Reading, writing fiction, films, and family.
What trends are you seeing for 2018/19?
Clients who are booking me want to see the essence of their day, in a natural way. I am seeing less staged and more natural work being celebrated.

Capturing moments in natural ways.
Whose celebrity wedding (dead or alive) would you love work on?
I would have loved to have gone behind the scenes and shot pure candid documentary at George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin’s wedding.
