I had a blast taking the role of official photographer at The Truly Marvellous Wedding Fair a few weeks back. Part of this wedding extravaganza was a stunning fashion show which showcased an awesome selection of pieces from Gentleman by Conduct, Moss Bros & The Bridal Lounge .
I had such a blast in July of this year working with some of my wedding vendor friends on a fantastic woodland themed wedding styled shoot in the heart of Suffolk at the gorgeous Kenton Hall Estate wedding venue. Kenton Hall is a fantastic new venue to the area that boasts jaw-dropping grounds, a fabulous marquee space and some of the most impressive Glamping facilities in the region, if not nationwide. It was here that a collective of like-minded vendors got together to create an enchanting woodland themed shoot, to showcase some of the amazing talent we have here in the region. I am excited to share some of the images I captured on the day, alongside principal photographer Nick Illot.

I must admit I'm very excited about shooting the wedding next month for Lisa & Daryl. I met up with them last Saturday for the first time since they initially booked me way back last year and it was great to catch up with them again. It seems like they're pretty much there with their preparations for the big day which will be held at All Manor of Events, in Henley, UK and it all sounds like it's going to be an awesome day. The guys were fantastic to work with as we headed down to the waterfront in Ipswich and were naturals in front of the camera - Aren't they just an amazing looking couple?
Check out some of the images from the session below. If you're looking for a modern, fun approach for your wedding photography, why not get in touch? it would be great to hear from you.
Last weekend saw me travel down to London to meet Chris & Simone for their engagement shoot. The guys are getting married at Lavenham Church in Suffolk next month and so it was great to catch up with them again to find out how all the preparations were going.
They really are a fantastic couple and throughout the session, it was so obvious that they were really made for each other and were very relaxed in front of the camera. The guys decided to take me around Chelsea, ending up at the Saatchi Gallery where they love to spend time together. Unfortunately the weather wasn't on our side that day, but we didn't let that stop us, making good use of the surrounding areas of the gallery grounds.
It really was a pleasure spending the day with you guys, I'm so looking forward to your amazing wedding next month.
Here are some images captured during our session, enjoy!
Every now and then, I’ll be hand-picking some of my most awesome friends in the business (who come 100% recommended) and asking them to give you glimpse into what they do and more importantly offering you guys some really helpful and interesting information which will no doubt be so useful.
I’m really excited today to introduce you to my friend Tracey Hill of of Simply Boudoir Photography. Tracey is an awesome boudoir photographer, based in Essex, UK,
I have followed Tracey's work for quite a while and I absolutely love the elegance of her work. This is exquisitely complimented with soft colour tones and beautiful lighting that makes for sexy, yet tasteful photography. She certainly is the first choice for this kind of Art in the area and I'm sure that she'll explode in 2011.
So many women have the wrong impression of boudoir photography.
Simply Boudoir Photography is about celebrating who you are at your most sexiest. It is tasteful, intimate and artistic with beautiful lighting.
I can hear you say now "but i'm plus size, I have stretch marks, I have spots, so I cannot do it", STOP RIGHT THERE!
All women have hang ups, none of us are perfect that is why we admire all those perfect sized, air brushed women in the magazines with their beautiful figures (who also by the way have hang-ups because they are not perfect either).
With Simply Boudoir I will guide you through poses which are selected individually for your body shape and size to look and make you feel your best. We'll have lots of fun as I particularly like the sessions to be happy and relaxed and I will give you lots of great tips throughout on what to wear for the session so you look and feel great. And whats more you will have a lasting reminder to treasure for years to come.
All my images are fully edited and photographed exclusively by me. A make up and hair stylist is also available on request.
Lots of women choose to invest in a boudoir session for their loved one as a wedding present, gift or even for themselves and find afterwards that it was one of the most rewarding things they have ever done for their own self confidence, leaving them feeling more confident and sexier than ever.
Without exception, the women who have had a session with me say they love their images and always go away saying how fun and liberating it was.
My goal is to show you just how beautiful and sensual you are.
If you would like to know more about my services or to book a session, please contact me via my website. I look forward to working with you x
