Paris Boudoir Photography

The definition of Boudoir is simply, “a woman’s private chambers.” Over time, this turned into a phrase that signified more than a room in a house—it alluded to the sensuality of women, the hidden mystery of the elusive female and her secretive ways.

Eventually, boudoir turned into an art expression. A way for women to capture the essence of their feminine nature—something artists have obsessed over for centuries.

This is where our story takes us. On the narrow alley ways of Paris, there’s a black door that leads to a flight of stairs winding to a penthouse suite. Here, two recently engaged lovers paused time for an intimate session that explored their physical connection and documented their easy, morning interactions.

I wanted to be carefully artful with this session and to exemplify the languid nature of lounging in bed and caressing a lover, so I slowed my shutter speed to soften the images and the gestures, keeping a sense of mystery and sensuality in the images.


I believe that moments like these are just as impactful as moments on our wedding days. This greater sense of who we are as a couples or lovers adds to the collective album of our lives together and to the fleeting moments we are allowed to share with the ones we love.

How fitting that we explored this French-inspired classic in a Parisian apartment overlooking the Eiffel Tower.


If you’re looking for a unique way to capture the simple intimacy you two have together, a modest boudoir session is exactly the thing. Elegantly sensual without the R rating and in the comfort of a place that feels like home…because it is.

The words I hear whenever I see these images are the final sigh Mitch gave Steph as he completed his vows to her. Between shaky breaths he said, “Oh Stephie, I love you more than words can say.” And sometimes it’s as simple as that.

This wedding venue offered a blank slate–white walls, simple chandeliers, large windows, and tall ceilings meant that Diana could design anything in that space. Keeping in line with L&J’s desire for simple, natural elements, they opted for white roses and peonies nestled into an abundance of greenery. For the ceremony, they chose simple cross-back chairs to mimic the wooden ladders of the apple orchard they faced and keep the entire affair organic and true to the location.

Autumn weddings are incredible on their own, but add a healthy dose of fall foliage and my al fresco dreams came true at this blush-inspired wedding day.
