This was an amazing experience, I highly recommend it. Alex made me feel so comfortable and confident, she took her time and worked at my pace to direct me into the poses. What an absolute pleasure to work with.Looking at my photos I was shocked, I couldn't believe it was me. I didn't know I could be sexy. I fell in love with myself.Ladies do not hesitate to do this. It seems scary at first but by the end you will feel like a supermodel.
It is with great pleasure that I write this testimonial for Alex, a talented female photographer who specializes in capturing the beauty and essence of women.Working with Alex was an incredible experience. She immediately put me at ease and made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her attention to detail was impressive, and her ability to capture my natural beauty and femininity was truly remarkable.As a woman, it was so refreshing to work with a photographer who understands and celebrates the beauty of the female form. Alex has a unique talent for bringing out the best in her subjects, and her photographs truly showcase the strength and power of women.Not only is Alex a skilled photographer, but she is also a kind and empathetic person who truly cares about her clients. She takes the time to get to know her subjects, to understand their vision and goals, and to create a customized photography experience that exceeds all expectations.I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Alex and to have such beautiful, empowering photographs to cherish for a lifetime. I would highly recommend Alex to any woman who is looking for a photographer who will capture her beauty, strength, and spirit in a way that is both authentic and inspiring.Thank you Alex for a life changing experience!Daphne Diluce

Alexandra is amazing as a person and as a professional. Needless to say that she made my wife feel very comfortable and made the whole experience fun. The photos are on a WOW! level and we ended up struggling to choose photos as all of them were amazing.Just in one photoset my wife went through 6 different looks which was very exciting and left her with wanting more.The best part of this experience is not the photos that you will get (which would be enough on its own), but the confidence boost and newly found love and appreciation for your body.

I don't no where to start... absolutely amazing. When I first arrived I was so nervous and Alex made me feel so at ease from the start. I was shown exactly what to do.I'm really self conscious specially of my tummy but the photos were just incredible. I was so shocked and surprised i now loved how my body looked. If I'm having a day where I don't like my body I just look at my photos. Hubby loved them too we now have a canvas on our bedroom wall. I would definitely recommend to anyone to do a shoot with Alex it's a massive confidence boost and makes you feel amazing. Thanks Alex so much for making me get my confidence back and for making me feel amazing xxxx ❤️

Alex I must take a special moment to convey to you how grateful I am for the care and warmth you showed me from the start. I arrived at your Marlow studios with enormous trepidation as to what my 60th birthday present was letting myself into. My lovely husband facilitated this opportunity as a special birthday present with a weekend away just by ourselves. I’m a naturally shy person and not always the most confident about my body despite continuous praise and lovely comments from my husband and friends. So this photo shoot was a complete surprise and I was rather anxious about what it would feel like. I even said no way would you get me out of my bra!I can only say I had no need to worry. Alex met me with the warmest of smiles and completely put my mind and spirit at ease talking me through what we would be doing and how the day would go. Her makeup artist Sheridan was introduced and immediately her natural warm effervescence put me quickly at ease she soon got to know my whole life story and vice versa!Lean forward move the left arm upward, arch your back, head back , right arm back…..oh my what all at the same time??? Goodness this was such a wonderful fun workout I cannot begin to describe just how much. Time passed so quickly outfits changed and the buzz and positive affirmations just made me feel relaxed and at ease. So much to the point that my early claim that Alex would never get me to be naked flew right out the window in a way I cant begin to explain.Thank you so much for the experience….I love the outcomes……I want to share my photos with the world if only I dare!!! Even my daughter a natural born prude…..said …….’ Good grief mum ! You are HOT!!!’--

All female crew & total privacy

It's women only here at FYEO and that includes the airburshers, and makeup artist, as well as the photographers.

When you're being photographed, it's just you and your photographer in the room, so it's nice and private.

Your pictures are not used in any marketing material and will not appear on our website.

Some clients have kindly donated thier images and photoshoot story to inspire other women, this is an opportunity you can take at your choice.

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 don’t need to worry about a thing except for following the 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 photo session 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!

What is a Boudoir Bride Boudoir Photoshoot?

The phrase boudoir bride was coined because it is boudoir photography, with a wedding theme. You can see examples of our boudoir bride boudoir photography by clicking here.

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. 
How a boudoir bride photo shoot works:
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 of a boudoir photo collection is an alternative to traditional wedding gifts for grooms 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.
