Why Brides Should Book a Boudoir Portrait Session? | Boston Massachusetts Boudoir Photography Studio

When it comes to wedding-planning priorities, booking the perfect wedding photographer is at the top of the list. From your engagement session to your bridal portraits, there are a lot of opportunities to stand in front of the camera. But one that might not be on your radar- A boudoir session.  For brides-to-be, this is an opportunity to dress up in something sexy and work it.  Sure, getting your picture taken while posing in lingerie may seem intimidating, but with the right photographer and attitude, it can be a totally liberating experience!  Here, five reasons why you should consider a pre-wedding boudoir session.

1. To celebrate you

A boudoir session is a great way to celebrate you and to create some amazing photographs that reflect just how incredible you really are. We are so rush-rush all the time and it's easy to forget to stop and give ourselves some self love and appreciation for who we are right now.  Especially at this special time of a bride's life.  Imagine the power these images will have in 20, 30, even 50 years' time...when you can look back at these memories and see just how beautiful, confident, and sexy you were at this stage of your life.  


2. To make you feel empowered

A boudoir shoot is a great way to boost your self confidence before your wedding.  Looking back at the moments when you felt sexy and beautiful will remind you of your worth not because of the beauty you see in the images but because you will remember the confidence you felt that day.  Feeling empowered and confident in your own skin is invaluable!


3. It's an excuse to go lingerie shopping

Between securing the venue, caterer, DJ, and officiant (the list goes on and on…), planning a wedding can be consuming. Sometimes a bride-to-be just needs a break. And what better way to spend some well-deserved down time than lingerie shopping? After all, you're going to need a few pretty little things for your wedding night!


4. It makes a great gift for your groom/partner!

Your other half sees you at your best and worst—and still thinks you're gorgeous. Imagine their face when you surprise them with an album full of stunning images on your big day.  Bridal boudoir photos are the wedding gift these days.  I just got to witness first hand this nervous groom sit on the edge of a hotel bed just one room away from his stunning bride.  I handed him his gift and watched him all goggly eyed as he flipped through the pages in awe and completely surprised with his super personal gift.  I just don't think an engraved flask would have had the same effect.  It was the best feeling ever!

5. It will make you more comfortable in front of the camera

Some time in front of the camera will make you way more comfortable on your special day.  A boudoir session is an intimate experience between client and photographer, requiring a lot of guidance and trust.  You connect on a much deeper level than say, a family portrait session.  The more trust, the better the images are as a result.  With the right photographer these images should exude confidence and there is nothing more sexy than confident woman!
