Looking to find beautiful, curated photography for your social media platforms?

Photographers Camilla Arnhold and Helen Cawte have joined forces with wedding planner and business coach Kim Balasubramaniam to launch The Luminous.

The trio have a combined experience of over 30 years in the wedding industry.

The subscription service allows members to access and download from an extensive gallery of refined and elegant photography.

Members are also offered an extensive range of educational resources.

These can be used to further promote their businesses and reach target clients with fully editable social media templates, creating stand-out graphics.

Camilla, from Christchurch, pictured left, said: “Without hiring a professional photographer for a branding shoot, it’s very hard for small businesses to produce consistent images with a high-end look.

“At The Luminous we solve this problem for them.

“The Luminous has been a dream of ours for some time but, due to the impact Covid-19 has had on our individual businesses, we have been inspired to make our dream a reality.

“We know so many businesses who will benefit from our service.

“We are opening our doors to memberships on September 14 so now would be a good time for Dorset businesses to sign up.”

Memberships start from £19 per month.

Camilla is a fine art photographer and one of the few film photographers in the country.

She has captured some of the most stunning quintessentially English weddings in her career and is recommended by several of England’s finest stately homes and private estates.

Kim, pictured right, founded her wedding planning and design studio in 2005.

It has since become an internationally acclaimed brand within the wedding industry.

She has worked with hundreds of couples and countless industry professionals, both as a planner and business consultant.

Helen, pictured left, documents weddings across some of the most stunning destinations in Europe.

She is also one half of the founding duo behind The Collective, a community of business founders.
