This NYC boudoir photography session was so stunning. We shot this gorgeous editorial during the Darcy Benincosa workshop in New York with the amazingly talented Type A Society.
I’m so thrilled to officially announce I have a new add-on for Boudoir Photography for my 2023 brides, complete with the perfect keepsake book. Boudoir sessions are such an empowering experience, and I couldn’t be more excited to share them with you!
Bridal Boudoir Sessions
Boudoir Photography is about much more than showing a little extra skin. My brides rave about how amazing they feel after their sessions and how much fun the experience was. It also happens to be the perfect gift to give your brand new spouse on your honeymoon or anniversary!
If you’re considering a bridal boudoir session for your wedding day or weekend, here are a few of my favorite things to keep in mind.
I have a few options for this add-on during your wedding weekend. If the timeline allows, your boudoir session can be scheduled for the morning of your wedding. If your timeline is tight on the wedding day, I also have the option of the day of your rehearsal dinner. Feel free to reach out so we can determine the best fit for you.
Location will be top of mind when planning your session, especially on the morning of your wedding. If your getting ready room allows, it could be the perfect place. Just be sure to consider the lighting in the room and be sure to keep things tidy and uncluttered.
It might even be the perfect nudge to book the extra luxurious room you’ve been eyeing for the weekend. The Plaza was perfection for this day, and I loved how elevated it felt.
Hair and Makeup
I recommend booking your hair and makeup a little earlier in the day if you plan to schedule on the day of your wedding. It will allow for a low-key, relaxing morning and ensure you feel your best before jumping in front of the camera. Be sure to chat with your makeup artist about staying for touchups before getting into your gown if you’re planning this for the morning of.
Be sure to make it feel the most “you” by drawing your own inspiration for the session. Be sure to listen to your gut and communicate with me about the ideal session for you. So much of what makes a boudoir session special is trust and communication. Feel free to reach out for more information if this is something you’re considering as an add-on to your wedding photography package. I would love to walk you through more information!
