While preparing for your wedding day can be about many different things; dress shopping, choosing the perfect florist, sending out all the invites, and doing just about everything under the sun besides spending some (probably much needed) time on yourself, we've created our boudoir sessions to be a complete celebration of YOU from start to finish. This shoot also makes the perfect groom's gift - many of our brides use their boudoir album as a gift to give to their soon-to-be-life-partner on the wedding day. And we think that's wonderful! But what YOU will receive out of the experience is such a gift in and of itself, and that is what we're always most excited about for our bridal boudoir clients :)
We know what you're thinking. "This is great.... for other women" or "I could never do that - I'm too [awkward, un-photogenic, need to lose 5-30lbs]." And while you may feel some of those nerves the night or morning before your shoot, or maybe don't normally describe yourself as "sexy", by the time you see yourself on the back of that camera within the first 5 minutes of your shoot, we promise there won't be a trace of those nerves to be found. This is one of the most special times in your life, to celebrate who you are to yourself, and to your future partner. Your fiancé sees you as the most beautiful, strong, compassionate goddess in the world (he put a ring on it, didn't he?!), so why shouldn't you?
Trusting a professional to find your best angles, understand lighting and lens choices and to help you choose the outfits that will photograph best will ensure your photos come out just how you've always wanted to see yourself. As we like to say, “you can't mess this up.” We take the entire day to celebrate your style and personality, and pamper you with our on-site hair and makeup services by Special Occasion Hair Design, and of course, a bubbly mimosa as soon as you walk through the door!
We love incorporating unique details, like the shoes or veil you'll be wearing when you walk down the aisle, or your man's favorite shirt and tie. Floral designs can also add some bridal feels to your shoot (we love working with Stacy K)! And of course, a ring shot or two never hurt anybody :) But in the end, you'll be the star of this show – we want to capture your most authentic self at this extraordinary time in your life.
So get that Pinterest board going, and have FUN with it! We can't wait to meet you and create the bridal photoshoot of your dreams together :)
