Brides-to-be get the Gok TreatmentHow do you feel about your body? When you’re planning your wedding you need your body confidence to be top-notch. If you’ve ever seen a TV makeover, have you wished that you had the confidence to stride down a catwalk just dressed in beautiful underwear? Getting a body-confidence makeover can be easier that you think.
Boudoir shoots help women look great naked or in beautiful underwear. The photographers can give tips to help you feel body confident on your big day:
Accentuate the best and dress the rest. Have an honest look at yourself in the mirror. For every one thing you want to pick on, find two things you like about yourself.
Forget trying to measure up to a perfect ideal. Once you realize that you are wonderful as you are, then you will start to feel great and therefore look great.
Stand tall. Even if your body is not striking, good posture can make all the difference. Pilates, light weights or yoga will help you improve your posture.
Get tips from the pros. As a photographer there are lots of ways they can help people look better. Aim to stand on a diagonal, with a twist at the waist to the front instead of facing your viewer straight on- this will naturally cinch you in. One leg in front of the other naturally slims the body. Drop your shoulders down and subtly arch your back, this will flatten your belly and make your boobs appear perkier.
If you want to take the next step to body confidence, why not have your own Gok-like naked photo session. It isn’t as scary as you might think and can help even the most blushing bride to be feel body confident. You don’t need to worry about posing - boudoir shoots are geared towards showing off the bits you like and disguising the bits you don't, using the best possible lighting for your shape - and once you’ve chosen your favourite photos, unwanted blemishes, spots, and even cellulite can be airbrushed out. There is no need to strip off completely - not showing so much can be just as sexy as revealing all - it's your decision. Good lingerie works well to show off your best features while covering areas you are not so happy with. You could, of course, wear your bridal lingerie or even just your veil…In the end, the most important thing is that you feel comfortable in your own skin, and that you realize that your body isn't perfect--no one's is.
Acknowledge that you are great as you are, especially when accentuating all the good bits - that is how to look and feel good nearly naked.

You can find many photographers in our wedding directory, but how about contacting the writer of this article Jo Wise from Jo Wise Photography. Jo has lots of ideas to help you feel confident if you go for a boudoir photo shoot. She says, “Accessorize, accentuate your nakedness with a prop or accessory. A necklace, scarf, or feather boa are great, but don't be afraid to go with something a little more unusual. This will give you something to work with if you are a little nervous, and also, tantalizingly, emphasizes your natural state. Great hair can help you feel confident and as you prepare for your big day you may want to try a few different style. Most important of all, you need a cut that suits you and is in proportion to the size of your body.” Every shoot Jo does includes refreshments, hair and make up (this is an add-on with their Classic package) and after your shoot you will have a private viewing to help choose your favourite images. All you need to do is pick from their range of all-inclusive packages and Jo will do the rest.
