Photographer to amazing women and beautiful families!

If you’re having trouble figuring out the perfect gift to give your future spouse for your wedding, then a bridal boudoir photo shoot is a perfect choice! It’s flirty, fun, exciting and something your significant other will definitely keep around forever. It’s not only a unique gift but one that will create plenty of unique memories and inspire your partner with some cheeky ideas.

If you need a little help on how to have a successful bridal boudoir shoot, here are some of our top recommendations you should follow.

1. Choose well-made lingerie

You’re likely going to be invited into a boudoir studio filled with unique designs, so it only makes sense to wear something beautiful for the shoot. 

You could consider making a lingerie registry for your upcoming bridal shower. You can also buy something sexy on your own. 

You can take along your new pieces on your honeymoon and use them at a later time!

Choose well-made lingerie with quality fabrics. The quality will definitely show. If you’re in doubt, speak to your photographer since they will likely have plenty of ideas they can share with you.

2. Embrace your body and don't worry about your weight!

One of the biggest concerns women have before a boudoir shoot is their body. It’s understandable you want to look your best and tone your body, the reality is that you don’t need to for a boudoir shoot.

Instead, embrace yourself and allow your photographer to create stunning pictures with flattering poses that highlight the best parts of your body. An experienced Denver boudoir photographer will have a whole library of poses you can pull off and look stunning in.

3. Find the right photographer to work with

A simple quick search online will reveal dozens, perhaps hundreds of photographers you could work with. However, these pictures are going to be around for a long time, so it’s incredibly important you work with an experienced boudoir photographer that has a portfolio and is willing to listen and coach to you.

You don’t want to be uncomfortable during your session. Instead, you want to look and feel natural in your photos and outfits. Of course, listening, getting advice from your photographer throughout the process is great because they will help you put together an amazing gift!

4. Meet with a hair / makeup stylist and try wearing your hair down!

There’s nothing sexier than bedroom hair for a boudoir photo shoot. Pamper yourself with getting hair and makeup so you look absolutely stunning in your photos. You can go glam or have a natural makeup look. Make sure you talk to the stylist about what you want so you look glam, but still yourself.

Don't be afraid to have the stylist fix something you don't like. Make sure you talk to tell about what you like and dislike so they can get the look right. Hair and makeup stylists prefer for you to be happy and don't mind changing something for you!

The last thing you should do is have fun!
