5 Reasons Why You Should Book a Bridal Boudoir Session

Bridal boudoir sessions have gained popularity in the last few years as more and more brides decide to take the plunge and have sensual photographs taken of themselves. And for good reason, as these boudoir sessions are all about making every bride feel her absolute, most confident self. 

With timeless, classic, and tasteful portraits, a bridal boudoir session leaves brides feeling empowered by celebrating her true beauty. 

In case you need more convincing, here are my top five reasons why you should absolutely book a bridal boudoir session before your wedding.

It’s Empowering.

A boudoir session can make you feel vulnerable, anxious, and self-conscious before you head into the shoot. But, trust me, as soon as you warm up in front of the camera, you’ll start to feel your confidence grow. A boudoir photography session is such an empowering moment in your life, especially as a bride-to-be. You’ll feel so much more confident and self-assured on your big day after looking back on your boudoir photos. And you’ll really see that you are absolutely enough without having to change a single thing.

A Bridal Boudoir Session is a Celebration of Beauty and Self-Love.

In today’s world, women are constantly bombarded with pictures of models and actresses who look gorgeous at every hour of the day. And it can leave the rest of us who aren’t always in the spotlight feeling a little self-conscious about our bodies. 

But the beautiful thing about a boudoir session is that it’s a celebration of your beauty and self-love. It doesn’t matter what age, what size, what curves, what birthmarks or stretch marks or dimples you may have. All of that is absolutely gorgeous, and it’s what makes you you! A boudoir session will embrace your beauty and capture it in beautiful, tasteful, and classic photographs that you’ll be able to celebrate for years to come. Each time you look at your photographs, you’ll be reminded of how stunning you felt that day, and it will help refresh your sense of self-love.

Bridal Boudoir Photos Make a Wonderful Gift for Your Fiancé.

As I talked about earlier, a boudoir session is a great gift for yourself because you’ll spend time celebrating your body and your beauty. But a session also makes a great gift for your fiancé, too! You can give your partner an album or even small prints of your session. It will be an incredibly special and intimate gift that the both of you can enjoy for years to come. You can give the album or prints to your partner either the night before the wedding or the night of your wedding after the celebration is over!

You Will Feel More Comfortable In Front of the Camera.

Brides often tell me they’re not used to being in front of the camera when it comes time for their wedding day. 

One great thing about these sessions is that you’ll feel so much more comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day once you’ve already had your boudoir photographs taken. After you’ve been in front of the camera, having photographs taken on your wedding day will be a piece of cake (pun intended)! You will already have a trusting relationship with your photographer, which means you’ll know you can relax when you’re in front of their camera. And that always results in better images!

You’ll Be Able to Reminisce For Years to Come. 

Just like with your actual wedding images, your bridal boudoir photos will be a cherished keepsake for years to come. While it’s not the actual big day, it is just as important, as your boudoir session will mark another moment in your journey to your wedding day. Whether you choose to gift photos to your fiance or whether you decide to keep them just to yourself, you’ll be able to reminisce on your photos and preserve those precious memories of how amazing, confident, and loved you felt.

You Deserve It. 

Wedding planning is a stressful process. From getting to detail appointments on time, to meeting with your vendors, to the actual vision planning of the big day itself, planning for a wedding of any kind absolutely takes a toll on you. 

A boudoir session is a time to focus on just you, considering only you and your photographer will be in the room. What better way to de-stress and relax than by boosting your confidence and celebrating your body and your beauty with a photography session all to yourself! 

Ultimately, a bridal boudoir session is a beautiful way to document this joyous moment in your life in the days leading up to your wedding. You’ll feel empowered and confident. Whether you decide to turn your session into a gift for your fiance, or you keep the images just for yourself, you’ll have timeless photographs to cherish for years to come.
