Jamie & Shannan – Pre-Wedding Photography

We had the best weather, a great location and lots of fun.  Jamie & Shannan met with me for their pre-wedding photography shoot at Porchester Castle on the South Coast.  The sun was shining making the water twinkle and giving us all that lovely warm summer feeling.  Absolutely beautiful.  These two lovely people are getting married in June at Catherington Church, one of the prettiest churches I’ve had the pleasure of visiting.

Preparing to get married!

There is so much help out there on the web, wedding fayres, magazines and not to mention recommendations from your friends and family that it can be a tad overwhelming which is why I wanted to put in my two pennies worth and see if I can help at all?  Aside from the usual bookings to be made like the stunning venue, a fabulous professional photographer (of course!!), and florist etc you might also like to think about other important things that will help your day go smoothly.  There is a list of Trusted Suppliers on my website if you wanted to take a peek.  Below are just a few to get you started.

Stephs’ weight-loss story…

After reading her news on the Tadley (near Reading, Berkshire), Slimming World Facebook page that she had reached her 8 stone target, I naturally wanted to know how she did it, and what was her story.  I contacted Steph, we met for a cuppa and her story started to unfold.  All I can say is I was simply amazed at the sheer determination and motivation this young woman has to reach her goal.  I couldn’t resist telling her story and showing you her new beautiful figure through Photography.  I hope you will enjoy the read.

Boudoir Photography Competition Winner

This Boudoir Photography shoot with Lady Kay was quite extraordinary, in a good way of course.  Kay was delighted to hear she was my Boudoir Photography Competition Winner posted on Facebook a few weeks ago by simply ‘Liking’ my page, sharing and giving me some feedback, so simple.  Kay told me in her own words that the shoot was a wonderful experience, lots of fun and she ‘loves loves loves’ her pictures.  It gave me immense pleasure to know that Kay felt comfortable and elegant in front of my camera.  This shoot was quite a confidence boost for both of us 🙂

Boudoir or not to Boudoir?

What are your thoughts on Boudoir? Do you think it’s too risqué or daring? Maybe you feel it’s too embarrassing and always for someone else as you don’t like the way you look?  If I could think of a different name for this style of photography I would, sometimes I think that it conjures up completely the wrong impression, but lets see shall we?

Vintage style florist….

Flowers are fun…….was one of the first things I saw when I walked into the florist this weekend.  Vibrant colours, heavily scented air from all the blooms and so many different textures but the biggest thing that hit me was the way the shop made me feel which was happy.

Beautiful Boudoir Shoot …

Wow, what an amazing morning spent with the beautiful lady Jess x

Whilst I was visiting the stunning countryside of Cumbria last month, Jess and I arranged to meet at The Royal Hotel, Kirkby-Lonsdale.  This hotel is definitely worth a visit, not only is the food totally amazing but the decoration is absolutely gorgeous and very different and so perfect for Jess’s styled Boudoir shoot.  We carefully chose Room 4 for its large sash windows allowing the room to be drenched in the morning sun, it has a lovely chaise longue to compliment the shoot and sumptuous floor to ceiling silk curtains.  All in all my kind of hotel – lush!

Jess had her hair and makeup styled in the morning before the shoot by her talented sister and then we got cracking with the shoot.  The images we captured together were nothing short of gorgeous.  Below are a few I can share with you.

Boudoir Photography is all about making you feel beautiful and restoring some confidence in yourself that may have gone missing along the way.  If you really like what you see and would like to plan your own elegant Boudoir shoot why not get in touch with me at sallyanne@photographybysallyanne.com or give me a call on 07762951865.  I would really like to hear from you and have the opportunity of making you feel like you again xx
