1. Makapuu Beach Sunrise Hawaiian Boudoir Adorned By Roses

    Boudoir is often thought of in only one way…. lingerie clad and overly sexy.  There are, in fact, many other stunning & wonderful interpretations of boudoir, not all in lingerie either.  Today’s styled shoot from wedding photographer Vanessa Hicks Photography rides a gorgeous line between Hawaiian boudoir meets sunrise bridal session.  No matter which you decide to color with, it’s a delicious treat.  Starting at 4am, (4am!) Vanessa headed out with model Leslie to the rocky shores of Makapuu Beach, armed with a lush tropical flower crown & rose adorned veil courtesy of florist Creative Concepts by Jeff .  The duo found the most amazing locale for this Hawaiian boudoir meets bridals, a locale forged of volcanic earth, carved out by the mighty pacific. While some models might not have been up for the cold, wind, & getting wet by the waves, Leslie delivered in so many ways.  Wearing a simple, classic white one piece swimsuit, the pairing of the floral crown and cathedral length veil take us into an ethereal world drenched in yummy golden hues.  Leslie is one of the rare ones, able to render you spellbound by her direct to camera eyes the very same way she is able to with her megawatt smile...

  2. Artful Fine Art Film Noir Moody Boudoir In Atlanta

    You're not supposed to have favorites.  They say each one should take an equal amount of you're heart.  The simple truth is, thats never really the case is it?  When Atlanta wedding photographer Christa O'Brien Photography's stunning fine art film noir moody boudoir shoot fell into my lap I felt a sense of connection I don't always feel.  Don't get me wrong, I so very much love the various shoots we share, its not always though, they feel completely like... me.  If I were to do a boudoir shoot today, I'd be beating down Christa's door... no joke, no fluff, solid truth.  There are so many beautiful little things working in harmonious strength within this little moody boudoir that it is extraordinarily hard to deny its success.  The location is utterly divine, offering the perfect blend of natural light, with a mood loving interior decor.  A bouquet of the drippy hand-tied fashion in dark brooding hues by Beautiful/Wild Design accented with ribbon from The Poetry of Silk floats throughout.  Simple, incredibly chic lingerie choices hug in all the right places creating the most enticing blend of reveal meets coy.  Then you have Christa's eye coupled with hair & makeup artist Erin Ryser beauty details.  Each and every photograph is stand alone stunning...

  3. Ethereal Indoor Intimate Boudoir With A Focus On Coy Moments

    There's something kind of extra gorgeous about the moments in between. This dreamy ethereal intimate boudoir session from Luv Lens was shot on location at White Glove Rentals, becoming the perfect stage. While other boudoir shoots tend to 'over do it', force a feeling and create an almost over sexualized set of portraits, the beauty here is in those transitional moments in between. The curve of the body, the shape of the hip... photographs that others might use as simple stepping stones to get to the more obvious become the true stars here. Make no mistake about it, this intimate boudoir is every bit the vixen we want boudoir to be, its simple articulated in way that is everything.

  4. Fun And Flirty Loft Boudoir Session At 253 Studio

    Today's loft boudoir session from the mind meld of florist Bixby and Pine and Samantha McFarlen is practically a love letter of confidence to any woman who's ever considered a boudoir session but has shied away. While the world will never get its fill of the sultry more sensual boudoir variety, the team wanted to step away from the standard, drifting into a loft boudoir session that was light, airy and filled with delightfully feminine & pretty things. In doing so the duo enlisted Unique and Chic Rentals to fill the room with vintage decor pieces, while Bixby accented the room with lush draped greens dotted by peachy garden roses, pink ranunculus and wax flowers. The girls were greeted by a wondrous mix of styling treats from the likes of Ariel Jennifer Taub, Le Salon Bridal, Malis-Henderson, Thomas Knoell Designs, Ella Moss, Lucy and Lyla, and Plum Pretty Sugar. If any had had reservations of posing for a boudoir session prior to walking into the room, I am sure those concerns melted away within seconds! The result is a delightful loft boudoir shoot filled with exposed brick walls and high ceilings. A sweetly bright and romantic setting that surrounded, allowing each girl to be filled with joy. While there are certainly a few shots that follow suit with more traditional boudoir, there is an ease...
