Competition: Win a Boudoir Photography Shoot in Galway!

Today’s we have something extra special – Bride & Joy’s first competition!

It’s all thanks to Clare from Core Photography whose blog post yesterday got us all thinking about Boudoir Photography… and now we have a boudoir photography session up for grabs for one lucky reader.

Boudoir photography is a new trend for ladies who want to celebrate their form and have some fun doing it. Many will get the photographs as a gift for their other half, this is especially popular with brides-t0-be as a wedding gift for their fiances.

The prize is a Quickie Boudoir Session, which includes:

  • Application of make up by a professional make up artist
  • An hour-long studio shoot, including two outfit and set changes
  • An online gallery for one week to view and proof your images
  • One 10X8 print in a black presentation folder (you will have the option of purchasing more if you wish).
