Organic and Elegant Bridal Boudoir - by Lauren Love  -  www.smitten-mag.com_0210

Photographer, Lauren Love, shares her inspiration for this refreshing take on the bridal boudoir session.

The inspiration for this was organic & elegant. I wanted to take a different approach on this bridal boudoir session by creating a scene of anticipation; of readiness. This shoot symbolizes a free-spirited girl who is about to embark on a journey of commitment.  The beach was the perfect location for the tone of this session. We had foggy/overcast weather for our time together during sunrise, which ended up adding to the soft element we were going for.
The bouquet and halo from Little Shop of Flowers in Myrtle Beach paired with Silk & Willow ribbon added texture, movement, and color to the monochromatic weather.  The 1930s vintage dressing gown and veil from Gossamer Vintage added a touch of whimsy.  High-waisted undies made a stylish and modest addition to the sheer gown.
This session showcases a romantic and sensual side of your typical boudoir session, and we love every lacy moment.
