Every woman is entitled to a secret. However in this case, “it” won’t remain in the shadows for too long. Whether it's a photo of your baby bump, a pre-wedding suprise for your husband or just a celebration of your beauty - boudoir photography invigorates a woman's soul.

 

Brides and ladies in all forms are in a craze for a “sorta new” photography in bloom these recent years. Stripping down to almost nothing, women have taken a liking to having their sexiest moment being captured on camera. A tad more mature than those prenuptial photography shoots you do with your hubby. Boudoir Photography peddles a form of body art that’s growing in popularity in the realm of wedding photography, as gifts of to bride-to-be’s to their beloved grooms.

Boudoir Photography’s Genesis

Early forms of art always favored women as fascinating subjects (pioneered by the Greeks). Artists depicted the female form worthy of capturing and withholding it as an object of desire.

And even at the start of its discovery in the 1920’s, by an artist who photographed women in nude, the approach was purely in the pursuit of beauty as art and paved a soft and romantic appeal. It escalated in popularity during the time of Marilyn Monroe and since then the history of boudoir and glamour photography endeared femininity and beauty.

 

From the word boudoir, meaning a lady’s quarters intended for bathing or dressing, this idea was incorporated with taking photos of women recreating such covert activities, and thus, Boudoir Photography. The intention of this kind of photography is to showcase the allure of the subject by posing intimately or coyly in front of the camera.

At the rise of digital photography, the trend from back then resurfaced and became an instant hit for modern brides.

Who Can Avail such?

Certainly not brides alone, ladies and gents, young and old, married or not, and even pregnant women can be of service of boudoir sessions. Although a bigger portion of clients belong to the brides, it does not discourage anyone from doing such. It disproves the premise that only “hetero ladies” who can flaunt their glow and express their own definition of sexiness.

 So not porn...

Despite having nearly naked women strutting and posing seductively in still shots, this is not porn. Boudoir sessions are soft-core and cater to sensuality and art. It’s not just exposing yourself but showing off the best that you can be. Capturing in stunning photographs the beauty of self is what makes it an art.

 

At what cost?

A session could cost somewhere from P 8,000 to P 12,000, depending on the duration of the photo shoot and the number of costume changes. Pricey but well worth it, you can only experience some of life’s greatest moments once or twice, why not capture to make it a long lasting memory? And there is also no need to fret of causing a scandal with your boudoir photos. Professional boudoir photographers will consign a contract of confidentiality stating that your photos cannot be shown to anyone without your consent.
