How did you get into wedding photography?
I got my first camera at the age of 19 when I moved to London and started experimenting shooting around the city, falling in love with it and photography at the same time. I just photographed for fun for the next four years, just for myself. When I graduated from university with a degree in Theology, I realised there was nothing else that was bringing me as much joy as photography, and that it was all I wanted to do. So, I started my business with no plan in mind other than shoot as much as I could. I shot a friend’s wedding in March 2010 and have not looked back since. I also enjoy hosting workshops for photographers and I focus very much on them finding their own style and vision.

That is why I created The Signature Style System, an online course for photographers who want to find their style and voice in this industry.

What is your favourite wedding tradition to capture on camera?
There are so many, it’s hard to pick just one. One of my favourites is when the newlyweds walk down the aisle under a storm of confetti – it always makes for such a great shot! But a personal favourite are the speeches. I love how emotional they are!

What’s the biggest challenge shooting at a wedding?
You have to be quick and in a million places at the same time. Most moments at weddings are unique and you don’t get them twice so you have to be razor sharp and focused all the time and that can make it really stressful. I usually don’t notice how tense I’ve been until after it’s all over!
