Outdoor boudoir photography
If you would like to do your bridal boudoir session outside we can totally do that! Most of my clients that want outdoor boudoir photography have access to a private location that we can shoot at.
If you don't have a location though, and still want your boudoir photoshoot done outdoors, we have access to some private areas in Occidental, Ca amongst the redwoods that we can provide for an additional fee. I have also done outdoor boudoir photoshoots at select areas along the Sonoma coast that tend to be very private low traffic public locations for women who want a beach beach backdrop for their final boudoir photography.

Best outfits for a Bridal boudoir photoshoot
I have a detailed section that gives you wonderful ideas about what to wear in my boudoir guide which you can download here. Basically the main idea when choosing an outfit should be to make you feel your most confident for your boudoir session. For instance if you are self conscious about your tummy area, pick an outfit that will cover this area like a corset or a chamise.
In my boudoir guide I also give great ideas for simple things you can wear aside from your dress and veil that you probably already have around your house, but never would think to bring. Download the guide now for great tips about what to wear for your bridal boudoir photoshoot.
Although most of my clients want nude or implied nude images as part of their session, you are not obligated to do so as part of your session if you don't want to. I will never photograph you in a way that is beyond your comfort level. My rule is simple when it comes to nude boudoir photography, keep things classy. I have no problem shooting topless and implied nude images as part of your set, but I will only do so in a way I consider tasteful.
