3 Tips for planning your Bridal Boudoir Session

Bridal boudoir has become such a staple of my boudoir repertoire. I found that providing this service for brides  is a welcome chance to design a folio that is just as much for the little Mrs. as it is for the Groom.
Read on as we showcase a bridal boudoir session with Miss N and I share a few tips with you about planning your own bridal boudoir session…

#1 | PLAY UP ACCESSORIES THAT MIGHT OTHERWISE BE OVERLOOKED ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

Whether it’s the bridal veil or the garter, this is a perfect opportunity to showcase the items you so painstakingly selected for your big day.  Here are just some suggestions for accessories your bridal boudoir session…

  • veil (we have an extra at the studio in case you don’t want to bring yours.)
  • wedding shoes
  • garter
  • gown, showing the bride in varying states of undress is perfect for her husband-to-be
  • bridal jewelry, including a freshly-cleaned engagement ring

 

Bridal lingerie – check out kisskill.com.au for an impeccable selection

  • something blue
  • something that is distinct to him – an old t-shirt from his favourite sports team, a neck tie, colours that he loves to see you wear
  • an invitation or save-the-date
  • his cufflinks – a great idea if these would be given in tandem with the album 

#2 | USE THIS SESSION AS A TRIAL FOR MAKEUP & HAIR FOR THE BIG DAY

At our studio we work with only Melbourne’s finest and professional stylists, but many of them also work as freelance artists for television and for, you guessed it, your big wedding day!  

Since boudoir sessions are typically booked well in advance of the wedding, you can utilize the session to test drive your look for the big day. Or it can be an opportunity for you to step out of your normal day-to-day and go for glamorous look that you might not choose for your wedding day.  (think: extensions, heavier smokey eye).

#3 | DOING A SESSION WITH ME WILL ONLY MAKE YOU LOOK BETTER ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

I know, you’re thinking… Huh?!  How is posing in lingerie going to make my wedding day photos better?!  

The truth is it absolutely will.  

Since I am a specialist trained in the art of posing women’s bodies and coaching for expression, you are going to walk away from a session with us remembering some of the posing tips we gave you (that felt awkward but looked amazing) and use those when posing for your bridal portraits. You will hear “chin forward and down” a lot during a session with us and it will be used in future selfies until the end of time, or “connect the shoulder to the chin” and “elongate the neck.” All these things will undoubtedly give you better portraits when you finally say, “I do.”

What do other women say about their Boudoir Sessions?

With my love for boudoir, I could go on for hours about why every woman should book a session. The best part is you don’t have to just take my word for it. Check out some of these amazing testimonials and live videos from clients who’ve had the experience!

Boudoir style photography was something I've always wanted to do and I finally acted upon that wish and booked in a session. It started with a phone call to Alessio who was just so friendly, guinuine and answered all my questions. Next came all the informative and helpful guides leading up to the big day. I felt prepared on the day and the photoshoot itself was so much fun! Alessio was professional but friendly and made me feel completely comfortable. I recently picked up my album and was blown away by the quality and the photographs themselves. I couldn't be happier with the result!

Meg Rao "A Photoshoot with Alessio is just an amazing experience!"

Alessio was a complete professional the entire time in the warmest, kindest and most respectful way possible. We had fun, we laughed a lot and I felt relaxed and happy as a result. I felt beautiful during the shoot and the photos were absolutely stunning. I love them and I am so proud of them. I could not recommend this experience more, it was so good and I can't wait to do it again!

Stefanie Carne "Being photographed by Alessio from Le Chat Noir Boudoir was one of the best experiences in my life!"
