Boudoir pictures are all the rage nowadays. If you’ve never heard of them before, Boudoir photos (or For His Eyes Only photos) are probably the best gift you can give to your husband/fiance. Haha. They’re sexy photos of you, preferably taken by a professional photographer, and then given to your fiance privately around the wedding day.
Now, they’re not necessarily nude photos. In fact, most of the time they’re not. The illusion of being nude is more often provocative than actually seeing someone naked. You can dress up in whatever you feel most comfortable in, or whatever your fiance would like to see you in. For example, I’ve seen girls wear a jersey of their fiance’s favorite sports team. Most opt for tasteful lingerie and most girls don’t take pictures they wouldn’t be able to show their friends. People often use their own bedroom to shoot in, rent a hotel room, wake up early to shoot on the beach or shoot in their photographer’s studio.
I can imagine what a lot of girls are thinking (probably because I’ve thought it too). But you definitely don’t have to be uber thin or have a Victoria’s Secret body to do this. It’s your photographer’s job to accentuate your best features and downplay your….not so best features. 🙂 Plus, even if you don’t think you’re sexy, your fiance thinks you’re perfect just the way you are.
A couple photographers who offer this option in Southern California are:
Skye Blu Photography
Jessica Claire (my wedding photographer who also had this FAQ about Boudoir up on her blog)
Carol Sheridan Photography
I know I didn’t list all of the photographers that may offer this service. I just listed ones where I’ve seen actually pics from sessions. If you just ask your photographer, they’re probably willing to do this for you.
Is this something that you would consider doing for your fiance?
