photo that captures who you really are
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Surrounding yourself with people you love and having a good time. Bring an umbrella?
Also, it rarely rains all day, keep an eye out for the breaks and you can be rewarded with beautiful light or even a rainbow.
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.)
