Ten Best Reason to do a Boudoir Photography Shoot…

 

You’ve heard the words “Boudoir Session”, but what exactly is a boudoir photography session? Should you get one done? A boudoir session is a photography session where you wear sexy outfits, lingerie, dresses, or even go scantily clad and get your photographs taken. While these sessions can seem intimidating here are the top eight reasons why you SHOULD do a boudoir session!

 

Ten Best Boudoir - Jacksonville

Ten Best Boudoir – Jacksonville

 

1. YOU’LL LOOK & FEEL AMAZING

Professional hair and makeup, a professional photographer, and professional retouching equals some of the best portraits of yourself that you will ever see. I often tell my clients to schedule a night out after getting their portraits done, because they will look and feel amazing! Waiting to lose those perpetual “Last 5, 10, or 15 pounds”? DON’T! Professional photographers know how to pose you to flatter your individual body type.

 

2. CONFIDENCE BUILDING

We will coach you down to your fingertips and capture your most beautiful and radiant self. From the moment you sit in the makeup chair to the moment you skip with

confidence out of the studio you’re going to feel like a million bucks!

 

3. IT MAKES A GREAT GIFT FOR YOUR GROOM/HUSBAND/BOYFRIEND/SIGNIFICANT OTHER!

Imagine the look on his face when you surprise him with a little keepsake box filled with sensuous pictures of the one he loves! He thinks you’re beautiful on your worst hair days and in your yoga pants, so show him how smoking hot you are in classy lingerie and professional makeup! It may be a side he’s never seen!

 

4. IT MAKES A GREAT GIFT FOR YOU!

Show off your beauty and give yourself an esteem boost with photographs that you can treasure. Do it for yourself. Be pampered. Indulge. Love every minute!

 

5. YOU’RE ALREADY WORKING IT FOR THE WEDDING

You’ve been on a skin care regimen for the last six months and skipped the donuts in the conference room to make sure you look the best for your wedding day. Show off you hard work and document such a momentous time in your life.

 

6. YOU GET TO GO SHOPPING!

Women tend to put others first in their lives a lot of the time. Take some time out for yourself and go shopping for yourself! I work with my clients to make sure they get the best fitting lingerie for their bodies. The best part? All of the great pieces you purchase can make other appearances in more intimate settings!

 

7. MAKE IT A GIRL’S DAY OUT!

Need a little confidence boost to come in for a session? Make it a girl’s day out! Choose a few of your BFF’s and do a session together! Most boudoir photographers offer special girl’s day out collections that include a day of pampering, food, wine, and each lady getting her time in front of the camera!

 

8. IT WILL EMPOWER YOU

Getting treated like a celebrity for a few hours is great therapy for anyone! But wait until you get to see the photographs for the first time. You will be blown away. You will see how gorgeous you really are and it will put a little pep in your step!

 

9. IT’S A GREAT WAY TO CELEBRATE A MILESTONE

Have an anniversary coming up or just scored a well-deserved promotion? Why not get this time in your life documented in a gratifying way? Not only will you have gorgeous portraits of yourself, but when you look at them you’ll remember how amazing this time in your life was! Celebrate it!

 

10. YOU DESERVE IT

 

Side note:

Remember that you can wear whatever makes you feel sexy and confident; a boudoir session is all about you! When choosing a photographer, look for photographers that specialize in boudoir for the ultimate experience. Think about how you want to be photographed and look for those kinds of photographs in a photographer’s portfolio. Don’t put it off, now is the time to indulge yourself!

Rachel and Matt were recently married at The San Marco Preservation Hall, followed by a reception at Maggianos Little Italy. A few years ago we photographed Matt’s Sisters wedding and LOVED the idea of working with the family a second time. The day started off at Madison Avenue Hair Salon for some hair and makeup. All of the girls had some quality time together being pampered prior to the wedding. Rachel and her bridesmaids all traveled to the San Marco Preservation Hall to step into their gown and get ready for pre-wedding portraits. Matt and his crew got prepped at The Homewood Suites in the St. Johns Towncenter. After some fun and formal portraits, we were off to the preservation hall for the ceremony. We were able to squeeze a 1st touch in just after Rachel unveiled herself to her father, and then it was time to walk the isle. Plenty of emotions and smiles filled the front rows of the church as their families watched on… I do w/ a kiss and Rachel & Matt turned to be announced as husband and wife! Family portraits and wedding party photos followed the ceremony on the grass lawn in front of the church house, from there we headed to Maggianos for the party! Introduction, first dance, father daughter, and mother son dances were first on the list. Soon after an abundance of Italian food started to flow into the room for a family style banquet! Toasts, cutting the cake and other formalities carried out thru the evening while DJ William Perieria kept the dance floor moving. The day was a complete success and we are excited to share all of the images below!

Surprise Wedding! What??? Yes…. A Surprise wedding at The Jacksonville Public Library

I can’t even begin to explain how much fun it was to be a part of Christina & Ryan’s Jacksonville Library wedding. You’re probably wondering what the heck is a surprise wedding. How does that work?  That’s impossible to pull off… etc… etc… I can tell you that Christina & Ryan only knew the day and time they were getting married…. That’s it! Long story short, Ryan and Christina have two very busy schedules, so it had been difficult for them to find the time to plan. Ryan’s family LOVES surprises, so his sister Tracy jokingly said… ” You guys should just let me & mom plan your wedding for you! Let us worry about all of the details and you guy will have to do is get dressed, show up, get married, and have fun! ” Ryan thought it was genius and Christina got on board too! They provided a guest list, their budget, and who they would like to be in their wedding party. Christina picked her own wedding dress, but other than that, they gave mom and sister Tracy the green light to plan the best (and hopefully most fun) night of their lives!

I can tell you that it was one of, if not the most exciting wedding we had the pleasure of photographing. Blindfolding the groom at the hotel and putting him on a trolly ( that he probably thought was a city bus. ) to bringing him in thru the loading dock, and having him ride the libraries freight elevator to throw him off! The groomsmen even had him sit in some folding chairs in a large conference room explaining that this is where the dinner would be held. Ryan was growing concerned for sure. Christina’s morning was probably a little less hectic since I doubt the bridesmaids played many tricks on her, but she was about to meet with Ryan for a first look and venue unveiling! The bride and groom were lead up to the 3rd floor and placed back to back. Ryan still blind folded and Christina with her eyes closed. The two stood anxiously waiting unsure of what to expect and excite to see each other. 1, 2, 3 and they both opened their eyes in amazement! Taken back from the attention to detail and thought that mom and Tracy had put into this special day for them both. Ryan stood on the balcony overlooking the courtyard and fountains. His sister coming up the steps to find him with tears of joy. He and Christina were so thankful for everyone’s effort to make this day happen for them both!

Alex + Dalton | Bowing Oaks Plantation by Irrok Photography

Irrok Photography would like to congratulate Alex & Dalton on their recent marriage at Bowing Oaks Plantation. Odete and I both had such a great time working with them to capture all of the many, many fun moments. After 10+ years of wedding photography, I thought I had seen it all, but Dalton and his groomsmen, Alex and her Bridesmaids + The sincere emotion from his & her side of their family was amazing to witness. As photographers it is our jobs to capture and document all of the days moments, we do use our experience to provide tips, poses and seek out the best locations and lighting, but the most important part of the recipe is the bride, the groom, the newly wed couple, the bridal party, the family….. the people who are our subject for this special day are the most important part of this process. ( It doesn’t hurt to have a custom designed wedding venue or thousands of flowers and decor ), but the people tell the story and inspire us to capture it with style. I invite you to view the images below and read the bride and grooms recap of the day.

 

Alex: I have never been married before so when I showed up to Bowing Oaks on the day of my wedding, I had no clue what to expect. I tend to be a realist, so I was thinking of every possible thing that could happen, and go wrong. I was pleasantly surprised to realize that the day went flawlessly. From my coordinator, decorator, DJ, makeup artist to photographers I had the best “team” I think possible. We (the bride squad) started off our day early. We got to Bowing Oaks at 9 am to begin getting ready. We started off our day with mimosas, to calm the nerves and to celebrate my last few hours with my girls before becoming a wife! Ron and Odete get there around 1:00 pm to begin taking photos. Odete joined the girls, and Ron went to the guys. I am not a confident person, by any means. Odete got me out of my shell; she kept all of us laughing and made the entire process a blast. We also had a hiccup with my maid of honors dress. The zipper broke, and wouldn’t zip at all. Odete was grabbing her sewing kit from her bag and was ready to sew her in the dress if she couldn’t get it. The most emotional moment for all of us was the first look with my dad. I was looking out the window, and he tapped on my shoulder so that we would face each other for the first time. We all lost it; there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. It was a very special moment for all of us. I was looking out the window, and he tapped on my shoulder so that we would face each other for the first time. We all lost it; there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. It was a very special moment and I am so happy it was photographed. Now, on the other side of the venue, some craziness seemed to be occurring in the groomsman suite with Ron. I knew that my other half is crazy, but I was extremely shocked to see all of the photos of how crazy they got! All of the guys had so much fun with their photos. Next, we have the ceremony. I knew that Dalton would be in shock when I walked down the aisle but the reaction that happened was more emotional than any of us thought it would be. Dalton’s tears were infectious and everyone at the wedding had tears in their eyes. After the ceremony, we took pictures with our bridal party. All of us know each other pretty well, and it shows in the pictures. It would not have been the same without any of them. The reception was so much fun! Our DJ killed it, and we all had a blast dancing the remainder of the night away. For the exit, we gave out individual bubbles so everyone blew bubbles as we left to our exit. Our wedding was amazing, and I couldn’t be happier!
