Boudoir photography is the latest trend in wedding photography.
This is typically a gift the bride gives to her future husband in lieu of the more traditional groom’s gifts (i.e. watches, cuff links, golf clubs, etc.). Imagine your groom as he unwraps his gift prior to the two of you walking down the
aisle and he has a glimpse of what he can look forward to that night.
The look you are going for will determine what to wear. Are you a girly girl? Think corsets, stockings and a great pair of stilettos. If you are a self-proclaimed tomboy, then maybe some strategically ripped jeans and a snug fitting white t-shirt will fit the bill. Incorporate your man in the wardrobe selection. Grab his favorite tie or sports jersey. Do what feels good to you and what will get your guy’s heart racing.
Expect your photo session to be about two hours long depending on who is doing hair and makeup for you.
Many photographers like to use their own team of professionals to help achieve the look they are going for. Ask for a preferred list of professionals they work with on a normal basis.
The location will depend on your photographer and where you are comfortable. They might have their own studio, or recommend a venue that they have a great relationship with. Most will go to wherever you want to capture these special photos. Discuss options with your photographer well in advance so they bring all the necessary equipment.
Questions to ask your photographer:
- What are their privacy policies regarding your intimate images?
- Will they retouch all your photos as part of the package?
- How do they feel about shooting full nudity?
