We feel you...wedding planning is stressful. A bridal boudoir shoot is a fun and beautiful way to de-stress and do something for YOU. Not only will your partner love getting the photos as a wedding gift, but you’ll also have the photos to treasure together for a lifetime. Whether you’re getting married or looking for a unique way to celebrate an anniversary, a bridal boudoir shoot is the perfect way to let your inner bombshell shine. We do bridal boudoir photo sessions for anyone in the Dallas area - brides, grooms and even couples! Read on for 7 tips and inspiration for a flawless boudoir bridal shoot.

  1. Tip #1 is to pamper yourself! Yes, you heard that right! Your bridal boudoir shoot is about YOU, so go get that mani/pedi and let our talented team of hair and makeup artists give you that glowing bridal look.

  2. Look for inspiration. Prior to your consultation, take some time to find inspiration by looking through our bridal boudoir albums or browsing Pinterest and magazines to discover what you like (and don’t like)!

  3. Plan your outfits. We encourage our clients to be creative and think outside the box. Bring your wedding dress, veil, wedding shoes, and any other jewelry or props that will make your bridal boudoir photos pop! A variety of lingerie is also recommended, including garters, corsets and negligees. You’ll also have the option to choose some pieces from our in-studio boudoir closet!

  4. Honor your significant other by bringing something of his/hers to your bridal boudoir shoot. And old sports jersey, his cowboy hat, button down dress shirts, or a piece of jewelry he bought you, adding those props to your shoot will make it that much more special for your partner.

  5. Think about texture. Nuances that bring a boudoir bridal shoot to life are all the pretty and flirty textures of bridal wear. Lace veils, satin or silk undergarments, tulle skirts, etc. The variation of textures will really give your photos that “bridal feel”.

  6. If you’re a traditional bride and incorporating anything old, new, borrowed or blue, bring those items to use during your bridal boudoir shoot! It’s those meaningful and special pieces that make your photos unique.

  7. Last but not least...RELAX! You’ve got this! Our team of photographers is truly the best at striking the balance between pushing you out of your comfort zone while respecting your wishes and ideas. Your bridal boudoir photo shoot can be as sexy or sultry as you want it to be, or not at all! The choice is entirely yours because this is YOUR bridal boudoir shoot and we want to bring your vision to life!
