There are tickets to see his favorite sports team, a bottle of his favorite whiskey, perhaps an engraved flask, or a watch… but why would you settle? Why would you settle for something ‘nice’ when you could give him the incredible gift he’s ever gotten? A gift you already know he wants: YOU! Let’s give him a gift that will leave him speechless.
He already chose you; he already got down on one knee and asked you to be his bride. He loves the wave in your hair, the curve of your back, or the sparkle in your eye when you throw on his favorite hoodie and snuggle on the couch with your morning coffee. Why not capture all of that in a boudoir session, and then gift it to him on your wedding day, or even as a honeymoon present?
Boudoir means ‘a woman’s bedroom,’ or intimate space, and that’s exactly what boudoir sessions are. They are *your* private space where you can choose to share beautiful, expressive parts of yourself with your groom. Throw on his old college t-shirt with soft tendrils around your face or break out your wedding night lingerie and I will create tasteful portraits that will make you feel amazing and that he will want to look at again and again.
You have total control. I wouldn’t be a Louisiana Bridal Boudoir Photographer though if I didn’t suggest how cute that oversized New Orleans Saints jersey paired with a cute pair of boots! I am here to meet you at your comfort level bringing out your sexiest, most gorgeous you.
A boudoir session is a fun and fantastic way to do a dry run on your wedding day hairstyle. It gives you a chance to feel gorgeous while seeing how your style will photograph on the big day. We do full hair and make-up before your session, pampering you and creating a comfortable space where you can be as adventurous as you want to be all while feeling confident. I enjoy adding some of your wedding details into your session. Maybe a backlit photo showcasing your wedding heels as your veil trails down over them: that’s a one-of-a-kind keepsake.
A boudoir session as a groom’s gift is also a fantastic way to boost your confidence! Many women haven’t had a professional portrait taken of themselves since their high school senior photos, so a boudoir session is a fantastic way to be creative and feel beautiful before your wedding day portraits.
Let’s talk about the presentation! Depending on the session, and the portraits we create, some brides like to have a large canvas designed to be hung in their bedroom, their shared dressing room, or on the groom’s side a walk-in closet. Of course, I am a big fan of canvas portraits, rich in color and texture and beautiful, but I also want to tell you about a popular gift, the “little black book” for the groom.
In this book is a tasteful collection of portraits you have created just for him, professional printed and bound, a keepsake he will have for many anniversaries to come. Created with the love you have for him, with the anticipation of being his forever person, a boudoir session is a perfect gift for your groom! Let’s get you on the books: I can’t wait to show you how great you’re going to look.
