One of my friends is getting married in a few weeks but I won’t be able to attend. The idea was to take lots of lovely pictures of the gorgeous couple, however I have a family holiday. I wanted to do something for her considering I wouldn’t be there. When she told me how much she liked the boudoir photographs I’d done, we booked a session.
We had a chat about what types of photo’s she wanted and decided to make it bridal theme. Her images would be presented in a gift box her new husband as a wedding present. We decided a veil, a bridal dressing gown, her wedding day shoes, some pretty underwear, a fascinator would make gorgeous contributions to the shoot.
L owns a dance school and performs in shows as part of her business with her pupils. With a huge singing and dancing background, L can quite easily do her own make-up flawlessly and arrived at my house ready to go.
L’s a natural model given her dance background and was amazing. I worked with what she liked about her body and what she didn’t like, but she moved around the room with ease and confidence.
I had a lovely morning shooting her. The best part are her messages to me once she’d seen the finished images and showed her fiance.
She had said, as she received her gift and described opening it to me,
‘ It’s here! The box is so lovely… I’m going to have a quick look’ Then a few screams…’ Thank you so much, they are the best I’ve ever had of me. I love them all,’
Together, L and her husband-to-be, picked their favourite images. We also did a few cheeky ones but they’re just for husband and wife.
Doesn’t she look beautiful!
