Prom Magazine

January 26th, 2012

A few months back you may remember that I did a Prom shoot with Drama Queen and Catherine Hughes of Ivy Clara Make-Up and Styling.

Well, this years PROM Magazine is finally in the shops! It’s an amazing source of inspiration if you’ve got your prom coming up this year, jam packed with information and pretty things to buy!

…some of the images from the shoot have been featured in the magazine ——->

….along with a full page glossy advert! Ooooooh!!! 🙂

Don’t forget that after your prom, a fashion shoot in your prom dress is a must have!

Prom fashion shoot

January 11th, 2012

As I looked along the rack of dresses, I wanted to pore over each and every one of them.

I’d just returned some wedding dresses to Charlotte Balbier from a previous shoot, (you can see Part I and Part II here) and as I received a tour of the new premises, I came face to face with the Prom dresses.

“Let me know if you need any” said Lucy “You can borrow them anytime you want”.

Oooooh interesting!!

Fast forward about a month and I found myself emailing Lucy with a list of dresses off the Drama Queen FB page.

The shoot took place at The Midland Hotel in Manchester, so I Read more »

Vintage styled bridal shoot…..Part I

November 15th, 2011

I’ve done many shoots, where at the end of the day, I’ve gone home and said to Ian ‘That was the best shoot….EVER’! …..until the next shoot that it is. I’m pretty sure nearly every other photographer does the same thing.

But sometimes, certain shoots just Read more »

You owe it to your dress!!

August 31st, 2011

When I got married, I tried on at least 30 wedding dresses before I found ‘the one’. But once I found it, I fell in love with it. Waiting the 6 months until I could actually wear it was a killer! But when the day arrived and I finally got to wear my dress, I fell in love with it all over again…..

Remember how you felt when you first tried on your wedding dress? Remember the excitement as you slipped into your dress on your wedding day and then walked down the aisle?

Getting married is an amazing and overwhelming experience; a day filled with joy and laughter. As a bride, you want to look your best. You get your hair and make-up done, buy an amazing dress and look absolutely gorgeous. But, after the big day, Read more »

Bridal shoot & “How to” make-up guide…..

June 29th, 2011

Regular readers of my blog will know that I was recently involved in a “How to” guide for bridal make-up, which is a current weekly feature on Boho Weddings and Events. Catherine Hughes of Ivy Clara did the make-up guide and Alex Outhwaite was Catherine’s lovely model for the day……..

Check out week’s one and two on how you can go from this…….to this…….over on Boho now…..

Once the guide was complete and Alex looked radiant with her freshly applied bridal make-up, we headed over to Clifton Country Park to do a bridal shoot.

Alex looked stunning and it was lovely Read more »

Inside on a rainy day

June 21st, 2011

I love working with natural light and being outside on location, but sometimes it’s good to experiment and do something different. So last month when a summer shoot I was part of got cancelled due to the ‘not so summery’ weather; myself, model Janina Maibaum and make-up artist Catherine Hughes decided we should do just that…….head inside and do something different!

Janina wanted to create a look using brightly coloured clothes & make-up against a white background.

So, we all piled into Janina’s flat, cleared everything out of the way, Read more »

Bridal make-up {how to guide}

June 17th, 2011

This is a little sneaky peek of a shoot I did a couple of weeks back. Catherine Hughes of Ivy Clara Make-up & Styling was asked to do a feature for Boho Weddings and Events on how to do bridal make-up. I was pretty excited when Catherine asked me to do the photography for it.

More images and full blog to come in the next few weeks, but for now, head on over to Boho Weddings and Events and see week 1 of how you can go from this……

To this….!

I also wanted to share this image of model Alex Outhwaite hastily eating a doughnut before she had her lipstick done!

I’m looking forward to working with you both again soon.
