Couples Boudoir ~ Brisbane Boudoir Photography
I’ve been asked about Couples Boudoir Photography a lot. Is it awkward? What ACTUALLY happens during a shoot? Well I thought I could best answer some of these questions by walking the walk, doing our own self-portrait couples boudoir shoot, and taking you through the ins and outs.
What I can tell you straight up, is that the majority of the shoot actual goes something along the lines of this… You will relax very quickly and have a whole lot of fun and laughs with each other. THAT, I can promise you!
SO WHY DO A COUPLES BOUDOIR SHOOT?
For some couples, the idea of getting undressed down to your underwear (or less) in front of a stranger can be completely daunting. I get it, and nerves are 100% normal and expected. But trust me when I say, that I have been doing this a LONG time, I’m incredibly professional, and my focus the entire shoot will be on capturing the most intimate and seductive moments between you and your partner.
A couple’s boudoir shoot allows you to do something fun together, reignite the passion in your relationship, and capture some of those special moments that make your relationship extraordinary. Whether it’s a hot new relationship, or you’re celebrating your relationship after many years of marriage and children… be empowered and own your sexuality TOGETHER! Take a day where you focus on just the two of you again without any other distractions. You’ll fall in love all over again, not only with each other, but with yourself as well. You’ll see yourself through your partner's eyes, and that is a gift that is unimaginable. You don’t need to know how to pose in any of the photos, that’s my job, and I will guide you throughout the whole shoot.
WHAT SORT OF IMAGES WILL YOU SHOOT?
You can choose to have more soft, tender and conservative images, or you can have more suggestive, passionate and risqué images… or a mixture of everything. Again, this will be at your discretion and based on the types of images you want to capture from your shoot. I will discuss all of this at length with you leading up to your session so we are all on the same page.
IS IT ALL IMPLIED?
The answer is 100% YES. Every single image is implied. There is never any funny business going on. There are strategically placed limbs, hands, props or clothing to help hide what we want to hide. I will help guide you into poses that will look most flattering for you as the couple, but making sure they still look like very real and candid moments. The majority of images will show the connection between you as the couple, and very rarely have you looking at the camera at all.
WHAT DO WE WEAR?
In terms of how much or how little you wear during a couples shoot, that’s entirely up to you. If you feel the most sexy in jeans and a t-shirt, wear that. If you both wanna rock some Calvins, bring them along. If you’re happy to strip down completely by the end of your shoot, that’s also great.
WHO CAN DO A COUPLES BOUDOIR SHOOT?
Couples boudoir shoots are for ANY couple. Young, old, skinny, curvy, tattooed, pierced… it doesn't matter. If the two of you want to celebrate your relationship and get in front of a camera, I know you'll love the experience and walk away with some incredible images and memories to cherish.
We often find ourselves too busy to just slow down, and romantically enjoy and appreciate each other. Think about how beautiful some intimate couple’s images would look as artwork on the walls of your bedroom, or on display as a gorgeous album. Tell your own story and be the art in your own home! Bring your own music along too if you’d really like to set the mood for your shoot.
Every couple who I have photographed have basically said “This was way more fun and less scary than we expected. Let’s do this again!”
So what are you waiting for….you have nothing to lose and everything to gain!
