Say I Do to Bold Bridal Boudoir

Say I Do to Bold Bridal Boudoir

If you’ve been following us for a while you will know that we have broken ground with our unique boudoir photography, creating a style that is the perfect combination of timeless elegance and playful seduction. Our boudoir sessions are not overtly sexual, tacky or titillating, they are a representation of you, your body and your story, told through a celebration of femininity.

Clients were coming to us more and more for a boudoir shoot as a pre-wedding gift for their partner so we thought why not make these sessions even more special by offering a full bridal boudoir package - our classic boudoir experience, re-envisoned for the bride-to-be.

THE STORY BEHIND THE BRAND - JUST WHERE DOES THAT TWIG’S BRANCH PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE COME FROM? BY MR TWIG

Marmite. No I’m not peckish and fancying a bit of toast, but this is probably the best way to describe people’s feelings towards our in-house style here at The Branch - you either love it or hate it. We hope you love it, totes obvs, but if someone feels we’re not the best fit for them then that’s also fine as there are lots of photographers out there to suit different tastes. 

For those of you who love what we do, you may have wondered where our unique (and some would say iconic… I’ll get brownie points for getting that in from the marketing guru that is Mrs Twig) style comes from. Well, sit down, take the load off and let’s have coffee and a chat (mine’s a latte).

THE POLITICS OF WEDDING FAIRS: How the Industry may be Hoodwinking YOU - by Mrs Twig

THE POLITICS OF WEDDING FAIRS: How the Industry may be Hoodwinking YOU - by Mrs Twig

Politics and weddings probably aren’t two topics you’d expect to see coupled together in the same sentence (unless you are considering the fallout from sitting Auntie Jean next to cousin Frank at the reception when they haven’t spoken for 15 years). However, since becoming wedding suppliers ourselves, Mr Twig and I have realised that this industry is all about politics, cliques and inner circles that are more difficult than those little single serve sauce sachets to break into (I mean, seriously, could restaurants make it more obvious they don’t want you to use the condiments?!).

But, what does this mean for you, the client? Well, ultimately, you are in danger of being hoodwinked.

To Blog, or Not to Blog... and Other Interesting Stuff

We love to blog at The Branch but, lately, we’ve been so busy creating our iconic vintage photography that we just haven’t had time to sit down and write something new.

So we’ve had a ponder and we’ve come up with some pretty nifty ideas, if we do say so ourselves!

It struck us that our most popular social media posts by far are our ‘sneaky peek’ images so, going forward, we’ll not only be treating you to more sneaky peeks than ever before via the blog, but also highlight reels, behind-the-scenes images and other bits and pieces from the majority of our shoots (subject to client consent, of course). This way you get to see more of the things you love and we can make regular blog posts with ready-made content. It’s a bit like having your cake and eating it (mmm cake).

Wedding Photography and the Price of Tomatoes - By Mrs Twig

Wedding Photography and the Price of Tomatoes - By Mrs Twig

Why is wedding photography so expensive? This is a question we get asked so often and it’s a good question, after all photography is just pointing a camera in the general vicinity of the subject and pressing a button, right? 

Anyone can do it.

It’s a bit like asking your best mate who has just procured that tiny new micro-drill to perform a root canal. Saves a few quid so what’s the harm, eh?

Why I Don't Mind My Husband Taking Pictures of Other Women in Their Underwear - By Mrs Twig

Why I Don't Mind My Husband Taking Pictures of Other Women in Their Underwear - By Mrs Twig

As the wife of a boudoir photographer, I am often asked if I mind that my husband spends much of his time surrounded by women in their underwear. The short, and somewhat surprising, answer is no. Granted, it takes a little getting used to being confronted with images of half-naked women staring out at me from the office computer as I happen by - but there’s something more to these images than bare flesh. 

I know what you’re thinking, what you’d say if you were in my shoes. If it were you the buxom blonde was staring out at from your computer screen. You’d be thinking ‘another woman who thinks she has to take her clothes off to succeed/get ahead/please her partner.’ Delete as appropriate. I know because that’s what I thought, initially (after asking my husband if he’d considered a career in landscape photography).
