Why You Should Definitely do a Bridal Boudoir Session

Bridal Boudoir: The Ultimate Gift

It’s become a popular tradition for the wedding couple to exchange gifts on the wedding day.  Many couples rack their brains on what to get each other that truly matches the significance of the day.  It’s gotta be more momentous than what you usually exchange on holidays or birthdays, and yet, also somehow personal and sentimental.  While many brides end up getting their partner a watch or jewelry, we’ve got a better idea:  bridal boudoir portraits!  Putting on pretty lingerie and strutting your stuff may seem intimidating, but with the right attitude—and the right photographer—a boudoir shoot can be an empowering and amazing experience, and it’s a gift your spouse will never forget.

Here are all the reasons that bridal boudoir is the ultimate gift to give your spouse-to-be:

Photos are forever.

Think about this:  Beautiful heirloom portraiture will never break.  It doesn’t need batteries.  It won’t go out of style.  It will always fit. It is truly one-of-a-kind — no one else in the world has the exact same thing. Can you say the same thing of other items you might be considering?

The real gift is YOU.

It’s important to remember that throughout the hustle and bustle of a wedding day — through the flowers and the hair and makeup and the clothing and the music and the guest list — the real meaning of the day is that the two of you are joining your lives together, and that’s the most important gift you can give.  When your partner opens these beautiful portraits of you, it’s a reminder of what the day is all about.

Give them a unique gift.

The love of your life sees you at your best and your worst and still loves you and thinks you’re gorgeous. Imagine their reaction when you surprise them with an album of boudoir photos the morning of your wedding day! It’s a gift that will get you both excited for your wedding night and will make your day that much more special.

Feel empowered and gorgeous.

A boudoir shoot is a great way to increase your self-confidence before your wedding and to help you feel more confident and comfortable in your own skin. This is something we could all use more of every day, but during the stress and nerves of wedding planning, a little extra confidence can be just the boost you need.

Have an excuse to pamper yourself.

In between scheduling the caterer, booking the venue, and everything else that comes with wedding planning, chances are you could use a break. What better way to spend some much-needed downtime than to go shopping for something sexy and beautiful? Plus, you’re going to want some new pieces for your wedding night and honeymoon.  And then on the day of your session, relax, sip mimosas, get your hair and makeup done, and have a break from wedding planning that will make you feel amazing.

Capture a special moment in your life.

As a bride, by definition you are at the start of a new life with your partner.  A boudoir session is an awesome way to capture that moment and that feeling.  Years from now, as you’re older and happily settled, it will seem as though you’ve always been together. Photographs are able to transport us back to a specific time and place.  They often bring back the emotions we felt that day. Boudoir photos can help you document a time when you felt beautiful, alive, and full of hope for a future you haven’t yet lived.
