Oo la la. Let's talk boudoir*
For your wedding you are fully empowered. You have decided your partner, your day, your dress, and in many ways your body. You cherished your physique and ate right, toned your muscles, and created curves you are proud to put front and center for your 24 hours in the spotlight. And your figure is more than something to drape pretty fabric on and take pictures. Capture your beauty from head to toe - your natural shape, your luscious skin, your sensuality, and your sexy ass-ets ;) Now is the perfect time to capture all of your magnificence and that is best done via a boudoir shoot.
Wear as much or as little as you like. Many opt for bridal lingerie, maybe some stilettos, a veil. Plan in advance so your photographer will bring the best set up and can share suggestions and ideas. Photographers well-versed in boudoir know how to create a comfortable and empowering experience and show your figure in a way that you are happy with.
Schedule a separate boudoir shoot, or for weddings with a little space in the schedule, estimate 45 minutes of private time in a quiet space with you, your photographer and maybe your best friend who can help straighten your hair.
Memorialize more than your wedding dress, treasure your wedding body too.
It's all about having fun, being yourself, and appreciating all of you!
You look your best - capture it and enjoy it
See you in the boudoir...
For those who think this is not in Indian culture, remember that the Kama Sutra teaches that there are the pleasures of the body along with taking on the responsibilities of marriage and family.
