- Wedding: October 2014 - Greenbrier Country Club
I’ve had my heart set on doing boudoir photos for my FI’s wedding gift since I first heard of them. So, I started talking with my wedding photographer about them and she gave me a qoute and… OMGoodness, soooo expensive! I looked around at other places in my area and the same price range was the same. Needless to say, I can’t afford professional photos. 🙁
So… My really good friend is going to do them for me. Yeah 🙂 She did a fantastic job with our engagement photos (everyone thought a professional took them) so I trust her compleately. It’s going to be her first time shooting boudoir photos, but it was also her first time shooting engagement shoots and they came out great.
My FI wouldn’t know the difference between a pro shoot and my friend anyway. Ha.
So, my minds made up. Yeah for talented friends. 😀
Looking for any advise (poses, attire, props…ect) for our session.

this was my favorite shot from my shoot with a pro photog (i won the session in a contest)
and ironically, it shows just about nothing– but the implication is there, which is what I love so much about it =)
I also played around with lots of hats (fedoras, baseball caps, etc) and wore some of his dress socks/ dress shirt for a fun, flirty, sexy feel
dont heistate on doing dark dark makeup, it fades a bit in photos & there is always a way to “hide” certain trouble spots– just play around with posing/ camera location.

Maybe look up some advice for poses online. My photographer posed me and knew how to make you look good since she’s been doing it so long. There has to some advice on poses somewhere and how to angle shots.
I don’t think you need much in the way of props. I’d say some chunky/big necklaces to play with, maybe a tie, heels, and that’s it.
Attire would be matching bra panty sets, any lingerie, mens shirt and matching tie, maybe a jersey.
I would look for some textures for you backgrounds. Like a velvet or highly textured blanket, pillows, a lovely couch, a window, or just a simple bed. That’s pretty much what we worked with.
I had my makeup done but I would highly advise making sure you can make your makeup look amazing (your face should be the focus of plenty of shots) and definitely do false eyelashes if you can. It makes a huge difference.
