boudoir session with bride + her maid of honor

Here’s a little known fact for ya – I’m so obsessed with classic Russian literature that one of my majors in college turned out to be Slavic Studies! So of course when Juli Kundera sent me a ‘Eugene Onegin’ themed bridal boudoir session I couldn’t have been more thrilled to publish it.

Eugene Onegin is written in iambic tetrameter (a rather unusual rhyme scheme) and explores life, love, convention, and passion. There really couldn’t be a more interesting and unique source of inspiration for such a stunning bridal boudoir session!

From Juli Kundera – “This tale tells the story of the bride’s morning with her maid of honor. There are romantic colors, morning light, delicate pink flowers and flowery laces all to compliment the exciting atmosphere when a girl gets married and her best friend is there to celebrate with her.

We wove romance throughout every part of this bridal boudoir shoot from the vintage style calligraphy to the bridal lingerie and decor!”

From Juli Kundera – “While dreaming of this inspiration shoot we were inspired by the novel ‘Eugene Onegin’ – a Russian classic by Alexander Pushkin and so we tried to recreate the image of the two sisters (Olga and Tatyana) in the story. One sister has a flamboyant character while the other is romantic and thoughtful. We incorporated a few touches of ballet inspiration into the editorial since it is an emotional moment in novel.”
