Brisbane Wedding Photography | Photo of the Day

Today’s Wedding Photo of the Day is from Debie & Stephen’s wedding. I just love this photograph. It is of Debie and her Dad dancing together during the reception. I wish more people had Father Daughter Dances during their reception. I think it is a very special moment. This moment was especially special as Debie lives overseas and it was a wedding celebration in Australia that would create beautiful memories for her family to think of when they missed her being home. So special. This is why I love photographing weddings.


Brisbane Boudoir Photography | Lingerie Inspiration

Nicole | Boudoir | Brisbane | 23rd April 2014

Over the past couple of months I have been photographing lots and lots of boudoir shoots and one of the main questions that I get asked is “What do I bring to a shoot?” As well as a beautiful cocktail dress, accessories and shoes, lingerie is the main element of what we will be photographing for a boudoir session. There are so many beautiful places to buy lingerie from, so I thought I would create a blog post with some lingerie inspiration.

If you want to get an idea of what type of lingerie that works well for boudoir, then you should head over to Pinterest and check out my inspiration boards. My pinterest name is: nbpnicole . I have lots of pinterest boards with boudoir, glamour, hair and make up and props to give you a starting point of what to bring with you to your session.

I love scouring the web for different clothing ideas for boudoir and glamour shoots. There are so many amazing outfits that I would love to photograph. I am slowly building up more and more props that everyone can use in their shoot. It is so exciting!

And here are some lingerie websites that have beautiful lingerie perfect for a shoot:

Bra’s & Things -
Honey Birdette -
Simone Perele -
Pleasure State -
Big Girls Don’t Cry –

For Accessories:
I love photographing the accessories as much as the lingerie. A beautiful necklace with a pair of black knickers, or a feather fan, or a hand-made garter. All of these details are perfect for boudoir.

Kitten D’amour -
Lovisa -
Equip -
Collette -
Etsy -
Homebodii -

For Shoes:
A sexy pair of heels can make you feel gorgeous no matter what you are wearing. The higher the better. And you can’t go wrong with a sexy black pair of pumps.

Zu Shoes -
Novo -
Wittner -
Louboutin -

At the end of the day, boudoir photography is all about looking and feeling sexy and what you bring should reflect that combined with your own personality. These are just a few sites that I have found handy to be able to create a beautiful boudoir look.

Brisbane Boudoir Photography | Miss S – Boudoir Photo of the Day

The Boudoir Photo of the Day is the gorgeous Miss S. I just LOVE this photo!! Miss S has taken a few lessons in Burlesque and wanted to include her beautiful feather fans in the shoot. I just love how the deep greeny/blue feathers shows off the gorgeous reddish copper tones of her hair. Such beautiful textures. I really want to invest in some feather fans in the studio; they were so much fun to play with!


Brisbane Wedding Photographer | Photo of the Day

Today’s Wedding Photo of the Day is the group wedding guest photo with a difference. Mark and Tanya got married over at Morteon Island at Tangalooma Resort on the beach and as part of the photography, they wanted to create a wedding photo with a difference – a group shot photographed from a helicopter. This was my first ever experience photographing out of a helicopter and it was super exciting. I left my second shooter on the beach to organise the group, while I went up in the helicopter to fly up and down the beach. How cool is the result? I was also able to capture some beautiful scenery shots from the helicopter which complimented their album wonderfully.


Brisbane Boudoir Photography | The Experience… As told by Bianca…

Bianca | Boudoir | Annerley Portrait Studio | 16th April 2014


Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of capturing the beautiful Bianca for a boudoir session. Bianca was very nervous at the start of the shoot, but by the end she was rocking it!! Bianca is getting married later this year, so as well as doing the shoot for herself she is also gifting a handful of images to her husband to be. It was so much fun creating these beautiful photographs for you. Here is Bianca’s interview about her boudoir experience:

Why did you book a boudoir session with Nicole Barralet Photography?

Bianca: It was a gift from my makeup artist that i booked for the wedding, Kara.. And i though well why not?

What does boudoir photography mean to you?

Bianca: I guess to me it means feeling confident and sexy in the bedroom, but in a classy way.

How did you find the experience of being photographed by Nicole?

Bianca: I was very nervous when I was planning to go and when I got there , but as soon as I turned up a lot of my fear went away… I was made to feel safe and not judged, it was a good experience.

What was your fiancé’s reaction to his wedding gift?

Bianca: He has seen some, not the bridal styles pics and he loves them!!!

So here is a little slideshow with just a selection of photographs from Bianca’s session.

And here is Bianca’s testimonial about her boudoir experience. And I must admit, this testimonial brought a tear to my eye. I am so grateful that I have been able to help Bianca feel a little bit more confident about her body and show her that she truly is a beautiful girl both on the inside and the outside. This is why I love photographing boudoir sessions so much.
