 In three words describe each other as individuals

Mitch about Cheryl – Intelligent, Patient and Compassionate

Cheryl about Mitch – Loyal, Funny and Driven

 How did you meet?

We met at a formal when we were both at university. Making an impression with a cheeky goodnight kiss before the end, we probably didn’t imagine then that would lead us still being together 8 years later!

 Tell us the one quality you love most about each other…

Cheryl has this amazing capacity for compassion (to be compassionate).  It’s a quality that is passively infectious; and is spread effortlessly through the way she carries herself every-day – a quality that I respect, adore and value above all else.

Aside from being great fun to be around, Mitch is fiercely loyal to his friends and family and would always go to bat and be there every time and when it really counts. I know I can count on him to have my back.

Where did you go for you honeymoon and why?

We have not had a honeymoon, we’re on the verge of finalizing the purchase of a home, but as soon as we get the chance, we’ll be heading off for an adventure in either Europe, Japan or Maldives; they will be great spots that have great food (we’re big foodies) and we’d love exploring together.

What advice would you give to future brides to be? Any tips or tricks?

Do your homework and decide on the things you are happy to save or splurge on. Also, pack a ‘go’ bag of all your essentials!

There’s going to be a few stressful moments leading up to the wedding – remember to take a step back and enjoy the experience. Anything that hasn’t been planned can’t have been that important in the first place. Just have fun as it makes for better photos and enjoy the day as it goes by far too quickly!

 What do you love most about being married?

Us vs The World. I have a partner that is unwavering in her support and dedication. Someone who is not afraid to speak her mind and give her honest opinions , even when she knows  it might hurt (but knows I have to hear it).

My perfect wedding to shoot includes an awesome bunch of people who all love and care for each other, know how to party and put all their trust in my ability to capture that. I love to work with new ideas, be inspired by my surroundings and adore shooting couples that want to do things a little differently.
