A delicate figure, shawled by an ethereal, embellished, sheer flowing maxi veil, in this renaissance inspired bridal boudoir in Tuscany.
Echoing the immaculate, free-spirited mood of Spring, and channelling the portraiture of Boccaccio’s maiden-like femme- demure, affectionate, soft- we get caught up in an era-defining romantic vision.
Aside from a time to pause, between bridal routines and customs, and perhaps rollick with refinement in heavenly textures, boudoir photography is a sincere, gender fluid art. What is interesting, what singles it out, is not its conductivity to sensuality and passion, but how through its soft dynamics a woman perceives her own natural beauty, her character and eventually herself.
We love to capture these moments when a bride realises how spell-binding she actually is and unapologetically allows for her body, spirituality, and beauty-conscious personality to unfold. Bridal boudoir photography creates a new legacy for women to accept and love who they are, a gift of empowerment that does not spell “coquette”, but a woman who -thoughtful as she is of her beloved- dares to be her own open, gorgeous self.
Then, when I find a flower that seems
Like to the object of my dreams,
I gather it and kiss it there,
I flatter it in accents fair,
My heart outpour, my soul stoop down,
Then weave it in a fragrant crown
Among my flaxen locks to wear
