Boudoir Photography: Vancouver, Langley, Victoria


bou·doir 
n.
A woman's private sitting room, dressing room, or bedroom.


Whenever I've been commissioned to take boudoir photos the first thought I have is how honoured I feel to be chosen to document something so personal and private. The confidence that these ladies show is unreal. First choosing to do the shoot is a brave and courageous move. In a society where there is such an emphasis on 'how we look', 'what is beauty' and all the other pressures of being a woman - these women confidently choose to take intimate portraiture of themselves and feel good in their skin. Embracing yourself and your beauty to show it in front of the camera is hard and these women that I've photographed confidently went forward and I'm so grateful to share some of their images with you. With the ladies permission - here are some of the photographs from the recent marathon.

Langley Wedding Photographers - Mark & Grace

It was an incredibly warm spring day at the end of March, and the perfect day for a backyard wedding in Langley. Mark & Grace said their vows in their very intimate wedding with the sunshine beaming down. With family present, the two read vows from their Tim Horton's cups - as Tim Horton's had quite a bit to do with the couples love story. A persistent Mark consistently asking if Grace would join him for coffee at Tim Hortons and her smart retort of "if you don't mind, please bring me one" while on shift at their work. Finally she caved, and joined him - and that was 5 years ago...

Intimate weddings has been always a such a pleasure for us to photograph as adding two bodies to the guest list is quite a big decision. Choosing us because the couple thinks we will only add to their wedding is such an honour. This is when choosing the "right fit" of photographer is exceptionally important. Your wedding day isn't just an ordinary day its something so much more.

We met Mark & Grace's family, and celebrated along side them at the reception at the club house in Red Maple Park. A brand new clubhouse and it was beautifully set up for their catered wedding by 5 Star Catering. With laughter, and smiles the day turned into night. Music escaped out of the clubhouse's open patio doors. Mark & Grace shared their first dance as husband and wife, and shortly after joined by parents and Ian (Mark's brother). As the night moved on, still with a bit of warmth in the air - Grace's daughters enjoyed soaking their feet in the pool - such a cute photo of sisters.

Thank you again Mark & Grace - not enough words can be said for the gratitude I feel in being apart of such a special day and getting to know the two of you. Your generosity and fun-loving personalities has been so amazing to spend time with. May you both only have the very best. Congratulations!
