VANESSA JONES Dip Photography and Cinematography, Trade Certificate in Graphic Design.

There are many photographers to choose from, not all of them are qualified, so how do you make a wise choice for that special day?

Experience helps me decide on locations, organising large groups of people into an attractive composition, and the graphic designing that completes your projects. I relate really well to people, listening to what the needs are and what it is my client is trying to achieve is a skill that brings results.

Two things I would look for in a photographer for any task is experience, secondly would be that special something - the x factor. Not everyone has this. During my career there has been many acolades, and these are very important for you, these are photographers honour badges and without them, you really have to wonder why the photographer you are hiring does not have any. That is why I display them proudly. I want you to feel confident you are hiring the right person for your task.
