Boudoir beauty

Sometimes brides approach us hesitantly when it comes to shooting boudoir photos. Naturally, it can be both exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time… but boudoir is just as much for you, as it is for your significant other. Keep in mind that boudoir doesn’t always mean lingerie or nudity; it is simply a day for you to be pampered, feel your utmost beautiful, and not worry about your impending nuptials — if only for a few hours.

Below is a bride who contacted us with nothing more than a couple of  ideas torn from magazines. She wanted a highly-stylized, MAC makeup-esque editorial shoot that focused on her fiancé’s favorite feature — her eyes. We put our talented team of stylists to work in the studio, glamming her up with a gorgeous color palette and a faux bob reminiscent of a vintage screen siren.

And voilà! Insta-sex kitten, straight from a magazine ad! Her fiancé is quite the lucky man!

Christine and Scott’s Mexican beach wedding – Part III

Christine and Scott opted for a low-key approach to their ceremony — no bridesmaids, no groomsmen, just a simple and stylish affair on the sand with all of their guests in bare feet. As the sun waned on the Pacific horizon over Playa Palmilla, they exchanged vows before an intimate gathering of friends and family while a string mariachi played on.

Though the ceremony was contemporary, Christine and Scott honored their Mexican surroundings with Mexican wedding traditions performed by a local priest — the traditions of the Thirteen Gold Coins (trece monedas de oro, given by the groom to the bride as a symbol of trust and confidence, signifying he will support her) and the Lasso (el lazo, a large loop of rosary beads worn by the couple in a figure-eight shape as a symbol of love and unity, which binds them together every day as they share the responsibilities of marriage for the rest of their lives).
