The vintage boudoir style is everywhere right now and it really seems to be sparking people’s imaginations! I love how different people perceive things in their own unique way… Obviously my recently shoot was miles away in style to this one sent to me the other day by Courtney Wilson, but the brief was the same – to create some stunning boudoir images with a vintage flair.
Courtney told me all about her inspiration behind this shoot:
There was an image from Destry Rides Again (1939) where Marlene Deitrich is posed oh-so-sensually in her deluxe boudoir. I saw this image and was completely inspired to theme a shoot around it (the black and white shot was my interpretation of the actual image). The model is my sister, Eva, and she was a very willing subject on a rainy day at my home. After ransacking the whole house, we pulled together our favorite vintage accessories and went to town! Eva wore all her own clothes and I styled the shoot myself. her amazing shoes were from Shoegasm in Manhattan.
I’ve got a feeling you’re going to love this detail-heavy dance-fest. The moody light, the swing band, the bride in her stunning yellow gown, the cupcakes, the portraits…yep this is one pretty damn cool wedding.
Andrew & Aye got married atThe Thaxton in Louis, MO. They converted the indie venue into their speakeasy and swing-dance themed wedding. Both the bride & groom wore custom made outfits – the dress was made by Toni Whitaker and his suit was by Duchess Clothier. The fabulousKim Massie band provided the entertainment.
Oh Lord I must contain my excitement. This is just the type of wedding that Rock n Roll Bride was created for and just the type of wedding that sends me weak at the knees. You’ll see why, believe me!
I was actually lucky enough to be able to share a little sneaky peak of Matt & Danielle’s wedding by way of their photo booth pictures back in November and we all knew from then that this was gonna be a goodie. A photo booth fit to bursting with that many tattooed bodies can never be a bad thing!
Edit: For everybody who’s been asking, Danielle’s (vegan!) shoes were by Bordello.
