Would you ever do a boudoir photo shoot?

Before you answer the question, take a look at this amazing Raleigh pool party bridal boudoir photo shoot by Barlow Boudoir. The reason boudoir photo shoots has surged back into popularity is because the new generation is taking the concept into their own hands – making it far more creative and fun. This group of Raleigh bridesmaids is obviously having the time of their lives. Smiling, giggling, and splashing around in bathing suits they feel beautiful and confident in. No thongs or g-straps necessary. Just an adorable, white, one-piece “WIFEY” bathing suit paired with matching black, one-piece, bridesmaids bathing suits.

Give Your Bridesmaids the Wedding Gift of a Boudoir Photo Shoot, an Unforgettable Memory

Another thing that has evolved with the bridal boudoir photo shoot is the why. Common thought with boudoir photos of yesterday was that they were “for” the groom; boudoir photos were gifted to him on the wedding day. That can certainly still be done – but today, the bridal boudoir photo shoot is more about empowerment and personal experience.

Gathering up all your best girl friends for a boudoir photo shoot is an amazing gift. Maybe you would rather have a bff photo shoot than a bachelorette party. What could be more fun than a photo shoot with your best friends? Coordinate your outfits and props, pick the location, and book the photographer today. Barlow Boudoir helped this group of Raleigh bridesmaids find summer inspired pool floats, flower crowns, and cocktail glasses for their pool party boudoir photo shoot.
