Winter/Autumn Shoots - What you need to know

It's that time of the year again... The leaves are turning various beautiful shades of yellow, orange and red, the days are getting shorter and colder, Pumpkin Spiced Latte is a thing again and we are wearing more layers again.

For exactly those reasons I love autumn, it's my favourite season. The air smells different, cleaner and it's the perfect time to curl up with a book and a hot chocolate OR do an autumn or winter inspired shoot.

Here are some useful things to know, when you book your shoot:

1. Bring some layers. A outfit change doesn't to be a complete change from head to toe. Bring different sweaters, tops, jackets or simple various scarfs and hats.

2. Wear some warm and comfy shoes. Apart from being colder it can also be quite slippery during autumn and winter. Bring boots or trainers, instead of high heels, that will just get dirty or stuck in the ground. Wellies can also be a nice addition to your outfit.

3. Go with a natural/earthy colour palette instead of bright summer or spring colours. Lot's of brown, orange/mustard, dark reds, greys and cream colours coupled with blue or black jeans work well. Also a nice casual dress with some thick tights is a lovely look. I've created a mood board for autumn shoots, which will give you an idea for clothing, colours and make-up.

4. Include some props & accessories. Think leather boots or wellies, bobble hats, a coffee mug, an umbrella, a bag, even some leaves - just to give you an idea.

5. Pack the necessities. It can get quite chilly in autumn/winter, so you may want to bring some necessities with you. For example lip balm, moisturizer, warm packs for your hands, tissues, and of course warm apparel. Maybe even a thermos with some nice hot chocolate or tea. 

If this post made you want to do a super awesome autumn/winter photo shoot you can check out the available packages and book your shoot here.

Looking forward to get creative with you!

Take care. x

Blogger Shoot with In High Fashion Laune | Notting Hill

I recently met Linh from In High Fashion Laune, who is a German blogger currently working in London for a few months. We went to Notting Hill for our first shoot and had some pretty awesome weather, making use of the beautiful mews and colourful houses in the area.

Blogger Shoot with Makes It Simple | Whitehall

Another great shoot with Monika from Makes It Simple. This time we met up in Whitehall near Trafalgar Square, the buildings around there look very parisian, so perfect for Monika's style.

Wedding Photography | Hannah & Mike | Mayfair

A few months ago I was privileged to capture Hannah & Mike's wedding day. It was a intimate ceremony with their closest family and friends at the Mayfair Library with the reception taking place at Mayfair Mews.

Hannah & Mike have been together for 7 years. They met in 2010 when Hannah, who is American, was studying abroad in the UK in 2010. They have had a long distance relationship for a portion of their relationship while both of them were pursuing degrees and careers. During the span of their relationship they lived in the states as well as Australia and are now back in the UK.

In case you're confused about seeing 2 grooms, Mike has twin brother - Mark, who was wearing almost the same suit apart from a different coloured tie on the day.
