It’s customary to give a gift to your future spouse on the day of your wedding, and figuring out just the perfect gift can be tricky.
Most likely you’ll want it to be something a little fun, a little flirty, and mostly something that will peak their interest. What could you gift them that falls into all three of those requirements? Bridal boudoir.
Slipping your S.O. an album full of sexy, scantily clad images of you on your big day will not only be a pleasant surprise, but one the two of you can look back on for years to come.
Here are a few tips to ensure your bridal boudoir session is a success:
1. Find an Experienced Photographer
If you do a quick search online for a boudoir photography studio in Ohio, you’ll see you have many different options. The most important aspect of successful boudoir images is the person holding the lens, so be sure you select someone with the experience and skillset to deliver the images you’re looking for.
Review their portfolio, have a chat with them on the phone, and ask for references to ensure you’re spending your hard-earned dollar well.
At Lucidaré Studio, we welcome you to review our portfolio, contact us online, or give us a call to discuss a potential boudoir session. We’re more than happy to sit down and have a detailed, in-depth conversation with all our potential clients to address any questions and concerns.
2. Research Poses
Do a bit of homework and discover pose ideas that you (and you think your fiancé) like. Pinterest is a great tool to collect inspiration – please visit our own carefully curated Pinterest board for a great starting point!
Discuss the poses you have in mind with your photographer, and together you can come up with an action plan.
3. Carefully Select Your Outfit
What you wear (or don’t wear) during your bridal boudoir session is incredibly important. No matter if you choose to wear bridal themed lingerie, one of your fiancé’s shirts, a sports jersey, or a snuggly sweater, you should aim to wear whatever you feel your best in. If you’re uncomfortable with whatever you’re wearing it will come across in your photos, and that’s not a good look.
4. Prepare Yourself Mentally and Physically
Our Boudoir Session Tips are extremely helpful for pleasing results and will ensure you make the most of our your boudoir photo session.
Be sure to avoid spray tans or tanning products for at least 5 days before your shoot. A botched spray tan isn’t easily disguisable in photos, so it’s best to be as close to your natural skin tone as you can.
Treat yourself to a manicure and pedicure to ensure your hands and feet are photo ready, schedule a facial to prep your skin, and be sure to drink lots of water in the days leading up to your shoot. For an extra bit of pampering, entrust a makeup artist to professionally apply your makeup and style your hair so you’re looking your absolute best on the day of your shoot. At Lucidaré Studio, we have a makeup artist on staff, and makeup services can be added onto any package.
Lastly, get yourself amped up and excited about your shoot! Clients who are eager for their shoot and looking forward to it are always the best to work with, and their positive attitudes garner great results in the final product.
