Booking a photographer is a pretty big deal! You don’t want to spend your day with just anyone. This is the one supplier that you will spend time with before the wedding (planning, prepping, having a pre shoot etc). You may spend up to 12 hours with your photographer on your wedding day (depending on your choice of coverage). They will also be one of the only suppliers that you are in contact with after the wedding as the album design process begins. So it is really important to make sure that you feel a good connection and that you can work together well.
So here is a little insight and 5 things you probably don’t know about me.
1: Coffee addict
I enjoy my morning brew so much that I get up at 5am to sit and enjoy it in complete peace lol. I also find I’m incredibly productive at that time so coffee in hand I can take over the world lol.
2: I am a workaholic.
I love what I do so I think about work related things constantly! Working with my husband Dave, I often burst into conversation about an idea for a shot (often over breakfast when he has only just taken his first sip of coffee and has to tone down my enthusiasm), at least until he has woken up properly! 🙂 I am the complete dreamer he is the realist 🙂 It works pretty well to bring me back to earth when needed!!!!
I was actually working in the recent picture of me here, on the balcony of our holiday apartment at 5am before everyone woke! Can you also spot the coffee! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Because I have so many ideas, (the crazy artist in me!) I have learnt to always carry a notebook so I can scribble them down. It saves getting back to the office and not having a clue what that amazing brainwave was!!! 🙂 Anyone else super forgetful?
3: I am a super proud mother.
I always wanted to be a mum and our oldest arrived in an incredibly dramatic way (not the way I had imagined!) and it was quite traumatic but that’s a whole other story!
Now he is still dramatic lol but he literally makes every single day so much fun. He fills our home with laughter, mess and noise (his younger brother helps with that too!) but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
We were blessed with our second son two years ago. He had a much calmer entrance to the world (2 paracetamols and the job was done lol) and he is generally pretty laid back. He adores his big brother and is like his shadow copying everything he does. They literally make my heart smile and I realize how lucky I am every single day to have them in my life.
4: I love the sea
I was born in the city but the sea is my happy place, I love the sound of the waves, the smell of the seaweed, the vastness of nothing but sea ahead. I love to walk by the sea, play with the boys there and I feel refreshed and renewed by the sea air!
5: I love quotes
I even have a tattoo of one and it includes reference to the sea!!! 🙂
