I personally believe that a boudoir photo session is a great way to pamper yourself— And Whether my clients are traveling from outside of the area, or they live locally, I often get the question about other activities and experiences to do in Savannah before and after our shoot to enhance the indulgent experience even more. I LOVE this question, so I’ve compiled a list of things to do in and around Savannah that will perfectly add to the occasion.
Y’all come to me with creative ideas for your boudoir photos. You may be doing a solo session, or it may be a group event, like you and your bridal party booking full or mini sessions for your bachelorette party. Whatever the occasion, let me share some great ways to spoil yourself in Savannah.
