Bridal Boudoir - His Gift or Yours?

A bridal boudoir shoot can be as simple or as creative as you wish. I know one bride who requested 30 cropped "sneak peeks" from her album. Then 30 days before her wedding, she laid out one photo a day to give her fiancee a really good excuse to get out of bed in the morning. She gave him a leather-bound album with a special message on the spine the morning of their ceremony. One of the most personal gifts you can give to your significant other, bridal boudoir is becoming a huge trend. Its another wonderful way of freezing that moment in time as you relish the excitement of getting married.

If you want an album or keepsake box to arrive before your actual ceremony, its better to plan your shoot one-to-two months in advance. Your photographer has pre-planning to do as well as editing your photos and sending them away to the printer. Already have a Pinterest board for your ceremony and party? Start one for your boudoir session. This will give your photographer an idea of what you are looking for and help plan your shoot during your initial consultation.

Many brides book a hair and makeup trial before their wedding and this is the perfect time to schedule your boudoir. You already look amazing so you might as well take advantage of it. This can also help your shots meld somewhat seamlessly into your bedroom wedding portraits if you wish. If you choose to go this route and do not need our hair and makeup services, Catch a Kiss will offer you either a discounted rate or more shooting time. More shooting time does mean more variety of shots for your album. Your choice.

If you are investing in beautiful lingerie under your dress, you already have your photo shoot outfit. Some brides wear lingerie they were gifted at their bridal shower or bachelorette party while others simply use a veil as a sexy wraparound. {Another emerging trend is boudoir bachelorette parties but that's for another post.}
