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! 

Make An Impact: Beautiful Visual Moments For A Memorable Wedding

Why Creating an Immersive Experience At Your Wedding Matters

Your wedding day is more than just a celebration; it's a reflection of your love story and a once-in-a-lifetime event. By crafting an immersive experience, you transform your wedding into a magical journey that not only captivates your guests but also leaves a lasting memory for you both and isn't that the most important thing? From visually stunning spectacles to incredible tastes and perfectly planned music and sound, every element contributes to the overall experience of your wedding, making your special day truly unforgettable. Embracing the concept of immersion ensures that every moment is infused with meaning, emotion, and magic.

Today I wanted to talk about the Visual Experience on Your Wedding Day.

Choosing an incredible venue might be the obvious first choice for a visual experience at your wedding but there are certainly ways to create moments of beauty and awe with or without a stunning venue.


Fireworks

  • Celebratory fireworks have a rich history dating back centuries, originating in ancient China where they were used to ward off evil spirits and celebrate auspicious occasions.

  • Fireworks provide a moment that stands out, I had ground fireworks for my first dance and loved them. The excitement leading up to the display, followed by the spectacle itself not only creates a fantastic photo opportunity but a moment that's literally frozen in my memory.

  • Having fireworks in a UK wedding comes with its own unique challenge, if this is something that’s important to you I suggest looking for a venue with the capability and discussing this with them as they'll have the experience to provide guidance.


Smoke Bombs

  • Possibly the biggest growing trend of the past few years, coloured smoke bombs. They can be used in small or large quantities to create quite the moment.

While coloured smoke bombs can add a visually striking element to weddings, it's essential to consider their potential hazards, including the risk of staining clothing and surroundings.

Traditional Confetti Choices

This is a moment that most couples love, and so do I! Choose soft slow falling confetti for incredible photos or real dried blossoms for a sustainable pretty detail that doesn't cost the earth. But whatever you choose remember to buy LOADS! The more confetti the better for wedding photos.


As a professional wedding photographer I would strongly recommend large disk confetti, it falls slowly, shows up in images and looks gorgeous. Plus it's fun to show and you can get biodegradable types.

A few extra bonus tips for confetti shots:

  • Your guests should stand relatively close to you, just over an arms length away

  • Walk slowly, look at each other, at your guests and stop half way for a kiss

  • Confetti should be thrown in the air over your head not in your face

  • Naughty bridal party to stand at the back, shenanigans are likely but let's get the romance out of the way first

  • Ask a guest to throw confetti over the top of the camera lens for extra 'oomph' in your photos

10 Alternative Confetti Ideas For Your Wedding Day

  • Holi coloured powder (if you don't mind being multi coloured for the rest of the day!)

  • Rice- this is a traditional choice but beware of rain as rice can be slippery when wet

  • Getting married in autumn? Use dried leaves!

  • Streamers

  • Smoke cannons held by guests

  • Party Poppers

  • Money gun

  • Confetti canons

  • Sparklers

  • Bubbles

Live wedding performers

  • This is a big topic right?! I’ll start with the performers that I’d consider and maybe this will be a bigger blog another day.

  • A live artist, one of the ones that paints little watercolours of guests during the day or someone who paints the couple, love them love them all. Such a talking point for guests, a perfect personal keepsake and I love the art

  • Magicians - I went to a wedding where the magician worked the tables during the meal and it was a hoot, a sort of subtle team building for the table and totally memorable

  • Singers that surprise everyone, I’ve seen all those clips of bar staff falling over and then they pop up with a microphone, technically I suppose this is an audio visual type of immersion but I think they look fun so wanted to include them!

Wedding guests dress coordination

  • I’m sure we’ve all seen all white weddings, or black tie events. Choosing a colour scheme or trend might be a really good way of creating a visual spectacle that will translate beautifully in pictures and in your memories.
