Beneath the Veil

28th August 2016


You may have seen me blog about previous boudoir shoots which were presents from brides-to-be to their future husbands, but this was the first which included the veil and bridal underwear in the shots. It was great to do this shoot, as the theme was totally different to any Boudoir session I've done before. Although, like doing anything new, I always that doubt that as to whether I can still achieve my style. I shouldn't have worried, the beautiful Faith made this very easy.



The implied topless shots involved the bridal veil acting literally as a veil, I opted to shoot into the light to add mystery and a bit of drama too. The room where the shoot took place had a very tall window in it, making the contra-jour style the obvious way to go. It suited the bridal theme to a tee too, the opaque veil in the bright window light worked beautifully.



We finished with the bridal lingerie sets, posing on the bed and adjacent to the window to light Faith more directly. Although the veil wasn't present in these shots, the lingerie certainly said 'bridal' to me. Faith looked stunning in her various outfits, I think her husband to be would have been made up to receive the prints of these shots as a gift.



As with the planning of any wedding, and the associated gifts etc, there is always a budget to adhere to. This was the case with this gift Boudoir session too. Faith opted for a mini-shoot, so the key was to work quickly to capture the required shots in the time available. Three outfit changes and three 'sets' of images may have seemed a tall order, but Faith was a natural in front of the camera. We recorded the images in the usual Eterno relaxed style. It just goes to show that if you were focus on exactly what you want from a session, it can be done on a budget that suits everyone.



I was very keen to share some of these images, simply because they are gorgeous and I'm really happy with how they look. This wouldn't have been possible with permission from my client of course, so I'd like to say a big "Thank You" to Faith for allowing me to share some of the images from this beautiful photo session.
