Bridal boudoir shoot in Opora
I write quite regularly on the blog about the boudoir photo shoot because that I am sincerely convinced, that every woman should have photos of herself celebrating her beauty, her femininity. When wedding photographer Vasilis Kouroupis sent me this session, I immediately thought that I had to I publish it on Adoré: the exquisite floral arrangements, the flattering photos of this pretty bride should inspire all future brides to booka boudoir shoot, without any fear!
This Gentle and Graceful Bridal Boudoir Shoot in Greece shows us why a boudoir session is a wedding checklist must-have! Opora Hotel nestled among the soft hills of the Grecian landscape is the perfect location for a country living experience and a delicate setting to have an intimate and warm boudoir session inspired by femininity itself. Bridal boudoir sessions are a sensual and intimate experience centered around each bride, focusing on the unique parts that make her the woman she is. Pre - wedding excitement illuminates each woman in such a glow that makes capturing a bridal session easy and effortless. Part of an intimate gift to her special someone or as an empowering experience, a bridal session will definitely add a touch of subtle luxury to each wedding day.
Our shoot in Opora wanted to highlight the femini nity emerging from nature itself, a glow within each woman, and a flow of life-giving energy. The surroundings and the full bloomed gardens of the location added so much texture and feel to our session, resulting in images feminine and intimate, soft and ethereal but empowering and strong at the same time.
Bridal boudoir shoot is a tribute to feminity
From the photographer:
"Bridal boudoir photography is not nude photography. In boudoir shoots, I focus around soft, delicate pieces of clothes that highlight the femininity and softness of a bride. Natural lighting and shade are used to create a flattering light that shows off your favorite parts of your body. Together we will design a boudoir shoot that matches your personality to create something unique. It's a delicate form of photographing the bridal glow, the bliss, a celebration of being you. Getting your picture taken while posing in lingerie may seem intimidating, but with the right attitude, it can be a liberating experience! I always focus on sensitivity, soft colors, and naturally beautiful scenes to make my brides love their bodies even more." Paying attention to every detail is really the number one when it comes to a boudoir shoot. We sourced delicate French lingerie focusing on soft materials like satin and silk for all the soft drapes and movement. Reall y, the biggest advice on wedding boudoirs is luxurious lingerie, focusing on smaller lace patterns, delicate feathers, and finely women tulle. Being soft and graceful always creates the fine art, high-end aesthetics we're after.
The weeks leading to a wedding can be stressful and having a photo session all to your self can be therapeutic Between securing the venue, caterer, band, and officiant, planning your wedding can be all-consuming. Sometimes a bride-to-be just needs a break. And what better way to spend some well-deserved downtime than lingerie shopping? Every photographer will shoot differently depending on their style. My style of bridal boudoir photography is very editorial and takes influence from designer lingerie brands and fashio n magazines with a natural twist to make you feel pretty and celebrated. Before the shoot even takes place
we will talk about what you want from the shoot, what parts of your body you like the most (and the least!). We will start with simple poses until yo u feel comfortable in front of the camera and we will create a variety of imagery to choose from."
Of course, soft makeup and natural hair was the key. We're always after a just woken polished look as if you're waking a Sunday morning in the countryside with your love, wedding bells being the last thing you heard.
"A bridal boudoir photoshoot is a great way to boost your self -confidence before your wedding. It will empower you to feel more confident in your skin — and that is invaluable! One of the most important reasons to organize a boudoir session is simply that you are enough, without changing anything. Nerves are completely normal and can even add to the excitement and anticipation of the day. Most women I work with have never been photographed in this way and nerves come from the fear of the unknown. If you're feeling nervous then remember that it's completely natural. I will be there to direct you every step of the way, in a way that will make you feel totally at ease and even empowered by the experience. Boudoir is a source of self-affirmation and female empowerment. A boudoir session really breaks that self-conscious barrier between a photographer and the bride. The more trust, the better the images are as a result. It's a way to get comfortable with yourself and with me before your wedding day. But really, once we've done a boudoir session every bride gets so much more relaxed and ready for her wedding day photos. It's a lovely way to take the edge of the wedding day stress and ge t some beautiful pictures to have and to hold!"
Playing with the aesthetics, the softness, the fragile soft blooms created that romantic Edwardian novel atmosphere, a focus on the woman dressed in white, a portrait of a feminine bride embarking on her life's greatest adventure. Get inspired by the lovely place Opora is and why a bridal boudoir session is an experience you don't want to miss!
