A couple of weeks before For Your Eyes Boudoir Photography was showcased at a RAW natural born artist event, we had the pleasure of shooting with Denae and a couple of her friends. She really wanted to support us at the art show, but didn’t know how to explain to her husband, Darian, why she wanted to attend. The photos were a surprise for Darian for their one year anniversary, and Denae hadn’t even chosen her photos from her session to be edited.
So I had an idea...
DENAE: “Ben had the best idea ever in revealing my first anniversary gift to my husband at an art show For Your Eyes Boudoir was participating in. I told Darian that we were going on a surprise date night, and with Ben's help, I was able to surprise him with a photo from my session that Ben had hung up! Ben made it a surprise for me as well, because I had no idea what photo he had chosen to feature!”
I wanted to choose a photo that would grab Darian’s attention while at the same time highlight Denae’s beauty and sensuality equally. For the first time in 11 years of specializing boudoir photography, I was going to have the opportunity to witness a client’s significant other being surprised with my work, so obviously this moment had to be documented on video and shared.
DENAE: “I was incredibly anxious and excited before the show and could not have been more proud of myself once I saw the photo on display Ben had chosen! The look on Darian’s face was priceless… and the man that always has something to say, was speechless! He absolutely loved it!”
If you haven’t yet watched the video at the top of the blog, please do so now. It turns out Mr. Speechless actually did have something to say, and it was all good…
DARIAN: “When I saw Denae’s photo at the art show, I was in awe at the sight of her and felt truly blessed that she is mine... To see my wife display her beauty with confidence shocked me to no end, I was speechless... I couldn't possibly see this coming. I was excited, confused… well, I think the video speaks for itself. I felt a dozen different emotions, but especially LOVE!”
He couldn’t stop staring at the photo, even when I took a photo of both of them together.
DARIAN: “I'm proud that she truly stepped outside her comfort zone and was honored that she had boudoir photos taken for me...I would never imagine that my wife would even think of this, obviously I still can't believe it.”
DENAE: “I was astonished when I saw my photo! I never would've guessed I could take photos like that… and look so AMAZING! It was like being on the front page of a magazine! INSTANT SELF CONFIDENCE!
We love hearing testimonials from our clients, but rarely do we get to hear one from the significant other, so we’ll let Darian have the last word…
DARIAN: “Thank you Ben and Kaitlyn for your professionalism, being yourselves (funny & full of life) and your desire to bring such a masterpiece together. Your passion brought out the confidence in the woman I fell in love with and I can't thank you enough.”
