As a photographer, the direction the boudoir photography has been taken for the past couple of years can only make me extremely happy.
I always encouraged people to get out of the studios, and embrace the freedom of being outdoor and the beautiful natural light.
Living on a beach allowed me to set up an outdoor bridal boudoir inspirational shoot hoping that the bravery of these beautiful women will inspire you to do the same with your girlfriends.
I chose non models (except for Mandie who saved me jumping into the shoot last minute) by posting a message on my boudoir Facebook business page. The response was overwhelming indicating how many of you would be open and desire an outdoor boudoir session.
I honestly could not have chosen a better group of girls and vendors. The girls bounded over giggles and mimosas and 4 hours later we ended up with not only beautiful photos and a great memory (one of the girls called this past Sunday the best of her life) but an amazing beginning of friendships as well. We are all looking forward to our reunion already.
About the vendors..
I chose to work with Flower and Bee because these two amazing women Courtney and Jamie, not only do a fantastic job as flower stylists, but they also own their flower farm. They are dedicated to growing and promoting natural, simple flower arrangements with an organic feel to them. If you live in Southeast Wisconsin and you love nature, mason jars and an creativity, then they are the right florists for you .
Lori with Table of Contents Vintage rentals did an amazing job styling the shoot and providing items accordantly to the color palette we decided to go with.
Mandie Mutchie and Bridget Caldwell were in charge of making the girls look beautiful and we all agree they did a wonderful job.
Also many thanks to my neighbor Matthew Willer for the giggles and for providing transportation with his truck down and up the hill for us.
Enjoy the photos!
