NEW YEAR’S EVE INSPIRATION BY MERARI PHOTOGRAPHY

New Year's Eve Anniversary by Merari Photography // Featured on Boudoir Collective As 2015 is coming to an end, we wanted to find a way to celebrate New Year’s Eve with you all. As luck would have it, this dazzling session submitted by Merari Photography showed up in our inbox. The perfect mix of ease and elegance, it serves as New Year’s Eve inspiration whether you’re celebrating an anniversary or just a night in with your partner.

The session was the brainchild of Haydee from Sweetest Celebrations, along with a whole team of artists to make the vision a reality. She wanted to do an elegant session for a couple celebrating their anniversary in style, to capture something romantic, a little sexy and a lot of lighthearted fun. Which sounds perfect for a couple celebrating a first anniversary on New Year’s Eve! Here’s what Haydee shared about the session:

A sweet couple decides to go away for the weekend to celebrate their first wedding anniversary. She brings a delicate and flirty lingerie piece she purchased just for the occasion and she slips it on while her love brings her breakfast in bed. He pops the champagne and they lost to another year of wedded bliss. As they start getting ready for a night out, they decide they much prefer to light some candles and stay in.

The bold color palette features black and gold with a touch of cranberry and is perfect in a clean, white setting. These colors evoke a sense of mystery and romance with a touch of drama. The overall look is natural and simple, beginning with soft makeup and loose waves and evolves into a simple braided up-do that is more elegant and perfect for an evening out.
