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! 

Choosing a photographer for your post wedding photoshoot in Central London.


If you're looking for a place to take your engagement photos, pre-or post wedding photos or even looking for a place to elope, then central London is one of the most inspiring places in the world with iconic landmarks and epic views to boot.


Choosing a photographer for such an important photoshoot is undoubtedly a big decision but it shouldn't be hard, you only need to consider three main points:

  • Style & Approach

  • Packages & Price

  • Personality & Compatibility


My personal approach is natural, storytelling and documentary style, I'll plan a beautiful day for you both and then capture all the memories you make along the way leading to truly authentic images and memories for you both. To learn more about me and my approach and packages please do get in touch with me through my contact me page here.


You can skip to the gallery for this shoot here.


''What backdrops are there in London?''

Central London also offers great variety and romantic settings with international significance such as Big Ben, the London Eye, Houses of Parliament, Postboxes, London buses, and of course the iconic London phone box. And just a short walk from Waterloo you will find Covent Garden, St James Park, The Tate Modern and iconic bridges like London Bridge.


And then in only half an hour. You can walk to Saint Pauls. Saint Pauls is the backdrop for this gorgeous photo shoot taken in early spring, 2024. Before arriving in London, I suggest checking Google Maps to look at the length of time it takes to walk between locations. Also making a list of landmarks that you wish to feature in your photos. Alternatively if you are looking to hire a local photographer you'll find that your photographer already has suggested routes and paths planned for photo shoots in order to get the best out of London for your photoshoot.


London offers incredible diversity in locations for your pre or post wedding photoshoot and while in this gallery you can see clean stone and beautiful pastel colours. London also offers historic landmarks such as the globe and urban environments with artistic, graffiti skate parks and old dockyards. Whatever aesthetic you wish to achieve in your photo shoot, London has the backdrop for you.

''What is the best season for my post wedding or engagement shoot in London?''

London is undoubtedly grey and rainy at times, but there are beautiful sights and gorgeous photos to be taken in every season of the year. The photos in this gallery were taken in early spring where the cherry blossoms around Saint Pauls were blossoming and daisies had appeared in blankets across the fields of the parks, however, during summer you will find gorgeous, golden hour light ricochets off buildings, beautiful floral arrangements and decor outside shops and hotels and clean white stone in beautiful high-end villages around London including Notting Hill, where the wisteria is famous in Bedford Gardens.

"What Should I Consider When Choosing a Photographer for My Post-Wedding or Engagement Shoot in London?”

When choosing a photographer for your post wedding shoot in London you should consider photographers who already have shot in London and that may have experience with planning roots and getting the best out of the location photographers who are local to London can also recommend places to eat drink, or even have a reception if you're planning to have a micro wedding or elopement in London. I am a sorry based photographer with experience shooting in London and the surrounding areas and can recommend locations dependent on the time of year season and the aesthetic you are aiming for for your wedding photography.


When choosing a photographer for any shoot, you should also consider style and approach, including whether or not you wish photos to be candid, documentary, style, or staged and posed different photographers, have different editing styles that you may wish to consider such as if you were looking for a darker grungier look, or maybe a light and or a even a film focus.


You may also wish to consider photographers who have the appropriate insurance back up equipment and experience given that London, like any city has its own set of rules and regulations around professional photo shoots in public areas.


If you were planning your post or pre-wedding photoshoot in London from overseas, do get in contact with me and I am happy to help with recommendations for accommodation, travel, transport and anything else you wish to do. Trips to London can be highly personalised with so many activities, suiting all manner of personalities and requirements, such as historical tours, entertainment, loads for foodies and many renowned museums.

"What Are Some Tips for Navigating Crowds and Traffic During a Post-Wedding Photoshoot in Central London?”


During spring and summer, London can be incredibly busy. A local photographer will be able to navigate crowds in high traffic areas or suggest timings where crowds may be reduced. For example early morning to around 10 am.


Many of the iconic landmarks are relatively quiet on weekdays and there are hidden corners of London, including a great number of green spaces where crowds are minimal, but photographs can still be equally as iconic and epic.


You may also wish to source a photographer for your post or pre-wedding photo shoot that has experience in removing people from the background of photos. Here is an example of a photograph where I have removed people at a busy time of day.

"Can You Recommend Indoor Locations for Post-Wedding Photoshoots in Case of Bad Weather in London?”


There are many indoor locations in London that allow photographers to take photos with permission: on occasion fees may be applicable. I always recommend Wedding brokerage websites to navigate indoor locations for your wedding, elopement or photo shoot, such as Hitched or Bride book, or if you're looking for a location to support just the two of you and have something specific in mind, please do reach out as I have many suggestions and recommendations for locations for smaller shoots and can help plan and navigate the shoot on your behalf.

"How Far in Advance Should I Book My Post-Wedding Photoshoot in London Central?"


I'm looking to book your elopement or micro wedding in London you should aim to plan this as far in advance as possible as wedding photographers tend to be fully booked around 12 months in advance. If you are looking for a specific photographer to assist you I recommend reaching out to them about availability dates as soon as possible.


If you are coming to London on your honeymoon or after your wedding and want to plan a photoshoot, you could reach out to a photographer who can help you plan the photo shoot with your season and aesthetic in mind.
