For many women their wedding day is the one day when they feel like a celebrity. They have honed their bodies, followed rigorous beauty routines, and had their hair and makeup professionally styled to make them not only look incredible, but feel more beautiful and confident than at any other time in their lives as they walk down the aisle. Azariah wanted to extend that feeling but give it a personal twist just for her husband which is why she asked for a bridal boudoir photoshoot.
Boudoir photography is enormously feminine and empowering. It allows a women to be photographed in the most flattering way, so they can show a side of their personality which is usually kept under wraps. Surprising your spouse-to-be with a sensual collection of photos on the morning of your wedding will certainly make sure they’re at the church on time!
But I’m Not a Model!
Wedding boudoir photography is not for models, but for normal women who want to celebrate the way they feel at this particular point in their lives. All women are beautiful regardless of their age, size, or the way they see themselves. A bridal boudoir shoot is about capturing that beauty in tasteful, sophisticated photos you can feel proud of.
Boudoir photography is so much fun! It’s all about helping you find a style that portray your personality, whether it’s playful, sexy, romantic, or a combination of all three. Our team knows all the tricks to compliment and flatter your femininity, using lighting and posing to showcase your body at its best. The experience is as much a gift for yourself as the person you plan to give the photos to.
What Should I Wear to my Bridal Boudoir Photoshoot?
You can wear what you like for your bridal boudoir photoshoot. Azariah felt more comfortable with her dress on at the start, but once her confidence in front of the camera grew she changed into lingerie and was thrilled with the results. It is good to bring a choice of outfits, shoes, and jewellery that you can play around with until you strike on a look you are happy with. You don’t have to be naked to be sexy.
Understandably, our team for any boudoir photoshoot is as small as possible. As well as the photographer, there is a hairstylist and a makeup artist, and you. That’s it, unless you bring someone with you.
Getting Ready for a Boudoir Photoshoot
Prepare for your shoot the way you would for a hot date – or your wedding day! We’ll take care of your hair and makeup, but your hands and feet will be on show so you might want a manicure and pedicure. Eat a light breakfast avoiding anything which normally makes you feel bloated, and wear clothing that is comfortable and loose fitting. As with wedding photography, boudoir photography is as much about the experience as it is about the result.
