Boudoir For Two?
Most couples who contact me for couples or engagement portraits want an outdoor session filled with natural light, soft colors and hand holding. When Chantal and Tom contacted me, I was expecting to pack up the gear and head out to one of Tokyo's many scenic parks or to a tree lined waterway outside of the city. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that this couple wanted nothing ordinary. They wanted a couple's boudoir session.
Seeing that I frequently shoot boudoir photography, this newly engaged couple decided to contact me to capture their romantic side. Usually, boudoir sessions are commission by individuals, not couples. Yet, Chantal and Tom went even further past the norm. The love birds didn't want a soft and frilly couples boudoir set to celebrate their engagement. They wanted dark and moody images.
I was very impressed that Chantal and Tom had done their homework and were able to communicate exactly what they envisioned for their shoot. They wanted romantic, chic and sexy photographs that were still tasteful and could be shared with their friends (maybe not their moms). While not a typical couple's session, I had a blast with these two and hope that they can keep the passion alive for years to come.
Where are the rest of the images from this couples boudoir set? Those are for Chantal and Tom only. Congrats on the engagement lovebirds!
