Bridal boudoir in Dallas is a huge thing and it's important that you pick a photographer that will match your aesthetic and vision. Here at Wonderland Boudoir in Dallas we love doing Bridal Boudoir! Its fun, sexy, and a great gift for your husband to be.
Here we have Ciarra as our bride. The wedding dress is from Simply Bridal. Isn't this dress breathtaking? Would you believe me if I told you that the purchase price of this dress is less than $500?! That's without a discount! The name of this dress is Lianne and can be found HERE! To know more details about this dress and her full look I did a really detailed post last week about how to style a Boudoir Wedding Session.
Today I wanted to provide a full spread of Ciara's Bridal Boudoir session and 4 Tips for a Successful Bridal Boudoir Session
Tips for a Successful Bridal Session
1.) Include the Dress
You spent a large sum of money on a dress that you may only wear once. This dress may end up living in your closet until it’s donated it or passes on to a daughter or a family friend. I think taking as many pictures in your dress, even prior to your wedding is a good idea.
A boudoir session is an excellent place to get a lot of detailed shots of your dress. A wedding dress has tons of detailing and it's important to get as much detailing as possible. Also, having a boudoir session done in your gown allows you to show off you sensual and sexy time to your future husband in a way that expresses commitment to only him. You have most likely dieted and worked out to get the perfect body for you dress. It’s your time to shine and look amazing in your dress.
2.) Lingerie that Matches the Dress
Styling and aesthetics are everything in photoshoots. This isn't the first time I have stated this and it won't be the last. For your boudoir session to be impactful it's important to have clothes complement each other, the decor of the room, and the reason for the session. Most importantly, your lingerie should complement your dress.
3.) Accessories Make your Boudoir Experience Unique
How you decide to pair your accessories to your dress is an individual decision that will be based off many factors. One of those factors being your personal style. However, I have to say that if your lingerie and dress are really detailed then it may be better to not go with too much bling. Yes, I know the Texan ideology is that there can never be too much bling… but in the case of your boudoir photos, it can.
On the other hand if your dress and lingerie are really plain then bring the bling on!
4.) DO NOT TAN or GET A SPRAY TAN THE DAY OF OR BEFORE YOUR BOUDOIR SESSION
Getting a tan or a spray tan a day or two ahead of your boudoir session is a complete mistake!
Spray tans have a tendency to leave residue. If you are wearing white then the last thing you want to do before your big day is have orange marks over you dress or our sets. If you must have a spray tan please schedule to have it done at least 5 days before your planned boudoir session.
Tans are also not a good idea because they have a tendency to make you look orange in photos. This causes a huge issue in post processing work for the photos and they may not be able to correct your skin complexion due to the unnatural skin darkening.
I hope these four tips helped you out before your boudoir session. Including your wedding dress, accessorizing, wearing the right lingerie, and not tanning before your session will help lead to a successful bridal boudoir session.
