Have you ever considered making a luxury boudoir album for your spouse-to-be?
It’s a tradition for the couple to get each other a gift on their wedding day. You could buy your spouse-to-be jewelry, chocolates, flowers, or a monogrammed robe, but why not start your marriage off with a little spice…and I don’t mean with matching salt and pepper shakers.
Get them a stunning luxury boudoir photo album featuring you! It’s an incredibly personal keepsake that they’ll enjoy for years to come.
Here are a few tips to create a luxury boudoir photo album for your partner:
Tip #1: DON’T take the photos yourself
Let’s face it, selfies are rarely sexy…especially if you’re trying to do your own boudoir shoot. A camera on a tripod with a timer won’t get you in the sexiest of poses! Hire a professional boudoir photographer and you not only get higher quality photos, but you get the benefit of an amazing experience which you will cherish for a long time to come.
A professional boudoir photographer knows the most flattering poses and angles to make you feel and look confident. They’ll use this experience to guide you through your shoot and bring out your inner goddess.
Tip #2: Book your luxury boudoir album session early
It often takes about 2 weeks to get your photos back from a professional photoshoot, then another 3-4 weeks to get your photos turned into an album. I suggest that you book your session at least 3-4 months before your wedding. Some photographers who provide high-quality work and a great experience might even be booked out 6 or more months in advance so make sure to contact them in time! This way you can cross one item off your list early, so you can spend more time dealing with more pressing, last-minute wedding planning details.
Tip #3: Make it personal
Definitely bring your wedding veil and white lingerie for your shoot to create some bridal boudoir photos! Also bring props that mean something special to you and your spouse. For example, if you or your spouse is a musician and plays a guitar, bring it for your session for some sexy shots with it! If you have a special memento from a special experience you shared together, bring that and we’ll work it into your shoot. Even his favorite dress shirt or team hat can add a touch of personal spice to your shoot.
Tip #4: It’s a gift for YOU too!
Don’t forget it’s also a gift for yourself. Wedding planning can be stressful, so taking time for yourself before the big day can do wonders for your wellbeing. A boudoir photoshoot is a chance to focus on you for the day. If you find the right photographer, you’ll also get hair and makeup prep done so this in itself is a treat and will make you feel like a million bucks! It’s a safe space where you are free to be yourself, rediscover your inner goddess, and have fun!
Tip #5: When to surprise them
This may be a gift you want to give to your spouse in private. Consider exchanging gifts when you get back to the hotel room before you begin your wedding night together. It might help set the mood for your first night as a married couple.
Giving your partner the gift of a luxury boudoir album is a much more personalized wedding gift than a monogrammed towel. It’s the perfect gift to symbolize your commitment to each other and a gift you can both treasure for years to come.
