Bridal Boudoir is the Ultimate Groom's Gift

Bridal Boudoir dallas Texas

Recently I participated in the Dallas Bridal Show and a common question was, “Why should I do wedding boudoir?”

Wedding boudoir is a fantastic gift that you can give to your husband to be.  It’s incredibly intimate, very vulnerable, and extremely sexy.  Many men would love to be gifted a series of beautifully curated sexy images of his wife that were created with him and only him in mind.  Today I will give you 4 reasons why you should have a wedding boudoir session done for your wedding day.  


4 Reason Why Bridal Boudoir is the Best Groom's Gift, EVER!

1. bridal boudoir is a Great Way To Get Detailed Photos of Your Wedding Dress

An essential part of bridal boudoir is getting shots in your wedding dress.  While you will have the opportunity to have pictures taken of you in the wedding dress on your wedding day most of the time they will not be as detailed as they would be in bridal boudoir.  

Remember, the wedding dress commemorates a number of things.  One of those things is dedicating yourself to your partner in the most intimate way for the rest of your life.  Bridal boudoir is just that, intimate.  Your bridal boudoir photographer will capture beautiful photos of you in your dress from veil all the way to shoes.  You will get the stitching, lace, and the minuet details that make up your complete wedding day gown and overall look.

Depending on your taste and comfort level the boudoir photographer will slowly have you undress out of your wedding dress while they photograph the process.  In many cases  slowly revealing you in beautifully curated lingerie that matches your gown.  I always suggest leaving the veil on in a number of photos because it adds a sense of sexiness, uniqueness, and points of interesting texture to your photos.  Done correctly, the veil is a great tool to make your photos unique to your session.  

You spent A LOT of money on your wedding dress.  This is a gown that you, ideally, plan on wearing only once to show the people closest to you how important your partner is.  According to the XO Group the average wedding dress cost $1200. This is probably the most expensive dress that you will buy in your life so it’s important to get the most out of it.  


2.) bridal boudoir is An Intimate & Personalized Gift for Him

Bridal Boudoir Dallas Texas

Your partner will love sexy, classy, and intimate photos of you as a groom's gift.  While partaking in the bridal show I couldn’t tell you how many times a husband whispered in the ear of their soon-to-be wife how they would love sexy photos of them as a groom's gift.  

At times it can be hard for men to express what they want to their partners.  Especially when it comes to something as sexy as boudoir.  Imagine the excitement on his face when he sees something like this.  If you’re concerned about what your man might think have a conversation about it.  Or perhaps jokingly suggest the idea and see how he responds.  


 

3.) The Hottest Version of You Yet!

Many women work REALLY hard to look amazing in their wedding dress.  Brides put in 6-12 months worth of hard workouts to make sure they look amazing in those wedding day photos.  The training, the gym membership, and the hardcore eating regiment won't be unnoticed.  All that effort shouldn’t be just for the big day.  Have it immortalized in a boudoir series that you can always go back as a bookmark and remind yourself how gorgeous and beautiful you felt during that time period.  You worked very hard for this.  This bridal boudoir session will be a prize for you to commemorate that.

4.)  You are also doing this for You

Yes, one of the major reasons, if not the most important, is that you are doing bridal boudoir for you.  Boudoir is not your 80’s glamour shots.  It’s not just simply you in lingerie in front of a photographer for 90 minutes.  There is so much that goes into this for a woman.  

You are baring some of the most intimate parts for yourself. It's time to celebrate you in all your glory.  Many women go through times of insecurity and self doubt.  Your wedding should not, and will not, be one of those times. It’s empowering.  It’s fun. It's liberating. There is no shame doing something fun for you... of course you will be sharing. the photos


HOW TO PREPARE FOR A BRIDAL BOUDOIR SESSION

1.) When should you schedule a session?

If you plan on doing bridal boudoir as a gift to your significant other I suggest doing it no later than three months before your wedding day.  Lets be real, your wedding date will creep up on you and boudoir photography is not something that you want to rush or do last minute.  Especially if you plan on buying frames or books as a groom's gift.

Dallas Bridal Boudoir

For example, some of the books we provide at Wonderland Boudoir are handmade in Italy.  When I say handmade I mean for real for real made by hand.  It takes up to 1 month to get these high quality Italian leather made books back from Italy.  Trust me, I cannot rush the process (I know from first hand experience).  

On top of getting the book done, as in life, you have to always expect for the unexpected.  Booking a number of months before your wedding gives you buffer time in the event that the unimaginable happens.  

2.) What should I buy from my bridal boudoir session?

A lot if this depends your taste, needs, and decor.  Many women get frames of themselves from their boudoir session.   Depending on the photos I have most woman place their photos in their closets or master bathrooms.   Books are a great option too.  Books can either be displayed or placed in the master bedroom as decoration.  One of our Italian made books comes with it’s own case that is perfect for inconspicuous display.

Sometimes I have women who have husbands who travel a lot.  They typically purchase a big book and an accordion book so they can always have sexy photos with him.

3.) How do I present the book as a wedding gift?

There are a number of ways to present your photos and book.  I had a sorority sister of mine send a sexy photo each day before the wedding day.  The morning of the wedding she had delivered a full book to him of her session.  He was more than happy to see these beautiful photos of his wife.

Bridal Boudoir Lookbook plus 4 Tips for a Successful Bridal Boudoir Session.  Dallas Bridal Boudoir Photography

 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

Bridal Boudoir Lookbook plus 4 Tips for a Successful Bridal Boudoir Session.  Dallas Bridal Boudoir Photography

 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

Bridal Boudoir Lookbook plus 4 Tips for a Successful Bridal Boudoir Session.  Dallas Bridal Boudoir Photography

 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

Bridal Boudoir Lookbook plus 4 Tips for a Successful Bridal Boudoir Session.  Dallas Bridal Boudoir Photography

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.

I know... You want to see more photos of Ciarra so lets go!

What You Should Buy from Your Boudoir Session

One of the most common questions we at Wonderland Boudoir get asked is, “What do I do with my boudoir photos after they are taken?”  Today we are going to answer that question by showing you our four different photo albums and multiple sized frames that you should consider with your boudoir production.

Which Photo Albums Should I Buy from my Boudoir Session?

8x8 Photo Album Plush Album

Imagine an Instagram feed in 3D.  This is what our 8x8 photo alum offers.  This 20 page book boast vibrant photography paper for an authentic and old school feel.  What sets this book apart is the square shape and plush cover.  The front cover has a 2x2 cut out for which ever photo you want to the show off the most. 

8x11.25 Hardcover Album

This 20 page portrait sized photo album also boast 100% true photography paper.  This is perfect because it showcase true and vibrant color.  One of my favorite attributes of this book is that you can customize the hardcover book with a horizontal photo.  The book always lays flat which is perfect for two page spreads.

8x11.25 Acrylic Covered Italian Handcrafted Photo Album

This is my personal favorite book.  This hand crafted Italian album takes six weeks to create.  It’s worth every second.   This 30 page portrait sized album is just breathtaking.  You can feel the weight of it’s quality when you hold it in your hands.  This portrait sizes album is made with PVC pages to ensure quality that will last for years.   Yes, I know that you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s it cover, but the acrylic cover adds a touch a fantasy and flair that can’t be found anywhere else.   While you may want to keep this boudoir book all to yourself at least you will have a beautiful cover to admire.

8x11.25 Italian Handcrafted Book with Private Box and Customized Casing

This book is the real MVP.  It’s a fan favorite.  Just like our Acrylic covered book this masterpiece is handcrafted in Italy.  It’s comes with a beautiful hardcover casing that you can customize to your liking.  My favorite part of the book is the embossed graving that you can have stitched into the cover.  The pages are also PVC grade and will stand the test of time.  This 30 pages book is my number one seller and women love to give it as gifts.  If you do want it please keep it mind it takes six weeks to create and get back from our Italian Team.

 

What are the Best Frames to Buy from My Boudoir Session?

We offer a number of frames in different sizes that will fit every space.  We have the 11x14, 16x20 canvas, Matted frame, 20x30 Matted Frame, 20x30 Canvas, 36x48 Canvas Print. 

Our number one seller is our 20x30 matt frame! I know!  The photo is huge but many women hang the photos in their bedrooms, closets, and bathrooms.  I believe that your boudoir photos should be hung up be placed on display.

You worked so hard to look amazing in your photos you should do more than have digital copies that will live in your computer on on your phone.  You should display in them in a beautiful frame or if you want to be more conservative create an album  for them.  Your significant other will appreciate it.  Men are such visual creatures and having a full book or a single frame of your someowhere special in your room will mean the world to him.

 

To see the prices of each one of our albums and frames please visist our investment page!

4 Awesome Ways to Present Your Boudoir Photos as a Gift

4 Awesome Ways to Present Your Boudoir Photos as Gifts. Giving your Boudoir Photos as a present can be weird. Here we give you 4 ways to make it fun for both parties!

You finally got your boudoir photos back.  You have the album you purchased, the digital photos in hand, and maybe even a frame, but how do you present these beautiful gifts to your husband?  Today we have four unique ways on how to give your sexy boudoir gifts to your significant other. 

Presenting Boudoir as a Wedding Gift

I shot my sorority sister's boudoir photos as a wedding gift to her and her husband. She gave her photos to her, then fiancé at the time, in the best manner ever.   They decided that six months before thire wedding they were going to be abstinent.  On the wedding night she would give herself to him.   She said the six months was a real struggle, but they had made it.

 Well,  the week of their wedding each day she decided she would send him a boudoir photo every day to his phone until the big day.  He was so happy to get each one of those photos that he couldn’t wait to leave the reception to claim is bride!   Trust me.  I got the biggest thank you ever from both parties.  

Boudoir as a Valentine’s Day Present

Set up a scavenger hunt for your man.  Use your boudoir photos as they cards where the message can be found.   With each clue make sure each  picture becomes more and more sexy.  Have the scavenger hunt end in the bedroom where he finds you with an album and wearing the lingerie that was featured in all the photos. 

Boudoir Photos as a Birthday Present

Many people these day have huge screen TVs.  Have a slide show playing for him when he comes home that features all your beautiful photos from your boudoir session.  Don’t be in the room when he comes in.  After the slide show is complete slowly walk into the room with a small birthday cake and perhaps one of your favorite photos framed that he can keep in his room.

A Boudoir Present Just because the Day Ends in "Y"

You don’t need a reason to have a boudoir session.  Do it because you want to not because something special is about to happen.  Live life to the fullest.   Therefore give your man an unexpected surprise just because he makes you happy.

I know this is modern times and most men don’t carry around briefcases anymore, but most do carry around backpacks or messenger bags to hold their laptops for travel. I suggest buying an album and slipping it into his backpack the night before.  When he opens his bag the next day he will get the surprise of his life. 

Just make sure you know what he plans are for that day.  You don’t want him to head into a very important meeting with the CEO, CFO, or COO and your boudoir book falls open in front of everyone.  Please take his day plans into consideration to avoid any embarrassment. 

I hope that these 4 ideas help inspire you on creative ways to present your boudoir session.  No matter how you do it he will appreciate the time and effort  you put into making something special for him. 

In the comments below please let me know of any other creative ways to present your boudoir photos to your beau.

Wonderland Boudoir is a Boudoir Photography studio in Dallas, Texas and we believe bridal boudoir is an excellent wedding gift for your future spouse.  Today we are going to show you a number of excellent outfits that would be great for your bridal boudoir session.  Later this month you will be able to see more photos of each woman’s session!

Most of these pieces can be found at Apricot Lane of Dallas.  The wedding dress can be found on SimplyBridal.com.  The lingerie on Ciarra can be found at Victoria’s Secrets.  All these pieces are great for a summer bridal session.  They are light, airy, and sexy. 

Ciarra

How to Style a Bridal Boudoir Session, Dallas Boudoir Photography, Boudoir Photography Dallas, Wedding Boudoir, Style, Fashion

If you guys watched Wednesdays’s boudoir bridal video then you will remember Ciarra.  Ciarra did an amazing job in the videos.  For Ciarra we went for light, airy, and fun. 

Wedding Dress: The Wedding Dress was provided by Simply Bridal.  It’s the Lianne gown.  This is a beautiful summer gown.  The halter allows the bride to be comfortable and not over heat in an outside summer wedding. The material of the dress is chiffon.   The silver band around the waist is beautiful as it glistens against the sunlight bringing all the attention back to the bride.  The train is full and dramatic.  This Grecian inspired gown will having you feeling like a Greek Goddess as you walk down the aisle. 

Shoes: The Simply Bridal wedding dress is so dramatic we decided to have Ciarra rock nude strappy heels and a bit of bling on the toes and ankles. 

Accessories: Since the dress is a halter we kept it very simple with the jewelry pieces.  We decided to go with dramatic chandelier earrings that were more on the nude and pastel side.  On her fingers Ciarra rocked her engagement ring. 

Makeup & Hair: It’s so rare that I get to work with women who have short pixie cuts. I have to say that Ciarra’s haircut really worked with the dress and outfit.  Jill, the makeup artist, added a long bang to the front that shaped her head.  The lips are a pouty nude pink color and the eyes are a pastel smoky eye that really brings out her blue eyes.

Wedding Boudoir Look

Lingerie & Kimono: The lingerie for this shot was from Victoria’s Secret .  The pastel blue works for Ciarra’s fair skin and adds that element of “something blue.” With the soft light coming into the studio it really adds a taste of timeless beauty. 

The kimono was from Apricot Love of Dallas.  A kimono is a perfect way of looking sexy while still covering up.  The nude kimono and beautiful botanical flowers really highlights Ciarra’s skin, accessories, and make up. 

The color palate here was pastel pink, pastel blue, and gold.  This is beautiful combination for a summer boudoir session.

Jenna

How to Style a Bridal Boudoir Session, Dallas Boudoir Photography, Boudoir Photography Dallas, Wedding Boudoir, Style, Fashion

We went at little more Boho with Jenna.  Summer is a great time to be free and comfortable.  Alexis styled Jenna in a long white lace maxi dress and a black kimono with cream detailing. 

Dress & Kimono:  Both the dress and kimono are compliments of Apricot Lane Dallas.  The dress is beautiful and has a long split that allows Jenna’s right knee to peek through.  The kimono is roomy and sits comfortably off her shoulders. 

Accessories:  Alexis decided to stack the accessories and did an excellent job doing so.  She arranged the necklaces by chain length. This not only helps highlight each piece but allows them not to tangle.  The long necklace has a bit of dramatic flair and amps up the boho realness of the outfit.  The crystal pendent adds a pinch of Gypsy. 

Let’s talk about those bangles though!  I am one who LOVES rock jewelry. I love the way that Alexis stacked the bangles on Jenna’s arm.  Again, a fun way to add texture to such a low key outfit. 

We can’t see them in this photo, but Jenna rocked a pair of starburst stud earrings.

Hair & Makeup: Jill decided to be a little more playful with this outfit.  Adding the dark mascara really made Jenna’s sky blue eyes pop (and yes, those are her REAL lashes, I know JEALOUS).  Jill gave Jenna gold lipstick and, like Ciarra, kept her makeup simple on the face. 

Second Outfit

All the accessories and makeup stayed the same.  The only thing that changed was the way Alexis styled Jenna in a nude lingerie set.  There isn’t any padding and since the nude matches her skin it makes the look even more sexy because it adds an idea of implied nudity without actually getting naked or posing without clothes. 

Karla

How to Style a Bridal Boudoir Session, Dallas Boudoir Photography, Boudoir Photography Dallas, Wedding Boudoir, Style, Fashion

For Karla we went for a Moroccan inspired look.  Her beautiful complexion allows us to be really playful with color and style. 

Outfit: For the top we used a swimsuit top. YES!  Swimsuits make excellent pieces for boudoir.  Swimsuits are often overlooked because people associate them with water and not the bedroom.  That’s a mistake because there are plenty of cute swimsuits that would be great for a boudoir sessions.

Believe it or not the bottoms are a series of scarves knotted together to create the illusion of a skirt!  I know! That why Alexis was onset because she’s able to see outside the box.  It’s important to be as creative as possible with your fashion because styling will really make your photos pop for boudoir. 

Accessories:  We threw everything on her including the kitchen sink (Okay, what does that really mean anyway?).  Karla has such beautiful broad shoulders so she’s able to handle a lot of layering.  Her body was a blank canvas.  Sometimes too much color and texture is a good thing.

Her tattoo just added to the fun of the outfit.  A lot of girls believe that they need to cover up their tattoos for a boudoir session.  I’m here to tell you that’s simply not true.  Do not cover up your tattoo if you love it.  A tattoo is part of who you are so it’s important to let it be an important element in your session.

We also added the huge rock bracelets that you saw in Jenna’s set in Karla’s. 

Hair & Makeup: Jill went with a hard press with Karla’s hair and styled at an asymmetrical angle.  Her makeup was a mix of wine and burgundy.  Jill made the center of the lips a deeper wine color which really made Karla’s eyes pop against the gold eyeliner.  I thought that was just so damn cool.  Makeup artist are so talented. 

Second Look

How to Style a Bridal Boudoir Session, Dallas Boudoir Photography, Boudoir Photography Dallas, Wedding Boudoir, Style, Fashion

For Karla’s second look we just brought it back a bit without losing the element of color. Alexis chose a colorful and festive bib necklace paired with a sheer linen blouse.  We traded out the series of skirts for one huge floral scarf.

Jolesa

How to Style a Bridal Boudoir Session, Dallas Boudoir Photography, Boudoir Photography Dallas, Wedding Boudoir, Style, Fashion

Jolesa just KILLED this shoot!  I have to say that this look was one of my favorites of the day.  Jolesa embodies a powerful version of sexy.  When she walks in the room there is an energy one simply cannot deny.  This outfit really helped bring that out.

Lingerie & Kimono: Everything here was found at Apricot Lane Dallas.  The white kimono really pops against Jolesa’s caramel complexion.  The orange lacing of the kimono helps highlight her warm undertones without it being too much.  While Jenna wore a nude lingerie set Jolesa is wearing white version.  Her bottoms are a fun take on scallop shorts that were really popular last summer.  The material is a comfortable that's perfect a boudoir set or for warm summer evenings watching the sunset. 

Accessories:  The layering game is real y’all! Alexis followed the same layer technique she did with all the previous outfits.  She stacked the jewelry based on chain length. Silver really pops against darker skin so placing these beautiful pieces against Jolesa’s skin was a no brainer.  Unlike the other looks Alexis chose to have her rock one single bracelet instead of a stack. 

Makeup & Hair:  Jolesa styled her own hair.  She’s rocking a badass Mohawk with gold tips.  This really works for her because she has a face that can carry a look like this.  It’s very important to have strong facial features if you are considering going for a pixie cut or Mohawk.

Lips were a stain wine color with an eye look to match.  The eyes were are a light wine and pink smokey eye. 

Second Look

How to Style a Bridal Boudoir Session, Dallas Boudoir Photography, Boudoir Photography Dallas, Wedding Boudoir, Style, Fashion

For Jolesa’s second look we kept the same makeup because is transitioned perfectly.  When picking out a makeup look it’s important to pick one that works with multiple looks or is an easy update without having to redo your entire face.  Most of time the makeup artist will do your lighter look first and then move you on to a more intense face. 

Lingerie & Kimono:   I love the black and burgundy in this look because it sest a more moody tone for this session. While this is a very strong look the kimono balances a very light weight and feminine impact.  Deciding against wearing shoes makes Jolesa more approachable in her photos. 

Accessories:  Alexis decided on an intense statement necklace for this outfit.  This works as a very hard piece of armor that adds to the African Goddess vibe she’s showering us with.

That’s it!

Don’t worry!  You guys will see more photos from each one of these women later this month.

I want to thank Jill for doing all the hair, Alexis for doing all the styling, Simply Bridal for the gorgeous gown, and Apricot Lane for all the beautiful clothes for this series!

That was cheesy).  Spend the afternoon being pampered by an amazing artist and allow the photographer to make you feel like a supermodel.  After your last girlfriend finishes her shoot you guys can catch a Lyft and celebrate a night on the town while looking like celebrities.
  3. Birthday Celebrations: What better way to celebrate a milestone!  Are you turning the Dirty 30? Perhaps the Fabulous 40?  The 50 is the new 25? (Hey! Even Madonna kissed Drake!) This is a great venue for a birthday party.  Why not celebrate the woman you have become over the years?  A boudoir party is a great way to really embrace your beauty and see the hot girl your friends see in you every day.
  4. Bonding Events:  Bonding events are great team building exercises.  Women own companies book boudoir parties to help teach their teams to let go of any flaws or insecurities they have about themselves.
  5. Girls’ Day: This is a lot like Girls’ Night Out… expect it’s during the day.  Lets be honest, some women are mothers and don’t have the ability to stay out all night when she has mouths to love and spend time with.  Therefore book an early boudoir party and then finish the day off with brunch. During brunch you guys can chat about your personal experiences and still be home in plenty of time to have one on one with your kids and husband.

5 Reasons why Boudoir Parties are Important

A #Boudoir #Party is a great idea for bachelorette parties, bride gifts, groom's gifts, birthday parties, or a girls night out. Here is why you should book a #boudoir Party
  1. They are fun!  I know boudoir sounds super intimidating but they aren’t.  They are really fun and allow the subject to let loose. 
  2. Great bonding experience with your friends:  Boudoir Parties are enjoyable because ladies are often laughing and cracking jokes on each other while simultaneously cheering each other on.
  3. Great start to a wild evening: Plus you won’t have to worry about hair and makeup. Bachelorette Parties or Girls’ Night Out can be super exhausting because you have to do your hair, makeup, and then decide on what to wear.  After you look at yourself in the mirror the only thing you will want to do is go out and show the world how amazing you look. 
  4. Your friends can be your biggest cheerleaders:  I know I mentioned it before, but it’s not something you should look over.  Lets’ face it.  Having supportive friends around you will be amazing boost for you confidence.   Just imagine having  your BFF cheering you on, making you laughing, and just having a good time. 
  5. Get out of your comfort zone:  There are times we just need to get out of our comfort zone.  We have to do things that we never thought we would do. A boudoir session with you closest girlfriend in a safe and controlled environment is a great way to do that.

 

How Does a Boudoir Party Work?

A #Boudoir #Party is a great idea for bachelorette parties, bride gifts, groom's gifts, birthday parties, or a girls night out. Here is why you should book a #boudoir Party
  • Every boudoir studio is going to have a different process.  When booking with Wonderland Boudoir you must have a minimum of 4 girls with a maximum of 6.  If you have a total of 6 girls each person pays about $100 per boudoir session! 
  • Each party is given a complementary bottle of champagne (as long as you are of legal age.  We do reserve the right to card anyone who looks under 40 years old or cut anyone off.). 
  • Each girl will have their hair and makeup done by our amazing team. 
  • The background we use is our regular White Studio. 
  • Each girl is given a 30 minute session. 

 

When do we get our Boudoir Party Photos Back?!

After everyone’s edits are complete (usually 30 business days) each person is given a private gallery to pick their final photos for editing, albums, and frames.

Depending on the number of photos purchased the photos will either be emailed or you can come back to the studio and pick up your USB file and any additional products purchased.  All digital copies can be printed up to an 8x12.

Please Note: I DO NOT SNAIL MAIL BOUDOIR PHOTOS!  There have been too many times were USBs have been lost by the USPS and due to the sensitive nature of the photos I require clients purchasing 6 or more photos to come to the studio and pick up their digital copies.  Wonderland Boudoir is not responsible for any lost or stolen photos.
