After four years of debate, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) was ratified by the European Union and will now become law from 25 May 2018.

Organisations and businesses outside the EU are subject to this regulation when they collect data concerning any citizen of the EU (and the UK after Brexit). GDPR is designed to give individuals better control over their personal data held by organisations

Moodboard: January Engagements

January engagements are lovely. They really encompass that feeling of new beginnings and something exciting about to happen. 

One of our favourite things about January engagements is the use of deep, moody colours. This month is the time of rich burgundies, deep greens and classic black. These colours give a dramatic feel to the images, while still keeping them warm and intimate. 

We also love the connection to the new year. It’s the perfect time to start a new chapter of your life with the person you love. Plus, who doesn’t love the use of sparkly confetti in their engagement pictures?
