Boudoir Wedding Shoots: A Modern Bride’s Special Gift to her Hubby

Leave the romance for your wedding day! The newest trend for brides-to-be are sexy boudoir wedding shoots. Give the gift that keeps on giving with a special album for his eyes only. This is about being a confident bride, while feeling sexy and empowered. So what exactly does a boudoir shoot entail?



The shoot can take place in our studio or any other setting in which the bride feels the most comfortable. We understand the need for an intimate location with this type of photography. We can shoot your boudoir photos anywhere you’d like in Bergen County— the number one goal is always the bride’s comfort.


Although the intent is to feel sexy, a Boudoir shoot is also meant to leave a little to the imagination. It’s a classy memento for your significant other that is a separate wedding memory for just the two of you.

Some brides choose an outfit that resembles their dress while others may go for a playful theme—like country western with a hat and boots. The idea is to make it about who you two are as a couple, while also keeping it playful and fun.


I’ve photographed hundreds of women over the years, and somewhere along the way, I’ve learned a thing or two about what looks good in a boudoir shoot.  The bottom line is it doesn’t have to be complicated!  I’ll outline a few simple tips here to help get you started on your wardrobe prep.  Clothing, lingerie, or implied nudity can all be sexy in their own right.  It’s the woman that makes the outfit.



The best time to schedule a Boudoir shoot in Bergen County, New Jersey is a few months before the wedding. Not only does it raise the excitement for the wedding night itself, it allows the bride to experiment with hair and makeup looks before the day of the wedding. 


How long the shoot takes generally depends on your location and attire. The more outfits you have, the longer it will run. You should always plan for at least few hours to get the shots you need. After all, this isn’t the type of shoot you rush through. Getting comfortable in your own skin can sometimes take time, but once you see your album, we promise you’ll be blown away.

Go with a Pro

A professional wedding photographer, like David Eric, will know how to shoot you at just the right angles and the proper lighting to make you feel like the sexy bride you should be. They can direct you on how to pose with positions that make you look your best. Going with a pro also ensures all of your photos are carefully retouched and bound in an album for hubby’s safekeeping.

If you have any questions about how we set-up or style a shoot, give us a call today. We’d be happy to answer any questions to put the bride’s mind at ease.
