Boudior Battle- Does Your Photog's Gender Matter?

Boudior photography is a super hot (pun intended) trend, and why not? You feel like your most beautiful self on your wedding day, "nails done, hair done, everything did", and that goes a long way in boosting your confidence to take some seductive photos for your future Mister. But who is better to capture you at your sexiest-- a male photographer or a female one? We asked two of our lovely Wedding Advisors, Nadine and Renee, to weigh in on this steamy topic…

Nadine's Side (Go Girl!)

Who knows a woman's body better than another woman? A woman will know how to make you feel more comfortable since she can relate. She can also help with make-up and costume changes (if you want a few options for your hubby-to-be). Plus if you do want to switch up your outfits or try different poses with different layers, you can do that right in front of her and feel ok, AND have more time to take photos instead of dealing with "Come in! Now leave. Now come in again!" A female photographer can capture the soft and sensual side of a boudoir shoot by making it feel intimate. Most of all, your overall comfort level will be much higher with a female, and that is a big part of showing off your relaxed and sexy side, which is probably the one your man wants to see most of all!

Renee's Side (Girl, Bye!)

Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus, so a male photographer will see the female body differently than a female photographer would (in a good way!). I have experience with a New Jersey photographer that is very successful in creating a set of tasteful sensual and sexually suggestive images for his brides to show off to their husbands. And he does is all by allowing the bride to be super comfortable with each step of the process! He makes sure the bride is relaxed in the room before he comes in to do the boudoir shots. He also shows the bride other boudoir shots he has taken and recommends one of her bridesmaids be in the room while he shoots them so she feels totally at ease. I think that women often perform differently in front of a male photographer than they do in front of female ones. Men can bring out that extra boost of sexiness in a woman- her poses may naturally be more seductive, without being sleazy. And hey, every woman wants to feel sexy on her wedding day!

So there you have it…who would you choose to bring out YOUR sexy side?
