Neill Menneer
CEO & Chief Photographer
I have been a photographer all my life. After completing my degree in photography at Guildford (with a distinction!!) I won the Observer Photographic award and this gave me the confidence to go freelance. I subsequently worked regularly in London for some of the UK’s top magazines including Harpers and Queen and all the colour supplements. Jo and I came to Bath in 1987 but it was not until 2007 that we moved into our present studio. Since then we have won many business/Photographic awards (Bath Life, SWPP and Click Corporation) and hope that this reflects our dedication to customer service and the quality of our work. We have created the perfect photographic environment in The Old Methodist Church and have furnished three separate but distinct studios, two of which are dedicated solely to Boudoir. I still have a genuine passion for photography and love nothing more than creating art works of women, using all my knowledge of lighting and the human form. I strive for elegance and beauty in all that I do.
Jo Menneer
Marketing Director & Make-Up Artist
Divine Divas is very close to my heart. I have seen what a positive effect it has on women who come to us when their confidence is low. Sometimes I meet women years later and they tell me how it has made such a big difference. I am the main hair & make-up artist: I love this part. Quite often women have never seen themselves looking so gorgeous before. I also do a lot of the viewings, I get very excited about doing the big reveal when clients see their images for the first time. The amount of times I have heard ‘I can’t believe it’s me!’ I have also done a few of my own boudoir shoots and feel really chuffed at how I look in the photos. When I’m not in the studio you will probably find me walking Jaspa our dog, I like to eat healthily so I try out recipes from Hemsley & Hemsley or Deliciously Ella having bought a big pile of veggies from our local greengrocers-but then curl up in front of a box set with a large glass of red and a bar of dark chocolate!
Jesse Loughborough
Photographer & Production Manager
I love collaborating with clients to create beautiful images that make people happy and feel great about themselves. As a father of twins I understand that life can sometimes pass you by if you're not careful and it is so important to make time for and embrace all your roles in life. In fact one of the things I love most about my job is seeing the positive impact we can sometimes have on women's lives when they allow us to remind them that there's more to them than just their job/kids/responsibilities. I have been with the company since 2002 and in my dual role as photographer and production manager I’m in the lucky position of working with people’s photos from shutter release to product completion. When I'm not at the studio I try my best to be a good father to the twins and husband to my wife. I still manage to enjoy photography as a hobby and my wife and I also play softball in Bristol during the summer months.

Emilie Giotti
Photographer & Assistant Studio Manager
I have two roles at Divine Divas as a photographer and on the customer service side, doing bookings and viewings. Working here, there is never a dull moment as the studio is always filled with laughter. I love being able to give women the confidence boost they deserve as so many are in need, from mums to newly single or just wanting to fall back in love yourself. You may get to hear my voice on the end of the phone, I’ll try and answer all your questions and help put you at ease. My passion is photography and to be able to shoot in one of the South West’s premier studio is an honour. It’s so important to me you have at least one image of yourself you can be proud of, leave your stamp on the world! In my spare time I do my own creative portraiture photography and always sourcing new ideas and interesting props.
Harriet Gallon
Makeup Artist
I am a fully qualified hair and makeup artist and have been doing this for over 5 years. Every day at the studio I get to meet women who are often lacking in confidence and have lost that feeling of self-love. As a hair and makeup artist I love nothing more than bringing out that confidence by showing them a sexy and glamourous side, which can come as a surprise to a lot of women who aren’t used to seeing themselves in that way. Outside of work at the studio I get the chance to pamper brides on their special days as well as surround myself with my makeup kit and experiment with new exciting products and makeup styles. I like to spend my down time relaxing with my friends, either at a funky bar in Bath or at home with a good movie and a big glass of wine
Jaspa
The Studio Dog
I am 3 years old and love to have my belly tickled. When you arrive at the studio the grown-ups usually keep me away from you, which I find very frustrating. I have been rechristened Ninja dog as I have a really great ability to sneak past and jump on you on the sofa. So if you like to tickle tummies please make sure you stop them taking me away from you.

Ms E

Yet another uplifting shoot.  Who doesn’t love a good pamper! A great group of people to work with, I am beyond thrilled with the photos.

Ms W

I had my session a couple of years ago now. It was a treat to myself before my wedding because I felt so self conscious and awkward in front of the camera, hating every picture of myself! I wasn’t expecting to like any of the pictures but in the end had too much choice! A great experience and confidence booster. Everyone was friendly throughout the whole thing from booking to the final picking up of the picture. Would highly recommend

Ms B

Had an amazing time having a boudoir shoot. After losing 5 stone my body confidence was pretty rubbish but I seriously enjoyed this experience and was so unbelievably happy with the images. I will have a very happy hubby on our wedding day

Ms P

Highly recommended!!!
Great experience, lovely team. Jo was so welcoming and put me at ease right from the start. I picked up my images and all I could say was WOW. They were so much better than I expected. Let’s just say I had a very happy hubby on Christmas Day.
I’ve decided to hold on to one of the images till Valentine’s Day. I just know he’s going to love it!!!!
All I will say is just do it. Any size any shape the team will work their magic. You will be amazed. Thank you Divine Divas. Xx

Ms L

Had my first photo shoot today! Wow is all I can say! I NEVER normally do ANYTHING like this as its way out of my comfort zone, but I just want to say I loved my experience so much, from start to finish and came out buzzing thank you so much, can’t wait to view the final product soon xx

Ms P

Wow !! Such a liberating and fun experience. Thank you lovely Emilie for the beautiful pictures and bringing out the Diva in me!

Ms S

Truly great experience – would recommend to anyone. The team are great & you leave the studio feeling uplifted, beautiful & confident. The atmosphere flows & as soon as you enter the studio , you feel at ease. The viewing was a great experience too. Worth giving a go definitely whatever shape or size you may think you are in the mirror. Thank you for a great time

Ms V

: I was lucky enough to have a Divine Divas experience. It was incredible, inspiring, fun. I think the NHS should prescribe it as a ‘feel good treatment’! I cannot recommend it highly enough for all ladies despite age or size. Thankyou Divine Divas

Ms G

I am a bigger girl & I was absolutely terrified about this boudoir experience but I could not recommend it enough.. or been more impressed. All the staff are professional but more importantly all so friendly too!!
Neill the photographer is amazing at what he does… and he puts you at ease instantly & throughout.
I was also really impressed with the private viewing & while on that subject; Emilie who did our viewing with us, (and also helped throughout during the day) was incredibly helpful, friendly, flexible & with my low self-esteem was the best person for the job!!
I did the shoot for my husband & he was very happy with the pics to say the least lol !!
I want to thank u all … amazing from start to finish!!
