You’ve been planning your big day for months. You’ve picked out the perfect dress, found the right venue, sent out the invitations, and nailed down the details for your wedding day timeline.
And now with your wedding day just around the corner, you might be asking yourself should you do a boudoir photo shoot as a wedding gift? Is it something you should consider? Is boudoir photography worth it?
If you're on the fence about doing a bridal boudoir photo shoot, here are 5 reasons we say to go for it!
1. A Boudoir Photo Album Makes For An Awesome Wedding Gift
When it comes to planning the perfect present for the big day, sometimes you have to think outside of the box and take a different approach. Something like a bridal boudoir shoot is the perfect gift that takes some time and effort to plan, but it’s something that your partner will cherish for years to come.
A hand-crafted photo album also makes for a luxurious and thoughtful gift. It’s like getting three presents in one: a gorgeous photo album, custom boudoir photos, and the feeling that you put in the work to create something amazing.
2. A Boudoir Photo Album Is The Ultimate Surprise!
Why is planning a surprise so exciting? Is it the element of mystery, the idea that you might miss out on something amazing because you didn't know about it? Well, bridal boudoir photography meets those criteria and makes for an unforgettable surprise.Think back to when you were little and someone gave you a really cool gift that you couldn't wait to open up. And then they made you wait until the correct moment before opening their present – couldn’t it have been more torturous?! We think this type of build-up creates anticipation, excitement, and definitely will tickle your loved one’s imagination.
3. Bridal Boudoir Photos Are Different From Traditional Wedding Day Photos
One of the biggest perks of a bridal boudoir photo session is that you get to make it your own. It’s a whole different experience from the wedding day photos, where the majority of photos you have an entourage of family members or friends with you.
A boudoir photo album is a private keepsake gift between you and your fiancé and shows a more intimate side of you that won't be showcased in your wedding photography. If you've ever dreamt about having professional photography capture your sexy, sultry side, a boudoir session to celebrate your wedding is the time to do it!
4. Boudoir Photos Can Capture The Most Beautiful Version Of Yourself
Nerves tend to kick in on the big day- when it comes time for family photos, when it’s time to take those first steps down the aisle, or when it’s just time to look gorgeous and smile for the camera. But what if there was another way? What if your photographer could capture you in a moment where there were no nerves, and you could show how beautiful you are?
A bridal boudoir photo shoot is your chance to shine. It’s a private session where you get to be yourself and feel sexy in front of the camera. Your photographer will help guide and position you throughout the shoot so that you can relax and show off your best features. And the result will be one-of-a-kind, gorgeous photos that you can share with your partner on your wedding day or save for yourself to look back on and admire.
5. You’ll Never Regret Having a Boudoir Photo Shoot
It’s definitely not for everyone, but for those who go for it, you will never look back and think "I should have done that."
When you do your bridal boudoir photo session, you will be surprised at how empowering the experience can be. In fact, many women find it to be a truly therapeutic experience that’s as eye-opening as it is body-positive.
