Bridal Boudoir


Louise M is well known as a highly experienced wedding photographer in Matakana. But she’s now offering a special extra service – a personalised Boudoir Session. “Everybody is beautiful,” says Louise. “With all that time and effort you have put in to looking your best – why not capture the memory with a fine art photo session?” Louise prefers to shoot her Boudoir Sessions with natural light and in black and white; she says that this gives the images a timeless feel. She’ll come to you for the shoot – it’s all about feeling comfortable and confident. “It’s a lot of fun and can also be really liberating,” she says. “I’m very relaxed myself about these sessions – perhaps because I’m Swedish! – and it’s great to be able to bring out the bride’s true beauty in this way.

We can shoot in your own home, outdoors, at a hotel – it’s totally up to you.”

Louise says that a clever bride might opt to book a Boudoir Session for when she gets her trial hair and makeup done before the wedding. “You might as well get an added bonus from your investment!” she says. Some brides have a little book made up of their session and give it to their partner-to-be as a wedding morning gift. Louise is happy to offer tailor-made sessions as a hen party activity – shooting the individual sessions separately of course, although, “you could do a group shot as a bit of fun at the end!” she says, with a cheeky twinkle.

Sessions start at $250 for a 45-minute session and a set of five images.
