It’s often said that a wedding day is the bride’s day; and why shouldn’t it be? You have spent months agonizing over every little detail. From who to invite, the venue, the seating plan, the color theme, and of course the dress… the list goes on.
It can be easy to get totally wrapped up in making sure the day is perfect that you overlook your significant other. A bridal boudoir photo shoot can be the perfect gift for your hubby to be. It’s private, saucy, and can be a lot of fun.
What should you expect at the photoshoot?
A bridal boudoir shoot is a private shoot with a professional photographer. Normally, it is only you and the photographer that will be at the shoot.
The photographer will not ask you to do any funky or provocative poses, although you may be asked to remove your clothes as part of the photoshoot. It is important that you are comfortable during the photo shoot and that the pictures are tasteful – this is, after all, a gift for you and your husband – not for your photographer!
Can you take a friend if you really want to?
A boudoir shoot is an intimate experience; therefore, only you and your photographer should be present. If you feel that you would like a family member or friend to be present, please consult with the photographer before the photo shoot.
What should you wear?
The time for your boudoir shoot will be scheduled around 2-3 weeks before your wedding day; this way, you will have time to buy props and outfits. You should feel comfortable wearing the outfits to the shoot; do not feel like you ‘have to’ wear something in particular. If you’re not comfortable in a thong, don’t wear a thong!
You may also want to bring colors that match your chosen wedding theme. Your photographer will help you choose outfits that best suit you and your boudoir pictures.
What does the photographer want from me?
The photographer will want to create images of you that do justice to you and your time preparing for the big day. The photographer will need you to feel relaxed and comfortable during the shoot.
It’s not just about him!
Whilst this is a gift for your husband to be, you will also have some great pictures for your own photographic archive. Why not have a photographic record of all of the hard work in getting yourself in the best possible shape for your big day.
What will the final album look like?
Your photographer will compile a selection of images that you will review and select. Once you have selected the best possible images, the rest of your photo album will be hand compiled and edited so that it is a personalized gift for your groom.
There is no gift in life greater than yourself, so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity to create a memory that you will be proud to look at after 10, 20, or even 30 years.
