Top Five Reasons to Book an Intimate Photo Session Before the Wedding Day
Also Known as Boudoir sessions, these intimate-style photography sessions are a luxury photo experience that has not lost its luster and has only gained in popularity over the past several years.
This style of photo session is often done in a bedroom-type setting with a professional photographer in most cases that specializes in the art of boudoir posing and lighting. Often the sessions are curated around magical mirrors, tantalizing bedroom furniture, and soft seductive natural window lighting to enhance the feeling of romance and intimacy.
Adding just one-directional studio light can create depth and shadows adding an increased air of pushing an erotic vibe to the experience and overall end product. Boudoir photo sessions are more than a photoshoot capturing sexy photos in lingerie. Participants often discover a new side of themselves that is beautiful and strong.
1.Boudoir photos make a treasured gift to yourself and significate other
Capturing this moment in time is an amazing gift to YOU! It is a chance to capture, what many believe, is the best part of themselves just before their big event or wedding day.
“Many of our past clients that have participated in one of our intimate boudoir photo sessions often tell us later on how much the session meant to them and how they still treasure the album or photos they took home.“

2. This type of photo session actually helps build confidence and self esteem
Many studios offer professional hair and makeup with an artist who can help spotlight your best features before the shoot and boost your self-esteem. When you see how beautiful you are, it takes it to a whole new level.
It is true that a boudoir session will push you a little out of your comfort zone, but it’s a chance for you to shine brighter than you ever thought possible on camera and it’s a great time!
“We have relaxing music playing and we always pose every set up so you never really have to think about what to do. It is one of the easiest sessions you can do! What is not shown in these provocative and sexy photos is all the fun happening in the background.”
3.You are ready for the wedding day gift exchange with the perfect gift!
It has become very popular for couples to exchange gifts before the vows. While it is still considered “optional”, the gift exchange between couples on their wedding day has become very popular. This is the perfect time to sneak over an album or a set of elegantly wrapped photos. Have a member of the bridal party hand deliver (most often the maid of honor or best man) to your fiancé while they are getting ready. Tip: Make sure the photographer knows about the exchange in advance.
4. Sexy bridal lingerie will take you from the boudoir shoot to the honeymoon.
Wedding lingerie for the night of and/or your honeymoon is a must-have staple. The best part is you are already prepared with all of the items you need to make a statement! White lingerie for weddings is still very popular and can be found in a variety of stunning sets, but the color doesn’t always fit with every bridal style must-have. It is ok to get creative and choose a color that makes you feel beautiful, many bridal lingerie sets come in multiple colors or patterns.
5. It’s the gift that keeps giving.
People give gifts as a way of showing thoughtfulness, love, and affection. But how long do those gifts last? This special gift although meant for someone else- will give you so much in return for years to come. You will equally enjoy looking back at a time in your life when you felt unstoppable and happy! Together with your partner, you will enjoy paging back on an intimate album for years to come. When we give gifts, it brings joy or pleasure to the receiver, but in the case of a boudoir session, it’s the gift that you give yourself as well.
