Your wedding day photographs are always going to be something special. These are the perfect snapshots of your wonderful day and that is why picking out a photographer is so important. You want to ensure that you get the best quality to build your photo album with. While the wedding day photographs are something traditional, there is a new craze buzzing around where couples take their wedding photography to an even more intimate level with a special engagement photo shoot.
An intimate photography session is a fantastic way to do some further bonding work in your relationship, and you can book yourself a pre or post-wedding intimate photography session. This, of course, is something far more personal than the photographs that will be taken at the actual ceremony, where there are many onlookers. We are talking about a far more stripped down intimate photography session, such as the popular boudoir set up.
For an intimate photography session, one great way to approach this who new idea, is to book a session as an engagement celebration as this can not only give your a great lasting gift to each other, but it is also a chance to step away from your wedding preparations and focus on each other to have those moments of personal, deeper connections and love captured. What this can also do is allow you to get a personal connection with the photographer that you will be using on your actual wedding day too.
Getting stripped down in front of the camera for special tasteful, romantic poses such as cuddling, or snuggling together on a chaise while the camera is capturing that in a voyeuristic way from another room, can build a special photograph album for yourselves. This is a chance to just enjoy some beautiful and sweet moments with each other where you are totally comfortable in being your respective selves, be it having the photographs taken in your lingerie or underwear, or just your most casual sweats that the world never gets to see.
This is about you and your partner being yourself because you don’t want to look back at them in a couple of years and realize that they were all forced and staged poses. You want the intimate engagement photography session to be real, natural and really intimate, it has to be a reflection of how you naturally are with each other out of sight of the world. This can all be done in the comfort of your own home too to further enhance that feeling of intimacy because this engagement is the start of your lives together in the safe haven that is your own four walls.
If you take a post-wedding intimate photography session then this could be a fantastic way to relax after all the hustle and bustle of the wedding planning and day, to just have some private moments to reconnect with your new spouse. Another wonderful option for an intimate photography session could be as an idea for a future anniversary gift to enjoy together for that special re-connection factor.
Before going ahead, talk thoroughly with your photographer, because if you do want to go with a more erotic style set of memories, then you will want to ensure that your photographer is used to handling nudity like you can find in boudoir photo sessions. If you are just looking for natural clothed (or just underwear-bearing) intimacy in your own setting, discuss the best places in your own home for the shoot, maybe it is wrapped together in unity on your favorite chair, or maybe it is the bride being wrapped in the bare arms of her groom, staring out of the conservatory window.
Listen to the photographer to help pick out those locations and then, while you get to share your actual wedding day album with friends and family, these are the special private collection of photographs that you only get to share with the person closest to your heart.
