What do you love about working for Hey Saturday?

I came across Hey Saturday after I met Nicole on a photography workshop day and she told me all about it. I instantly thought it was a great idea and was keen to get involved. I photograph a lot of weddings and engagements and one of my favourite things is finding out how couples meet and what their love story is, so the idea of shooting dating photography really excites me – I can help the love story actually begin! I guess I’m just an old romantic and this is why I love working for Hey Saturday.

You are brilliant at making clients feel relaxed, how do you do that?

I’m not sure hahaha, I find meeting new people very interesting and hearing about what makes them tick and what they are looking for really fun. I’m a good listener so I think people really respond to that and before long I find we are chatting away like old friends and I’m asking them to keep me updated on their dating adventures. I’m pretty laid back and friendly so I think I just get on well with most people and it’s all about how I can make them feel good about themselves through their photos.

Who would your be dream client and why?

My dream client would be Dave Grohl but he dosen't need dating photos sadly so I guess I would have to say a client who is invested in the session, is relaxed and ready to have a fun day out with me!

What's your top dating tip?

I think that being who you are and loving yourself is so very important, that Oscar Wilde quote ‘Be yourself: everybody else is already taken’ is spot on. Embrace the inner geek (that’s me lol) or whoever you are and rock it!
