What is your most memorable wedding?
Hard to nail down to one in particular. There are plenty of wonderful moments in every wedding. Each one is very personal to each couple and special in its own way. I've always found the smaller weddings are more intimate and special and I love to capture that feeling in my photos.
Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

What about your business are you most proud of?
When a couple sees the photos of their wedding for the first time and relive the day.
What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?
Remember it's YOUR wedding so plan what you want to have. Not what other people think you should have.
What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?
When the couple had Polaroid cameras for guests to pass around at the reception. The guests then stuck the polarioids into the guest book with a message to create a photo book of the evening.
Describe your typical process with a couple.
Couples come for a first meeting where I explain my process and find about more about them and their plans. They sign an agreement and pay a deposit and we arrange a preshoot so they get a feel for being my subjects. We set times and a list of must have shots for their wedding before the big day. After the wedding we have another meeting to flick through the photos and hand over their own memory box to take home.
What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?
Some kind of group shot with everyone in. It doesn't have to have confetti in but it always makes for a great photo.
What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?
A couple once had a barge to take them from the wedding venue to the reception and I got to take photos on the barge which made for some special images.
What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?
Umbrellas and a positive attitude. Rain presents a challenge but doesn't make a photo shoot impossible!
Describe how you got into photography.
I found my passion for creativity almost by accident while at school. I then had lots of work experience before I was getting my own work while still in university which neatly transitioned into setting up my business and getting to where I am now.
