About Blush & Mint Photography
Hi I am Rene, a lover of pretty things, craft and love stories.
I was not always the “girliest” of girls, I didn’t grow up like some other girls I knew, I didn’t dream of my wedding day or play with makeup... No, I was outside with a football in my hand or singing in my bedroom loudly to rock music.
In my early 20's I started to become interested in fashion and began selling vintage clothing at markets. This evolved to the point where I opened my first store, In Love Again Vintage where I developed a keen interest in bridal fashion.
As well as now photographing weddings, for many years i have owned 'The Vintage Bride Boutique' which specialises in vintage and designer wedding gowns and I found my true passion and love... WEDDINGS!
Who would have thought the Tom Boy playing football with the boys at lunch time would own a pretty little bridal boutique full of lace and ruffles.
As my store grew so did my love of weddings and memories. I spend a lot of time researching bridal styling and wedding ideas and there is so much emotion within a wedding day. My mission is to capture the joy of a wedding day and the moments that my couples will forever cherish when the confetti has settled on the dance floor.
I also have a love of family portraiture, I adore working with children as I have worked with children with learning difficulties for over 14 years and it is always fun working out their quirks and capturing their personalities and the dynamic of the families I get to work with. I also have my own little bundle of love and energy, my daughter Ellie,
Recently I have added family films as part of what I am able to offer my wonderful clients.
So if you would like to know more or make a time to meet and discuss how we can capture some beautiful memories for your walls and albums I would love to hear from you.
