Ingenue Boudoir
"Since that beautiful day I spent with Ingenue Boudoir last May, I have lived my life as a stronger, sexier, sassier and truly more liberated woman. Best decision I ever made, hubby would 110% agree . My experience with them has given me a permanent "swagger" in everything I do. Till we meet again lovely ladies..."

You can gift boudoir photos before you walk down the aisle or save them for your first anniversary. Traditionally the first wedding anniversary gift is paper. Or hell, just do it when you want to celebrate. Wear whatever makes you feel sexy and confident. A boudoir session is all about that and Heather, owner of Amour in the East Village, will help you with the right fit. Having beautiful pictures of yourself is the best excuse to indulge in a Boudoir shoot. You and your significant other will love and treasure them forever. And you’ll probably leave the shoot feeling stronger and sexier, a high that may take a while to come down from. It might be the permanent “swagger” to take you through life. 

If you're on the hunt for a beautifully modern hotel for your wedding day party, the AC Hotel by Marriott is ready to accommodate you. Enjoy the rooftop view at The Republic on Grand with drinks and apps, and stay in one of their large suites before and after you say "I do"!

Reasons why you should Boudoir: 

YOU’LL LOOK AMAZING.

A team of professionals will make you feel at ease and look your best with hair, makeup and styling. “Last 5, 10, or 15 pounds”? DON’T! First off, your beautiful! Secondly, professional photographers/stylists know how to pose you to flatter your body type.

A GREAT GIFT FOR YOU!

Show off your beauty and give yourself a confidence boost. And what may have started as a gift for your significant other may turn into a day of self-discovery and empowerment for you! 

GREAT GIFT FOR YOUR LOVED ONE

Imagine the look on your fiancé's face when you give the gift of a folio filled with sexy photos of YOU! They already think you're beautiful on your worst day, so show off how smoking hot you are. It may be a side of you they've never seen before!

IT WILL EMPOWER YOU

Getting treated like a queen for a few hours feels great! Most people often find the experience liberating, empowering and confidence building, and the photos themselves a bonus. You will see how gorgeous you really are and it will give you a new groove.

 

I revealed the photos to my husband last night and it was the first time I've seen him speechless in 12 years! He wasn't even able to form complete sentences for about 3 hours afterward. Once he was able to talk again, he said things like "I feel like I've won the lottery," "how did I get to be so lucky," "these should be in a gallery," and "I want to share these with everybody" He has so many favorites. Thanks again so much! So glad I made the decision to do this!
