The Blog

Join me every month while I dive into sessions, show examples of my work in more detail and give advice to other aspiring boudoir photographers on my blog.  What can you hope to achieve reading this blog? 

An inside look into creative sessions

Each month I try to experiment with at least one session, these are discounted sessions for clients who are happy to share images and if you'd like to be considered for a creative session please do subscribe for updates. These creative sessions usually create amazingly different photographs unlike most boudoir photographers in the UK and I am always striving for a uniqueness that aligns with my clients personality and individuality. 

More in-depth full sessions 

I also show more in-depth shoots from parties, cake smashes and engagements among other on location and studio portrait sessions for those wishing to see a more in depth look at how their shoots may look and what I can achieve. 

Studio Boundaries

The blog is also where you may wish to read my studio boundaries for Boudoir sessions, these boundaries differ from studio to studio and I want to be upfront about these before you enquire incase you are looking to create images with a partner or video footage etc. 

Some tips and tricks I've picked up 

I love everything about photography, I definitely identify as a bit of a photography nerd! As I buy new kit and experiment I hope to pass on some of the lessons I learn to other photography nerds! 

6 Ways To Plan For Rain On Your Wedding Day

I have been a bride and I've worked for so many brides who just like me were checking the weather every hour of every day 10 days before their wedding hoping for the best possible weather. I got married in Santorini where it hardly ever rains and I was still worried about it! You'll hear a lot of people say that at least in some part of the day it will stop raining and there are, of course, exceptions to that and there will be days when it does rain all day.

Here are 6 ways you can feel better about the rain on your wedding day.

Take your wedding photos inside instead

There are beautiful photos to be taken indoors and I am sure that the location that you have chosen will have some beautiful corners to take some epic wedding photos. Here's one I took indoors. Use windows for natural light, staircases and lobbies are a great choice for luxury feeling images.

Another option I have utilised before is taking photos inside the porch or door frame of your wedding venue. This allows you to get that natural light look while staying dry on a wet rainy day. Check out your wedding venue as you might find they already have outside spaces with shade set up for this exact scenario.

Buy a large, clear umbrella or ask if your photographer has one

Find a photographer with experience with off camera flash

Look at incredible inspiration for a rainy wedding day

Consider your hair and make up choices

Let a bridesmaid or groomsmen or a special guest know that you need help carrying a dress

Good news if it does rain on your wedding day!

Did you know that rain on your wedding day is supposed to be good luck? Tying the knot is an old sailing term and wet knots are stronger than dry ones and therefore it is deemed through tradition that a Wedding on a wet day is likely to cause a longer lasting stronger marriage.

Rain does not have to spoil your shoot day, whether it is an engagement shoot or your wedding day. I am fully prepared to shoot in the rain with waterproof equipment, umbrellas and lots of skills to bring that gorgeous backlit rainy shot that you've been dreaming of on Pinterest if you do want to do that for your wedding, please do get in touch by reaching out to me via my contact form which I will link here.

Zoe & James' Engagement Shoot In The Rain

Zoe & James were one of the couples that took advantage of my January free engagement shoot offer, we chose a location near to their house, a beautiful field with far reaching views. Unfortunately on the day of their shoot while it was gorgeous, beautiful son in the afternoon, about 10 minutes before we were due to start the heavens opened and rain was pouring down. The skies went grey. The view was no longer visible, and while I offered to reschedule the sheets or to change locations. Zoe and James, being the carefree, loving and fun couple they are decided to embrace the rain and go for it, they threw on their big black puffy coats, and we had loads of fun getting to know each other in this field in Shinfield.
