Naturally, because Jaques and Richelle Scheepers were wedding photographers first, they immediately started to help brides create jaw-dropping gifts in The Boudoir Studio to give to their fiancé for the wedding day.
One day, a bride asked them to take photos of her groom opening up his wedding gift from her. They had helped her create a boudoir album a few months prior. As they were shooting his reaction on that wedding day morning, they were shocked!!!
Here was a groom looking at his wife-to-be in lingerie, and what did he do? He literally cried.
Through his tears, he kept saying how beautiful she was and that he could not believe that she did this for him.
He felt so LOVED! Yes...loved!
Jaques and Richelle left that hotel room changed people! Their eyes were as big as saucers. “Jaques...this is literally impacting people and marriages”, Richelle said. THEY WERE HOOKED!
When Jaques and Richelle started to hear all of the life-changing stories from so many of their clients, their goal for the shoot went from creating a gift for their spouse or fiancé to impacting her confidence so much that she finally saw the beauty that was there all along.
All of a sudden, the gift became a complete bonus!
For Jaques, his goal is for you to see yourself as ART!
Jaques is a multiple-times published Boudoir photographer and artist and people drive hours to come get photographed by him for Boudoir.
Magazines and models seek him out for his dark and moody style of photography that leaves a woman seeing herself as a beautiful piece of art.
He was born and raised in South Africa, where he created nature and wildlife art, but also where the female body is celebrated and seen as Art.
Jaques always tells me and the clients that he wants her to see herself in a way that she has never seen before! Jaques says ‘My goal is to see her face light up when she sees her images and to be in disbelief that it’s actually her! I want her to be proud to show her fiancé or spouse the final products!
He always tells our clients that if these images don't blow your spouse's mind, we have failed, LOL!! It should be the very best gift they have EVER received!
Personally, for me (Richelle), being a women who struggled with self-image and confidence issues my entire life, there is something that happens inside of me when I see a woman finally let go and stop covering her insecurities during the shoot, it's something ammmazing to watch!
There is something that happens inside me when I watch her looking at her final images in the office for the first time and she looks over at me with tears in her eyes.
There is something that happens to me when she giggles of excitement and hides her face because she literally can’t believe that it’s her in the images!
When these things happen, I KNOW that she actually finally sees her beauty, and my heart literally becomes so full, because I know how that feels!
''Never in a million years did I think that our little studio would literally impact the women of our community to this extent, and I am so happy!!''
Whether I'm on the phone answering your questions prior to booking, on the phone helping you prepare for your booked session, sitting with you celebrating the results of your shoot, I'm your cheerleader!
And you better believe that I'm going to help you feel loved, welcome and beautiful, BECAUSE YOU ARE!
And you can NEVER argue that point with me, because the images are proof! :)
