A couples shoot is the Ultimate Play Date at Brystan Studios. If you want to give your girl or man a truly thrilling and sexy surprise, gift wrap one of our Gift Certificates for a Couples Shoot. As a portrait photographer for over 25 years, it is still exciting and rewarding to see that spark in the eyes of a couple in love. I see this powerful love connection on a daily basis when a man joins his wife or girlfriend for their viewing presentation in our theater room to see her boudoir session portraits for the very first time.
A couples shoot takes the sizzle factor up to a whole new level. Not only do I get to reveal the woman’s best angles and uncover her amazing beauty, but I get to explore that magical and intangible love connection between the two of them.
I’ve got to tell you it’s been the best year of my life and I can’t imagine it any other way. Sure there’s been challenges. Just imagine what life with 2 artists (me, the photographer and Michael, the musician) under the same roof can be like. However, the adventures we’ve explored together and the totally amazing good times far outweigh the challenges. Besides that, we are fans of comedy and drama and both of us bring plenty of both to the table!
Yes, We Do Weddings
Many of you have asked about our wedding over these past months so we wanted to share our photos and highlight video from the ceremony and reception. I also want to thank my amazing photography team at Brystan Studios for the excellent coverage they provided, as you will notice in our highlight video and in the gallery below. Since we’re known by reputation as a portrait studio, I’m often asked if we do weddings. As you can see, the answer is yes! See more of our wedding and couples photography here. If you or someone you know is getting married, let Brystan Studios help you celebrate marriage.
How do I prepare for a photo shoot? I get this question daily. Here’s what I tell our clients. The most important thing is to keep it simple, relax and have fun. This applies to everyone for any type of shoot.
How do I prepare for a boudoir shoot? Do I bring my own wardrobe? Do I do my own hair & make-up? Do I spray tan? Can I bring a friend for support? All of these are great questions. You’ll want to bring a beautiful black bra & panties with you and thigh high’s if you want to wear them. If you’re doing a bridal or a softer look, bring a beautiful white (or light colored) bra and panties and thigh highs. Feel free to bring a sexy bustier for your shoot. Over the years, we’ve invested in several beautiful items that you are welcome to use. We’ve got beautiful wraps, jewelry, hats, gloves and gorgeous feather boas.
We have a large wardrobe, hair and make-up room. You can upgrade your shoot to include hair & make-up if you would like. We ask that all clients come with their hair styled as they normally wear it and we will add soft curls & spray to their hair. If we are doing your make-up, we like to do the full make-up for you. We’ve got every colors for every skin tone. Our photographers are also highly trained make-up artists.
Then there’s the spray tan question. No, no, no, please don’t spray tan. Spray tans on occasion can be nice but never before a shoot. You just don’t know how the color will turn out or how even the coverage will be. You also wouldn’t want any of the color to rub off on your clothes or the sheets during the shoot.
We know how important it is to bring a friend for moral support. Boudoir shoots can be a little intimidating if you haven’t done one before. Please feel free to bring a friend with you however, for your sake, we don’t allow friends, boyfriends or husbands on the set. We want you to feel your most comfortable and not self conscious.
Last but not least, don’t wait until your body is in “perfect shape”. Most of us never feel like we’re in the best shape. Trust that our photographers will play upon your finest features and create beautiful works of art for you.
Nothing says “I love you” quite like a Brystan Studios photo shoot! Capture the heart of your relationship with a one of a kind portrait of you and your significant other. Give it as a gift or keep it for yourself to fall in love again and again.
