I photographed Clara’s wedding in March, it was a beautiful day, the weather was kind to us, and her dress was absolutely beautiful! We thought it would be fun and cheeky to do a bridal boudoir shoot, using some of the accessories from her big day and also her hen do. We chose a range of tasteful poses which look elegant but still sexy. I guided Clara into the poses, working around any problematic areas that she felt she had (none, she’s stunning!), meaning that she could be as comfortable as possible during the shoot. My close friend and amazing make up artist Natalie did Clara’s make up and she did an amazing job getting the balance between neutral bridal make up and enough make up to show up on camera with the bright lighting set up.
What Clara says:
‘I recently had my very first boudoir shoot with Vicky. Now I’m one of those woman that isn’t completely happy with her body. So as you can imagine the nerves where kicking in couple days before. Before we started Vicky and Natalie were making me laugh and are very giggly. (This helped a lot) By the time I got changed after having my make up done by Natalie, I started to feel so much more relaxed. All the way through, Vicky kept asking if I was ok. She did make me laugh. Got me bending in places I haven’t tried in years. I loved doing the boudoir shoot. It’s great fun and so different. Vicky and Natalie make you feel so comfortable. I would love to do it again!’
I particularly love this shot, I think it is beautiful and classy.
I love that you can see the engagement and wedding rings in this one, her nails also look amazing!
I love how different these images are, I have an ever-growing love for boudoir and it is something I am really passionate about!
What do you think? Would you consider a boudoir shoot?
