Personal Branding with Natasha Jay Photography

November 8, 2021 | Photography

If you’re a small business, in any industry, your customers are going to want to see the face behind the brand. You need an ‘about’ page on your website, you need social media content and you may choose to include a photo of yourself on printed marketing material… And quite frankly an iPhone photo taken by your sister doesn’t quite cut it. You need a professional to take the photos. A professional photographer knows the backdrops that will work well, where to shoot in terms of light (and what time of day) and they’ll be able to put you at…

Bridal FaceTime Shoot with Tim Dunk

If Covid affected your business, how did you handle it? Did you cry? Did you moan? Or did you engage your creative brain and think of ways to pivot/thrive? Until last year Leeds-based Tim Dunk was best known for his creative, alternative wedding photography. When it all hit the fan last year Tim came up with FaceTime photo shoots as a Covid-secure idea to get creative, lift people’s spirits and raise money for a food bank charity. I took part in a shoot with Tim right at the beginning of the first lockdown. I remember how out-of-sorts I was feeling…

It had to be someone with a suitable dress and accessories, and someone…

Today we hand over to Hampshire-based wedding photographer Jason Williams for his advice when it comes to planning a micro wedding… Without trying to state the obvious, Covid has thrown more than a spanner or two into the wedding works. What we used to take for granted has been taken away from us, and that thing we humans crave most – human closeness – is now almost a long forgotten dream. If you were to list things which describe a ‘wedding’, human closeness would be on that list. The days of 100+ people all gathering to celebrate are well and…

Over to Adele, AKA Joli Reve, to tell you all about it… We are fortunate enough to live in a land rich with ancient buildings, with their own soul. Our vision is always modern, folk, boho and free-spirited… The venue was a wonderful castle located in the green heart of Italy, its elegant cellar and native vineyard…

2020 Roundup

December 23, 2020 | Photography, Updates from HQ

It’s my birthday!!!!!! This time last year I was celebrating turning 40 with my nearest and dearest. I’m so glad I threw a party, it just goes to show you never know what’s around the corner. Today I’m going for a walk with a pal and hanging out with my support bubble AKA my sister’s family.

The Benefits of Engagement Shoots

If you’re looking at wedding photography have you considered booking an engagement shoot too?
