This is a first for Belle & Chic, I don’t think we’ve ever featured a boudoir session on the blog before. And it’s not that I don’t like them, quite to the contrary. But I do think they are hard to photograph, so I guess I was just waiting for the perfect boudoir – sensual and elegant – to come along. And then these images from Instante Fotografia and Lounge Fotografia landed in my inbox. And I knew that this is what I would have loved to give to my husband as a wedding gift.
From Instante Fotografia: “We had been wanting to do a boudoir for some time. So we started looking for a location, and at first we had a hotel room in mind, but nothing seemed quite right. So then we thought of doing it outside. A few days before the shoot, we were dinning with Luís and Marta from Lounge Fotografia and asked them if they wanted to come. Luís accepted and took his Contax 645 for a spin. And the rest is history…”
Beautiful history. I used Lounge‘s stronger black and white and Instante‘s creamy colors in post, and I am in love with the result. And don’t forget to scroll all the way down for the video, where you can see more of the beautiful location!
