Just curious if any of you have done a couples boudoir photo shoot after your wedding? We will be doing a trash the dress session the day after our wedding and I’m thinking about doing a few couple boudoir shots in the bedroom before we get all dressed up. For those of you who have done it, what was your experience like? Also, was your man into it or did it take some convincing? For those of you who haven’t, would you consider it?
I guess I should sepcify…I don’t think I would be interested in the lingerie & high heel wearing shots (not that there’s anything wrog with that!) but more so the close up, intomate shots.
Example off Pinterest:

Not a fan.
Somethings in life don’t need to be professionally photographed, as they are just tooo personal and go beyond the boundary of “good taste”
And IMO that includes me and my hubby in our post coitus Honeymoon Suite.
Just reminds me tooo much of the “ancient” tradition of a couple have witnesses to their consumating the marriage, airing the bloody sheets, etc.
EDIT TO ADD – Now if you guys want to snap personal pics of one another, and the room in a playful way that is a whole different ball of wax.

I’ve never heard of couple’s boudoir shots, and I don’t know what you could even do with those photos?

@Tippy0707: I love love love this idea! I would totally be down for it, not sure if my SO would be. It would be like a spin-off on those morning-after-wedding photo sessions that some photographers do for couples, except this gives you a bit more privacy to enjoy your super-freshly newlywed bliss.
How does your FI feel about that?

Having just done a quick google search for couples’ boudoir shoots…I have to say that it looks extremely awkward and uncomfortable. Not to mention…any self esteem issues that a person may have, could be exponentially heightened from this experience. Some of those shots are ridicule worthy, and others are not so bad.
So, no. I wouldn’t consider it.
I don’t want any pictures of myself and/or FH that look like they belong on the covers of Maxim.

couples boudoir sounds like a nice name for soft pornography.
i really think having your wedding night photographed is the next trend.

I love how the first and second comments are both judgements. The OP didn’t ask for your approval. And as to what you’re going to do with the photos – what do you do with any of your photos? Enjoy them. Maybe you make prints, maybe you get an album.
EDIT: Okay so most of the comments here are judgements. Really people?

I’m not really a fan and think it’s kind of in bad tastes, but in the end I guess it’s whatever floats your boat. I can’t imagine many men wanting to do this though.
I agree with @This Time Round as far as snapping some photos yourself goes. That could be really fun and a nice thing to make an album with to remember the time right after your wedding. I say go for that!

I haven’t, I don’t think he would have agreed TBH and it’s not something I cared for.
Have you asked him?
I did do my own boudoir photos and I loved it! It was easy and I got a nice little album. I did it for me as much as for him though, so I can (selfishly) remember how great I once looked at least. She posed me, so as far as feeling like you wouldn’t know what to do…that part was easy! Photographer had done enough to know what were flattering poses.
UPDATE: I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the picture you posted. These types of photos can be very well done or very BAD. Choose the right photographer for sure!

@continuumphotography: if you have something to say about me, use my name. I always stick up for you, even when all the bees are complaining about how annoying your comments can be. I think she could figure out that I wouldn’t consider it, which was the question.
I love how you are a wedding photographer (using your business name) who inserts herself into a message board for brides. How’s that for judgement?

Ummm.. no. I can’t imagine FI and I being photographed in the morning LOL. People would be running for the hills after seeing those photos!

@continuumphotography: She asked if we would consider it. Everyone gave their opinions on the matter at hand except for you.
Please stop trying to stirr drama & maybe answer the OPs question?
