Imagine this...

So let’s say you’re wearing you wedding lingerie, heels and jewellery and you’re  in your own private studio with your female photographer. You’ve unpacked your bags and all your accessories are laid out for your photographer to see  You’ll then take a few steps onto the FYEO body-sculpting platform and lay down on it,  ready to take the first instructions from your female photographer. The studio lighting is arranged around you.
As you lay down on the body-siuclptng platform you’ll be shown EXACTLY how to pose and asked to follow the step by step directions from your photographer. Its actually a bit like yoga - meets twister!
You really don’t need to worry about a thing except for following those instructions.

How to prepare for a boudoir bride photoshoot session

To get ready for a boudoir bride photoshoot you'll need to think about preparing; body hair, nails, outfits, hairstyle and skin exfoliation. Here’s why…

A boudoir bride photoshoot is your moment to SHINE, exactly as you want to be seen.

Whatever your preferred body hair routine is, you’ll need to fix before your shoot. And whether you prefer to go natural with your nails or wear a splash of colour that too done. You can thrill your groom by wearing different outifts than he's used to seeing you in, this includes your wedding lingerie and accessories. With your hair, be yourself and go for a new haristyle before  visitng the studio. And finally exfoliating your skin for a few weeks before a shoot can help with any dry skin on the day of your shoot.

All of this is just a guide really, there's no rules here!

The phrase boudoir bride was coined because it is boudoir photography, with a wedding theme.

The theme relates to what the bride wears during her photoshoot: her wedding accessories, veil, tiara, wedding shoes, and lingerie  - and  also because of the timing of it... it is done at a time when a woman is preparing to be a bride — normally within 4 months of getting married. 
 
The way it works is this;
a Bride 2 be will visit the studio to be photographed wearing her wedding lingerie or go nude in order to create a very private and surprise wedding gift for her groom. The pictures are sensual, artistic and flattering, with moody lighting and erotic poses. At FYEO a bride is directed into all these poses she need knot know them herself.
 
The gift Is an alternative to traditional wedding gift such as cufflinks or a watch. It’s a lovely thing to do for two reasons
  1. It marks the way you are at the beginning of your life.
  2. The groom gets a gift which is more sexual in nature and more closely linked to the love and physical closeness of you as a couple.
