“There’s nothing I like more than opening up my inbox to find some amazing inspiration, and when I saw this session by the fabulous Angie Capri, there was a lot of oohing going on. Angie always shoots beautiful boudoir, but she really takes it up to a whole ‘nother level here, with an absolutely gorgeous palette, original concept, and spectacular images which serve to inspire not just visually, but in bringing confidence to brides to be. I also love how it’s sexy, but very tasteful – if the idea of posing in your undies isn’t for you, it just shows that a boudoir session can be as covered up as you want it to be without losing any of the spark! That’s why, alongside a bath lined with sequins (which let’s be honest, I want to basically live in now), my favorite detail is the mirror calligraphed with the words: ‘Confidence is the most beautiful accessory’. Spot on. That’s exactly true!” – Southbound Bride
We wanted to create a romantic Spanish inspired holiday boudoir shoot complete with yummy desserts and drinks in a fun rustic ranch setting full of character and confidence! The house seen in the video is over 100 years old, it was transported to what is now known as Gerlach Ranch in Martinez, California. The cast iron bathtub is the original tub from the home which was removed due to renovations years ago and discarded outside. When I discovered it, it was full of debris and garbage – not to mention home to lots of bugs! We cleaned it out, gave it new life and it served as the focal point for this boudoir shoot – I mean how gorgeous is it now draped in sparkly gold sequins, with a beautiful woman to boot? Can’t get much better than that! It’s old rustic charm adds much of the character we were looking for.
Another one of my favorite pieces from the shoot, is the vintage mirror with hand written calligraphy that reads, “Confidence is the most beautiful accessory” because this idea is what I believe every woman should subscribe to in order to feel as authentically beautiful and whole as she is meant to feel. I hope to inspire more women to feel that way through our boudoir shoots :)
