A bridal boudoir session is a great way to celebrate your wedding and the best time to capture your glowing beauty. Our message behind this session is to let you know that a bridal boudoir session is pretty easy to do.
For wardrobe, you will need some lovely lacy lingerie to make a soft, ethereal look. You don’t have to buy well-known brands that can cost hundreds of dollars. Our model, Ngoc Truong, got her entire outfits on Amazon (look for “bridal lingerie”). They look absolutely lovely and amazing, even better than other brands’ designs and won’t break your bank.
For location, we didn’t have to choose a fancy 5-star hotel in order to have great photos. The trick is to get a place with plenty of natural light. This room we booked on Airbnb was just the right one for us. And indeed, we think places like this have more unique characteristics than the standard and similar look of other luxury hotels.
For makeup and hair, you MUST choose the right makeup artist (MUA). This can make a big difference. So, know your style and do some research. Tip: when you look at MUA’s portfolio, try looking at the “before and after” or photos by cell phone. Most of the time, the photos of the MUA are provided by the different photographers, and they can be “overly retouched”.
When should you do a bridal boudoir session? Although you can do it at any time in your life, we think the best time should be a month before your wedding day (or even on the morning of it). You’ve been working so hard for the wedding and your state of mind are already at its best. Isn’t it the right time to document all of your efforts and your greatest look?
