MISS L : PERTH BRIDAL BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY

13 Jul 2017            Jessica Ratty


The most amazing compliment a client can give, is recommending their friends and family to me after an amazing experience at their own Boudoir sessions. That is exactly how the seriously stunning Miss L found us! 
Miss L was not only gorgeous but just so sweet and so much fun to photograph! Her session was a surprise for her Groom to be on the morning of their wedding day. She had the most amazing outfits, just perfect for a Boudoir Session. 
I have been so excited to share Miss L's session, it is one of my absolute favourites!

29 Jun 2017            Jessica Ratty


Get ready for the absolute drop dead GORGEOUS Miss S's Bridal Boudoir Session. Miss S started her session with some more relaxed lounging images, which I absolutely love! Miss S brought along a little sign to hold in one of her images, which made the perfect ending to her "For Your Eyes Only Album" that she surprised her Groom to be with on the morning of their wedding!

The incredible Ash owns Fusion Biz Babes and runs incredible networking events for Perth business women.

ALANA & DARREN : A PEEL MANOR WEDDING

30 Mar 2017            Jessica Ratty



The sweetest, most loving and adorable couples of all time! The stunning Alana and Darren live in the UK but Alana is originally from Perth. So their wedding day was at the gorgeous and ever so romantic Peel Manor, just south of Perth. 

On the morning of the wedding, we woke up to very very dark clouds and insanely heavy rain! The terrible weather continued all morning and the ceremony was almost changed to inside but about 10 minutes before the ceremony was scheduled to begin, the rain stopped and the decision was made to continue with the ceremony outside. As Alana walked down the aisle and reached Darren, the Sun began to peak through the clouds and shine. It was amazing!

Not long after the ceremony, the dark clouds returned and so did the rain. But they always make for the most romantic and beautiful photographs!

So many Brides become so stressed and worried when rain or stormy weather is forecast for their wedding day. But there is honestly nothing to worry about, as long as you have a backup plan for your ceremony (if it is outside), then the rest of the day can be worked around the weather or why not even make the most of those stormy clouds in the sky?


So if rain is forecast for your wedding day or you wake up on the morning of your wedding to a grey sky, don't be worried... Be excited that you will be able to create some beautiful and romantic images, with gorgeous dramatic skies in the background!

E-SESSIONS : 7 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE ONE

30 Jun 2016            Jessica Ratty


Often when a couple get engaged and begin to plan their dream wedding day, it is totally normal for them to be in whole new territory and being confused with the planning and traditions. While most couples know what an E-session (engagement session or Pre-wedding portrait session) is, we do quite often get couples asking what they are, or why they should have one. 

I absolutely adore E-sessions and the beautiful images that are captured during them! There are so many great reasons to have an E-session before your wedding day.

1) YOU GET USE TO BEING IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA

Let's be honest, most of us are not 100% comfortable with being in front of the camera, we feel awkward and unsure of what to do or worried about how we will look. For many couples they have never been photographed professionally or had to pose, so at first it can feel a little awkward or scary. But that is what your E-session is for! Most couples (especially the Grooms) feel way out of their comfort zone the first time they are in front of the camera. But we will start with some super easy and natural poses or setups and show you a little teaser so you know how amazing you look! As the shoot progresses you will begin to relax even more and by the end of it, it will all feel completely natural to you. Then on the wedding day, you don't have to be worried or nervous about having photos taken, or unsure of how to stand or how you look. 

So many times we have photographed a couple who before their E-session have said "how awkward they are in front of the camera and how they are not photogenic" etc etc, then when their E-session comes around they are quite nervous and stiff at the beginning and feel really awkward, but by the end of it they are 100% more comfortable and relaxed while being photographed and the correct way to stand (which of course I will show you how to stand) comes naturally. Then on their wedding day, even if it is a few months after, they automatically remember the way to stand and it all just comes back to them and it is even more natural. It is so important to be relaxed in front of the camera, if you are nervous or tense, you will definitely see it in your images.

2) YOU GET TO KNOW YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

Your photographer is going to be with you for pretty much your entire wedding day! From the morning when you are getting ready until the reception. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and you want to ensure that you feel completely comfortable and at ease with the people who are sharing it with you. Especially the person with possibly the most important job on the day (capturing all of the very precious moments and memories that happen) because how you feel around them, will definitely come across in your images. If you don't really know your photographer and they turn up on your wedding day to photograph you and you feel awkward or nervous around them, it will be very clear in your images that you weren't completely relaxed. 


It also means that they can get to know you both and what you are like together. This will help them photograph you in the best possible way and really capture your relationship and love.

3) YOU CAN HAVE IT AT A LOCATION THAT IS SPECIAL TO YOU

E-sessions are totally personal and different for each couple, so you can personalise it to suit you and your style. Some couples like to choose a location where they met, or that is significant to them or their relationship. 

Or another popular option is to have a themed session to suit something that you love or your style. Why not bring along cute props that add just an extra touch of sweetness to your images! Some ideas are a little picnic setup for some seriously adorable and romantic images, Old Hollywood Glamour, vintage pushbikes, really anything you can think of! If you love the water, why not do something really different and get in the water, for some extra romantic and stunning images!

4) YOU CAN REALLY TEST OUT YOUR HAIR AND MAKE-UP TRIAL

Many Brides are still not sure about how to have their hair and make-up on their wedding day and often are worried about how it will look in their photos. Make-up always needs to be done darker and slightly more dramatic when it is going to be photographed, as it will always appear lighter in camera, which makes some Brides nervous, as they aren't use to this. Why not book your hair and make-up trial on the same day as your E-session and that way you can see how it lasts throughout the day, how it looks it natural sunlight and more importantly, how it is looks on a professional camera. You will see it from all angles in your images and will definitely help you decide if it is the perfect style for the day!

5) YOU CAN USE THE IMAGES FOR SO MANY THINGS

The most popular way our clients like to use their Engagement images is to create a beautiful signature album, which is filled with their favourite E-session images with plenty of white space around them. They then have these albums at their reception for their guests not only to look at, but to sign and write their special messages and well wishes. They make the perfect moment from your wedding day and you can always look back on it, in years to come. 

Or many clients like to have them printed and framed to hang on their walls in their home. Of course you will have beautiful wedding images hanging up, but it is also nice to have couples portraits on display that aren't all from the wedding day.

Another popular thing to do is have some printed and give them to parents as gifts to say thank you for their help during the wedding planning process.

Of course you can also use them for so many things for the wedding day, from Save The Dates, to wedding invitations, custom wine bottle labels or bonbonnieres. 

The options really are endless.

6) CELEBRATE AND CAPTURE BEING ENGAGED

Being engaged is such an exciting and happy time and always filled with so much love! Why not celebrate this incredible chapter in your life, where you are so happy and planning not only your dream wedding day but your dream life together! 

I know that planning a wedding can be a stressful and insanely busy time in your life, but why not take a few hours out from the crazy wedding planning and just let your hair down, have some fun and get loved up with your fiancé? It will add some fun to this time in your life and help you to remember what your wedding is really about - you, your fiancé and your love for each other. 

On the wedding day, of course it is all about the Bride and Groom, but it is also a celebration of your entire lives coming together, so naturally it is also about all of your family and close friends. So the majority of your images from the wedding day will be with all of those very special people in your lives. An E-session is just about the two of you together. 

I promise by the end of your E-session, you would have spent the time cuddling, kissing, holding hands, just being sweet and romantic with each other, that you will leave feeling all loved up and remembering exactly why you are getting married. The stress of wedding planning will all fade away.
