Over the years I’ve seen countless wedding trends, from decor to colors, and everything in between. I have to say, one of my favorite trends is the giving of gifts between the bride and groom. It can be as simple as a letter of excitement and love, or something more extravagant like a new MacBook Air (true story). Regardless of how much you spend on the gift, it’s a sweet gesture when you spend months planning out the day for your family and fiends to enjoy.
Many of my brides opt for a more personal gift, a boudoir shoot. This is done several months before the big day, and the photos are given in a book or framed print the morning (or evening) of the wedding. Naturally the guys LOVE this, but it’s also a fun and liberating experience for the ladies.
I know the idea of getting nearly naked while someone takes your photo sounds like the stuff of nightmares, but I promise it’s not as scary as you’d think! I do boudoir shoots for my brides every year, and I love seeing these women leave the session with a pep in their step, beaming with confidence. It’s a freeing day, and my goal is to show you (yes, YOU) how beautiful you truly are!!
Due to the private nature of boudoir photography, I do not blog or post photos from my sessions. So many people don’t know I offer this service to brides and past clients. If you are interested in a boudoir shoot for your fiancé or husband (makes a great anniversary gift), contact me and I’ll be happy to walk you through all the details.
