REAL BOUDOIR™ | Part I ~ “Miss V” In White | Lace lingerie, vintage cameras + A SPECIAL DISCOUNT FOR KNOTTY READERS!

Ok, first things first… the big announcement cometh: Vendor Love, The Knotty Bride’s Preferred Vendor Guide,  launches TOMORROW.  This is the first public announcement of that fact, so spread the word, my friends.  I cannot wait to unveil all that fabulous talent!

Now, onto more sexy, scantily clad items of business.

I have been so. excited. to bring this session to your eyes, for myriad reasons.  First, I’m gonna blow my wad (SHUT UP) and tell you the best part of today’s feature:

THE JOIELALA GIRLS ARE GIVING KNOTTY READERS 15% OFF THEIR BOUDOIR SESSIONS!  Just mention that you saw them featured on The Knotty Bride when you contact them, and BAM – 15% OFF, PRETTY LADIES.  So if you’ve got it in you, I think you should go for it… but you already knew that, didn’t you. ;)

Ok, moving on to reason #2… the “V” in Miss V has GOT to stand for “vixen,” because this girl is positively smokin’ in this shoot…

Reason #3… Miss V is the Prop Queen.  Just look at all of the absolutely adorable cameras she infused into the shoot…

Don’t you just love it?  … Personally, I want more of it…

And finally, reason #4… I would like to own each and every outfit featured today (both these white lace numbers, and the fabulous little black ones that are on their way in Part II of this feature).  And I don’t just want them for bedtime activities.  I want to sport them under my everyday clothes, every day, at all times.  Like, on the street, at the grocery store, in the shower… just, in general.  I want these pieces.  I mean, how freaking cute are they?

Now, listen up, ladies.  Because, when it comes to lookin’ good under the lights, there are few bits of advice more useful than those bits of advice offered by women who have experienced boudoir…

So, here’s what Miss V had to share with Knotty readers:

“I think every woman should at least have one boudoir shoot in their lifetime to capture their beauty.  It is a total confidence booster after you see the amazing photos!  It can be a gift for your special someone or just as a keepsake for yourself!  Why not?

Boudoir shoots are so much fun!  You get to dress up in cute outfits/lingerie and have your hair and make-up done.  What girl doesn’t love that?!  As a make-up artist, I knew that I would have to play up the make-up to have it show up nicely in photos…especially in natural light you want your make-up a little exaggerated.  I love the smokey “bedroom” eye look with a nude lip color, it’s timeless, and goes well with this kind of photo shoot.  Remember to always use gloss on your lips – it makes lips look fuller. ”

Photography: Shelby and Taryn of Joielala Photography

So, how incredibly gorgeous does she look in those shots?  And tell me, would you consider doing a boudoir shoot?  Don’t forget, Taryn and Shelby are offering 15% OFF TO KNOTTY READERS!  JUST MENTION THAT YOU SAW THIS FEATURE ON TKB!  And seriously, take advantage if you’ve got it in you… they do fabulous work!

Ohh – and if you decide to do one of these yourself, then here’s one last piece of advice you might remember from the last shoot we featured…

… a little bubbly goes a long way, ladies. ;)

    Love these pics. I did a boudoir shoot and I don’t think they came out this hot….at least IMO. I am way too critical though. I did allow my photographer to post them on her blog though.

    HOTNESS!! The full back tatoo is amazing. I have a secret wish that I could pull that off. It would be all flowers and dragons. Fabulous.

  5. Jenn on December 14, 2010

    I didnt realize boudoir could look this amazing/sophisticated. I hadn’t planned on doing it but it looks like so much fun!

  6. Shannon Grant on December 14, 2010

    This is gorgeous! We have yet to do a bridal inspired Boudoir shoot but are dying to!! Love that white lace…

  7. Lanie on December 14, 2010

  9. JM on December 14, 2010

    This is absolutely gorgeous. So tasteful – much more tasteful than other boudoir shoots I’ve seen in the past. And I love the props.

    Taryn and Shelby did an amazing job on this shoot! I 100% recommend having your boudoir shoot with them!

  12. Lena on December 14, 2010

    She is STUNNING, and I’m wild for all the gorgeous props she used! What a knock out!

  13. Alicia@CharityWedding on December 14, 2010

    Gorgeous! I would love to do one, but first I have to master my Zumba video. By master I mean get through the WHOLE 20 minutes w/o dying either from the activity or from laughing at how white I must look.

  14. Kristin @ Little Miss Bride to Be on December 14, 2010

    This shoot is smokin’. Total inspiration for me to hit the gym and get a shoot scheduled.

  15. Margaret on December 14, 2010

    Not much into tattoos but the lingerie is beautiful! I have been married for 32 years and still love to wear lingerie.

  16. Katherine on December 14, 2010

    saya sangat suka artikel ini. trimas

  19. Chris @ Red Silk Photos on February 21, 2017

    The vintage cameras are a great touch. I love the contrast between the hard lines of the cameras and the curves of the lace and her body. The gloves seem like a little much, but that is probably personal preference. Nice job on the shoot.
