How would you describe your wedding photography style and what makes you unique? 
Your Story Beautifully Told is my mantra. Stunning, natural documentary images mixed with beautiful groups and portraits, that won’t take you away from your guests for too long. My aim is to bring your day back to life again through my pictures. My groups and portraits have a very elegant, modern editorial feel. My groups look like they’ve stepped off the pages of Vanity Fair. My couples shoots are relaxed, I choose gentle direction as opposed to anything cheesy.

How would you describe your working style?  
I blend in. I’m calm, professional and flexible. I work hard for my clients; I want to surpass their expectations. 

Do you shoot digitally or with film? Or both? 
I shoot digitally.

What type of equipment do you use?  
Canon cameras and lens.

Do you shoot in colour and black and white?  
My clients receive everything in both colour and black & white.

What can you offer couples? Can they customise the package with you? 
I offer a range of albums and books, everything is tailored to each client individually. 

Do you include an engagement shoot? 
They can book one. I’ve won awards for my engagement photography and it’s something I really enjoy. My aim is to make sure my clients feel relaxed before the wedding and give them a set of truly stunning images of the two of them. 

How long after the wedding will the couple receive their proofs?  
Within a month, often much sooner.

How far in advance should couples book you?  
As soon as possible, I only take on a limited amount of commissions per year to ensure my customer service is first class.

What information do you need from the couple before the wedding day?
A timetable, a list of group pictures and up to date contact details

What are you favourite trends?  
I’m not into trends really. As Yves Saint Laurent once said 'Fashions fade, style is eternal'.

What are you expecting see more mainstream/more common in the next year or two? 
Hopefully unplugged weddings! Exiting the church under a tunnel of iPhones or seeing my friends and family constantly starring at screen all day is not something I wanted at my wedding. I had an unplugged day – I wanted people to spend the day enjoying and participating, not capturing. I hope that idea will spread – it makes a huge difference.

If you were getting married, how would you choose your wedding photographer?  
Experience is key. How long have they been going, how many weddings have they shot? I wouldn’t want to spend the whole day posing, I’d want a few elegant groups and portraits but I’d want to get on and enjoy the day and trust that the photographer was going to deliver images to help me relive it. I’d read Google reviews – if they don’t have many, why not? I’d also ask to see a whole wedding. It’s easy to get a few hero shots – it’s much harder to be consistent wedding after wedding throughout the whole day.
