Top Ten reasons Why Women Don’t Do a Boudoir Shoot and Why that’s Such a Shame!

TOP TEN REASONS NOT TO DO BOUDOIR SHOOT

  1. I’m too fat – I am an expert in making curvy women look and feel fabulous, it’s what I do. It’s so good to feel great right now!

  2. I’m too old – I just shot a 74 year old lady’s Boudoir shoot and she looked smoking hot! You’re never, ever too old! (see her pic in the slide show above)

  3. I look terrible in photos – Finding the right photographer who understands how to help you relax will bring out your inner beauty, I promise!

  4. I’m not a model – An experienced portrait photographer will coach you and guide you down to your fingertips to make you look effortlessly gorgeous.

  5. I’m too nervous – Breathing and relaxation techniques are seamlessly incorporated into your session to allow you the time to get comfortable.

  6. I’m embarrassed – A warm and caring photographer will talk you through and make sure they understand what you would be comfortable with, we also come to your home anywhere in Melbourne, so you don’t even have to leave the house!

  7. I’m scared of what my partner will think – Having a female photographer eliminates any jealousy, and he is welcome to be a part of the process.

  8. I have nothing to wear – This is a great excuse to go shopping! I will send you a list of suggestions on what to wear or buy, it doesn’t have to be expensive! (see free download below)

  9. I cant afford it – Payment plans are available such as take-home lay-by.

  10. My friends and family wont approve – Your photos will be private and discreet, delivered exclusively to you, no one needs to know, but I’ll bet you’ll want to show them off!

Amy & Chris’ Wedding at Ripponlea Estate.

Amy was so excited to get into her gorgeous gown, and you could see how perfect it was for her as soon as she put it on. Even more excitement built as her family gathered to open the present from Fiancé Chris for their wedding day. Amy literally jumped up and down as soon as she saw that it was a hot air balloon ride, something she had been wishing for. Their life together is sure to be full of plenty of fun and adventures right from the beginning!

Amy and Chris chose to have their ceremony and reception at Ripponlea Estate for it’s romantic historical building and botanic gardens. There are so many little hidden gems from a fernery to waterfalls and stunning florals, not to mention the gorgeous expansive lawns and lake.

Celebrant John Francis  held the most beautiful ceremony right in front of the shimmering lake and Amy & Chris’ beautiful  smiles spread quickly to their friends and family. A huge round of applause started off the reception with a bang, the Ripponlea ballroom sparkled with classic elegance and the laughter and happiness continued late in the night.

Tara and Danny’s Wedding at Zonzo Estate Yarra Valley

Tara’s sister expertly popped the bubbly and the wedding celebrations were off & running!!
Her bridesmaids looked so pretty & glamorous in their Tiffany blue robes, which just happened to match Tara’s engagement ring box and invite colour scheme – I had a suspicion that Tara’s attention to detail meant that this wedding would be a really great one, and it sure was!
Soon Tara was making her way determinedly along the abandoned train tracks at Zonzo to meet up with Danny for their “first look” portraits before the ceremony. Danny’s huge smile said it all when he saw her walking towards him in the bright sunlight. They hugged and laughed and kissed hello, then the whole bridal party got together for pre wedding photos,  so they could spend more time catching up with their guests later.
Back up to Zonzo, Danny’s Dad ushered the guests with his bagpipes blasting into Zonzo’s fabulous barn, which was all lit up with beautiful lights and filled with flowers, wine and a moose head.
Cloud9 Celebration’s gorgeous Shannon was conducting one of her last ceremonies before taking time off for maternity leave, still managing to rock high heels, and so full of energy! Tara & Danny’s ceremony was beautifully written by Shannon, full of wonderful memories and hilarious stories.
After the massive group photo, we grabbed a refreshing home-made lemonade and Zonzo’s beautiful wines started flowing as the guests relaxed & caught up with friends and family.
The smell of freshly baked wood fired pizzas lured everyone into the reception, where Grandpa took the floor and kicked the night off with a hilarious joke about a coffin on an Irish kitchen table!
Fairy lights and candles glowed warmly, as each speech became funnier than the last. And the rest, as they say, is history…..
