Every wedding season many brides get stuck on what to give to their fiance for their wedding day. While the traditional gifts such as custom cuff links or a Rolex watch with a personal engraving never falls short, many brides are discovering an exciting new trend that has their men thanking them well past their 5th wedding anniversary.
Boudoir photography is a sexy new trend that's gaining in popularity right now with many brides. Boudoir photos are usually taken wearing either just a little, or well, nothing at all. They're hardly X-rated though, but rather PG-13 -- as in classic pinup-inspired pics, or what the pros call 'implied nudes.' That means you're not wearing anything, but you're also not showing off anything either (think shot from the back, or lying on your stomach).
Who takes these kinds of photos?
Many wedding photographers are now offering Boudoir shoots as part of their service offerings and can be easily added to your wedding day package. If you love your wedding photographer, but aren't comfortable with taking your clothes off in front of him in such an intimate and private setting, find a woman photographer who offers these types of shoots (I'm sure your wedding day photographer will understand and give you a good referral).
Not sure what to wear?
Well, you know your man so I'm sure you have an idea of what he likes to see you in. If not, enlist the help of one of your best friends to help with wardrobe selection ... less is more, in this case. Just remember, you have to feel sexy to look sexy so select something that you feel great in and shows off your best assets (no pun intended).
So, if you've been hitting the gym with Tammy Foxx, the ultimate bridal fitness guru, or have lost weight from a bit of planning stress, why not rock that awesome body and create an amazing album of beautiful shots for your husband-to-be? Believe me, when that album is delivered to him before the ceremony, he'll be so blown away that he'll forget all about how much your custom engagement ring cost. After all, men should never underestimate the power of female sex appeal.
If you are having trouble locating a photographer who you feel comfortable with, please contact me and I'll connect you to the perfect fit.
