How long have you been shooting weddings?

I shot my first wedding in 2014 for my friend Lauren. I then shot another friend's wedding, and it went from there really - friends of friends, friends of their friends before branching out to people that had come across my work. I work alongside several venues as a recommended supplier, and don't advertise much. Recommendations go a long way!

How many weddings do you do a year?

In between corporate work for brands and businesses, I average about 20-30 weddings a year. In wedding season from April - September, my calendar gets pretty full quickly and I like to keep some months free for a good work/life balance. I'm concentrating on taking on fewer weddings in the future to be able to give even more to my future couples.

What do you wear when filming a wedding?

During a wedding consultation with a couple, they told me that a videographer at their friend's wedding wore a polo shirt & shorts...! My motto is 'dress like a guest' - so I tend to keep it smart casual to keep low-profile and stay as discreet and unobtrusive as possible.

What do you enjoy about shooting weddings?

Well, weddings are the complete opposite end of the scale when compared to promotional and brand videos. It's a story that tells itself - everyone looks amazing, the weather is (usually) great, full of emotion, laughter, tears and memories. I love keeping in touch with my wedding clients. Being such a big part of their big day is something special and I cherish the friendships I make with each one!
