Tell us a little about yourself??

I live with my husband in a sweet cottage with a wood burner. I love to make the most out of life, always looking for fun and laughter. Love drives me. I love food, movies, landscapes, and sunshine.

Tell us a little bit about the wedding day?

It was a day full of family, full of love and happy tears, and the sky was blue all day long.

How did you get into wedding photography?

I studied Psychology at Uni but there wasn’t any work to be found afterwards. It forced me to re-think what I wanted to do, someone told me I’ve got the eye for photography and the rest is history.

Can you share how you've made your wedding photography business a success? Any mistakes you made along the way?

Being warm to my couples, constantly studying photography techniques, where photography is moving, studying SEO, updating equipment and website. Most of all it’s about the rapport I develop with my couples, being interested in their day and giving them the best I can be.

What do you think a bride or groom should be looking for and not looking for in terms of wedding photography packages?

I don’t think there’s a right and wrong package. I would say this would be down to their personal needs

How do you advertise yourself and what for you has really worked?

Word of mouth. Organic google search. Venue recommendations.

What is the most challenging thing about a wedding.

Sometimes there isn’t much time for the photos. I have to think fast, capture emotions, be creative, and be perceptive in a split second whilst entering the settings I think will work for what’s in front of me. I get excited about what might happen next.

Do you have an approach to a wedding?

My approach is to be warm and friendly, put people at ease as most people don’t like their photo taken. I try and gel in with the wedding party and like to get natural, romantic, and fun images.

Who or what inspires you?

Love inspires me. Capturing a moment that gives a person a feeling of value, showing them how beautiful they are inside and out.

Secondly, capturing something really creative inspires me too. I love to intrigue people with an image.

Best & Worst marketing idea so far?

No bad ideas really. As times change it’s more useful to focus on organic google listings.

If you weren't a photographer, what would you be?

A neuroscientist!

Share your favourite image of the day and why?

Because the colours are great, the word is great, and it was a lot of fun with those involved to spell the word!

Do you have any goals for the future photography related or otherwise?

Just to keep inspiring my couples and my colleagues. To deliver a sense of wonder in my images to my couples.

I’m doing training courses too for those wanting to become wedding photographers.

What do you think is key to being a successful wedding photographer?

I’d say the key is to love what you do, to believe in yourself, and to understand how to get the best out of your equipment.

Are there any other wedding photographers whose work inspires you, can be a well know photographer or somebody you've stumbled across?

Ross Harvey, Adam Johnson.

Proudest moment so far. Photography related or otherwise?

In 2010 I won the best wedding photographer in Devon with the South West Photography Awards, that was a really special feeling for me.

Generally though, just remaining successful is a pretty good thing.
