Why You Should Do a Boudoir Session Before Your Wedding

Why You Should Do a Boudoir Session Before Your Wedding

Wednesday, 03 November 2021 16:11

Your wedding is around the corner, and it’s everything you have been dreaming of coming true. Between planning, finding the perfect dress, and coordinating with the venue, you may be feeling excitement, frustration, and anxiety. However, to take a break from wedding planning, treat yourself to a boudoir session. 

A boudoir session is a photography session where you wear sexy outfits, lingerie, or dresses and get your photographs taken by a professional photographer. If I haven’t convinced you just yet, here are a few reasons why you should treat yourself to a boudoir session before your wedding. 


How Does a Boudoir Photo Session Work?

When you book your bridal boudoir photo session, your photographer will ask you where you feel most comfortable taking the photos, as well as what style and theme you would like to express. Boudoir photographers are professionals who treat their clients respectfully and make sure they feel safe. 

They will prioritize their client’s style, requests, and budget. The most important thing during a boudoir photoshoot is that the bride feels celebrated, beautiful, and confident. 

Boudoir Makes for a Great Gift for Your Fiance

You can surprise your fiance with a small leather album filled with beautiful photographs of yourself to share with them. Even if you’re not planning this photoshoot as a gift, you owe it to yourself to feel confident, beautiful and pampered by a professional hairstylist and makeup artist. It’s also a chance for you to wear some seductive clothing you may not normally wear. 

A Great Gift for Yourself

Show off your beauty and give yourself photographs that you can treasure for the rest of your life. With professional hair and makeup and a professional photographer, you will receive some of the best portraits of yourself to enjoy. 

Professional photographers know how to pose your individual body type, which will always make you look flattering and uniquely beautiful.

Treat Yourself to Shopping for Lingerie

We always love a good reason to go shopping, and a boudoir photoshoot is a perfect opportunity for you to seek out lingerie that’s tailored to your body type and style. Lingerie shopping is something that some of us feel guilty about doing, but booking a boudoir shoot gives us the excuse to take time to look for pieces that really work for you. 

Besides, you will get a ton of use out of them beyond the photoshoot, whether it’s on your honeymoon, anniversary, or even just a date night. 

It’s a Great Way to Celebrate Your Engagement

Not only will you have beautiful portraits of yourself, but when you look at the photographs, you’ll remember how amazing this time in your life was, and you should be celebrated! When choosing a photographer for your boudoir photoshoot, look for photographers that specialize in the boudoir for the best experience.

It Can Be a Lot of Fun

The right photographer will make you feel comfortable throughout the photoshoot but will keep the mood light, offering words of encouragement and a few good laughs. For more fun, make it a girls’ day and invite your bridesmaids along with Champagne to sip on and cheer you on. 

You can even bring them along for your lingerie shopping ahead of the shoot to get their honest opinions on any purchases. 

Perfect Opportunity for You and Your Photographer

A good, professional photographer not only creates a stunning wedding album but will make you feel comfortable, confident, and beautiful. 

It’s easy for a professional photographer to capture the true beauty of the moment and reveal your most gorgeous self when you naturally smile. If you are comfortable with a photographer shooting you in lingerie, you will definitely be comfortable with the photographer at your wedding.
