Boudoir Shoot Before The Big Day

A Gathered Gals Photo Shoot

What could be more beautiful than catching sight of a gypsy bride frolicking in the wild? Before the wedding, a bride should become one with herself. A beautiful piano, delicately guarding her vows to future hubby or an array of boudoir lingerie captures, each only better than the one before it.

Why should you consider a boudoir session

This romantic photo shoot designed by Melanie Zentmeyer and held at the Grove Grounds is not only serving up inspiration for an unexpected, rich color palette but it also might inspire you to consider a boudoir shoot for your future hubby. The pictures alone are so insanely gorgeous, you just might dare to go bare and shoot a gorgeous boudoir before the big day.

Creating Intimate Heirlooms

Boudoir is a whole new experience giving you a chance to get intimate heirlooms from the day of your wedding or not long before the day. You can do it in the comfort of your own home or organize a getaway somewhere, rent a cozy AirBnB and invite a photographer in.

Trusting your photographer

We all might feel a little shy in front of the camera sometimes , especially if it’s a boudoir shoot, unveiling your vulnerability. Just let your photographer guide you through the shoot (I’m sure every photographer has their own tricks how to make you comfortable), be present in the moment, enjoy the experience and forget everything around you. Imagine it’s just the 2 of you in the room.
