Boudoir Portrait Photography; Carla

3 December, 2017 (15:04)

Wedding and Portrait photographer in Leicester | Leicestershire

This week I wanted to write about Carla’s Boudoir portrait session. I am so glad I got to do this boudoir session for Carla, after what she had told me she suffers from on a daily basis I am so glad she was able to make it to this session. Carla like many is a working mum but she suffers from a few conditions, fibromyalgia being one of them as well as diverticulitis which is an awful condition and stops her doing normal things we all take for granted. With conditions like what Carla, unfortunately, suffers from it stops her from being able to plan and go out when she wants, as well as being more than 30-45mins away from home.

Gemma & Karl – Pre-Wedding Portrait Session

21 November, 2017 (16:11)

Pre-Wedding Portrait Session; Loughborough Park, Leicestershire

I’m so excited to be able to share with you the pre-wedding portrait session that I had the pleasure of doing with Gemma and Karl a few months ago. Gemma and Karl are two amazing people, a truly beautiful couple. I loved the way they both look at each other, pure love! I was over the moon when they both said yes to booking me to be their wedding photographer, I can’t wait, Gemma is obviously on a countdown, weeks are just flying by which I told them it would.

As soon as we booked the pre-wedding session, which was at the last minute as I was free the weekend and the weather was going to be beautiful, luckily they were both free for the portrait session. Booking it last minute made Gemma stress out a little, I got text messages and pictures asking if these clothes were ok to wear, thankfully we got there in the end. Until the session then they were both nervous – not that you would tell from the stunning images of them both! I worked my magic and put them both at ease straight the way. We talked about their wedding plans between whilst walking and between shots. It’s always nice to hear all the plans my couples have for their special day.

Rebecca & Chris’ Wedding – The Woodlands at Hothorpe Hall, Market Harborough

Rebecca and Chris’ Wedding at The Woodlands, Hothorpe Hall, Market Harborough

I first met up with Rebecca and Chris way over a year ago when they booked in for a consultation with me, to potentially book me to photograph their wedding day. The consultation was brilliantWhilstand Becky and Chris wanted to book me to be their professional wedding photographer for their special day; I was so excited and couldn’t wait for their wedding.

After some months passed by, we then booked in for their pre-wedding portrait session. It was such a lovely pre-wedding session! As soon as I saw them ready to start the session I couldn’t believe how much weight they had lost. They both looked fantastic. As a joke in the new year, they said yes to going to either weight watchers or slimming world with a friend, well they actually went and stuck at it. They both looked even more beautiful. The pre-wedding session was lovely, some gorgeous photos of them both together, so this made me even more excited for their big day. As always I tell my couples that the time flies when you’re planning a wedding, as soon as you start the time just goes so fast. They never believe me – none of my couples ever do … until the day and they say you were right it has just flown by! Didn’t I tell you??

It really is on the way!

12 September, 2017 (19:32)

You may have guessed already what is coming … Christmas! Christmas is on its way. The past couple of weeks when I have been to the supermarkets and other stores they have had Christmas items in. It’s mostly the tins of chocolates and biscuits, but the other day I took my friend to a warehouse place to look at wedding items and they had a whole Christmas section, a few Halloween items but not much in comparison to the Christmas isles.

Hello my lovelies,

I’m sure if you follow me on Facebook then you may already have seen this but as I have recently moved house, this has also meant having a brand new studio. Guess What?? …… It is complete! Wooop. I’m so excited to share it with you. My dad is super amazing, truly the best in the whole wide world. It was mostly my dad that did a lot of the work to make what was a garden shed into my beautiful studio, not only my dad though one of my older brothers did all the electrics for me. I can honestly say I am truly lucky to have such an amazing family.

Well, what can I say … Julie and Nigel booked in for their pre-wedding portrait photography session as their wedding day is approaching. When we booked in the session, we had a list of different locations that were possible and lovely places for portraits. In the end, we decided on Beacon Hill, Leicestershire, Leicester. Beacon Hill was lovely and quiet when we did the portraits which was great because we had a choice of the sections to Beacon Hill, we didn’t have to wait for people to walk past to take a shot – perfect! … continue reading

Outdoor Family Portrait Session; Loughborough Park

7 July, 2017 (13:00)

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of photographing Jill, Adrian and their two gorgeous grandsons. It has recently been both Jill and Adrian’s 70th birthday, so as a present for them their wonderful daughter Karen brought them a portrait family photography session to have with me. Karen currently lives in Ireland so she booked the session for them and was hoping to be able to make it to the viewing appointment. Jill got in touch so we booked in the portrait session and we booked in the viewing/ordering session appointment too, we worked it around Karen being back over, I didn’t want Karen to miss out on seeing the images.

Bosworth Hall Wedding: Claire & Peter

28 June, 2017 (18:36)

Claire and Peter’s wedding … what an AMAZING day! I loved every minute of it. I photograph weddings for the whole day, so bridal preparation to the first dance. As s I entered Claire’s home in Cosby, Leicester I knew it was going to be a brilliant day. All the girls were happy and bubbly, some were already being pampered with having their hair or make-up done. I got to hear some funny stories from them all which was so nice to be a part of. There was one point when one bridesmaid was having her make-up done and I was sat next to the bride, I was taking photos and the bride took out her phone to take a selfie of the two of us. A selfie with a gorgeous bride what more could you want, everyone was so easy to get on with it which made my job so much more enjoyable. My couples tend to book me a year or more in advance, over that time I get to know them very well which is how my couples are extremely relaxed and comfortable with me when it comes to actually photographing their big day. So lots excitement in the house getting ready, drinks, then the mother of the bride puts on a little spread for a little bit of lunch before the ceremony. It was yum! Just some sandwiches, crisps, cocktail sausages that sorta thing but it was still great. With time ticking away everyone was still feeling ok, once the bridesmaids got into their dresses we had a little fun with photos, the funny faces of the girls were just brilliant.

Professional Wedding Photographer vs Guests

10 June, 2017 (13:30)

I thought this week I would write about the comparison between booking a professional wedding photographer to capture your special day, to just leaving it to your wedding guests to hopefully get some nice and in focus images.

As a professional wedding photographer for six years now, I have seen and heard of some couples that didn’t have a professional wedding photographer. Couples would cut down the costs by not booking in with a professional and just have guests to take their images of their special day. Now I’m all for cutting costs for some things as I know just how much weddings can cost, but when it comes to your photographs from your wedding day – a day that you only tend to do once and once only the one thing I would want to be done right would be my pictures. I have been wanting to do a blog to show the comparison between booking a professional wedding photographer like myself to guests photos for so long but never had the chance until now.

Quorn Country Hotel Wedding; Nicola & Adam

19 May, 2017 (20:48)

Hey guys, this week its Nicola & Adam’s time to be on the blog :)

When Nicola & Adam booked me way over a year ago now to photograph their wedding day, I was completely over the moon. It was over a year to wait until the big day, but I knew that it’d soon come around. Most of my bride and grooms book me to photograph their wedding day at least a year in advance, I always tell them at the time it will soon come around. None of them actually believe me until our final meeting which is usually a month before, then they tell me that i’m right it’s soon come around.
