Planning a wedding is stressful for any couple-to-be. From the catering and venue to choosing the right photographer, there’s so much to consider leading up to your special day.

One element you may not have considered adding to the mix is bridal boudoir photography. Boudoir is a French word that refers to a woman’s bedroom or private dressing room.

Though it has changed over time, boudoir photography has been around since the 1920s and aims to make women feel both empowered and confident in celebrating their femininity.

In recent years, boudoir has grown in popularity as women indulge in this special way to celebrate themselves.

Based in the Triangle, Matt D Boudoir is a boudoir photography studio run by Matt and Katie Dettelbach, a husband and wife duo who started their business in 2019. 

Whether your boudoir shoot is an intimate gift for your partner-to-be, an anniversary present or even a gift for yourself, Matt and Katie prioritize making their clients feel comfortable and bold as they work to help you discover the natural beauty of your body.

Why Matt D Boudoir?

Many people believe boudoir photography has to be extremely serious in order to exude confidence and beauty. The Dettelbachs beg to differ, and that’s one of the many things that helps separate their service from other boudoir photographers. 

Often taking shots of their clients laughing and smiling, they bring a positive and uplifting energy to their shoots that not only shows clients that boudoir should be fun, but also helps them relax as they explore their playful side.

Matt D Boudoir caters each shoot to the client’s specific needs. They work with you throughout the entire process, including a wardrobe consultation, make-up and hairstyling to fit your personality. Matt and Katie work hard to ensure each client receives a personalized experience that showcases their best self.

Trusting the process

When it comes to boudoir, you may be hesitant and uncomfortable at first. Matt and Katie strive to make every client feel comfortable, confident and sexy by the end of the process.

Boudoir photography is both very personal and vulnerable, so the photographer duo works with you to create photos that cater to your wants and needs. When you work with them, you will leave each session realizing just how beautiful and valuable you are.

Creating photos with you

Matt and Katie believe that your boudoir shoot should be an uplifting and empowering process that they work to provide by allowing each client’s unique personalities to shine through.
