Wedding Present Ideas
Bridal Boudoir Photography as a wedding present.
Boudoir photography is a growing trend and more and more women of all shapes and sizes are having these photo shoots. Bridal boudoir photography makes a truly unique wedding present and one of the best times to go for a photo shoot is a few weeks before your wedding day. You can then have the photos printed in a display box or made into an album. This left with a cheeky note to your husband to be saying “Meet me at the altar” will make the best present he is ever likely to get.
So what exactly is Boudoir?
Boudoir photography is more than just showing flesh, it is the art of flirtation through photography. And like many other art forms it allows the viewer to explore the unknown, use their imagination and leave them wanting more. It must not be confused with Glamour and certainly is not pornographic! Your photographer should be an expert in the use of props, lighting and positioning to get the most from your body and accentuate your best features.
What can I expect from the photo shoot?
All photographers conduct their photo shoots differently. They may range in timescale from maybe 1 hour to half a day. It really does depend on who you’ve booked. My advice would be to chat to the photographer either over the phone or in person before booking the shoot. You will then get a feel for how it will all go and importantly how relaxed you feel and how well you will get on with your photographer. A typical photo shoot at my studio will start with a cup of tea or even a glass of fizz together with chat to go over some ideas and themes for the shoot. You will then spend about an hour or so with Laura, my hair and makeup artist, who will completely transform you. The photo shoot itself should take between 1 and 2 hours using a number of outfit changes, props, furniture and backgrounds. You can then go home still looking stunning with your hair and makeup done or hit the town with your girlfriends. A couple of weeks later after the photo’s have been fully edited, you will return to the studio to view your pictures to decide which ones you want and which products you may want to use to display your photographs.
Choosing the best photographer.
This can be a big decision and you want to get it right because as this is for a wedding present you only really have one chance. I would firstly consider if you are happy with either a male or female photographer because this could rule out half of the options straight away. Most importantly you should look at the photographer’s website. This will give you examples of their style of boudoir photography, their props and backdrops and also their hair and makeup.
