This article features explicit images. Those of a sensitive disposition might want to check out some of the other engagement shoots we’ve featured in the past instead.
I must preface this feature by letting you all know that this is an explicit photo session, and one that not everyone will be comfortable looking at. But in the spirit of Rock n Roll Bride being about self-expression and doing whatever is right for you and your partner, I really wanted to share it! There are a lot of NSFW photos featured below and while I personally think they’re really tastefully done and the story behind them is one worth sharing, I understand that not everyone will agree.
Couple’s boudoir shoots are actually nothing new. For many, they are a really beautiful way to capture their relationship and genuine connection in an unforced, natural way. Some of the more raunchy shoots, such as this one, feature the couple mimicking having sex.
OK for those of you still reading, let’s begin by hearing from the couple themselves. I was keen speak to Charlie and Mark and find out what made them want to be photographed in such an intimate way for their engagement shoot.
“We chose to go with a more intimate shoot for a couple of reasons”, they said. “Both being creative (he is a photographer by trade) we actually take a lot of photos of each other and together, some being nudes and certainly more intimate. We both feel pretty comfortable in front of a camera and also we both felt very comfortable around Sarah, who photographed this session.”
There are some people that ooze cool by simply existing and I think Nancy and Boogie fall firmly into that camp! Even their names sound awesome together. They wanted their engagement shoot to be more of a fashion editorial rather than traditionally romantic.
They shot at the Rose Kennedy Greenway in Boston in front of a piece of art, a sinking yellow house created by Mark Reigelman. “While I was searching for possible locations, I stumbled upon this art piece my friend visited not too long ago”, Nancy explained. “Because of its unique style and since we’re big fans of art, I knew we had to somehow make it a part of our vision.”
It’s very rare that we feature engagement shoots on Rock n Roll Bride anymore, there are just too many awesome real weddings to share instead! However when Kelsey and Gavin’s Sin City inspired engagement shoot landed in my inbox, I knew it had to be published. I have a feeling you’re going to LOVE this too!
Their photographer, Pol, told me all about the session. “They’re set to get married on December 9th of this year. They have always a bit of pin up-ish (especially Kelsey) and we wanted to shy from the typical Utah nature/ landscape theme for their engagement shoot. Instead we decided to shoot around Salt lake city to get a sense of the winter urban vibe.”
