  • Nikon 85mm f1.8 lens

Do you shoot with a backup camera?

Yes, I always carry my two camera bodies with me.

I am very nervous infront of the camera how do you handle uneasy clients?

My aim is to make you feel relaxed on your wedding day. During your bridal/groom portraits & couple session I offer direction and photograph you from the best angles. Although I direct you my photos always look natural and
not overly 'posed'. With other lifestyle shoots I work in the same way, with a little guidance to ensure you are relaxed and have fun while ensuring I get the best shots!

Do you work with an assistant or 2nd shooter at weddings?

Yes, I always have an assistant with me at weddings. My assistant is there to help me on the day with my equipment and lighting etc. If however, you would prefer a 2nd shooter please let me know and I can arrange a 2nd shooter for an additional fee.

What is the best time of day for shoots?

The hour before sunset known as the 'golden hour' offers that romantic, dreamy warm glow. Photographers are known to get very excited about this light as it makes for stunning photos!
If you book a family shoot and it is a difficult time for your little ones I am happy to work around this and shoot a bit earlier.

Will we get featured in a magazine or blog?

Although many of my weddings do get featured, this is not always guaranteed. Magazines & blogs always look for colourful and unique weddings.

Do you shoot destination weddings?

I most certainly do! I love travelling and have an international passport which makes this a little easier! Please contact me for a tailor made quote for your destination wedding.
