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!

An Intimate Twixmas Winter Wedding For Simon & Naomi

Simon and Naomi reached out to me to cover an intimate afternoon wedding at The Lismoyne Hotel in Fleet, Hampshire at the magical time of 'Twix-mas' in 2023. Simon and Naomi wanted a Christmas wedding that combined their wedding with the joy of spending time with loved ones at Christmas and had incredibly thoughtful touches throughout the day like personalised gifts for each guest to open (just like Christmas!) and a Christmas Dinner as their wedding breakfast.

I attended to cover the bridal prep, ceremony and the initial reception and left them to enjoy a lovely dinner at The Oatsheaf Pub in Fleet.

Bridal Prep

Arguably one of my favourite parts of a wedding day- bridal prep is full of laughter, tension, love and fun and every bride has a different morning. Naomi was full of support from her two sons, long term hairdresser and topped off with her visit from her loving parents.

Naomi wore borrowed earrings that belonged to her Grandma, a gorgeous classic satin dress with an embellished panel and low v back from Tilly Mint in Fleet and shoes she found for a steal online.

An Intimate Wedding Ceremony

The conservatory at The Lismoyne Hotel was a lovely small and intimate space that was made so much more romantic with Naomi & Simon's own vows.

Did you know getting married in the rain is traditionally seen to be good luck? A wet knot is extremely hard to untie – hence a marriage is harder to untie.

Rain forced their confetti walk indoors but this didn't stop it being beautiful or a lot of fun!

The Wedding Details

Is it really a wedding without a giant soft giraffe? Naomi and Simon's kids brought a giraffe to the festivities with a tie and if you look closely you can see that the giraffe was at the front of the ceremony.

The couple used a local florist and opted for a donut stand for guests and a Polaroid guest book.

A newly married couple!

Congratulations Mrs & Mrs Gooch!
