Category Archives: Bridal Boudoir

Bridal Boudoir is becoming more and more popular with first-time brides-to-be. Months before the Big Day, the bride-to-be and I will secretly coordinate a collection of intimate and romantic photos that will be gifted to the groom on their wedding day. View samples from my Bridal Boudoir Photography Gallery of images that capture a woman “getting ready” in her wedding attire starting with her undergarment that is only meant for her groom-to-be. These are done at least 30 days prior to wedding day because — as how most weddings go — she will not typically have the time nor the privacy to do these images on the actual wedding day. And when she presents these images, it is usually during the Getting Ready part of the wedding day when the groom is preparing himself in a separate room … So I think it’s a great idea to have the official wedding photographer capture his reaction as he is opening his secret gift from his new bride. (The groom’s reaction over his gift will be all worth the hush!)

I am still accepting bookings to help with our adoption journey.

Happy New Year!! May 2017 be the best year for you yet.

This new year started off a little stressful for me…
Previously, I had planned to retire from my photography business by March 1 because I felt it’s time for me to pursue something else, also the date will be exactly 10 years since I started the business. Of course, as we all know… life happens. Our second journey to start our own family (after a 10-year hiatus to help my husband take care of his mother living with dementia) through adoption or fertility treatments have become more overwhelming than we had thought so I am making 2017 the year we get to [finally] bring home a child or two, one way or another. Well, the legal way! haha!!! So if you are in need of a professional, experienced — and sweet! — photographer for your special event, wedding, family portraits, boudoir pics, etc., then please let me know. I’d love to work with you again. :)

P.S. I am available worldwide. My passport is always ready!

Tasteful Bridal Boudoir Photos

A bridal boudoir photo session doesn’t have to involve too much props or anything; you can keep it very minimal and just focus on the bride-to-be. To me, it’s always about the client… if there’s too much props then it just takes away from her then she becomes secondary when our eyes should go straight to her. //Model: Carly Jean

Romantic Bridal Boudoir Pictures as Featured on Style Me Pretty

If you’re planning a wedding, then you may recall your photographer asking if you were interested in having Getting Ready photos. For these photos, your photographer remains in the room with you, documenting you and your bridal party getting ready for the big moment. These images here were taken at a wedding styled shoot that was featured on Style Me Pretty. I wanted to focus on getting ready images a little differently than what is usually done. As a former bride myself, I felt prettiest on my wedding day; I was getting ready for my husband-to-be and I couldn’t wait for him to see me in my wedding dress. Now, looking back on that special day 12 years ago, I wish I had taken a moment to document myself getting ready in this way: Bridal Boudoir Photography … The final images would not only be for my groom as a surprise wedding gift, but for me to cherish one of the prettiest days of my life.

Playing with Masks at My Portland Boudoir Studio

I brought home some colorful masks from my last trip to the Philippines, and I knew I wanted to incorporate them into my boudoir photo shoots even for just a few shots. This bride wanted my help with a Bridal Boudoir surprise gift for her groom-to-be on their wedding day, and that’s exactly what we did: He was surprised! //Model: Jamie
