“All I ever wanted was to be a sexy bride, and actually, I think I’ve turned into a romantic bride.”—Poppy Delevingne

In a prior post, I said that when clients ask me what they should wear for an intimate portraiture shoot, it can sometimes be challenging to answer, but my ultimate suggestion is why not have fun with it?

That happened recently when I suggested to a repeat client that we photograph her wearing bridal style lingerie, complete with veil. She thought it was the dumbest idea that she ever heard and told her husband that, even though she ordered an inexpensive veil from Amazon just for this shoot.

I also suggested that she wear a white bra and panties and well as a white garter belt and white shoes, although you can see them in today’s featured image. While this kind of art direction goes beyond the kind of suggestion that I normally give a client but we had worked together the year before and I thought this would be an interesting fantasy outfit for her.

She still wasn’t sure as she put on the outfit but I thought that she looked gorgeous and sexy. After we made the first shot and I showed it to her, she agreed with me that is was “amazing.” For the record, this is the fourth shot of this particular series that we made that day. We went on through several other outfits during the Extended Studio Shoot we did, but this was my favorite.
