Valentine's Love

In the spirit of V-Day, we thought it would be apropos to do a boudoir post! Sure, it's the sexiest day of the year but why stop there? A boudoir photo session is a great way to keep the love going all year round and makes the perfect wedding, birthday or just-because gift for that special someone in your life! YOU! (But we don't think your guy will complain either *winks*)

As if you need an excuse to get pampered and feel empowered, a dreamy photo session with Nomo Akisawa of Simply Sweet Photography and make-up by Jasmine Hoffman is the perfect time to get all dolled up and embrace your unique beauty.

Bridal Boudoir Photoshoot Vancouver
And don’t think that you have to be a perfect 0 to do boudoir, look like a Victoria’s Secret model, or be as young. Boudoir is for every woman every shape & size, every age, and beauty is truly in everyone. You just have to leave it up to the photographer to embrace it. Boudoir is for the every day average woman – you DO NOT have to be a model.
— Nomo Akisawa, Photographer

Don’t be nervous to do one. I will guide and pose you, and use my creative eye to get all the right angles. You don’t walk in a model, but by the end of the session, I promise that you will feel like one! Stop giving yourself excuses as to why you can’t do one. Just do it!

Elsa Corsi

It could be said that Elsa Corsi was destined to become a jewellery designer. Heralding from a long line of Italian shoemakers turned merchants, it was only natural that she inherit a passionate eye and skill to pursue aesthetic beauty. It was in 2006, to celebrate her own wedding that she came out with a dedicated collection of bridal jewellery. Clients were attracted to the vintage technique mastered in the collection and were thrilled to have their own piece of heirloom jewellery. Her bridal and special occasion jewellery has been sought out by the city’s top stylists and fashion editors for photo shoots and Real Brides wearing Elsa Corsi jewellery are regularly featured online and in print in Real Weddings, Weddingbelles, Grace Ormonde and Wedluxe Magazine.

Makeup Artist Jasmine Hoffman has a special talent for always picking the perfect lashes! These ones are by SLMissGlam in Dangerously Glam...they feel so luxurious on, if only I really was born with it!

The outfit was designed by Kim Ironmonger of Valencienne Bridal in Toronto. Valencienne is our Toronto retail partner and you can find us there three times a year for our designer attended Trunk Shows. Kim is a magnificent designer and her attention to detail and craftsmanship is enough to make your head spin!
