Bridal Boudoir Photo Shoot | Why YOU should do one!
1. It will make you feel more comfortable in front of the camera
A boudoir session requires a lot of trust and guidance from your boudoir photographer. The sessions we have photographed for our brides have helped us connect and make brides even more comfortable with us on their wedding day. The more relaxed you are with us as your wedding photographers, the more natural and beautiful your wedding images will be! What I've also found as a photographer who does many boudoir sessions for my brides is that on their wedding day, each bride is even more excited and shows more confidence in front of the camera!
2. You get a sneak peak into your wedding day!
A boudoir session is often the first time you will actually get to wear your veil, your shoes, and your bridal lingerie... and you get to do it MONTHS before your wedding! Many times during a session we will se our bridal boudoir clients with their full hair and makeup done and their veil in and they'll say, "It feels real now! I can't believe I'm about to get married!" A boudoir session will help you get excited before the wedding AND give you a little sneak peak into how you'll feel on your wedding day!
3. It makes a great gift!
Your (soon-to-be) spouse sees you at your best and worst and still thinks you're incredibly beautiful. Imagine their face when you surprise them with an album full of professional boudoir photos on your wedding day! Bridal boudoir photos are the wedding gift for 2020.
Located in Sicklerville, Southern New Jersey, Brigalias is an incredible venue for couples looking for a romantic wedding. This is top-level venue with their close attention to detail and the personal touch of a family-owned business! The venue is well-known for its breathtaking grounds including multiple beautiful photo spots that our couples love to visit for their Brigalias wedding photos!
One of our favorite things about Brigalias Wedding Venue are the beautiful grounds! One place in particular stands out as the perfect spot for a first look! It is the beautiful foot bridge!
Brigalias is an all-in-one wedding venue fit for couples. With 2 stunning ceremony spaces you can get the elegant chapel wedding of your dreams or the NEW cozy and rustic barn ceremony space they just added! The chapel has floor-length windows with beautifully designed white columns and gold accents. The barn has every perfect rustic accent that will make your Brigalias wedding photos look beautiful year round! One of our couples Stephanie and Brian had the most incredible winter wedding in the Brigalias barn and it was absolutely stunning.
The party rages inside Brigalias’ grogeous ballrooms! They have 3 incredible ballrooms that are right out of a magazine or one of those sappy wedding Hallmark movies... not that I've ever watched one. . The new Grand Ballroom has a truly larger than life effect and with up-lights and your favorite decor your wedding will be elegant and unique. One of our couples, Stephanie and Brian, danced the night away in Brigalias’ beautiful ballroom.
With all of the amazing food at Brigalias its hard to save room for dessert BUT the choices are endless! There is an insane variety of cakes and other delicious treats. One of this South Jersey Photographers favorites is the flambe station! Not gonna lie... it makes for a pretty SWEET photo (see what I did there?) Stephanie and Brian showed off their amazing, cake at the reception, which had all guests in awe. Check out more of their Brigalias wedding photos below!

The following is a letter from a client that was so special to me i needed to share it!
Wedding Day- November 10, 2018. Best day of my life, but I made that mistake that everyone warns you about, “don’t skip out on a reputable photographer”. I went with someone affordable and decent, but little did I know he was not going to capture my wedding the way I imagined. I dabble in photography, so I have expectations and I did not feel the emotion at all in his pictures. I was happy with the family and group pictures, but not at all of the ones captured of my husband and I.
After months trying to reschedule a shoot with photographers, it never ended up happening. I pretty much gave up on the idea of getting them done, until I ran into an old high school friend who was the photographer at my best friend’s wedding. Tommy from TomTom Photo! My husband and I at the end of the night explained jokingly about how our photographer was rude, he did not do a good job, and we hated our photos. Then he came back with, “I’ll re-do them for you”. We didn’t think he was serious until he contacted me after the wedding and really wanted to set something up. We knew his work from social media and my other friend’s have used him in the past, so we were ecstatic!
Retake- November 10, 2019- We scheduled a re-do the day of our one-year anniversary. I did my own hair and makeup and I got to wear my dress again. My husband had a tux in the closest with a duck feather bow tie I bought specifically for the occasion and we met up at our house.
It felt so special to get back into my wedding dress again and seeing my husband dressed up (doesn’t happen often). It was like reliving that special day we said, “I do”. I got to do a different hair style since I regretted putting it up on my wedding day and included our pets which we couldn’t swing on our wedding day. We changed up the sceneries and did not feel pressured like you do on your wedding day to greet people and having to be in ten places at once. It was just my husband and I, oh and Tommy there to capture special moments. Tommy had the best ideas for poses and amazing backgrounds across the street from our house in our neighbor’s farm field. The sun was setting, and geese were flying all around us. The weather was perfect and so was the whole experience.
Now I have so many pictures to hold onto forever that I love. I’m so happy that we were able to re-do them. I recommend doing a fun shoot before donating, selling, or just not being able to fit into your wedding dress again. You spend all the money on your dress, might as well get more out of it, especially if you’re not happy with the ones from your big day. We could never thank Tommy with TomTom Photos enough for doing this for us, if it weren’t for him, I would have regretted never retaking our wedding photos.

Stephanie and Brian were my first wedding of 2020! A great couple to start off a great year! Throughout the day tears of joy and excitement flowed from the bride, groom, and their families as the excitement started to build for the big moment. As soon as we met Brian he had us laughing, and Stephanie's smile instantly had the whole room smiling with her. From the moment that Brian first saw Stephanie in her beautiful dress, you could instantly tell these two souls were incredibly in love. (I'm not crying you're crying!) Mike, my second photographer and I were so honored to capture these photos of the Bride and Groom at the beautiful Brigalias Wedding Venue! Paula and the staff were a dream to work with and the new Barn ceremony space was something out of a dream! Enjoy a sneak peek into their wedding!
