Bridal Boudoir – trash the dress – Chicago, Illinois
This boudoir session was inspired by the “trash the dress” idea with a little twist added to it. Magdalena’s from PURE boudoir goal was to use the wedding gown in lieu of traditional lingerie and yet create the same impression of sensuality and lust. It gave a fun opportunity to re-wear her wedding gown and feel like a goddess again!
The biggest (and most wrongful) assumption about boudoir is that you have to get completely nude or wear skimpy lingerie to obtain the desired effect of looking sexy. This is not the case! You need to define your own level of comfort and find what “sexy” means to you. Magdalena has skills that allow to bring out the sexy in every woman regardless of whether wears lingerie or a sweater. The most important thing is your comfort. If you do not feel comfortable, it will be very difficult to hide that discomfort in the pictures. Therefore incorporating something like a dress shirt, a loose sweater or your favourite robe can change the vibe of the whole session and make you feel more comfortable in front of the camera. Same with a wedding gown- using it during boudoir can give it another life and turn the experience into a “save the dress” session.
A boudoir session in your wedding gown is not just a perfect memory for you- your significant other will appreciate it as well. Magdalena offers beautiful custom made boudoir albums crafted in Italy. They are a perfect gift for special occasions including a wedding day.
Don’t let your insecurities get in a way. As mentioned before, sexy doesn’t mean naked. Sexy means feeling comfortable in what you are wearing in front of the camera.
