Obviously every wedding is different, but I love the fact that everybody is there to have fun and enjoy the day

I generally like all aspects of weddings, however, I particularly like candid parts of the day where you really can get some quirky pics, speeches etc

How would you describe your style and approach?

My style is probably best described as reportage or documentary style and I’d like to think my approach is very relaxed – if you’re chilled out so will your subjects be


Who, or what inspires you?

My family inspires me. However, if I were to choose a photographer that inspires me, it would have to be Henri Cartier-Bresson

Find a photographer that suits you and meet them several times and get to know them

Be relaxed, enjoy yourselves and the photos will say that

Israel or Greece, both countries I love and the scenery could be used with great advantage

Just being part of a day that is truly magical is pretty perfect really and capturing images that people will cherish forever can’t be beaten
