BACHELORETTE BOUDOIR IN KAMLOOPS, BC

MARCH, 2022

I was truly honoured to surprise this bride to be with a boudoir session at her bachelorette. There is an amazing feeling that comes with being trusted enough to take these kinds of photos. I travelled to Sun Peaks in Kamloops, British Columbia and took boudoir photos during this bachelorette. The bride of course and any other attendee that wanted to participate.

Understandably so, most people need some time to warm up and feel comfortable. Of course for a bachelorette some shots always help. BUT I think it's something special to see people reactions when they see themselves. 

I think I favor bridal boudoir versus traditional, I think there is an elegance to incorporating the veil. 

I want to take a quick moment to thank these beautiful ladies for letting me share their photos. Boudoir photographers probably have the hardest times building their portfolios because clients are less willing to have their photos shared online. Which is completely okay, and honestly I was the same when I had my boudoir photos done. So thank you so much for letting me.

I do not offer boudoir sessions often. I normally only do these as a bachelorette marathon or as part of my wedding packages. I do not have a studio space or a client closet that relates to boudoir photography. One day I wish to have a studio, but I have no plans on building my boudoir client closet. It isn't the niche I am working towards! But I do LOVE offering it when I can.

My bridal boudoir is priced the same as my engagement session, and is sometimes switched out for one in their packages. My bachelorette boudoir is priced differently. There are many factors including number of participants & location. So please contact me if you are interested! 

Each women receives a "mini boudoir" session. Outfits are planned in advance. I have "add ons" like hair & makeup, charcuterie boards & massages. Each package can be customized to fit each event. From me just showing and taking pictures to a full on luxury event :)

"So so happy with my boudoir photo shoot with Silken! I was very nervous and she made me feel so comfortable and confident! It’s been less than 2 days and she has already sent me a couple photos that I am in love with! I never smile with my teeth in photos and she caught a candid photo of me smiling that truly makes me feel beautiful! 10/10 would recommend!"

and lets not forget group shots
