How did you get into photography?

I got into photography at fifteen when I borrowed my brothers camera, I had my first picture published at sixteen and then went on to do a degree in photography.

How would you describe your style?

My style is very natural, I still shoot for magazines and use the lighting skills I developed for editorial commissions for my wedding work. The benefit of this is that whatever the weather I can still create bright and beautiful images.

What is the best wedding you've ever shot?

I have photographed many beautiful weddings across the UK and have been lucky enough to photograph amazing weddings in Italy and Cyprus. The best wedding though is always the next one.

What tip would you give to Brides and Grooms when choosing a photographer?

My advice to brides and grooms when it comes to choosing a photographer is find someone you gel with. Meet as many as you can and make sure you see full weddings sets. Also ask to see some wet weddings so you can get a feel for the photographers experience in dealing with demanding conditions.
